Going Baroque @ Collabor88!

I couldn’t resist the truly horrible pun that is my title, but I did go a little crazy at this HUGE Baroque themed, anniversary edition of Collabor88. You still have time to go by and grab so many great items… including an adorable special edition KittyCats kitten. The popularity of KittyCatS actually made this round rather hard to get into early in the month, so if you tried and got frustrated, make sure to go back before it’s over!

I have two looks to share with you… this first one is a bit edgier than my normal look, but it was a ton of fun to create! I loved the mesh leather pants from Tres Blah right away, and I decided they’d be a great match to the sexy mesh tank from Auxiliary. The shoes are from ISON, and I just loved them, too. I added the owl necklace from Maxi Gossamer and this sassy, funky hair from Ploom, and voila, a look was born.

I was wearing Estella – one of my beloved skins from Izzie’s – and I paired it with Izzie’s goth eyeliner, and I just had to show off my metallic gradient nails, which also come from Izzie’s. You can also get a better look at the adorable owl necklace from Maxi Gossamer. I’m wearing it in silver, but it comes with gold, too. Also, this is the short version, but a long version (in both silver and gold) is included.

My second look was inspired by the Thrive hair from Elikatira. It’s so glamorous… and I know I’m hardly the first to say so, but it conjures up images of Jessica Rabbit. I find that the Elikatira reds aren’t quite as dark as I like my hair, but despite being mesh, this hair can be tinted. So, mine is a tinted version of Red 08. I knew when I saw this dress from Valentina E. Couture that the Thrive hair would compliment it perfectly.

Baroque I tossed on the SLink peep toe shoes I got from Vintage Fair to complete the look.

For this look, I went with my Elena skin, again from Izzie’s (I might be addicted to her skins). I also decided to forgo jewelry or accessories, as I felt the dress and hair required no embellishments. However, this dress does come with a cute headpiece… I just didn’t want to hide this hair. It’s so sleek and sophisticated.
