“After a Fashion” a “Canadian girls’ night out” in Second Life 1

Monday, Feb. 26 marked the first “After a Fashion” excursion in Second Life (SL).

Joining hosts Kate Trgovac (Katicus Sparrow) and me (Paradise Wunderland), were:
Catherine Winters
Joy Boyson
June Li
June Macdonald
Kathryn Lagden
Sonja Andic
Michelle Tampoya and Tamera Kremer were missed

We started with a meet and greet at Crayon's SL headquarters. Then we got down to some serious (and some not-so-serious) business - shopping business that is.

Our first stop was Free Dove - a huge clothing store (more like a SL big-box store) where most of the goodies were free for the taking - the glitch was we didn't know exactly what we were getting until we unpacked. (In SL, just like real life, it's gauche to unpack your stuff in busy public places.)

Our last stop was the gazebo at Garden of Hope, a perfect place for unpacking and checking out our new finds. Kate and Catherine taught us how to unpack. What a blast! Everyone tried on their new clothing (my pics are on the right.) It was like playing 3-D Barbie for grown-ups. What fun!

Unfortunately, most of my new outfits were more skanky than fashion-forward. On the bright side, I didn't spend a penny (oops! I meant Linden dollar). I guess even in SL you get what you pay for. ; )

Thanks everyone for joining us on our first “After a Fashion” adventure. Special shout out to Kate and Catherine for guiding us newbies along. We became more confident and knowledgeable about SL after just one group visit.

Stay tuned for details of our next “After a Fashion” event. We have a couple new members and a few spots left. If you're interested in joining the group, send me an email!
