Vintage Fair Preview!

It’s almost here! Chic Management’s Vintage Fair 2012 opens in just 2 days. I was beyond excited to be chosen as one of the bloggers for this event, and the sneak peeks I’ve had have just blown me away. The build is spectacular, and so well laid out. It’s nice and easy to navigate, and I say this being someone who is easily lost in either world!

I apologize in advance because I am probably not going to be blogging much else but Vintage Fair for the next week or so! I just have so much amazing stuff to share with you all. This event is being sponsored by Aura, Belleza, Cheeky Pea, coldLogic, Gizza Creations, Indyra Originals, PurpleMoon Creations, oOo Studio and Trompe Loeil, and it is three sims big! There’s also a photo contest for the event, the details of which you can read about here.

I had to start my Vintage Fair blogging with the 80s. As a “child of the 80s,” it’s a time period I remember well, and I loved the bright colors and crazy, wacky styles then and I still do now! Of course, I’m not entirely thrilled to think that my childhood clothing would be considered “vintage,” but alas, I will somehow manage to cope with that reality. I’m starting with Izzies & Lush. The Jem sweatshirt is from Lush. I absolutely loved the show Jem as a kid (I’ll try not to obsess over how many of my SL friends weren’t yet born when I was watching this show!), so when I saw this top I knew I had to blog it. It’s Truly Outrageous, after all.

The skin is from Izzies, as are the nails and awesome shiny leggings. This is the Eliza skin in Sunkissed and there are 3 makeup versions for 80s Eliza. I’m wearing the purple here. Also from Izzie’s, and available as a gift at Vintage Fair, the headband (which is texture change) and the mesh bangles. The top is part of an outfit available that is called Flashdance, and the look does just scream Flashdance!

Flashbacks... er, Flashdance!

The zebra print gown in this second look reminds me a prom dress that was worn by the older sister of a friend to her 1985 prom. The gown is from Envy Me, and I believe it is a Vintage Fair exclusive color. This pose is one of a pack of five from Sleeping Koala, also available at Vintage Fair.

The gorgeous skin in this look is Selene from Aeva (aka Heartsick – I believe they are rebranding). It’s absolutely stunning, isn’t it? I love the smokey eyes, and if blue eyeshadow doesn’t scream 80s, well… I didn’t have a My Little Pony sleeping bag!
