Her capsule collection was launched in collaboration with Best of Second Life and has received acclaim and rave reviews across the grid.
“I totally ‘get it’ why women and men around the globe love the creative and fashion platform of Second Life and other virtual worlds. My team has worked hard to replicate my RL designs so that they look as good or even better than the real thing.
I hope you enjoy them and look forward to seeing and meeting my new ‘ SL family’ of fashionistas.”

Fifth Prize -an item of choice from Dulce Secrets

Sixth Prize – an item of choice from a piece of candy

Details which don’t count for much!

How many times have you seen a cute tabletop decoration that would look perfect on your coffee table, except for the fact that the prim count is so high, that you would have to get rid of all your furniture to rez it!
Less Is More has solved this decor dilemma by offering low prim, detailed sculpted decorations to give your home that finished look.

Decorations include scripted candlesticks and floral vase arrangements, bottles, sushi food trays, lamps and even a sand changing table top zen garden. No item is over 5 prims!
