A Masquerade Night

I adore Novelty Prints especially when the artwork is just cute & fun! Miss ladybug.ca offers such adorable novelty prints that are influenced by the Vintage Styles of the 20s-60s. I have featured her designs on my blog before & I couldn't be happier to share another beautiful design today! The Masquerade Night Tee influenced by 1950s Cat Eyewear & of course Masquerade Balls that have been celebrated since the 15th century. The Masquerade Night Tee is made out of 100% Cotton & provides some stretch, the tee is very comfortable & chic. This Tee is also available in Pink or this soft shade of Grey with darling flecks of gold glitter, it is also available as a Cardigan in Red or a Light Teal.

Of course I couldn't feature this darling tee without wearing a pair of Retro Sunnies in their Extreme Cat Eye Style Joan. The beautiful Blonde Bombshell Jayne Mansfield was known for wearing some very avant grade style sunnies, & in today's current fashion Cat Eye frames are still very popular. To think that a simple cat eye frame could be inspired by the 15th century & still be used as an everyday eyewear, fashion that lives on forever.

Hotel California

Welcome to Hotel California in Palm Springs, CA this beautiful Spanish Influenced building was built in 1942. The building is currently being used as a Hotel Boutique, where you can dine in & relax while enjoying the beauty of the living desert. Hotel California has such exquisite details, from its rustic chic rooms to it's relaxing oasis. Palm Springs is a beautiful place to visit, so many wonderful Mid Century Homes, Art Galleries, & of course their Vintage Shops are amazing. 
I absolutely adore the fashion scene in the 40s & the Timeless Dress from Stop Staring, is a classic 40s influenced wiggle dress that doesn't disappoint. The Timeless dress has darling vintage features such as the subtle keyhole cut out at the bust, releasing just a bit yet not to much that it keeps your style classy & sophisticated. Another darling feature is the sash at the waist, which comes with a matching belt to accentuate your waist giving you a lovely bombshell hourglass shape. The gathering on the bodice really gives you that 1940s vibe, the color is a beautiful soft shade of grey that is made out of a soft stretch fabric. The back features a classic pencil skirt slit, for comfort when doing the Jayne walk, it also features a zipper down the middle. 
I wanted to accessorize my look with soft plush raven curls, & a bright classic red lip. I used one of my favorite lipsticks from Besame Cosmetics in shade American Beauty, a replica of the lipsticks offered in 1945. My look was inspired by Vintage Dior Ads from the 40s-50s, I always loved that Timeless Effortless look. A large Lolita Hat, classic black mules, & the Marilyn Retro Sunnies with darling Rhinestone accents.

1941 Victory Red

1941 an Era with such glamour, I have always enjoyed the beauty scene in the 40's. The Classic Soft look has become a signature style of mine, which has taken a lot of practice for me to perfect & yet I still find myself trying to perfect my take on that era of glamour. It's always easier to apply more then it is to apply less, I like to go for a soft full brow, red stained lips, & a full set of lashes simple & sophisticated. I find that my love for 40's glamour came from my obsession with technicolor films. The fashion was always so classy & yet daring at times, & the make up was simple but flawless. In today's Vintage Inspired Style post I am featuring The Mistress Swing Dress in Forest Green by The Pretty Dress Company
When I first saw this dress I thought the color was absolutely gorgeous, I love the shade Forest Green especially against cream or gold tones. The fabric is on the thicker side which is perfect for this chilly California weather, it is made out of a Stretch Woven Fabric & is lined to the waist. I paired this classic 40's design with a pair of Vintage Gold Jeweled Lucite Slingbacks & my 1941 Victory Red Pin from Besame Cosmetics
The Pin worn here is a replica of a 1940's Victory Pin, worn to support our Troops. The name references the Allied Victory in WWII, the matching Lipstick is a replica shade of red that was used in 1941, during the War the Military Forces commissioned the First Red Lipstick to Women in Uniform. The Military Uniform Caps for Women in the Forces often featured a lovely Victory Red Braided Detail on the Trim of their caps. When purchasing this Lipstick & Pin Trio $5.00 is donated to the "Hope for the Warriors" Organization to support our Veterans.

