LFL=Look for Less!

I don’t often blog with descriptions like this in the beginning, but I felt like this post deserved an explanation. I hear from avis all the time that dressing well cost so much money. While there are certain things I feel are worth the investment, such as quality skin, a fat-pack of a great set of pumps, or if it’s me…a dope ass pair of shades, you do not have to break the bank to look fly. You just need a good eye for quality and a little determination to hunt for bargains. Now the GODIVAs and I are champion bargain shoppers. If you read our style cards, you are bound to find at least 2-4 discount items from places like COLLABOR88, The Dressing Room/BLUE, Fashionably Late, Perfect Wardrobe, Fashion Limited, The Fashion Garret and several more events held anywhere from weekly to monthly. We discover events on Flickr, Plurk, and of course in SL through group notices. It’s really not that hard, and even if you don’t find them all, there are plenty of stores that offer amazing gifts to their group members. Take CHANTKARE for example. This month, Applonia Criss has this fantastic tropical floral printed asymmetric mini dress as a group gift! So yea, I paid NOTHING for this dress!!! With an initial investment over 6 months back of 75L, I have been able to get great pieces like this. With prices for CHANTKARE designs ranging from 260L-400L the price to join the group is peanuts and you can get several past gifts on the back wall of her main store. So you regain your investment several times over. Many stores do this so just get out there and find brands you love. The rest of my style info is below. Happy shopping!
