Letting Loose With Fashion For Change

Well, this is it!
My last entry regarding Fashion For Change on
the last day of a worthwhile event.
It began with The Power of Love with Fashion For Change to
The Wizard of Awe Loves Fashion For Change featuring Baboom.
I then featured Lyrical Bizarre Templates by
Being Kewpie With Fashion For Change
and later announcing There’s a Fairy Godmother at Fashion For Change
with Romance Couture waving her magic wand.
Now, on this last chance to bring attention to FFC 2015
and Womankind Worldwide, the charity this event supports,
I’ve chosen these last two designers:

WICCA’S WARDROBE
&
COCO!

Making_Strides

There are many things I love about Wicca Merlin.
One of them is the fact that she understands my
occasional need for the outrageous.
Giving me carte blanche to style her designs as I see fit,
this sense of freedom has brought about some
of the best images I have ever created.
With that said, allow me to introduce Wicca Wardrobe’s contribution to FFC which is the Aelinia Jacket in Marsala.
With this being for charity,
I decided not to let myself become too loose
and allow the design to speak for itself.
And speak it does, but not alone.
The Thigh High Boots in Black by COCO work perfectly.
Sleek, slim and without a lot of bells and whistles to distract,
these boots are the grand go-to choice.

<sniffs>
On this, being my last Fashion For Change entry,
I’d like to thank FFC’s staff for putting their faith
in my ability to bring attention to their cause.  I hope I did not disappoint.
And don’t you disappoint, either.
Here’s the key to your Bentley.
Hop in, make a purchase(s) and change lives.

Peace be unto you ♥

There’s a Fairy Godmother at Fashion For Change

Cinderella.
You know the story…
An underprivileged chick whose father has bad taste in women,
slaves away for her hateful stepmother and fugly stepsisters.
But, whom shall appear to rescue our fair damsel from distress?
Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo!
Well, guess what?
Cindy doesn’t hold the monopoly on fairy godmothers.
Fashion For Change has their very own and she is willing to
bestow upon us all our couture desires.
I wanted to be a lady — a pretty woman even Julia Roberts couldn’t touch.

POOF!

Pretty_WomanComplete transformation!

Last week my chosen Fashion For Change designers were
Boom and Lyrical Bizarre Templates.

Today, the spotlight is on
ROMANCE COUTURE!

Romance Couture aka Fashion For Change’s Fairy Godmother,
delivers to us this oh so lady-like ensemble called Garalang.
Coming in many colors, I chose the vibrant blue.
The rest of the work was pretty much done for me since Garalang comes in tow with a matching purse and hat.
Now, I am sitting pretty.
So can you.
All you have to do is make a wish, click your heels three times and you’re there.
Yes, yes…I know it’s the wrong story, but all is fair in fashion and fantasy.

Fashion For Change.
It’s a great cause

Being A Kewpie With Fashion For Change

The Kewpie Doll.
How adorable they are.
Normally seen wearing nothing but a smile,  they are the epitome of innocence.
Thanks to Fashion For Change, all of that is about to change.
Not their innocence, but their nakedness.

In my last entry, I featured the Fashion For Change designer Baboom in
The Wizard of Awe Loves Fashion For Change.
Who shall the talented designer be for today?

LYRICAL BIZARRE TEMPLATES!

Kewpie_DollLadies and Gentlemen,
I am self-proclaiming to be the official Fashion For Change Kewpie Doll.
Isn’t this ensemble, fab?
It’s called Lolita and words cannot express how much I adore it.
The bright colors of the sexy top and cleverly designed skirt are a
magnet for the eyes.
I, being a mix and matcher, will catch myself dreaming about the different ways I can incorporate each piece with other clothing items.
You will, too.
‘Tis Haute Couture at it’s finest.
However, there are only six Fashion For Change days left to snag this delight,
so don’t dawdle.
Besides, it’s for a very worthy cause and when we bless others,
we in turn are blessed ♥

The Wizard of Awe Loves Fashion For Change

Greetings, Lovers of the Universe!
How is life treating you?
My life is grand.
I’m full off of pizza, cinnamon sticks and orange soda.
I’m not being threatened with violence, inequality and discrimination.
I’m blessed.
However, there are those who are not as fortunate.
Have no idea what I’m referring to?
That can only mean one thing.  You missed my last entry.
Shame on you!
But, not to worry.  Here is the chance to redeem yourself.
Take a moment to read The Power of Love with Fashion For Change.
I’ll wait.

