There are probably as many reasons for why we give as there are designers at Fashion For Life. Many give because it gives them a sense of worth and satisfaction to help others. Some give specifically to efforts that help fulfill their lives goals and passions. Others want to make a difference in the world, to know their life had meaning in the broader world outside their friends and family. Many give to advance their cultural and political values. Others give to be part of a community and to join with others who share their interests. Others because they feel a sense of responsibility to their community. Some give because they wish to lead. Others give to say thank you. Many give to memorialize and honor loved ones. Whatever their motivation, I am grateful that so many are motivated to spend hours creating beautiful designs to offer as gifts to support cancer research. When you go to the Fashion For Life event, look for the Fashion For Life vendors. 100% of the purchase price goes to the American Cancer Society. At Fashion For Life, you could be motivated to give for a multitude of reasons, but looking at dresses like this one from Nicky Ree, I think we need to add “looking good” to the list of motivations.
The dress is Tanya from Designing Nicky Ree. While it has a very traditional design, it also has an up to the minute modern fabric that makes it pop. I am wearing the fuller skirt prim, but I could also have worn a mermaid version that hugs the hips before flairing at the knees. I added Lotus pumps from Baiastice and toddled off to A Little Further Than Before – a fairly new build from AM Radio that is an ideal environment for playing with windlight settings.
