“Blooming Spring” Tres Chic Event: May 1st – 28th


It probably comes as no surprise when I tell you that I stalk keep an eye on Flickr and Plurk for events, inspiration and anything that’s generally pretty or geeky or — Oh Em Gee — both. It was on Plurk that I found out about this little gem; Blooming Spring” a Tres Chic Event. This is a new monthly event kicked off this month with the theme Blooming Spring. It started on the 1st of May and will run until the 28th of May.
I don’t know about you, but I love events that run longer than a few days or a week because it means I have time to earn some money to then go and buy all the things! So a 28 day event, every month with a focus on fashion is my idea of heaven. And Tres Chic did not disappoint.


Now, I’m not great at the whole “the scenery was lovely” stuff mostly because that’s just not my thing. Then I went to Lions Hill the Tres Chic venue and I was absolutely, unequivocally stunned. It is beautiful. Seriously, it is stunning. The creators, Evelyn (eva.weimes) and Kate Gavin (lovelykitten Resident), have paid attention to every detail, and there are a lot of details! The Tres Chic venue is so utterly gorgeous I spent a whole morning wandering around and taking photo’s. There are so many little nooks and parks and just go there because it’s seriously stunning.


And here’s another look at me and the scenery because I love it that much. Yes, I did mean the scenery not my pixels!


Right, let’s get onto the important part; the fashion! *insert dramatic flare here*

The Tres Chic website states:

Our aim is to promote fashion thats why designers are chosen very carefully.

They weren’t kidding. This round saw the likes of:

Apple May Design
Dead Dollz
Vanity Hair
Sitting Pretty
Any many, many more!
When you first arrive at the Blooming Spring Tres Chic Event you’re given a HUD that allows you to teleport directly to your favourite stores. Now, this may be mundane to some but to me this is absolutely brilliant because I am really sick of huge venues and getting lost and not being able to find the store I’m looking for and just ugh. So having a HUD that teleports me directly to the shop I want is a dream come true. I am so in love with the concept of this HUD I am contemplating petitioning other Events to get on board and adopt these HUDs to make our lives easier. Of course, I need to research this as I fear the age-old “it’s got too many scripts” will be thrown my way.
Because I’m an honest little kitten there were two things that weren’t so great. However, they won’t stop me from returning or telling everyone I meet to go and check out Tres Chic!
The buildings rely on you using mouse look. Now, that’s fine if mouse look is your chosen view, but if you’re like me and hate it with a passion then you’re going to find you can’t actually stand in a store and will, instead, need to cam around. Just for reference, my pixels are short, I’m forever being surrounded by people a lot taller than me, so when my head ended up going through the light fitting in Apple May Designs it was a bit of a shock. I didn’t mind too much since it’s a lovely light and I was giggling too much about having a “light bulb” moment. Remember, it’s the little things!
Out of all the stores that were participating in this round, there were three that had empty shops at the time of writing this:
Mai Bilavio
I am in no way criticising these shops as I know how hard it is to keep up with endless events and fairs and then, because that totally wasn’t enough, actually finding time to create their content. Is there a Content Creator Appreciation Day? If not I wouldn’t mind starting one. Yeah, seriously. If there is one, could you let me know either in the comments or in-world? Thank you so much!
Basically, I love the first round of this event and I’m really excited to see what the future brings for them and what next month’s event has in store!

  1. I’m in love with the teleport HUD! What a fantastic idea. I get the concept of wanting people to wander around and discover new designers – it’s totally valid and essential to help newer brands get visibility – but being able to TP from one to the next is brilliant. Nicely done, Tres Chic organizers!


    • That’s a really good point, being able to wander around and discover new brands and designers.
      I keep forgetting that while I’m re-experiencing everything — and meeting new designers and their amazing creations — others haven’t taken a break like I did. Basically, I look at everything if I have time. I admit that I start with my favourites first and then work my way through the venue, making the HUD fantastic!
      I should’ve mentioned in the post, damn brain aways thinking things after the fact, that as I have zero mulah I have to set a budget so grabbing demos and making a list of what I want to get this time around is a big thing. Being able to teleport directly to the shop I want to buy something from, even if I’ve left the sim, was a huge bonus! I think I actually bought more and was willing to buy more purely because of how easy it was to get around 🙂

      Haha and there’s a whole other post in one comment! Good job Raz! -_-
