The New Vintage

Today I’m taking some items that say “vintage” and mixing them with some that are more modern to create an aesthetic I like to call “The New Vintage”. Both my hair (by lamb.) and dress (by The Secret Store) are at this round of Collabor88 so you only have a bit over a week to grab them if you you’ve been thinking about it!

My necklace (complete with close-up) is from Kunglers Extra. This is a brand that I’ve worn for years and love to show off because they always make something stunning. This Ivatan necklace is a special item for this month’s L’Accessoires event, so make sure to get it before it’s over!

Up To The Thigh

Well ladies and gents, it’s time for a look at an upcoming release at Bax Coen Designs!

We have the new Regency boots coming out shortly at the store, and as someone who has worked for this brand for several years, I can’t tell you how excited I am for this new model! The picture above was taken with windlight and processed slightly in Photoshop. The boots come in several color options: white, cream, pink, plum, burgundy, red and the black that I am wearing.

This second picture showing the boots without processing, using windlight and projector lights to add some shine – which I did for a specific reason. These boots are “materials ready” so if your viewer is capable of having materials enabled then you will see them with more of a glossy, realistic, leather sheen (sadly mine isn’t, so this is as close as possible). Also, you might be interested in knowing that these boots use a method that allows them to fit many SL avvies with 1 pair (although there are extra plus-sized and BBW versions included).

Excited now, too? Join the subscribe-o or in-world group to make sure you know as soon as they’re released!
