Rita | Loco Lindo

Rita | Loco Lindo
The temperature is rising & I find myself grabbing for my 40s rayon dresses to keep cool during the summer heat wave. Rayon material is light, soft, & absolutely perfect for a hot summer day. Loco Lindo is one of my favorite Los Angeles made Vintage Reproduction brands, they use high quality rayon crepe fabric to recreate vintage styles from the 1930s-1970s. I have been a huge fan of Loco Lindo's ever since I stopped by their booth inside the Dapper Day Expo, I love their unique prints & patterns I especially love the Rita Hayworth inspired dress named after the Starlet herself. I am wearing the "Rita" dress in this new colorful floral print called "Indochina." The Rita dress is the perfect knee length dress for a Spring or Summer outing, the dress features a v - shaped bust, with slight gathering on the sleeves, & a waist tie to nip the waist in a bit. I can honestly say Loco Lindo makes the most comfortable vintage inspired dresses, they are perfect for everyday wear! I could lounge around in my rayon crepe dresses & still feel glamorous. 

For a casual 1940s inspired look I paired the Rita dress with my brown Parisienne flats from my favorite shops Charlie Stone Shoes. They specialize in vintage inspired footwear with comfort & classic style in mind, they are designed to look like vintage heels, but with the comfort of flats. They add cushioned soles to give your arch some support, to keep your feet happy & loved.

I am sure you have heard this phrase quite a bit "Spring Showers brings May Flowers" well with that being said I am so excited to share my new floral dress! Hearts & Found is a unique Etsy shop specializing in custom made dresses with adorable prints & patterns. You simply choose a dress, skirt or top pattern from the options listed, choose from their unique prints, & include your measurements in the note box when checking out. I went with the "Woodland Floral" 100% cotton fabric, I love how adorable this floral print is with all the shades of pink & the subtle hints of teal blue. Hearts & Found has so many pattern options that sometimes it's hard for me to choose which dress option I like best. I decided to go with the "Grace" dress, it is the perfect 1950s sun dress featuring a gathered shelf bust, a fitted bodice with a nipped in waist, & a gathered full skirt. For a Flirty Floral look I paired my dress with my Pink Glamour Seamed Stockings from WhatKatieDid, who doesn't love a matching pair of stockings?! Speaking of matching my new Briar Rose bangle set from Splendette was the perfect accessory to go with my sun dress.

Poodles & Pin Curls

Poodles & Pin Curls 
Today's style post is inspired by my 1950s-1960s Porcelain Poodle Figurine Collection. I love kitschy retro figurines they are so adorable & I have been collecting poodles for quite sometime now. When I spotted this buttery yellow poodle print dress I was in awe I've seen other poodle dresses before, but this one was to cute to pass up. Unique Vintage teamed up with Mad Men Award Winning Designer Janie Bryant for a new spring collection inspired by vintage designs from the 1950s-1960s. The novelty print caught my eye as the details are just the cutest, the poodles are wearing baby pink bows on their ears & that is so ADORABLE!! The new Unique Vintage x Janie Bryant spring collection features playsuits with matching skirts, halter tops, pedal pushers, & high waisted shorts that come in playful pastels featuring darling novelty prints. This Poodle - Buttery Yellow Dress is made with a soft light to medium no stretch cotton fabric which is great for spring & summer. The matching belt is a great addition as it cinches the waist beautifully giving you that classic 1950s New Look hourglass figure. The Janie Bryant x Unique Vintage collection is feminine, classic, & will turn heads wherever you go.

1950s // Vivien of Holloway
It's officially May which means the heat is heading our way, & I am actually excited for all the summer looks I have planned.  To be completely honest I am not a huge fan of summer, but I really love vintage summer fashion peasant tops, halter sun tops, playsuits, & high waisted denim trousers dreamy!!! Today's style post features a fun in the sun 1950s inspired look from Vivien of Holloway one of my favorite vintage reproduction brands. I am not usually a jeans gal, but lately I have been finding really great denim jeans from reproduction brands & for a decent price too! When I saw the Red Denim 1950s Jeans from Vivien of Holloway I fell in love & knew I had to get them, I paired the jeans with their Black & White Gingham Midi Gypsy Top & my new favorite Hallie suede red sandals from Hotter Shoes
P.s these Clear 1950s Cat Eye frames from Pin Up in a Pack are the cutest!!
The Hallie sandal is my new favorite style from Hotter shoes, it comes in this gorgeous red suede lined with leather & accented with a beautiful floral pattern on the wedge. To give them the comfort test I wore them out on my trip to Disneyland & they were a dream to walk in, the Hallie style has cushioned insoles that give great arch support. This style is super cute & pairs up nicely with my 1950s trousers, you can easily style this wedge sandal with a pair of high waisted shorts or you're favorite summer dress.
