(Under)statement

kyoot2 It’s sad to see Kyoot go. Saeya Nanda participated in Fifty Linden Friday and in Collabor88, so I have been able to collect quite a few of her pieces. When I think of Kyoot, I think of cleavage. I’m not kidding. Ms. Nanda shows off an av’s assets in a way that is softly sexy rather than flashy. For today’s post, I accessorized one of Kyoot’s understated Whitehaven dress with a new statement necklace from Zibska. It’s an array of slim bamboo branches, appearing substantial from afar and delicate up close. The different textures combine closely related colours: if you blow up this pic you will see that the coffee texture juxtaposes brown with green. The other texture options include black, green and indigo. The necklace is also resizable.

I couldn’t find New Mexico on the grid, so I decided the wild west would have to work with the irresistible palette and creations of the Santa Fe collection at Collabor88. Last month, it seemed to me that too many items were priced at 188L and higher. This month felt more like the orgies I remember from the past because the loveliest items are priced at 88L. A girl can take home a handful of the fab furs from (fd) and a big bag of bodysuits from The Sea Hole without going broke.


Allegory Malaprop of Schadenfreude is fast becoming my fave footwear designer. This month, the lucky Collabor88 shopper—female or male—can take home the multi-part colour-change version of the new Amargosa boot for only 488L.
