Love Among The Ruins

Beauty and grace are never out of place. One designer who has long represented not only beauty and grace, but also nod to the classic, is Donna Flora's Squinternet Larnia. I first met this generous designer  a few years ago when I invited her to bring her beautiful dresses and accessories to Retrology, later I blogged her often, and modeled her clothing on the the SL runway multiple times. I found her to be sweet, and friendly, and oh so talented. Recently myself, and the rest of the SL community, became aware of her battle with cancer, and as often is the case, SL answered with its usual outpouring of affection for one of our own. The Love Donna Flora fundraising event was created by some very caring individuals and it was quickly supported by dozens of designers and bloggers, all hoping to make a contribution to celebrate and support this wonderful and talented individual.

I am not only wearing some beautiful Donna Flora accessories, but also a new skin by longtime friend of the designer Hart Larson of PXL Skins. Jade just hit the store in full release yesterday, and she is a beguiling sweet face with beautiful options, and an incredible body. The gown is a creation by Sissy Pesoa of Baiastice, created specifically for the Love Donna Flora event, it is a perfect dress to create a canvas to display your Donna Flora jewels. The shoes are another perfect fit from Gos Boutique, these ones feature a removable heel cup, so you get two looks in one. I have merged the two styles into the one photo so you can see with and without the heel cup.
I urge you to visit the Love Donna Flora event starting July 25th and running until the August 11th.
