FFL '12: Vaughn's - Not a Tube Dress in Sight

I love Marleen Vaughn!  She does what she loves and always has.  She listens to her muse and won't compromise to reap the profit.  And she is really funny but I can't print most of that.  I've been kind of quietly fan-girling her ever since she had her previous store, Marly's and was happy to see her take on Fashion for Life!  She has a very eclectic collection at her FFL shop on Czas. (For those of you that have not looked at any other blogs and have no clue what FFL is, I will gleefully explain at the end of the post.)  Marls made some outfits, some hair, and some nifty furniture and decor, all of which have their own retro flair.  Marleen is donating 100% of the profits from her items as FFL to Relay for Life.

Pucci in my pocket is a damn sexy hot pink catsuit topped by a sculpted jacket.  The ruffled collar and the nifty little Pucci-esque scarf give it a great cosmopolitain flair that is fun to dress up with acessories like a great pair of sunglasses.
Marls also made the divatastic Swan Song hair, which comes in 4 basic shades and includes matching hair bases.  The Zarah earrings are from Bliensen + MaiTai and are also at FFL.  I will have to do my major homage to Plurabelle's offerings at the fair in a post real soon.
When Marleen dropped her FFL items on me and I saw a folder called "Floral Arrangement" I originally thought WTF because it just didn't seem very Marleen-ish to do a vase with flowers.  How foolish of me as her version of it is a mod long dress.  The shirt part is shown here with just one layer since this is high fashion, you know, but for a modest look just wear more layers and nobody will shun you.  In the background is the Atomic Bar and a robot toy that is part of a toy set or the Atomic Living set.  The bar and the stool cushions are color change as are complimenting pieces in the other parts of the set.  The bar is animated for bar tending or seating.
Marleen's True Grit hair is just wierd enough for me to LOVE it.  Like Swan Song, all four colors are included as well as hair bases.  For some reason I want to pretend I am Mrs. Robinson and play cougar when I wear it.
Fashion for Life runs for only 10 short days and is spread out over 10 sims so expect a rather lag free shopping experience.  Each designer has items where 100 % of the profits will be donated to Relay for Life.  Complete details as well as maps, slurls, information regarding hunts, raffles, gachas and other entertainment can be found on the official Fashion for Life website.
