I woke up this morning to find a little notice saying that the Bossa Nova sale would be ending today. Since time zones aren't my strength, it took me a couple of minutes to realize that the sale would be ending in five minutes. Five minutes? Hell, sometimes the simple (ha!) act of teleporting somewhere in SL takes five minutes. Luckily I slid through the ether with little resistance and a quick rez in Bossa Nova helped. Sure enough, Bossa Nova's el jefe Moire Georgette was there, getting ready to end the sale. I already knew what I wanted so I made my purchases quickly, had a brief chat with Moire, and then left so she could attend to her business. You're thrilled about the mundane details of my existence aren't you? Of course you are. But the reason why I wanted to mention Bossa Nova isn't just because I love the dresses, but because there is currently a wonderful dress available with all proceeds to Shine, a fashion benefit for Médecins Sans Frontières.

The "Stella" dress reminds me of 1930s movie glamour--I can absolutely see Myrna Loy wearing this dress in a stylish nightclub. The drape has an almost sculptural Art Deco look to it and is whisper light on the shoulders. If the Stella dress can make a short round girl like me look this good, think of what it will do for you--and you're helping a worthy charity in the process. The dress is 250L, which is around $1 US. There are a couple of lovely freebies available as well, so buy Stella, get the freebies, and average the cost. You'll find it can be cheap to look this good! There are two other limited edition dresses available as part of the fundraiser, so if Stella doesn't float your boat there is a good chance one of the other two will. Or buy all three!
