Love Donna Flora

Squinternet Larnia was the first designer in SL that I ever fangirled. I was shopping at DeLa, and there she was. All I could do really was stammer how much I admired her work. She was gracious and kind, even though I was unfortunately rather new at the time and she probably cringed to think of her lovely work adorning my noob neck. At any rate, for jewelry, accessories and vintage clothing, Donna Flora is one of the cornerstones of SL fashion.

The Love Donna Flora event is to raise money for Squinternet’s fight against breast cancer. The event starts July 25th and runs through August 11th. You can read more about this remarkable woman and the event HERE.

Lybra Rage’s contributions to the event include three gorgeous evening gowns in several colors.

I had to pull out some of my favorite Donna Flora items for this shoot, and my formal updo from LoQ Hair at Hair Fair finishes the look with flair.

All I Want Is You

Oh well you might think I’m crazy
To hang around with you
Or maybe you think I’m lucky
To have somethin’ to do
But I think that you’re wild
Inside me is some child
You might think I’m foolish
Or maybe it’s untrue
You might think I’m crazy
But all I want is you

-The Cars, You Might Think

As we head into the Memorial Day weekend it’s going to be ever-more tempting to shed those winter clothes and head for the water. Damien Fate’s new swimwear line gave Stewart lots of options, but he chose the new Mark trunks. He did try out the new fitted Ian trunks as well but they looked a little, er, too realistic, if you know what I mean!

Hush Darkrose’s newest skin is definitely one to show off in the great outdoors, and Sissy Pessoa’s great denim shorts at the Dressing Room Fusion are great wading wear. I love this great lingerie top from DCNY that is out for Fifty Linden Fridays. I can pretend it’s a bikini top, right?

Detour

Recently it seems like every road that leads to where I work is under construction. Just when I find an unobstructed road, it goes under construction within the week. Sometimes public transportation works, but buses have to travel the same roads,  so it would seem I am out of luck. For the next few years at least, clear roads will  be nothing but a dream!