Finished?
Good.  Now we are on the same page and I can proceed with my first featured designer:

BABOOM

Wizard_of_Awe

This ethnic ensemble is called Mandala and consists of a mesh dress, two upper arm bracelets, two lower arm bracelets, a hat and a bow.
One of the features I love about Mandala is that the hat and bow are completely modifiable.  This means if you have a big head or a sloped forehead as I do, re-sizing the hat is easy peasy.  What’s that?  You’re not into hats?  Not a problem because the bow looks great independently on it’s own.  Wear it in your hair or shrink it and attached it to your chest for a nice touch.
Btw, you won’t need to wear the bow in the back since the dress comes with a large red one already attached.

Follow the yellow textured prim brick road to Fashion For Change and look for Baboom.
It’s for a worthy cause ♥

The Power of Love with Fashion For Change

Fashion For Change Logo

The Power of Love is a curious thing
Make a one man weep, make another man sing
Change a hawk to a little white dove
More than a feeling
That’s the Power of Love

~ Huey Lewis & The News ~

When this tune first hit the airwaves back in the 80s, I was hooked!
With it’s catchy beat, I would blast it loud and hard not paying any
real attention to the song’s title….The Power of Love.
Power.
Love.
Not the weakness of love.
Not the obsessiveness of love.
Not the oh my gawd he gets on my damn ass nerves kind of love.
The Power of Love.
Diagnosed as a “powerful neurological condition”,
Love is a force which can move mountains in it’s purest form.
I’ve said it before in my entry Spiritualism and I’ll say it again…
‘Tis all about Love, Precious.

Now that you’re all warm and fuzzy,
I’d like to draw your attention to the second part of this entry’s title.
The Fashion For Change part.

Womankind Worldwide is a little known International charity,
which does profoundly important work helping to challenge discrimination,
inequality and violence towards women in the developing world.
It provides support to local women’s organizations in these countries
as they fight to improve women’s rights and the lives of women in
Africa, Asia and South America.
Fashion For Change (FFC), is a virtual world charity event sponsored by
The Best of Second Life (BOSL) and Miss Virtual World (MVW).
Open until April 25th, FFC is a fantastic two week shopping,
entertainment and high fashion spectacular designed to raise funds strictly for Womankind Worldwide.

Not into Second Life or any other virtual worlds, for that matter?
Not a problem.  You still can participate.
Go directly to the Womankind site, read all about them and if you would like to support their cause, hit the yellow ‘Give a Gift’ button on the home page.

I have dedicated my time to capturing images of the exclusive designs created by well-known Second Life designers for FFC — designers who are
graciously donating 50% and more from each sale.
So, for the next several posts, I will bring to you Haute Couture along with words of encouragement as we put the Power of Love in action ♥

Be Still

Do you remember that old story in the Bible…
Uh..of course it’s old.  It’s from the Bible.
And don’t get your knickers in a bunch because I mentioned the B word, either.
The Bible, like so many other best sellers, is simply a book.
Read it, use what applies to you and discard the rest.  For me, it is a reference that ties together and gives wisdom to several of my life’s events.  It is not, however, the all inclusive manual to how my spiritual life should be led.
With that said, let me back up to the beginning…

Remember that story where Jesus was on a ship with his disciples and while he was asleep, a storm began to brew?  It was pretty chaotic.  From our standards, it might have been the beginning of a tsunami.
However, Jesus slept.
The disciples were hecka disturbed.
“We are hella in trouble!  The skies are black, the water is rising and I got my new goat skin sandals wet!  How can he sleep at a time like this?
They woke him in a panic asking if he even cared about them.
Duh!
Of course he did and to prove it, he stood and told the storm to, “Be Still.”
It obeyed.

