The High King Lives

Virtual Friday: Trendy Shops in SecondLife August 17, 2012

Hello friends :). I’m taking a break from visiting real world replicas in Secondlife. I’m sure I’ll revisit that but before I take you in a new direction I’d like to show you some great shops. Way back when, I shared that my avatar was once an adult but I changed her to a little girl. My main reason was modesty. It is hard to dress an adult avatar modestly.

Also I was tired of guys trying to talk to me. All of the child avatars are actually adults in real life. SecondLife doesn’t allow kids to come on. Still there is a big rule on how child avatars are treated and how they are portrayed. So it is a much safer virtual world for the child-like avatar. Am I living my second child hood? Maybe…..I already do that in the real world pretty well. Also I don’t have a daughter to dress up so instead I dress up my avatar. Even if I did have a daughter I still think I would keep my avatar because I enjoy exploring the virtual world and I love to shop.

Shopping in SecondLife is very different than real life. First off 1000 lindens is worth $4USD. Lindens are the money used in SecondLife. Secondlife has it’s own real economy. People have real virtual jobs. I’ve never had a virtual job but I spend very little on my virtual hobby. My hubby doesn’t mind. Virtual shopping satisfies my shopping urge and keeps me from spending out in the real world. My avatar dresses better than me for sure. Iย  couldn’t afford those clothes in the real world and it’s much more time consuming in real life lol.ย  Also I love taking beautiful pictures. It’s so easy to take gorgeous pictures in Secondlife. There are some really creative & beautiful sims out there. I like to have the perfect outfit for my pics.

Moving on….so today I’m going to share some of my favorite shops. You can shop in-world or you can shop on the website (SecondLife marketplace). I have several clothes to model so make sure you can see pics. Also there are a few sneak peak pics of places we will be visiting in a couple of weeks ;). The links to visit these shops will be under their names. Of course you have to have a SecondLife account to go to these places.

Inner Peace

Visit Sassafras (73, 112, 24)

I was wearing the shirt wrong in the above pic. Below is the way the outfit is supposed to look. By the way, this is now my favorite store. I just wish I could afford everything in it lol.

Note: I got the doll from Larnia. We will see that shop shortly. Here is another great outfit from Inner Peace.

Baby Pie

I like to go to the marketplace for this store. I’ve visited it only a couple of time inworld.

I have several outfits from Baby Pie. They are very cute. Most of these outfits are only 50L (remember these are Lindens not dollars!). Their newer items will be 150L like most stores but just wait until the next season and they will be marked down. I just found out that the clothes I bought in the summer are already 5L to 25L! I really should’ve waited to buy. What a reduction!

BabyPie Iris outfit

BabyPie Valentine’s Outfit

BabyPie Untangled Outfit ~ you may remember this one. I believe I wore it when I visited the storybook land of “Where the Wild Things Are”.ย  I’m supposed to be Rapunzel from “Tangled”.

Baby Dolls Boutique~ this store if very similar to BabyPie . I only have one outfit from them. I really liked the inworld store. It had a very girly atmosphere. Everything sparkled :).

Visit Starlight Starbright (128, 109, 22)

Here is my one outfit: Alice in Wonderland. I do plan on visiting this store again.

Larnia~ I LOVE this place. They have some of the best priced and gorgeous princess gowns. I will be wearing some of their dresses in my upcoming adventures. Also I found my “Bebe” dolly right next to their store.

Visit Aquamarine Island (146, 179, 22)

Camp Cutie fall/winter outfit~ sorry the pic is so dark

Red Princess Dress ~ You will see more of this beauty later. It was perfect for pictures!

Green Evening Gown~ Guess where I am ๐Ÿ˜‰

Vicarious Vitae ~ Had a lot of cheap but cute clothes.

Visit Somersley Shore (152, 156, 30)

I found a lovely Dorothy Costume here. Hmmmm…that makes me wonder if there’s an Oz replica in SL. I’ll have to look into that…

I rarely buy jewelry in SL but I do have a few pieces. I bought them at the marketplace online at two stores. My favorite is Undefined Lilies and I have visited their store inworld as well. The other was DooDads. I only like their jewelry.

Undefined Lilies – this place is so classy.

Visit Imogen (128, 146, 30)

My lovely nesting doll necklace called “Miss Matron’s Secret”

DooDads Jewelry

Note: When shopping in the marketplace it is always cheaper to pay with Lindens than with paypal or credit card. You canย  exchange Lindens for cash a lot cheaper inworld than in the marketplace.

Ice Cream Sundae Jewelry~ these are very child like.

Camera Necklace ~ great for me since I’m always a tourist ๐Ÿ™‚ The outfit is from Inner Peace.

Darling Bear Earrings

Butterfly Jewelry

Aura’s ~ I didn’t get to shop here because I didn’t want to spend so much. But they had some really great clothes. I’ll have to save up ๐Ÿ™‚ They had a good bit of costumes and ball gowns.

Visit Saone (176, 223, 54)

Slumberland~ has some nifty furniture. I’ve yet to buy anything but I got a great Hello Kitty table as a freebie. It’s pictured at the beginning of my post. I’m having tea with dolly at it lol.

Visit Slumber Land (132, 119, 49)

Lastly, another hint of things to come ;). Oh, and the dress came from Inner Peace.

Well, I’m excited about all the nifty places we will be exploring in the weeks to come.

God bless & remember the High King lives! ~Amber Dover
