First Impressions

…it would be interesting to find out what goes on in that moment when someone looks at you and draws all sorts of conclusions. –Malcolm Gladwell

First Impressions

What’s the first impression you want to give? The thing about our avatars is that they are aspirational—the representation of the impression we want others to have. Do we want to be glamorous and flamboyant, down-to-earth and folksy, standoffish and sleek, elegant and friendly? I aim for the latter. Elegance is always my goal. This latest dress from AvaGardner Kungler makes that easy with the simple sleeveless sheath ending in a sleek skirt with kick pleats (which I find so ingeniously done here—two separate prim attachments). A thin red leather belt (the dress comes with three choices) punctuates the look with color as do my sexy shoes from Rosie Lavochkin.

First Impressions

I picked up this skin by Miah McAuley at the Dressing Room Blue. I was surprised at its sophistication, to be honest. Miah has a lot of win in her work from the nicely shaped eyebrows to the luscious lips and subtle shading across the skin. A simple sophisticated bob from boo Nakamura is really all I need to give a good impression.

You never get a second chance to make a first impression.
