Extra Extra Read All About It!

Fall is almost here & I am already dressing for the season, wearing my favorite era in Fashion 1940s. I love 40s fashion especially the color palette with shades like Wine, Cream, Gold, Brown, & Noir. I just love that Warm Autumn palette it adds a nice contrast against my dark brown eyes & fair skin tone. I have been wanting to try High Waited Trousers from Unique Vintage for quite sometime, but I was always concerned about the length since I am 5"1. When I saw these lovely 1940s Sailor Style Trousers I just fell in love with the color & look, I decided to hem them. The result was perfect, this style actually makes me appear taller than I actually am, & I don't feel like I am drowning in fabric. 
These High Waisted Trousers pair up wonderfully with this Cream Vintage Inspired Collared Button Up Blouse from Unique Vintage, it has such darling details like the ties on the sleeves & the vertical pleating down the front. This chiffon blouse is so soft & comfortable for daily wear, I love its 1940s charm. I accessorized this look with my husbands Great Grandmothers Vintage Beret, a Besame Lipstick Brooch, & 1940s T Strap Heels. This is definitely a look I would wear casually out & about, because it is so comfy & chic, you could style it with some classic 40s oxfords like Katherine Hepburn

The Glamour Years

The Glamour Years Aboard the RMS Queen Mary was from 1936 to 1939, this beautiful ship has so much history & charm. I was very excited to be a guest at the Queen Mary's 13th Annual Art Deco Festival, heading back in time to it's Early Years as a Luxury Ship to the Royals, Celebrities, & Upper Class. I was so honored when the Queen Mary asked me to host a Giveaway on my Instagram to win a pair of Tickets to this Classy & Jazzy Event. My husband & I stayed on board the ship for our Honeymoon in their Deluxe Suite, which was absolutely stunning. The room had its own Private Living Room, as well as Two Full Baths, & a stunning Ocean View. 
Observation Bar, Art Deco
While staying on this beautiful historic ship, I really wanted to learn about its History. We took the Glory Days Tour which was a wonderful learning experience, & if you are interested in the Ships History I highly recommend taking that tour. The Queen Mary also offers the Haunted Tour, a tour guide takes you to all the Haunted Hot Spots on the Ship where Ghosts have been said to be seen. Did you know the Ship had different levels for different classes, & even the decor for each level of the ship was different depending on the class?
I was so excited to wear this stunning Flapper Dress from the GatsbyLady London, I have been following her fabulous creations for quite some time. Her designs are so detailed & absolutely stunning, each design has its own unique details like this show stopping Lilac Beatrice Fringe Style. Just look at all those details, from the beaded fringe to the swirls, & the zigzags G O R G E O U S!
The fit is perfect I am fairly Petite & the regular length hit just passed my knees, the Lilac Slip came with the dress & was also a perfect fit with adjustable straps. GastbyLady London offers a wonderful range of sizes from Petite to Plus Size. When I first saw this dress on their website I fell in love, the Lilac color was so captivating; upon  looking at this design I started to think of the 1920s beauty make up I could do & how the Lilac Jewel Tone would look with my skin tone & raven hair. 
The Beatrice dress really helped me achieve that Iconic 1920s Flapper look, I styled this Lilac Jewel Tone hue with my Vintage Silver Art Deco earrings, Vintage Chiffon Ivory Gloves, & the matching Lulu Cap inspired by the Juliet Caps in the early 20s. I really wanted my images to look as if we went back in time to visit the Queen Mary during its Glamour Years, I styled my outfit, make up, hair, & photos to capture that look & feel. We found some stunning spots to do a mini shoot & I really love how they came out. The lighting aboard the Queen Mary was perfect very moody & dark, those shots are my favorite I love a dark moody color palette.

Here Comes Mrs.SweetHeart

SWEETHEART
Today's look has me feeling like a 1950s SweetHeart! 
These adorable high waisted Sweet Heart shorts are from one of my favorite Authentic Vintage Inspired Clothing Brands Vivien of Holloway. I adore their True Vintage Esthetic, I always feel like a Vintage Dream in their designs & this duo is my latest Summer Obsession. The Halter Neck Top in Cotton Red is so flattering to my body type, it really hugs my curves in all the right places. The Top has built in boning to nip your waist giving you that Iconic 1950s Hourglass
Doesn't it pair up beautifully with these darling shorts?
This is my first pair of Vivien of Holloway Shorts & I have to say I am in LOVE! I have always been one to skip the shorts isle, every time I would try on a pair of shorts they never covered my cheeks & I personally prefer my bum to be covered. When I saw these adorable Vivien of Holloway shorts I noticed right away that they were longer than most "High Waisted Shorts" out on the market, another bonus was they are actually High Waisted; rising an inch above my natural waist! I love that these shorts are replicas of a 1950s style, they look & feel authentic, the waistband cinches my waist perfectly giving me a flattering waist to hip ratio without any shape wear! The Sweetheart pattern is so darling, I had HEART EYES when I saw them on their website, the pattern is perfect in every way. These shorts have two front pockets, that can easily hold an iPhone 6 Plus & even some major essentials like my Besame Lipstick & Travel LipBrush.

Sheer & Dots

Retro & Feminine; two wonderful words to describe this beautiful 1950s Inspired Swing Dress from Unique Vintage. I adore a good 1950s Swing Dress, & this one just so happens to be one of my new favorite styles. The Teal Swiss Dot Garden State Mesh Dress is perfection! With such darling details such as the sweetheart bodice, which also has a built in bra pads for bust support. Another darling feature are the sleeves which can be worn as a Halter Style, Off the Shoulder, or slightly passed your collar bone. This lovely dress has a few layers under that help give your skirt that full 50s swing shape, no petticoat required! 
Sheer & Polka Dots pair up so perfectly together, so Feminine & Sweet. 
To keep a Retro 1950s Esthetic I paired my dress with Sheer Ivory Gloves, a Sheer 1950s Head Scarf, Glitter Crystal Heels, & a Vintage Lucite Confetti Purse. I love how this Vintage Inspired Look can be worn for different occasions, for a Dapper Day Out, a Special Event, & even as a Bridesmaid dress for those Vintage Brides out there. You can shop this lovely style in a few other hues as well I chose Teal as it pairs up beautifully with my raven hair & signature bold red lips. Of course I am wearing my favorite Vintage Inspired Cosmetic Company Besame Cosmetics, featuring 1941 Victory Red Lipstick, 1969 Soft Pink Delicate Rouge Blush, & Bisque Cashmere Stick Foundation.
