Back in Time
And a fun time was had by all.
A friend of mine, amazingly older than I, has returned to Second Life after a fairly long hiatus. Needless to say her wardrobe and look needed some revamping. She did a little looking today, at places she remembered. Shoes and hair were the biggest needs and she didn't find what she was looking for. With $225 lindens in her bank account, pennies were at a premium but along the way she saw a sign advertising The Free Dove.
Now if you are really really OLD, you remember Free Dove. Way before my time folks were shopping there for free. The entry notecard says seven years -- that is ancient in SL time. She mentioned her memories and I was up for an adventure. It had been decades since I visited (well relative decades anyway). I challenged her to make a totally Free Dove outfit -- and she did very very well.
The place hasn't changed much. Lag was still in evidence even though there weren't that many folks. There were some items from 2006 (they had dates) and some that were passed their prime when I popped out of the pod. Amongst those however there were some really really nice things. Here are her picks.
