A touch of delicacy, a pinch of vintage.

Less than 50 minute till I turn 25. So I thought I'd show you some nice things.
And Sway's items for Vintage Fair are seriously lovely !
The whole set is to grab at the Fair and it's absolutely worth fighting the lag and bumping your pixels against some ruthed or overprimmed bodies.
Oh ... the dress ? I've already shown it to you here, but it's Donna Flora Vintage's item, a sweet dress and a matching jewelry set.
So if you haven't already been there, hurry at the Fair ! Check this link for the slurls

Grey days

That's pretty much how my RL days are. Dark, foggy, days are getting incredibly short and it's so cold outside that I wanna cry! The only good thing about it is that my wardrobe needs an F5, which, to my book, means shopping! The same goes for SL, where my virtual wardrobe is ready to explode.
For today's look, I chose this sweater dress by A&A fashion, available at the Dressing Room, but it was too short for a dress, so I added a mesh skirt by Haut Monde, new for Vintage Fair. I accessorized the outfit with a CheerNo unisex hat, a Voix bag and Baby Monkey boots. It seems to be quite a warm and comfy look for this unfriendly weather!

Skin: d.Select Skin Zoe PROMO "VERY freckled" (free at the store)
Hairbase: Analog Dog - chestnut (free at the store)
Sweater: A&A Fashion Sweater/Dress *Green for the Dressing Room
Skirt: haut.monde - Haut Mesh Skirt - Blow - Medium for Vintage Fair
Tights: The Secret Store - October Bloom - Tights (part of outfit)
Boots: Baby Monkey -Fansara boots - black
Bag: Voix//JetSet Crocodile Tote -Black -Hand
Hat: CheerNo Femme] Unisex Hat /Anderson
Pose: Studio Sidhe

Ellen and Ruth

A nice blanket of snow had covered my land when I woke up this morning, and I can only wish the same would happen on my RL whereabouts (well, I would have to change the tires on my car and I'm too lazy for that). I went to check on my mutant bunnies while listening to my first Xmas carols of the season, well, er... does that qualify as a Christmas carol? ^^

Vintage Pt 2

Nov 23- Vintage Fair

My Vintage Fair shopping spree part 2.. Cute and classic polka dots from Kouse’s Sanctum! I said previously I don’t do much vintage personally, but I’ve been wearing this classic dress for several hours just to watch the skirt movement. Sounds strange, but seriously, try it!

Nov 23- Vintage Fair

2nd dress is “Donna” from PurpleMoon Creations.

Nov 23- Vintage Fair

This Charleston dress from Sweet Antidote is a dress that has to be danced it. I’m specifically thinking those old west settings with pianos in the tavern. Don’t ask, it’s just what comes to mind.

Nov 23- Vintage Fair

And last but not least is this little Junior Prom dress from Sn@tch.

I apologize too if these images seem pixeled at all. I can't tell if it's just being silly on my end or if my inferior graphics card is actually trying to prove it's inadequacy. That’s all I have time for tonight, I’m afraid. Next time (I think) I’m going to tell you all how much I love color change items. LM’s listed are to store locations, see this link for Vintage Fair SLURLS.

Jumping on the Vintage bandwagon

This fall's Vintage Fair has been blogged a lot, all over the blogosphere, and even here, on Look What the Cat Brought. Now that the craziness of the first days has subsided, and the lag is managable, I've finally been able to take a tour there, and I found a few pretty things, including this adorable mesh dress from Couverture.

The cute hair style I'm wearing is neither new nor from the Fair, but it's part of the annual sale at Clawtooth, and 50% off (only 137l$ for a color pack). I think Bubbles Clawtooth's unique style is perfect to compliment any vintage look.

  • Hair : Twinkle Toast by Clawtooth

Not So Vintage, Vintage - Pt 1

Vintage Fair Shopping

This cute top/dress from DCNY comes with capri leggings, but I much prefer pants, personally. The pants I used are Izzie’s tweed pants in black. Shoes are from HOC Industries. All three items are available at the Vintage Fair or their respective mainstores.

Vintage Fair Shopping

This set is from Orquidea but they are separate purchases. Pretty sure I’m allergic to the color pink, but I was this close *holds up thumb and finger measurement* to getting the pink set. The top does come with a “rolled” bottom hem on the shirt but I opted out of using it. Shoes are another set from HOC Industries. Both available at the Vintage Fair or their mainstores.

Vintage Fair Shopping

And last pic for tonight includes this really cute top from Sassy. I paired it with a skirt I found at Art Decade. Sassy’s Poet Shirt can be found at the Fair or their mainstore.

I also want to note that these pics were all taken in a gorgeous skybox available from It’s on sale (for $40L!) at the FTLO Black Market which opened on the 7th but I don’t know how long these run.

