New Release in the Boutique Line: Shoujo


A few months ago, everyone's favorite fashionista moppet, Iris Ophelia, persuaded me to give the manga series, Paradise Kiss, a read. It falls into the Shougo genre of manga which targets young female readers. It turned out to be a deliciously indulgent read filled with romance, fashion, and teenage angst. I not only devoured the series but I started to watch the anime as well. This is what served as inspiration for our latest addition to the Boutique line and our first release under our new brand name, Fleur Skins. The Queen of eyes, Miriel Enfield, was kind enough to make anime eyes for us. They should be out soon in both her her brand new sim and our shop in the next week or so.

I'd like to also thank everyone for coming out to the party yesterday. CJ and I were moved to see how many people took the time to celebrate with us. We would also like to thank our new neighbor, Nicky Ree, for donating gift cards for prizes. I think everyone really enjoyed themselves and there are some great pictures from the party sitting in my inventory and email to prove it! I hope to put them up in the next day or so.
