Happy Independence Day to all of my lovely American friends! And for those who live outside of the USA, happy 4th of July anyway because it’s Saturday and that’s always a time to celebrate! Unless you’re one of those fancy Australian peeps who lives in the future, where it’s Sunday already. In that case, I really wish you’d get around to divining my lottery numbers so I can afford to buy out the delicious sales and events going on this month!
Speaking of which, an amazing number of brands are having special sales this weekend (some extend through the end of July; dates are included below).

I may be missing the red and white from my look today, but I’ve definitely got the blue covered! This lush, chic dress is by db Dollz and is exclusive to The Showroom event through July 11th. It comes in six colors, and I was head-over-heels for the rich, sapphire blue tone. Blue is my favorite color, and I just don’t wear it often enough in-world, which is an inexcusable crime! The soft ruching is a lovely detail, and I have to adore a dress that can easily be dressed up or down, and is both sexy and chic. All of the rawrs! ♥
My sweet accessory is another event exclusive: the Ribbons & Pearls necklace by Secret Love may be found at the FAD Fashion Event through July 25th. As always with Faylinn’s lovely designs, you have several metal, ribbon and gem colors in the HUD to choose from. My eyes and nails are two free Marketplace finds from TSM and By Snow, and I love the pops of purple to compliment the blues. I’m sure with that, my lavender-loving friend Holly will insist that I’m once again attempting to be an enabler, but my only response to that is: “What do you mean attempting?” /me grins cheekily

My prop is by Something New Poses n’ Props, and is specifically designed to show off shoes, which I just love! I’m using a built-in pose in my 1st pic, and the pose in my 2nd pic is by Signature Pose and is exclusive to the My Slink Obsession event, which kicks off on July 5th. Between all the ongoing and upcoming fashion events, and the weekend and month-long sales, you’ll have the perfect opportunity to offset a frenetic holiday with a heapin’ dose of retail therapy!
One final thing to sneak in: today is the final day to check out the unique, creative, dazzling builds at the Second Life Community Celebration sims. If you need some guidance on the not-to-be-missed exhibits, please visit my SL12B Event Roundup, the official SL12B website, or the Flickr photo pool for inspiration! Me, I’m off to collapse into bed and get a nice rest before the day’s festivities. Have a wonderful weekend, one and all! ♥
