Would You Adam n Eve It?

I live somewhat near London, but not near enough to get away with Cockney rhyming slang. So, I apologize for the title, Londoners. It was wrong of me.
Anyway! The glorious sachi Vixen of Adam n Eve dropped this gorgeous dress on me earlier today! It's a funny thing about Adam n Eve, when I started, they were one of the huge big names in SL, but now you don't hear so much about them. This is a pity, because they still produce oodles, OODLES of beautiful things, I'm particularly taken with their skins, very much worth checking out <3.
This dress is a bit of a departure in style from what I might expect from the store, which is a pleasant surprise. It's also more daring than I normally dress, I think I'm getting prudish in my old age, so it was nice to see my legs!
The Off The Hook dress can be worn in three main ways (I can eke more styles out, but I'm creative!). The first is this sexy micromini dress, with strategically placed fishnet rippy bits, punky but tasteful, the most "shockingly" revealing part is a tiny bit of butt crack showing through the fishnet at the back. I enjoy how it's traditionally sexy, without making one look like they forgot to...y'know. Wear clothes.
This is a dress that can go from night to...well. Later that night!
The second way of wearing Off The Hook is more 'me'. More cabaret-ish. Have I ever mentioned how much I love open-fronted skirts? I should do so more often. I really should. The flexi option is luxurious and cascading and danceable and oh so hot, with a long layer of tulle and raggedly feathery bits, and gently bustley solid panels at the hips and behind. The dress also comes in a spicy yummy red.

Having stripped myself of everything aside from the Teddy Bottoms of the dress, I can show show off my adorable kanji tattoo which I am informed says "Love", a gift instore at Adam n Eve for a limited time, go grab at

Haiti Earthquake Relief Fund Appeal

One of the biggest aid efforts in history is currently underway in the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, following January 12th's earthquake in Haiti. An estimate of 200,000 died in the quake and its aftermath, and as many as a million people have been left homeless, but you don't need me to tell you these things, you know, you've seen. It's horrible. Rescue attempts to the troubled area were delayed due to infrastructure and political problems, but now aid is getting through, and what matters now is that there is sufficient resources for agencies such as the International Red Cross, the United Nations, Médecins Sans Frontières, and all the other providers of aid to help the survivors of the tragedy, start clearing away rubble, and rebuilding the nation.

Within Second Life, you can help by first donating what you can at Red Cross Donation kiosks, and spending what you have left at the fundraising event here: . Scores of top designers have set up booths here, with all money from the purchases there going towards the Red Cross Haiti Earthquake fund. There are some beautiful pieces there, and everything I'm wearing in this post has come from there.
Another way you can help through shopping is by puchasing the special Limited Edition Alien Ozimals bunny, an Elite level rabbit designed by [europa]. I'd post a picture, but I daren't rez mine just yet, I'm still getting the hang of my normal rabbits! The [europa] Alien Ozimals Bunny is available for a limited period of time from the Future is Now event area at the Rezzable Greenies sim, here: and the bunny is strictly limited to one per avatar. All Ozimals profits will go to, "a grassroots movement that builds global awareness for Haiti while helping to transform the country through programs in education, sports, the arts and environment. Yéle’s community service programs include food distribution and mobilizing emergency relief." There is also a donation kiosk set up at the Ozimals mainstore (, where you can get a commerorative (but not redeemable) Alien Bunny ticket.

Please, be generous in your donations, these people desperately need all the help we can give.
