Living At The Vintage Fair

I’ve always loved vintage homes. When I was younger, my older sister used to decorate with all this stuff she’d find at thrift shops and she’d create amazing things with what others would consider “old junk.” I’ve never had the luck she’s had in finding the best old things, but luckily in SL, I can have my vintage style without having to sift through peoples’ used china.

At the Vintage Fair, Funky Junk has brought us the Salinas house. It is too adorable! Of course, I always say that about Funky Junk houses, but I always mean it! There are two bedrooms and a sunken living room, along with the bathroom, dining room, and generously sized kitchen. You can choose to get it without a garage as well.

I learned how to type on a typewriter. Setting it between pica and elite, hearing the satisfying CLACK CLACK CLACK of the keys, it’s definitely a whole different ballgame than typing on a computer. What Next‘s Nouvelle Study has the cutest little typewriter on it! Oh, and a rotary phone! There are plenty of cute animations in the set, too.

And finally for today, you should check out the RemiRetro furniture set from Bella Rose. There’s all kinds of cute pieces in it, and the colors remind me of something you might find in the Brady Bunch house! I think my favorite item in the whole set might just be that clock! Or the radio! Or… well, it’s all so cute, I just can’t pick one favorite!

Go on, now. Go to the Vintage Fair and find some home stuff!

Vintage Fair Starts Today!

Vintage Fair 2012 kicks off today! SO EXCITED! I’m short on time this morning, but I just HAD to show you guys a little more stuff!

Style - Vintage Fair Starts Today!

I know, I’m not usually a redhead, but I was simply called to this color when I put on the Veronica hair by Wasabi Pills! I’ve been looking for a good Veronica Lake style hair in SL forever, and this one is perfect! Especially paired up with the new Vintage Hollywood skin from Adam n Eve! You get a bunch of lipsticks, eye shadows and nail colors with this skin as well, so you can definitely make your own look.

One Bad Pixel brings us the Vintage dress, and I’m not sure when I’ll take it off. It also comes with a smart cropped jacket, which I’m not wearing in the photo but can’t wait to pair with many other things! And of course you know SLink never disappoints your feet, and these adorable Vintage Two Strap pumps are so very yum!

Vintage Fair begins at 4pm SLT, and THIS PAGE will give you the map and SLurls. [I’ll add the direct fair SLurl to my credits.] Remember, events are VERY VERY VERY LAGGY the first few days, so take off your scripted items and your flexi ball gowns and your crazy wings. No one is looking at you anyway, they just want to see the stuff! Have fun, vintage fans!

Oh Miss Brady!

Sometimes I think I was born at the wrong time because I just get such a thrill out of more vintage/retro clothing!

Style - Oh Miss Brady!

When you get to go to Vintage Fair on Saturday, be sure to stop by Coldlogic and pick up the Brady dress. I mean, really? Why wouldn’t you? It’s adorable! And YES, quite Brady Bunch! I really wish I had a dress like this in RL!

I wasn’t sure what shoes I’d pair with this and then I saw the 1970s Heel from new-to-me store ChaChaDee! They are just the perfect little Marcia Brady shoe, don’t you think?

FaMESHed started today and Wasabi Pills put out the Sylvie hair. It’s a simply sweet ponytail style and what I like best about it is that you can wear it with shorts or jeans, but it would also look just as good with a pretty cocktail dress. You all know me – I love versatility in things!

More shopping to do!

Heading Back

We’re heading back in time, you guys! Vintage Fair 2012 is almost upon us! I’m sooo excited because this is truly one of my favorite events of the year!

Style - Heading Back

Vintage Fair starts on August 4th, and guess what? There’s a Flickr contest this year! You can read all about it on the CHIC Management website, but can I just say that the prizes are outstanding? I mean, the first place winner is going to walk away with over $17,000L in just Lindens alone – PLUS thousands of $Lindens worth of gift cards and prizes! Go to the webpage to check out all the rules and see all the goodies.

I’ll have more Vintage Fair posts for you soon, and the SLurl when it opens!

