Be Free

The Vintage Fair is still going strong and there are still roughly two weeks left to shop. Such a relief to me since  money has been tight lately and I haven’t been able to SL shop much. (The horrors I know. lol.)

My top is from, Auxillary, the new brain child of Tyr Rozenblum & Crushed Clarity. In case you haven’t already heard, they’re merging their two brands together to create even more awesomeness. Yay! I’ve been a fan of Tyr’s creations ever since I discovered Grixdale 2 years ago.

And of course the darling pose from Baffle! is also available at the Vintage Fair. It really worked with this whole funky, flower child vibe I wanted for this picture.

Okay done gushing now. If you haven’t made it to Vintage Fair yet then go! If you have, go again! lol. There’s plenty more to discover!

Sleeping Koala’s does the 60’s

I’ve finally made my way around to all the Vintage Fair things I’ve both bought and received. The first thing that struck me was this fabulous go-go dress from Sleeping Koala. Now I’m not normally big on the post-50’s styles (unless it’s the 80’s) but this dress almost begged to be worn. My BAX boots are as close as I can get to wearing actual go-go boots and the bangs on this Wasabi Pills hair seemed somewhat 1960’s-ish. Sadly it covers the Maxi Gossmaer earrings I bought to go with the dress. And thanks to plurk, someone directed me to a Go-Go club in SL where I had a little fun with my vintage look. More vintage fun to come!

It Ain’t Over Til the Fat Lady Sings!

I highly doubt the Vintage Fair will have a fat lady singing but you get my point. It’s still going! (Just in case your forgot.) I decided on one last vintage look in honor of the last week of the fair. I don’t usually consider the 80’s “vintage” but it’s included in the description so I went with it!

Honestly, I’m much more a child of the 90’s than the 80’s since I remember the 90’s better, but having older siblings I do recall bits and pieces of the 1980’s. I rocked out to a Paula Abdul tape that I “borrowed” from my sister’s collection – but only when my parents couldn’t hear me. I puff painted t-shirts until I had a closet full and begged my mom for “stir-up leggings” so I could look like the big girls.

Nostalgic for the past I picked an 80’s look that I built around this great dress from Gawk!. The tights form [Sleeping Koala], while not necessarily an 80’s specific item, fit the look with the pretty bright colors. The shoes are from House of Curios and are color change scripted. They’ve been a definite staple in my wardrobe since I can match them to so many outfits. My hair from TRUTH (LOVE!) and it makes me feel sort of retro with the headbands. I accessorized with these fun vintage record earrings from Magic Nook that I got at a past TDR. My final touch was the bright blue eye shadow from ee. and I love that it matches my tights! Now I sit and ponder what else I could possible need/want from the vintage fair on my giant lego from the Trapped in the 80’s hunt from a couple years ago. Enjoy the last few days of the fair and I really hope they do this again next year.

The Roaring 20’s

It’s another round of Aya bought way too much at the Vintage Fair! I just can’t help myself. Every time I think I’m done, I find something else I want. This time it was shopping for Therathe, since I couldn’t let him totally off the hook. We hit the Vintage Fair and picked up some very nice looking clothes for him. There isn’t a lot in the way of men’s shopping but what they do have is stellar! Here’s more vintage fun for you:

I feel so classy with my fancy cigarette holder! lol

Indyra Originals @ Vintage Fair

So I made it back into the fair today but crashed and so I was only able to get this one item from Indyra Originals. I love the high necked ruffles on the blouse. I paired it with this vanity from Lost Angel. The poses aren’t the greatest for using with a skirt but I thought the old fashioned look of the vanity went well with the outfit.

Vintage Fair!

I finally made it into the Vintage Fair late last night. Yay! I felt like a kid in a candy store. There are so many great items and I am just ridiculously happy with the whole thing. I just know I am going to be broke at the end of it.

Just in case you haven’t heard, the Vintage Fair started on Friday and runs until December 3rd so if you haven’t made it in yet there is plenty of time. There are two sims full of stores (Retro and  Classic) or you to check out. Here are a few of my favorite things so far. All of these dresses are available on the Classic sim. (I Photo shopped one to make it look vintage-y and the other the way I normally do.)
