Collabor 88 August - Razzle Dazzle

When I found out the theme of Collabor 88 for August I was quite excited. Razzle Dazzle invokes images of the roaring 20's in my head and the creators for this month did not let me down!

This is going to be the biggest post I've ever attempted... so bare with me, I've got lots to share!
I'll post the specific credits for each pic right underneath to avoid confusion... and then add the basic stuff I've used in all pictures at the end!

To start off I'm going to show you what I think is my favourite piece from Collabor88 this month...

The Razzle Dazzle dress from ISON.

When I saw it I immediately fell in love. It's utter perfection and Harry has seriously outdone himself on this one. Hands down the best thing ISON have ever released.

Dress - ISON - Dazzle Gown - Grey (Collabor88)
Shoes - Lassitude & Ennui - Boudior Mules - Black
Necklace - Maxi Gossamer - Celeste's Sparkly Heart - Short Silver
Hair - Wasabi Pills - Claudette - Cinnamon
Pose - Exposeur - Singles Special - 21

Next up, also from ISON is the Razzle Dazzle vest and pants.

Honestly looking at the vendor I was a bit unsure about the pants. However I do have a serious respect for ISON's creations so I had to try the demo.

As soon as the demo rezzed on me I realised just how mistaken I was. They fit like a dream, they look wonderful and if you had a similar reaction to me and didn't try the demo I suggest you go back and try the demo.

Don't miss out on these pants.

I had to team it with the Alexa Black Choker Pearls from Maxi Gossamer which are available at The Black Fair 2013. It opened today at 12pm so it's a bit packed full right now, so you can either fight the lag or wait a few days!

On a more casual and lighter note I snapped up this slip dress from Tres Blah. Not one of my usual go to designers but the past two rounds of Collabor88 Tres Blah have really impressed me!

Love the colour on this and comes in a normal or sheer fabric.

No where near finished yet, so you might need to run and make a cup of tea! I'm just kidding, don't you dare go anywhere, I've got too much left to show you!

Tee*fy has become a recent favourite of mine and I love the flapper-esque look on this outfit. It's actually a separate top and pants so you can mix and match colours, or team it up with other items from Tee*fy or other designers.

Personally I love that... I feel like I'm getting the most out of my money!

Top - Tee*fy - Lillian Halter Top - Pink (Collabor88)
Skirt - Tee*fy - Florence Skirt - Pink (Collabor88)

Hair - Truth - Sam - Marmalade w/roots (old gift)
Pose - Bang - Female FLF - 10

Now to something formal and delicious. I love, love, LOVE the slinky look of this dress from Hucci. It's sexy and hugs all the right curves. I see myself going back for more colours when the crowds die down a little.

Dress - Hucci - Uden Dress - Midnight (Collabor88)
Necklace - Maxi Gossamer - Paris Black Diamond - Choker Silver
Hair - Truth - Josie - Marmalade w/roots
Pose - Glitterati - Formality - 10

I remember shopping at Cynful back when I first joined SL. I was always a big fan of their stuff back then and with the mesh they have really, massively stepped up their game.

This dress is delightful. Ruffly and cute and reminds me of a cross between a prom dress and a flapper girl. Too cute to resist and some lovely colours to choose from.

Dress - Cynful - The Shimmy Dress - Pearl Champagne (Collabor88)
Necklace - Maxi Gossamer - Khalessi's Temptation - Short
Bracelet - LVLE - Eun Bracelet - Black
Hair - Truth - Teddy - Marmalade w/roots

And now before you think this is going to go on forever... this is the final piece from Collabor88

This dress is breath taking. I loved it from the second I saw the sneaky peek on Flickr and when I finally got my hands on it... in love! It has a lovely floaty quality and is classy and sexy. Baiastice always seems to deliver some beautiful dresses and this is no exception!
