one more thing before you go…

DeuxLooks - one more thing before you go
classic Chanel double flap remade for Second Life

I am guessing most of you have seen the news that one of Second Life’s most prolific and gifted creators is closing up shop. It’s true, Sanya Bilavio, creative force behind Vive Nine, Fiore and Ryvolter brands, is hanging up her store shingle. To commemorate a veritable avalanche of fashionable contributions to this platform, there is a massive closing sale until July 2. Then it will all be gone forever.

I will be away all this coming week so I made sure to pick up fatpacks of all my favorite bags and coats that I didn’t already have. And, I made sure to commemorate some of my most worn, most blogged and deeply cherished items I have collected over the years…like these culottes, which I will forever heart.

DeuxLooks - made to last
these culotte trousers are at least a decade old

So with great respect, here’s a look back at some of my favorite styles from Vive Nine over the years. Sadly, some of these items aren’t available anymore (like the aforementioned trousers – and some of my favorite skirts), but I must insist that you visit before everything else goes “poof.” I will greatly miss this brand (mostly for its almost perfect SL renditions of my favorite RL handbags) and I’m so glad I got to be a Vive Nine bag lady from the very beginning.

Best wishes, Sanya! You made my SL so much better <3
