A lot of years ago I did the A-Z challenge that Willow Zander ran. A bloggers challenge, but not limited to only bloggers, everyone was invited to have a whirl at it. She has brought it back, and it has been four years since I last did it, and oh my goodness I tracked down the pics from the last time, and I barely recognised myself. I remember making up one look specifically but some of the others I didn’t even know they were me.
Now it seems I got as far as “I” last time, time constraints and all that, and Whimsy and I have often talked about it, picking it back up and so on. Today I decided to be naughty and start at the end, because well I am a big believer in bloggers fate, and Zaara has released another wonderful item for Collabor88, so it just seemed to be saying ME ME ME choose ME.
I am loosely following the rules though, because while in the past every item was of the letter, I really want to make it more about the Store name if possible so chose two Z’s to feature. The rest of the items are from those other letters :).
This is not Zaara’s first foray into scarves, and while the last that I remember were gorgeous sculpts versions, these mesh ones just blow those away. I hope she goes all out with more options for her store in the coming months, as the weather is definitely permitting for it. You get rigged tight and rigged for over clothing options as well as an unrigged version, so you are definitely covered shape and gender wise.
Using the other clothes option, I went with another recent release of Zaara’s that is this lovely tunic shirt dress she released a few weeks ago. It was made as a Maitreya sizing, but fits Slink body really well with the help of some alpha cuts using the body hud. You can purchase solid or floral print options, and there are sheer versions as well. Definitely something easy to wear and a great go to item for a quick dress and dash look, that with the help of some great leggings and so on, will look great.
While on the leggings stockings kind of bandwagon though, I am putting it out there that Zaara turns her much older leggings collection into appliers for mesh bodies, because those were gorgeous, and we need that kind of staple in our wardrobes – just saying.
I actually went with some zebra stockings this time though, because well Z and all that.
The other Z feature is Zerkalo, I have a few bits and pieces from gachas from them over the past year, but these items are also C88 pieces. The cute side-table, the champagne bucket and glasses, and the trees that I shrunk down and made table décor instead….love modify décor, you can have such fun with it. The pieces bring that holiday vibe into the home.
Carrying on with the black and red I grabbed this great tartan chair, could not resist the cookies, and the horse toy is a divine nod to hand-crafted toys of old.
Rounding out the red, with these gorgeous new boots, that fit like a dream and were the perfect cherry red to compliment my whole ensemble. I feel very festive indeed.
Now you can all see me do Z and think, we better catch up, Sasy is already at the end….maybe we will meet in the middle
