Screwy

Well SL is still hating me at the moment, I will resist moaning too much but it was a surprise when I managed to stay in world to be able to grab some shots of these goodies.

IntrepidNot only new shoes but new Donna Flora shoes.  Because I’ve not been able to keep upto date with how the big Donna Flora even that has has been going I decided to blog about these shoes which came from Donna Floras own shop and are a prim example of her craft.  A soft silver  satin sheen, very retro with an easy to use hud.  Can be worn without the bows as well.

RaptureThe soft feminine look is hardened by those wicked spiked heels.

FurI even managed to have time to pop this tippet on.  A fur collar with strands of pearls draped down.  The one shown in the shop is worn over a jacket and looks great.  A handy accessory to tart up a favourite outfit.  This comes from Coco which I know for a fact has some excellent free to join Group Gifts (I have them) and I managed to meander around all the lovely new stuff and checked out the massive discount section before SL kicked me out again.  As soon as I can get back I’m picking up a delightful cropped jumper with a lace collar and  a good look at the new stock.

WOAH!

I’ve just received the list of the shops and designers who are participating in the Donna Flora fund raising  and the list is VAST!  I think it is probably the longest list of any event I have ever seen in all my years in SL. Kudos to those who must have spent an enormous time organizing all of this because the list alone had my head reeling let alone trying to organise it.  It’s a reflection of how much people hold Squinternet Larnia in their esteem that so many have been so generous in their offerings.

So basically, as far as I know because it hasn’t officially started, shops/designers have placed items out with a certain percentage going towards helping Squinternet Larnia and in some cases all the funds will be donated .  I will put the link to Squinternet’s story so you can see why so many people are feeling for her.

ColourtwoLooking for romance then try Romance Couture a shop packed with froth and froo froo.  Big ball gowns with flowing skirts.  Old fashioned glamour.  3 floors of dresses, shoes and jewels for you to recreate a glamorous look.  Mainly non mesh as you cannot get the liquid look with mesh yet but she does have a small selection of mesh clothes and even a rather good freebie which you can grab at the LM.  The event isn’t open officially till the 25th and so this is just a preview but as soon as it’s open I’ll pop on a reminder.

Squinternet Larnia

HatSome people manage to pick the best AV names and Squinternet Larnia is one of them but she maybe better know for her shop Donna Flora. If you don’t know that name you’d better get used to it because there is a big push of Slers and others promoting her shop to raise funds for Squinternet.  The reason being is that behind our perfect AVs are equally beautiful but flawed real humans and sometimes life bites you on the butt.  Sadly Squinternet is not well and although we cannot be there as a shoulder to cry on, a helping hand in the home, a picker up of shopping and a bit of a laugh to take her mind off life’s troubles we can however indulge in a bit of retail therapy and in return Squinternet gets a little bit of extra money to go towards helping making life a little bit nicer.  This ISN’T a charity call or even worse a pity call because Squinernet has something a lot of us can never offer and that’s a shop of amazing designs, old, new, retro, funky, out there, basics, period pieces, hats, gems & Jewels and don’t get me started on the shoes!

Hat1So far all I have bought is this hat and that’s only because I just cannot make up my mind on what else to get every time wander around her large beautiful shop I mentally tag everything I want.  Not the cheapest of clothes but honestly you’re not paying for a bog standard repackaged mundane stuff.  Each outfit is well crafted beautifully textured, unique and so feminine.

OH! so I went back to do this write up and grab the LMs and finally chose some other lovelies to treat myself to and this hat has a matching outfit to go with it.  I somehow resisted this but did treat myself to some ribboned shoes and a framed corset dress so watch out for those in my next blogg.

Don’t be put off my the cost! You pay for quality for sure but click around and she does have items from as little as 60Lds and just outside the front door through the gates are the dollarbies and old gifties.
