Prep it up…

Let’s face it, there is probably a manual somewhere out there that describes the preppy look to a T. When someone mentions preppy, I automatically think pleated khakis, polo shirts, and quite possibly a sweater tied around the shoulders or waist country club style.   Then again, I am often referred to as “preppy” and have never worn pleated khaki pants or a sweater tied around anything in my life.

During the 1980′s, men may have no doubt taken every word of that fore mentioned manual to heart; the preppy look was, after all, quite a phenomenon during that period. Today, men have the advantage of marrying classic traditions with modern sensibilities. Although khaki pants, sweaters, and polo shirts are still a staple in most men’s wardrobes, the result is often a new sort of modern preppy style. It’s one that remains true to preppy’s inherent roots while embracing the present day’s penchant for flattering cuts and even more flattering colors.

A suit that suits…

Finding a suit that fits your personality in SL can be a ticky ordeal.  Most suits come directly out of the box with little of few layer options that you can add to another suit. By finding designers who include many different layers, lapel styles, and color options, you can create your own unique look and stand out in a  drab sea of navy, black, and gray.

New Moon

A werewolf, also known as a lycanthrope, is a mythological or folkloric human with the ability to shapeshift into a wolf or an anthropomorphic wolf-like creature, either purposely, by being bitten by another werewolf, or after being placed under a curse. This transformation is often associated with the appearance of the full moon, as popularly noted by the medieval chronicler Gervase of Tilbury.

This werewolf inspired look features:

1. Lycan claws from Messer Co., which includes color and texture change (red, white & black) so that it can match with your AV.

2. Lycan eyes and slashed cheek wound tattoo from Repulse - specializes in gory tattoos and eyes. Eyes also include red version and the tattoo comes in left and right side options.

3. Elf ears from SLink. Comes with a HUD to change the color of ears easily. (Ear eraser from Aitui worn to hide the default ears)

4. Outfit from INDI Designs, total 8 different colors available in store, click here to see more!

It goes…

There is a good chance that you’ve been hearing the same old fashion adages since you were little. Your mother probably cringed at the thought of white after Labor Day, and you never dared to wear a leather jacket, belt or shoes that didn’t match. What would you think if I told you many of those rules are outdated and irrelevant in the fashion world of 2011? The truth is, many of them are. One of my favorite old fashion adages is: black and brown don’t match. On the contrary: black and brown go, and look quite sophisticated, too. It’s not whether it “matches” but rather, “does it go”?

Médecins Sans Frontières (commonly referred to as ” Doctors Without Borders ” is an independent humanitarian medical aid organisation. We are committed to providing medical aid where it is most needed, regardless of race, religion, politics or gender and also to raising awareness of the plight of the people we help.

In countries where health structures are insufficient or even non-existant, MSF collaborates with authorities such as the Ministry of Health to provide assistance. MSF works in rehabilitation of hospitals and dispensaries, vaccination programmes and water and sanitation projects. MSF also works in remote health care centres, slum areas and provides training of local personnel. All this is done with the objective of rebuilding health structures to acceptable levels.

Your single donation of:
£44.67 could provide a course of PEP treatment to help ensure that a woman who has been raped does not contract HIV/AIDS.

£80.34 could cover the cost of three day’s cholera treatment for a patient.

£134 would pay for a measles vaccination for 1500 children. Protecting them from a disease that kills over 190,000 children each year.

This charity goes into any and all countries who need medical assistance with real trained professional doctors from across the globe. They don’t discriminate or judge, they just help, and thats why I believe them to be a perfect choice for this event.

Registered charity number: 1026588
