If you are coming down for VIVA LAS VEGAS, do not miss your chance to be a part of this very special event by Lars Kommienezuspadt (@Kommienezuspadt)!
Friday, April 3rd I will be joining/co-hosting Lars K. for a Viva Las Vegas exclusive OPEN LIGHT: Modeling, Posing and Etiquette workshop. This is one workshop of many as Lars has held this particular workshop from NYC to LA with co-hosts such as Rivi Madison, Chad Moon and Jim Gavenus. All of which were a complete success and great learning experience for his students! The class is open to photographers, models, make-up artists and hair stylists.
In addition to dynamic positioning and camera interaction from both model and photographer, we’ll be discussing professionalism, personal safety, responsibility and etiquette within the fashion and beauty industry. Register now with a deposit or in full by visiting MadeInEighty.com.
Lars has shot me a few times and each time has been an experience I’d never forget. He is incredibly talented in so many areas and his creativity shines within his work. Every time we shoot together I can pretty much guarantee that my images are going to look amazing and I feel really fortunate to have shot with him (he’s hella booked all the time haha). For those of you who haven’t seen the last images I shot with Lars, check them out inside. Just keep in mind, they are a little risqué. ;) Read More

It’s February and all I want to wear is RED! I love this month because duh….Valentine’s day! As you know from my most previous post about my PUG wish list, Vday is one of my favorite holidays. I’m the girl who goes to the dollar store and feels the need to stuff my cart with Valentine’s day decorations and candy all for myself. I want all the heart things haha. Anyway, in light of my favorite holiday, a few days ago I went to lunch with my girl Rihannon and wore a really cute red gingham dress I bought at The Attic here in Vegas. I bought it months ago but have been waiting for February to wear it because I am a weirdo haha. It actually ended up working out that I waited this long because I just got my hands on the coolest poodle brooch called “lady the leaping poodle” from a new company called Erstwilder! I purchased a bunch of really cool brooches from them for Pinup Girl Clothing so stay tuned. This Erstwilder prancing poodle brooch was the perfect finishing touch to one of my favorite outfits of the year thus far but I can’t leave out the others like my Tatyana red bow belt, Kate Spade wicker buggy purse, my vintage confetti lucite earrings, and my new Vivienne Westwood mules. Man, this was such a great outfit and I almost wore it without taking any photos at all! Luckily we snapped a few shots in my backyard just before the sun went down. I know these aren’t the best quality but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to document such a cute get-up! Read More
As the buyer of Pinup Girl Clothing, my job isn’t easy. I mean, everything I buy for PUG, I initially want to buy for myself. So basically, every week when we launch new and exciting products, my money just flies out of my pocket. I usually justify my purchases by thinking, well, I deserve it. I work hard, can’t a girl play hard too? This isn’t always the best idea but hell it makes me happy! haha. Anyway, I’ve come up with yet another reason why I should make another purchase..VALENTINE’S DAY. Yup, V-day, which is usually just a day people either love or hate. However, I absolutely LOVE Valentines day. I could careless if I have a Valentine or not (I don’t have one this year, please inquire for an application). Every year, on Valentine’s day or around Valentine’s day, I spoil myself rotten. They say self-love is the best love right? Why not spend V-day loving yourself if you have no one else? Exactly. See, my justifications for spoiling myself totally make sense. I have already started my shopping spree, little by little, crossing items off of my PUG wish list. I already bought myself an Agent Provocateur lingerie set which has become an annual thing but now I want a bunch of Pug goodies! I am almost positive many of you will agree with me on some of these items which is why I decided to do this post. Have a Valentine? Make sure he knows you’ve got a little wish list ;). No Valentine? No problem! Treat yo-self! Read More
There were a bunch of outfit posts I didn’t get the chance to publish last year so I am trying to catch up and still post them as a record of some of my favorite outfits. This one is from a few months ago. I found this psychedelic printed two piece at The Attic, a cool vintage/thrift store here in Vegas and I thought it was hella interesting so I tried it on and BOOM it was mine. The top is a crop top you can tie and the bottoms are palazzo pants! I love obscure and unique pieces and this one was just that. I think this is from the early 70s but I am not too sure. I am normally not too big of a fan of red, white, and blue together but I decided to let this ensemble pass and give it a nautical feel with some vintage sailor earrings & boat steer necklace, my wicker purse, gold bangles, clear vintage pumps, and my favorite vintage cat eye sunglasses. Basically, the whole outfit was vintage. I love when I do that! See images of the outfit inside <3 Read More
