Royal Peacock Blue

 This remarkable dress from the DevilsInspired reminds me so much of  Dior's Timeless Designs in the 1950's. Dior's Iconic Full Swing Dresses always had such nice volume in their underskirts, I wanted to recreate that silhouette with today's Winter Inspired Look.  The Brand DevilInspired offers a wide selection of Retro Vintage to Victorian Era, of course I fell in love with this beautiful Peacock Blue Taffeta Velvet Brocade dress. I adore Vintage Inspired Dresses especially ones with a full skirt, they always have such beautiful volume & look the best when paired up with a Petticoat. With today's look I was inspired by Winter Fashion in the 50's, when receiving this dress I looked to 1950's Vintage Dior for Inspiration. 
This beautiful Taffeta Peacock Blue makes such a statement when the light hits the fabric you can see the beautiful sheen it has. The darling velvet brocade inspired victorian detail is a great addition to the fabric it really adds that royal touch, when I first saw this dress I knew it was perfect for the Holiday Season. The dress lay's beautifully on me, I am Petite Gal at 5'1, I find it sometimes hard to wear certain styles especially in full skirt swing dresses. The length hits me right at the calve which  I personally prefer, I don't like anything above my knee's or at knee length. The skirt has a few layers underneath to give that desired Dior Fullness, it has a layer of lining & a layer of tulle, I actually added a third layer by wearing a tulle petticoat to give extra fullness. 

 It's all in the Details!
This dress features a Hepburn inspired neckline that fits my fuller bust fairly well, I love how the neckline lays right beneath my collarbones. The dress also features 3/4 half sleeves but, of course being petite the sleeves are a bit longer on me so they end at the wrist. Which I actually don't mind because the fabric allows me to pull them up a bit without it being uncomfortable. The waist line is accentuated by this darling wrap that you can tie in a bow, you can choose to wear it in the front like I did or you can tie it in the back. The back of the dress is another stunning feature with that scoop in the back showing a bit of skin makes for a daring but tasteful reveal. The dress also has a black zipper that appears invisible to the eye, the zipper makes this dress easy to slip into especially for gals who like to wear shapewear or corsets. As you can see the Velvet Brocade detail is stunning up close & stunning from a far, it's definitely a show stopper. 


Now that it's getting cooler I was excited to pair this beauty with some noir sheer nylon stockings,  I absolutely love how they look paired up with a full swing dress it adds such a classic look. I paired my stockings with my favorite pumps, from Pleaser  these lovely pumps give me some height & they add some va va - voom to my look. I kept my look simple & classy, I wanted the color & pattern to do all the talking. 

Today's Make Up Look I stayed Classic but added some Beige & Brown Eyeshadow to create a Soft Neutral Smokey Eye. I keep my everyday look pretty simple, very 1940's. A Classic Red Lip is my go to, I am adventures with shades of red but, I hardly wear any other color.

Hue's of Green!

 Today I had the pleasure of reviewing one of the beautiful Peasant Tops from the DollMeUpInc I was really excited to get my hands on this beautiful shade of Lime Green. DollMeUp offers a wide range of colors in these amazing Peasant Tops, they are extremely cost friendly which is awesome & to make things better they are available in a variety of sizes. 
 I adore my Cherry Swing Skirt but I wanted a pop of color instead of wearing Red or Black tops like I usually do, so I went on the DollMeUp site & saw this beautiful POP of color it just so happens to match the darling leaves on my Cherry Skirt. The Lime Green is true to it's name it has that slime green or classic monster green hue that I absolutely adore!
 The Peasant Top fit's like a dream! I am wearing a Size Small & it's very form fitting to my shape but not to snug which I really like. The Gathered Bust area is very nice & flattering, I love that it has some wiggle room for a variety of different bust sizes. I sometimes struggle with finding tops that fit my bust size, my cup size is large but the band around my bust is small, so having that gathered fabric really is amazing. I love that this Peasant Top allows you to just slip it on, versus having a zipper or any other type of closure, the back is also long enough to tuck into your skirts or high waisted trousers without any bulging in the back. The gathering around the armpit is very comfortable & not tight around the arms which is a dream for us gals. 
 As shown above you can wear this style with your sleeves up or off the shoulder, I personally like to wear a bra with straps with this style of top just because I really like the support. If I want to wear the top off the shoulders I either wear my bra straps slightly off my shoulders or I wear a strapless push up bra. As for shape wear you can wear a Strapless LongLine bra, & this will give your waist that Hour Glass look. The structure of this fabric is very soft & comfortable, I don't find the gathering in the back to be itchy or a bother. I love my Doll Me Up Peasant Top & I look forward to purchasing some more of the beautiful color ways they offer!

