Channeling my inner Hedy Lamarr with this Film Noir look.
 I am falling in love with all the new Fall Arrivals on the Top Vintage website, TopVintage Boutique knows where to find all the pretty dresses! Today I am featuring the Gina Pencil Dress, a gorgeous 40s inspired dress that is perfect for any Femme Fatale. I love that you can wear this for a day at the office or you can dress it up for a vintage night out. If you are not familiar with Top Vintage, they are a Retro Boutique that offers select styles from brands all over the world.

For a complete 40s Femme Fatale esthetic I wore my polka dot Daisy brogue heels from Ruby Shoo. The spotted tweed detailing matches my Gina pencil so perfectly it is like they were meant to be! These brogue heels are 40s perfection, they are extremely comfortable, & dress up any casual occasion. I am just in awe of their Fall 17 Collection, there are so many lovely vintage inspired styles to choose from & the Daisy style doesn't disappoint. 
TIP : Pair your Ruby Shoo footwear with some Seamed Stockings,
 & you will feel like a 1940s Starlet.

Falling for 1940s Houndstooth

I am falling in love with all the Houndstooth styles for Fall!
This gorgeous 1940s inspired Houndstooth Wiggle from Stop Staring is a show stopper!
My closet is quickly filling up with some gorgeous Fall Prints & Stop Staring is making Houndstooth my go to pattern for the season. The color palette, darling details, & 40s silhouette have me feeling like a Dame in a Hitchcock Film. Every detail is exquisite; I love the collared bow with the buttons, & the darting on the waist. The fit is very comfortable, & there is a 10" slit on the back of the skirt that gives you much more movement.

Heels that glimmer & shine in the sunlight, Ruby Shoo designs vintage inspired footwear with elegance in mind. The Sonia, is a Peep Toe Stiletto with a show stopping Bronze Shimmer Brocade Pattern & a Jeweled Corsage Trim. This specific style is from their New Autumn 17 Collection, & I just love how they paired up beautifully with my Houndstooth wiggle. The fit is very comfortable, they seem to run true to size so keep that in mind when ordering. My favorite feature is the bronze flowers & crystals, they add such a lovely feminine touch. For that Authentic Vintage Touch I paired the stilettos with my favorite Glamour Seamed Stockings.

Ravishing in Red

Ravishing in Red
Isn't this Red stunning? The Troublemaker Dress is the Dream Swing Dress, especially if you are a gal who loves to dress comfortably & stylish. Vixen By Micheline Pitt creates gorgeous & great quality designs that bring out your Inner Vixen, wear them casually or go full on VIXEN! The Troublemaker comes in two Versions a Swing or a jaw dropping Wiggle!
To get a look at the Troublemaker Wiggle visit my BAD GIRL VIBES Review!
This gorgeous dress is made out of High Quality Thick Spandex | Nylon | Rayon Ponte that is super soft & warm for those cooler days ahead. The Troublemaker comes in a few different colors & prints; Red, Purple, Black, Leopard, & Zebra. The Ponte Fabric has some stretch, but the Zebra & Leopard is made out of a Textured Stretch Crepe Fabric. I love how comfortable it is, & that I can still do Mom stuff with my Toddler & still look fabulous while doing them! I am sure there are a lot of Retro Mommie's out there that want to look stylish while doing errands, & still be comfortable while doing them. This dress is the dress for you, it's easy to clean, it is comfortable, & it has HUGE POCKETS that you can hide snacks in! 
The fit is perfection, & even the petite ladies can rock this dress Vixen by Micheline Pitt offers a wonderful range of sizes from XS-4X. I am wearing the XS & I am 5"1 & the length is perfect, the dress stops at my calves which is the length I personally prefer on all my Swing Styles. I have a short torso, but the bodice fits great the bust line has really great support as well. I love the matching belt since I have such a tiny frame, it cinches in my waist beautifully & really shows off my figure. I always feel that a belt is necessary when wearing swing dresses, especially if you are petite like me. The Troublemaker Swing is an absolute dream & worth every penny, I definitely want all the colors now.

SPOOKY CHIC!

SPOOKY CHIC
Halloween is right around the corner & I am getting into the Halloween Spirit with Unique Vintage
This look was inspired by Veronica Lake's character Jennifer in the 1942 Classic "I Married a Witch", Veronica's wardrobe thought out the film was stunning, but one specific style stood out. I love her Chiffon Collared Dress it is so beautiful, & when I saw the Luna Swing Dress on the Unique Vintage website it reminded me of the dress Veronica wore. So of course when I saw the Luna Swing Dress & matching Mesh Caplet, I thought to myself that would make a perfect 1940s Witch Costume!
Affordable, Spooky, & Chic!
Veronica Lake, 1942 I Married a Witch
Now that I am older & have a little one it is pretty rare that I dress up for Halloween, so I am always looking for cute Pin Up Styles that can easily be transformed into Vintage Halloween Costumes. The Luna dress is perfect for an easy or last minute Vintage Inspired Witch Costume, all you need is a Witch Hat, a Spooky Chic Bag to carry all your essentials, & some Pointed Pumps! You can also add a cute Retro Witch Enamel Pin like I did to complete your look!
The best part about buying pretty dresses to use as Halloween Costumes, is once Halloween is over you can still use them in your daily life! The Mesh Caplet is removable so, you can wear it with or without, when you remove the mesh caplet the dress becomes a Classic Swing Dress that you can easily style with a Cute Cardigan or Leather Jacket! So you are saving money & buying a really cute dress, that you can wear more than ONCE! 
UHM Can we say Major Bonus! 
Isn't this Once Upon a Time Book Purse just adorable?! I love it's Mysterious Dark Fairy Tale Vibes, I grew up reading Grim's Fairy Tales & I love how much this purse resembles versions of the actual book. My Grim's Fairy Tales book is Black with Gold Scrolls & Gold Lettering, just like this adorable purse. I also love how versatile this bag is, it comes with two removable straps; a CrossBody Option or a Clutch Wrist Strap as shown.
