Thrifting, Anyone?

Thrifting, Anyone?

I’m outside the Thrift Store at Missing Mile and I did find a couple things I couldn’t live without! I love thrifting…..there’s nothing more fun than entering a thrift store and hoping to find that one thing that is perfect! I collect a few things, so I’m always on the lookout for them, but there’s no telling what treasures might be in the thrift shop at each visit. It saddens me that we live in a disposable world, where everything is made to throw out and buy new…..I don’t want any part of the global consumerism that is so common now. I prefer to buy used…..the search is the fun part, it’s too convenient to go to Walmart and buy everything new, only to line the Walton family’s pockets with even more money that they don’t need. I know there is a stigma about buying used……only poor people do that or who wants someone else’s garbage….but thrifting is now a thing that’s kind of cool to do. I have friends that thrift all the time, travelling to smaller towns out in the country to find different things! It’s a great way to see some country, maybe meet new people, slow life down a bit, and embrace the theory that one mans garbage is another mans treasure!!

The Piper Boots from Slipper Originals is a recent release that I found hidden deep down in my ~ahem~ rather large inventory! They’re SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh body compatible and the fatpack has fourteen colours, and a bunch of areas to customize! You might want to have someone help you with the zipper at the back! 🙂

The Aria Crop Tank from {MYNX} is one of those tops that looks great with anything, and thankfully Second Life doesn’t have the weather extremes that real life does! I’d freeze my you-know-whats off if I wore this outside in real life! But anyway, these tops are fitted for the classic avatars plus the SLink, TMP, Belleza, and Maitreya mesh bodies. The tops come in packs of two, a solid and a floral print in each colour…this is the olive.

When I’m showing this much skin I just can’t resist covering it with a great tattoo! This is the Circles Tattoo from Pimp My Sh!t and I love this one. It’s compatible with classic avatars and also Omega and TMP mesh bodies. Also, it has three ink tones included, I just about always wear the medium tone.

I’m wearing the Ribbed Knit Leggings from Simply Sage. They’re Omega, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh body compatible only.

I love this hair! It’s one of the newest releases from Argrace! The ad for the SHIROGANE hair has a man wearing it….but I love men’s hair and couldn’t resist…it’s going to be one of my go-to hair.

I’ve changed up my skin a bit for this one! I’m wearing the Everly Omega applier in honey tone from Sinful Curves! I’m wearing the Alex mesh head from Logo, the Lara mesh body and feet from Maitreya, and the casual hands from SLink.

I’m using a couple poses from -slouch-poses, and there’s still a glimmer of hope in me that this pose maker will come back to Second Life! So unfortunately, these are no longer available!

I love the [WoS]Missing Mile sim! It’s got that, ‘down on my luck’ feel to it and it has all kinds of grungy goodness!
