Fashion For Life closes in just three short hours from now and it is a bittersweet moment for me. I am relieved to have made it to the end without major disasters and dramas. Sure, there were glitches and hiccups and moments of anxiety – par for the course for any event involving more than 200 people. As a species, we come with glitches attached. I am going to miss running the 10 sim circuit from sim to sim to sim to do the daily restarts. I was asked not to restart them all at once, so I figured a run from one end of a sim to the other, following the path, would take me about the right amount of time between each restart. I always did run astray at Perambulate though, tempted off the track by the skate park. Anyway, it has been a wonderful project, raising thousands of dollars for the critical work of the American Cancer Society as it leads global efforts to prevent, treat and cure cancer.
One of the Champions – the large donors whose co-sponsorship of the sims allows all event proceeds to go to Relay For Life – was Mon Cheri of “falsies” fame. Her eyelashes are favorites of people across the grid and even Gidge who has a love-hate relationship with attached lashes likes them. She made several exclusives for Fashion For Life including this adorable summer dress Sachi – which she released in several color combinations.
The dress comes with a belt which fits perfectly, but I left it off in order to wear a long necklace from Maxi Gossamer. I preferred the necklace without the belt for some reason.
She also made these adorable platforms with lace straps and a rosette embellishment. So, my college roommate had shoes so very much like these and I always somewhat envied her. Don’t get me wrong, I loved my stilettos and even wore 3 inch stilettos while on crutches, but I always felt uneasy on high platforms, as though I would fall off them. Since I managed to break my foot three times that year, I felt I had reason for fear. Oddly enough, I was wearing athletic shoes two of those times and kitten heels the third. Obviously, stilettos are much safer! The nail polish, by the way, Sasy said was in my honor – because “I’m a star!” lol, See, I need this big hairstyle for my big head.
Tabata Jewell had some great fun with her new hair release Alala. And I love it! It seems so fitting with the platforms, the summer dress and the jewelry. The skin is a new release as well, from Glam Affair, this is Cassia – an ethereal tender skin with flamboyant and subtle makeup options.
