A Modern Vintage.

Vintage Fair 2012 is upon us + like last year, this event's concept of "vintage" spans not only what we traditionally think of as retro eras (the "Flapper Girl" styles of the Roaring '20s; the Art Deco geometric patterns, etc.) but also the casual, stylistically wacky looks of the '80s (legwarmers alert)! I also like how the sprawling 3-SIM build itself -- complete with cobblestone streets and uptown storefronts -- is tailored into an elegant place to shop for fresh, timeless ways to doll up your avi.
This gently scalloped, fluttery hemmed, knee-length dress embodies the feminine lines of classic "vintage" style, which I loved in this rich chocolate brown silk ('specially set off by cherry red lips). Dotted caramel sheer tights & a cream-colored, chain-strapped mini-purse by MS (a new designer for me), plus this week's new "Milly" long mesh style by Truth (the twin bobbypins add such a demure touch to this bangless style) finished this retro glam look.

For photogs, there's oodles of prizes in the annual Flickr contest that you can read more about here (+ you can sneak peeks at the photo entries here), including generous cash $L prizes up for the taking.

Many thanks to Keira Seerose, Catherine Fairport & the entire CHIC Management team for hosting yet another fantastic event. A modern vintage love + fashionista kisses to all!
