I am a little late to the party of celebrating the Fashion For Life Event but my ardor is no less because this is truly one of my favorite things to support in both lives. Everyone’s life has been touched by cancer, some more than others and for all of us it’s a journey.
I thought since lots of people have shared I would tell you the story of my Uncle George, who cancer took away.
He was a confirmed old bachelor (nudge nudge wink wink) who lived his life pretty full as a young man. He went to Cuba to gamble, he worked at 20th Century Fox as a hair dresser during World War 2. When I was very little he was diagnosed with prostate cancer, and told to say his farewells. Continue reading →

Ponies, pigtails and braids, oh my! Hair Fair is rich in tails and braids and there are some really great choices. A few let you customize them with color-change huds or scripts to alter the color of the pony fastener or the streaks in your hair. There are full-size pictures in the Flickr slideshow here. I shot these styles in a gorgeous dress from Vanitas Vesture that has such a great skirt, I decided to make a little video to show you how it moves in the newly released Model XXX AO from Behavior Body.

The Second Life® community never stands still and it never stands by either. There’s always someone with the energy and courage to step up and do something when something needs to be done. So, now we have more than one charitable event going on at the same time. What to do? Why, shop of course. And why not put together an outfit highlighting items from both events just for fun. That’s what I have done here with items from Vanitas Vesture and Kouse’s Sanctum for Fashion For Life and from Peqe for the Pacific Crisis Fundraiser.
Now, while you are admiring the front view of this gorgeous jacket and texturing details in the skirt and top, I want to take a moment to remind you that the donations are from the creators. If you are getting clothing at the market value at a charitable event, you are not donating, you are shopping. I just think it’s useful to remind ourselves of that when we get ideas about how events should do this or that differently. The donation is coming from the participants who have the energy, talent and courage to put themselves out there on behalf of charities. The rest of us, including me, can support their donations by buying stuff, but we are getting our money’s worth.
Since CNN pulled one sentence out of the paragraph above, some people who did not read the post have gotten the impression that I think our participation in charity events does not count. As you can see from what is bolded, that is not true. However, the key ingredient to conflict is isolating an opinion from context to make it more polarizing, which is what happened, unintentionally as it probably is. No fundraising event can happen without the synergy between the people who contribute items to sell and those who buy. Much of the shopping is motivated by the desire to support the effort and to raise funds and people often buy more than they planned. I know I sure do.
You can get nearly every thing I am wearing right now at DISCO DEALS for ridiculous cheap, including this AWESOMESAUCE skin from TULI.
Yeah I said TULI.
99L and zomg. Drool.
I’m so literate today.
If you are a fancy girl like me, one of the unsung joys of Disco Deals this month, in addition to all the great deals on awesome stuffs, is that Ibizarre (maker of the gorgeous little black dress above WHICH YOU NEED) has out a palette of free nail polish.
I love the name of the new blouse from Vanitas Vesture. It sounds like the name of some heroine in a children’s story who does daft things that turn out well. It also sounds like the name of that horror movie actress, but let me assure you, this shirt has nothing of horror about it. It’s made on all layers and sheer, though wearing two layers (as I am) gives you the opacity you want for public events. I am wearing it with the fabulous Anoorea skirt from MichaMi, a lovely high-waisted system skirt.
When SarahtheRed Aubierre asked if any bloggers were interested in promotional copies of her newest dress I jumped at the chance. With typical laziness I have had her shop on my list but have not made it there yet. I expected to like it because the name was so smart – Vanitas Vesture. The use of the latin made me think she would be making clothes with classic shapes – and sure enough that’s exactly what this dress is.
