Rett, respect, and really special

I finally wrestled this pic of Rett's Christmas dress out of her, because she's busy making custom-made, fur-trimmed undies for a client (that no, she won't sell in the store in that version because according to Rett, custom is custom, and exclusive is exclusive).

Must say it looks chilly, though, when she lands on the square in a few skimpy bits of organza and fur (which is not snow-covered and won't be: I moved to the South of France to get away from shovelling the stuff where I used to live, which is quite irrelevant but this is my blog...


Details: fluffy red organza that moves beautifully. Two different tops. Different, and pretty.

Oh the price? Well, normally 400L but I wrestled a 25% discount on it, valid only at Rett's store here at Vent du Sud. So just 300L ("for the next few days only, Ari"). It's out front and impossible to miss, right near the tp point.

Oh, and it's also transferable so it makes a great, great gift (guys, note this...).

While I'm rambling about Rett and respect, I really do respect her. She cheerfully ignores my prodding to make more signs, more close-up photos, do more special offers or sales, offer lots of different colours, and tells me that she want to make her clients happy, whether that means fitting something, changing a detail or a colour, or coming up with a special gift for someone -

- which means a lot of her SL time is spent on making unique, custom items for her (extremely loyal) client base, whatever their shape, size or style. It also means that her dresses are not available in lots of colours ("because this is the colour I wanted for that dress, Ari but I can make you one in blue with a different neckline..."). Unique... is nice.

It works for her. And more power to her. She's happy with her business, and with her SL. Her prices for custom creations, considering the work and care that go into the service she gives, are more than competitive too.

And isn't that what it's all about?

Catch her by sending a notecard (Rett Gentil) if you'd like something completely personal. She'll take the time you need, and make something that will be truly yours.

(And quick plug: don't forget your Vent du sud original Christmas decor, including some really pretty stuff scattered around the square, for free or nearly). How about just 10L and 3 prims for this poinsettia pillar marking the entrance to the skating rink?)
