Viva la Vintage

A long time ago, when I first discovered Second Life, my real life twin sister and I came up with the notion of opening our very own Retro themed burlesque club, a classy joint that would be as much about friends as it was about great music, PIN UPS was soon born. At that time there were a few retro designers in SL; Antonia Marat of artilleri, Nefaria Abel of Ivalde, and new up and comer, Betty Doyle of Ingenue, were among the best. We realized very early on, that combining our love of retro fashion with our night club was a winning choice, and it wasn't long before the idea mushroomed into a labour of love named Retrology.

My retro roots run deep, and my love of the vintage designers, new and old, in SL has never diminished. With the opening of Vintage Fair, CHIC Management's daring new venture, it gives me great pleasure to see that despite the fact that Retrology is long gone, Vintage and our love of it, is still very much alive!

What I was hungering for, some new vintage inspired heels, Esther in 4 beautiful shades, were delivered to me this afternoon from the hands of the talented Nardya Rousselot of Nardcotix. She manage to stop me in my tracks when she also delivered this gorgeous dress and chapeau too! An outfit that was just too easy to put together with a little help from Caroline's Jewelry, Curio and oOo Studios poses, all new releases that can be found at Vintage Fair 2011!

I  urge you to embrace retro in SL, and pay the fair a visit or two over the next few weeks, there are so many lovely creations to explore, not just women's fashion, but also men's clothing and hair, home decor and novelties. So no matter if your inner avatar is a silver screen starlet, pin up girl, or rockabilly baby, there is something for everyone at the incredible Vintage Fair. Viva la Vintage!
