I'm loving symbiosis this week. Designers create stuff not only to support their lives and SL habits, but also to make people joyous. I understand just a little of that feeling -- I made a small lame t-shirt once (it said MILF, and it was in honor of mother's day), but when I saw it on someone I felt a strange glow of pride in my gut. "Damn. She's wearing my creation!"
I rarely get this feeling in SL, but designers must get a huge buzz out of it every time they see someone in their wares. This is why I love poking around the shops of new designers and wearing their stuff, much like the jewelry I wore by Bliensen+MaiTai a week ago.

In response to my post, and to Dot Lane's, Plurabelle Laszlo wrote this cute little note on Fashcon:
Dedicated to Achariya Maktoum and Dot Lane - for the first two reviews I ever got - you both made me blush :)
My own buzz comes from wearing totally cute stuff, of course. Dot and I got together to squee over being thanked (see, SL fashion bloggers are fans first and journalistas second), and we took a few pictures of the awesome jewelry. You're gonna be seeing this post in stereo because Miss Dot will be posting about it too (Over here, in fact!).
Dot also teased me about being a drow in gingham. Hey, you never know when you need to infiltrate an early American farm and steal some apple pie!