Dapper Day Fall Soiree

A Look Back on Dapper Day's Fall Soiree!

Dapper Day, an Outside Event that has captivated the hearts of the Vintage Inspired Community. Dapper Day started off as a small outside event that has grown & improved each year. The Event is done twice a year once in the Spring time & again in the Fall, this wonderful event features a large EXPO featuring some of the Most Popular Vintage Reproduction Brands. The Dapper Day EXPO is held inside the Disneyland Hotel, where you can take a stroll down Memory Lane with the darling Images of Disneyland through out the years. The EXPO has many wonderful exhibitors as well as some fun Photo Op locations. 

Welcome to the Dapper Day EXPO
Dapper Day is one of my favorite events held at Disneyland Parks & at the Disneyland Hotel, getting all dolled up in Vintage or Vintage Reproduction is always a blast. I was honored to represent one of my favorite Vintage Repro Brands "The Pretty Dress Company" they make such beautiful classic Old Hollywood glamour garments with amazing quality & fit. Here I am showcasing their "Silver Barque Embroidered Pencil Dress" in one of my favorite styles they offer "Femme Fatale". The Femme Fatale silhouette is such a classic form fitting dress, it hugs your curves in all the right places, & accentuates the waist beautifully. 

The Femme Fatale Dress has such exquisite quality, the fit is truly amazing. As a woman who has minimal curves it really adds some shape to my body type, & makes me feel like a glamorous woman. The Bodice has Boning that pulls in your waist without any shape wear, & keeps the bodice firm. The sleeves are gathered adding a darling Vintage-esque touch, the back features an invisible zipper allowing you to slip into your dress without any discomfort. The Femme Fatale is fully lined, & has a spilt in the back for your comfort, making walking a breeze. My favorite feature is how stunning the Silver Lace Tulle looks on top of the Cream Stretch Sateen fabric, it truly makes you feel like your wearing Vintage Couture. 
Of course every glamour girl needs fabulous hair & make up. When it comes to looking Old Glam, I go to the best stylist Missy F. also known as TechnicolorCutie or HairStylingbyMelissa. She has been doing Vintage Hair for years & she is amazing at it, she is my go to stylist for all the events I attend. Her hair magic is like Disney magic, every time she touches my raven hair I feel like a Starlet, the Vintage Hairstyle we went for was the famous "Pageboy" its Timeless & Classic. For those of you who are located in the Los Angeles area, or can travel to LA, I highly recommend her for Cuts, Style, & Color; she doesn't disappoint.  

Let's Talk Besame!
Besame Cosmetics, always has a booth at the Dapper Day EXPO showcasing their beautiful Vintage Inspired Cosmetic Line. I have been a huge Besame Fan for quite sometime, I wear their products every time I get dolled up. I swear by their Classic Colour Lipsticks, they are absolutely stunning in their Gold Tubes, that resemble bullets that were used during the 1940's. The Classic Colour Lipsticks are replicas of popular lipstick shades through the 1920's-60's, with a Creamy Smooth Texture that wears beautifully for hours & has a Matte Finish. Here I am wearing my favorite Blue Based Red, in their signature shade "Besame Red" based on a popular shade from the early 1920's.

One of my favorite things about Dapper Day aside from getting to dress up all fancy in my favorite parks, is meeting Vintage Lovers from different cities, states, & countries. Here I am with a fellow Pin Up Model Miss "HollyMaeWoods", who looked lovely in a Two Toned Blue Vintage Dress, she was Disneybounding as Ariel in her "Kiss The Girl Scene" from The Little Mermaid. I loved having a mini photo shoot with her by Snow Whites Wishing Well, I am always excited to meet up with the lovely ladies I chat with in the Vintage/Pin Up Community. 
Ani also had her hair done for Dapper Day by Missy.

I hope my viewers get a chance to experience Dapper Day at any of their Disney Parks, it's truly a wonderful experience & gives us an inside look as to what it was like to be at Disneyland during it's Vintage Era. 
See you in the Spring Dapper Day!
