Shine

Tonight at 7pm, slt, and tomorrow at 12 noon slt a fashion show and silent auction to benefit "Medecins Sans Frontiers" or as I know it in English "Doctors Without Borders" will be held.

If you know nothing about this extremely worthwhile charity, I direct you to their website located here. In short, this is a ...secular humanitarian-aid non-governmental organization best known for its projects in war-torn regions and developing countries facing endemic disease ... Quote excerpted from the Wikipedia site on the organization.

At the show you will see limited edition items from many wonderful designers sold only to benefit MSF and you will be able to bid in a silent auction on one of a kind items as well. I don't know what the current list of auction items is but I know that one of them is a pair of those new wonderful boots from Tesla in an unreleased color that will be available nowhere else.

Please join us for Shine!

Quick Changes - Dark Fashionista!

When I saw this amazing and out of the ordinary hair, I had to put together an outfit that would do justice to it. I really have no words to describe it and will have to let the pictures speak for themselves. As a note, I did have to edit a few of the prims because in taking pictures I would get that close up fine, pull back holes thing which I blame on SL and not Digit's gorgeous work.

I put together an outfit that I think really wows and stands up to the glittery jaw-drop factor of the hair.



Bigger .......... Biggest

I knew immediately I wanted to wear the beautifully textured Isabeaux leather pants from LF Fashions. I have quite a few pairs of leather pants in my inventory and these have quickly become a favorite. I hesitated for a while before buying them but now I have them almost in every color she makes and I'd love to see a deep green, blue etc. in the same pant. I'm wearing the "For Heels' version of the prim legs, there are three choices and this pant comes on the underwear layer also.

Next, I wanted to wear a corset with this and after trying several different ones I own, I settled on the corset from the Milena outfit from Last Call. The corset is also beautifully textured, and is very realistic looking, plus I liked the way the bodice is shaped as well as the way the back looks. The whole outfit is wonderful by the way, not just the corset.

I wanted a really unique looking skin for this outfit and that's why I'm wearing the Biba 3 skin from Tete A Pied in Buff. I loved the plum lips and eyes and the dramatic look to the make up which only played up the other parts of the ensemble.



Bigger .......... Biggest

To give this outfit a bit more visual interest, I added an undershirt and underpants from the Lilith Mega set in Midnight from Dark Eden. This filled in the little bit of skin between corset and pants and gave the look of straps over my arms, shoulders and torso. I liked this slightly fetishy addition against the skin I decided to wear. I also am wearing the belt from this same set.

My jewelry is the Dauphine set from Muse. The Silver/Jet version shown here was a group gift and is no longer available as far as I am aware. I wanted something complicated and glittery to match the overall ensemble.



Bigger .......... Biggest

I stepped into a pair of Serpenti pumps from Adam n Eve in the Diablo color with the beautiful texture and little buckle on the toe. The very high heel and strict sort of look on these shoes was just the finishing touch I needed.

I took a lot of photographs to try to show the truly wonderful textures involved in this outfit but don't take my word for it, go and see for yourself.
