Vintage Fair – Lush Limited

Vintage Fair - Lush

Lush Limited is a ‘new to me’ store currently at Vintage Fair 2012.   After seeing them at Vintage Fair 2012, I checked out their main store to see what else they carried, and it’s an 80’s explosion of  new wave, pop, and punk seperates, and accessories.  They generously provided a review pack, and I loved the look of this outfit composed of some fun items and instead of restyling using the seperates am going to wear it as they pulled it together.  It’s a fun look, and while totally 80’s, this is still a great contemporary fun style.  The Benatar Stripes top is mesh, and has a nice form, and works well with their skinny belt.  The skinny belt is also mesh, but non rigged, so you can modify the fit.  With the Joan Leather pants, I ditched the cute pant prims that are included and finished them off with my LeLutka Shavon ankle boots in bright red.  I love how perfectly my lips clutch from Emery works with this outfit.  It’s available in several colors from reds to pinks, mine being a coral red, I tinted it a bit to match my shoes.

Amacci just released 2 new hair styles, I’m wearing Sione in Summer Blond.  This hair is awesome!  I love it to death!  It consists of a hair base, and hair attachment, which also includes a streaked version.  The streaked version has a hud that allows you to color change the streaks, plus you can remove the front downward whisps.  The hair is fierce!

Vintage Fair 2012  runs through August 29th, 2012.  For more information refer to the Chic Management site.  Vintage Fair Flickr Competition runs July 28th – August 31st.  Submit photographs that include new items featured at Vintage Fair 2012.  See Chic Management  site and Flickr Group for rules, and more information about prizes.

Spring Fashion 2012

Spring Fashion

Spring is when we store away our heavy winter clothing, abandon the dark colors, embracing color, and light. I’ve put a spring outfit together utilizing the 2012 hot color trend of tangerine, offset with another 2012 trendy color shade of blue/green that fluctuates between teal, and jade.

Alphabet Challenge-E

Alphabet Blog Challenge-E

Letter E in Willow Zander’s Alphabet Challenge was a challenge! I spent a great deal of time working out various looks with shoes that had an E.  Getting the right combination was finally solved when I settled on starting with En Svale‘s Cowichan sweater, and based my look from there.  That settled it was fun to use many items I had tucked away, like these earmuffs from artilleri, and this knit hat from epoque. I love this bag from Tokidoki and would love to have it in real life. My skin is Eva from Tuli, and worn with eye-makeup from ElymodeElikatira‘s secret boots were perfect, and felt I needed to add some socks from League in ecru, as my legs looked cold in my denim skirt from Emery with out them.

Retro Wasabi

Wasabi Retro
Wasabi Pills has released a number of new hair styles since Hair Fair 2011. Shown here in a style post is a cute one called Pompon.  Featuring color/texture change headband, ribbon, knot, and hair bands.  It’s a cute look, I love the bangs.  Also shown are Roy which is a nice unisex style, and I think Thor does well for girls as well.   MissAllSunday Lemon, the hair designer behind Wasabi Pills brand, had many requests for a variation of her Kiki hair, and released Kiki Act II. I’m wearing a fun top called Vicky from artilleri which features a variety of different ‘patches’ shown here with Cherry.  I paired it with an early summer release from LeLutka, the Caprica jeans, shown here with the 3/4 cuff option.  Bukka is a cute store I love to find new things in, shown here are the Double Ring Belt, in this amazing color, it’s full of options even color change loops to match your clothes. I’ve pulled out a favorite style of purse from Celestial Studios.  Celestial Studios was around for years for those didn’t know. They were a popular place to go for skins, eyes, and clothes.  They closed earlier this summer, and will be missed. If you have their items, brush them off, give them an airing they are still great. Lately I have been using alot of their babydoll dresses with my Bloom avatar.

Wasabi Pills Recent Releases

YS&YS’s new release is the Milano Slingback, a sexy slingback shown here in Cherry White.  These are cute, I love the various patterns and colors. These are prim feet, and be sure to remember your best tricks for tinting as they do not feature any prim work to hide the attachment point.  Remember when tinting you will never get a perfect match, just very close to it. For these I recommend being sure to size them right to obscure the area. I sized down about -5 to hide the join. When tinting for street wear (as opposed to blog wear) I like to use the default light settings or a standard Caliah windlight setting. The majority of people on the grid are using default or a Caliah windlight variation. I no longer wear face lights.  Together these help assure me that most people most of the time are going to see me with matching feet.  It’s not fool proof, it all depends on what someone else’s default light settings are, and if there are lights around.  Who cares when they match on my screen ;P!

YSYS HUD

Many people aren’t sure how to go about tinting feet with just using a color picker, for those who aren’t sure I have taken a shot of the color picker on the YS&YS HUD, and circled the area I used to sample colors from.  This area, as well as below into the greyish areas is great for finding various skin tones.  Just use the slider on the right to move between light and dark after choosing.  Play with it a bit.

Hair Fair 2011 – (Red)Mint

RedMint HF2011 A

(Red)Mint released three hairstyles at Hair Fair 1011.  I really like their hair textures, and found their satin blond to be my favorite.  With this outfit I’m wearing Hair No. 09 in black, I loved the flow, and messy look.  My outfit’s ‘base” is the Chic Bodysuit from Nemesis.  I love the top of the suit with the prim sleeves, and the urban skyline graphic on the torso.  I paired it with the skirt from IT Dress from Ladies Who Lunch which is a fun feathered skirt.  I’ve accessorized with League’s Raven Necklace,  fun eyelashes from Sky Everett Designs, and a cool drummer’s case from Sey.  The stockings from artilleri’s Naughty or Nice outfit are perfect for this.
