Acha has been an icon in our fashion world, and has done so with a warm heart and generous spirit. She’s shared herself with us, without any boundaries between her physical and virtual self. I will miss her unique and stunning sense of style, and her elegant writing, and just . . . seeing her around on the feeds. <3
Acha and I weren’t close friends, but she’s still played a major influence in my SLife. Her blog has inspired me and introduced me to awesome new-to-me stores. She encouraged me when I first started blogging. She encouraged me when I first started creating. She wrote copy for my store when I was first starting out, and her generous words inspired me to work harder and be better, to try and live up to her elegant descriptions. By including me as a tiny part of her blog in various Not Me posts, she gave me a sense of being part of the greater community. By featuring early Vanitas Vesture on her blog, she made me feel like I was “somebody” in my own small way.
