There is a special event today at 2.30 pm at I'm Not Your Toy.

A dance performance not to be missed!
Please come and lend your Support and help Stop Child Abuse.

Blue for You

Another post featuring I'm Not Your Toy fundraising items. This is a fabulous cause that could really use people getting behind it, if even just for a few $L. The quality of the Designers and their offerings is fabulous!
For more information see I'm Not Your Toy blog.

This Exclusive dress by Amarelo Manga really needs to be seen in life, the camera cannot do it justice. The shade of blue is gorgeous, and the fabric shimmers with a subtle animated texture that brings a lot of class to what could have been an otherwise fairly plain dress. It is worn here with the Hunt shoes, also by Amarelo Manga in a matching blue.
To accesorize, I chose this fabulous Mika jewel set that came with a dress also (not worn here). This set includes necklace, earrings and bracelet by Finesmith. On my head I chose the Timepiece feathers, with Time Trap in aqua hairpieces also by Finesmith. These two pieces match perfectly and make a nice accompaniment with each other.

I'm Not Your Toy!

I was thrilled when I got selected to blog for this really worthwhile campaign "I'm Not Your Toy". In the words of the INYT blog ""I'm Not Your Toy" goal is to raise funds in SecondLife® for RL non-profit associations against child and woman abuse. With the help of SL® designers, models, bloggers and friends who are ready to give their time and talent with nothing to receive just the happiness to know that together we can made a difference in someone life."
This subject is one that has had a personal impact on my life, having been abused as a child, then also as an adult.
I'm Not Your Toy (INYT) will have the first charity event in Second Life® from June 17th to 23rd, and all donations will go to Associação Projecto Criar (
For more information, and a list of events, and designers participating, please go to I'm Not Your Toy

Today I will showcase 4 of the items available for INYT over 2 separate posts.
First up is this really gorgeous jumpsuit by Ghee that is offered as an exclusive for INYT. I literally lived in this for 4 days when as I was about to take photos of it, just about everything that could go wrong in SL did.
This is soooooo colourful and summery, really brightens up a summers day, or adds cheer to those of us stuck in Southern hemisphere winters. The bright, vibrant aqua, meshes perfectly with the orange scarf making this great for beach or anywhere.
The second is another bright offering, a very sexy, vibrant singlet, and skirt ensemble. The various candy colours in a sort of mock tie-die pattern give this Hunt outfit from AFI Designs a very summery feel. And the outline daisy on the top adds a touch of whimsy. This really is one of those go-to outfits when you want a quick throw on for some sun fun.
I have been very surprised over the quality of the items available in this event. They really are Must-haves for the season. And you are supporting a great cause as well.

La Traviata

As seems to be usual with me it is a space between posts. It's never intentional, just a lot of other things get in the way. I'
Today I am wearing this absolutely stunningly gorgeous gown and jewels set from Chop Zuey, and only available at Fashion Limited! There is only 100 copies of this at HALF price, so run, run, run and grab it. The included jewellery alone is worth the cost.
In a delicate shade of Ivory, draped and wrapped around the body and ending in a mermaid skirt, this gown will turn heads wherever you go.
La Traviata_full
The long opera-length gloves ending in jewel encrusted cuffs, and a matching jewel encrusted sash give the gown a luxurious, priceless look.
La Traviata_upper
The sash can be removed so the gown can also be worn for a slightly "formal" look, which then also shows off the lovely necklace included in the set. There is also matching bracelets and earrings. Which of course can be worn alone with other outfits. Chop Zuey have opened a Sky Shop where they are selling other very lovely gown/jewellery ensembles for that complete look.
