Going Retro

11 04 2011

Somehow through the dense fog of my SL existence, I got wind of the fact that Elle1974 Zaftig is having a sale for her SIXTH rez day at her store b[ELLE]issima. (SIX YEARS! OMG.That’s like, ancient in human years.) Of course SL is almost 8 years old, so Elle is not “old”; she’s retro.

Going Retro

This darling dress from Elle74 Zaftig made me think of retro with its full skirt, corsage, and cute little bow on the shoulder. She has overlaid a red underskirt (for a little pop) with the pretty black and white print on top. Best of all, this dress is an exclusive for Fashion for Life. Even though the event is over, the fund-raising doesn’t end. Elle is generously featuring this on the front wall of her shop where there’s a sale going on (hint hint) for a mere 185L. (And it comes with sandals I don’t show here.)

Going Retro

I love this skin from Keiko Morigi because it’s got a sort of nostalgic quality in its hand-drawn qualities. I added an eyeliner from Aemeth Lysette to push that a little further and hair from Bubbles Clawtooth, who seems to have a corner on the sort of retro hair that modern girls want to wear.

My favorite is my charm bracelet and gingham shoes from Quinlan Quimby. Check out these little teapots!
