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.

Vintage Green

It might be Summer but, Fall Colors will always have a special place in my heart. 
As much as I love wearing Whimsical colors, my true desire is to wear Moody colors like Navy Blue, Forest Green, Noir, Grey, & Crimson Red. Today my Husband & I found a beautiful Park with tons of Forest Green tress that so happen to compliment my Forest Green 1950s Claudette Swing dress from Top Vintage Boutique. This divine 1950s swing dress is very flattering to my petite shape, & it is extremely comfortable to stroll around in. The Gathered Bust with a V Cut shape is a beautiful way to accentuate your bust & show off a little skin. 
Accessories are a gals best friend, & this adorable 1920s Inspired Birdcage Purse is absolutely perfect & it adds a little something extra to your look. This Noir, Creme, & Gold purse is available through TopVintage Boutique, it has a ton of room for all your necessities especially your favorite Besame Lipstick, I am wearing 1935 Cherry Red from their Classic Color Collection. To complete my Vintage Inspired look I am wearing a T - Strap Heel, this style was a very popular in the 1940s, & I can see why because even with a High Heel they are very comfortable. The Tamaris T-Strap is made out of Vegan Leather, I paired them up with my What Katie Did Glamour Noir/Nude Seamed Stockings.

The Pink Door

Visiting the Famous Pink Door in Palm Springs, this MidCentury home is a must see when touring Palm Springs & it just happens to be Instagram Famous. The Pink Door is extremely tall in person, & it reminds me of a yummy Pink Chocolate bar. This area features a ton of Unique MidCentury Style homes, but this one is my favorite. The Famous Pink Door used to be a faded brown color, & the homeowners decided to change it up by adding a pop of color; who would have guessed a simple pop of color would make this house, a tourist hot spot! 
Feeling like a total Betty Babe in this Priscilla Miami Midi Dress from The Pretty Dress Co. I adore this 1960s Inspired Novelty Print, the bold colors & fun shapes remind me so much of Palm Springs & what it must have looked like in that Golden Era. Palm Springs has always been known as one of thee best Summer Vacation Hot Spots in the 60s, & is still considered one of the best places to visit. This swing style is classic & the whimsical print paired up perfectly with my Vintage Baby Pink & Powder Blue Candy Dot Springolators. The Baby Pink Metallic Jayne  Sunnies from Retro Sunnies are the purrrfect Bombshell Cat Eye Frames. They are named after the Blonde Bombshell Jayne Mansfield herself.
This Whimsical Pastel Print reminded me of Betty Cooper from the Archie Series. 
 I added a few accessories to dress up my look a bit; a Vintage Lucite Purse, paired with a pastel salmon color cropped cardigan & some adorable Betty & Veronica Collar Pins, isn't this Telephone Collar set just adorable?! Betty and Veronica collaborated with Artist Sara Lyons to create the Perfect BFF Pins, with Classic Line work by
 Legendary Archie Artist Dan DeCarlo. 
Every now & then its fun to be kitchy & cute like Betty Cooper, her character always reminded 
me of a 1960s Barbie.

I found the perfect Pop of Color to match the colorful print on my Priscilla Dress, Besame Cosmetics "1931 Tango Red" Classic Color Lipstick. This Vibrant Peachy Orange shade has a stunning Pinky-Red Undertone, with a Matte Finish. Tango Red is definitely a must have color for Summer, pair it up with one of their fabulous sheer blushes & you will look like a 60s Bombshell for Summer.
 I am also wearing Besame Cosmetics Cashmere Foundation Stick in shade "Bisque" 
& their Delicate Rouge Blush in their 1960s shade "Sweet Pink".

Cherry Stained Lips

It's Cherry Season, & the best way to celebrate is to wear a Retro Cherry Dress & have a Picnic! 
Speaking of Cherry Print Dresses this show stopping wiggle is a Modern Reproduction of a style that Blonde Bombshell Marilyn Monroe wore in the 1961 Film "The Misfits". The Ava Retro Cherry Pencil dress is the perfect wiggle to make heads turn, I felt like a Dan DeCarlo Pin Up in this bold print. The Ava Dress from The Pretty Dress Company fits like a glove, it hugs your curves in all the right places, & it shows just enough skin; definitely Marilyn approved. The Ava Pencil is becoming one of my favorite styles to wear, with built in lining & their signature shoulder bow detail, it's easy to fall in love with. The front & back features a "V" Neckline, & the pencil skirt is perfectly tailored. 

I recently received Besame Cosmetics 1935 Cherry Red Lipstick, a Deep Rich Red that resembles Cherry Stained lips. Their lipsticks are long lasting & moisturizing, keeping your lips soft to the touch. My current must haves from their Glamorous Collection are the Cashmere Foundation Sticks "Bisque", Cream Rouge Blush "Crimson", & all of their Red Lipsticks; you can never have to many red lipsticks. Their Cashmere Sticks are creamy, lightweight, matte, & offer a build able coverage, leaving your skin smooth & flawless. When I apply my Besame products I feel & look like a 1940s Starlet.
