MY Vintage Fair …. FINALLY….

I am a vintage clothing freak in SL.. I love vintage and I have the full closet to prove it. So, when I heard about the Vintage Fair I could hardly contain myself. I took my time… perused the many shops … and bought a few things… and for my VERY FIRST Vintage Fair Post…. you get… this classic look from Jador Fashions.

Make It Quick


I am going to make this quick because I have friends on their way over shortly. Here’s another fabulous item from the Platinum Hunt – a super-sexy dress from Magoa. While we all have seen dresses with a similar open-work style, it’s really cool to see it in a print.

Let's Burn Down the Cornfield


Randy Newman’s “Let’s Burn Down the Cornfield” is one of my favorite songs thanks to its stunning emotional power. Truly great songs are covered a lot – and often produce great covers.  When I hear the original with Randy Newman and Ry Cooder, it’s all about lust and obsession. Alex Taylor’s version is menacing, dangerous and powerful. When I hear Etta James perform, it seems anthemic, a metaphor for revolution. Lou Rawls is pure rebellious jazz eroticism. Charles Musselwhite makes a scary spine-chilling blues number with guitar licks that seem to hunt you down. Then there’s The Walkabouts who didn’t understand the song at all and turned it into pop treacle.

Let’s burn down the cornfield
Let’s burn down the cornfield
And we can listen to it burn


The vibrant fires in the dress come from the inimitable Marni Grut of Royal Blue.

You hide behind the oak tree
You hide behind the oak tree
Stay out of danger ’til I return


I love how well the necklace from Paper Couture plays off the colors in the dress. The earrings from Mandala coordinate in both color and mood for a really hot look.

Oh, it’s so good
On a cold night
To have a fire
Burnin’ warm and bright


The shoes are also from Paper Couture and make the fires in the dress pop.

You hide behind the oak tree
You hide behind the oak tree
Stay out of danger ’till I return


The hair is from Lelutka, a new release called Brigitte. It can set fires on its own. Add the heat of Verve's Ina in sunblush and you have an inferno.

Let’s burn down the cornfield
Let’s burn down the cornfield
And I’ll make love to you while it’s burning


This cornfield is at Hollow Hill and you note I keep a bit of distance so my hot, hot dress doesn't make it spontaneously combust.

99 Luftballons

Well, not quite 99 luftballons. But there are enough balloons in the What Next Platinum Hunt gift to carry you away. With individual and couples poses, it is even enough to carry you to the next store in this second annual hunt from Chic Management.

What Next

Here I am, ready to be carried away with this lovely dress from Nemesis for the Platinum Hunt. The dress is a gorgeous linen in a fatpack of pastel colors. The jewelry is from Kunglers.

What Next

My lighter than shoes are from Baiastice – a few years old, but still an old favorite.

What Next

The hair is from Exile for the Platinum Hunt. Also part of the hunt is the skin from Verve. Verve is the new combined brand for AtomicSparkle, Swansong and Evoke.
