Shopping with a Cause

Fashion for Life -- it isn't "just" shopping.

Running March 12-22 across 9 sims, this year’s theme will be “Beyond Black and White,” embodying the spirit of cancer survivors everywhere as they find hope rising out of the dark diagnosis of cancer. Spread over the sims will be over 180 stores with a hunt and gatcha areas, all with the goal of raising funds for the American Cancer Society. Fashion for Life will feature the best designers from around the globe.

With so many great items to choose from, it will be difficult to decide on your favorites. Shown here is a beautifully rendered, casual set from HARDWEAR ( Helmut Newton (77, 91, 24) at FFL).  When I opened the notecard I was almost ready to get into "Chav" mode -- something I haven't done in months. The outfits on the male model looked so -- well "SO" *wink*. Happily on opening a box I found that unisex (read for the gals) items were also included. The menswear items come with wrinkles in all the right places, an optional prim "pouch" and highlights to accent the masculine physique. Both sets have wonderfully shaped dips to the jeans. If only RL jeans could fit like this! There are several patterns to choose from with two shown here.

The medallions we are wearing are from the gotcha machines (a new addition to this year's event) at HARDWEAR. Six colors of retro charms with animated textures, the Blow Your Mind  necklaces resize easily for the gals.

Some of my outfit choices are to remind you that you CAN look good and still be low stress on the server. My attire includes ONE script (the purse hold in the super cute media bag sent with our press kits). Thank you Syngen Sohmers. Not only is it darling, it is grayscale and tintable -- a fashion bloggers fondest wish.  I added a little extra darkness to blend with my outfit.  So remember to descript your boots (a copy of course) or wear old shoes. Barefoot works too. And hair? Hairbases are your friend as well as turbans. Stay in the green ARC settings and descript and your shopping time will be more pleasant!
