It's a Squeegee Mash Up

By now, if you haven't heard the buzz around the grid of Operation Squeegee, I think you need to poke your head out of your turtle shell or from under your rock and take a look around. It's a buzz all over the blogs and across plurk. I think my plurk in particular features something about OpSquee in every second post =D

Today was bloggers day at the Operation Squeegee Merchants Area. Now while I am on the books as a Merchant Wrangler and a Merchant showcasing designs there, I couldn't resist the urge to jump in with the bloggers and grab a few things that had caught my eye as I watched others setting up. So here is a bit of a mash up of a few of my favourite things.

These cute Tees are from *Dreams*. All colours shown above are available at the fundraiser. With cute little critters on the front and a larger sized one on the back of the shirt. Featuring the Dragonfly, Whale, Dolphin and Praying Mantis. They are unisex too \o/ and, as always, Sanura makes them available on ALL layer options.

Another set from *Dreams*, this time in collaboration with LaLa FooFoo. The Lacey Tease comes with both colour options, black on white or white on black. The cute leggings are a new release from *Dreams* but only available in this colour combo from Operation Squeegee and LaLa FooFoo designed the superb matching ribbed tank to go with them.

This little tub is just too adorable from Slash Me Poses (/me poses). It suits my beach deck awesomely so I think it's going to become a permanent fixture there. And since I was out in the sun in my little tub I just HAD to have the bikini from SySy's Designs which was just a couple carts down from Slash Me poses. SySy's bikini comes in three other colour choices.

Fire GOOD!! have this summery little number, right beside my cart \o/ woohoo. The dress comes in flexi and sculpted versions. Also available are extra stockings packs sold seperately and these antlers with matching flowers. How adorable are they!

Sn@tch is at Operation Squeegee *does a little chair dance*. Ok, fangirl moment over. The Frankie Bikini set comes in three colours in the one pack and can be worn with or without the skirt. Also at the Sn@tch cart you'll find those cute little Shore Drive sandals with a a couple of flowers atop the toes. Too cute! Time to have some summer fun in my bikini so I hit the beach with the Beach Ball photo prop from [Lyndz-Matic]. All seven poses in the one ball. Just wear and click to change.

A Netherworld put together a super miniskirt dress, complete with shoes. Both colours AND shoes all in the one package. Skirt prim is in both sculpted and non sculpted versions. Wear it as is for a summery feel or throw some legging and a cami underneath and dress it up. Such a versatile little number.

All my purchases today were from vendors that advertised %100 of their sales going towards Operation Squeegee. There are also vendors offering %50 of their sales to the cause. It was so great to see so many talented designers offering up their merchandise for this wonderful cause. If you want to read more about Operation Squeegee please head over to the blog page with all entertainment, news, blogs and more all in the one handy location.

The merchants area officially opens to all on July 1st and will run for 2 weeks finishing on July 15th. Live music acts will perform on the Centre Stage throughout the two weeks plus many other activities planned. I hope you all take a few minutes to pop over and pick up a bargain or two to help donate to the cause. Or even pop a few linden in one of the donation buckets scattered around the sim.

And to end this post on a high, a secret hunt has been planned for Operation Squeegee. The 'Eleventy Hunt' (yes yes I know no such thing as eleventy) has 8 green ribbons scattered around the merchants area. Each ribbon containing some novelty from Operation Squeegee. All designed and donated from `*~Zanzibar creationZ~*` (yup me) and %100 of all ribbons bought, for $11L each) go towards donations to Operation Squeegee. So for $88L you can pick a handful of cute little novelties and knick knacks available only through Operation Squeegee and one off designs.
