Hey dolls! I know you saw my recent post about my new SourPuss “Thrill-a-Rama” dress because the feedback was awesome! So I figured since I love it so much and I love you guys so much, I should probably do a giveaway ;). One of you lucky dolls will win this Coney Island dress from Sourpuss and all you have to do comment and tell me why you should win and log on to Polyvore.com and give me your theme-park pin-up look inspired by the image above. Don’t forget to paste the URL of your polyvore look in the comment or your entry will not count. The dress is a size medium and the contest will end 08/10/12.
Whoaaae wwwhhoaa wwwhoaaa! Sourpuss is my newest obsession for vintage inspired threads and accessories. You dolls know I am a sucker for anything rockabilly so I was pleased to find a shop that gives me my weekly dosage of rockabilly goodness at reasonable prices. What really anchored my interest was their Coney Island dresses and accessories. I am heavily inspired by Coney Island history so I love anything and everything pertaining to the subject. I have never seen CI dresses and accessories like this before and was so excited I had to get my hands on a few pieces. I snagged a dress and a makeup bag IMMEDIATELY, have worn the hell out of it ever since, and couldn’t be more satisfied and happy..So much so, I see myself going into severe debt within the next few weeks. I love the vintage Tillie Steeplechase Coney Island print of this dress and the cute contrasts of the flaps over the bust. I also love that this dress is comfortable and a little shorter than most of my dresses so I look a bit taller ;). It comes in green, coral, and blue but coral was my definitely my color and of course I had to have the makeup bag, I plan to even wear it as a clutch! Check it out!
It was a warm day in Brooklyn for a bad girl so I put on my Bernie Dexter cigarette pants, my Super Trash pleather jacket, my vintage cat-eye glasses, Betsey Johnson fingerless gloves, and drenched myself in Classic Hardware jewelry. LA bad girl, Karyn Cantor, is the mastermind behind the ornate and beautiful jewelry of Classic Hardware. She is an all around artist who teaches photography, jewelry design, metal art, video production and the history of rock ‘n roll. Karyn is dominating the jewelry game with her broad knowledge of everything art and music. I was referred to her online shop by a friend and was immediately enamored by the rockabilly and pinup artwork used in her designs. Her shop features a variety of accessories like pins, necklaces, bracelets, lockets, cufflinks, rings and more. She even sells the artwork she features in her designs. Her rebellious pinup images and eerie dark ornate ships and seahorses deemed my favorite. She offers high quality jewelry and more for the belle of the ball or the bell of the brawl and what makes her stuff even better is that pinch of humor she adds to many of her pieces. I was fortunate to get my hands on a few and felt today was a good day to sport them. These attention grabbing pieces were the talk of Brooklyn and if Rizo was current she’d have to step aside.
