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!

I decided to use my mesh breasts again, so we have another boob-friendly outfit from DCNY which is specially available at Bewbapalooza! You can wear the dress with or without the sheer black shrug; and with or without mesh breasts. You also have the option of a prim or mesh skirt panel. There are nine colors available, and each one will set you back only L$ 135! This is a limited time event, so you’ll want to hurry over and grab one now.

A Bit of “this N that”

this N that

An old friend of mine, Desiree Davison, has a store called this N that Designs, where she sells a bunch of different things. She recently started selling clothes so I used the Balloon Top and Jean Shorts from her store to start a look for today! Both items are priced at only L$ 99, which is more than reasonable , and they are mesh so they come in several sizes. The store is really cute, so drop by and check it out.

Also the boots I am wearing are new from Bax Coen Designs, these are the BAX Foxy Boots in Steel which are now on sale at The Dressing Room Fusion for only L$ 69!

Sweet As Candy?

Perfect Wardrobe is going on with the theme of “Candy Shop” and I picked up this cute dress in double pack (came with a light blue version) called Vellent Retro Dress for only L$ 90 from a brand called Yulicie. It makes me feel like a walking strawberry sundae! So to continue with that I added some other candy-colored pieces.

Accessories can make the look so I put on my new In Dreams Horns from Auxiliary which are available at Zodiac, and then I picked up some earrings from Amorous to complete the look – these are called Urchin and you can change the color of the spikes, metal and so on.

I think I look pretty darn cute!

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 2010: lamb

There’s a trend right now with celebrities and hipsters alike, where one shaves part of their head and leaves the rest of their hair longer. This has been popping up in Second Life as well with more and more hair designers making their statement hair for eager customers. At the Hair Fair, lamb offers up Glass Candy which comes with and without an attached shaved area. It comes in color packs of 4/5 for L$ 300 each or the fatpack for L$ 1500 (over 25 colors). I chose to wear a shaved hairbase tattoo which comes in many colors and  is freebie from booN, also at the Hair Fair. Remember, the fair goes on until September 19, so go get your hair and support the charity for this year, Wigs for Kids, with donations.
