That Old Black Magic Called Love

A new round of Collabor88 has arrived for October! Just when you think it can't any better than the last cycle, it does! For October the theme is "Black Magic". Think sleek structured lines, soft leathers and lace details. All in tones of black, brown, purple, teal and tan. It is impossible to pick a favorite item this round, so I chose to wear the first thing I saw in my messy inventory, which was this gorgeous 'Dakota Corset Gown' from the uber talented Azure Electricteeth of Tee*fy. What makes this gown particularity special, is that is comes with 4 wear options! You can wear it as gown, like I am wearing in the below pics. It also can be worn as chic mini dress - strapless or with a sheer overlay. You can also just wear the bottom part of the gown as skirt. This dress can be worn so many different ways, it is just up to you how you choose to style it.

TRUTH HAIR Vida - Light Blondes,Glam Affair - Lucy - Snow - 03 A & Teefy Dakota Corset Gown Full Black for Oct C88

Claire Messenger of N-core has been releasing so many beautiful new shoes lately. Her latest release is called "SHAE". I love how this fabulous heel is made up of thick sexy leather straps that are adorned with a shiny buckle. This is a definite wardrobe must!


I was having a really hard time deciding on accessories. So I decided to show you two different looks. In the above pics, I could not resist wearing this brilliant mask 'Up-To-No-Good Mask' from Polyester Partridge of (Yummy). It is also a Collabor88 exclusive this month.
In the below pic, I decides to go with this seriously lovely "Vlora" headpiece, which was created by Chirzaka Vlodovic of *LODE* Headwear. This floral headpiece is to die for and comes in a ton of colors too. You can pick it up at L'accessoires. 
I also went with two different skins. The first skin, which I am wearing in the above two pics, is Glam Affair's 'Lucy' in a snow skin tone. However, I messed-up. I thought it was still available at TDR Fusion, but it is no longer there. I am so sorry about this. On a brighter note, aida Ewing of Glam Affair released 4 more make-ups of her latest 'Neva' skin line for Collabor88. It is available in Artic and Jamaica skin tones. 


Truth Hawks just recently released a couple gorgeous new updos. I am in LOVE with this braided updo, which is called "Vida", that has perfectly whispy tendrils framing my avatar's face. 
Maxi Gossamer outdid herself again with this 'Shadow Cross' necklace. This too is a Collabor88 exclusive this month!
