Time for Fashion

Hello Second Life this is Kaiden writing! *waves* Aya is letting me write her post today so yay!

After much begging and prodding I tped her into the Fashion For Life event to go shopping with me. (A free outfit helps when all other tactics fail.) I was so surprised by the almost non-existent lag I almost fell right off my chair! The sims are so interesting though and I loved being able to shop without constantly crashing.

Back to Aya and FFL though. We made our way across the event’s multiple sims, stopping first at shops we both know and love and then moving on to personal favorites as well as the lesser known shops. We put our shopping focus on the donation/FFL-exclusive vendors at each spot as we teleported around the event looking for the best deals. I also bought a few non-donation items that were just too cute to pass up.

Almost two hours and several hundred possibly even several thousand L$ later we ended up back at my home. It didn’t matter how tired we were or that I had a camming-induced headache forming, the two of us sat and unpacked all our purchases and had our own mini fashion show. Before I knew it we were taking pictures and giggling madly over skype.

Pictured below is the lovely and fabulous Ayako showing off her favorite purchases. Doesn’t she look great?

I had so much shopping with my dear friend. But in all seriousness while Fashion For Life is a great shopping event, more importantly it’s a great fundraiser. If for some reason you’ve been living under a rock or you’re new to SL and don’t know about FFL, it’s part of SL’s Relay for Life raising money for the American Cancer Society.

I’m definitely for raising money for a good cause but most especially when it comes to cancer. I know my family has been touched by cancer and felt the effects although not me directly – two of my relatives died of cancer before I was born. But I’ve seen co-workers fight breast and skin cancer and it really opens your eyes up to the reality of this disease. Not only the toll it takes on the patient but family and finances too. Even though it seems that cancer survival rates are going up,  I say the more money toward cancer research the better!!! Go hit up FFL and shop for a good cause. The event runs through next Tuesday, March 20. For more information about FFL check out their website or you can learn more about how to help the ACS take a peek here:

Since the theme for FFL this year is “It’s Time…” this video seemed fitting

52 Weeks of Color Challenge – White

This has been by far one of the most difficult weeks for me not because of the color – I have so much white in my closet it’s insane – but because of 1. my “no dresses” rule for this week, and 2. because I pulled my husband into doing it with me.

I spent some time this week reflecting on my blog and the challenge. I noticed how many dresses I blog –  which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. SL has brought out my feminine side because I really love wearing dresses. However, part of my decision to blog was so that I could kinda be pushed outside my comfort zone fashion wise. The point was to start trying both new styles and new designers  to stretch myself a bit and I’ve been rather lazy with that. Doing this color challenge has sent me places I wouldn’t necessarily have thought to shop before unless someone else directed me there. I love that I’ve discovered new designers and have added several landmarks to my favorites folder. On the converse of that 90% of my blog posts involve at least 1 dress if not more. So here I am pushing myself out of my usual fashion and into something different.

Trying to get my husband Therathe to participate was another challenge. The actual convincing of him didn’t take much effort. A bit of eyelash batting and booty shaking and he was on board. The difficulty was the hour and a half spent shopping trying to find just the right white outfit for him which ended up being just a white polo from Alphamale. Apparently, he really doesn’t “do” white, especially not white pants.  I suppose if I had tried a bit harder I could have persuaded him into white shoes as well but I was too tired. Oh well. I still love him even though he wouldn’t put on white pants for me.

Not looking forward to next week. Banana Mania? Really? I didn’t even know that was color! In fact, I’m not even sure what color it is based off the strip but I’m assuming it’s some type of yellow????? Banana = yellow, sort of makes sense. But what’s a challenge without unusual unknown colors.
