FFC is now going strong and hopefully you have had an opportunity to head over to the Womankind Worldwide Website to read about some of the wonderful things this organization is doing to help women in need. As I read over some of the individual experiences of these women it makes me very grateful for what I have and it serves to remind me that I take it for granted almost every day. Today, I'm featuring the FFC exclusive offered by Baboom, a beautiful ethnic gown with matching head wrap, called "Mandala". The lovely gold arm bands, bracelets and choker are included. The theme of the event is "Haute Couture goes Ethnic" and Baboom's interpretation is perfect!
THE WALL of REMEMBRANCE
I came upon a Wall the other day
a memorial, long and grim and grey,
names carved upon it speaking of heroics
but not of the accepted kind,
a living list growing daily stretching
east and west, north and south
upon all the continents.
The granite face of it bled and cried
for those who’d died so needlessly –
mothers, children, wives;
intimidated, beaten, bruised,
butchered, choked and shot –
these casualties unspeakable,
fatal refuse of familial strife,
announcing where some vicious coward in their weakness
had stolen another precious life.
Standing there and watching that dismal listing grow
I saw increasing numbers of people I used to know –
once living, breathing, talented and contributing,
yet vulnerable, oh so vulnerable
to those who’d never learned to value them.
Search the Wall; make a rubbing of some name
as momento of our neglectful shame
in that we tolerate, ignore, deny,
those brutal facts of harm in toxic homes.
Don’t let another day go by
before you speak or write or act;
reach out to someone hurting –
why should another woman have to die?

Lyrical B!zarre has brought us this lovely exclusive for FFC titled "Lolita", in a beautiful shade of pink. The two piece set consists of a ruffle layered top with a full skirt. The top is solid but the skirt has a muted floral print with touches of fawn and deep red. I'm sporting a sassy short haircut called "Makoto" by Argrace. It's playfulness balances out the more formal skirt set, the final touch being the casual and sporty earrings and bracelet set called "Omochi" by Mandala. This skirt set makes me feel so pretty and feminine, it's perfect for FFC! It reminds me that sometimes we have to take a bit of time for ourselves, to remember we are empowered and in charge of our destiny!
