Avenue is having an amazing Fashion show and event called Couture of Hope.  There are many fantastic, generous designers that are contributing to this event with 100% of the proceeds given to Relay for Life.  This organization is huge for raising money for cancer research to find a cure,  "Relay For Life gives you and your community the opportunity to celebrate cancer survivors, remember and honour loved ones lost to cancer and fight back against all cancers".  This is such an incredible honor for me to be able to blog for this wonderful event. Couture for Hope will continue through the month of May so keep your eyes and ears out to the blogs to keep informed and see these inspiring creations!  In my RL my mother is a three time cancer survivor, twice with ovarian cancer and once with cancer in her kidney.  So cancer has touched my life not only with my mother but with others and I know it has touched many of your lives as well.  I would personally like to thank Avenue and all the designers for contributing their time, effort and creativity to this wonderful fund raising event. 


 This incredible gown from Mami Jewell of Azul called Farfalla, a donation to AVENUE - Couture of Hope. Mami never fails to excite and entice us with her creativity and talent! The sensational half shirt strapless has sheer fabric covering the tummy, a sheer and lace ornamental piece off to one side and complimenting the dazzling sheer teal skirting that falls in an angle cut layered skirt with lace trim.  It falls to the feet in gorgeous uneven layers.  The lovely summer color just adds to the ambiance of this gown.

The detail is just beautiful and it looks so soft and airy, like it would flow with you like a summer breeze moving around your body.  This is one you must add to your collection from Azul, go down to the event today and pick up this beautiful gown and support a great cause.


 Angel of Hope from Agnes Finney of My Precious Agnes, donation to AVENUE - Couture of Hope.  This dress is breathtaking, from the lace strapless bodice, the incredible white feather and rose accented sleeves to the amazingly detailed skirt made of layers and layers of white feathers that line up perfectly, fanning out an moving like a dream.  It is one of the most stunning gowns I have ever seen.  The details are just remarkable, it is truly a one of a kind!

The hat is the final touch a large white tropical flower with feathers and petals, perfectly crafted to form a flawless hat to match this perfect gown, so aptly named Angel of Hope it truly is made for an angel. Heavenly!  See the event to purchase your copy and support RFL.


 Angelina Eizenberg of Indie Rose created this vintage masterpiece called Doris with matching jewelry called Pearly Rose.  This exquisite and delicate off white, low cut spaghetti strap top covered with a sheer off white sparkly antique white top flows into a matching waist and is accented with an antique white ribbon running crisscross up the bust and around the arms.  Then flows smoothly into a slim fit satin off white pants and then layers of ruffles flowing off the legs to the ground, so beautifully it almost gives the illusion of being a dress and you can almost feel the perfect, smooth satin on your skin.

The Jewelry is a refined dusky rose and pearl set that matches the rose applique on the side of the pants.  The long wrapped hanging pearl necklace sits perfectly and the lovely triple wrapped pearl bracelet graces the arm and the matching earrings just adds a simple finish.  This is the perfect outfit for almost any occasion, classy, vintage, feminine, gorgeous!  Visit the event and pick up yours today and support RFL.


Sykao Adamski of Entre Mares brings us Wish, a donation to AVENUE - Couture of Hope.  This stunning barely there swirled white lace bodice and white feather, sexy open leg skirt is just lovely!  The imagination and creativity of the large white feathers cascading down the skirt and flowing out from the feather wings inspire!  There are matching lace long gloves that add elegance to this remarkable gown!

 You can see the perfect feathers and minute detail in the the spun lace.  Sykao plays with light to make the feathers glow and some appear almost transparent.

The back of the skirt flairs out and flows with you as you move.  This is a very intricate piece and just incredible to see on!  Please go down to the event and purchase yours today and support RFL.

 This cute skin and Shape is from Blush skins and Shapes from creator Marie Whitfield called Grace and the shape is Purite.  The skin is lovely and has an almost slight sheen to it, very even coloring and beautiful definition.

I love the shape it has the cutest bottom!  It is really well proportioned.  I loved how different the shape was from others, it has a very unique look.

The make up on the skin is really lovely I thought it looked very fairy like or it could also be worn as an Avant Garde stunner!  Very well made skins, definitely worth coming down to AVENUE Couture of Hope to bid on!!!
