From June 22nd to June 24th Scandalize has removed the L$100 group join fee for their group, as part of their 2nd-anniversary celebrations. Why is this a big deal? Because when you now join the Scandalize group for FREE, you can pick up no less than 88 great group gifts!
Here’s a link to the group: secondlife:///app/group/c6b27443-12c9-083f-efd2-d56dfaf2ec3a/inspect (copy and paste this into the chat window of your Second Life viewer). Or just search for “Scandalize” under the Groups tab in Search.
The group gifts wall is located on the wall behind the main reception desk:
There are 77 gifts on that wall, and when you turn around, there are another 11 free group gifts of jewelry on the counter! (There are actually 13 vendors, but two don’t work.)
So, if you haven’t joined yet, because you are short of Lindens, now is your chance!

Here’s a SLURL to take you to the Crazy Fashion shopping event.
The Second Life Vintage Fair runs from June 8th to June 24th, 2018, and Bee Dumpling and Solas NaGeala, the owners of Silvan Moon Designs (SL Store, SL Marketplace, Flickr), have created a beautiful 1920s style gown for the event, called Miss Fisher.
The gown comes in six colours: green, blue, midnight, pink, purple, and teal. It comes with a fake fur boa in either white or black, in five different sizes.
The Miss Fisher gown comes in sizes to fit the Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, and Slink Hourglass female mesh avatar bodies, plus classic system avatars with an included alpha.
The Miss Fisher gowns are L$450 each, and they can only be found at the Vintage Fair as an exclusive. Here’s the SLURL to take you directly to the Silvan Moon Designs booth at the Vintage Fair.

Two or three times a year, Ricielli offers its shoppers a hunt for very easy-to-find objects in its store. Each hunt prize is either women’s clothing or footwear from the Ricielli collection. These are all uniformly well-designed, beautiful mesh items. You pay only L$15 for each hunt prize you find.
If you go to the Ricielli main store, you can still take part in their Easter hunt. But thanks to Cat Pink and her YouTube channel, I discovered a tucked-away place on the Ricielli sim where you can pick up all the previous hunt prizes, still for L$15 each!
Here’s the SLURL to the location for all the past hunt gifts. Each hunt prize collection has a sign which tells you what is in each package before you buy it:
L$15 each is an absolute steal for such well-designed clothing and shoes! Here Vanity Fair is wearing the green Gigi blazer and undershirt combo with black leather leggings, which are both Halloween 2017 hunt prizes:
Total cost for this outfit (not including shoes) is only L$30!
Now is the season (in the Northern Hemisphere, at least) where light, summery, flowery dresses are pulled out of closets to wear in the warmer weather. Abiela has created some beautiful, romantic clothing with her line of Hope dresses, perfect for sunny summer days!
The Hope dress comes in four different colours: blush (seen above), blue, pink, and yellow. Each colour is available for L$190 at the Virtue store.
Vanity Fair is wearing:
Dress: Hope dress by Virtue
Shoes: Amy ballerina flats by KC Couture
Hair: Dasha hair by Truth
