I am a total sucker for fruit prints. I’m talking lemons, pineapples, watermelons, and everything else that reminds me of Carmen Miranda or the caribbean. Recently The Pretty Dress Company released a lemon print wiggle dress and I had to have it!
You guys know I love TPDC. They have become a huge part of my wardrobe because their dresses never disappoint. I love a company who’s quality and designs match the prices of their garments. Every piece is tailored to perfection and fits me like a dream. This silhouette is different from the other dresses I have and it was still a hit. I wore it to lunch with friends at Lake Las Vegas and styled it with a vintage hat, Bow and Crossbones vintage inspired bangles and earrings, a vintage purse, and some simple Christian Louboutin black peep toe pumps. I added flowers to the sides of my hat to match the dress too!
Even though the year has just begun, I have a feeling this is one of those outfits will go down as one of my favorites this year. Thankfully my friend Daniel had his camera as he always does when we hang so we got some good outfit shots. I have to thank his wife Rhiannon (one of my other best friends) for helping me not fly away this day. It was so windy!
I have a very vivid imagination and like most artists, I try to make my life a work of art. Reality is dull and boring to me. Sounds morbid, I know but…to me, there is not enough magic in the world. There’s not enough fantasy. I think that’s why I have always been a fan of “Alice in Wonderland”. I have always had this fascination with surrealism and things that don’t necessarily make sense. As a kid, I found myself wishing I was Alice pretty often despite being a hardcore Ariel fan haha. I wanted so badly for something magical to happen to me. I think this is why I am so passionate about fashion. It is a way of escape for me. I’m able to transform my look and create art with the way I put things together.
2 years ago, I was on tumblr when I stumbled across one of the most beautiful dresses I have ever seen but it had no information on where to find it. I saved the image in my computer for years..and like magic, it reappeared on my instagram where I discovered Chotronette. All of their dresses are couture-like pieces that are handmade to perfection and I can’t believe that after years of lusting after this dress, it is now mine. Now that, is MAGIC. So I took it upon myself to do a shoot with DMR Depictions inspired by Alice in my new favorite dress and I can’t believe how ethereal these images look. <3. Read More
I’ve been wearing lots of Vixen by Micheline pieces as of late but you can’t blame me, the girl’s got great items that fit well for a pint-sized curvy girl like me like her leopard Trouble Maker dress. I swear I didn’t want to take it off because not only is it sexy but its comfortable too. I got myself a small but could have easily fit into an Extra Small but the small fit fine too and hugged me in all the right places. I love it when retro brands create clothes that compliment a girls curves. Curves are always something to celebrate! I also love the Vixen pencil skirts and Bad Girl tops, those fit me perfectly too! I wore both of these outfits last month and they were such a hit. I can’t wait to see what else Micheline has in store for her awesome new brand.
I know Christmas is over but I am delayed on posts so I wanted to share with you some cute images Daniel of DMR Depictions shot of me and Angus (that cute Scottie!) at my friend Mike & Jade’s (@Shramek_art & @Jaedemansfield) amazing Mid Century home! It was such a fast and fun shoot to do and Angus was such a great model! I wore a vintage red dress, a rhinestone hairpiece, bracelet, and matching earrings. I also wore my vintage leucite heels. My hair was styled into a faux bob (this style takes forever with my long hair) and though I wish I could do a tutorial, it’s not something I have quite perfected yet. Anyway, take a look at the photos! Read More
Here’s another fun but short outfit post of what I wore when my Mom was in town a few weeks ago (miss you mom!). It was feeling super girly and 1960s on this day so I wore a cute behave style bun with a vintage bow headpiece that had netting, a vintage sweater that had pearls all over it, a top shop satin baby blue skirt, Louboutin nude heels, a vintage sweater and purse, and some jumbo pearl earrings. The outfit was completely perfect from head to toe (I love when that happens)! I’d say its one of my favorite outfits to date. ❤ Read More