Despite fighting lag or massive crowds, what’s the best thing about fairs in SL? Easy! I find/rediscover some love for stores I’ve either never heard of or I haven’t shopped at/kept up with for a variety of possible reasons. I tend to brave through most fairs, but not all as some simply aren’t my thing. Vintage isn’t really my thing, either. As much as I love ancient history/medieval, retro is totally different and really not my style unless we’re talking boho/neutral hippie like, that’s a different conversation. Anyway.. I went, I saw, I lagged, I crashed.. and I shopped like crazy. For not caring much for vintage, even I’ll have at least two fair threads coming your way. Next round has some dresses from the fair, some boots and more info on the shoes I used tonight. I’m going to go sleep now!

Here's the Vintage Fair website, the slurls/map page is extremely helpful if you already know right where you want to go!

To the lighthouse

Yes, this is a Vintage Fair post. Again. Because there's an amazing amount of gorgeous stuff that you need to get there. I never thought at my avatar's style as vintage, but this event made me reconsider.

Today, Moniq is wearing a lovely dress by Indie Rose. The top is simple to emphasize the skirt pattern and the lace at the bottom (that's the part I love best). I added a rich jewelry set by Dona Flora, also released for VF, because it stands out on the white top. it comes with a hud to change the color, so you can match it to any outfit. The MADesigns hair is also available at the event.
Today I discovered something: Tres Blah looks great on Moniq. I usually like photosourced skins, especially those who give my avatar a more mature look. I did demo the TB skins available at Collabor88 and surprise! I love them on my avatar. If you did not try TB, maybe you should!

Skin: -tb- {Tan} C88 Shallow Skin for Collabor88
Hair: .::MADesigns HAIR::. ~ TRISH ~ Dark Blonde VI for Vintage Fair

Shoes: [e] Move Pumps - Powder

Wearing Snowflakes

I am seriously grateful and humbled by the opportunities I’ve been given in the past week regarding SL. Thank you, Mae, for allowing me to take my journey here, too. For readers, I didn’t hijack Mae’s blog, I swear! She let me in as another new addition to her collection of bloggers.

I’m kicking off my time here with something spectacular and some “I’ve gone overboard with layers”- ness. Kouse of Kouse’s Sanctum released a new gown today in 8 colors. I think I melted into a puddle when I put one of these on the first time. It’s Kouse style gowns with beautiful snowflake details and ribbon edges and so pretty! It was difficult to accurately picture the back, so you might have to see those for yourself to really appreciate how the bustle sits. And, if you head down to the 2nd level of her store, the Christmas Advent sales board is still there with the snowflake tiara on it, which matches perfectly!

Nov 11 - Elizabeth

Nov 11 - Elizabeth

When I went looking to accessorize with this gown, especially in red, I knew I wanted a winter cloak. Don’t ask me, but I have a thing for cloaks and I have a hard time finding the “right” ones. I did this time though! The cloak is from Arwen’s Creations and has a fur lined hood with some options too, but if I wore that I couldn’t show the tiara, and that would just be wrong!

Nov 11 - Elizabeth

The older and overboard part is all in my head.. or on it, rather. I go through spurts where I really need to do something outside the ordinary, even if it doesn’t make sense to anyone else.

Nov 11 - Elizabeth

These pictures were all taken at the Christmas Village where I played for quite a while and grinned like a fool the entire time. As much as I love fall, there really is something about Christmas time.. On a side note, I promise to try to be a little simpler in future posts.. there's a lot of "stuff" here, sorry!

Waiting for Vintage Fair

Yes... we are all waiting for Vintage Fair to open its doors. And believe me, I have been dreaming of getting my pixelated behind there. So I can't wait any longer !
But while waiting, what do you think of a nice gazebo for the cold days ?
A little shelter to escape, think, meet friends etc etc...
Well, the talented Photos Nikolaidis from A:S:S made something just like that for us. And for free yes.

New cat on board. In style.

Look, the cat brought a new blogger! I hope you like my face, because you'll see me post here once in a while :)
And with only a few hours before the hottest event of the month opens, I have for you a sneak peek of Vintage Fair. There are about 200 designers with exclusive items, from steampunk to disco, going through the golden years of vintage, the 20s and the 60s. And many creators also prepared gifts for shoppers. Here's a mix of VF items for you:

This look was inspired by the Vanity Affair dress by Alexohol. While simple, the dress is elegant and comfortable and it's a perfect choice for a vintage lady who plans to go out for a coffee on a sunny afternoon. That lady would also choose this vintage tote by House of Fox and the Sway huge summer hat (and this one is a VF gift). Luckily, she is living in SL so high heels are not a problem for her feet. She would gladly wear the Plain Jane pumps by Cool Beans to complete the look.
Of course, a delicate piece of jewelry is a must for a posh vintage lady, and a pearl is a woman's best friend (no, I don't believe in that story about the diamonds). The Pearl Drop necklace by Caroline's Jewelry is just what she needed.


Skin: Dharma by Essences for Vintage Fair
Hair: Half Awake by Tiny Bird (no longer available)

Shoes: Plain Jane pumps - Grapefruit by Cool Beans
