Stepping outside my box

Predictability......whether you think you are predictable or not, you are. I always thought that I was different or tried to be unpredictable, but no matter how much I try, I always seem to rely on the same basics all the time. 

Just the other day, I noticed that even in my blog posts, I was getting comfortable and using the same things for each post. Nothing ever changed...

Well, this is a post where I have stepped out of my box even just a little bit, but I am reminded that not everyone has the ability to step outside of their box. This leads me to the purpose for this outfit....

The "Dreams Way" project was created with the purpose of helping "Brigadoon Explorers" and "Dreams" Foundations, which are active in organizing various activities for people affected by A/S and autism. 

The agency is present in Second Life with an active avatar: Golda Stein.
All proceeds from the event will be payed on a cashier avatar named "Dreamsway Resident" created by founder of Dreams Way, Shanty Bookmite. Once the event ends all the incomes will be devolved to Golda Stein through an SL transaction.
For greater transparency, Shanty Bookmite will post on the blog ( a record of every transaction to Dreamsway Resident as well as the final transaction to Golda Stein. Each participant to the event will be able to verify the amount of each transaction and that all the proceeds will be devolved to the avatar representing the Foundations, Golda Stein.

It was due to the Dreams Way project that I was able to participate in a runway charity event show with Charltina's. The show director, Boniefacio and his partner, Ponchituti Boucher, were doing style checks for this event. Well, shocker, I arrive in my normal "inside the box" styling and immediately they tell me that I need to edge this outfit up, do something different. It was even suggested that I wear a short hair with shaved on the side and I was sent out to do something different. 

Rule #1....never leave me to my own device lol. Not only did I purchase one new hair....I think I ended up purchasing five. Designers love it! lol

Since my favorite color is purple, I went crazy incorporating color into the gray and black outfit. Upon my return, to show off my new styling, I was greeted with raves.

Please remember to participate in the Dreams Way events and/or visit the website, do what ever you can to support Autism activities :)
