C88 August-Rainforest Rescue

holiday_004Considering this is a C88 birthday round I had no issue getting into the cam shopping sim at all this morning, which was a bit unexpected.  I also noted a few empty booths which were sad to see, which made me wonder, perhaps the Rainforest theme didn’t work for some creators? Of course, there were the usual contributors who clearly didn’t get the theme memo, I mean, come on,  but that aside this is a great round.  The words that spring to mind are zesty, fruity and lush. If you like green you’re in for a treat, and the splashes of colour make for a really refreshing theme.

Some of the home and garden wares are particularly appealing, I’m loving the rattan furnishings, natural prints on fabrics and back to nature aesthetic that this round generates, which I’m sure will be a real contrast to the Fall vibes we’ll undoubtedly encounter next month! 

There’s a lot to love. I’m planning a dwelling overhaul and I fancy I’ll be splashing out on a lot of the glorious homewares I previously mentioned, but fashion-wise we’re well served. It’s always interesting to see how designers approach a theme.  Of course, there’s the subtle approach, and then there’s Nylon Pinkney.

Thank the Gods and Goddesses on high for Nylon, she always injects zest and colour into C88 and this month is no exception.  I’m absolutely living for this Toucan Halter Dress, and the latest ‘Art Nails’ release: on trend Monstera leaves against a coloured background, wearable art indeed!

To show off my manicure I needed something fancy for my fingers.  Yet again, Yummy Accessories step into the void and prove that when it comes to Bento hand decoration, there’s no one better. This ring set features fabulous parrot and beetle motifs, alongside Monstera leaves that clash with sparkling gems to create a rainforest at your literal fingertips. Like her sister Nylon’s work, Polyester Partridge’s wares are always dripping in ‘zoomability’; there’s nothing more satisfying than zooming in to check out what you’re wearing and finding it’s gloriously sculpted and rendered.  It puts a smile on my kittychops, it really does.

Look at my lovely nails and these rings! Oy, MY HAND IS OVER HERE!

Last but certainly not least I wanted something to serve as a coverall, but it’s not quite jacket weather in-world just yet, not at the sims I’ve been visiting anyway! Tee Fy served up just what I needed; the ‘Winnie’ sweater offers an amazing 35 options featuring plains and prints for all your summer lightweight sweater requirements.  I purchased two (you’ll be seeing the other in tomorrow’s blog post) and was very happy indeed.  I can see me getting a LOT of wear out of this because it will go with everything, jeans, shorts, miniskirts and leggings..the possibilities are endless!

Incidentally, you can choose the ‘Aubree’ ruffled shorts and top to wear with the sweater, these are also available from Tee Fy at the event and offer a more coordinated look.
