One of my favorite designers, Squinternet Larnia of Donna Flora, could not participate this year due to being ill herself; I'm choosing to wear her jewelry here in this post, and (as I'm sure she would do, too) I'm encouraging everyone -- even if they don't want to shop -- to visit Fashion for Life and donate something (even if it's just a few $L). Harper has painstakingly organized 1 of the most respected events on the grid, and you have more than a week to visit the 9 spectacular builds (all themed around totally different concepts, from a retro '50s-like "diner" build to my favorite, an Art Deco-styled open area with a giant moon looming in the background).
Hopefully you will never know the fear + devastation that cancer can wreak onto a human life, but if you do, with everyone's continued support for continued research and new breakthroughs, maybe it won't have to feel like a death sentence, after all.
Compassionate shopping love + fashionista kisses to all!
*NOTE: You can learn more about the Fashion for Life event by visiting the official website here; on a purely stylistic note, this week's new "Kathy" bouffant updo by Truth goes so spot-on perfectly with so many of the formalwear styles taking center stage at this annual event. Happy shopping!
