Hi. I should start this bibliography of a post by explaining my name. My user name on SL is Sinontherocks – Sin on the Rocks which is one of my favorite drinks. My name is Absinthe Montenegro (that oh-so-sinful drink). I joined SL after we had to make user names with “resident” at the end, which totally cramps my style! But the show must go on.
I’m very new to SL fashion. In fact, I joined SL 5 months ago in hopes that I’d be able to role-play here. But, since I had trouble understanding SL and were to find great places with good writing, I gravitated to the one thing that I did understand.
It wasn’t all that easy. I started off wearing the trashiest things I could find, and then slowly gravitated toward attire that reflected who I was a person outside of the game. I’ve had trouble with prims – I went my first 3 months walking around not adjusting anything, and wish lashes that were so crooked people couldn’t see my eyes. I didn’t know what a hair base was until 30 days, and I just now realized that there are hair bases that are specific for certain kinds of up-dos. Go figure. I hated prim nails and wore them flexed off my fingers, my feet didn’t match until about 4 months. I can cross my heart and hope to die in saying that this is my first avatar and only avatar — I’ve had some tragic/funny moments I’m going to share in my blog.
Let’s just say it’s been quite a journey. I will say that I’m a quick learner, I’m enthusiastic and absolutely thrilled to be involved in this form of creativity. I had always wanted to live in New York and be a fashion model, or design clothes. Instead of hung up my very brief amateur modeling career for one in the medical field. I wouldn’t have it any other way. But! SL has given me the opportunity to have the best of both worlds. :) yay.
This is my first style. I usually try to buy clothing that doesn’t require a lot of prim adjustment, but the boyfriend jacket from So Many Styles, and the Romper Dress (Coral) from LaViere definitely needed a bit of man handling to look proper. Nonetheless I enjoyed frolicking around SL in it, and having people ask me where my outfit was from. Don’t you love that?
I’ll likely not be posting this much text with this fashion blog — it’s only one in a billion. But, I figured that if I’m going to style myself up daily with nowhere special to go, I might as well post about it. So enjoy. And thanks to all who’ve helped and who are still helping me find my way through all this modeling mayhem. <33
