Jazz it up

kokolores Jazz hair - FREE dress -

 

I’ve been a right slacker the past coupla days, mostly due to the weather and work kicking my butt. Anyhow I really wanted to get this post completed as the event has now begun and its something not to be missed. Rhapsody is the event, its on from the 28th June till the 12th July. So many great designers are involved, poses, décor & fashion plussss hair yippeee ! This style is from Kokolores and for me is THEE best retro “do” Ive seen in quite some time. Think flapper girl, the roaring 20’s, its epic. The band comes with a colour change HUD, so you can really work it into a lot of outfits.

kokolores Jaz hair - FREE dress !

My dress is a freebie I found on the market place from from Volstead, it comes in two parts – the top and the dress, which can also been worn separately. I have blogged this before yearsss ago, but its a classic and worth grabbing !

Limited

.la petite morte. limited bazaar & . ryvolter . Mink Princess Stole

I’ve never been to Limited Bazaar before, dayum I’ve been missing out. There is a small but lovely collection of items out for sale, such as this two piece  from .la petite morte. Such a stylish look, sharp tailored pencil skirt in a bright turquiose blue. Coupled with a sleek simple satin blouse. You can grab this outfit for just 100L, not sure when this round ends, so hurry along if it tickles your fancy. My to-die-for fur stole is by ryvolter, gawd I adore it, you get two versions one has a slightly wider stance/pose…I found it at this months round of colabor88 for 188L, steal! (available in other colours too)

Eclectica

I’ve been fiddling about with the new range of hats by Eclectica for a little while…whilst I simply adore vintage and retro homewares, I’ve never really tried much in the way of clothing or accessories. However…when I tried this new cloche style headwear on, I was sold ! Each colour range comes with three versions, I’m wearing the blue pack. These are unrigged mesh, so you can re-size using either the inbuilt menu or by hand. You also get an amazing five hair colours to choose from or, handily you can opt to not show the hair and wear your own..clever huh?! The hat itself is a felt fabric, with a silk band and gorgeous metal brooch attached, two choices of metal for this. Pro-tip…Tiffy has left the base of the hat pretty neutral…and if you read the blurb on her market place store, she explains how you can also hand tint this slightly to better match your clothing if need be, brilliant! There is a demo instore to grab and play with. Btw my dress is a release from coldLogic from last year called Christie…lovely range of retro tones in this that I feel compliment the colour palette in the new solaria hats from Eclectica, check them out.

New in yesterday is Flora jewelry set…ohhhh I was so chuffed with this. Id been hunting in my inventory for something that would suit the warmer weather clothing that’s coming out recently..et voila ! Just look at the realism on that big central rose bloom…looks like you could stroke its tender petals doesn’t it? Tiny daisies cascade around either side of the central flower…and you have gorgeous daisy earrings . As is usual with Eclectica’s work…you get SO many choices in the menu to personalise these items its unreal. The strap, clasp,leaves, gems etc…this range is unrigged mesh, meaning if you prefer to edit by hand on a pose stand, you can. Thanks so much Tiffy ❤

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)
