The Promenade part deux

The Promenade TinRoof Trompers gacha NEW

I couldn’t wait to show you a few more items from The Promenade which opens on the 1st of October. I had been looking for some new seasonal boots et voila! [TinRoof] has these little babies in a gacha machine at the event. Ohmaigosh so cute huh?! These are NOT for SLink feet btw – just slide your ordinary tootsies into them – simple dimple. Such a gorgeous range of colours to win, I really liked this brown & pink though, and for me to remove my slink trotters to wear them – you know they’ve gotta be good right !

The Promenade Bye Bye Blackbird gacha dresser - hippie dress - Tinroof boots - Pollen hair Riva

Another new store for me is Bye Bye Blackbird, they have a few items to snap up, I adore this vintage styled “Marcia” dress, 60’s inspire I’m sure. The vintage dresser is sooper cute, different versions to win from the gacha machine. My hair is by Pollen, and is called Riva – perfect for a retro look with its chunky fringe and beads.

Vintage appeal & New hair

HOC Infiniti Miss C

I’ve got a few stores in SL that I always return to on the off-chance they’ve had some new releases, so I was a happy bunneh when I spotted that HOC had released a new frock. It’s so girly and retro, a sure-fire winner for the warmer weather. The most fantastico thing about it is that you actually get it in THIRY FOUR options for your 200L ! Let me work that out..thats uhm…5.8L per dress, what a deal.

HOC Infiniti Miss C NEW!

From retro florals, to polka dots, all with that darling little collar I so love. Ohhh my poses are by Infiniti, I snapped them up at the pose fair that’s on at the moment. Blowing bubbles and catching bubbles, lots of fun and really unique.

HOC Dress - Miss C hair - Frogstar Journal gacha

I guess you all know by now that I totally adore spotty clothing ..and this sweet bargain has absolutely oooodles of them. My journal is from frogstar, it was super cheap and there’s some really natty designs to win in the gacha machine, only 25L a pop !

HOC HUD - 34 Options !

So, here is the HUD, look at all those patterns and spots and cottons . This dress will become a staple in my inventory, I’ve got bags and shooz to go with alllll of them. (seriously – I really do – my inventory is hovering over 70,000 currently!)

HOC Vintage mesh dress 34 options in HUD NEW! Miss C hair NEW!

Heres a few more, as I really couldn’t decide which to show you. I’m so glad to see some classic black in the HUD, a girls always gotta have some polka dots in black & white right? My hair is another good deal, it’s from this round of Designer Circle, and is by Miss C. Just 100L – and there are four styles out to choose from. I’ve had my eye on MissC for a while, and bought a few before, this one is my favourite by far! In the pack is a huge load of colours, platinum to black – so something for everyone.

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)

I also scooped up the zingy blossoms dress with its wide bright yellow belt and mouth watering floral print..adored the wrap of flowers across the bodice..

I couldn’t leave without slipping this adorable bright blue babydoll dress into my bag…with its layers and layers of frothy netting and cute bodice bow…its a scene stealer for sure !

Last into my swagbag I collected this months group gift..the grunge denim jacket. Its got boy bits in the box so its unisex yay! Really fabbaliciously detailed…with paint splatters and rough worn denim,the prims are modify but I didn’t have to fiddle with a bit of it , it just fitted straight outta the box…thanks Shiki I feel loved !

Arsenic and Old Lace

A new release from !gO!   is always good news ! This time is no exception..a gorgeous blouse called “Arsenic & old lace” has real vintage appeal. Ooodles of pristine lace and retro floral fabrics make up this pretty blouse. As is usual with anything from !gO! there a few options as to how to wear your piece. I’m showing the “everything on”..but you could wear it without the flowers over the bodice…as a camisole with no lace..or maybe just the old lace undershirt on its own…they are all equally stunning ! There is also a sweet pair of gloves to wear along with it..check out the back when you get your one…beautifully shaped hem and teaming with details…the yellow version is on special offer for a short time at 105L…other colours available for just 211L …thank you Gocha xx
