If I could go back in time, the one thing I would surely change is I would have made my “style” on the outside match the inside. I would have worked harder on my chub and got the figure I wanted so that I could totally rock the rockabilly, horror classic, retro chic look. Of course, I know I can still rock this look with my chub but, for me, it’s not the same, I want hour glass pin-up body, not victoria secret model skinny, mind you, they need a few cheeseburgers for my liking. I guess that’s why I love SL, or maybe that’s where the problem lies….My love for SL. Too busy playing with my doll and not enough getting out there and busting my ass to get the physical body I want. ANYWHO, back to SL, I can make my “doll” anything I want, I can channel my inner self onto her. And I do….often.

I bought one pair of these shoes originally, then found out you can mix and match through the huds. Sadly at the time I did not find the fatpack, and after buying 5 pairs I’m super tempted to ask to pay the difference and get the fatpack, they really are too much fun to play with.

Vintage Flowers

By Cajsa Lilliehook

I love orange, i love flowers and I love that soft retro blue – so how could I not love this dress? Ingenue specializes in vintage clothing and creatively uses some gorgeous retro prints. This dress has that lovely soft retro blue – like those old melmac plates my parents used for camping trips. I love that blue. It’s possible that if spiders were that color blue, I might even like spiders. 

I put it together with wonderful stone earrings, necklace and bracelet from Swallowtail. If you love big jewelry with natural stones, simple and organic jewelry, Swallowtail is a must. They also have adorable felt dresses unlike anywhere else. Besides, it’s so much fun to shop there. Be sure to give yourself time to wander out and see all the animals. I added the lovely Periquita shoes that always suit a retro dress. 

There are more photos on my flickr. Style notes after the jump. Continue reading
