Im so excited…its time for Fashion For Life ! In its sixth year raising money for the American Cancer Society. Sooo many designers, new & old…all with exclusive items for the event..gatcha machines..a hunt..a raffle…and so much more ! Im kicking off my FFL blog with one of my favourite suits…its called “mimi” and is by SF Designs..(thank you Swaffette xx) I already have a different colour of this in my wardrobe..but this is a special exclusive colour just for FFL ! Duck egg blue..scrummy shade..
In the box you get two versions, plus the most darling little matching clutch bag & shoes. If you dont pick this up at the FFL event..you wont be able to buy it later !
Next I have a gatcha dress..just 50L a pop, and its mesh ! Its by Silken Moon..and has some lovely detailing on it..easy to wear. Ive teamed it up with a necklace form Caroline’s Jewelry..and I SO love this ! Sweet key with a teeny clock set into it…tying in nicely with this years FFL theme “its time”..available with black or white pearls..havent taken this off yet ! Im also wearing a skin from one of the specially created “Hygeia” line by MyDear..a donation item..tres chic..totally lovely…get buying ! (loads of skin tones and makeups)
Last for today..but not my last blog for this event is from SF Designs…if youre into gowns or Tuxedo’s…this is what you need. The Speranza gown for us ladies and the co-ordinating Speranza Tux for the Men. Such a wealth of detailing its hard to know where to start..but if you think of SF Design as the “Rolls Royce” of this type of attire..you wont be far wrong. The gown has full and slim skirt versions..a prim bodice that makes it sooo much more three dimensional..the fabric looks heavy and lush..and moves so gracefully its hard not to keep twirrrrling around ! Also in the box is a stunning pair of shoes to wear with it. If youre liking my skin, its also availble at the FFL event, by Hush and called “Amy”, Im still wearing this two days later..its totally adorbs. I chose sultry sage in the honey tone…more shades on display !
Im not big on describing menswear..but Steve looks super handsome in this tuxedo..no? Im big on cuff and cufflinks..such a lovely touch…also has shoes with it..so no worries about searching out a pair ! Thanks Swaffette x

So what’s New for 2012?
This year, Fashion for Life spans an incredible TEN lag free sims with over 200 stores selling the latest fashions, accessories, hair and unique designer items made especially for this event. There will also be gacha areas, a hunt, a raffle and a SALE- all with the end goal of raising funds for the American Cancer Society via SL.
The sims will be laid out in a cross formation and will represent the theme “Its Time…” with builds representing stages in time: past, present, future and timeless. All building and landscaping have been created by some of SL’s top designers and builders to produce a beautiful environment for your charity shopping sprees!
Alongside the fabulous fashion, there will be a sim dedicated to providing a minimum of 12 hours entertainment and activities every day, so you can socialise, have fun and meet new people too.
Our sims have been kindly sponsored by ‘Dream Seeker Estate Corporation’ which has drastically reduced admin expenses, helping to free up even more money for Relay for Life.
Harper Beresford, Fashion for Life Lead executive says:
“Fashion for Life is not just about fashion and it’s not just about fund raising-it’s about supporting the members of our community in SL who have been touched by cancer.”
Cancer touches everyone. We sincerely hope you join us in this kick-off event for Relay for Life in SL, helping raise money for the American Cancer Society.
