Where Fashion Is Too Good To Be An Obsession

FASHION: Pink Lady Love

Sorry for the bit a break in blogging.  But I’ve been getting ready for vacation (yay!!) and had a minor mental block as to what to blog, tbh.

But!  I finally made it to Vintage Fair and voila!  Block dissolved!

I love exploring fairs/expos.  I find designers I never knew existed.  It’s kind of like…. Marketplace.  Only…. in person.  Kind of.  Virtually.  Just go with it.

I was already in a Grease-y type mood since I hung out with my buddies at a 50s diner the other night.  So it was fate that I came across the booth for House of {TORN} and found the Pink Ladies jacket that I then purchased in both pink and black.  There’s something to say about versatility.

I also fell absolutely in love with the Betty skin from Belleza.  My favorite of the bunch was the special Vintage Fair version 2.  I dunno.  I just love it.

And then, of course, I had to have vintage-y hair!  Wasabi Pills had a great collection and Veronica just did it for me.

Vintage Fair ends August 29th.  If you haven’t visited yet, I highly encourage you to take the time and explore.  You may find your new fashion love!  Here’s your taxi:

Soooo I went a little picture happy.  Worked up three for you guys instead of my normal two.  I hope you enjoy!

FASHION: Marketplace…. My New Addiction….

I thought about this yesterday…. but….

In 2016 – which is only 4 years away – I will have been in SL for 10 years.  Soooooo in SL time, that will make me… what?…… 70 years old?

And that thought led to this thought…. (now I sound like Bill Engvall… only fans will understand that reference)

My shopping obsession has developed over time.  From shopping in-world to browsing Marketplace and favoriting EVERYTHING I want when I have monies.

This….is a problem.   My favorites list has hit 10 pages…  and I think I may hit 30 pages by month’s end.

But…. it does reveal amazing finds I would probably had not found before.  Such as this amazing dress from Chain and Vine.  It’s mesh and it’s just sooooo pretty… well, at least to me it is!  It fits great and just feels rich in the red.  The hair?  Well, I finally made my way over to Catwa at the behest of my bestie.  Too many hairs.  Too little Lindens.  Soooooo not fair.

Details below:

Dress:  Chain and Vine – Pettydress in Red

Pantyhose:  Attitudes – Lace Pantyhose in Tan

Boots:  BAX – Prestige Boots in Black Suede

Necklace & Earrings:  Fusion – Cord Pendant (from Platinum Hunt 2010)

Bangles:  Exodi – Aidan Bangles (store is now closed)

Hair:  Catwa – Yuri in Mahogany Roots

Skin:  Glam Affair – Linn in Medium Tan

Makeup:  Blacklace Beauty – Radiance Shadow 4 w/lashes; Exodi – Smokey Shadows in Smog; Exodi – Lipsticks in Reddish 1

Nails:  Exodi – Sculpted Nails v2 in Sangria

Poses:  Glitterati

Enjoy your week kiddies!
