Dapper & Disney

Dapper & Disney
Dapper Day is upon us & I am so excited to get all dressed up in my vintage best. Dapper Day's Spring outing in the parks is my favorite out of the two events, because I love wearing all my 1950s & 1960s vintage prom dresses. If you haven't heard of Dapper Day, it is an unofficial Disney event where you can dress up in your Vintage best & visit the Expo for workshops, shopping, & dancing. While at the Expo or inside the parks you will see some amazing Disney Inspired outfits & this style is called Disney-bounding & it has become quite the trend. Disney-bounding is all about being inspired by your favorite Disney character, & channeling them in your own clothes adding your own personal flair & style. If you are new to disney-bounding or any type of character bounding, you can simply match the characters signature colors, accessories, or even the patterns that they wear. This is my very first official Disney Bound & I am so excited to share my look which is inspired by "Princess/Queen Atta" from the Pixar Classic "A Bug's Life," I went with a 1960s inspired disney dapper bound because my personal style is vintage & with Dapper Day on the way I thought it would be cute to share. 
Princess Atta is a light purple ant with sparkly clear wings & towards the end of the movie she gets a gorgeous flower crown fit for a Queen. To resemble her gorgeous purple hue I am wearing my Lavender Ruffle Cupcake prom dress from Unique Vintage. I paired the dress with my true vintage silver lurex springolators to resemble her shimmery wings, & a bright pink floral crown to resemble her flower crown. Of course I had to bring along little Dot, she is my little sister after all. Once I attempted my first disney-bound I found myself thinking about a few more looks I could have achieved with this one dress, for example I could have done a Rapunzel bound or even Boo from Monsters Inc. A few of my favorite Disney-bounders have done looks inspired by their favorite Disney stores, restaurants, or rides isn't that so awesome?!
The looks are endless!!!
For my 1960s beauty Queen Atta look I used some of my favorite beauty products from Besame Cosmetics. I am wearing their Cashmere Foundation Stick in shade Bisque set with their Cashmere Powder Compact in shade Porcelain. For my brows I applied their Brown Cake Mascara dry, as you would use a brow powder. For my cheeks I applied their Delicate Rouge Blush in 1930s Raspberry. For my Lilac Pink eyeshadow, I applied Your Majesty on my lid from their I'm Wishing Palette & Raspberry Delicate Rouge on top for a custom Lilac color. For my cut crease I applied a darker purple shade any dark purple eyeshadow or liner will do. I am using their 1920s Black Cake Mascara applied wet for a sleek cat eye, I also applied this on my lower lash line. After applying my lashes I coated them with the 1940s Cream Mascara. Lastly I applied my new favorite rose pink hue lipstick in shade 1937 Love's First Kiss from their Limited Edition Snow White Collection. I did a 1960s French Twist Beehive using all of my hair, I have a lot of hair. My hair texture is very straight so I slept in large foam rollers the night before, which made rolling my hair into a French Twist a breeze. To achieve this hair style, you will need to tease your hair a lot, & I mean 80% of your hair if you have medium to long hair like I DO.
I can't wait to see all the lovely Disney-Bounders at Dapper Day, 
I hope you liked my first Disney Bound & I look forward to sharing a lot more Disney Inspired looks!
Be sure to tune in I have another Disney Dapper Bound coming soon before Dapper Day is here!

Spring Time Dame

A Spring Time Dame
Happy Spring! Spring time is one of my favorite seasons, I love that it is cool enough for all my fall favorites & warm enough for new spring beauties! Today I am featuring this lovely 1940s inspired mustard suit from MissCandyFloss. As you know I adore the 1940s it is one of my favorite eras for fashion, beauty, & of course films, so I really wanted this style feature to feel & look like a scene out of classic film. MissCandyFloss never disappoints when it comes to classic vintage reproduction, & this two piece suit is absolutely gorgeous, the mustard yellow hue is perfect for spring & any vintage gal. The 40s style blazer "Ivanna Mustardis sophisticated with a feminine touch, I love the slight peplum effect as it accentuates the waist beautifully, while pulling it in just enough for a classic hour glass appearance. I really adore the double collar with the two tone plaid print it is so darling. The "Juana Mustard" 40s pencil skirt in the matching hue is so lovely, the fabric is soft & stretchy making this the most comfortable pencil skirt ever! The Juana skirt has a darling eye-catching detail, a pleat kick back slit topped with a bow. I am in awe of this 1940s two piece, I can't wait to own all the colors! I paired this two piece with my favorite heels "Phyllis", in an off white satin material from Golden Age LA, my favorite lipstick "1941 Victory Red" from Besame Cosmetics, & topped it off with a Vintage Suitcase & Train Case for a perfect vintage head to toe look.

