When you finally go back to your old hometown, you find it wasn’t the old home you missed but your childhood. ~ Sam Ewing
Fashion for Life opens tomorrow and of course, it’s a scramble to get things done in the background. I have been so pleasantly surprised and entranced by the sims that I have not been of much help. Walking around going “ooh” and “aah” is not productive. Bianca Bender built this sim for Fashion for Life and it’s absolutely amazing with the Western vistas and the great retro feel of the cars and the buildings. It’s a perfect vision of a hometown in the Western US with a main street and cars parked in lots and along the streets.
Ariadna Garrigus is offering this lovely dress at Fashion for Life with a portion of the proceeds going to RFL. With pretty flowers on the skirt and around the waist, she has created a girlish dress that has a touch of sexy with its sleeveless cut and feminine silhouette. Shoes from Lonlysoule, which she is offering at the Thrift Shop (opening June 8), make the look a little more sophisticated—like a city girl come home to visit.
JuneMonteiro is generously offering proceeds from this gorgeous skin to RFL at Fashion for Life. With several lipstick and makeup options and appliers, this skin is beautifully rendered and creates a sexy sophisticated look. My tousled hair is Mina Nakamura’s exclusive for Fashion for Life, a wondrous flow of sexy locks, this shown with materials (which is why you see some lightening in the strands).
“Everybody that went away suffered a broken heart. ‘I’m coming back some day,’ they all wrote. But never did. The old life was too small to fit anymore.” ~ Annie Proulx, The Shipping News
