Sundays used to be “shopping day” in SL. Oh, who am I kidding? Every day is shopping day in SL!! But, back in the times of old, my friends and I would gather together at someone’s land and rez out our pose stands for an unpacking party. We’d be brutally honest about the good, bad, and ugly. Sadly, all of my pals have dropped off the grid over the years, but I still hold true to this Sunday tradition.
I am a huge fan of weekly events, and I am pretty certain I belong to all of them: Fifty Linden Friday, Hello Tuesday, Secret Sale Sunday, Glorious Days, 60L Saturday…the list goes on and on. The perk is that you can find great deals but the downside is you have to be quick and hope it’s RL payday before the day or weekend kicks off.
One perk to all weekly sales has been finding new designers and new groups with awesome gifts (again, remind me to ask LL for more group space!). I decide to love a designer based on what they put up for sale on those special weekly events. Are they tossing up their old designs circa 2013 or are they putting up fresh new styles to lure me in?
Today’s outfit is inspired by Glorious Days and Secret Sale Sundays. While these deals might not be there when you get there, they showcase the kinds of items these designers put out. I also poked around at the group gifts to see if the cost was worth it, and determined if there were other elements I liked about the designer’s work. Both events require free group membership, and Secret Sale Sundays requires the use of a transportation HUD.
There were a lot of hot deals to sort through today, and I couldn’t decide which designers to feature! Some Sundays are “meh” but today was a treasure trove. Through Secret Sale Sundays, I found this adorable short set from a shop I never heard of before…Key Style Store! I chose to blog this one because it proves the point of finding new designers through the weekly events. The Marigio outfit has three pieces with a 6 color HUD so you can mix and match. It also includes white sandals which match the whole outfit no matter what colors you pick. Check out the listing below for sizes. You don’t need to be a member of the Group to get the Secret Sale Sundays pricing, but at an affordable L50, you will have access to some really sweet new threads designed for VIPs.
In the Glorious Days event, I found a pretty bracelet to match this outfit at another designer I never knew about: Ysoral. The Luxe Bracelet Alex comes with a HUD where you can customize each part of the bracelet and correct the sizing. This was L1 if you were a member of the Glorious Days group.
The prop set was also coveted through a listing on Glorious Days. The Cowgirl Saloon Booth was L50 and the cowgirl pose set was L60. While I’ve been to Something New a million times in the past 15 years, I don’t think I realized how awesome their group gifts were. The group is free, and right now there is a sexy couples pose and a delightful single pose with mirrors. The LM will take you the main portal for the land, but there is a TP board right there to click to get over to the store.
Overall, I had an epic Sunday full of great deals and surprises. If you want to come hang at my place, we can spend the next seven hours unpacking boxes!
