Americana

This round of Collabor88 is pretty interesting, the theme is New Americana. I am in the mood for some patriotic things, so I picked up the Lana Romper in this lovely red, white, and blue pattern. I also got the matching Sage Lacey Jacket; I’ll find a reason to wear this a lot. Both are from The Secret Store. I also found some adorable patio chairs and matching parasol from Soy for my sim. I even found a classic Coca-Cola sign to pose in front of, and you can’t get much more American than this!

I’m also wearing NEW LASHES from FateLashes in this post. I wanted to do a close-up picture, but just watch the video on youtube, it’s everything you need to know. I love these lashes, they are well worth the money. I especially love that I can fit one side, then use the HUD to mirror it on the other side so I don’t have to fit it twice! L-O-V-E.

Have you heard of Luxe Box? There are a few hours left to join Luxe Box, a new monthly subscription service in SL. The price for this month is $1,000L, but apparently that price will go higher, maybe even double or triple the following months. I have subscribed to many subscription boxes in RL, mostly for beauty products. I prefer the boxes with previews, and so I can choose to buy it if I like the products on offer. I tend to unsubscribe from boxes without previews, since the products end up too random and not my style. Which is why I haven’t joined Luxe Box but I still have a few hours to decide! My friends tell me that the first month, since they’re still in the promotion phase, lots of designers will give out fatpacks. Fatpacks of what, though?

The idea is intriguing, but I think it is deliberate that the items are not previewed. You can’t blame the designers for wanting to know exactly how much they will make for their effort before choosing to send out 1 item or a fatpack. It’s easy to do the math and figure out how much money each brand will earn for the month. Maybe I’m too logical, and the reason is something more simple like, they think SLer’s enjoy surprises. Do we? Will you pay money to get random surprises or are you more willing to buy a box with previews? Let me know in the comments!

What I’m Wearing:

Truth Hair – Coco
The Secret Store – Lana Romper (Coral); Sage Lacey Jacket (Chalk)

  1. I subscribed to the luxe box because I am a fan of several of the creators that were creating content for it. I wasn’t necessarily wowed by everything but I do feel like I got my money’s worth. And it did convince me to go check out a main store or two of creators I wasn’t entirely familiar with.

    That said, I’m not the type of buyer that must have absolutely everything a favorite creator makes so I’ll be assessing future costs of these boxes. I love fatpacks but like you said, fatpacks of what?
