I love versatile looks. In RL, I’m a minimalist. I rarely wear makeup, hate shoes (and socks!) and I tend to keep things pretty simple and I’m frugal. That tendency carries to SL, where I tend to look for styles that are going to work with a multitude of looks. I fell in love with this Vintage Fair offering from One Bad Pixel for that reason. This dress, which makes me think of the quintessential 50s hostess, has this adorable jacket, which by day makes it somewhat more casual. Styled right, it’s not overly fancy or formal, but still sophisticated and elegant. This adorable hair from Adam & Eve (also at Vintage Fair) was sleek, yet not overly fancy for my “day” style.
But say you have an event later that night. You want elegant sophistication, but with a hint of sexy and sultry. Change the hair, add some smokey eyes and paint your mouth with rich red… add your finest jewels, and voilà – your inner movie star is revealed. This hair is new from Wasabi Pills for Vintage Fair, and the jewelry is from Eclectica for Vintage Fair.
The poses from these “night” looks are part of a Vintage Fair offering from TuTy’s – the Chic AO. I really enjoyed playing with this AO. One thing that really stood out about it is that it has some very unique foot positions. This close up of the SLink Vintage Fair shoes that go with the OBP dress highlights one of these poses. This is where mesh shoes come in really handy, because many non-mesh shoes have built in boot fixers that would override these cool positions, and if they don’t, the shoes won’t look right anyway. But since rigged mesh moves with you, it looks great! Shoes were one of the first places where the benefits of mesh were patently obvious to me for this very reason.
I am crazy in love with these shoes… they are understated, but feel so glam. I will definitely get a lot of use out of them!
Stay tuned for even more from Vintage Fair.
