Second Life Fashion from ReadMeri | No more for me

No more for me

Did you know that the concept of ‘dating’ as such in my country, came from the US? It’s one of the good things that made the journey across the Atlantic to the UK, along with some horribly-addictive TV shows and junk food (no, I know, but it tastes great!). Before ‘dating’ we had a horrible no-man’s land of confusion. In years gone by, a young lady might be said to be ‘walking out’ with a young man. And they would literally go for a walk and talk, get to know each other a little (Oh Mr Darcy, I wouldn’t know about things like that, I find myself confused).

By the time I came along, there was no dating, no walking out. The boys were confused too… local boys might ask you to ‘go out with them’ but they didn’t mean they wanted to take you anywhere, except maybe to a dark corner for a fumble.

Thusly, it became an odd kind of love war between young men and women. The young men would go out, armed to the teeth with condoms and bad lines. Young women would go out to have fun and a drink and maybe meet someone nice. But what they wanted were often two separate things. I used to go out with a particular pal on Friday nights into town and we had a pact – we could wear a nice outfit, a nice bra, nice shoes and carry a nice bag, but we must not – ever – wear nice knickers.

Nope, the knickers had to be horrible, 1000 wash greys (which used to be white) with raggy elastic. The kind of underwear you only let your mother see. The kind of underwear you would go to any lengths to conceal, no matter how much you’d had to drink. That was our protection, our contraception, our modesty – right there, our armour against amour.

I really wanted to share Blueberry’s Pizza Jeans with you. A fitted mesh skinny jean with rips and a cool windy belt, which is available at the Blueberry Mainstore right now. You can expect it in all the relevant body mesh sizes – Maitreya, Slink and Belleza. It comes in a wide range of denim colours from which you can choose – or buy the fatpack.

I’m also showing you the Blueberry Leign Bustier which came out as a part of the first Lux Box. New members to the Lux group can apparently purchase previous boxes too, so it’s not too late if you feel you might have missed out. Simply see the group inworld for details.

Here’s a well lit, no shit picture for you (although you can’t see my 1000 wash whites)


And finally, my dancing video so you can check rigging!
