VINTAGE VANDALIZM

Batter Up Baby Doll

Lars Kommienezuspadt knows exactly how to make me feel like a phoenix rising from it’s ashes and he knows how to capture my emotions in the mix (You can feel my energy in these images). I can’t tell you how important it is to work with people who just “get you”. This is why I am selective about the photographers I collaborate with.

We never miss a beat. Every single shoot we have done have been some of my best shoots. Every vision we think of, we create, seamlessly. For this shoot, I took inspiration from one of my favorite comic book characters, Veronica Lodge of Archie Comics. I wanted to be the bad girl version of Ronnie (even though she was never really an angel lol). Since I happen to resemble Veronica, I decided to do my own take on Ronnie’s character (The one who leaves Archie for Reggie 😉 ) in a custom Latex jacket and thong by the amazing Lady Lucie Latex. I had the varsity jacket stamped with a “V” which initially stands for Vintage Vandal but could stand for Veronica Lodge as well. I have to be honest, it was nerve wrecking (and out of my comfort zone) to be topless with just a jacket, thong, and heels but I had just went through a horrible breakup and ultimately ended up giving no fucks. I’m glad no fucks were given because the outfit was incredible. To compliment the style of the varsity outfit, I felt it was only right to pose on a High School baseball field (Don’t worry, school was closed and no kids were present) with a vintage baseball bat, you know, the one I chased Archie with ;P. Just kidding. But yeah, he’s buried under the bleachers. To add another element to this shoot, I also posed with a vintage car (Thank you Bobbi Jo!). Needless to say, the shoot was a grand slam and I can cross this idea off of my bucket list!

Ya’ll already know how much I love Secrets in Lace. I wear one of their pieces at least 4-5 times a week, be it a bra, garter, stockings, or my favorite…Their stretch satin high waisted thongs. I literally have them in every color and wear them almost every day in a variety of colors. It is so hard to find 80’s style high waisted thongs with a modern fit. They rest perfectly on my waist to accentuate my curvy shape. Not to mention, they also keep my baby gut in check when I have had way too many tacos lolol.

In the image above, for Pinup Couture shoes, I wore a Secrets in Lace set. Its my favorite set they have ever made and you can see how awesome their thongs lay on my waist. In this post, I also have other images of the other colors I have sported in the past month. I can’t help it, I love them! Read More

Lemon Meringue

I have officially fallen in love with Hearts & Found, a cute etsy shop that has a gorgeous selection of retro silhouettes you can customize in a variety of colors and prints! Considering that I don’t have enough yellow in my wardrobe, I ordered a yellow gingham tie top with a matching sarong skirt and this awesome lemon printed romper with a matching sarong skirt. My order was quick and painless and within just a week, I had my parcel in my hands.

As soon as I tried everything on, I wore one of the outfits the very next day lol. I have to say, its one of my favorite outfits of the year (I only say that in about every post lol). Can you blame me though? I just wanna live in this thing! It was the perfect day to wear it too. Not too hot and not too cold and I was hanging out with friends at Green Valley Ranch Casino, one of my favorite spots in Las Vegas. If you want the details on my accessories, I paired this playsuit with some vintage like my purse, hat, and shoes. My earrings and bangles are from Bow & Crossbones and my necklace is from a gift shop in Miami. My belt is from Buffalo Exchange and paired nicely with my hat and purse. My sunglasses are also from Buffalo Exchange. I’m so happy I experimented with my hair by doing a middle part. Wasn’t sure I could with bangs but I made it happen! This means you can expect more of this hair style in my upcoming posts! So happy when everything from my hair to my outfit to my day turns out perfect! Read More

Summer Wine

I am so in love with Secrets in Lace lingerie, especially their bullet bras and high waisted stretch satin thongs. I wear the thongs religiously, but every now and then I pull together a whole set like a matching bullet bra, garters, and stockings. I love feeling extra 1950s/60s by wearing garter belts and stockings. SIL has a ton to choose from and I love them all.

The other day I decided to shoot in one of my favorite SIL sets and love how the photos came out. I wanted to go with a 1960s theme so I wore the yellow bullet bra, satin red thong, yellow ruffle garter belt, a floral print robe, and matching stockings (all from Secrets in Lace!). I also wore my Christian Louboutin Maryl red pumps and took the belt off of the robe to make a matching headband. I added some hair flowers to give it a good 1960s feel and to match the robe and it was a hit! Check out the photos inside! Read More

Playboy Honey

Every now and then when I am not documenting my outfits, I like to have fun doing other shoots. A few weeks ago, I linked up with my ace Daniel of DMR Depictions to do another fun little shoot inspired by 1960’s Playboy. We did a shoot like this before but I wanted to do it a bit better than last time so I wore my pink Secrets in Lace bullet bra, matching satin thong, Ruffle trim garter belt and matching pink stockings. I had been dying to shoot in this set for a while now and finally took the chance and am so happy with how cute this shoot turned out! I love how you can get the perfect lingerie look from head to toe with Secrets in Lace. I mean, my SIL stockings match this set perfectly! To add the icing on the outfit, I wore my Bow & Crossbones confetti lucite hoops with a matching bangle, a vintage hair scarf, and my favorite Pleaser mules. I felt like a true 1960s Playboy playmate! Now if only I could have thought to wear Secrets in Lace back in 2011 when I actually shot for Playboy’s July issue lol. Read More