Delivery for Miss Carter

"Delivery for Miss Carter"
I am extremely excited to share what is in the mystery box from the most anticipated "Agent Carter" collection by Besame Cosmetics x Marvel. Agent Carter is my favorite female heroine, I first read about "Peggy Carter" in the early Captain America comics where she was portrayed a little differently than our beloved Agent, but she was still a great character in those early on issues. Today's Agent Cater is a strong heroine who dominates in a man's world, proving that she can play hard like the men in the SSR. Peggy knows her value & she is determined to show the world that a woman can conquer anything that comes her way. The hit tv series "Agent Carter" was set in the 1940s, an era where women were stuck doing desk work, & men were taking all the leads. After Steve Rogers *Captain America* is thought to be gone, Howard Stark finds himself in great need of assistance when he finds out he is being framed for supplying deadly weapons to bad guys. He reaches out to Peggy hoping she will secretly work as a double agent with his trusted butler Jarvis to help dispose of those weapons & clear his name. The tv series ended after two seasons, but the character made a huge impact & she has become a cherished character in the Marvel Universe.

When I found out that Besame Cosmetics teamed up with Marvel to create a top secret Agent Carter collection I was unbelievably thrilled, thee idea of my favorite vintage inspired cosmetic company making a collection based on my favorite female hero was so exciting I just couldn't believe it, & now I have a piece of the most anticipated collection in my hands. This mystery box was secretly sent out to those who signed up for the Agent Carter newsletter, once you received the newsletter in your inbox you were able to click a secret link that would reveal the option to order the Mystery Box. Before the box was released Besame gave out a parking ticket that had a code & if you were able to crack the code you were given some secret clippings with even more clues to try & solve. Of course I had to become an agent like Miss Carter to solve the mystery which I did. I ended up finding out that there was a hidden message from Howard regarding the numbers 102,103, & 104 which has a very important meaning as to what is in the mystery box.
The mystery box is actually a gorgeous 1940s faux crocodile inspired jewelry box containing a letter & photo from Howard himself. Revealing what is actually hidden within the jewelry box to find out keep reading..,
 I am really in awe of this packaging, it reminds me of my 1940s true vintage train case from Samsonite. I love the deep burgundy faux crocodile exterior & the SSR gold logo against the camel suede like interior.
 P.s isn't Howard a dream boat?
After reading the lovely letter from Mr. Stark I was eager to open the mystery compartment, I was then greeted with the numbers 102, 103, & 104 engraved on gold plated lipstick tubes. If you have seen the first season of Agent Carter you will remember the lipstick that packed a punch, Peggy uses 102 Sweet Dreams to knock out a man while searching for need to know information. I really love that Besame recreated an exact replica of the iconic lipstick tube that Peggy uses in the tv show, aside from her thigh gun holster the high tech lipstick is one of my favorite Agent Carter accessories.
102 Sweet Dreams 
 "A neutral red lipstick suitable for everyday wear. 
You must be careful with this one, a single kiss on the lips 
& your date will be out like a light. "
103 Forget Me Not 
 "A natural rose shade that looks like your lips but better! 
If someone spill the beans during a mission, I know it'd never be you, a single kiss on the lips 
& they won't remember the last twelve hours."
104 Always Be True 
 "A highly pigmented & saturated red. Dense, bright, & deep. 
Sometimes you don't have the luxury of good cop, bad cop.
One kiss on the lips with this shade & no one will able to lie to you. "
The formula is a creamy smooth matte finish great for long wear!
102 is Red Velvet, a color I absolutely love & adore, I actually wear it quite often.
103 is Dusty Rose, very mauve & soft perfect for everyday wear.
104 is Red Hot Red, a fiery bright & bold red that Marilyn Monroe would definitely wear. 

These lipsticks are apart of the current Besame collection however, they are absolutely dreamy to wear. 
They are not limited edition lipstick shades so you can purchase the classic became bullet version over & over!
The Agent Carter numbered tubes however are limited edition. 

**Please note these swatches are taken under florescent lighting indoors,
 the actual color may vary deepening on the lighting.

So Art Deco

So Art Deco
On the blog today is a style feature inspired by the glamorous 1920s, an era with heavily coated lashes & fringe beaded beauties. This stunning plum fringe glass beaded gown is from my favorite flapper dress maker Gatsby Lady, all of her lovely creations are hand beaded & made out of quality fabrics. Gatsby Lady designs the most beautiful gowns, dresses, purses, & more. Every design has a unique authentic vintage feel & as soon as I put this gown on for the first time, I truly felt like I stepped back in time for a 1920s roaring party! The Glam Fringe Maxi is dreamy & the Art Deco embellishment details are eye catching, this gown is absolutely gorgeous in person. This Plum shade is moody yet elegant making for a perfect fit in the 1920s, I am in love with the sheer sleeves & glass beaded trim with the fringe draping over like a caplet. This fringe beaded beauty has two tiers of fringe towards the bottom making this the perfect dress to shimmy & shake. The fit is perfect & GatsbyLady kindly made the dress shorter in length for me as I am on the petite side 5'1. When ordering I would ordering I would recommend ordering your regular size for a relaxed true to size fit, however if you want a true 1920s fit I would order up for that 20s draping look.  The Eliza Headband is the perfect accessory for an iconic flapper girl look, the Eliza comes in a matching plum shade with the same glass beading sequin details as the Glam Fringe Maxi.
