“I love new clothes. If everyone could just wear new clothes everyday, I reckon depression wouldn’t exist anymore.”
― Sophie Kinsella, Confessions of a Shopaholic
Hello, I am Emerald Nouvelle-LeBlanc, Em to my friends, and I am an unapologetic, unrepentant, shopaholic in the Second Life® virtual world. Counting my first avatar, Annie Nouvelle-LeBlanc, I will soon reach my thirteen year milestone as a Second Life resident (on August 28, 2019).
I’ve done a lot of things in SL including singing, photography, art, design and building, but the thing I confess to loving most is SHOPPING. This is peculiar because I’m not much of a shopper in real life. My first world wardrobe would best be described as “comfy”. But in SL, I turn into a rabid fashionista!
As a result, I have a LOT, I mean a TON of clothing, shoes, makeup, accessories, hair…Oh, Em, Gee the hair! I have purchases still in boxes that I’ve never opened going back several years. Gulp!
I told myself, “Em, STOP shopping until you go through everything and organize your inventory”. Who am I kidding? I am addicted to reading the listings on FabFree, Hello Tuesday, Fifty Linden Fridays, Uber and Collabor88. I read through the daily posts on Seraphim. like the shopping addict I am. When my budget runs low, I go after the group and event gifts, freebies, cheapies and the hunts!! And we won’t even talk about Gachas….
Excessories is a blog about my inventory. I will do my best to explain what I’m wearing and where it came from, but there may be items listed that are no longer available in-world on the marketplace.
My friend, Mellwyn, who has blogged with me before, jumped up and down when I told her I was starting this up and said she wanted to join in the fun. So, you’ll get to peek into her closet, too! I’ll let her tell you more in an upcoming post.
So now I take a deep breath, put on a hardhat and open my closet door…
