Confessions of a Second Life 'Clothes Whore'

I’ll admit it - I’m a Second Life clothes whore. I love seeing an outfit in real life and thinking 'I bet I can put that look together in Second Life'. I have about 17K items in my inventory after a major cleaning and the majority is in fact clothing. If there is a addiction support group in world with a 12 step program I should be attending the meetings? Can you send me a LM and a schedule?

Also, I just recently purchased a mesh body and as a result am now putting together some new outfits and saving them in, you guessed it, Outfits. I noticed the number of saved Outfits I have is now in excess of 250!

I'm just curious of how many saved Outfits do some of you other self confessed clothes whores have?

When your inventory reaches 50,000 + ..THEN you can worry! Yours is virtually empty! You know what I would do? GO SHOPPING!!! lol! I'm actually going through my inventory and trying to do a clean out as well. Getting rid of all the old, outdated stuff. I may be down in your range if I can ever get it done! :matte-motes-big-grin-wink:

A good friend of mine from the old days only used to bother sorting her inventory when she got to 100,000 items.

I think they were mainly shoes, because whenever I bumped into her she didn't seem to have many clothes on.

[i, on the other hand, number my Outfits in almost double figures.]

/me makes a serious face. "I heard of a 12 step program for those that spend a great deal of time an money on their wardrobe. However...it didn't work very well as the meeting usually ended up becoming a shopping expedition to the latest fair."...grins..

Having been called on by the session moderator /me [..walks up the membership aisle in her green and black form hugging knit dress, her black back-seamed silk stockings ending in a pair of strappy high heels clicking promently as she moves] - Removing her black evening hat, she looks over the assembled membership and in a sobbing voice recites:

"Hello, My name is KarenMichelle and I'm " as her voice breaks through a sob and her eyes look out defiantly "..I'm a Clothes Whore!"

KarenMichelle looks down in apparent shame and then looks up the aisle towards where Betty is sitting and continues...

"Yes!  I buy too much too often and have only just started to try to stop...."

Standing up tall she continues...

"But in my defense I have organized my 70K inventory so I can find any look I need to.." pausing she rethinks her words and begins again "..that I want to have for any occasion."

Smiling she ends with "Here at least I'm among kindred spirits and maybe, just maybe together we can control our impulses....."

I hate shopping!

These days, the only way I'll wear something new is if you give it to me. Here's a DQ Darwin creation...

The ones of her actually falling would sell for much higher prices.

Would you like to borrow a sniper rifle to shoot her fingers off?

Sure, I could use some help. I'm trying to caulk a crack in the lighthouse, but I can't reach the caulk gun.

Slide it over towards me?
