VINTAGE VANDALIZM

Red Velvet Roses

I have an entire dresser dedicated to my underpinnings so I can never have too many lingerie pieces I can play dress up with. I can run down an entire list. Agent Provocateur, La Perla, La Petite Coquette, you name it, I probably own it. My recent obsession is with Dita Von Teese lingerie. Dita understands GOOD lingerie and how everything should fit on the female form. She recently sent me this gorgeous Madame X set and I mean…its absolutely gorgeous! I love that the bra is vintage with a sprinkle of naughtiness. The straps on the bra and garter belt make this the perfect dark, decadent, and delicious set to wear in or out of the bedroom. I had fun shooting it with my vintage robe at my friend Rene’s beautiful 1920s style home. I just want to wear this set every day!

Dark & Decadent

When I think of adding a bit of luxury and elegance into my wardrobe, my first thought is The Pretty Dress Company. I have never worn a company whose quality, fit, and styles supersede its price point. They recently released a new style called the Tilly Dress (I’m obsessed!) that comes in a variety of colors and prints and even in both a pencil and circle skirt fit. Of course I had to get my hands on the tartan colorway as its one of my favorite prints to sport for F/W.

The Tilly Tartan prom dress is, hands down, one of my favorite dresses to date. With a gorgeous neckline and a full circle skirt like that, its kind of hard for this dress to not make a statement no matter how it’s worn. It is both comfortable and chic and a versatile piece I can really have fun accessorizing. I wore mine to a fancy dinner at Montelago Village, one of my favorite underrated destinations in Las Vegas. I was feeling a bit dark in theme for the month of October so I paired my dress with some cool leather accessories. Needless to say, it was a huge hit at the restaurant and all over the village haha. It helped that I also had a very good hair day (yay!). This is one of my favorite outfits this year and I am glad I got to get it on film before I put it back in my closet. ❤ Read More

Painting the roses red..

The gorgeous & glamorous, Dita Von Teese, has blessed me with her new Lingerie collection and I just couldn’t wait to shoot them. One of my favorites is this gorgeous Coquette set in red. The red lace and the cute pink rose accents are just DREAMY. Its the perfect set for a day of gardening ;). My hair flowers are by my great friend Nicole and my stockings are by Secrets in Lace. The gorgeous vintage pink piano shawl belongs to my friend Rene who was generous enough to let us shoot at his beautiful 1920s inspired home. Hope you all love these photos my friend Daniel shot as much as I do. I think they are my favorite to date! Read More

Bad Bettie.

I treat corsets like I do evening gowns. In my opinion, they are so special, I only wear them on special occasions. However, I recently got my hands on a PVC corset from Orchard Corset that I just couldn’t wait to wear. I couldn’t wait for that special occasion. I didn’t even care that it was nearly 117 degrees outside (needless to say, I may have lost some weight around my waist haha). I wanted to channel my inner bad Bettie in it and I did just that.

Since I was going for a more casual look (my casual is a bit extreme for some haha), I decided to wear the corset with a matching patent leather pencil skirt and a t-shirt. I love being able to water down an outfit like this and still make it look fierce. This is also one of the most comfortable corsets I have ever worn. I am wondering if it’s because it just hits my waist and hips perfectly. Some corsets are either too long, or don’t follow my natural curvature.

I felt like a little vixen in this ensemble. I even wore my favorite Christian Louboutin fetish style pumps. Sometimes its nice to take a break from my usual styles to visit my darker side. I think I will be channeling this look a lot this Fall. And maybe with some more Orchard corsets? YES PLEASE. Read More

Age of Athena

When I was a child, I loved greek mythology (Still do!). I started drawing creatures like centaurs, unicorns, medusa, and goddesses before I even knew what they were. My aunt Janette would take me to the Metropolitan Museum and I would marvel at all of the beautiful greek statues and beautifully woven tapestries (The Unicorn Tapestries was my favorite).

I was especially interested in all of the goddesses. Women of strength and power always inspired me greatly. Even when I played video games, I’d always gravitate towards/play strong female characters. I am sure it’s partially responsible for the kind of woman I am today.

One of my favorite goddesses was Athena. She was the Goddess of poetry, art, wisdom, and war strategy. I, like Athena, am poetic by nature, an artist at heart, have always been wise beyond my years (or so I think haha), and always have the best strategies when dealing with hardships. She is the goddess of greek mythology that I identify with the most and sometimes I channel these inspirations through my personal style.

On this day I wore the most gorgeous two piece set by The Pretty Dress Company and basically lived the dream of being my own kind of Goddess. How could I help myself? It has a detachable skirt that is open in the front so you can see that I am wearing a romper underneath (I LIVE for that drama!). For accessories, I paired the PDC set with some gold scrappy heels and went to my local Michael’s to create the perfect gold headband. I also wore a vintage handbag one of my lovely followers sent me from her grandmothers collection of gorgeous vintage accessories. It looked perfect and was everything I could want in an outfit. I’d say its one for the books!

Anyway, I am ready to be hired to play a goddess in a Greek Mythology film. So feel free to message me to be in your next film, k? haha! Read More
