Soles4Souls, a charity I belive in and we can easily support! #Colour of Couture

Hey hey all 🙂  Our last Colour of Couture challenge was an especially exciting one.  We had a chance to research a real life Charity which we would like to support, should we be chosen as Miss Colour of Couture 2014.  After some debate I chose the Soles4Souls campaign, which holds a four-star rating with Charity Navigator.

Did you know that there are approximately 3 BILLION people living in poverty on our planet?  And did you realize that at least 3 MILLION of those people don’t even own shoes?  Yet, we throw away nearly 700,000 tons of apparel and footwear in our landfills annually.  Soles4Souls offers a simple and practical solution to solving this problem.  Rather than throw your shoes away, simply donate them to a Soles4Souls local drop box, or raise community awareness by starting your own drop box in your community.

Soles4Souls estimates that every dollar donation = a pair of shoes for someone in need.  The organization has partnered up with several global shoe companies who are now regularly donating their rejected shoes and older models.  One of the most exciting opportunities of the Soles4Souls organization is the creation of micro-businesses throughout the world, which allows people to profit off the sale of the shoes and have hope in their lives for the future.

We were asked to style something which would represent us as an ambassador of the Charity of our choice.  Today I wish to share my presentation build with you, as well as my Loovus Dzevavor “shoe dress” styling.  Please read more about Soles4Souls today at http://soles4souls.org/  And be on the lookout for a big Shoe Fair this coming fall, if i am fortunate to bring my dream to fruition.

Vintage romance with Zanze’s “Vivienne”

Happy Saturday lovelies!  Just look at this stunning new design from Zanze, the lovely “Vivienne” dress!  “Vivienne” is a highly detailed vintage style dress in rigged mesh and comes in two colors, Champagne and Platinum:

Vivienne_004

Vivienne stuns with it’s frilly and romantic layers of fabric expertly placed over the sequin gown to enhance feminine curves.  The ruffles create almost a Victorian bustle effect, but I found the total silhouette of the dress to be very 1930’s and therefore styled with that in mind.  Head down to Zanze today to get your very own “Vivienne” and romantic spring evenings are sure to follow!

Dress:  Zanze “Vivienne” in Champagne
Hair: D!va “Layla” (Type A) in Brown Diamond
Earrings: Donna Flora “Daniel” Topaz Diamond Earrings
Necklace: Donna Flora “Lumiere” Necklace 2
Gloves: Adam & Eve for SLink “Opera Gloves” in White
Clutch: Chop Zuey “All That Glitters” clutch purse
Head & Hands:  SLink

Pink Shirt Day 2/26!

Dear lovelies,

Have you heard about “Pink Shirt Day”?  This new tradition began when two Nova Scotia High School boys decided to make an anti-bullying statement when a fellow 9th grader was being bullied for wearing a pink shirt at school.  These boys bought 50 pink shirts and distributed them to their male peers, and the idea caught on like wildfire as the staff of the school joined in.  The bullies had to face up to a sea of pink and (legend has it) were never heard from again.  What a wonderful non-violent protest against one of our nation’s biggest illnesses!  Today in Second Life you too can support Pink Shirt Day and make your own anti-bullying statement.  Purple Moon Creations has created both a male and female mesh “Bullying Stops Here” pink shirt.  Net proceeds from Pink Shirt Day activities & t-shirt sales benefit the CKNW Orphans’ Fund in support of Boys & Girls Clubs Anti-Bullying programs. All transactions will be published at http://purplemooncreations.blogspot.com/p/pink-shirt-day-2014.html.  You are highly encouraged to donate as much as you can, although at the minimum, please purchase the 10L shirt and wear it with pride to spread awareness.
