Vintage rétrospectif – ‘the secret keeper’

While usually my style is more modern looking, it’s always a little bit retro/vintage inspired. Irl and in my country is not always easy to find second hand shops with great vintage or retro pieces, and when it doesn’t happen the best way to achieve that kind of ‘style’ is looking for what I’d call visually inspired pieces. You know, the kind that aren’t really vintage but look like it. However, in sl that’s all we have. So today that’s what I chose to put together. In this outfit I feel very feminine/girly and old fashioned looking, with a ‘modern’ twist. There are a few pieces I’d say they could be found in a second hand shop, like the corsage or the bag and the checkered ‘dress’. In fact they were real bargains. The check dress is very similar to a rl one I have called ‘the secret keeper’ by a french designer and it only cost me 12L. The corsage was only 15L so if we had anything similar to a thrift or second hand shop pieces these would probably be it. Now, in the last two posts I’ve been sporting different skins, this one was sent to me by Ai Baroque, owner of Lyriope skin and basically as soon as I tried it on, It didn’t feel like the typical glowy, over the top make up, I felt very comfortably natural with it. For me, skins are all about the face and this one just exhales ‘strong personality’, and has a somewhat androgynous expression to it. if that makes sense to you. Also, if you happen to check the store I got the checkered dress don’t expect much clothing, its basically a hair store and they’re all around 60L. Hope you like this look. ❤ Uma
