Polly // Lady K Loves

Polly // Lady K Loves
I am so excited to announce that Lady K Loves released their new style of jeans, called "Polly!"
 Last year they started a Kickstarter to create a pair of jeans, the Polly Jeans were designed with Petite Ladies in mind. When you have a petite frame like I do its often hard for us to find a good pair of high waisted denim jeans, I am 5"1 & almost every pair of jeans I come across have a 30" inseam which means I have to roll them twice to get a shorter length or have them hemmed. Having a Petite frame means we have a Short Torso & Short Legs, so sometimes finding the perfect fit for our figures can be such a pain. I was really excited when I found out that LadyKLoves was designing the perfect pair of high waisted denim jeans for us shorter gals, because every now & then I want a good pair of denim. 
Lady K Loves is all about a Vintage Style but with a Modern Fit.
The Polly Jeans are made out of semi stretch denim in a their classic color indigo blue, the Polly has a 10" Rise & 27" Inseam. Unlike other denim jeans I found this style to be quite comfortable & I noticed that they do have some give after wearing them for a few hours. My rise is just a tad bit longer than a 10" rise so they did fall just a half an inch below my natural waist line, however the fit was still nice. I am wearing their size Small because I am in-between sizes on their size chart I have a 25"  waist & 37" hips so I sized up from my usual XS. I would recommend sizing up if you are in between sizes, because they do shrink in the wash & they have minimal stretch. 
I decided to cuff my jeans for a Denim Capri style, I am not really a fan of straight legged jeans unless they are cuffed. When these jeans are not cuffed the hem ends right at my ankle, & for reference I am 5"1. I really like that the Polly style has a similar fit like their best selling "Hug Me Baby" Jeans, they both are high waisted with a straight leg fit, not to tight not to loose. I really like the jeans & I got a lot of compliments on my outfit when I took them out for the day, if you have a petite frame like I do these a great! For the ladies with a longer torso & longer legs I definitely recommend their Hug Me Baby Jeans, they are really great & comfortable too!
I hope you enjoy this review, if you have any fit questions leave me a comment below & be sure to check out the LadyKLoves website for their size guide.

Besame Cosmetics released a gorgeous new Classic Color Lipstick collection featuring hues inspired by the elegance of the 1900's. The Debutante collection features three Sheer lipstick shades Mint Rose, Chocolate Kiss, & Berry Red infused with Jojoba, Shea Butter, Vitamin E, & Calming Oat Oil keeping your lips soft, hydrated, & totally kissable. The lipsticks also have a new minty fresh scent Besame added food grade Peppermint Oil to soothe the lips while having a refreshing mint scent. The lipsticks are Sheer perfection giving your lips a soft tint of color, you can even apply the lipstick to your cheeks to add a rosy flush to your cheeks. I would recommend using Berry Red or Chocolate Kiss for a gorgeous Natural hue to your cheeks. 
Became Cosmetics wanted to create a collection inspired by the natural beauty look of the Edwardian Era, women in the early 1900's wore very little make up during that period. Make up was't very popular for everyday use so when women did apply their make up it was just a flush of color to their cheeks & a sheer stain on other lips. The Debutante Classic Color Lipsticks are very Sheer but still Rich in pigment, the lipsticks add just enough of color to your lips giving you a beautiful soft youthful look. They glide on so smooth & the minty scent is very refreshing, I decided to try Mint Rose for the day & I loved the way my lips felt. When the day was done I cleansed my skin & noticed that my lips still felt soft & smooth, because of the amazing lip care ingredients infused into the lipstick.

1941 Victory Red

1941 Victory Red 
A vintage gals dream is to own a matching lipstick & nail polish set, & I couldn't resist purchasing this amazing set from Besame Cosmetics. This Limited Edition set features one of my favorite lipstick shades Victory Red a Bright Bold Blue based Red inspired by the Golden Era 1941. Besame Cosmetics is one of my favorite make up companies I adore their vintage aesthetic, & I love learning about their beauty products & how they are inspired by authentic vintage cosmetics from Gabriela's personal collection. Gabriela is the founder of Besame Cosmetics, her love for vintage beauty started at a young age, & she has been studying the history of make up ever since. I love using their products in my daily make up routine, some of my must haves are the Delicate Rouge Blushes, Classic Color Lipsticks, & their gorgeous buttery eyeshadows especially the Agent Carter PassPort Eye Palette inspired by MARVEL's Agent Carter.
Limited Edition 1941 Victory Red Nail & Lipstick Set 
will Restock August 1st.
I couldn't wait to try this gorgeous set as soon as it arrived I tore the package open & started to paint my nails with my new Victory Red Nail Polish. The formula has a rich color that reminds me of one my favorite O.P.I nail polishes in their shade "Big Apple Red." The color pay off is gorgeous, I only had time to apply one coat but I must say that one coat was perfect! For longer lasting results, I would recommend two coats & a top coat if you work with you're hands a lot. I really like that the nail polish didn't streak & that the consistency isn't runny. 
Besame Cosmetics included a 1940s "V for Victory" pin, it is gold plated & features the iconic Red, White, & Blue stripes. The pin is darling & as a granddaughter of a Veteran I wear my pin proudly. The history behind the gorgeous Victory Red lipstick, during the war the American Military commissioned the first "Victory Red" lipstick to Women in Uniform. The lipstick was meant to inspire positivity & hope with the line "Beauty as Duty." The Caps worn by Women in the military often featured a stunning red braid trim detail that matched the gorgeous shade of Victory Red lipstick beautifully.
The name references the Allied Victory in World War II, Gabriela of Besame Cosmetics researched this iconic shade of red, & found historical samples through her studies, which helped her create a brilliant replica of the original 1941 lipstick.

