In my part of the world, we are on the summer end of spring, and that means I’m on the lookout for some great casual, warm-weather apparel! If you are too, the June round of Collabor88 has got you covered. This month’s theme is “Summer Punch”, and is full of so much goodness — be sure to go over and check out the goods for yourself!

This look is just the thing for whatever casual activities you have planned on the grid. I don’t wear red a lot, but cherries and summer just go together, and I couldn’t resist.

Punk Princess

One of my favorite shopping events, Collabor88, is winding down the April round, but you still have a couple of days to do some shopping. You can do it while you’re waiting for some of the new events to clear out a bit! The theme for this round is Pretty in Punk, and even if you think that punk isn’t your style, it might be worth checking out. There are a lot of fun items that will add a little spice to just about any style!

I’m dressed up in classic Maitreya, updated to fit the Lara mesh body. These pieces, and all the Maitreya pieces fitted for the mesh body, could not be easier to wear — I’m finding myself living in them these days. The punk-inspired pieces from Maxi Gossamer add a fun, eclectic touch.

To see more of the room I’m sitting in, including several decor items from the current round of Collabor88, check out my post at Home on the Grid.

a dark alley and a bad idea

It all started with this skirt…

The skirt is one of the newest designs from Blueberry, available at Uber this month. Like many of you, I’ve been watching this brand closely, not only for fun designs, but for clothing designed to fit mesh bodies. This skirt is a stunning fit on my Maitreya mesh body, and comes in a large array of color options. The fun design can be styled any number of ways, from sexy, to summery cute, to role-play garb. As you can see, I embraced my inner bad girl.

Also available at Uber this month is the gorgeous Grazia skin from Glam Affair, and the Steffi hair from Olive. Don’t forget to demo, and note that you can re-size the unrigged version of this hair — I had to, since I have a humongous head!

One of my favorite things in recent years is the ability to use makeups to personalize your look in so many different ways. The Skin Fair includes many cosmetic artists, and one of my favorites is Elymode. It’s so good to see Ely back and creating. Her work with color and textures is extraordinarily skilled. This beautiful eye makeup is just one of several offerings available at the fair. She’s also offering a dollarbie sample pack that you can use to try out the various makeup styles. These are not demos, but actual wearable products, so definitely check that out!

Skin Fair ends this weekend, so don’t delay in getting over there if this event has been on your list! There are some helpful links at the bottom of the post to plan your visit. You’ve got ’til the 29th!

This is Glam Affair’s Skin Fair offering, Katra. Katra looks beautiful in all skin tones, but I thought it was particularly suited for some of the darker tones. I’m wearing the India tone in the picture. As always, Glam Affair offers many options to customize a look, including tattoo lips and nose shading.

Skin Fair is in its final week, and as the crowds have died down, this is the ideal time to check it out!

I’m wearing a very pretty, youngish skin from a new-to-me designer, Esode. The package includes tons of options, including a shape (not worn here). I think this would be a great all-you-need starter pack for an affordable price.

Skin Fair is in its final week, so don’t delay in getting over there if you’re looking for a new skin, or makeup to personalize you current skin! This is a great opportunity to try out your options, all in one place. Check out the helpful links at the bottom of the post to plan your visit. You’ve got ’til the 29th!

I’m wearing the latest Tuli skin, Neve. It’s always good to see Tuli resurface — I spent innumerable hours in her shop back in my newbie days, and her skins have always been a staple in my inventory. Neve has a beautiful, soft quality, and a fairly distinctive look. She comes with a variety of makeups, and appliers for your mesh body parts.

I’m not entirely sure how this photo developed — it’s a little dark for the month of love and hearts, which was not my intention. I love LOVE and all that celebrates it! I think this came from my affection for all things black and white … and started with this lovely dress from Valentina E., a previous FaMESHed release.

In church last week I saw a beautiful third grader wearing a fluffy dress and a sparkly tiara. She was participating in a right of passage in our church, and she honored the occasion with her most precious attire. I love SL because I can wear a gown and tiara whenever I am moved to do so. Very precious.

Find this tiara and the rest of the jewelry set in a variety of colors at the Liaison Collaborative for a few more days.
