Brand spankin’ new from this month’s edition of The Chapter Four, comes this sweet little boho dittie from Potcha, “The Ethnic Blouse & Denim” set. This fabulous hair from Moon is also one of the highlights of The Chapter Four. If you can get in (only took me about 10 minutes of obsessive TP clicking), you will find plenty of treats perfect for the transition into the summer months. I’m ready for a cold brewski at the campground, anyone care to join?

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.

Hi again lovelies! So I am quite behind in my blogging assignments of late and it dawned on me that I am WAY overdue to share one of the most important ones of all! Here is my styling for the “Earth Hour Challenge” in this years Colour of Couture Top Model Competition. Can you tell I had a lot of fun with this one? The Earth Hour show took place on March 22nd (see I’m only a month late), and was quite an event. As you can see there were countless designers sponsoring the event, and it was the live runway debut of the Colour of Couture candidates. Our challenge? “FOR EARTH HOUR YOU WILL STYLE COSMO COUTURE. THIS WILL BE FUN AND WILD SO THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX HOWEVER; YOU WILL HAVE TO USE YOUR PRIMARY COLORS OF BLUE/GREEN TO REPRESENT THE EARTH.” I hope you enjoy my interpretation.
Dress: Eshi Otawara “Deadly Kitten” in Blue

Face Jewelery: Eshi Otawara “Shakti Face Jewelery”
Hair: Discord Designs “Bobbi” in Intense Unnaturals (Marine)
Earth Globe by Dexx Magic
Shoes: Azoury “Chromatics Ballet Heels Shoe” in Dark Forest
Skin: Deesses Skins “Amanda” in Cappucino
Lipstick: MUA “Bicolor” Gift in Silver/ Blue
Blush: Dead Apples “Contour Blush” in Peach Dark

With this styling I tried to blend organic elements of the Earth with both cosmic and spiritual elements. I wanted my outfit to reflect the fantastic mysteries of the Universe and where we Earthlings fit into the grand scheme of things. I styled myself as a mystical goddess, balancing the Earth effortlessly on my crown as I dance through the galaxy. We see this dance of the Goddess in all things, cycles, and seasons, and the more in tune we are to these cosmic patterns, the better off our planet and all of its inhabitants will be.
My friend and photographer Chii Kimagawa really wanted to try a photograph on this lovely set, so I put together this little ditty which I thought would add just the right amount of drama and elegance ^^