Delicate Daises & Darling Bows


 I had the pleasure of collaborating with Designer Marjorie of Hearts & Found to create some beautiful garments from their New Fall Fabrics Collection. Hearts & Found is an Etsy Store where you can find beautiful Dresses, Skirts, or Playsuits that are inspired by Vintage Patterns. Their brand is One of a Kind, the brand gives you the option to customize your own Dress, Skirt, or Playsuit in the Pattern you want & pair it with any of their Fabric Options making your purchase unique. Marjorie has so many different Fabric options that it can be so hard to choose, believe me if I could I would probably have one of everything. 


I adore the "Madeline" dress it is so darling & I have yet to see a dress like it! I have been searching for some new Fall Inspired Prints that resemble Vintage 40's dresses. It reminds me so much of something the beautiful Audrey Hepburn would wear, she always looked amazing in her classic swing dresses. Marjorie sent me a few of the Fall Sample Fabrics that she just got in the shop I immediately fell in love with the "Daisies & Roses FallFlower" Print in Navy Blue. It reminded me of a beautiful 40's floral garment that I saw in a Vintage Fashion Magazine for wholesalers. The Fabric is made out of 100% Cotton & is fully lined in 100% Cotton, it is a Medium Weight dress making it perfect for Fall Weather. The Daisy & Rose print is so clear & vivid it truly is stunning, I love the color palette on the flowers there are hues of Pink, Green, Blue, Purple, Cream, & Red. 

As you can see the Madeline Dress has some darling little details, such as the Bows on the back of the dress straps. They are attached to the back & do not untie so they always look perfect! The Darling Bows were the selling feature for me, it was unique & something I haven't seen I also love the cut of the back it really frames the body beautifully. The Fitted Bodice is gathered & really accentuates your waist giving you that Iconic 50's silhouette you expect in a full swing dress. It's the perfect Audrey Hepburn dress. For all you ladies that love Roomy Side Pockets you will be pleased to hear that the Madeline dress has them & they even fit my iPhone 6 Plus, which is a dream because I am not big on carrying purses around. This dress features a long zipper that appears invisible since it matches the base color of the dress, its hardly noticeable unless your really close up. The Zipper makes this dress really easy to slip in & out of which is a dream, if your like me ladies I usually have a hard time getting out of my dresses due to my hips & zippers being to short. 



 The Neckline is also a wonderful feature that I love, I am new to wearing a Bateau Neckline like this but I love it! The Bateau is also a very Iconic 50's silhouette that you will recognize & see more of if you are a Vintage Buyer or Vintage Enthusiast. The neckline is Flattering, Glamorous, & Feminine perfect for any vintage loving gal! The fit is amazing I have some tricky measurements so my garments are usually custom made to fit me. I am wearing a Custom Size Small with a bust size of 32C & it fits perfectly snug around my bust, but it is very comfortable to move & lift my arms in. The length of this dress is Petite Friendly which is also a major plus considering I am 5'1, so I love that I can wear it with flats & heels. 
I love that it is officially Fall here so I can finally bring out my favorite Fall Besame Cosmetic products, I did a soft fall inspired make up look using soft shades like Orange, Beige, Pinks, & Burgundy. I love wearing my replica 1946 inspired "Red Velvet" Classic Rouge Lipstick from Besame it is creamy & long lasting, it keeps my lips smooth & hydrated all day making day to day wear a breeze. I lined my lips to give that clean full 50's shape with their "Masterliner Pencil" in shade "Red/Cerise"A few of my other Fall Favorite products from Besame is the "SunKissed" Delicate Rouge Transparent Blush it is a beautiful Matte shade of a Warm Peach tone that is sheer but vivid in color, perfect for Light, Warm, & Dark Complexions. I finished my look off with my favorite vintage inspired Mascara the Besame 1940's "Cream Mascara" in Noir.

