i dressed around my shoes today (and am actually wearin’ pants, surprisingly, considering what i said in this post right here, ahaha)… and what amazing, amazing shoes they are.
don’t worry, there’s a close up of ’em further down. ;)
they’re new from gos && are out @ the fashion for life event (that’s where i picked ’em up, but they are available at the mainstore, too!) and i absolutely adore them. they are… delicious boots. i also blogged the eyes from insufferable dastard available at the FFL event yesterday, and am wearin’ a second pair in another gorgeous color in this look today… but i thought since i didn’t mention the event at all in my last post, that i would today.
time to get a li’l bit personal~
cancer… hits very close to home for me. i lost my dad to cancer 14 years ago && even to this day, it is something i still struggle to deal with. he went through chemo, through countless surgeries, and spent more time in the hospital in his last few months than he did at home. he was sick for a very long time and when i lost him, words cannot truly describe how much hurt i felt. how much i still feel.
so an event like fashion for life… i went with bff vivi and we bought donation items and, in our own li’l way, supported a cause in the hopes that maybe our lindens can help prevent another family going through what i went through. that maybe someone else’s father won’t lose the battle in the (hopefully near) future.
plus, you get some fantastic items in return for your donations.. so it truly is win-win to visit the various sims && pick yourself up some nice new shinies. somehow, the items look even better on when you know you bought them to support a really fantastic cause.
all donation items are clearly marked, so make sure you visit your favorite stores on the FFL sims and, at the very least, take a peek at the donation goodies. it really is worth the effort.. ’cause every little bit counts. ❤
