This week I’ve been having lots of fun playing with a photo editing program and as a result, I decided to dedicate this blog to classic black and white photography showing some fashion through the ages.

So I start by taking you back to the medieval era and to a classic dress by the amazing Bee Dumpling at The White Armory.  I did some exploring in SL to find a medieval sim to take the photo and found the perfect place at Evensong.  To complete this look I added earrings by Virtual Impressions, a tiara by Alienbear and shoes by Madison’s Creations.

Next we visit the 1920’s when art deco and flapper dresses were all the rage.  It was also known as the roaring twenties.  For this vintage photo I found the perfect dress, again by The White Armory.  I took this photo on location in SL in Paris standing in front of the Arc de Triomphe.  It’s quite fitting, especially as Paris is a very special place for Luchi and I.

My final visit on this vintage tour is to the 1960’s and a very aptly named dress, Miss Sixty by Sascha’s Designs.  Released last year as a 60L item, throughout the summer, Sascha released more dresses in different colours and with different style cocktail skirts.  They proved to be very popular and the classic black and white dress is my favourite.

I hope you’ve enjoyed these photos.  I am busy working on my to add to my vintage collection.  I will be posting some more in my Flickr page soon and I have also been approached by a lovely lady, Adele Kling who is going to display my vintage work in her gallery in March.  I will keep you posted with the date and location in due course.

In the meantime, I hope you all have a good week.
