A simple, basic look for today, very much like what I’m wearing in RL today. The turtle neck sweater is a group gift from Coco Designs, and the skirt (slightly tinted) is the 2811 black velvet skirt from Pixeldolls. Clothing that basic needs a little accessories, so I’ve picked Icon’s LF gold/wood necklace and Coco Designs’ double belt. My beloved Bax prestige boots are perfect with almost every outfit… but I really love wearing boots with a long skirt… so they were my first choice for today’s outfit.

I’m wearing Hannah, from Truth, in coffee and Tulli’s Bella in fair (Sophia make up), which, according to the latest news, Tuli has finished and will be released onFriday the 6th!!!!

And then about the ribbon I’m wearing… November 5th has been declared Step Up day… step up for content designers, step up against content theft. This is the short of it:

Step UP! is a campaign centred on a special day of action that everyone can become involved with, and that can empower and inform people about the problem of content theft, and what they can do about it.
We are aiming for a day that draws together action, education and celebration. We want a focus that empowers people and allows them to express their own creatvity in a variety of ways. It also draws attention to the strength of feeling that there is here on the grid.
Step UP! Day will be November 5th – Guy Fawkes Day or Bonfire Night in the UK.
Action:
a) On this day – no-one uploads textures to the grid. This should show the economic power of people acting together, without harming content creators. We want Linden Lab to see the power of the feeling about the problem of content theft – and to discuss urgently strategies for tackling it.
b) As many people as possible wear an orange ribbon as a sign of support for creators.
Celebration:
The day ends with parties. Bonfire parties. That means that all around the grid, people have parties.
We’re encouraging every club to hold a Step Up! party. We encourage every musician to play Step UP! events. Everyone on the grid has a part to play. Everyone can take part.
Read more about it here. There are various initiatives against content theft going on this week, but Step Up is the one I choose to support.
