How to Shop with Your Girlfriend

Lying here, supervising as my girlfriend scurries about the Fi*Fridays event of the week, picking out her favorite must-haves for the week, my mind slips into reality. Tensions have been high lately and stress has been lurking right around the corner just waiting for the best possible moment to spring into action, but I may have stalled it awhile longer. Family, while annoying at times for one in their young adult life, can often times be the one thing you need. I’m thankful to have had them around today to ease my mind. I received some of the best advice from one of my cousins. She said, “Don’t ever let someone discourage you from doing what you love to do.” She looked me dead in the eye and made sure I knew that she was serious. I understand that many are knocked down everyday by the unsupportive, that all they needed was that one person to say “Go for it!” and truly, truly mean it. Not just the generic pat on the back, saying you can do whatever you put your mind to. No, you need someone who sees your interest and believes in you. I found that support today and it feels so comforting to know that there is someone I can count on when I just might need it.

Ok, enough deep thought for today. Check out some new ink, accessories and threads from Reckless, Atooly and LEVENCHY!

You Make It Real

I’m sure many of you Swagsters are male or play male avatars in-world, right? Okay, then most of you will know that too many of the fashion events around the grid lack male items. The girls get all the goods and what about us? Left out in the cold with maybe a cap and a good pair of jeans? Pfft! Events such as Boys of Summer, which ends today, do a fantastic job at promoting those designers who create mens and unisex clothing. Male avatars with less than 50k items in their inventory salute you! Having said all this, I don’t want to completely kick the female fashion-filled events to the curb.

SL Fashion Week, for instance, is a great setup and another great way to discover different designers and swag to buy for your girlfriends. So as a sponsor of SwaggedOut, how is an event such as this heavily girly one best represented on a predominantly male fashion blog? With my shopaholic girlfriend at my side, of course. The good sport took her time shashaying around SLFW, buying up her favorites from Atooly, Pink Acid and others, and then posed with me for a good 30 minutes while I messed about with windlight settings for a photo. Definitely a trooper!

And get over to XIAJ! The sim is an amazing trip through a grungy subway station, hopping from hidden door to hidden door for each department. Ladies, hop on your man’s back if you don’t want to mess up your pretty manicured toes because you’ll be able to find clothes, shoes and accessories for you here, as well!
