Preface: I love glasses, especially big black glasses, both in RL and in SL. I like thick black frames and dark dark lenses so when I see a pair of glasses that correspond to these criteria, it is very hard for me not to purchase said item.
At the moment I am living on a budget, both RL and SL, the shitty economy is not helping me either, so I have to carefully think about what I spend on, in either world. I am not saying I am dirt poor but I want to be more considerate if I can.
So, last night after reading a blogpost I follow a teleport and go to this store. It’s a store I don’t think I have been to before, I look around and on a counter I see a pair of sunglasses. They have my name written on it. They cost 175L. It’s not much but it’s not little for me either these days. I try to distract myself, convincing myself not to get them, after all they don’t even have a demo, what if they are not good? I hate it when designers don’t put out demos for sunglasses…
After a lot of walking back and forth I do decide to get them, after all it’s all 3 shades in the pack!
So I wear them and to my great disappointment i get this that I am showing here below:
See? The thing is that I spent money that I don’t have for this, and what really irked me is that no later than a couple of weeks ago I bought some sunglasses for half the price (90L to be exact), that are sculpted AND have a hud that lets you change texture of frame and lenses. Such glasses are shown here below:
Is it me? Am I too naive? Or was I wrong expecting something better than this? I could have done something like this myself, and it would have cost me 20L .
Sometimes SL is so disappointing…
