This blog post is jammed packed with awesome items from the Garage Fair and also something from the Thrift Shop. So where to begin... I will start with the awesome outfit I have put together.
This beautiful top I am wearing is the Lorelle Long Top and is a Garage Fair exclusive from Karla Boutique. This top is a long halter top with a beautiful floral lace fabric. The straps and waist band are made from a different floral lace of the same color. The waist band wraps around and under the back of the top which hangs lower than the front. The Lorelle Long Top is available in the grey color you see here and is made for five standard fitmesh/rigged sizes as well as for Maitreya and Slink.
I paired this lovely top with a pair of great leggings available at the Thrift Shop from Grumble. The fabric of these Omega Applier leggings is a small houndstooth pattern. I chose the grey to go with the top but there are six other colors available. Definitely a good staple to have in the inventory to go with long tops!
I wanted to feature some items available at the Garage Fair that weren't clothing related. The first item is an awesome skybox home called the City Loft from EnMeshed. I have never been really excited about skyboxes until I saw this one. I knew I liked this when I could envision what I could do to decorate it.
There is a patio area with a glass ceiling and a tile floor at the entrance of the skybox. Perfect for putting some outdoor patio furniture which I did (See below). The inside is really quite roomy. It has a wood floor, brick walls on the right and left and a plaster wall in the middle. There are black wood stairs that lead up to a loft area that has a black wood floor and an awesome patterned glass tile ceiling framed in dark wood. The pillars that hold up the loft area are really quite rich looking and match the door. The City Loft skybox takes up 22 prims which really isn't that much for such a rich warm looking place.
Enmeshed also has a cute patio set available at the Garage Fair that looks great in the patio area of the City Loft skybox. The set includes a clay fireplace with a warm fire blazing, a wrought iron table and a matching chair made of wood and wrought iron, and a planter that comes in two sizes with pink flowers as well (small one not pictured here). Everything in this set is copyable.
Some other furniture items from the Garage Fair that would go great in the skybox are from Q-Essentials and Munspain. Q-Essentials has some awesome area rugs and a cute fan that will add character to any space. The Havelland rug (pictured left) is grey with white diamonds pattern. the Nordis rug (pictured right) is also gray with an interesting pattern of round striped shapes. The Optimus Breeze floorfan has a black stand and white fan spokes.
Munspain has some shelving items that are great for displaying picture frames, flowers, etc. There are three sizes of cube shelves (Cube Shelf Set 1, Set 2, and Set 3) These shelves are on wheels and made of a distressed light colored wood. These shelf cubes are great by themselves or arranged together. There is also a wood shelf made of a light wood with silver brackets. These items are copyable so you can rezz as many as you need for your space.
