ASU - Oct CBF2
This lovely skin from Mert & BusenuR is a phenomenal gift.  It includes system layers for classic avatars, and a bunch of specialized appliers, plus the all purpose Omega applier.  Not only that, the package includes no brow and cleavage options.

I love these subtly macabre spider web eyes from LadyBunny. The included appliers work great.  However, it’s also wonderful to know the box contains both mesh and system eyes. Thanks LadyBunny for making a product all avatars can enjoy!

And that’s a wrap.  Until next time, shop happy.

Last September I had a dream.  Granted it was a very small dream, but it was filled with free jeans, tees, hoodies, sneakers, and the kind of flowing long hairstyles school girls love.   Of course, after days of frustrating freebie hunting my dream was unceremoniously dashed.  I simply couldn’t find the kind of freebies I like to fill that virtual back-to-school shopping list glimmering in my mind’s eye.

My friends, that story will not be repeated this year!  Casual clothing lovers and virtual students, this series of posts are for you.

Cynful’s casual shorts gift comes with an awesome 30 color HUD.  The store group is free to join which makes grabbing these babies a snap.  Pair the shorts with Dreams’ Yanela pullover, and you’ve got a minimum of 16 different looks.

Keds fans will adore these wonderful little sneakers.  They’re copy/mod for easy resize/recoloring.  Plus, the faces are numerous, making recoloring a joyous task. 

Tune in tomorrow for Back to School – Part Deux!
