It's GREAT to be a Groupie

Dear Diary:

There are so many great designers in this world and they offer so many wonderful creations.  You can go to their stores and shop til you drop.  But besides providing us with unique and awe-inspiring items, they give you prezzies for being in their group.  Over the few years that I've been shopping and decorating, I've been lucky to get some fantastic gifts.
One of the most innovative designers is Sascha Frangelli, the owner of Sascha's, the premier place for formal gowns.  She's always got amazing pieces, whether it's formal, casual or accessories.  Pictured here, is the November gown, a deep cinnamon, velvety texture formal.  It just looks luxurious.  There is a charge for joining Sascha's group now but it's well worth it when you get a free formal gown every month.  The three piece furniture gift has 4 animations in the chair and can be added one at a time.
This is me most of the time so I feel very comfortable in jeans and a tee.  Coco has fabulous group gifts that cover a wide range of clothing and accessories.  All group gifts are available long after the announcement of their arrival so you can go and collect previous offers.  AND there is no charge for joining her group. Her clothing is so well made that I enjoy getting everything she has. Her clothing comes in a variety of layers which makes it a lot easier to work with when adding items on top or underneath.
B! Fashions is the newest group I've joined and I must say that the gifts have been outstanding.  This was the fall gift and it's such a cute little flirty outfit in a sensational pattern.  The mini skirt poofs out and bounces when you walk.  I had to buy the matching boots since it just seemed to be part of the total look.  The jewelry compliments the look as does the short reddish hair. I figured this "Shopaholic chair" was a perfect place for me to sit since I'm sure that's my title in all worlds.

Yes there are great groups to join so if you want to dress like a diva or decorate your house like an interior guru, look for the "join" board when you visit your favourite place.  With the announcement that we may be able to belong to 40 groups  soon, you can certainly become a mega groupie too!

Thanks to all the generous designers who not only design stupendous things for us but who also give free gifts to their loyal customers.

Good Night for now.
