Tempus fugit, and we are running out of time to go visit Fashion for Life. Tuesday, March 20th is the the last day. Beginning at 8PM SLT, everyone will begin the closing ceremony and party, and the sims will close at midnight! So if there was one more thing that you were deciding on, to-buy-or-not-to-buy-that-is-the-question, you have one more day. What are you waiting for?

Thank you to all the lovely designers and bloggers who have made this fundraising event so darn much fun to participate in. *blows a kiss to Harper*

If you are ready to trade in your fancy ballgown for a walk on the wild side, the Fashion for Life event can set you up for that too. I fell in love with this fabulous jacket and corset, so in true spoiled fashionista way ... I bought both. Don't worry, I had the foresight to pay my rent before I went shopping. :)

Look in my eyes ... do I look like I feel guilty? (You should click to take a close look at these beauties from Ikon! An incredible unconventional color combination.)

The boots come in two different colors of leather, each with a HUD that changes the pattern on the folded cuff. Yes yes, I bought both of those too!

(The jacket and corset are not charity benefit items, but purchasing some for-profit items is what makes it possible for these businesses to donate to charity in the first place. Thank you to all the designers!)

I feel ridiculous calling it a Kimono. It includes two skirts, three different Obi, and two different collars. Oh yes the shoes too. All the sales of this Kimono from Falln Angel benefit Relay for Life. What more excuse do you need to go shopping? :D

The Crie Style monocle. Gorgeous. Millions of teeny tiny elaborate prims that make me zoom in, my mouth hanging open in disbelief. This monocle is not the benefit item, but it's the one I wanted to wear today so deal with it :D ... They do have a golden version of this eyewear "Wise Knights" in the benefit vendor. You need it. Go buy it. You can blame me.

There is such variety available at the Fashion for Life venue that I think everyone can find something they love! Today I am showing a gown from Kouse's Sanctum, which has several charity benefit items, ranging from this traditional ball gown, to other styles which have more of a fantasy or roleplay flavor.

I am still wearing the same skin I wore in the last post, but have added a lipstick option that is available to add to any of the skins in the Hygeia line. The elaborate tattoo from Plastik was a lucky draw from the Plastik gacha. I love how it dresses up the simple outfit with a feeling of Fantasy.

Shoes: Lassitude and Ennui "Boudoir Mules" (texture change)
Necklace: Addiction "Radiance"

Even if you are on a limited budget, you can still support the fundraising efforts at the Fashion for Life benefit. Many designers have provided very reasonably priced accessories for you. For example, Likka House filled a gacha machine full of these adorable little hats.

Or how about this adorable watch chain? There were several different watch faces but this one with the old-fashioned font and flowers made me smile.

These flower child threads from Boho Hobo are so colorful! After the long boring winter I just couldn't resist them. The seams on the corset are sewn a bit crooked, but I figured maybe the designer was hitting the hookah. And I am wearing Renee Harvy's boots, one of each color just to be noncorformist. :D

Once upon a time a cute little fairy sat sadly contemplating the state of her gown. After many repeated patchings and darnings it and the little hose and garters were falling apart. After all they were only woven out of flower petals and spider silks. How much could one ask of such dainty materials?

But when she went to the gossipy spider for more mending silks, she learned that a great fair was opening where the fairy could buy new fancy threads and benefit charity at the same time! Isn't that exciting? On impulse she flew away to find the fair. What will she find?

Fashion for Life opens today! Fly!

I went on the Steam Hunt the other day and I'm still unpacking the prizes, but I thought I would show you one of my favorites so far. The hunt is on the theme of "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea" and Cedar Bay Furnishings has thoughtlfully provided us with a replica of Captain Nemo's Pipe Organ. It is said that Captain Nemo's face sometimes appears in the mirror if you sit and play Bach.

I am wearing a mask and devilish backpack from a gruesome new shop called Contraption. The shop specializes in disturbing and macabre accessories and a bit of clothing too. They have several lucky chairs so you can try out some of their styles.

Sturdy but dashing two-tone boots from Lassitude and Ennui, suitable for a long hike across parallel dimensions ...

And, some macabre jewels I picked up at this month's Flux event. This month their theme is taxidermy *eww* (You can see the details better if you click on the photos and look at the larger versions).

I'll try to show you more from the Steam Hunt in between all the coming coverage for the Fashion for Life Fair! *waves madly*

I bought another chair!

Okay okay, maybe I do have a thing for chairs. Here's my home, you can see some of them. There might be a few more.

But this new chair I am sitting in, I picked it up at Rustica. It is really something special. Gorgeous yes, but more than that! It is mesh with a Prim Equivalent of TWO. That's right just TWO little prims.

... And the Rustica display at the March Mesh Madness fair is displaying more of Maxwell Graf's new must-see mesh items. These days he is making more than the beautiful medieval castles and furnishings he is known best for. He is making forays into mesh fashion, and even weapons. To top himself, he is offering this lovely Statue as a gift. WIN!
