SL Fashion Friday Blog: Cozy Winter Style & Decor from Marta Spada


Cajsa Lilliehook covers the best in virtual world screenshot art and digital painting

Marta Spada’s blog I Got It makes me happy. Her post Feels Intentional some of my favorite things in Second Life — clothes. Seriously bloggers! Unless you’re in the Southern Hemisphere, it’s winter. Put some clothes on. I love her outfit, though there is something illogical about a  long-sleeved, mock-turtle-neck sweater that’s cropped so your tummy gets to freeze. I also love that she pairs her fashion pic with some decor. Now that is right for the season.

I love this look and Marta identified all the elements, though she only gave links to her sponsors. So some of the most arresting elements like her sunglasses, sneakers, and earring required some fairly easy hunting.  It’s a common practice and many think it’s only fair since they gave items and the others did not. Some bloggers go so far as to not even identify the elements that were not from sponsors. 

For me, though, it’s a question of who your audience is and who you are blogging for. If you’re blogging for designers, then only giving links to sponsors makes sense, but if you’re blogging for your readers, it makes no sense to leave them hunting for stores. So when it comes to this, ask who you’re doing it for. 

I Got It is a great blog. It’s very visual with huge pictures. It’s not filled with distracting elements. The About section is well-done with information on her old blog and the reason why she is doing a new blog from scratch. She organizes her sponsors by what part of the styling they focus on. 

I like her style. She has plenty of skimpy outfits, but she pairs the with elements that make them a bit more modest, things like tights, jackets, and blouses. I like that she puts outfits together with a mix of old and new. Shopping in your closet is the sign of a first-class fashionista.
