I seem to be stuck in a vintage theme lately, and I’m loving it. 🙂

There are items from several ‘new-to-me’ things in this photo.

I discovered Vanity hair at the Vintage & Cool Fair, and I LOVE the Moonriver hair they had.

So I took a quick trip over to the mainstore to check it out, and found this fabulous pixie cut.

I had never heard of the FAD event before, so when I saw the ad, and that it was a vintage/retro theme, I had to go see for myself.

Le Moyet is a ‘new-to-me’ designer, but I just love the vintage feel of this dress, with the polka dot fabric and the adorable little poodle appliqué on the skirt.

Add some jewelry and these fabulous slingbacks from KC Couture and I instantly feel like a glamorous pin-up model. 🙂

The prop is from Exposeur from the Garcha Garden event (I think).

It’s only 5 prims and comes with 4 built-in poses with mirrors.

I’m not sure why it’s named ‘blue’ when it’s purple, but it’s still a great prop. 😛

It’s finally Friday, so enjoy your weekend!

(Especially those of you in the US, who get a long holiday weekend!)

Today has been a crazy day.

I’ve had so many interruptions and distractions while trying to get this post done, it’s not even funny.

Even though it’s been crazy, it’s been good.

I got to help out someone who needed it, I had a couple of new opportunities cross my path, and I’m still having fun. 😀

I’m a big fan of the Cart Sale by Fab Free, and I love that I’m able to find quality items for low prices.

This is another skin from Lumae – I’m in love with how easy it is to change skins.

They are so well done that I don’t even have to fuss with the neck seam in my photos!

The cute vintage dress is another find from the Cart Sale.

I love all the little details – the appliqué on the front, the lace on the sleeves, and the adorable bow at the waist.

The outfit was screaming for some vintage hair, and this cute pixie cut from Argrace was just the ticket.

Add some pearls from League, some adorable bow heels from Reign, and I’m ready for a night out on the town!

It’s hard to believe I’ve been doing these LOTD posts for 200 days now.

I’ve missed a few days here and there, but I’m proud of myself for doing it.

I’ve learned so much – both about blogging and photography.

Now, I’m off to finish my crazy day, and all the things still left on my to-do list!

I’ve been wandering all over SL lately, taking photos like mad.

I haven’t made it to many events in the last week or so, but I still have plenty of goodies left in my shopping bag to show off. 🙂

I picked up this smexy dress from Garbaggio at the Color Me Project – lime isn’t usually one of my favorite colors, but this dress was too yummy to pass up.

I love this updo from Exile, and I’ve worn it often.

Throw in some killer heels from Essenz (out at the Festival of Sin II) and I’m all set.

I did go back to the cart sale at The Wash and pick up some more skins by Lumae.

I am love with how it easy it is to change skins with the Lumae appliers!

It’s the beginning of a new month, so there will be a whole new round of events starting – I better get ready. 😛

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Because I’m cheap a discriminating consumer, I always make it a point to stop by the bi-annual Cart Sale at The Wash, held by the wonderful folks over at Fab Free.

If you’ve never been, you should definitely go – tons of stuff on sale for as low as $10L – including this absolutely stunning skin from Lumae that I’m sporting here.

It comes with appliers for every mesh part/head/body you can imagine, and it’s all only $10L!!

I hate fussing with appliers, but this was super easy – 2 clicks to apply and I’m ready to go.

I love this skin so much, I’m going back to pick up some more – and if you’re not into mesh pieces and parts, it comes with all the system layers too!

While at the cart sale, I came across this sexy vintage romper and bought it (at only $10L, you can’t go wrong) and it is smokin’.

I paired it with these fab heels from Hucci and some vintage hair from Truth.

I’m a sign collector, so I dug through my inventory and pulled out these gems.

7 Emporium is one of my favorite creators – I love the style and feel of the items.

And who doesn’t need a ‘Dancing Girls’ neon sign, right?!

The ‘Woman at Work’ sign is so old that I can’t locate the creator, but it’s a classic. 😀

For this photo, I used my Perfect Effects program and found this vignette overlay – I love the subtle black at the edges.

I better get back to work – hope you all are enjoying your Monday!

LOTD #105

LOTD 105We ❤ Roleplay is open, and I picked up a few items there last week.

I picked up a cute set of candles from aisling, which I showed in a previous LOTD.

I also grabbed this Magic Potions Shelf from them.

I love the detail and the textures of the item.

This costume is something I bought quite a while ago (I can’t remember where).

The sigil on the floor I picked up at Genre a few rounds ago.

Abracadabra!
