Fashion for Life

Now through March 20th is Fashion for Life and the never ending fight against cancer.

This event has become a mainstay of the fashion community and it is exciting to see this tradition continue with a special 10th anniversary event. Fashion For Life will open its doors on March 6th 2016 and will run for 14 days, closing at 6pm SLT on March 20th.

The Fashion For Life event began as a dream 10 years ago with 34 designers participating all with a special reason to fundraise for Relay For Life. Since that date, it has grown to over 180 Designers covering 10 sims and has raised close to 20 million Linden Dollars for Relay For Life and the American Cancer Society .

First, I’d like to introduce the outfit designed by LUXE Paris.  This top, pants and booties outfit called Bord De Mer is comfy chic casual.

Second we have the Classy Jumpsuit also from LUXE Paris.  Notice the luxurious textures that pair so well with jewelry from Chop Zuey’s The Fair Olivia set.

Swinging Into Sleep

Snapshot_584Snapshot_585


Shhhh I’m trying to nap.

MuddPuddles has another amazing product for you! The Infant Swing is perfect for us littles. The swing includes 6 pretty lullaby’s, 8 animations, & even rocks when clicked. Like most MuddPuddles products it also has a texture change menu option. If you happen to use the Xeolife hud you will get plenty of use out of this item as it comes with a compatible version.

No nap is achievable without comfy clothes. My comfy & totally cute leggings are by LaZo. The new Lace Short Legging Appliers come in a fatpack with many color options. I picked out Creme for my look today.

A ‘Peep’ of love

The luck of the Irish ends today so move on over you little leprechaun and let the bunnies take over.  It’s time to get the eggs out, the dies going, the chocolate melted, the bunnies laying those eggs… wait a bunny laying an egg… whatever.  I love some me a bunny. They are warm cute and furry and even more lovable with chocolate.

Anyways, this bunny is checking out some Peeps on my shirt. No, not like people peeps or even the little chicks that go peep.  It’s those awesome marsh-mellow things you either love or hate. Now they come in many colors.. They used to be only yellow.

So go ahead and show your peep pride. I have mine. This shirt is from Sweet & Sassy. Comes in TD Baby and Kid. Either black or pink.

Peeps

The bunny love pose is by p.o.s.e and come with the bunny and two adjustable pose balls so it fits avatars of different heights. To show this I have a TD baby (left) and a TD kid (right). Yup just stuck up my left hand in and L to make sure I had that correct. lol. It’s okay.

Paradise Dawning

When the virtual world first beckoned me to begin my Second Life anew last year, I found early on that I was really fascinated with shopping on the SL Marketplace. It felt like an interactive catalog, with a variety of search and sort options, and I really liked that I could load up my cart, chill in a sandbox, and have a lovely bunch of parcels delivered right to me, ready for my unboxing pleasure.

These days, I do still find myself shopping the Marketplace on occasion; I particularly love it for purchasing gacha items, which is largely how I found makeup appliers for my beloved Genesis Lab mesh head. But last year, my friend Kess Crystal inspired me with her wonderful Mainstore Monday series, which found her sharing finds from designers’ mainstore locations, which she hoped would inspire others to broaden their horizons, rather than exclusively exploring the vast array of shopping events.

I loved this concept, but sadly failed to do it proper justice before going on hiatus. So this time around, I decided to make it a point to visit mainstores as often as events, because if I loved something a designer created for Collabor88, Uber, or similar, I was sure to be dazzled by items from their older, non-“event exclusive” collections as well. And I’ve been enjoying it immensely! I’ll never bid farewell to my love for shopping the events; it’s one of my great pleasures in Second Life, and I just eased back into maintaining my SL Fashion & Shopping Events Tracker to boot. But mainstore visits will definitely become a deeper part of my style-creating groove and technique!

However, it’s a bit funny that I wrote all of that to accompany a picture that largely does not contain mainstore releases. Silly Ever! But my look does contain two items that came right from the Marketplace, so it all makes sense in a roundabout way. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it! ♡

Fear...Featuring Fashion For Life with [AtTire]


Our Deepest Fear

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
by Marianne Williamson

  The Fashion For Life committee is proud to announce the dates for Second Life's 10th Annual Clothing Fair benefiting Relay For Life of Second Life. This event has become a mainstay of the fashion community and  we are excited to continue the tradition with a special 10th anniversary event. The event will open its doors on March 6th 2016 and run for 14 days, closing at 6pm SLT on March 20th.

