After my first few days in SL it became apparent that I wasn’t in Kansas anymore, so when sent off to buy “one decent pair of shoes” I found myself again the old X3d (now Digit Darkes) and walked right up to her DOROTHY shoes it seemed fortuitous. Realizing that these shoes would not match ANYTHING I owned, I think I made the decision then and there that all future purchases were going to have to MATCH my GOOD SHOES.
The Blingtard Crew I hung out with at the time (they are all dead to me now so I disparage them freely) were horrified by my shoe choice. “What do they GO with?” “Do they have a bling option?” “You could’ve gotten TWO pair of shoes for that price!”
And perhaps this is true. But could I have gotten two pair of shoes this magnificent, this DETAILED, for that price? I think it was my inner fashion diva scratching her way out, that day at X3D. She was saying “Don’t wear ugly clothes, better two have ONE of something good than 20 of something crappy.”
While I’ve since abandoned the rule that everything has to match these shoes, I still get a total delight whenver I put them on. And so would you.
