April 2008


When talking about rasta, rastafarians, Jamaica, tricolours we connect them very often to Bob Marley, the famous reggae artist born in Jamaica as Robert Nesta Marley. He died very young  of cancer, and in his short life, he became a legend: a reggae star, a devout Rastafarian, a humble and gentle man whose music across nearly two decades and yet still remains timeless.

When it comes to fashion, I am sure you have seen or noticed, that tricolor armband, BM t-shirt or rastahair are still very “in” and in Second Life you will have lot of opportunity to mix and match your own rastafari style in many ways since there are many places where to get rasta stuff. This what I am presenting, is just one style of many. Do not hestitate to visit Irie Vibes, Soreal or just type “reggae” in search for places, then there comes out a long list of places related to reggae, rastafari or Bob Marley. The are also a homepage worth looking at : Bob Marley – the official site of BM.

What I wore on picture above:

Product Review – Adam n Eve’s Sakura Gold and Flora Black

The beauty of Flora by Adam n Eve, is that it can be worn as a sumptuous ballroom gown or sexy cocktail dress. With 3 different gown tops to choose from, one with pretty lace trail sleeves, a sleeveless version and a full sleeve, you are spoilt for choice. There is no reason why you shouldn’t go to the ball. Rex Butler is waiting my dear.

A mass of sumptuous silk flowing gracefully down to a delicate patterned hem. The bodice exudes a certain coy sex appeal that is set to drive the men wild. The graceful move of the skirt reminds me of a certain Southern lady who broke her heart over that married rogue of a man, Rex Butler. Of course you can always wear the veil as a reminder of all the broken hearted people. Of which you most definitely are not. So, as I said before dear, you shall go to the ball and stuff that heartless man – there are plenty more fish in the sea.

Included are: 3 different Tops (sleeves) (Top and Jacket), Pants Layer, Skirt, 4 Different Prim Skirts, including a short option, and a Veil.

This darling gown is available in 8 colours, Black, White, Red, Cream, Teal, Pink, Berry and Blue. There is an additional dark Blue/Purple as a bonus in the Brat Pack.
