I was thrilled to be able to pair the mesh pants from MiaMai with the mesh tank from JANE. Finding pieces that work together, particularly from different stores, is often a chore. One of the great things about the top from Jane is that it offered a regular and wide hem. With the regular hem, the pants bled through in the back, but with the wide hem, the top stayed on the outside like it was supposed to. This gave me all the pleasure in having mesh that moved and looked good from all angles. The print pants from MiaMai are so rich and elegant – and your purchase supports the work of Medecins Sans Frontieres/Doctors Without Borders (MSF).
One of the countries where they are working is Chad where lack of rain has led to poor harvests and famine. Food prices are 25% higher than last year. There’s also a water shortage and people wait as much as seven hours to get water. Imagine trying to get your ordinary tasks done if you had to wait seven hours just to get water. Of course, hunger begets disease because we need food to fight infection and so now measles and meningitis have broken out.
MSF is hoping to vaccinate 640,000 people there. According to the World Health Organization, a meningitis vaccine costs aid organizations $0.50. So while you think your purchases are too small to matter, consider that around 130 lindens spent at Culture Shock will buy one vaccine – a vaccine that protects for ten years. So when you are spending your lindens, instead of counting how much you spend, count how many vaccines you buy.
I just had to add these fabulous red pumps from Baiastice – the Etienne pumps. She also has some great pumps at Culture Shock called Santigold. The orange and Baudelaire pattern pumps are on sale for MSF. Besides, they are gorgeous!
WTG Jewelry has a magnificent set of jewelry, including bracelets, earrings and necklace. The set is called Dignity – something that MSF treats its patients with in all parts of the world.
Glam Affair has a special set of special makeups and tones for the recent Giselle skin release that are released to raise funds at Culture Shock. This is one of them. The hair is from Dura, though as always with Dura hair, I have tinted it to add some red.
