The many discount sales that seem to dominate my regular shopping routine can be a bit hit and miss for me personally. I never get excited about any one in particular - OK I get excited about the Arcade, but then that's not really shopping is it? - and sometimes I can miss the round entirely if none of the pretties on offer in it draw my attention, yet like last month, this month's round of Collabor88 made me get a little excited and I battled my way through the crowd to get in!
The look I came up with was vastly inspired by this gorgeous dress from The Sea Hole... Not always a fan of tentacles - there have been some rather dodgy ones in my SL past - I fell in love with this dress the moment I saw it, and it was then only an issue of which colour was I going to get. The top is like a vintage, sexy yet understated bustier and the flared skirt with its tentacle design is so girlie and perfect for the warm summer months to come! But I was excited to see also that it looked adorable with the curly 'Forgotten' Hair from Magika and my favourite hair Tentacles - that should be something every fashionable Mermaid needs - from Panda Express.
In my head it became like a mermaid coming on land for a few hours - I guess I was thinking of the Little Mermaid only having her human legs until "sunset on the third day" - but instead of coming to see her prince she was coming shopping LOL... This time around she bought an adorable bobble head "Kitschy Kitten" called Mao from Intrigue Co, and a Hula Lamp from Schadenfreude and these things will make a kick butt addition to her collection of things from on land.
