The Mode Merr Brunch Spectacular & Grand Performance Car Show!

1It was a CRAZY sunday full of way too many awesome festivities and I am so happy I made it to each and every one of them. My first stop was my dad’s car show where I spent the morning and the remainder of the evening taking cool photos with the classic cars. I love to be able to come support my dad so I come out to his show every year. There weren’t too many 50s and 60s models but I was still happy I got to take pictures with a few before running off to the Mode Merr Fashion & Burlesque Brunch Spectacular at the Highline Ballroom. I was set to model in the show that day and thank god I hitched a cab because I missed my bus and nearly missed modeling in the show! However, all was good and the show was just that…SPECTACULAR. It was a very entertaining and romantic evening for the couples who sat front row enjoying the delicious food while watching the amazing burlesque performers. World Famous Bob was hosting and did a wonderful job in doing so; she had the entire room dying of laughter. After the incredible burlesque show featuring the best of the best of our NY Burly queens like the Pontani sisters, Gal Friday, Main Attraction, Dirty Martini, Julie Atlas Muz, Little Brooklyn, Peekaboo Pointe, and Queen Bee Jo Boobs Weldon the crowd got to see Labretta Suede & the Motel 6 Live! While Labretta shook her tail feathers all of us models got ready to strut our stuff in the new & FABULOUS Mode Merr collection on stage! When I saw the dress I was set to wear, I was absolutely IN LOVE. It fit me like a glove and went perfectly with my hair and shoes. The other models looked fabulous as well and did such a great job modeling the new collection on stage. I am always nervous but did my best as well as giving the crowd a little dance haha. It really was the perfect show followed by some great shopping, and though I didn’t indulge, I can’t say I didn’t want to! I love to see Miss Ruth’s Time Bomb vintage treasures, Laura Rebel Angel’s cute hats, and those $20 Mode Merr sale bins which are a total tease! I was also happy to see some familiar faces as well as meeting new ones back stage. Their was such good energy amongst all of us ladies and the crowd that came to the show and I can’t wait to attend again next year! See it all inside!IMG_0856Can I keep you?IMG_0861 Candy apple red. My favorite ❤IMG_0853IMG_6562I wanted to paint the town red so I wore this awesome cross bust Pinup Girl Clothing bandana print dress I recently coveted at the Slapback shop in Brooklyn. I have been getting most of my dresses from her as she always has a great variety of retro designs I love.
IMG_6564Because the pattern says it all, I decided to keep the accessories simple with vintage shoes, a Kate Spade purse, some cool vintage repro cat eye sunglasses, and red cocktail earrings.
