Lifestyles, styles and lives...

What is lifestyle? A person's way of living as expressed in his or her activities, interests, and opinions. It reflects our attitudes, values or the way we see the world. It is the sum of our patterns of social relationships, consumption, entertainment, and dress... In short lifestyle constitutes the mode of living of an individual... And if that mode is blessed with stylishness, panache, elegance and good taste... then what more can one ask for!

"Guys and Dolls"
With all the bells and whistles we are used to in women's fashion, there is a trend in men's fashion that brings us all down to earth with a bang: shredded and spoiled clothes destroyed with acid, blood, war, manual labor. They all have a story and style, and yet remain a bit on the wild side. Label it it protest, dangerous, steampunk, neko, grunge or warrior... They reflect incredible skill and imagination. A la mode? Yes! Depressing, yes. Wearable, definitely!

Gals are more on the safe and glamorous side. Feathers, furs on dresses, on pulls, on ponchos and... on the head. And accessories like handbags, shoes and belts… will turn many heads. One last note: Leather leather everywhere... Hopefully faux and no animal dead!

Being socially aware is something we cannot escape even in Second Life. "Camp Darfur", built on Better Word is an effort to connect people to a social crisis in the real world. It is an interactive awareness exhibit that brings attention to the ongoing genocide in Darfur, Sudan. Visit also the sad "Bagdat Streets". Then stroll through the Gardens of Hope in order to ease the pain. If you possibly can. Better World 54, 212, 21
