Love for Donna Flora – GizzA for Squinternet Larnia

Today I would like to show you another contribution for the great Love for Donna Flora event (http://lovedonnaflora.wordpress.com/2013/07/02/so-cancer-happened/)

For the first picture, the credits go out to Falbala Fairey. She asked if I would have blogged the “Yeriak” gown already, the one Giz Seorn, owner and designer of GizzA, made for he Love for Donna Flora event. She wanted to do a special picture together with another new release from GizzA, in a way of good versus evil. As usual I get asked to do the evil part I was wondering, why she asked me for the “Yeriak” gown…  as I arrived I saw Falli in the new “Thorn Dress” and I did understand… Today she gets to be the evil and me the good one! I would like to thank Falli for that amazing picture. She even did some wonderful closeups, that you can see together with her stylecard on her blog (http://falbalafaireyfashionblog.wordpress.com/2013/08/01/in-darkness-shines-the-light/)

Gizza - Yeriak for Donna Flora 001.

Let’s take a closer look on the “Yeriak” dress. The amazing corset shows, how much love for the detail Giz puts into her designs. The filigree and delicate lace that covers the waist and the wonderful opaque colored texture, that is placed on the chest make a perfect combination for this playful, vintage touched outfit. The gloves bring back the theme of the corset and the huge headpiece with the awesome sheer and flexible parts that are repeated in the skirt as well. The huge flowers that decorate the waist and as well the hat add a huge ‘eye catcher factor’ and together with the stockings and the garters it makes a perfect vintage touched outfit. The whole ensemble is a perfect contribution to the Love for Donna Flora event as it kinda is a tribute as well to Squinternet Larnia, the queen of the vintage look 😉

Mila Tatham, owner and designer of SoliDea FoliEs, contributed 2 amazing creations. One of them is the “Dotty” dress. A wonderful short white dress with huge black spots. The delicate laced top, together with the amazing collar and writs parts call for a cute, nice and all sweet styling usually. So I wanted to give it some twist and as I showed it to Malicia, all she had to say was like “…you look like a crazy, freaky stewardess”.. thank you Mal.. so much to that :p .

I added one of the amazing hats of Donna Flora called “Blackpool” and some hair from Amacchi that they gave away at the hair fair as a gift 😉

Solidea - Hope for Donna Flora shoes

The shoes I used for this post, are one of the amazing creations that Energie showcases on the actual Shoe Fair 2013. The “Flirtiny” heels really caught my attention as they were something new to me. First of all I saw they come with 2 different HUDS. One for socks and skin options and one for the nails and all the amazing spikes. What was special to me, was the idea of not having regula stockings that do not show the toes. I liked how the stockings have open spots at the feet and with the HUD you can choose from different ornaments for the stockings, different colors of the stockings and even a ripped option. All the different stockings that you can choose for the feet , are delivered as well in a special stocking bag, wich comes with the shoes. The extreme high heels can be decorated with 3 different colors via the HUD – Gold, Silver nd black. If you wanna see more of the amazing ne creations of Energie hurry to the Shoe Fair 2013 and see what  else they have new!

Brave Woman – A Tribute to Donna Flora

Love for Donna Flora full

Some brave women, not the famous ones, fought for the right to vote early in the last century, they were called Suffragettes in a pejorative manner. They went on hunger strikes, were forcibly fed, went into passive resistance and took other measures to claim that women are equal. After almost 20 years of fighting, the right to vote was finally granted in 1919 (USA) and 1920 (UK). Being a political decision, it had a strong impact on the women’s lives and their appearance. Long hair was cut, and skirts shortened, the corsets went. Around then Coco Chanel invented the little black dress offering an unknown freedom of movement tot he wearer. She was right when she said, this dress would be “a sort of uniform for all women of taste.“ Today we think of Flappers, thinking back tot he glorious 20s, who would not have been without some brave women fighting for their rights.

But there are other ways to be brave, face an illness, be there for others, raise children, solidarize and to speak up when needed, to name a few.

When talking about the Love Donna Event (http://lovedonnaflora.wordpress.com/2013/07/02/so-cancer-happened/), Mal and I decided to pay our tribute, too. I guess you will get why we picked the 20’s theme.

 

As Mal was too late fort he Love Donna Flora event, she will donate all her Flapper skins you buy in the main shop. Click here for more details http://wiccamerlin.de/silken-moon-flapper-line/

Or help by visiting the Love Donna Event and enjoy what the awesome designers of SL donated to pay their tribute. The Love for Donna Flora Event will take place from the 25th of July until August the 11th. For a Limo please click HERE (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Brookridge/135/127/31)

Our hearts go out to Sqinternet, the person behind Donna Flora, please send your hearts, too.

http://www.fashionforlifesl.org/

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/DreamSeeker%20Its%20Time/128/128/26

‘Fashion for Life’ is the longest running and most successful fashion fair in Second Life ™ and marks the annual start of the official  ‘Relay for Life’ events that take place inworld each year.

All donations are given directly to the ‘Relay for Life’ general fund which benefits the ‘American Cancer Society’ and its thousands of beneficiaries who rely on the charity for support and advice.

Fashion for Life is a hundred percent not for profit, and all organisation, building work and coordination are driven by the work of its volunteers which helps to maximise donated money.

So what’s New for 2012?

This year, Fashion for Life spans an incredible TEN lag free sims with over 200 stores selling the latest fashions, accessories, hair and unique designer items made especially for this event. There will also be gacha areas, a hunt, a raffle and a SALE- all with the end goal of raising funds for the American Cancer Society via SL.

The sims will be laid out in a cross formation and will represent the theme “Its Time…” with builds representing stages in time:  past, present, future and timeless. All building and landscaping have been created by some of SL’s top designers and builders to produce a beautiful environment for your charity shopping sprees!

Alongside the fabulous fashion, there will be a sim dedicated to providing a minimum of 12 hours entertainment and activities every day, so you can socialise, have fun and meet new people too.

Our sims have been kindly sponsored by ‘Dream Seeker Estate Corporation’ which has drastically reduced admin expenses, helping to free up even more money for Relay for Life.

Harper Beresford, Fashion for Life Lead executive says:
“Fashion for Life is not just about fashion and it’s not just about fund raising-it’s about supporting the members of our community in SL who have been touched by cancer.”

Cancer touches everyone. We sincerely hope you join us in this kick-off event for Relay for Life in SL, helping raise money for the American Cancer Society.

The “Nala” gown was made by Poulet Koenkamp, and it is the 4th of the PurpleMoon gowns that made it to the Top 12 of this years Miss Virtual World Challenge. The dress is a wonderful combination of different fabrics. The delicate lace for the upper body and the attachment at the left side of the legs, the satin part for the basic gown and the wonderful line that parts the top from the bottom and oyu just get the feeling you could grab it and make a little ribbon out of it, so real it looks. The left shoulder remains free and at the right shoulder we have an awesome filigree lace part that covers it. The “Nala” gown you can find at the PurpleMoon Mainstore, even in more colors then the nude version Nala was wearing for MVW. The wonderful jewelry for the evening gown of Miss Estonia 2012 was made by Squinternet Larnia, owner and designer of Donna Flora. The beautiful “Ginger” set contains necklace, a pair of earrings and the ring for the right hand. The gems are so wonderful textured and the filigree frames that hold the gems show the wonderful designing skills of Squinternet Larnia.
