40's Class

Thought I would drop in and show this 1940's new release from Ivalde's.

I'm a sucker for a great system skirt and this one is incredible! The 1940s had such..passion and class. Yay Nef - you captured the feel of the times beautifully!

This hair style is a keeper for me. Thank goodness there are hair shops in sl who do such a great job with vintage looks.

Even these heels have a classic look that works well with the 40's.

Now for the new Allure skin (which I did buy a ton of). It is absolutely beautiful.

I haven't figured out the best way to highlight the skin tones yet in blog photos, but it's just a matter of time. I did try the light in the accessory box and my guy sat up and noticed:)

Unfortunately, the combo of the Muse settings and the face light didn't work for me. So - just use one or the other.

Shoes - Shiny Things, Belles, Red
Dress - Ivalde, Gertie Rose
Skin - Fleur Allure Truffle Lounge 3
Hair - Ingenue ~ Leading Lady ~ Cinnamon

In honor of this orange time of year, I couldn't resist showing this one off.

This lovely dress is incredibly feminine. What a great combination of colors. The many oranges and yellows are sure to put you in the mood for fall. I must say, the highlights in the hair and the rich darker color of the shoes make this look a keeper!

Tonight, I'm in the mood for some roleplay. I, Rachel Boram plan to dress like a man and pick up my sweetie (Kairos) who will be dressed as a woman. The object of the game is simple - He seems to always attracts a certain type of woman. Seems I was the one exception. I plan to role play him and show him how he enables that type of behavior in a woman.

So keep your fingers crossed that I don't mess this one up:)

For those of you who have not made your evening plans - check out these places:

Wein - This will go in my new people places. Yesh, like shopping at a flea market with tons of give-a-ways.
Ice Age - a nice little romantic place to dance.

The Crack Den - Mature Role Play for those who play dangerously

Have you had a chance to check out all your hunt goodies yet? I slipped on this one and absolutely squealed with delight! Talk about a great Halloween freebie....

This one is from the Retrology Hunt:

Thanks you soooo much to Betty Doyle at Ingenue. I am finally into the Halloween spirit.

The cosy sweater sets the season... and the orange petticoat gives it all such a festive playful look.

Every once-in-awhile, I'll find something (not fashion) that catches my eye. Take a peek at the two smaller photos. This is such a great sculptie pumpkin set. You can place them individually or as a set. Wish I had made them. Honestly, I was using 120 prims on Vignette for a small pumpkin patch. This set is only 13 prim...and copies...for the most luscious pumpkins ever!

The tree (comes from the same shop), comes with the pumpkin set beneath it..and the it has tiny lights coming from it(all for only 15 prims).

Hair - >FD Hair< (Frangipani), Josephine - Copper
Dress - Retrology pumpkin hunt - Ingenue pumpkin (freebie - it's worth the hunt!)
Shoes - Maitreya Slinky Stiletto, black
Manicure - The Body Politik, Deep Orange Peel, (If Polly is reading this, please update the lm in your profile, I seem to keep landing in the back under a building..pretty pleeease)
Stockings - Dark Grey Seamed Stockings by INSOLENCE, (with a sweet seam up the back)
Skin - Curio :GP: Radiance-Russet, this one plays up those rich copper autumn colors)

Pumpkins - New Trails -
Tree Set - New Trails - I think this was a nifty gift, it showed up in my pocket about 30 min after I joined the group:). If, thanks! I must admit, I spent some $L there:)

So now that I'm feeling all girlie girl let's go snoop out more Haunted Houses on the grid:)

Busy Busy Busy

Woohoo - SALE at Ivalde with 50% off everything black /very dark and 5 black outfits are only 50L and 6 are only 100L

Well, heck! I dropped everything and ran over there!!

Much to my dismay, 53 other women beat me there. *Sighs* Ok, so I removed my witches hat and candy filled Jack-O-Lantern and inched my way in. Slowest crawl ever...really.

Certain colors are absolute favorites of mine and black is right at the top. No way was I going to not fight my way through that crowd! I picked up tons of great things and this dress was only $200L. The hat was separate and is absolutely perfect.

I could so easily see myself fitting in as a governess or young widow at a role-playing sim. Sort of Jane Eyre like. Hey - I could get into that one ....but I think I need period glasses and a book in my hand.

Vintage is MORE than Fashion!

Yup - I am a lazy woman.

Someone asked if I sold my houses and I thought dang, i should. So I've added a few things to slexchange and boxed up the structures for sell at the Vignette model homes.

So am am posting these three which are now for sale.

First is the old vintage art deco movie theater, the Romana - the boxed set is mod/copy and has some sweet seats in the theater with lots of different poses. Stop by and chick it out or take a peek on slexchange.

Second is a 1920's kit home inspired by the Sears (Walton's Rest). This one will remind you of summers at grandma's when you were a kid.

Third is Summer Delight which is also inspired by the old 1920's - 30's kit homes. Check out all that incredible detail for only 111 prim - can't beat that!

For model homes:

Romana - and on slexchange
Walton's Rest - and on slexchange
Summer Delight - and on slexchange

So head over and poke about!
