Rooftop Boudoir || Ruffles, Bustle, & Fuzzy Marabous

IMG_6833_2

There are a lot of girly details in today's rooftop boudoir look, but they pack quite the punch when paired with my new custom overbust corset by Morua Designs.  As I told my Instagram followers, I am now lacing at 21 inches, and thanks to Morua I'm feeling light as air in the process.  I've realized that cinching my waist is uninhibited by hip discomfort or little discrepancies that sometimes are present in an off the rack corset, as this corset is made to fit all those curves perfectly.  So I'm discovering that my waist actually has a larger capacity to cinch than I had realized, as 21 inches feels nice and easy.  Here I paired it with my new Wheels & Dollbaby Boudoir Hot Pants which are an amazing limited edition piece by designer Melanie Greensmith, and currently on sale!  It is one of my new favorite items in my closet... the lace, ruffled chiffon, and vintage-inspired boudoir bustle in the back - not to mention the stretch satin wears so comfortably!  It's a kitten-like boudoir piece, a sassy nighttime look, or an everyday spring/summer piece... I know I'll be wearing it constantly.  For today's rooftop lounging look, I topped off the glamour with these Unique Vintage timeless Satin Marabou Slip-Ons - a necessity in every glamour-loving girl's wardrobe.

Mystérieux || All Black + Feminine Details

IMG_5704_2

One of my very favorite brands is Stop Staring - they have the most consistently flattering designs and such amazing quality.  I always know that I can count on my shape being accentuated yet in a classy way.  Also, I rarely have to alter their dresses to fit my corset!  The fabric has a magical amount of stretch with the perfect amount of give and equally perfect support.  I fell in love with the Faith Dress ... the subtle foil dots paired with ruffled peplum keep it feminine, while the hourglass shape and solid black color add a dark mysterious feel.  What better addition to a dark look than my coffin bag from Unique Vintage?

Unique Vintage Style Society for #IAMUNIQUE Campaign

IMG_5512

I am so honored to announce that I was selected as one of the bloggers that make up the Style Society for Unique Vintage in the launch of their #IAMUNIQUE Campaign.  As a modern day pinup, if there is one concept that I live each and every day... it's the fact that my style is very different than how the average American dresses.  It's freeing to know myself so well, that my style fully encompasses "me" and makes me unique.  It seems that it's so easy in today's world to become another android in a sea of robots.  We constantly hear the words "be yourself, be an individual" but in reality, media and trends so often tend to rule majority thinking.  It's almost as though actually thinking for yourself becomes weird or crazy.  Robin Williams was quoted saying "You're only given a little spark of madness.  You musn't lose it."  Furthermore, within the pinup world we are even still all so unique... defined by our personalities, interests, inspirations, and unique characteristics.  Unique Vintage embraces these individualities among us all and celebrates the expression of these unique differences.... all shapes, sizes, backgrounds, and personal passions.   I'm so happy to share my first Unique Vintage outfit in partnership of this very special campaign, with the 1950's Halter Swing Dress and To Die For Purse!  Be sure to read all about #iamunique and use the hashtag to join the community and inspire with your unique individuality.
