Here’s a short list of my “best of SL fashion and beauty” for 2021. I am deciding to celebrate the things I love as opposed to lament the things I wish would die a rapid death. That’s because what I realized (finally?) is that although technology changes in SL, the inventory is basically the same.
The joy for me will always be styling. It’s a great means of stress relief and creative time for me personally. So here are a few things I particularly enjoyed in SL in 2021.
- LeLutka EvoX. Despite my initial concerns with EvoX, the LeLutka platform is tried and true. Unlike other beauty brands in SL, LeLutka has been consistent and present in almost the entire time I have played (they started as Minnu Model Skins by the avatar Minnu Palen). They operate almost like a well-managed RL brand that clearly cares about contributions and customers. As close as you can get in SL, anyway. And, despite losing my Korina head a few “evolutions” ago, I now enjoy wearing many different EvoX heads. My current fave is Inez.
- Speaking of EvoX, I particularly enjoyed 2021 BoM skins from brands including Eudora Beauty, Not Found, Insol, and long-time favorite, The Skinnery.
- Another brand that has stood the test of time is (Yummy). Almost 100% of my current favorite accessories come from (Yummy) and unlike most other SL “jewelers,” (Yummy) designs everything for multiple bodies. By the way, I still love styling with ancient brands like Paper Couture and Muse, which is why….
- Shopping my own stash of inventory is the real winner of best of 2021. I am so glad I have such a rich assortment of older inventory. Newer doesn’t always mean better. And since new items that suit me are few and far between, I love the hunt through old items to find something put away but not forgotten.
- Oh and glad that more brands are making inventory for Maitreya Petite (and Legacy Perky)!
Happiest New Year to you and yours!
