Hello, Sunshine

The Summer Sunrise Festival at Tableau is a must-visit this weekend, with tons of adorables waiting for the scooping. 'Natch when I heard about this thing, I ran straight over to Tres Blah see if another skin was out for the grabbing. No such luck, but this seemed like reason enough to truck out one of my fave skins ever, a former Stumblebum sale item that the lovely Julliette Westerburg was gracious enough to sneak me a copy of even tho' I somehow snoozed it. *mwuahs Julliette Westerburg*
Now: Check. Out. This. Hair. Head over heels lurve this new short pixie style by Lamb, which to me is like, the very definition of gamine. Damn this thing is cute. Where's my friend Dorothy Button when I need her? She would look tres cute sporting this around. I love shopping for my friends. And getting stuff for moi while I'm at it. Heh.

I'm showing 2 free or $1L tops (one of many gifts there; see the Styling Credits below for more freebies tips). One is by Fashionably Dead (Toast Bard is a mad genius) + the other by Surf Couture. The shorts worn thruout are $1L by Surf Couture too.

A portion of the proceeds go to charity, so it's okay to shop! Or rather, more okay to shop! The trailing flower detail on this Surf Couture "Canvas Garden" top made me grab it tout de suite.
Here's a beauty shot of the platform sandals I just had to scoop from Surf Couture, which were so cute that I almost didn't mind they don't come with prim toes (oh but yes, the fashionista in moi is quite spoiled that way). I wanted to shoot them so you could see how the toes look tho'.
A word about these poses: I saw these "Salty Sunburns" poses on Xanadu Capelo's blog here + they are sooo cute. They are also completely free. All ya gotta do is drop the girl an IM or NC + they are yours. How generous is that? *mwuahs Xanadu Capelo*

It's weekend shopping bonanza time as usual. Happy shopping love + fashionista kisses to all!

* FREEBIE TIPS: There are oodles of
freebies + cheapies here (combo of Lag Monster + RL time constraints kept me from shooting them all) but the funnest is a sunlit "monkey drum" tambourine-like hand toy that comes with an adorable jingle jangle dance animation, where you kinda sway from side to side whilst jangling the tambourine. I had a fine ol' time skipping around with this while wearing the $1L golden harlequin mask gift too).

There's also a fatpack of free bandeau-top bikinis by Pig (big square sign on the cart) that are supercute.

Finally don't miss the 4 hairs for
$1L each at BP (buy the boxes floating in the pails on the ground, outside the actual store; not in the center street festival) that are cute; think 3 suuuperpoofy "Mushroom" bob styles (in various colors) + 1 braided style.
