Patrick Nagel is one of my favorite artists of all time and was/is famous for his beautiful and colorful Art Deco stylized illustrations of women. Growing up in the 80’s I saw his works of art all over NYC in nearly every single nail salon in the Bronx, Brooklyn, and even Queens. Not a place I would like to see my art at but it became such a phenomenon for women who paid attention. You might also recognize his work if you are a Duran Duran fan as he designed their album cover… Read More
I’ve got a major sweet tooth for Fatally Feminine Designs jewelry. As a lover of all things sweet and tasty, I just couldn’t resist getting my hands on some of Aubree’s delicious handcrafted jewelry.

I am absolutely obsessed with Luxulite and her fabulous jewelry.

There is a necklace that matches and even a brooch but I didn’t want to wear them all together. I apologize for not having a pic of my entire outfit but lets be honest, my vintage top, cat eye sunglasses, and Luxulite Lobster earrings steal the show anyway!
In the 1950’s wicker purses or woven purses were really popular, like those made by the likes of Los Doradas. I am sure if you are a vintage lover like myself; you have come across these purses on ebay or etsy whilst searching for the perfect staple piece. Every vintage loving girl needs one as they practically match every sun-dress without fail. They look like small handheld picnic baskets with ribbons and decorative elements on top, like plastic or fabric fruits, flowers, and some even have poodle decorations (which are my personal favorite).
