Culture Shock Finds

I’m a fair/faire fanatic.  There, I said it.  I love all the different types of clothing/shoes/hair/skins all in one place and I always go nuts and spend more than I really should.

Such was the case at the Culture Shock event.  Designers have come together to help a very worthy cause, Medecins Sans Frontiers (Doctors Without Borders) where each one is donating a certain percentage of sales on selected items in their booth.

Left-  Kunglers;  Katherine shirt, floral
Middle-  Sassy Kitty;  Willow skirt, white
Right-  Fishy Strawberry;  Country Life shirt, moss

The site is huge…I mean HUGE, with so many booths, I lost count.  I spent a couple hours there yesterday and only managed to make it through half of the offerings.  And not only was it clothing, but there was poses, furniture, hair and shoes.

Left-  Indyra Originals;  Elora
Middle-  Swansong;  Siam Maxi Dress, orchid
Right-  Peqe;  Flow, lilac

Here are just a few of my favorite finds, mostly shirts for some reason.  All the pictures shown here are completely unedited, except to fit them in the template. 

I was pleasantly surprised to find many creators I’d never heard of before which are now added to a shopping list to visit their main stores and keep an eye out for new releases.

Left-  Swansong;  Sumatra, ocean
Middle- Fishy Strawberry;  Peyote Mini, Wash A
Right- Addict;  Nouvelle, peach

After getting home, opening all my bags and boxes and trying everything on…I was also surprised to find I was only disappointed with one item (due to severely misaligned seams). So overall, the level of quality in what the designers provided was superb.

So if you’re feeling altruistic or just need a shopping fix, reduce your prims and ARC count and jump on over to the Culture Shock site.