In church, I was told this story all during my childhood and often heard a song sung about it.  Everyone concentrated on the fact that he was able to command the weather, however, not me.  What caught my attention and still lingers today is the fact that in the presence of complete chaos, Jesus was still able to sleep.

Let’s learn to be still.Be_StillIn the presence of adversity — when the world surrounding you is in complete chaos — let’s be still.

When the answer to your prayers and manifestations aren’t happening soon enough.
When you feel you have been forgotten….
…Let’s be still.
We know not the future or what the Universe has in the works for us.
Our meddling can ruin the total outcome.

Be still and let the Universe work her magic. ♥

Peace Within

Secret_PlaceThe world has gone amok!
Well, judging from the headlines, anyway.

“2000 geese fall dead ‘out of the sky’ in Idaho.”
“Mesa Shooting: At least six people shot, 1 killed.”
“Tunisia Gunmen Target Tourism, Killing 19 At An Art Museum.”

And would you believe this was all reported today?
It’s enough to cause panic, fear and uncertainty.
Are we safe?
Will I be next?
I’m scared!

Dear Friend…
It’s okay.
Don’t allow outwardly circumstances disturb your peace from within.
Regardless to what is happening in the world, we have the ability to orchestrate our own happiness — a happiness that shines brighter than any dark cloud could ever dim.

Keep the Faith.
Keep the Hope.
Keep the Love.
Keep Your Peace ♥

Shine Bright, Shine Right

Beacon

(epic music begins)

“You think you have won! What is light without dark? What are you without me? I am a part of you all. You can never defeat me. We are brothers eternal!”

“Actually, that’s not true.  Hate to break it to you since you are the Lord of Darkness and all, but we are all beacons of light.  Sure, some of our lights are much dimmer than others, but the potential to shine bright is there and is waiting for it’s catalyst.
Oh and as far as you being indestructible….
…i love u.”
(epic music scratches to a halt)
GAME OVER

That’s my take on how the movie Legend should have ended.
‘Course, it would have been a total flop at the box office and probably ruined Tom Cruise’s budding career. (There is a God!)
But, the message still stands true.
We are all beacons of light and have the potential to shine bright to lighten and give strength to someone else’s day.
And guess what?
When you shine right (no forced words or fake smiles) which is from the depths of your soul, you glow naturally.
I’ve never mastered the poker face, so when I am going through some sort of pain in my life, it shows.  However, my beacon, even though walled off at the time, finds it’s way through small cracks and tiny crevices shinning outward — connecting to someone who needs it.
Their face changes.
A smile of their own begins to form and because of that, for the moment,
life isn’t so hard.
Not for either of us.

Seeking the Impossible

ReachingForTheUnknown“It’s funny how what I speak lately has been manifested.”
“Oh really?  Well, what if I said that I want you fly?”
“First, you would have to believe in the impossible as I do.  Second, the Universe did not create our bodies to fly.  We have no wings.  But, if you believed and told me to fly, this is what would happen.”
“What?”
“The Universe would send me free airline tickets.”

This is the conversation I had with my son on an elevator.
After my last comment, all he could do was chuckle.
Yes.
Beyond our normal scope of belief, there is an alternate reality.
One that is just waiting for us to believe.
To embrace all possibilities and haul ass until we get there.
That means hella “I Love You” to yourself, reading inspirational info and watching videos such as The Love Revolution.

Seek the impossible.
The Universe will smile upon you.

Manifest The Positive

Tags

Beyond_All_KnowingOne very early morning, I was awaken from a deep sleep by these two words:
Limited Odds.

When things like this happen, I always check to see if I’ve been influenced by outside forces like the TV playing in the background or the radio humming a song.
But, no.  The room was silent.

Limited Odds.
It struck me so that I wrote it down on a piece of paper hanging on my wall.  I wanted to be able to see it, understand it, incorporate it into my thinking and make it a practice in my daily life.
You see, when you have faith and focus on manifesting the positive, the odds that things of an adverse nature will dwindle beyond importance.  They will limit themselves becoming microscopic in comparison to everything else.
It is not an easy thing to do and therefore must be practiced everyday.
Try it and bring forth the sunshine in your life. ♥
