The Knitting Circle Rummage Sale (non mesh)

Wandering around I came across a small market set up.  This is what the LM says and it’s exactly what you get “Discount and retired items from your favorite Knitting Circle stores. Gacha doubles and other random treasures can also be found at this group rummage sale.” Some great bargains to be had.

First up a very handy shrug (Riddle).  Again I chose the safe brown but at 25Lds a colour you can get as many as you like at that bargain price.

Ana is the name of the top and PaperDoll is the name of the shop.  I chose the cream which is pretty but hasn’t photographed as well as either the pool (blue) or the Mauve would have.  Doesn’t matter because it only looks pale in this photo in SL it’s lovely lacy and creamy.  At 25Lds I’m grabbing the lot.

Grixdale Vintage Frock is the name of this item. More top than Frock.  A sweet creamy full skirted top with lovely satin/ribbon edging and prim bows.  This shop is called Aura.

OK summing up this market its stuffed with BARGAINS and as far as I can tell all NON MESH ones at that. Because as I always say not everyone can handle mesh and maybe even doesn’t want to. We all need non mesh clothes for those times when our comps are struggling to cope with SL and this is the place.  Kicking myself for the library fines because I can see at least 3 dresses which are soooo sweet!! and so cheap. In a relatively small area they have everything you need from hair, skin, shoes and clothes and all at great prices.

List of shops here. Atomic, Pink Fuel, Ploom, Riddle, Aura,Paperdoll.

Culture Shock

The first annual Culture Shock event began on the first of this month and is absolutely huge. There is a massive amount of stores involved all of them showcasing their fantastic gear including exclusive items for the event and 50-100% of the profits from these items will go to the Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) charity. So I took myself down there and spent some money gladly, knowing it was going to a very good cause.

The first item I have to show you, above, is the limited edition ‘Kiss Me…’ shirt from T Junction (thanks to Kalli Serevi for sending this to me). You guys will have all seen the quality of their gear here on our blog before so you know what you’re getting: great colours, wonderful shading and creasing and the always cool slogans. I can’t forget the great prices and this top will only cost you L$75.

Next I’ve got the ‘Simple V’ in white from Atomic. For L$100 you can pick up this fresh looking top that comes on all layers (and I do mean all) and comes with sculpted, fantastic looking sleeves. One little detail about this shirt I really like is that the hem is slightly skewed with one side being longer than the other, giving it a nice loose look.

The hairstyles and eyes I’ve worn in all the above pictures come from the MADesigns Culture Shock exclusive which includes these three brilliant spiky, mohawky ‘dos: Simon (Skunk Black),  Jake (Dark Brown VIII) and Colt (Black IV). These are all you’d expect from MADesigns, great examples of masculine hair. You also get a black hairbase on the tattoo layer to blend in with these styles but that’s not all. The pack includes three pairs of eyes as well: Island Green, Nature Run and Dark Imaginings. And we’re still not finished! You also get a pair of prim eyes (which I’m wearing in the third picture). I’ve never worn prim eyes before and I was surprised at how well they sat in my eye sockets and the mismatched colours, very different and I just loved it. This full to the brim of awesomeness pack will only cost you L$500.

The poses I’ve used in this post are from Status and are also at Culture Shock, male and female poses and the pack I bought is called Samson for L$75.

This is just a very small slice of Culture Shock and this is one event you should definitely see. Unlimber those wallets, have a wander around and donate to an extremely worthwhile cause while you pick up some super stuff for yourself.
