Every so often a look that I post is so flipping special to me that I’ll share it on my RL FB feed. It’s not very often that it happens, and when it does it’s always because I think that I’ve made something rather good and I want to share it with my RL family and chums. Now, all my friends and family know how much I adore Second Life, so I’ve never held back on sharing that side with them, but a lot of people just don’t get it; and although that’s fine too I like to try and share elements of my Second Life with them so they realise it’s not quite as weird as they think. Anyway, what I’m trying to say is I was so seriously proud of this snap that I just had to share it with a wider audience, and at the time of writing this blog it’s got some seriously positive feedback which has made me super kitty-happy:)
The reason for the share is because of VINTAGE FAIR 2016. You can read all about it on the Pale Girl Productions website, and also enjoy perusing the shopping guide too while you wait to get into the event. There are many eras included in the fair, from the Roaring Twenties through to the Eighties, Nineties and early 00’s (which doesn’t feel *that* vintage to me, gulp!) but one of the most popular decades is undoubtedly the 1950’s and you’ll find plenty from that amazing decade to wear at the event.
I love the 1950’s styling; it’s something I dabble with on occasion adding tattoos and piercings for a more Rockabilly/Suicide Girl-style. Anyway, I found a frock that is an absolute must-have if you like anything associated with that decade at all. It’s from a brand called EPOCH, it’s called ‘Frenchie’ and there is a selection of patterns available but obviously, I went for the Leopard print. I teamed it with my favourite beehive from VANITY HAIR, added the YUMMY ‘Ellery’ spectacles(my absolute favourite SL specs) and I’m still wearing ‘Reilly’ from AMARA BEAUTY here, but this time teamed with a vibrant lip from the HUD. I’ve worn the no brow option and added some JUST MAGNETIZED brows. The joys of applier cosmetic layers, they just add so much to your look!
