Today post is all about highlight some cute whimsical items I purchased. I'm highlighting, Moon Amore's Papillion Dreams Dress in Pink and Breathe's Limerance Heels in Nude. Now, I have to admit Breathe's shoes were the main reason why I tped into Collab88. I had peeked at previews on flickr and knew immediately that I would be sporting them. What I adore most about these shoes is the fact that they have little changeable butterflies that sit along the back. To me they create the perfect accent to these heels.
Now, I totally don't want to overlook Moon Amore's dress so let me get right down to why I purchased this dress. It was the butterflies. I know I'm a total girl; but I just couldn't resist when I saw the butterfly designs that accentuate this dress. Not only to they cling to the side of the dress a sensation of flight; but you can also find butterflies along the back of the dress as well. The Papillion dress is very shear so please be advised that if you are wearing this dress you may show some skin; which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
This month's theme is Daydream, Make sure you head on over to Collab88 and pick up some goodies of your own. I still have a few more items to post and it seems that I can't stop myself from visiting Collab88 and picking up a few items each time I visit.
After what felt like an eternity I finally managed to make my way into
Collab88. (It was really only little over a week, but in SL time that does
feel like an eternity.) What I found when I TPed in didn't disappoint me
but rather lifted my spirits. This round of Collab88 is fantastic, I
really can't fan girl enough about it. I now know why it took so long to
actually get into the sim. There is just an abundant of things to look
at. I must have spent a little over an hour looking through all the
vendors and making my first round of choices. I promise you won't be disappointed visiting.
The moment I saw LODE's face accessory it brought to mind the image of Collective Soul's album cover, Dosage. So today's post is inspired by that image; instead of butterflies the Collective Soul album had bees falling out of a woman's mouth. So I am trying my best to invoke that image in today's post.
I will be posting some more items from this month's Collab88 in the upcoming days so please stay tuned for more butterfly themed goodies.

It was Miss Scarlett .....in the kitchen ......with the monkey wrench.... OK, I'm totally making a CLUE reference with today's post, but I can't help it. When I stumbled upon Valentina's newest design I was completely struck with this image in my mind.
Now, I totally love Valentina's designs so please don't take my next set of lines as harsh criticism of this brand; however, I'm going to mention a few thing that I adore about this dress and things I don't really enjoy all that much. Let's start off off with the good.
First off, Color. Valentina's Aura Gown in Scarlet is a deep rich red color that is sure to turn heads. It has a sensual flow to the bodice and I adore how much exposed skin you can see on the back. This dress is very fancy and formal. Now, for something I'm not such a fan of, the train. I both love and dislike this train for two reasons. I love that it is sculpted so beautifully and draws attention to the backside, super sexy; however, I am not a fan that the train is so stiff. I can't really see the flexibility of this dress when dancing because it would look silly carrying it around a formal setting. However, for photos I see this dress being an excellent prop. If I could change one thing on this dress it would be the train. I would love to see this dress in a version that didn't include the train. it would be perfect at this point to wear in all formal settings.
Now back to my Clue reference. I imagine that Miss Scarlett would wear something like this at a dinner party right before the murder took place in Clue. She would then look so seductively at the other dinner guests and no one would question weather or not she committed the crime. I also imagine it might get her into a few mishaps with the other dinner guests.
I closed my eyes blew out the candle and wished....for ....you.....
My RL birthday is today and I've just turned 33. I have to admit it, I'm really not feeling it this year. Don't get me wrong I've had my share of Birthday good wishes. My family took me out to dinner and work colleagues were especially nice. I feel thankful to have these people in my life; yet I can't help but feel that there is something missing. That little spark that gets you through the day; that special person that lets you know it's ok. Not that I need someone; but it's sure nice to have. Tonight I have Taylor Swift's, "Begin again" on repeat because it is a reminder that I'm hopeful that I might be able begin again. After all, if I can say that I have learned anything over the last year, it is this... I'm resilient and able to endure....even if I get a little lost from time to time.
When I first heard about Abranimations is celebrating their 11th year in SL, I was super excited for them. It's not everyday that you hit such a great achievement. If you are not familiar with Abranimations, you are seriously missing out on some SL fun. Not only does Abranimations have animations, but they also carry an assortment of, "toys and games". The little things that make SL fun. Some of my favorite things from Abranimations include: a mud wrestle pit, flying carpet, a cannon that launches you in the air, wack a mole, arm wrestling and bumper cars. If you haven't visited Abranimations yet, what are you waiting for? It's one of the must stop shops in SL.
In honor of Abranimations, 11th year in SL they are hosting a hunt. Now this hunt is in total Abranimations style. Little otters have captured dance animations and are hiding them around the sims. I actually completed the hunt earlier this week and managed to add a little over 50 new dances to my inventory. With all the dances in my inventory, I decided to create a video to show them. I didn't use all the dances I acquired in the hunt, but every animation in the video is from Abranimations.
Abranimations hunt will last for the rest of the month. Make sure you TP over and pick up some animations of your own.
It becomes hard to breathe, the stocking drawing tighter around her neckline as petite de morte approaches.
Today, I'm going to be showcasing two items from ROMP's summer fair. I have to admit that I have been having fun working up the last few posts on the blog; but sadly all good things must come to an end or at least a there comes a point where you take a little break. So I will be putting away the naughty for a little while to focus on other things. Who knows what might catch my attention next. Now, let's get back to ROMP's summer fair.
When I first saw Goth1c0's Asphyxia Erotic Stockings I became a little intrigued not because I'm a fan of autoerotic asphyxiation, (I'm much more of a vanilla, plain Jane person.) but rather because Goth1c0 has done such a great job creating this Role-play enhancement. Asphyxia is rigged mesh and an original design. It feels soft, lightweight and sheer giving the illusion of a real stocking wrapped around your neck.
The second thing I would like to highlight in today's post are the shoes on my feet. Nardcotix released two sets of shoes for ROMP'S summer fair Lola and Jordan heels. I'm wearing the Jordan heels in the photo up above. I really like the Jordan heels because they are so well made. Finding shoes in SL that are beautifully sculpted and work with the Maitreya Mesh Body has been a challenge for me so these shoes have been a dream.
ROMP's summer fair is open until July 17th, so make sure you make your way over to pick up some items of your own.
