I love the fab retro print in this great dress from Chantkare for Culture Shock. It makes me think of the fun prints that were such a hallmark of the late 60s and the 70s. It’s a dress that could be worn by characters in this season of Mad Men. I shot the dress at a brand new sim. How new you ask? It opened on Friday!
It’s called Neva River and I predict you will be seeing many photos shot there as there are many charming set pieces that are perfect for taking pictures.
I added the fun new pumps from Baiastice. The red ones are a donation item at Culture Shock as well. Speaking of Culture Shock, did you know that Médecins Sans Frontières MSF (Doctors Without Borders) also has programs in France? There they work to help asylum seekers, many of whom have been traumatized by civil war or persecution and who need medical and psychological help as they seek to find their ground. People with irregular status have difficulty accessing health care and MSF steps up to help.
Frankly, denying health care to people with irregular status whether undocumented immigrants or asylum seekers who have not yet been granted asylum is bad for all of us. Left untreated, illnesses like flu, hepatitis and tuberculosis can spread from person to person quickly and an illness that begins in an immigrant community and is allowed to flourish without treatment is not going to care about anyone’s national status when jumping from host to host. With infectious diseases, it’s a short-sighted policy to deny access to health care to anyone, but those policies are politically popular even if they are foolhardy. In France, MSF steps into the breach.
I wore Giselle, the new skin from Glam Affair and a short cut from Dura along with jewelry from Mandala that could have been made to order for this dress. The Omochi necklace and earrings are magnificent. I wanted to fat pack them so much, but I am saving my pennies for Culture Shock.
