You can take a girl out of Jersey, but...

I went to the opening of Glam World (a mall containing Minnu Model Skins and Maitreya and stuff) for about five minutes before I froze and had to flee. How to describe it? It was a big, posh, cement block, beautifully rendered, the modernist's answer to a shopping complex. MMSkins and Maitreya both have group giveaways in honor of the event, and I'm wearing the skin.

I have a secret fondness for modernist cement blocky shopping malls (my Jersey roots are showing). I especially love the spare Japanese touches in Maitreya, and the de facto ginger blossom floral arrangement. Reminds me of Thai hotels.

Purely about clothing: I've been falling in love with Kyoot Army of late, because I love the fact that their clothes look like some satanist librarian commissioned them from Wormtongue to wear to a virgin sacrifice. You know, just my style. I'm also in love with OH! WHAT A NEAT BOUTIQUE, and this is because of the beautifully drawn quality of the fabric (also why I love ~silentsparrow~ so damned much) and the floaty perfection of the prims. Yay, clothes.

See, stick a girl in a mall and all she can talk about is clothing. Not that this is a bad thing.

I battled the lag down there today, I heard Maitreya are giving away free gifts.
So devastated...I couldn't move at all either and everyone was shouting 'I CAN'T MOVE!!'. Duh!!

I knew there was a reason why I liked you so much. Jersey represeeeeenttt. OK, so I may be known as SL's classiest broad but hi, doesn't the 'broad' part of that title give it away? I am born and bred Jersey. I also happen to live one town away from Paramus. If you are true Jersey girl, you know I don't have to say anymore than that!
