Here Comes Mrs.SweetHeart

SWEETHEART
Today's look has me feeling like a 1950s SweetHeart! 
These adorable high waisted Sweet Heart shorts are from one of my favorite Authentic Vintage Inspired Clothing Brands Vivien of Holloway. I adore their True Vintage Esthetic, I always feel like a Vintage Dream in their designs & this duo is my latest Summer Obsession. The Halter Neck Top in Cotton Red is so flattering to my body type, it really hugs my curves in all the right places. The Top has built in boning to nip your waist giving you that Iconic 1950s Hourglass
Doesn't it pair up beautifully with these darling shorts?
This is my first pair of Vivien of Holloway Shorts & I have to say I am in LOVE! I have always been one to skip the shorts isle, every time I would try on a pair of shorts they never covered my cheeks & I personally prefer my bum to be covered. When I saw these adorable Vivien of Holloway shorts I noticed right away that they were longer than most "High Waisted Shorts" out on the market, another bonus was they are actually High Waisted; rising an inch above my natural waist! I love that these shorts are replicas of a 1950s style, they look & feel authentic, the waistband cinches my waist perfectly giving me a flattering waist to hip ratio without any shape wear! The Sweetheart pattern is so darling, I had HEART EYES when I saw them on their website, the pattern is perfect in every way. These shorts have two front pockets, that can easily hold an iPhone 6 Plus & even some major essentials like my Besame Lipstick & Travel LipBrush.

Sheer & Dots

Retro & Feminine; two wonderful words to describe this beautiful 1950s Inspired Swing Dress from Unique Vintage. I adore a good 1950s Swing Dress, & this one just so happens to be one of my new favorite styles. The Teal Swiss Dot Garden State Mesh Dress is perfection! With such darling details such as the sweetheart bodice, which also has a built in bra pads for bust support. Another darling feature are the sleeves which can be worn as a Halter Style, Off the Shoulder, or slightly passed your collar bone. This lovely dress has a few layers under that help give your skirt that full 50s swing shape, no petticoat required! 
Sheer & Polka Dots pair up so perfectly together, so Feminine & Sweet. 
To keep a Retro 1950s Esthetic I paired my dress with Sheer Ivory Gloves, a Sheer 1950s Head Scarf, Glitter Crystal Heels, & a Vintage Lucite Confetti Purse. I love how this Vintage Inspired Look can be worn for different occasions, for a Dapper Day Out, a Special Event, & even as a Bridesmaid dress for those Vintage Brides out there. You can shop this lovely style in a few other hues as well I chose Teal as it pairs up beautifully with my raven hair & signature bold red lips. Of course I am wearing my favorite Vintage Inspired Cosmetic Company Besame Cosmetics, featuring 1941 Victory Red Lipstick, 1969 Soft Pink Delicate Rouge Blush, & Bisque Cashmere Stick Foundation.

Pop some Champagne & have a Roaring Time in this stunning 1920s Wilshire Flapper Day Dress from Unique Vintage
This 20s inspired dress is absolutely beautiful in person, the material is lightweight & perfect for a Vintage Summer. The Wilshire Day Dress is dreamy & has darling details like the flattering Drop Waist, Sleeves that Flutter when you Shimmy, & a Faux Collar Tie accentuating the bust. This dress is visually stunning & instantly makes you feel like a 20s Starlet, ready to take on a leading role on Broadway. Unique Vintage offers high quality Flapper Dresses in styles like 1920s Daytime Glamour to a Roaring Gatsby Night Out. They have quite the collection, featuring dresses that have Tassels, Sequins, Beading, Lace, Chiffon, & they have so many color choices to choose from. I purchased my Bridesmaid Flapper Dresses from their Burbank Store & fell in love with all the details & the overall quality, their Flapper styles are so exquisite & worth every penny!
The 1920s Era has always held a special place in my heart, when I was a little girl I loved how dramatic the women looked, with their flushed cheeks, dark eyes, & bold lips it was so captivating & unique. I grew up watching Old Films, & my favorite genre of film is Film Noir Crime Thrillers, with all its beautiful suspense & dramatic lightening. When styling this darling 20s Day Dress, I really wanted to create that iconic 20s look so I went with a softer color palette on my eyes using shades of blue, grey, & beige shimmers to create a smokey effect to my eyes. Became Cosmetics offers high quality Authentic Vintage Inspired Beauty Products that really helped me achieve the Flapper Screen Siren esthetic. Wearing 1915 Rose Delicate Rouge blush on my cheeks for a flushed look, 1920s Besame Cake Mascara to add drama to my lashes, Besame Red Lipstick a bright blue based red that was worn in the 20s. 

To achieve this Glamorous Screen Siren look I styled the Wilshire dress with Nude on Nude Seamed Stockings, a Bedazzled Noir Turban with a Vintage Brooch, Chiffon Vintage Gloves, Vintage Art Deco Earrings, Gold & Silver Glitter Heels, topped with a Creamy Champagne Faux Fur Wrap. You can easily style this lovely dress for Fall & Winter, with a darling 20s Clara Bow Hat, Faux Fur Wrap, & a Long Coat.

Buttercup Baby

Buttercup Baby, featuring a complete look from Vivien of Holloway.
A Vintage Reproduction brand that is heavily influenced by Authentic Vintage Designs. They make anything from 1950s Dresses to Separates like these Capri Trousers, I am wearing the ButterCup Capris in a 24 Waist / 36 Hip. They are true to size & fit just like authentic vintage capris, real authentic trousers do run looser in the thighs & legs unlike modern designs today. I like that the waistband really pulls in my natural waist, creating a very flattering hourglass shape. They feature front pockets, a zipper on the back, & a little button to secure the waistband. I really love that Vivien of Holloway offers styles that look & feel authentic. 
The Gypsy Top is a Summer Must have! 
I am wearing the White Lace Embroidered with White Polka Dot details, it can be worn up or off the shoulders, tucked in your high waisted trousers or wear it out. The top is gathered around the waistline with elastic to pull in your natural waist to create that iconic 50s hourglass shape. I like to show off my waist with high waisted trousers or skirts so I decided to tuck my gypsy top in. The Gypsy top is based on an authentic late 40s early 50s design, you may have seen this style on Marilyn or Sophia Loren a few times. Under the darling lace frill are some puffy sleeves, that can be worn up to get that peasant western style. 

Vivien of Holloway is a perfect Vintage Reproduction brand, especially if you are looking for Authentic Vintage Styles. They offer beautiful designs in a wide range of colors, & they are made out of high quality materials. I really do adore their separates, there are so many styles to choose from especially for all the different seasons. They are a London based store, but their Online Shop is easy to browse & they offer a size guide to help you get the perfect fit.
