I should actually say “how the 1% lives,” but the title is a better known cliche. There is no denying SL is aspirational. We get into SL to live the life we can’t have or afford in real life. For some of that, that means being thinner, better looking, more fashionable (I know it’s true for me). For some it means owning the big sailboat, having the ginormous house, or running the big charity event. (*sigh*)
There is no doubt the better half lives pretty well in SL. We have big beautiful grand houses, beach cottages on prime real estate, sailboats, scads of shoes, and even designer kittens. How can we not like this second life? I am wearing an outfit from Salah Axel that only wealthy beautiful ladies could pull off—a long legged outfit with a sheer cropped pullover and a teensy scarf tied around the middle and the neck. I love the trousers with the wide legs, how she has engineered the top to have a graduated hem, and how she layers while showing off my great shape. See, in SL I also have a smokin’ bod from, theoretically, great trainers but in all honesty, really effective sliders.
My bod and face are made even more smokin by Sissy Pessoa’s newest line of skins. I appreciated that she included many brow shades and beautiful makeups. I thought this was a clear choice for a beautiful, sophisticated woman. Also perfect is Kavar Cleanslate’s new mesh hair—a side ponytail that does not cut into me when I move. I love it!
Finally, all the photos were taken in Cory Edo’s newest skybox, which she is offering at her store. With a built in nighttime setting (dark skies, glowing uplights around the water feature, underneath lighting on the stairs), this is a moderated version of perhaps a Julian Shulman scene. All she’s missing is the nighttime lights of LA.
I have about concluded that wealth is a state of mind, and that anyone can acquire a wealthy state of mind by thinking rich thoughts. ~ Andrew Young
