Vintage? Or New Age?

Vintage… or New Age?

The Vintage Gacha Fair is open until March 19th and you can visit it to pick up old Gachas for 30L a spin, plus there is a free gift at every booth! I picked up two gifts that inspired me to put together a creative look and I can’t decide if its vintage flapper or new age woman… but I love it none the less!

My arm bands, choker, and headband were free at the Vintage Gacha Fair courtesy of Sweet Kajira, and when I put them on they fit like a dream and I knew I needed to find something to match. I was pleasantly surprised when I ran across another gift at the Fair that stole my heart… or rather my eye.

If you stop by the BlackPearls booth, also at the Vintage Gacha Fair and nab their free gift, you’ll get the headdress with eye-patch that fit just perfectly over the top of my Sweet Kajira headband. I only had to edit it just a tiny bit to pull it out from my hair so my hair didn’t poke through. And the two were a match!

Off to find a dress…

I knew that I needed the perfect outfit… or in this case – dress – to go with my outstanding accessories. Black Rose didn’t let me down. They have set out their March group gift and it is beautiful. The group is free to join, making the gift free as well. When I paired it with my Vintage Gacha fair finds, I couldn’t decide if my look was Vintage Flapper Woman or New Age Gal, but I loved it anyway!

Sizes included for the dress:

  • Classic mesh sizes XXS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Vintage Carson…

The ladies on the blog like to call me vintage, so I’ll bow to their wishes and live a “vintage” life. And an easy way to furnish your Victorian home is follow the hunt path on the Steam XII Hunt. I was able to decorate my living space for FREE by just finding the hunt items. I was also lucky enough to find an outfit (or two) along the way. Find your way to Cutie Larks and the Endymion Outfit can be yours for FREE. Don’t worry ladies, there’s a female gift there for you also! I borrowed the shoes from the Columbiad Engineer Outfit from Sparrow by Design that I showed [HERE] to complete the look.

To the Moon…

But today’s post isn’t about the clothing. I want to show you some of the wonderful and unique items for your house (if you live in the 1890’s) that can be found for FREE on the Steam XII Hunt. The hunt prize at Simply Shelby is the Reclaimed Ash Bookcase – Jules Verne Edition. It’s a beautifully crafted shelving unit with all kinds of Verneian memorabilia mixed in. The Steamer Trunk Coffee Table can be found at Casa de Bebe. The trunk include sit poses and makes a great addition it your next expedition to the unknown. Head down to Wood Works to find the Hurricane Lamp and Table. The Red Velvet Victorian Chaise is the hunt prize from Park Place Home Decor. This chair comes with sits and standing poses and made my morning coffee too! Also included in that gift are Plans for Trip to the Moon. Now if  only had a rocket to get me there. I bet I can find one somewhere on the hunt…

The day went by pretty smoothly today. Even though I spent most of it Skyping with Jules, I managed to get a lot of work done. That feeling of completion makes me feel great. You know what I’m talking about. That moment when you finally finish something you’ve been working on, lean back and say to yourself “I did it”. To be completely honest with you, I was in a hurry today. I wanted to get everything done today and leave only a few tasks for tomorrow, as it’s a bank holiday on Monday in Greece and I want to make it an extra long weekend.

I have no specific plans yet, but even the idea of not working for three days is enough to make me happy. Although, it’s me we’re talking about. I’m pretty sure I’ll end up spending it in bed (which is okay, I need to catch up on my sleep) and then take a lot of pictures on SL. But oh well. We shall see.

It’s almost midnight for me though, so let’s get to today’s post which features a bunch of new stuff. Let’s start with the gown I have on, which is by Lybra and currently available at Shiny Shabby. Did you know Lybra updated her color huds? Yes, you get more options now. She’s also rebuilding her mainstore but it’s not ready yet. At the same event you can check the new gacha from PUMEC. It consists of skin appliers for Catwa heads (rare & commons), mesh ears and mesh eyes. Now if you’re an attention freak like me, you probably noticed that my skin and ears are different than the ones on the close up picture. Yes, check again. Now, I want to say I did that on purpose, but I’m afraid that’s a lie. Truth is I got so excited with the skin applier (pretty much same way I react every time I try a new applier on my mesh/bento heads), I completely forgot about the rest of the items in the gacha.

