The sun is beating down hot and golden, the sand is warm between your toes and the scent of ocean and suntan lotion lingers in the air – summer is here at The Wash! From now until June 19th, we have turned the Wash into a giant beach party, filled with all kinds of fabulous summer must-haves. There are 66 designers taking part in the Beach Party event, all their wares laid out on colorful towels spread throughout the sim. In a slight deviation from most Wash events, there is 1 item at 50L on most towels and all other items are at 10L or under. Over the next week or so we will be taking a look at all sorts of great summer items available during this event.
There is a main directory page located HERE which has direct SLurls to the various carts. The sim does get crowded at times, so be kind to yourself and the other shoppers and leave your highly scripted items at home when you come visit.
It’s that time again, inveterate SL bargain shoppers – the Wash is proud to present Cart Sale, Feb. 2013 edition! The sim has again been invaded by oodles of carts set up by a multitude of designers from across the SL grid, all showcasing some of their most tempting items for the bargain basement price of 10L or under. Over the next few days we will be bringing you a look at some of the great items you can score, but remember – the event is for a limited time only. Some of these items are Cart Sale exclusives and not available in stores and some are discounted for the duration of the Cart Sale only – so if you miss this event, you may be out of luck!
We’re kicking off our look at all the great items available this time around with A.R.C.+F.N, Arctic Storm and Masoom:
A.R.C.+F.N. has some great items for both normal-sized avs and petites, as well as an absolutely adorable glowy snail. Special thank you to DelaRosa Glimmer for taking time from her busy schedule to model the petite items for us.
Arctic Storm has a beautiful gown in 4 vibrant colors that can be worn in 3 different ways. Their faux rabbit fur coat was also very cute, with multiple wear options (long or short coat lengths).
Masoom’s Leo dresses were our favorite of their offerings, mostly because I am a sucker for anything with floofy fur and animal prints. Most of their items include mesh and everything looked/fit just beautifully.
The Retro Swap Meet has been in full swing over a week now, and we couldn’t resist bringing one more peek at some of the fantastic retro-themed items available until June 6th. Best of all? Everything you see is 10L or less during this event.
Arctic Storm has a fabulous red and white polka dotted outfit, complete with flirty socks, a wide-brimmed hat and a lovely jacket.
FARplay by FAR Concepts has several beautifully made furniture sets. The colors are vibrant, the pieces are fun and you could easily mix and match them together or mingle them with your own home furnishings to create a unique space of your own.
We found a bunch of neat stuff from The Stringer Mausoleum: some cute hats and pretty hairstyles, as well as a collection of eyes and decorative crates and textures.
There is still plenty of time to check out the Retro Swap Meet if you haven’t paid a visit to The Wash yet, so don’t miss out!
