There are very few eras in fashion that I really don’t like (I didn’t think I’d ever come to be nostalgic for the clothing of the 1980’s but even those styles now appeal to me again). So it comes as no surprise that I love finding Vintage styles in SL…vintage from just about any era. While checking out the sales on Second Style Island this last weekend, I came upon a lovely dress at Ingenue in a beautiful rose pink. And while searching to find bottoms for some of the great tops I’d picked up at the Black and Blue Fair (see note below), I found this great batik skirt on XStreetSL.com. The designer has a number of similar skirts at very reasonable prices.

Note on the Black and Blue Fair-I understand there was some controversy this weekend over whether or not people misunderstood and believed that it was a fund-raising event for charity. I apologize for any misconception my own posts may have caused. In regards to the one mental health charity that I did highlight, please note that there was an item at the fair which spotlighted this charity (the To Write Love on Her Arms tattoo). I simply wanted to take the opportunity to also spotlight this (IMO) very worthy group. There was information about other groups at the fair as well (like the hotlines) but this was done (at least, I think this was done) in a very low key informational manner.
I hope that the effort to raise awareness about mental health issues will continue in Second Life. I would love to also see fundraisers for groups like To Write Love on Her Arms!