A Classic Betty!

A Classic Betty!
The Term Betty refers to a gal who is Attractive, Stylish, & Confident. 

Today's look was inspired by Teenage "Betty's" in the 1940's -1950's era. I went with a cute High Ponytail & Bumper bangs paired with the Nifty 50's Hair Scarf from DollMeUp. Keeping my look simple & influenced by the 40's I went with a Classic 40's/50's look using my 1920's Cake Mascara for my Bold Arched Brows, Winged Liner, & Mascara available Online BesameCosmetics
& at select Sephora Stores.

As a Professional Make Up Artist, I am used to owning a lot of Black pieces. I recently got my hands on Micheline Pitt's new Clothing Line VixenByMichelinePitt. When I first saw the digital art work of these beautiful peasant inspired tops, I knew I needed them in every color they came in; including black. The Powder Puff Top has these adorable Large Puffy Sleeves are Gathered so they can be worn Up like shown above, or you can show some skin like a Veronica by wearing the sleeves off the shoulders. 
The Bust section is gathered & gives ladies the options to show Major Cleavage or Keep your Look Work Appropriate. It is made out of Custom Knitted Heavy Cotton Spandex, there are no Zippers & No Buttons so you can easily slip it on & head out on Route 66. One of the most important selling points on these beauties were that they were long enough to wear over your High Waisted Jeans or Tucked in your favorite Swing Skirts like I chose to do. When you sit down or bend over to pick up your child you won't have to worry about it bulging up in the back.
 To achieve my 40's/50's inspired "Classic Beauty" look, I went to my favorite Vintage Inspired Cosmetic Company BesameCosmetics. I used their 1920's Cake Mascara Three Different ways; to achieve beautiful sculpted lashes, bold arched brows, & a classic cat eye just add a bit of water to your Cake Mascara & start applying. Finish your look off with your favorite Bright Red Lipstick & you are ready to grab a Milkshake with that lover boy!
I am wearing Masterliner Pencil in Red & 
1920's Besame Red Lipstick also by BesameCosmetics.

 Every Betty needs a Poodle Cardigan to help achieve that Classic 50's look pair it up with your Classic Black Swing Skirt & you are ready to hit the Jukebox & Swing the night away! I have always been a sucker for those Vintage Poodle Skirts, & adorable little Cardigans to match. I recently purchased this Powder Blue Poodle Cardigan from a shop called MissLadyBug.CA she has such adorable 50's Vintage Inspired designs that pair up wonderfully with my favorite pieces from Vixen By Micheline Pitt
This is my first Classic Black Swing Skirt, the Classic Vixen Skirt from Vixen by Micheline Pitt is Fully Gathered & has Waist Band that hugs your curves & gives me that HourGlass Silhouette. As a Petite Little Lady I usually need to get skirts altered because I am only 5'1, my Vixen skirt is a X Small & the length is perfect for me it stops right at my calves which I personally prefer. It has deep pockets that I can actually carry my iPhone 6 Plus inside without having to carry my purse everywhere. The Material is made out of Heavy Weight Stretch Cotton Sateen & allows for a bit of stretch.Since the skirt is fully gathered you do not have to wear a petticoat to achieve that fullness like how women would wear their circle skirts in the 50's. 
If you do love Petticoats it does look even more amazing & full.
