Blogging the Fashion for Life fundraiser fashions is particularly important to me. About five years ago, a doctor removed a layer of cancerous cells from my cervix. It was skeery. In fact, that whole terrifying "is this really happening to me and why??" experience reduced me to a whimpering "I want my mommy" mess for a while.
It was a frightening wakeup call, and I'm blessed that we caught it before it progressed any further. Many people aren't as fortunate, however, and I feel like my little brush with The Big C is nothing compared to the valiant battles so many cancer patients fight every day.
So let's buy some clothes and raise some money, shall we? Almost everything blogged during the next few posts is an FFL donation vendor item. A portion of the proceeds (varies per designer) goes to the American Cancer Society. (See my previous post for details.)
Nene dress, 300L (UPDATE: It's "Nene," not "Nine," which would have been kind of awesome, actually. Blame the Ambien for that typo, please. Thanks!)
Why hello, Mashooka! I've missed you!
I love this color combination. It's like someone wrapped me up in a gorgeous sunset. If the black lace on the chest bothers you, never fear: It's an optional undershirt layer. You can skip it and highlight your decolletage with striking jewelry instead. But keep it simple, kids! You don't want to detract from the gloriousness of the dress. It looks beautiful in motion.
I planned to include a photo of the bare-necked look RIGHT HERE as a matter of fact, but I'm crashing on an average of once every seven minutes in SL these days. I'm not exaggerating.
So we'll have to settle for this one:
The Aesha earrings in gold are part of the fatpack that is Aleida's very generous FFL Hunt Prize. You're looking for little Fashion For Life boxes. If you find Likka House, please let me know. In fact, I need to say it again:
IF YOU FIND THE LIKKA HOUSE HUNT GIFT, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.
I'm wearing A:S:S' new Tears in Your Eyes eyes in Amber. They include the tear tattoo, shown on my face, and tear-effect prims. A single pair is 50L; the fatpack of 12 colors is 500L. I really love them. (They're a review item and available in store, not at FFL)
That Siren hair from Shag (shown in Toffee) is so damn FABULOUS I can hardly stand it. It's currently at the Chic Limited event, 225L for a pack of six shades.
Now let's talk about shoes.
Last month, a girl in a group chat asked if anyone knew where she could get some "free or really cheap" cool shoes.
I said, "Duh!"
She said, "OMG YOU'RE SUCH A BITCH EXCUSE ME FOR BEING NEW HERE YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW ME."
Oops! To this day, I die laughing whenever I think of that little misunderstanding. I gasped and laughed so hard I cried when it happened. Don't yell at me in run-on sentences in all-caps because it's only gonna make me laugh. You'd do better with sharp, cutting sentences with several syllables and perfect punctuation and grammar. THAT would cut me to the core.
Those Silk Floral Booties in Rose are 40L and, along with the same booties in silver, are Duh!'s FFL vendor donation items. Creator Renee Harvy has several other adorable items in her booth. If I can ever log on long enough to move two steps, I'll probably color some more of them.
And now if you'll excuse me, I need to uninstall and reinstall SL on my computer, so I can stay inworld for longer than four minutes at a time.