Indian Summer

I wrote this really awesome post, but ended up losing it. I don’t feel like re-typing it all out again. I’m sorry!

Style - Indian Summer

The awesome LeLutka team is gearing up to bring us new MESH goodness! Celoe is coming soon, and if you join their in world group now, you can get this cute little Chelsea dress as a gift! Celoe will be bringing us great mesh clothes, shoes and accessories very soon, so if you’re not in a mesh viewer yet, I’m terribly sorry that you’ll be seeing me in loads of mesh soon. Celoe, along with Mon Tissu, SLink, and Lelutka, have come up with a Standard Sizing package so that if you wear one size in one brand, you’ll fit into the same size in another brand. I think that this will make wearing mesh a lot easier, especially if other brands will work with these sizes, too. Now don’t think you’ll be cookie cutter, either. I wear a size M, but there are some friends of mine who are in a size S and yet they are more curvy than I am. There’s really a lot of room to work with! Well, unless you’re very large. But sizes for XL and XXL are in the works, I’ve heard!

This dress was the perfect simple outfit to pair with my Fanciers Best Necklace and Earrings from Undefined Lilies! I picked these up at the Vintage Fair and have been waiting for a chance to break them out. Sooo very classy and pretty. Love love love!

Chantilly Lace

Two style posts in one day? What the heck has come over me?? But c’mon… Vintage Fair is SO GOOD, I can’t help but want to show off the goodies! Plus? It’s Truth hair day!

Style - Chantilly Lace

I think all of us know by now that Nena Janus of League is exceptionally talented. But what she put out for the Vintage Fair…WOW! The Vintage Lace Cardigan and the Vintage Full Lace Skirt are probably two of my most favorite finds in SL EVER! I naturally gravitate to anything lacy and pretty, so these had my name written alllll over them.

And I don’t have to tell you guys how much I adore Truth, both the hair and the person, do I? His new Faith hair is almost vintage like, reminding me of a style that Veronica Lake or Rita Hayworth would have favored. The thick spill of waves over the shoulder and the sweet little flippy curl on the bangs…love!

Are you guys broke yet? If not, I’m sure it’s coming!

And I Look Like Donna Reed

Mmmm…more Vintage Fair goodies! I’ve been setting up Funky Junk‘s new Pasadena house that is out at the Vintage Fair for the past couple of days. It’s all kinds of retro love! With Nana’s TV Room Set from Hanaya, also at the Vintage Fair, it just makes you step back in time!

Style - And I Look Like Donna Reed

I was very excited to see Reale out at the Vintage Fair this year, especially with this adorable Soda dress! The skirt is a mix of sculpts and flexi, so you get nice movement, and the whole thing is really very figure flattering with the waistband and bow that hit in just the right spots.

If you haven’t made it out to the Vintage Fair yet, be prepared for some lag, of course, but also be prepared to spend spend spend!! Oh! And I’ll be out there tomorrow [Sunday the 13th] DJing a Sock Hop from 7pm-9pm SLT! I hope to see you guys out there for some great old music and lots of fun!

A Little Deanie

Oh, it is so good to be home! I have been itching to get back to my blog! [I know, I know, that sounds lame.] But with Collabor88 starting, and Vintage Fair coming, can you blame me? I’m amazed at the items the creators have put out for both events. It’s a bad month for your wallets, but OH…such a good month for getting tons of pretty new things! This outfit reminded me, a little bit, of Natalie Wood when she played Deanie Loomis in the movie “Splendor In The Grass.” Ever seen it? You should. It’s fab!

Style - A Little Deanie

At the Vintage Fair, I found this beautiful Chiffon Calais dress from new-to-me store Lisa L. I’m a total sucker for lace, so I just had to snatch it right up!

The new Vintage skin from Curio is so sweet and old fashioned! With the added tattoo pencil brows, you feel like you stepped right back in time. It’s perfect with the new Soft hair from Elikatira for Collabor88 this month!

Style - A Little Deanie-headshot

I have much more to blog, but for now, I must shop!
