Menu Driven Retro Vibes Living Set FAT PACK Ad

Oh My Dayssss SO retro! I was so pumped when I saw this set by Ever Green – love me some vintage feels. This is the Retro Vibes collection that’s out at the NextUP event – think gacha but you see what’s up next. Unbelievably just $50L a pop ! A fatpack is also available if, like me, you have no patience

Ever Green @ NextUp NEW RELEASE

I test drove almost all of this set – the bar just won for my absolute fav pieces – great animations for bartending , standing, seated etc. Menu driven so a ton of colours to fool around with (same goes for all the items)

Ever Green NEW RELEASE !

Adorable dining set – which counts as one item to be won – low land impact and plenty of animations for dining and sitting – you can even have a jello desert !

Ever Green NEW ! Retro

Relax in the tub styled chair and footstool , watch a bit of vintage television – lots of moving pictures to chose from – love that ❤

Ever Green Retro Vines New!

Seriously SO stylish – even my poodle approves. I’m going to have a VERY hard time trying to fit these items in my home but wheres there’s a will there’s a way right? If you’re not familiar with NextUp machines its super simple. The machine shows the “next item up” for grabs – if its what you want – pay et voila its yours – or you can wait till someone else takes something orrrr buy a couple of thing to get the pieces you want – choice is yours.

Happy Shopping ❤

Fashion’s Story Fair (and hunt)

Bubblez Felicity NEW!

Its been a while since I last did a full hunt…blimey, I’m SO rubbish at them. However I gave the one at The fashions Story Fair a whirl and was pleasantly surprised that I actually completed it ! The fair itself is so so lovely to walk around, minimal crowding so not lagged at all hurrah!. Bubblez has a couple of new releases especially for the gig, this is Felicity, a retro styled dress that would still be perfect to walk around in London today. It actually comes with a smart hat & glasses , both of which I stupidly didn’t see in the box DUH ! Milo did a fabbo video of both outfits, if you wanna see here.

Bubblez John Suit NEW!

For the guys is a suit called John, so John Lennon ! Skinny pants and a sharp tailored jacket. Thin tie and crisp white shirt…voila! Such an easy outfit to wear and a real classic gem.

Fashion Story Hunt Bubblez 5L_001

Now the hunt pieces I chose. You need to go around the fair and collect magazines, word of warning they are VERY small! If I found them, you will to though. There is one particular style of bag that will allow you to click on it to grab a LM to the secret store. In the store are prizes costing 5L a piece. This is from Bubblez and I adore it ! Real Hippy chick cool pants and top.

Fashion's Story Fair Hunt Liv Glam sailor boy 5L

Liv Glam have two prizes, above is my fav “sailor boy”. Two piece outfit with a HUD that gives you three colour choices for each piece. Please note, you buy a HUD and you need to wear it and click the relevant button to get your outfit delivered.

Fashions Story Fair Liv Glam Spanish Wine 5L

Also from LivGlam is this outfit “Spanish Wine”. Two pieces as the last one and with a HUD for three colour choices…brill!

Fashion's Story Fair HuntAUSHKA&CO-Sequin Corset 5L

Last up (but there are more prizes if you find the secret LM!) This this from AUSHKA&CO, I havent really got into wearing mesh corsets, primarily as they just don’t seem to fit me. However, this little baby fits like a dream.

The fair is sectioned into four areas, each themed for a different period of fashion. It’s a lovely set up and really beautifully decorated. Go take  gander. At the landing point you can grab a hunt HUD that gives you hints, and also a map of the fair to make finding your fav designers a breeze.

coldLogic do the sixties

I was all twirly when I found out that coldLogic were in the vintage fair…I waited with bated breath to see the goodies…and boy-oh-boy…goodies they indeed are. Gawd..seriously…well…hubba hubba…I received a little package…and then just sat back and feasted my eyeballs on the dresses. I love this retro look..its fun…its spunky (yes, I can say spunky cause that was a term apparently used in those days – so there !) If these pieces don’t make you smile , youre made of stone!

This is “Brady”…and I so so SO adore it…retro wild green…with a darker slash of colour at the top..thin belt clings around the hips..underneath the most darling ever self spotted peter pan collar blouse…how can you just not love the flavour and design of this perky little thing? It made me feel like dancing ! (other colours available)

Then we have “Montgomery” (you seeing the pattern in the names yet hmm?) I was lured to the green again…its just so evocative of that period…oranges and greens featured a lot, even in furniture…similar to Brady..but losing the girly spotted blouse for a plainer one…I bet some of the fun-young-things of the day would’ve marched up and down the bright lights of the streets in London in this…fabulously fashionable. (other colours available)

“christie” is a firm favourite of mine…I choose the latte & chocolate version…another great retro shape…classic pattern for that period, the short turtle neck..sleeveless..and slightly fared out at the hemline…I have photos of old family members actually wearing this sorta thing ! It holds true today as a timeless design…Id SO love this to be part of my real life wardrobe (oh,  if only I had christies hips!~le-sigh~)

Say hi to “Partridge”…you have got to recognise that name , no matter how young you are..right? This is one of my favourites of the collection for the Vintage Fair…and I just HAD to build myself a little retro pad to flounce around in whilst wearing it…I also looked up sixties music..and found this little gem which made everything  hilariously funny – I had no idea this was a 60’s hit ! Yakety Sax , however my sound track for this blog post HAS to be by our 1960’s heroes The Beetles..heres a classic for you to listen too whilst perusing the photos Twist & Shout yay!

Sooo back to the gear (sorry for the musical diversion !) Heres “kitt”…I was fascinated by this dress…presumably named after Eartha…now Eartha spanned a vast period in time, she was a diva of magnitude!…this dress is definitely a cocktail essential – in the black & silver tones (jewelry by Amerlo Manga for the Vintage Fair)..however..swap it out for…

the pinkish one..and youve got a far more fragile delicate look…in the lighter shades this comes in you can see the exquisite detailing on the peplum waist  a lot clearer, plus the fabric on the bodice really shines through…one thing I did notice with the styling from, the 50’s through to the early 70’s, is it really was a mish mash of looks…hippy chic, swinging 60’s, mods and a few Grace Kelly style hangovers from the 50’s ! Theres much much more than I’ve had time to show here… a vast array of funktastic colours…thanks coldLogic team ❤ (Dont forget the Vintage Fair opens on the 4th August)

Giraffe’s,Snowpaws & Boho

I can’t recall how I ended up at Snowpaws…but Im mighty glad I did…Its a vast place with heaps to see and very reasonable prices. Naturally I gravitated towards the sign that said “free” and came away with quite a stash of dresses !

The first two dresses I’m showing are rather boho inspires..lotsa floatiness going on…great summer colours…wispy & so feminine..hard to believe they cost me 0L !

The last dress is a little different from what I usually wear…and I just so adored it…giraffe print all over..flows around your ankles without really being too formal…low low back with a crossover strap effect…again 0L !

Take some time to wander around..there are many discounted items…lucky boards..midnight mania boards..and the new releases are just dreamy..the free section is outside on the balcony area, positively heaps to get your “paws” on…

Go get boho’d: Snowpaws
