Vintage Fair 2012 Preview: At The Diner

The Vintage Fair is almost here, it opens Saturday, August 4, 2012! I have a small preview today, with items from Ingenue, and, fair sponsor, oOo Studio. Other sponsors include: Aura, Belleza, Cheeky Pea, coldLogic, Gizza Creations, Indyra Originals, PurpleMoon Creations, and Trompe Loeil.

My Jubilee necklace, Lauren skirt and Jive shoes are all by Ingenue, one of the widely known and long-standing, vintage brands. I went for a classic black and red outfit and used the background of a diner to give it an even more retro feel.

Aren’t the cherries on my necklace cute? Both of the poses I used are by oOo Studio, they have new vintage-inspired poses out for the event and they are one of the major sponsors this year. I can definitely see using them beyond the fair because they are feminine and classic.

Summer By The Water

A quick summery post, showing off one of the new hairs I picked up from LeLutka at Hair Fair 2012 called Salome. It’s wild and fun, perfect for the carefree look I was going for. Today is the last day to visit Hair Fair, so make sure to get there before everything is gone! A portion of all sales will go to the charity Wigs For Kids, find out more by checking out the official blog: http://hairfair.wordpress.com/

Hair Fair 2012: 2 By Lamb

Hair Fair 2012 is flying by so fast! It’s been nearly a week since my last post so I must show you 2 mesh hairs that I got from lamb, which I absolutely adore. The hair shown above is called Wild at Heart, and I am wearing it in a color called Unicorn. This is from the Macaron color pack, in case you also want a less traditional shade of hair.

I got a second style in the same Macaron color pack; this one is called In Heaven and I’m wearing the Koolaid color. It kind of does remind me of grape Kool-aid which I loved as a kid for some reason. Besides these two styles, there are 2 more women’s hair and one men’s, which could be unisex as well. All styles donate a portion of the sales to the charity picked by Hair Fair 2012, Wigs for Kids. More info on the fair can be found on the official blog: http://hairfair.wordpress.com/

I also had a cute look going on today with the first style, so I thought I would share it with you.

Hair Fair 2012: 2 By Wasabi Pills

Wasabi Pills has started to become one of my very favorite brands for mesh hair. Their styles are impeccably made, and every single one seems to call out to me. However, I restrained myself and grabbed 2 of the styles available at Hair Fair 2012. The first is called Ichigo (which means strawberry in Japanese) and I got it in a blonde pack since I felt quite summery with the way it was tied up. It comes with a HUD that allows you to color the scarf in two parts, I did them in blue and black so that you could see which areas that was.

Then I decided to get the Zoey hair in browns because it felt more of an earthy style to me. I love pigtails, and the headband on it makes it different from all the other similar styles out there. Again there is a HUD to color the beads on each level of the bands, as well as change the color of the bands themselves.

A portion of every item sold at Hair Fair 2012 will go to the charity Wigs For Kids. The amount varies depending on the participant, but it’s a great cause that helps kids who have lost their hair due to cancer or other illnesses get a quality wig that suits them. More info on the fair can be found on the official blog: http://hairfair.wordpress.com/

Curly Q

I feel like the title of this post sort of describes my hair ‘do which was a great group gift from =DeLa*=. It’s one of 2 mesh styles in the gift – and each comes in 2 colors! I love how I can wear hair that I could never pull off in the real world – and it fits my personality pretty well I think. Plus the ruffles of the Mignon top by Ingenue sort of match in a flirty way, it’s available for the month at Collabor88 in 5 colors – remember to try a demo!

If you like my skin or clutch, you should hurry to The Dressing Room by the end of the day tomorrow because then they’ll be gone! My skin is Kajira in light from Glam Affair, and my colorful Danerys clutch is by Emery. TDR is a great place to find items on trend and at a great price, who doesn’t love that?

Easy Boho

Hi all! I’ve got a quick post for you with this somewhat bohemian look I put together yesterday with new items from e! Eclectic Apparel. Both the Mayu Top and Dixie Skirt that I am wearing are currently available at FaMeshed until the end of the month. Pink is of course my favorite color, so I went with the top in rose and a skirt in a similar color palette.

This is the sort of look that is totally appropriate for romping around the beds of wild flowers in your neighbor’s garden…just don’t get caught! I’ve got to scamper off before I get caught, so check out the credits below.
