A Little Bit of Style by Zoe Demar in Retro Betty


I thought I would have some fun and put a twist on the blog a bit by using an animated gif style.  I picked up this Marina dress awhile back from Kunglers, simple but retro feel to it with the color block style.  It is a mesh dress - and I believe most people are using mesh viewers, but I'll keep putting that disclaimer in just in case.  

The newest heels that I'm sporting from Celoe are also mesh.  If you're like me - it is not always easy to color match from looking at a box - it would be nice if we could have some sort of color previewer.  It would be nice if more designers could offer some sort of preview other than the demo as to what exact shade the item is.  I find that teal can be on the greener side or the bluer side to different people.  I hate it when I end up spending a fortune to only find that the shade wouldn't work with an outfit.  It is fine to have a blend, but sometimes I really just want something to match perfectly.  

The cute hair, coincidentally also named Marina, by Truth is pretty new too.  I thought it was pretty cute - reminds me a bit of the Thelma from Scooby-Doo.  The bow is scripted with a good selection of colors.

The skin is Betty by Belleza, featured at the vintage fair - which if you haven't been - you need to go at least once!  I am wearing the pale tone in make-up 5.  As always, Tricky has a ton of make-up to choose from, so have fun getting creative!

And to anchor in the look, I pulled out some Twisted Bracelets by Erratic.  It is scripted colors.  Again, not matchy matchy with the purple, but this look is much more about tonal purple than matchy matchy so I wasn't gonna push it.

I also noticed that this is my 201st blog post.  I'm not one of the blog every day type of people, especially when I'm working full time, but it's pretty cool still to think about it.  I originally got into blogging when I started to model with FACES agency waaay back when.  When the blog shut down I decided to do it for my personal fun and still enjoy it!  Hopefully you like it too!


Love, Zoe

Zoe's Quick Pick - Pink Ladies

Again I find myself in an array of too much awesome stuff on the grid to have the time to blog it all without making it a full time job!

Here is a quick highlight from the Vintage Fair.  It took me awhile to go through all the sims because there was sooo much stuff - but this I just had to blog about first!


I saw the Pink Ladies Jacket by House of {TORN} and HAD to have it!  The jacket also comes in black with pink lettering.  This is not sold as an outfit but two pieces...the jacket is one and the Sandy bodysuit is another - which also comes in black (shown) or pink.  The hair from Wasabi Pills (also from the Vintage Fair) worked out PERFECTLY to show off the back nicely!!

There are 3 sims to check out, and if you start and one end, it will lead you through until you get to the other end - which makes it easier to stay on track - but there is a lot to check out, so you might want to come back for multiple visits if you don't have a lot of time.

In the main map, do a search for the sim named Retro or Classic as these are the two ends.  The CHIC sim is the middle portion. (here's a quick slurl to a good starting point on Retro sim - SLURL)


Love, Zoe
