Have you ever had a bad haircut? I mean really bad? Nothing that will work itself out in a week or with some styling tricks, but something that will require either an even more drastic haircut to fix, or 6 months until it’s back to where you started? I just did. Sucksalot. I never thought I was this vain. I’m a pretty low maintenance kind of gal, my avatar actually owns way more shoes and makeup than I do. However, I gotta admit, staring at my hair, running my fingers through and having them come up short of where they should, I realized that I just may be. Comfort food would have been my first go to, but I can’t really eat my way through the next six months, so retail therapy is required.
The fastest, most convenient, and cheapest form of retail therapy for me is Second Life, and this weekend did not disappoint. Sales and Specials and Events oh my! I’m drowning in happy, until I reach up to play with my hair that is… but, hands on the keyboard and I’ll make it through this just fine.
I was browsing The Dressing Room’s 4th Birthday event and then a notice came in, Spring Sn@tch Sale. If you are reading this, and if it’s still Monday, stop now and head over to the Sn@tch Mainstore for 50% to 75% off everything except new releases through until Monday April 28th. I’ll wait for you.
Back? Ok good. Sn@tch has an interesting way to price things doesn’t it? Sales aside, unlike other stores where you pick a color, and get all sizes when you buy, at Sn@tch you pick a size and get all colors. See those pants up there, nice aren’t they? Checkered or plaid aren’t usually my thing, but once I saw how my ass looked in the demo, I had to have them. I got 8 colors in the pack for 135L. Expect to be seeing me in them, a lot.
I’ve written about Sn@tch before, not just because of the deals, but it’s actually a fun place to hang out. Shopping aside, if you are the kind of person who prefers to shop in world than the marketplace, this will hit all the high notes, from the VIP lounge to lucky boards, riot vendors to fishing. That’s right, you can fish for an outfit, takes maybe a couple hours and you can catch all the pieces. If you don’t, no problem, the Sn@tch group is a great resource to find people to trade with, or to call everyone down to flash mob the riot vendors. Even just sitting in the store, there is always people around, you are bound to start up a conversation and help each other out by trading missing pieces.
There are other fun details, like a dressing room, a catwalk, even a photostudio, and if you wander the outside, the rest of the mall, you’ll see the theme carries on. That’s where I took that picture above actually, out front of the store. I can spend an entire online session at Sn@tch, no need to go anywhere else, chatting, music, prizes, what else could I need? It’s also great place to tackle my embarrassingly out of control inventory, I can lounge on one of the couches while I wait for my letter to come up or keep an eye out on the riots. That’s actually what I was doing, rummaging around my inventory picking out items to put together for this look, and what better inspiration than these messages behind me?
See the necklace I’m wearing, I got that today at Sn@tch too, when my letter came up on the lucky board. Guess what it’s called? Drops of Vanity. Welcome back Serendipity, I’ve missed you.
