Virtual Layover

As we travel from London to Milan for another fashionably late arrival (who can keep up??) to the next round of SS '09 RTW shows, I thought I'd take you on a little detour. I don't know if you know, but there is a whole other world out there and it is completely freaking me out. Second Life is a virtual universe where people create avatars of themselves, buy real estate, hold down dream jobs, and make real US dollars. I don't fully understand how it works, but it makes me scared for future generations. I don't want to wind up a cog in a virtual system, but if I do you better be sure that I'll be one stylin' sim and I'll definitely be featured on the web pages of Second Life Style Watch, SL's very own street style site a la the Sartorialist or Facehunter.

Please don't let my post inspire you to start spending inordinate amounts of real time on a fake life. Be here now. The real world needs you and your stylin' self!

Word up! I am so with you on living your first life and only real life to the fullest. Second life is a bit creepy and obviously sad . . . These avatars do have their own thing going on. I would LOVE to see how their creators look and dress!
