RFL … Zaara’s Mahari Bluebells

This is the first time that I’ve used a press pass for the annual Relay for Life Clothing Fair in SL.   (Here’s the official SL Clothing Fair weblog but if you’re raring to go, here’s the slurl to the main entrance of the Clothing Fair.  Do check the end of my weblog entry for the full list of designers in each sim — complete with slurls to the sims — as communicated by the Clothing Fair organizers.)

Everything about this year’s fair is absolutely gorgeous.  The sims are stupendous replicas of famous RL cities, with each sim devoted to the architectural and cultural influences of that city.  The wonderful thing is that even within the incredibly rich setting, the designer shops are laid out in an extremely clear and straightforward manner.  Honestly, as you tour the gorgeous builds and the shops that overflow with a multitude of gorgeous creations, you really do marvel at and appreciate the incredible amount of work that went into every aspect of this event.  Do take a tour, early and often.  Dress appropriately to reduce lag.  Check out Harper’s wonderful and very respected weblog “Passion for Virtual Fashion” for tips on dressing to reduce lag, as well as her always great fashion reviews.  And then step into these beautiful places inworld.  There, you’ll find an abundance of gorgeous fashion.  Throughout this week, I hope to showcase some RFL purchases I made.  By the way, most importantly, how incredible is it that 100 percent of the RFL vendor purchases is donated to help find a cure for cancer!  Is that fact alone enough to have caused me to shop early and often (way often!)?  You bet it is!  And the fact that there is an abundance of gorgeous fashion at the Fair?  Well, to “shop or not to shop” isn’t the question because the immediate answer is “shop!”

Kicking off this week with some of the RFL vendor items I picked up at the Fair is a gorgeous one from Zaara called “Mahari Bluebells.”  This dress immediately caught my eye.  Yet evenso, I have to admit the cut made me a bit nervous initially *only* because my shape is very curvy…very much so.  Typically, billowy or babydoll cuts flail against my shape, failing miserably to conceal all of my rather emphatic curves.  But I love the clean, womanly happy elegantly easy-going feel of this dress so much that I bought it and much to my delightfully happy surprise, Zaara’s “Mahari Bluebells” fits me like a glove.  Indeed, this is the very first time in all my three years in SL that I didn’t have to adjust my shape at all to fit a billowy, high waisted dress like this. 

What a dream of a dress it is, all around…front, back, and side:

Mahari Bluebells from Zaara (RFL 2010 vendor purchase)
Mahari Bluebells from Zaara (RFL 2010 vendor purchase)
Mahari Bluebells from Zaara (RFL 2010 vendor purchase)

I’ll be living in this dress, I can tell.  I just love it.  It’s so completely feminine and gorgeous but in an easy weekend sunny Sunday brunch before shopping with the ladies kind of way.  It makes me want to sashay with joyful confidence.  I’m betting it will have the same effect on everyone who purchases it.  Dash on over to New Delhi where you’ll find oodles of gorgeous RFL vendor items, including Mahari Bluebells from the ever wonderful Zaara.

    1. Greetings! So noted. I corrected it within the listing that I had copied directly from the inworld group notice. Could very well be that something was transposed somehow between the inworld copy and the weblog paste. But at any rate, thanks for catching it and bringing it to my attention!
