Everybody knows, Saturday at Viva Las Vegas is the day you sport your hottest evening attire. It’s actually my favorite night to attend Viva because I get to see so many gorgeous gals in their sparkling vintage cocktail dresses. I was super stoked to finally wear my vintage style sari dress by @RedheadsVintage. I had been searching for a vintage one for ages and decided to just cave and get a brand new one made. However, the fabric may be vintage so this piece may still have a little history. Regardless, It was super fun to wear and though I wasn’t planning on channeling Princess Jasmin, the top photo above begs to differ. Canadian babes, Nisaan and Kassandra look like Belle and Aurora and I happen to look like Princess Jasmin lololol! I love happy accidents haha. Princess Jasmin is one of my favorite Disney princesses too so I was totally cool with this haha. Anyway, I wore my vintage leucite springolators and some beautiful Indian jewelry I bought back in NY years ago to match my dress. For a purse I wore a vintage gold clutch to match the gold accents on the dress. I wish I could have gotten better outfit shots but I was too busy meeting and greeting everyone that I only got to take a few. I love that I am able to see my friends from all over the world in one place during Viva. These nights are always unforgettable. Read More
It was the day of the VLV Car Show and I was ready to see all of the amazing classic cars and shop at the cool vendors. It was scorching hot so I may have chosen the wrong outfit as I was practically dying all day haha. However, It was certainly one of my favorite outfits of Viva. I wore a vintage 1960s floral print dress with a matching vintage straw hat, my Christian Lacroix lace up heels, my favorite vintage cat eye glasses, and an adorable wicker pig purse my friend gifted me from Mexico. It was such a fun outfit despite it being so hot outside haha. Since I was exhausted from the day before I decided to do a quick happy pompadour hair style that worked well with the hat. It was a really awesome day at the Car Show with my mom, sister, and my friends Janelle and Rhiannon. I also got to meet many of you so that was a major plus! The cars were incredible. I wish I could include all of the images we shot of the cars but then this would be a ridiculously long post and I try not to do those anymore haha. I had to separate this post into two so I will be posting my evening outfit in my next post. In the meantime, checkout all of the awesome photos we took of our day! Read More
Vivien of Holloway has become one of my absolute favorite retro brands for their gorgeous dresses and separates. I get a thrill every time I add one of their pieces to my wardrobe like this gorgeous gold leaf printed halter sarong dress with the matching Bolero. Not only is it sexy but its comfortable too! I love dresses that have matching boleros because I have lots of keloid scars on my back. Most of the time I don’t mind having them seen but its nice to have an option for the days I don’t feel so hot. However, I don’t think its even possible to feel “not so hot” in a dress like this. I mean, its gorgeous! I felt fabulous! I love that sarong dresses don’t exactly suffocate your hips as much as wiggle dresses do but you still get that hourglass shape. I wish I could buy them all as this VOH dress comes in a variety of colors and patterns but hey..at least I got my hands on this one! I wore it while shopping the other day before having drinks with my friends at Frankie’s Tiki Bar. I kept my accessories simple since the dress has a busy pattern so I just wore my patent black mules, vintage gold hoop earrings, some bamboo bangles, a wicker clutch, and a cute vintage pineapple brooch. I was in my element! Read More
I discovered The Pretty Dress Company last year and have been enamored with their gorgeous dresses ever since. Their elegant selection of dresses are enough to make any woman swoon (guys too, apparently!). I especially love that their dresses compliment the silhouettes of curvy girls like myself. I swear, I haven’t seen their dresses look bad on any shape or size. Go on, just take a look at their instagram @theprettydress. You will see tons of great images from all of their customers who are all shapes and sizes.
I recently got my hands on a few of their dresses and nearly fainted when I got them in the mail. The ever-so-enchanting Fatale Cream Pencil Skirt dress I am wearing here at Green Valley Ranch is my absolute favorite (it was hard to choose though!). It’s a romantic piece and certainly a wonderful part of my dress collection. I now feel like I need it in black in both the pencil fit and the circle skirt style. I have to also rave about the high quality of their fabrics and design. Lord only knows I hate when companies dress up faulty products you end up being disappointed with once you get it in the mail. I can assure you that you get exactly what you pay for with Pretty Dress; high quality gorgeous dresses. I wore this stunning dress all day and was super comfortable and I can’t tell you how amazing it made me feel just wearing it. I love it when clothing has that effect on people.
It was an easy dress to accessorize despite being a show stopper. Sometimes an extravagant piece can be hard to style around but this one was fun. I created my own floral arrangement with bobby pins to match the roses on the dress, wore pearl earrings and bangles, and my candy apple red Christian Louboutin shoes. My clutch was also adorned with pearls but I forgot to take a photo of it.
