When we say a woman looks cheap do we mean that she looks poorly dressed or that she looks like she’d fu$k a guy for a bu$k? Do women run the risk of seeming sexually indiscriminate and financially desperate if they wear inexpensive clothes? Or does a woman only look cheap when she’s spending mere pennies on mini-skirts and tubetops? I’m sure that most of you would agree that a customer at H&M isn’t “cheap looking” if she foregoes the fishnets and purchases instead an inexpensive peasant skirt, even if she does raise that skirt on a first date without being bought so much as a dinner.
SL fashionistas rail against the uber-low-rise jeans that are popular with…erm…with our “tacky trashy trampy” sisters. These jeans don’t bother me. But they also don’t inspire me. I say forget the loooow-rise and go for the full-on exposed-butt look. These are the ultimate in cheap. It’s impossible to tell whether they say “I couldn’t afford to cover all of me,” or “Spank me! Spank me hard and spank me now!” The women of pleisure lean towards the latter interpretation. With alacrity we lean. With joy we bend…. Where was I?
The only respectable way to look cheap in SL is to do it defiantly. Cheap becomes a weapon if you are willing to be scary tacky trashy trampy, like the punks of yore. Of course, while scary turns off the average joe—the type of guy who’d denounce a punk girl for being unemployed as soon as he’d dismiss her for being an easy lay—scary looks sexy to those in the know. And for them, “cheap” is precious.
