Hello,

I am asking for help to find good quality attire and hair (ESPECIALLY HAIR!) that is 1950s, retro, vintage, pin up, rockabilly, bombshell themed. I especially love mesh items! Please only answer if you know of GREAT QUALITY items. Attached I have posted pictures of what I mean by good quality items. I can't seem to find them anywhere. I have also tried searching keywords on SL market place and get a few nice finds with mainly a bunch of low quality items. I'm crossing my fingers here and hope I get a little help. Thanks!

Yeah... searching for somethings is way too difficult. Era clothing is one of them. 

Few designers have added any era, year info to their promotional stuff. Making it hard for any search engine and I think SL's search is a weaker one. 

But, there are a few designers that do. You can try Jo Yardley's 1920's Berlin regions. Shops there are focused  on 1920's stuff. But, they aren't that precise. So, I think you'll find stuff that will work. Also, try http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Shepham Estates/98/240/22

Some of my favorites :)

Truth Hair:

For more hair, I'd recommend stopping by Elikatira, they have a lot of vintage, retro looking hair.

The Secret Store

They have a lot of items in the in-world store, and some aren't on the MP, so it's worth having a look. They came out with a new 50s, 60s bikini a while back that not on the MP yet.

SUGAR (not sure if most stuff would work, but the leather jacket might - quality of this store varies though)

I think you might also find some good clothes at Blueberry (tied blouses and jeans, mostly), Decoy (I know they have a vintage, 50s looking dress called Crisp dress) and Lapointe&  Bastchild (jeans, leather jackets, boots).

Good luck :)

hello, well people in the 50s didn't wear tops like you have on , I also am looking for a Monroe look, find most things are not made for mesh bodies so I am having a hard time

I bought a hair from DOUX that is called Marilyn, it has her look ( a 50s look) bought skin and shape that give her facial look somewhat. Just need to add the dark lipstick and a mole.

Since I am after the glamorous look of Monroe, I am just buying formals, until I find a one piece suit they wore back then. Even glamorous stars wore one piece suits. 

 

Wish more designers would make clothes for our mesh bodies that would fit into the time period of 50s and 60s too.

Monroe look

GAS Clothing Company has a dress that is actually called "Marylin" - fits like a glove on my Venus and Skink (well, GAS is among the better creators for no-alpha-fit). @Rena Kelberwitz - you also can search MP for "50s" (without quotes, as in 50s AND mesh - this will get you a lot, also.
