Baroque Beauty

So, when I initially saw this month's Collaber88 collection I wasn't all that keen. I thought the colour's were too dark, too bold and that I wouldn't be able to work a look out of it. However, I went and had a look anyway and picked up some really nice pieces, which when put together, I thought look really stunning! Hope you do too!

Oh, and I've been playing around with different effects on fotoflexer, and thought this effect looked good and wanted to show it you!

Sixties Doll

Here's yet another look from the Vintage Fair, this time inspired by the gorgeous Rita dress that is available from Dilly Dolls' stall at the Fair. This dress is colour change, and I love it for the the bright, vivid colour's that are available. In this photo I am wearing the White dress with yellow checks, which I have paired with the oh-so adorable Dasha pumps, also from Dilly Dolls. These pumps are also colour change, as are the cute lil skulls on the sides of them. Dilly Dolls was a last minute inclusion into the Vintage Fair, and I think Oriana has out-done herself by making these items for the Fair with such short notice!

Also worn in this photo is the essences Indy/ RosePale skin, which I am wearing with the Kyoto make-up from Black Liquid.

The cute furniture in this pic is available from Sway's stall at the fair, and is just perfect for all your retro redecorating needs! It comes in a multitude of colour's, sure to suit any taste.

The Vintage Fair is now OPEN to the public, and runs until the 29th August, so you have plenty of time to head over there and look around. Take a look at the Chic Management blog for map and slurls.

Vintage Fair Shoot-out!

There was trouble down at the Vintage Fair. Hoards of fashion-crazed broads descended onto the streets of the Fair desperate to get their hands on the latest fashion bargains! A fight broke out between the seperate fashionista gangs. Amidst the chaos a blood-curdling scream was heard. I ran down the cobble-paved street, towards the sound, my gun ready to fight off the masses. I rounded a corner and there, down the dimly-lit alleyway was the screamer. A woman who looked like she had been poured into her dress, a simple red scarf tied around her neck, which did nothing to hide her breast-line. She took my breath away, and for a moment I almost forgot why I was there.

"Mister, mister... there's a... a..." then she lost her composure and vomited on the ground. Just behind her, there was a body. Damn she was a looker. Shame about the bullet in her head. I reached into my inside pocket and took a swig out of the whiskey flask I kept there for times like these. Now to find out who killed her, and why. Was she an innocent victim caught up in the Vintage Fair crossfire, or was it a premeditated kill, covered up by the ensuing chaos?

Vintage Fair Preview!!

omg I am so excited right now! I was lucky enough to get invited to the Vintage Fair 2012 early access group!! There are, as usual, so many wonderfully vintage things available at the fair, which does not open to the public til August 4th, that I'm sure this will be my first post, but not my last on the event!

I absolutely LOVE this dress from Sleeping Koala, it is sooo cute, and brought to me visions of yesteryear, when the roller disco was the height of coolness. So I strapped on my skates and headed down to the roller rink!

The skin I'm wearing in these pics is one of the newest faces from Aeva/ Heartsick, which will be available for everyone at the Vintage Fair when it opens on August 4th. I absolutely LOVE this face, the make-up is so beautifully done and complements the skin and the vintage theme perfectly.

All pictures were taken at Sn@tch.
