VINTAGE VANDALIZM

1940s Decadence

Miss Candyfloss has quickly become one of my favorite retro brands. I love all of their jumpsuits and have acquired quite the collection but did you know they make amazing dresses too? This gorgeous black dress caused quite the ruckus when I wore it for a festive night out with friends at the Las Vegas Strip. Its pretty cold now here in LV so I had to find a way to warm up this outfit without compromising the dress so I wore a vintage scarf and long black vintage opera gloves. To top it off, I wore a vintage tilt hat and vintage earrings. To add some sparkle I wore a crystal hair piece and matching brooch. For heels, I kept it simple with black pumps. It was certainly one of my favorite outfits of last year. What do you think? Read More

Record Store Retro

I totally forgot to post this a few months ago but I modeled for Tatyana Boutique at 11st Records shot by my friend and one of my favorite photographers, Daniel of DMR Depictions. It was such a quick and fun shoot, it didn’t even feel like work! I also got to model alongside the cutest gal, Christine or (@christinethebeanqueen), who is much more experienced than me at modeling hehe. She did such a great job! I love seeing her at pinup pageants and am always rooting for her because she’s got great charisma and is sweet as pie. 11st Records was the perfect location for this shoot. It’s such a cool spot and I love rummaging through records there (They’ve got a great selection!). I love how the images came out! See them inside <3.

Rebel in Red.

Micheline Pitt, the designer behind some of my favorite Pinup Girl Clothing pieces has now created her own fashion line called Vixen by Micheline Pitt. I am pretty obsessed with her dresses and separates and got my hands on nearly her entire collection because its…that…GOOD. And guess what? Her stuff goes up to a 4x! A few weeks ago I wore her Vixen Swing Dress to a Charity event & Car Show and it was a huge hit (and hella comfortable). I love the sexy off-the-shoulder puff sleeves and the cute sweet heart neckline that ties into a bow. I also love the print! I love Micheline’s fun illustrations. Her prints are always fun, flirty, and edgy. Since this dress has a bunch of cute lipstick prints I decided to wear pops of red for contrast. I wore my red leather jacket, a red belt, and of course I wore a red lip. I also wore my white vintage sunnies and kept my shoes simple with some black mules from Pleaser. It was such a fun day for a fun outfit! Thankfully my boy Daniel of DMR Depictions was there with his camera so I bugged him to take photos of my outfit (as I always do! hehe). You will be seeing a lot more of Micheline Pitt’s clothing line on my blog as Ive got plenty of more styles to share so stay tuned. ❤

Sacred Heart.

I know, I know, I am terribly behind on posts! I have been so busy you guys, I haven’t had a chance to catch up on my blog. Anyway, Here’s an awesome shoot I did with Daniel of DMR Depictions in November. I have always wanted to do a shoot inspired by Lady of Guadalupe and since the Day of the Dead was just a few days away we combined the two seamlessly. My mother loves Dia De los Muertos so that aspect of the shoot was more for her than for my own portfolio. Daniel gifted her a print when she was in town and she was so happy!

I picked the perfect dress for the shoot, the Femme Fatal dress by The Pretty Dress Company. I attached one of my vintage brooches of the Virgin Mary onto the bust of the dress. I then created my own head piece with fabric roses I had lying around, a few doilies, and some popsicle sticks. It was the best and easiest DIY ever and I am amazed at how beautiful it came out once I busted out my glitter gold spray paint. I wore a floral shawl I made a few years ago too. I didn’t have a veil so on the day of the shoot I ran into Savers and bought some fabric. To my surprise they also had a gorgeous gold cross necklace that was the perfect finishing touch to my outfit. Everything just fell into place. This is definitely one of my favorite shoots to date with Daniel but I love all the images we shoot together. Daniel and I understand each others creativity so we are able to bring each others visions to life. I hope you all love the images!

img_2590I’m a lingerie lover so when I discovered What Katie Did, I nearly jumped for joy. WKD has a glamorous selection of lingerie for the modern retro girl all taking inspiration from the 1930s-1950s. They have the best bullet bras, garters, stockings, and negligee. I already have my lingerie dresser stacked full of WKD gems like these 1930s pajamas. They are SO comfortable to sleep in and I love how I can make this two piece pajama set look like a jumpsuit just by tying the waist around twice.
