Fashion For Life kicked off yesterday and runs until March 20th. One of the over 200 vendors is Mon Chéri formerly known as TGIS (Trashy Girls In Style). One of Mon Chéri’s RFL donation items is the Wrap-around Bikini in wine print. I have this bikini in black print and I never got a chance to wear it. I always look for unique bathing suit and bikini styles and this style fits the bill. You can find Mon Chéri on the Aika sim @ Fashion for Life.

Did you guys know that Fashion For Life starts tomorrow March 10th at noon SLT and runs until March 20th? Be sure to go to the Fashion For Life web page for all the info.

This year there are over 200 stores on a whooping 10 sims. This should reduce lag significantly. There is a hunt, a raffle, and event called 55 for Life being held on 3/16 and like last year there will be gatcha areas.  There will be live entertainment on one of the sims for at least 12 hours each day.  The ladies and gents that organize this event have really gone all out to make this event a succcess. The RFL events are one of few charity events that you can trust in knowing that the money is handled properly.  If you can fill a sim for over 3 days for Slut Couture you can fill these 10 sims up to help fight cancer.

Look for lots of posts from me and my fellow bloggers covering the wonderful fashions avaible at Fashon For Life. You may also see me showing some skin in a vendor ad for an exclusive FFL item. *winky winky*  Celebrate. Remember. Fight Back.

Today is Kesseret Steeplechase’s birthday. She’s 63 years old today, bless her. She’s one foot into the retirement home. Kess is one of my closest friends in SL and I love her to pieces. I hope she has a wonderful Birthday and many many more.

Happy Birthday Kess

Salvatore is a big fan of Lapointe and Bastchild for their mens casual and formal wear. They won me over with their women’s fashion, during Vintage Fair with their aviator jackets. The leather texturing is well done and their items are very very easy to fit. They do use a resize script BUT don’t let that turn you off. Their resize scripts resize on the xyz axis individually. This is one feature that every creator that uses resize scripts should have, along with an option to delete the script and size manually.

For a limited time on the L&B Marketplace Store you can get the DJ Royale set for women or men for L$299. For that price you get, long sleeve leather jacket with the DJ Royale art, chemise (w) or t-shirt (m) and a pair of leather pants. The leather pants cuffs are wide enough to accommodate boots and the cuffs blend almost perfectly into the  pants. I love the small attention to details like that.

To model the leather set we chose the Breakaway Bike from Essential Soul. The Breakaway Bike is purely a pose prop (non rideable) but it comes with:  7 single male poses, 7 single female poses, 8 couple poses, 10 combo female poses, 19 combo guys poses, 8 combo group poses. It is also texture change. There is also a version with a sidecar. If you get a chance, head over to Essential Soul and try out the demo.

March Mess Madness started March 1st. From the moment I TP’d in I was in love. I love the layout and all the vendors are just magnificent, honestly. I have two favorite finds, one I can show and one that didn’t show up so well in the pics.

ColdLogic has been one of my favorite stores since they opened not very long ago. Their designs are a style that you don’t see very much in SL. Every new release I run over and grab the newness.  One of ColdLogics releases for MMM is the Robin combo. Its a tube top and jacket combination. You can wear them together or separate.

A couple of weeks ago Alicia Chenaux did a blog post addressing the trend of wide hipped shapes (referred to herein as ponygirls) that are becoming popular on the feeds. Immediately there was an outcry that the “barbies” were attacking their style. The ponygirls stated they had a right to look different and that they didn’t want to look the same as all the barbies on the feeds. So now we have a divide that is growing larger and hostilities are rising.

Honestly, I am not a fan of the ponygirl look but I have learned to look past the shapes to what is worn and how its styled and accessorized. In that regard I think that both camps can benefit from each other. An item when worn by a different person or used in a different way can become something entirely new.

 recently brought to our attention that someone in our community could use some rays of sunshine during a trying time. Squinternet Larnia of Donna Flora is a talented jewerly and clothing maker. Her styles and designs are unique and I have always admired them.  Even though I may not have blogged her often, it is only because I felt I could not do her designs the justice they rightly deserved.

For this post I decided on the 20′s era dress Joy, with the matching hair to complete the 20′s hollywood star look. You can see all the Donna Flora A to Z posts on Its Only Fashion.

Last night was the wedding. There were some great pics during the ceremony but I’m going to save those for another blog post because Sal and I are still gathering them up. A couple of weeks before the wedding we got together with the wonderful Ms. Strawberry Singh for wedding pics.  She did such a wonderful job. The following pics are Ms. Singh’s amazing photography. I love her so much right now.

Now lets talk about what we wore. My dress is the Laura dress from Son!a. I always wanted a dress that was less princess and more temptress. It had to be sexy without being trashy. Sal’s tuxedo is the Modern Black Ornate Tuxedo from Lapointe and Bastchild with an optional tie addon to match the wedding colors. L&B have some of the best tuxedos on the grid, and they appear to upgrade them to keep up with modern fashion standards, for men at least.

When I first saw the Courage pose from oOo Studio at Back to Black the song that popped into my head was Leap of Faith by Michelle Branch.

Any type of relationship you have, be it in SL or RL, is a leap of faith. After a bit over a year partnered Salvatore and I are taking it a step further and having a wedding tonight. This was a tremendous leap of faith for me, but I have never lacked in courage.