This event began as a dream 10 years ago with 34 designers participating all with a special reason to fund raise for Relay For Life. Since that date, it has grown to over 180 Designers covering 10 sims and has raised close to 20 million Linden Dollars for Relay For Life and the American Cancer Society .  To celebrate this Special Event and Milestone, Amethyst Starostin and Nevar Lobo, the founders of the Clothing Fair in 2006, have returned to plan this amazing event.

This year is going to be a trip back in time and Celebrate the history of the Clothing Fair (Fashion for Life). Prepare to be immersed in 10 of the greatest sims built by some of Second Life's most talented builders. What is the Theme you ask ? Well its :  " THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT"

We are looking forward to presenting 14 days of shopping from some of the most dedicated designers here in Second Life.  Each one is committed to raising as much money for Relay for Life of Second Life and the American Cancer Society as possible.

This year we are again inviting the Live Musicians and DJ's of Second Life to join us. T1 Radio will be covering 24/ 7 through out the fair , fund raising and letting us all know just what can be found through out the 10 sims. 

But that is not all:

With over 150 designers, we will also offer One of A Kind Auctions, Fashion Shows, Treasure Hunt, and a Photo Contest. Also, the fabulous Elysium Cabaret Dance troupe will be there to perform not one but two shows during the event.

Second Life Fashion from ReadMeri | Giraffe

Giraffe

It’s wild on the plains today, a mist pervades and heightens my senses and I look around for a source of perceived danger. But there is nothing I can see. No need to run – yet.

Good morning Tuesday people. I hope you’ve had a fabulous start to your day. Here, it is sunny and a tiny bit cold, but I’m completely ignoring the chilly bit and running with the Springtime bit. Thom’s got a bad head – has had ever since he got back from France. I’m trying to be gentle and calm around him, more like a giraffe than a monkey at least. He doesn’t seem to mind me eating leaves while I gaze at him reflectively.

What to wear in Second Life today?

Visit | The Hell’s Haven
Pose | [E3D] diorama – Reach a little further (E3D Mainstore)
Hair | Little Bones – Kyoto (Little Bones Mainstore)
Earrings | RealEvil Neda Earrings (RealEvil Mainstore : RealEvil Marketplace)
Shoes | Livalle Europa Slingback Platform Wedges Sunset (Livalle Mainstore)
Dress | Addams Vera Tight Holes Dress [Mait/3Bell/2sli/5ss] (Uber)

About:

If you want to show off your slink, you should definitely invest in one of these dresses from Addams – the new Vera – available at Uber right now. It comes with all the mesh body sizes and 5 standard sizes and an array of plain colours and some textures too. I went for the giraffe because it seemed so much sweeter than a tiger or a leopard, but you can roar with the best if you want to! The fit is awesome, as usual.

You might not be able to see the full glory of the RealEvil Neda earrings in these shots, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t an essential in this (and so many) outfits. You can see them originally blogged here.

Here’s a well lit no shit shot, you can click to see me huge.

And finally, a giraffe dancing, for your entertainment…

Post #487


Annie Melson of Just Because has outdone herself with this absolutely stunning gown for FaMESHed.   Coming in a vast array of gorgeous colours (I have shown just a few of them), it fits like a glove on my Maitreya Lara and is a joy to wear.  It is also compatible with all the other major mesh bodies.

Post #487


My armband is the Just Because gift for this month's FaMESHed anniversary round, and comes with a hud to change metals.

Post #487


The back of the gown is absolutely beautiful too as can be seen in the picture below.  I have no idea how Annie manages to make her mesh so absolutely perfect, but I am glad she does!

If an item is for sale at an event, I give the slurl to that event.  However in case this blog post is read after the event has finished, I also include the slurl to the mainstore.  

All Slurls are current at time of posting.  If you are unable to find an item, or need help with anything I have blogged, feel free to send me an email, inworld IM or nc, or a plurk (all links on contacts page).

I wear a mesh body, head, hands & feet in all posts. I use alpha cuts where necessary, and if I can't get an item to work with my mesh body, I wwill neither wear it or blog it  Most items I blog fit various mesh body parts, and often classic avatar standing sizing and/or fitmesh. Please make sure to demo anything you see here that you are thinking of buying to be sure it works for you.
