PORT OF LONG BEACH, 7 Aug — Thanks to everyone for spending time at Gallery Xue / LBC on Saturday. Since everybody seems gaga over Jackie Graves cool clothes, I just thought I’d chime in and say that I love her stuff too, but unlike you wannabe military brats, I like her FUN clothes! My favorite is Graves’ “Fever” which I used to wear all the time last year when I opened my first art gallery, Gallery Xue / Taipei. Also, crazy but true, before I found my calling as a virtual art gallery director running a global empire of galleries from the laptop on my bed in my dorm room at King’s College London, I had my dubious experience as a magazine editor with “Avatars Illustrated.” You might recall I, hahaha, put myself on the cover of the ONE issue we ever managed to publish of that, and, believe it or not, my swimsuit was partly by Graves.

When I wear Graves’ Fever, I usually wear platform sandals and socks from Onyx LeShelle (Maitreya Gold / Moxie) On the swimsuit cover the bottoms I’m wearing are sort of a combination of the Graves G88 bottoms and a giant belt from Monica Benelli. You can see full outfit credits in the comments of the swimsuit page:

Last thing, I’ve gotta call someone out!

Sorry I don’t post more on this blog, sorry “Virtual Salon,” guys, but sometimes it just seems like a Senior Avatar’s Rest Home! This place needs more young blood! So WHEN is Elford gonna finally get up off his freakin butt and post something here already??? Sheesh! It sucks being the only Under-2 avatar in this dump! 😛

    1. How many Elfords can there be? Tell the former executive to dust off his polyester suit and come write something that avatars born after 2010 can actually relate to!!
