Shop and Hop at the Golden Sim

Hiya everyone! Tonight we have some exploring to do, at a 5-sim shopping extravaganza called Shop & Hop. There are 100 designers taking part, and all are offering deep discounts on special selections from their stores as well as a free gift for all visitors. No group is required, just buy for $0L and you can claim all these generous treats. All of the looks tonight are from the Golden sim, just one of the five that are part of this fun event.

My first look is the whimsical gift from Bella Moda called Costume della Renna Reindeer Outfit. It starts with the dress, in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and classic Small, Medium, and Large. Then we get to accessorize, with a choker and matching bracelets, antlers, blinking red nose, and a fuzzy Bento-animated tail with a HUD to turn the movement off and on. The matching boots are even provided, in Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and resize versions to suit any feet. All this for free, it is truly a thoughtful gift.

Our gift from Evani is their Emma pullover and jeans, which each come in sizes for Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. There is even a HUD included with various texture choices for the ribbons in the back, 9 velvet and 9 taffeta. This is a great look for when you want to feel relaxed but chic, and either piece can be paired with other wardrobe items if you're feeling creative.

I left the Evani jeans gift on to show you this super fun gift from Caboodle, their Bunny Hoodie - Holo. It includes the shiny shirt in sizes for Maitreya and Hourglass, with the same sized additions for the ears. This way you can decide if you're in the mood to wear it with or without the hood and dangling ears. The shimmery texture means you can dress it up or down, and wear it with just about anything that your imagination can come up with.

I am definitely in the mood for relaxing this weekend, so the gift from OSMIA called Night Party T-shirt & Panties is a perfect choice for me. There are pink and blue versions of both the shirt and panties, with the shirt having a polka dot variety as well as the solid. All are in Freya, Isis, Hourglass, and Maitreya sizes, and I love the paw prints on each top! The panties have a paw print on the rear as well, and read "yes, daddy" on the front beneath a teeny tiny bow. I felt like mixing up the colors, but you can certainly choose to go all pink or all blue. I'm ready to snuggle with an SL furry friend!

Some of the designers were moved by the seasonal spirit to put out more than one gift, as was the case with {le fil casse}. They have their Boardwalk Summer Dress as seen on the left as one of their gifts for us, in sizes for Maitreya and Hourglass, with a flirty short hem and wide V neck that will frame your favorite necklace beautifully. On the right I am enjoying their Hampton Tarte Romper, in a Maitreya size with 3 color combos: blue-blue, blue-white (shown), and blue-black. The boy leg style and large flower on the attached belt make this feel delightfully retro, like I should be lounging at an exclusive resort while listening to swing music and sipping a mint julep. Why yes, my imagination did run away with me there for a second...

Whew, what a day! I had to follow up with the eye doctor about my vitreous detachment, and this was the 3rd of the three docs at this particular practice that I've been examined by now, simply by virtue of timing and vacations. So she was my least favorite of the trio, and I don't feel like she did nearly as thorough of a job checking my eye as the other two, but I don't need to go back for a few months now so it must be progressing well enough. My pupil is still dilated (almost 12 hours later) and it's hard to see clearly, so please excuse any typos. I'm not certain if I will be able to blog tomorrow or not, thanks to a continuing busy schedule, but we'll see what happens. This one almost didn't happen because of a prolonged visit with my parents, and I feel like I'm running on empty. I hope all of you have a fantastic weekend ahead, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
