“I remember having tried even tears with running mascara when I felt sad, or a pink hair when I wanted everyone to see me smiling from the other side of a sim,” — that would be the opening to anything that I always wanted to say to people about fashion in SL.
Today, I have that chance, and I am thinking to myself, “how would you like to be seen by others? Would you like to be the rock star who plays the guitar in your dreams? Or maybe the pin-up girl who shows her long legs, wearing a vintage, classy swimsuit?” I think the only correct answer is, "Yes — you can be any of those, or even all of them at the same time!” (Well, actually, you may not want to try all tendencies at once — LOL!).
I truly believe in being yourself when buying clothing and accessories, or looking through your inventory just as if you were in your wardrobe trying on things you like. (I still have tons of pink socks in my inventory — and even a turkey head! — waiting to be worn when I wake up in the mood to be... maybe Thanksgiving dinner? LOL — who knows!).
And why not? My policy is, “if it’s nice, cool! But if it’s nice and cheap... I must have it!” Fortunately, most of the stores around SL helped me with these addictions. When you stay in SL for almost five years, you learn that seasonal sales exist, and that there are things known as “hunts” that give you unique stuff for free, and that many of the cutest stores still believe in group gifts. OMG! There are so many tips — this space is not enough (yeah — I do have a notecard somewhere with more tips because I love to help people as much as I love bargains *smiles*).
To wrap this up, I just have to say thanks to all of you for the opportunity! I'm open to all kind of questions and suggestions. I know my English is not that good and that many selected designers might be more interesting than me — but I just have to say fashion is for me one of the things that have captured my attention since the day I decided to be creative in this SL, and that is for me like the reason I'm still here today! *winks*.
