Blush & Snowflakes || Pinup Girl Clothing Vivien Dress

IMG_1252_2

There is something about light colors and snow that I find so soft and magical.  With a setting of softly falling snowflakes and Chicago architecture of 1930, my blush-colored Vivien Dress from Pinup Girl Clothing's Pinup Couture almost made me feel like a mythical queen.  I was amazed by the impeccable fit, design, and quality of the Vivien... the soft sheen fabric is gorgeous and the slight stretch is flattering, gently hugging all the right places.   Adding to this royal femme ambience I wore the Rachel Swarovski-adorned veil by Niccoco, that I'm so absolutely honored was named after me!  As always, see the rest of my outfit details after the photos...

Glamorous Boredom || 1950's Blue Velvet Vintage Halter Dress

IMG_0577

1950's movies with Doris Day, Grace Kelly, Betty Grable, and so many more always have me thinking that the 50's just might possibly be the best era for clothes.  You all know that I'm probably mainly a pencil dress kind of girl, but I can't resist a beautiful swing dress either... like this halter from Blue Velvet Vintage!  This shade of light green is such a gorgeous soft color, and the fabric is made of the softest cotton.  Blue Velvet Vintage not only carries stunning vintage reproduction pieces, but also many top quality authentic vintage items... it is a gem!  Using my own vintage decor in a setting of my own 1920's built apartment,  I had fun creating somewhat of a "1950's housewife pinup" theme ... more on the spoiled side rather than scrubbing floors - glamorous boredom, in a way. :)

Purple Satin || Pinup Girl Clothing "Isabelle Dress"

IMG_0990_2

The Pinup Girl Clothing Isabelle Dress by Laura Byrnes pretty much embodies everything I love in a dress.  It is made of luxurious satin accented by black lace, and it has an hourglass enhancing fitted shape with an almost mermaid-like ruffled hemline.  I adore the long hemline - it is so flattering, and exudes such a glamorous formal gown elegance.  You are probably familiar with Pinup Girl Clothing, but if you are a not, you need to be.  They create gorgeous vintage reproduction garments, flattering the female form in every shape, being a true example of the fact that beauty is not a size.  As a corset-wearing pinup, I have found that every single piece accentuates the vintage-inspired curves I love to create.  This is the first of a little series of Pinup Girl Clothing garments I'll be featuring, so stay tuned for much more!
