I enjoy my bag collection IRL and I enjoy my collection in Second Life too. In fact, I enjoy bags so much, I have trouble not regularly purchasing new ones constantly. I mean, at this very moment I am deciding between two sizes of the new Dolce & Gabbana Devotion bag before I buy it (maybe…). It’s an investment (I tell myself). I probably shouldn’t.
Handbags in Second Life
In Second Life though, you often see the digital equivalents of your favorite RL labels. Personally I don’t mind “inspired by” mesh when it’s well done (David Heather is one such brand that does it well IMO) – but I do not care for the flat out copies where they change like, one letter of a logo. You hear me, Rendi and Timmy Choo?
I usually favor clutches (in both lives) for my looks – and thankfully, most creators include appropriate bento poses with their handbags these days. If you’re paying for a bag in Second Life and it doesn’t have a good pose with it – don’t bother. This new bag is a also a well-done RL number. I found it expensive for just one color but it does come with a simple bento AO that you can also use for still shots like these. I prefer SL bags that have the appropriate poses embedded but this works fine for my purposes.
Other Items of Special Note
A few last things to mention about what I’m wearing: First my skin applier is new and was such a good price (comes with makeups!) that I purchased multiple tones. Body appliers – I later learned – are more expensive than the actual face appliers. Secondly, my dress comes in a host of tropical colours but it leaves one nipple just barely exposed. YMMW if that’s the look you’re going for. In terms of accessories, I LOVE my earrings and heels. The earrings are just stunning honestly – and my heels, they are YEARS old but FINALLY updated to the Maitreya body and they are a perfect stacked silhouette!
