There was an old, old house renewed with paint,
And in it a piano loudly playing.
~ Robert Frost
Shiny Shabby opens today and with it, a whole lot of great shiny and hardly shabby items, all made for this event that relies on the theme of vintage and gently used items. Miffyhoi Rosca is a natural creator for these event, and she has made a darling long mesh dress with a calico print, belted at the waist with wonderful puffed sleeves. Paired with a matching headpiece and Shaleene Kenin’s darling sandals (which I realize you can barely see but they are darling, trust me), the look is vintage.
The fair is chock full of the kind of shabby chic furniture people love in SL. This piano from Agustov includes a passel of great poses, including this piano playing animation (that went rhythmically with the Radiohead I was listening to when I shot the photos, though the vision and sounds didn’t quite match). Tab Tatham made my lovely white pieces, part of a set of intriguing decor items which include this wiry plant. They are mod, so they can be tinted. My mesh chair, from AptB, includes tons of texture change options for different parts of the chair, so you purchase one chair and can redecorate over and over with a few clicks. Instead of having to choose an entire look, you can mix and match metals, woods, even the two different chair cushions, and everything has that wonderful burnished look.
Umazuma Metaluna is releasing a new skin for Shiny Shabby, this delicate, winsome skin with a subtle blush and her wonderful Intensity Lip system, which allows for custom tinting. Truth Hawks must have known that vintage pretty would come calling because his latest release was a perfect match for this look with its gentle waves and beautiful roll to the back. Katya Valeska made two sets of poses for the fair, including a couple you see in these photos.