The skin appliers come with a shape as well, but for this one I tried something different. This is Catwa’s Catya head but on Catwa’s Kimberly default shape. Looks pretty cute, right? Anyways, you can have a better look at the gacha key here. The hairbase I have on is from Tableau Vivant, currently available at the Enchantment. Hair is also by Tableau Vivant, but at Kustom9. I know, you have a lot of teleporting to do.

And of course the scene I created is from THOR’s new release for Collabor88. I have mentioned before how much I love THOR’s work and how he never stops to amaze me. He has a certain style in his creations that just agrees with me. From this set, I pick the book of fairy tales as my favorite – It’s the one behind the tea, on the table. It has butterflies coming out of it. I mean, Come On!

That would be all for now people. Hope you’re having a great day/night! I’ll see you all next time.

Vintage Love

By Reggie – reggieresident. Visit Vintage Love for original post.

This post features newness fromDreamscapes Art Gallerywith some newJianthrown in because I just can not help myself! In addition, some random cuteness from other creators!
These pieces from Dreamscapes Art Gallery are amazing as always. This is not all one set but a few pieces from different sets. I love to mix and match and with the creations from Dreamscapes you most certainly can do that. Somehow they always manage to compliment each other in one way or another. Of course I will show some close ups of the different pieces so you can get a full appreciation for the pieces.  I love the color combination of the Countess set and the stripes make them a must have! The couch, ottoman and chairs are all part of the Countess set.

A close up of the couch and of course a new Jian Love pug! The pug is one of the rares from the Jian Love Pug Gacha set now available atThe Gacha Garden until February 28th.He is the sleepy treater. I will show the key at the end of the post so you can see what you can grab. Now, Back to the couch, the colors are such a soft shade. They are not overly bright or dark and the rose pillows are to die for!
The paintings very much put me in a vintage frame of mind. However, the perfectly compliment more modern pieces.

Close up of the Love Frame H

Now.. remember what I said about pieces from other sets perfectly complimenting each other. This piece if from the Jesse set. I chose the *Jessie* cabinet to show you just how perfectly it compliments the pieces from the *Countess* set. Once again I love the vintage look of this cabinet. In addition, I love the extra added detail of folded blankets and extra pillows to make sure you are comfy! The cat that has stuffed himself in the mailbox is +Half-Deer+ Cozy Cat (if I fits, I sits) – Blue Point. And yes, I love Harry Potter and the love Snape had for Lily.. well the wall hanging from floorplan says it all….The loose mail beside Mr Fat. Cat is  -tres blah- Hodgepodge – Snail Mail.
One of the other pieces used in this image is this beautifully done bottle vase of roses.

I can imagine coming home and my husband having something like this waiting on the table for me.. How gorgeous is this….It is Bottle Vase Roses B.. of course also from Dreamscapes Art Gallery.

Close up of the Paper Roses… they are the Paper Roses A.. also from Dreamscapes Art Gallery

This is the *Melly*Pink Plant Stand. It is all one piece and the next image shows the detail of the plant and the vase. Simply amazing…it is also from Dreamscapes Art Gallery.

This is the Melly plant stand. The vase for this one is texture change and you have several beautiful options to choose from. Once again, another amazing creation from Dreamscapes Art Gallery.
Of course I can not help but sneak in a few more pictures of the Jian pugs. I adore pugs they are so cute!!

The Jian Love Pug sleeping pug family… The bed is the +Half-Deer+ Ribbon Dog Bed – Pink+White

Uh oh someone found the treats!! But, how can you be mad..look at that face!! This little guy is the Jian Love Pug Dark Fawn Wanderer. The treats are the +Half-Deer+ Porcelain Dog Treat Jar – Pink – Brown

The cactus is from Floorplan and is the potted cactus with a texture change pot. The table is from aisling and is called the  Not so old wood thing.

This item is from Myth –  and it is the Wall Lamp "Dimly" Blue (w. cloth).

The promised Jian Love Pug Key
Ok ladies and gents that is all for now. As always happy shopping and I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed making it!
