It's right around the corner! Shopkeepers are burning the midnight oil, putting on the shine, pulling out all the stops, polishing the racks, rolling out the carpet, and bringing out their finest vintage fashions and retro wares for your shopping pleasure. It's Vintage Baby! And with three full sims bursting at the seams with awesomeness, the Vintage Fair 2012 is going to be an event you won't want to miss!
Vintage Fair 2012 opens August 4th through the 29th, and today I'd like to give you a little sneak preview of some of what's to come from a few of the fabulous creators you'll find there. Today's little number is the "Funky Girl" dress and "Peaceful Flower Necklace - Woodland" by Curious Kitties. This is a mesh dress and totally shag-tastic with the 60's influenced print and wide vinyl belt. Shake and shimmy the night away and don't worry, this thoughtfully designed mesh comes carefully crafted with an underside to the skirt as well as the bust area, so there's no peek-a-boo invisible hollow av underside to worry about. Fan-tab-ulous baby!!
Adding to the vintage appeal, the glowing "Selene" skin by Aeva makes me feel like a Hollywood Dream, and my shining perfectly coiffured hair is "Romantic" in mahogany by TuTy's, also found at the Vintage Fair.
The list of designers (over 250 brands!) is totally mind-blowing, and you can click here for an interactive map to help you in finding your old favorites as well as a huge number of some I'm sure you haven't heard of yet but are very well worth the visit! Be sure to show some extra special Vintage Love to the event sponsors: Aura, Belleza, Cheeky Pea, coldLogic, Gizza Creations, Indyra Originals, PurpleMoon Creations, oOo Studio, Trompe Loeil, and of course Kiera Seerose and the Chic Management team, without whom this event would only be a gleam in the dreamy eye of vintage lovers everywhere.
If all that wasn't great enough, there's over 115000L up for grabs in the Vintage Fair Flickr Competition from the very talented and generous sponsors of this event. The photo competition runs from July 28th to August 31st with winners announced on September 7th. Read more about it on the Chic Management SL blog, and be sure to join us in the Vintage Fair 2012 Flickr Group pool and send in your photos! Whether you're marvelous, fabulous, divine or simply groovy, come on out and share your gorgeous vintage self with us at Vintage Fair 2012. See you there!
