I have the privilege of blogging an amazing event that is starting on the 10th of March. The event is called Fashion Pride Second Life and it is about raising funds for the Aids Committee of Toronto (ACT).
ACT is an organization devoted to educating the public about the dangers of HIV and AIDS, aiding those living with the disease, and researching the best ways to disseminate information to the public. The charity has been around since 1983, continually adjusting its programs to the changing needs of its community. It works with gay men, women, and youth, increasing “knowledge, skills and resilience in the face of HIV, and reducing HIV transmission.”
In order to raise funds for this worthy cause, Fashion Pride has created an exciting week of shopping, entertainment, and fashion shows. Top designers have created exclusive items with 100% of the proceeds being donated to ACT. Our week is filled with entertainment from Regi Yifu from Regimade, SL Live Radio, DJ Kaj, and live music from the lovely Tamra Sands. In addition to exciting parties, we have two fabulous fashion shows from Babylon Model Agency and Les Garcons.
Donation boxes will be placed around the sim with donations going directly to ACT Merryman, the avatar created by the charity to accept donations. Additionally, real life donations can be made on the ACT website here.
I am wearing this very cool outfit from Legal insanity with rainbows which are always awesome and these glasses are from Blackliquid they will be available to buy during the event it is an amazing cause and a great excuse for over shopping.

SO as I hope everyone know by now I have been putting on my muse event Feel Like a Screen Siren. Saturday we had the fashion show and I have to give many praises to the models Averil (extra praise for filling in for an absent model 1 hour befor the show started !), Dementia, Lolita, Lucemia, Miele and Zoomy I have to thank them for participating and doing such a brilliant job with the styling. It was very hard for me to get the nerve to ask them to do the show as they are all models I respect and admire.I still think of myself as a bit of a noob model. I also have to thank JJ Ragu who helped tremendously behind the scene especially with getting a replacement host which brings me to Miss Suki Barrowstone who came to the rescue literally at the last minute to host the show I also have to heap much praise onto Eostri our Dj who went above and beyond and also exceeded my expectations with the music. I think the show went very well considering we all had rezzing issues and the audience were lovely. I have to thank Finesmith for giving me this opportunity I could barely imagine doing something like this before I started but now I have learned alot and I am so happy that I did this. I also have to give thanks to Xenobia Foxclaw who not only donated the venue bit also gave me lots of help. I have gotten alot of praise for the vent but I cant take it because I really couldn’t have done it on my own so thank you to everyone who help me I really appreciate it.
This is the Sophia Loren Dress from Vero Modero that I wore in the Show it come with the hat and sunglasses. Also wearing kissing Lipstick from no.7, Edina Jewellery from Finesmith and hair from Paper couture.
I am in love with these glasses from Faux at second life fashion week. The instant I put them on I felt an attitude come over me. So where better to wear them than to the fashion show for the designs at the Style Icon Fair .

My Finesmith muse event based on screen sirens opens on Monday. It has been an experience putting together an event I had no idea the amount of planning and work that goes into it and as a self employed woman RL you would think I would be better at putting an event together. I am so lucky to have had help especially from Xenobia Foxclaw who not only provided the venue but also gave me valuable advice and help and Yeriak who helped me with the planning and patiently answered all my sometime dumb questions also Yula and Falbala Fairey who did the poster. My feeling through out this has been a mixture of excitement and anxiety, I keep worrying first that no one will want to take part and then that now one will come. I really hope I pull this off and return the faith that Finesmith have put in me especially with the wonderful events that have been put on so far by the other Finesmith Muse Inspirations. The event opens on the 24th of February and continues till the 3rd of March. There will also be a fashion show on the 1st of March.
Please come and enjoy the great items the designers have created, they really did an amazing job.

I actually planned to do a post about the valentine’s day massacre. I am a little anti- valentine’s day, so I had no plans to do anything pink or red or flowery or romantic but them I saw all the amazing events devoted to the day and the great designs and all my plans went out the window, I went to two amazing Fashion Shows First the K.V dreams Valentine Show and the Angels Fall Down to Finesmith Show, they both were so amazing the decor and the fashions and the wonderful models, I got to wear two dresses I have been dying for an event to wear them to the ever chic Bowman dress from Cashmere and Keane and the Tainted Love Gown from Dead Dollz, I am in love with this gorgeous rose print on this gown. P.S I have to give Tyra much praise for her amazing event it is so inspiring and a little intimidated with regards to my own muse event.

The style Icon Fair is opened and the designers have let their creativity shine for this event. Zibska very generously had a contest to guess the style inspiration for their mini collection with the prize being the entire Zibska mini collection. No one managed to guess the correct style Icon who is Zelda Fitzgerald, and so Zibska held a draw and I won !!! I am so thrilled as I love Zibska and it is really a stunning collection which includes makeup. I have chosen this outfit to show off because it fits with Zelda Fitzgerald as inspiration, I am in love with the hat that comes with the outfit I can see myself wearing it many times to come.
