Two months ago I was in NY for a week for my Birthday. It was an extremely busy time for me so there were a few outfits I shot that I never posted on my blog. This one was one of my favorites though it’s a little more on the casual side. I wore a two-piece burgundy (it looks red in photos) top and pants set I found at Buffalo exchange with some cool boots, a leather jacket, my favorite Bailey’s fedora, and my Kate Spade purse. I love two-piece sets because they are easy to throw on and go. All you have to do is accessorize and bam, you have an outfit.
On this day I was out shopping in Brooklyn with my mom. Its our thing every time I visit NY. We just HAVE to go thrifting. Its our favorite thing to do and what better way to shop than with your best friend (my mom). It’s even better when my sister is with us because then I have another set of eyes to help me figure out if that ostrich feathered floor length yellow coat looks horrendous on me ;) (it did). It was good times as always and every time I thrift shop without my mom and my sis here in Las Vegas, I feel incomplete. Wah! See more images of my outfit inside.
For years I have searched for the perfect puffer coat. I finally came across a cool one about 5 years ago by Marios Schwab but it was out of my budget. It was worth the wait because, finally, years later, I discovered Ginger Jackie Tailor Shop and her FABULOUS puffer coats (and clothing!) thanks to one of my favorite stylish lady’s on instagram, Amanda of Butchwax Vintage. Ginger Jackie had the most beautiful puffer coat I had ever seen that embodied my style completely (I love anything unconventional!). It was sleek, chic, and not bulky and weird-looking like most puffer coats and she designed it in both red and in black. Of course I had a hard time choosing which color I wanted but went with the red since it was a more bold choice. However, I plan to buy the black too after witnessing the quality and warmth of my red one. It is seriously one of my most favorite pieces in my wardrobe and I get stopped everywhere when I wear it. The other day I sported it around Town Square in a very Parisian-like-manner and shot some images. Check them out inside to see how I styled my new favorite coat.
Hey gals! My newest tutorial is now live and this one will teach you how to trim, cut, and style your own Bettie Page bangs. After years of cutting my bangs at a salon and having them never really get them right, I decided to take things into my own hands. Now for the past 4 years I have been cutting my bangs myself and styling them myself too. I am still learning different ways on how to pull them back when I get tired of them and/or give the illusion of not having bangs at all (tutorial on that coming soon). Anyway, check it out and let me know how my tutorial works for you and check out my previous tutorial on Bettie Page waves while you are at it ;) <3.
Around Christmas time every year I come to Lake Las Vegas with friends to see the giant Christmas tree and the gorgeous view of Montelago Village. We also love to eat at the restaurants there. Feeling festive, I wore my new ruby-red Vivien of Holloway “Jezebel” dress in true Xmas-fashion with my Nic Coco Creations snowflake hair piece. I also wore my Christian Louboutin Candy Apple Red pumps, my Karen Millen Swarovski clutch, some cute vintage red confetti lucite earrings, and a faux fur red coat I got from the Attic vintage shop. Vivien of Holloway has become one of my FAVORITE retro brands and I fear my closet will be full of her dresses this new year. I felt like a true Classic Hollywood Starlet in the Jezebel dress and never wanted to take it off. Luckily one of my friends is a photographer and he brought his camera so I was able to document my outfit without having to use my iPhone haha. Its getting harder and harder to document my outfits these days without having my family around, they used to take my photos all the time haha. It’s cool though, luckily I have friends who help me out here and there. The images Daniel took were nothing short of amazing as per usual and I am so exited to share some of them with you here! <3 Read More
I have been feeling very festive this month and am totally in the Holiday spirit so I’ve been wearing tons of fun outfits to fit the theme. The other day I wore an awesome red ensemble for an early Christmas party and everyone loved my skirt! I have been eyeing this (Trixie) skirt for a while on the Bernie Dexter website because I really love the print and I am so glad I finally have it! I believe it’s called the BBQ print and it has a matching top. Bernie also has a dress in this print but I love that I can be more versatile with the skirt by pairing it with different tops. My top is by Pinup Girl Clothing and it’s called the Lauren Top. I have them in all colors because they look good with everything haha. To add a little contrast I added a red belt over the skirt and wore some black patent mules. I kept it simple with the jewelry by wearing some confetti leucite vintage clip on earrings in red.
