Hand-Painted Adventures

When I first saw this particular pattern of the Hollie jumpsuit from Osmia, I fell in love. I was also struck with a sense of deja vu because for the life of me, I couldn’t figure out where I’d been reminded of this pattern before. So with that missing piece of inspiration, Ms. Hollie has been sitting in my inventory just waiting to come out.

So yesterday I was browsing through Pinterest and my obsession with home decorating and lo’ and behold, there it was. These hand-painted terracotta Italian tiles. You know the ones- as seen on back-splashes and fountains and the like.

Although the Rewind Event ended a couple of days ago, Hollie and I were finally able to catch up over a beautiful Merlot, talk about our mutual love of the sea and create an ensemble that reminds us of those breezy Italian summers.

Have you ever had a home decor meets fashion spark of inspiration? I’d love to hear about it!

Perfect

Have you ever had a song so stuck in your head that it toys with your emotions? The new song by Ed Sheeran is doing that to me. I can’t stop singing it!

Ironically, the title fits the design of this new sweater by Tetra. Perfect! It’s just long enough to be worn as a dress, or paired with pants or tights and I am absolutely envious of the frilly side ruffles.

I went a little daring and paired the shortness of the sweater with fishnets and thigh high boots from Empire, available at the new round of Collabor88.

On a side rant note, a friend and I were discussing the changes in events over the years. I mean, whatever happened to the Collabor88 of years ago, where most items were just 88L? Now, you’re lucky to find something less than twice that. I get that mesh has advanced and the effort that goes into some of these really amazing creations is worth the extra bucks. Heck, I know I buy my fair share without even glancing at the price. But maybe its just me when I feel that what used to be a bargain event for all avatars has become something that not everyone can afford. There are definitely still too many new avatars out there that need the influence of a good event with top creators to get their foot in the door of non-noobness.

What are your thoughts?