Alfred Shaheen x Unique Vintage
Stepping into Summer with a classic Hawaiian print from the new Alfred Shaheen x Unique Vintage collection inspired by the original Alfred Shaheen 1950s & 1960s prints & silhouettes. This collection is a tropical dream featuring beautiful Hawaiian themed prints on classic summer favorites like the iconic sarong style dress & mens cabana set. Unique Vintage announced that this collection would carry matching "Mommie & Me" dresses for all the retro mommies out there & they certainly didn't disappoint. The Blue Tapa Tapestry is an official licensed Alfred Shaheen print that was very popular in the 50s & 60s, this print is available in a matching family set. 
Continue reading for a full review!
The Alfred Shaheen collection is perfect for summer all of the designs are made out a beautiful 100% light weight cotton fabric. The material has no stretch so be sure to check out the size chart for the perfect fit, I am in between sizes so I did order up a size because the fabric has no stretch. The size I went with in the Blue Tapa Tapestry Sarong dress was a tad bit loose in the waist as expected but over all the fit was comfortable & relaxed. The sarong silhouette is classic & a beautiful reproduction, I love the way the skirt wraps & I love that sarong can be worn as a halter or a strapless dress. The sarong dress comes with a removable button shoulder sash as well. 
The little girl dress in the matching Blue Tapa Tapestry Swing Dress is so adorable, my little one loved her dress!
The dress is a halter style dress with an adjustable strap, the sides are smocked for comfort, & the dress has a zipper on the back. I love that this dress is a mini version of a classic 1950s swing dress, it is so adorable & my daughter loves doing princess twirls in it. 
This dress is made out of the same 100% cotton material so it does not have stretch. 
Available in sizes 2T-5T!
The Mens Cabana Blue Tape Tapestry Set is so Blue Hawaii! 
A classic 1950s retro style featuring a button up shirt with coconut buttons in the original reproduction Alfred Shaheen pineapple, hibiscus, geomatic pattern. The shorts are sold separately, my husband doesn't usually wear this style of shorts so it was a new experience for him. The shorts are smocked around the waist & features an adjustable pull string. The shorts are lined on the inside & feature a little pocket on the side. 
This set runs a bit a small so I would check the size chart for the perfect fit.

1940s Susie Saddle // RoyalVintage

RoyalVintage Shoes
Today's style feature is all about SHOES I am so excited to review another style from one of my favorite footwear brands RoyalVintageShoesI did a review a few months back on one of their newer Spring/Summer styles called the "RITA" a gorgeous 1940s platform slingback, with darling laces & classic 40s details - click here to read all about them! 

I was so excited when I received the Brown/White Susie Saddle Shoes in the mail, my grandmother had a pair when she was younger in the iconic Black/White style & I couldn't resist getting a pair of my own. At first it was not easy deciding on which color I wanted the most & I think I argued with myself for at least a day or two before finalizing on a color. They offer the Susie Saddle in a two toned Navy/White, Brown/White, or Black/White, I finally decided on the brown & white color way. I went with that style because I have quite a few 1940s pieces that will pair up beautifully with them & I thought why not try something a little different. This type of shoe was a very popular style of footwear in the 1940s & 1950s, especially for Women & young girls. RoyalVintageShoes modeled their Classic Susie Saddle style after an Original Spalding Ladies' saddle shoe, I must say they really look & feel authentic. 
When ordering I did go with my usual size & found that they were a perfect fit, the quality is absolutely amazing they use high end materials such as real leather uppers, durable rubber soles with welt stitching, & the classic two tone is spot on. There is a cushioned pad near the arch of the shoe which I found to be quite comfortable, especially since I walked around in there for 4 or more hours. I would note that the saddle shoe style is tampered towards the toes, so do keep that in mind when ordering. Overall I love this reproduction of the classic scalding ladies, they are beautiful in person, even my grandmother said they looked very authentic, I also enjoyed pairing them with my 1950s Freddies of Pinewood jeans. I definitely recommend RoyalVintageShoes especially if you are looking for high quality vintage inspired footwear, they are priced reasonably & they really are amazing.
