In my 1st post ever, I've put together a little something that sums up why as a total Second Life newbie, I have the audacity to make a blog about SL fashions. In the past 2 weeks I've become rapidly obsessed with Second Life due to the "dressing up Barbie" aspect of the world. For a clothes-hoarder attempting to cut back, SL is a great way to indulge my shopaholism on the cheap and experiment with a whole range of looks. In a way this blog is more about keeping a personal record of the different styles I experiment with.
Here's the preteen shape I've made, let's call her Baby C, that has ended up being my default av. I went for a super trendy mermaid tomboy look (haha) using a men's shirt to keep her flat-chested. (Women's clothes with no or little boob shading/shape apparently don't exist in SL.) Unfortunately both the shirt and the vest were non-mod so the back looks terrible. I do wear the shirt alone even though it makes me look like a little dude with long hair.
