June Colllabor88 featuring U.F.O

June's theme for Collabor88, which is To The Lighthouse, has inspired so many incredible designs for this round. The color palate of faded reds, blues, grays and lavender, remind me of past summer vacations on the the beach's of Cape Cod. The designers have created everything from relaxed cotton casuals to kitschy sailor motifs. Some of my favorite items from this round were created by the super talented Charming Meiler of  ::{u.f.o}::.She went all out and made a cool casual maxi dress, as well as this AMAZING Sailor Boyish Outfit!


Gyorgyna Larnia of LaGyo, created a huge Pirate and Sailor Collection for June's Collabor88 as well. So I had no problem finding the perfect Sailor Hat, which she obviously created for the sailor part of her collection. The Hat Rose is separate and can also be worn separately as a rose, like I did in previous posts. It also comes with a color change HUD that has 9 colors to choose from, making it a breeze to match with just about anything.


While I was dipping into Gyo's amazing Collabor88 collection, I found this gorgeous Shell Necklace and Earrings. In fact, there were so many wonderful accessories made for this round, that I decided to add an Anchor Necklace from (Yummy).
The fabulous one-sided braided hair is called Oceana and is yet another Collabor88 exclusive from TRUTH. I seriously love the fact that he managed to weave a scarf into the braid. The scarf's texture can also be changed via HUD. 
Please make sure you get over to Collabor88 ASAP, if you haven't already, and demo all the above items. In fact, DEMO everything that you can find there! LOL! 
Oh! I almost forgot, Snow Martiel of BenS Beauty has been releasing a ton of amazing new shoes that are made to be worn with Slinks avatar enhanced mesh feet! Her Grace Platform sandals went perfectly with this outfit! They come in a tong of beautiful colors, so make sure you grab yourself a few pairs.
I know I am probably forgot to mention a few items, so please forgive me if I did. I try to mention everything in my post, but sometimes it is impossible or would just be way too long. LOL! I only post items I absolutely adore, so if it is in here, that means I LOVE it! Thankfully, everything is listed in the credit. So, with that said, here are my LMs and Credits:

Summer Time!

June's Collabor88 is another serious hit! All of the designers created "To The Lighthouse" themed items, in tones of steel blue, khaki, terracotta, beige and tan. All the light and sun washed shades that make you reminisce about past vacations at the ocean. I really LOVE this round! For this post, I wanted to create a laid back and casual feel with primarily Collabor88 exclusives, so here goes...
I am a huge fan of this relaxed Summer look from Sunami Beck of Emery. It is composed of beautifully made mesh separates, which include this-off shoulder Imogen Sweater that and coordinating Hailey Summer Shorts. Of course they can mixed match with other items, but I really liked both pieces together.

Isn't this hair AMAZING? It is the latest from Bubbles Clawtooth of Clawtooth for Collabor88, called Under the Sea.The style is absolutely gorgeous and it comes with star fish accessory, which is texture-change. You have got to love that, especially since you match it to whatever outfit you are wearing. You can also choose not wear it at all!
The talented aida Ewing of  -Glam Affair-, created a stunning new skin for June's Collabor88, called Summer! Summer is soooooooo lovely and comes in 8 summer inspired make-ups and a choice of 4 skin tones. As always, there are 8 different brow shades to choose from that are embedded into the skin. There is also a pack of 16 lipsticks on tattoo layers, so please make sure you demo this skin ASAP!

Snow Martiel of :..:: BenS Beauty ::., created these beautiful and bold Florina Necklace and Earrings, They come with a texture-change script that allows you choose just about any color imaginable for the stones. You can also choose from gold, black and silver metals. So make sure you check this out at her mainstore!
Gyorgyna Larnia of LaGyo, went all out again for June's Collabor88, by creating a ton of wonderful items!For this post I chose to wear her Whale Tail Necklace and Pirate Nose Earring! Both of these perfectly rendered items are available in gold and silver metals and are another Collabor88 MUST!

Oh! One more thing! Charming Meiler of ::{u.f.o}::  created these uber adorable Intro Run Slip On sneakers for The Mens Dept. I love the streamlined looked to these kicks, which can be worn with almost any casual attire. She made them in both a male and female versions that can be easily re-sized and edited to fit Slink and Just Design's bare flat feet (if you so choose). I chose to wear them sans mesh feet for once and they look great! So run and pick-up yourself up a pair in one of the many fabulous colors!
Can you see the cute anklet that I am wearing? It is another one of Caelyn Hancroft's amazing ankle bracelets. This is her Zodiac anklet and you can change your Zodiac sign via a HUD, as well as choosing from Gold and Silver metals! Another must have!
So with that said, here are your LMs and Credits:
