I haven’t been a major fan of the clothing at Jill, but wow, handing out freebies when your store is closing is a very nice “thank you” to your customers. And what is not free is heavily marked down. Hurry over, because the store is closing August 11th. The outfit on the left is one of three freebies. The top on the right (with scarf) is only $50L.
Also featured: ploom Dot Hair from Platinum Hunt, Vinyl Cafe Group Gift Shoes, HeartSick skin from the Platinum Hunt. Pose by Doll.
Wow, between the Cupcakes sim Bake Sale, the Zombie Popcorn Carnival, and Mango Mango’s $50L and $69L midweek specials, I have so many new skins this week that I doubt I’ll even come close to blogging them all.

Isn’t this retro floral sundress beautiful? There were about 4 or 5 different floral prints available in this dress at the Cupcakes sim Bake Sale on Monday, for only $50L. Sure hope they continue the sales every Monday!

I actually went to the Etheria grand opening on Sunday, including the fashion show. It happened to be dinnertime on the East Coast of the US, though, which meant I was running back and forth between the computer and the kitchen. There were a lot of items that I loved, although the price tag was a little high for my budget. I may go back and pick up a few things later. One thing that was really neat was the gifts that kept arriving in my inventory during the opening. I don’t remember other events doing that, so it was a pleasant surprise.
Dark Mouse features some of my favorite jewelry designs in Second Life. Whenever the store participates in a weekly promotion, I try to get over there and pick up what’s featured (I like the new clothing and the hair as well). I really made a beeline for the Dark Mouse items featured at the Etheria event. I’ve got more to show but here’s a start. The rest of the items are not from the event.
