Adios, Luxe Box
Shopping and cute clothes and fun items in Second Life really do make it for me. It’s the ultimate Barbie, complete with dream house, glam convertible, even Malibu Ken/Kim. Luxe Box made that into this fun surprise social event; I’d get together with friends in the same room or in the Luxe Box group, squeal excitedly when our boxes arrived, and then gush and share pictures about the new outfits we’d put together. Luxe Box was great – it was like Christmas and Margarita night where I walked away each month with tons of cute clothes, shoes, hair, accessories, furniture, and even little pets.
Luxe Box officially announced this past week they were closing up shop after an almost two-year run. I felt like what better way to say goodbye to something that has been such a fun and fulfilling part of my Second Life than by taking a few pictures.
I’m wearing some jeans from Blueberry that were in the September 2016 box. I remember being SO excited that Blueberry was participating that month AND when it turned out to be this fantastic pair I was overjoyed. These were my go-to jeans for a long, long time, and I still wear them quite frequently. One of these days I’ll get some pictures shot that really show them off, beacuse they make my legs and my backside look fantastic. I’ve paired them with a cami from Foxes from the February 2016 box. This cami looks just cute AF with jeans, but I’ve worn it a lot with skirts and, occasionally, with just a pair of undies for some playful boudoir-ish pictures.
The shoes, however, are far and away the most worn item I’ve ever received from a Luxe Box. These wedges from Reign are super cute and I wear them at least twice a week, and since they come in literally dozens of textures they never get boring. For the first few pictures, I’m sitting in a cape wagon from Tarte – I believe this was in the November 2017 Luxe Box, but I’m not 100% certain on that. What I am certain about is it’s a wonderfully romantic spot to curl up with someone special…and if you’ve got more on your mind than curling up, well, Tarte has you covered there too.
It may sound a bit silly, but I’m going to miss Luxe Box so much. This wasn’t just an exciting monthly surprise of lots of cute clothes and such (although that was a big part of it), it was this neat community bound together by sharing our experiences with our common interest. That’s what I’ll miss the most. Adios, Luxe Box. Thanks for two wonderful years, countless outfits, hairs, and housing items, and a little Corgi named Simon.
So let’s not end on a down note – let’s end on one with a little promise for everyone who maybe didn’t participate in Luxe Box. While Luxe Box was going on, designers had to agree they would not sell anything they contributed to Luxe Box. Now that Luxe Box has turned out the lights, ALL of those cute clothes and hairs are fair game to be sold. I think we’re going to see an influx of some really great stuff available for the first time to folks who maybe never tried out Luxe Box, and that’s exciting! I’m happy for folks who maybe never got a chance to wear the best wedges on the grid or some truly magnificent jeans. That is a silver lining I can get behind.
