Kingston’s Style Diary


GIA Style Card // Diva on a Dime

Complete look: L$95. Thanks to the plethora of high quality designer freebies and cheapies out there, you don’t have to be the SL equivalent of Elizabeth Taylor to look good. Update group and in-store freebies, hunts, discerning newbie areas and store sales can hold all the style elements that a frugal fashionista may need to stock her wardrobe.

Movements like the hugely popular Fifty Linden Fridays coordinated by OMGWTF Barbecue, have further established support for affordable, quality products.

Thank you to all the designers who contribute to Fifty Linden Fridays, the Gnubie Store, hunts, sales and who offer regular update group gifts!

“No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main.”

It has been so heartwarming to see the Second Life community come together for a charitable cause once more – this time in support of our brothers and sisters in Haiti who have very recently been impacted by disastrous earthquakes.

Hitting the Beach: Day 2 of 4 – California Sun

On day two of our beach bunny road trip, Strawberry and I wanted to hit the beach in all the vintage glory of 1960s Brigitte Bardot. Before heading to the beach, we visited our favourite shops offering vintage-style products.

All dolled up, we were ready to strut along the boardwalk, scoping out the surfers and bopping to the surf pop tunes in our heads.

Day 1: The Tide is High
Day 3: Weapon of Choice
Day 4: Montego Bay
