As I mentioned in an earlier post, only a few days left to visit events that are winding down, some starting and some waving bye bye for the year.Collabor88/August is a MUST to visit if only for every colour of these amazing leather leggings and the fantastic half tucked tee. Seriously this tshirt is incredible, it not only looks perfect with these stunning leggings – the texturing on these is superb – but I have been wearing them with jeans and all sorts of other things for weeks now. I hope so much that this shirt gets released in more colours when it hits the main store for Tres Blah, because in RL this shirt is the kind you would buy in every colour in multiples for each colour just in case you could never get it again.
Only a few days left of Vintage Fair 2012, and it has been a wonderful event. So many truly inspired takes on the whole concept of vintage, from all different time periods which has been really cool to see. The dress I am featuring in this post is the Printed Shift Dress by Ison, they did an amazing release for this event. Three stunning dresses, and footwear, all with a very 60′s influence, and the styles would have any lover of that era chomping at the bit to get their bodies draped in such beautiful pieces…I know I was.
The shift dress is a delight print wise and colour combination wise, and while normally I would rock out some white boots for this kind of look, this softer tan colour just brought out the beautiful creamy tones in each dress colour combination. I have taken the pics in the third of the WinxBoxes released for My Attic @ The Deck/August, this is the Stirred WinxBox and has texture change everything, this is my favourite of the three released, because it has both the very Mod 60′s influence to it, but also the colours and ‘racing stripes’ give it a fun Music Video kind of feel, you need to try it to see what I mean…
Archibald the cat is in need of your support, and so is his owner Gospel Voom. Archibald was hit by a car recently, and his injuries are very bad, and his vet bills and care needed are adding up. Today the truth district location of Gos is having a 50% off everything sale, as well as some other content creators who have put out special items that will be donating to help with these bills. So for those of you that have a pet or like me – have had a pet – you know that this is a heartbreaking moment, and your shopping up a storm could really make a difference to lighten the stress load.
So I was looking all over for a place to take a picture, that looked as though I was out and about. Of course then it dawned on me, what better place to shoot a post containing items from Vintage Fair, than at Vintage Fair. The build is a delight, and the space to get a good pic is really nice, I only got rammed into once, but then it was my fault for being right on the edge of a corner.
My Attic @ The Deck just opened its doors a few hours ago, and the theme for this session is “Shaken not Stirred” . Even though I did feature the Cynful lingerie Deliciosa the other day, I wanted to show you all the colours available at the event, as well as one of the new WinxBoxes by Whimsy Winx and this time around, I collaborated with her on three of them, which was a lot of fun. With the lingerie, I also worked out that if you layer the colours under each other, you can get a cute effect such as pink under black or white, and blue under each and so on.
As mentioned in past posts, I really like the idea of hybrid mesh, the merging of texture based items with mesh accents or attributes. In this example it is the Nina tube top by Zaara. The top is system clothing base layers, with the addition of a mesh band and lovely long tie at the front. If you purchase a single colour of these tops you get the same colour tie band, but if you go fat pack – which is a great range of colours – you get the bonus of printed ties as well…so not only can you contrast with the other solid colours, but you can print up for an added splash.
One year since the start of Collabor88 and it has been a rapidly passing year indeed. An amazing feat that is being celebrated by all the past guests and the regulars of the event in one month long celebration. So many amazing items, and the theme is perfection for a celebratory event such as this, as it is Baroque and we know that just makes you think of parties and decadence.
I really liked the movement in these poses by BENT that are part of their Vintage Fair 2012 release. The clothing I am wearing is from One Bad Pixel, and the dress and jacket are an all in one combo, but please note, I am wearing the jacket from the white dress not the red. I am kind of hoping that they end up packaging the jackets as separate items, as they do look so great with pants or other items. I would also love it if they came in solids.
Three whole sims full of newness. It is definitely building into an event to remember and it only just began. The Vintage Fair 2012 build – by Cory Edo – is full mesh and incredible work. There are hundreds of stores, and if you keep everything to your left you can weave through all three sims and back again – just in case you missed something or decided to think about it. Each booth is a great size, and everything is easy and clear to buy from.
Three different looks today, and all such fun looks that I would wear day in and out…
It is a whirlwind of wonderful events right now. Vintage Fair 2012 is about to open on the 4th of August, and FaMESHed has opened its doors for the August session. The clothing I am wearing are items from Tutti Frutti for Vintage Fair 2012, the pants are of the wide legged variety, and they are really beautiful, especially the stunning print options they come in. These evergreen ones are beautiful and really easy to wear with the solid ruffle top, also by Tutti Frutti. I really like that they are doing solids now, it gives so many more options to wear their items.
