Not a long post from me today, going to leave most of it to the discussion about the items below as this is a pretty C88 packed post! But, I was thinking a bit earlier this week about song lyrics and how often just one line of a song can stand out and create a reaction in your brain. The song that sparked this thought was Wichita Lineman. The radio station I listen to in the car played the Sergio Mendes and Brasil 66 version and I was struck, as I always am, by the lyric:
And I need you more than you want you…and I want you for all time
That lyric always touches me and makes me think about the difference between love, need and want and which is most important to me.
About the Stuff:
I doubt I need to tell you that C88 is open right? If you’re anything like me you have spent the last few days in silence desperately trying to tp to the sims to grab your share of the goodies. Exile has two hairs available at the event, Liaison and Dangerous (worn above). I was delighted to see a new updo from Exile but also one that is a different from the regular bun style updo. It’s got a very regal look to it but not so much that’s it’s not completely wearable day-to-day.
fri.day is another regular at C88 and they have a classy pair of shoes, with beautiful lace socks. I’m wearing them without the socks but will be blogging them with the socks too in the next few days,. They come in both Slink and Maitreya options with three colours for the socks and fri.day has added some different colours to the regular colour palette for this birthday round.
The total joy of the birthday round is that C88 invites back all the guest designers from the previous year and that meant Fancy Decor would again be at the event. A couple of months ago Fancy Decor released some wall panels at another event and this time around there is a new version of the wall panels in two sizes with a beautiful damask texture. The walls come with a colour change hud with 8 different options. Also available are the chairs in gold or white and the bookcase too.
