Vintage Fair 2012: The Scoop

Wow!  Vintage Fair starts in one day and it's bigger than ever.  Hang on a sec and I will get to ALL the info, links and other information you are going to need to be armed and ready.  Mesh is a big deal at the fair.  Last year mesh was just in it's early stages and I was one of those poor souls who could not operate on a viewer that supported mesh.  I'm still stuck with my old computer but thanks to updates I'm good to go. Sadly, my inventory might just throw up since I have no time to sort but sometimes sacrifices must be made.  I have become a mesh nut, especially it's ability to move with you.  The freaking adorable mesh dress from coldLogic is one of my favorite outfits at the fair.  The details are simple yet perfect with it's sweet little pointed flat collar to the perfect placement of the dropped belt between the waist and hips. You can see the light texture details in the photo below to see how much consideration goes into the dress.  It's these kinds of details that make an outfit one that is worn again and again.  It was perfect for my high school look but also can easily go stylishly mod.
The Vintage Fair is not just clothes, though clothes there are in abundance.  I've been trying to sort my review items into folders and I keep having to make new ones.  I love Aeva's Phoebe skin. It's a nice combination of innocence yet as a strength to it that gives it character.  It comes with all the usual bells and whistles that Amesha Jewell (who also owns Heartsick) always generously provides, like teeth, a complete set of hair bases, a shape (not worn), boob bouncer, freckles and lots of cleavage options.  Wasabi Pills made this perfect ponytail for August's FaMESHED event.  Sylvie, immensely versatile, is rigged mesh but I had no problem with fitting, even around the ears.  It see it as an inventory staple.
One of the cutest props at the fair is nani's hanging at the diner item.  Weighing in at only 2 prims, it has  4 cute poses, all of which are xyz adjustable.

OK, now scoop.  Vintage Fair 2012, sponsored by Chic Management, makes this the fair's second year.  This year features pre-1920's to the 1980's and each designer has provided new and exclusive releases. I love it so much I practically skipped down the streets of the stylish mesh build made by Cory Edo of Trompe Loeil.  The fair will run from August 4th - August 29, so there is lots of time to shop.  The 3 sim event is intelligently planned so that it snakes along, so no getting lost or missing a shop if you start at one end and work your way to the other.  The link above will give you maps, slurls that take you directly to each and every store and if you touch the map it will magnify the information.  Event sponsor stores are highlighted in yellow.  Those stores are Aura, Belleza, Cheeky Pea, coldLogic, Gizza Creations, Indyra Originals, PurpleMoon Creations, oOo Studio and Trompe Loeil.  Once you've shopped til you've dropped join the HUGE flickr competition with flipping amazing prizes.  That link will give you all the information about the flickr group and insane prizes.  See you at the fair!
