Dita Von Teese - Halloween Look

Happy Halloween! For Halloween this year, I just had to dress as one of my inspirations, Dita Von Teese. From being a beautiful burlesque/pin-up model, to her street style, her amazing vintage style inspires me to upgrade my wardrobe to a more 40's attire.

Featured in this shoot are these gorgeous Manolo Blahnik's that I snagged at one of my favorite vintage stores, Bon Ton, for 20 bucks. I highly recommend going there. It is located in Forreston, Texas. There is an entire floor of vintage clothing and I find myself spending hours in there every time I go. 

Here is the beauty herself that inspired me, Dita Von Teese:

Rose Colored Shorts

My Monday afternoon consisted of having a long awaited photo shoot with my good friend Jarrod Fresquez, who just so happens to be an amazing photographer. After being almost completely tossed around by the wind, here are my favorite shots.

Featured in this look is what appears to be normal red shorts BUT they aren't any ordinary red shorts. They are children's pajama shorts, probably a boys, that I found to fit me from a thrift store. I will now continue to look in the kid's section for more of these because they are so comfortable. 

As usual, the rest is vintage. I used an old polka dotted scarf as a bandanna. This is just a simple, casual day look for me, and there's not much to it.

While vintage shopping the other day I came across this dress for two dollars. Not only was that a steal of a deal for such a well made vintage dress, the first thing that came to my mind was TWIGGY. One of my favorite models, Twiggy is such a fun and pretty face that has become so iconic in our world. And I just had to do a look inspired by, and in honor of her.

No matter the era, black and white always works as the classic go to. I have a hard time escaping it, but I have learned there are so many different ways you can incorporate it and change it, that it can possibly almost never look the same. 

As usual, everything featured is vintage, besides the glasses. I just love these straps that go across these flats, which has a slight pointed toe. The great thing about black shoes is that they instantly slim your foot. Of course the trick works for clothes as well, but having nude or black shoes will always make your feet appear thinner and smaller.

Something that really helped me pull the makeup together for this look was this step by step photo demonstration of Twiggy herself doing her signature makeup. Try it out for yourself. It is a very fun look to do for a 60's theme.

A big thank you to the gorgeous and legendary Twiggy for inspiring me!

Until The Last Of Days

It has been quite a while since I posted on here. I guess I have been too busy collecting vintage pieces for my blog, such as this entire outfit. Go figure. Just about everything you see are vintage thrifted pieces.

I wanted to keep this look very reminiscent of classic Christian Dior. He is one of my favorite designers and his 1950's clothing inspires me to keep his style as part of my daily routine.

Vintage kitten heels have become a staple in my wardrobe. You can wear them with just about anything. They are the perfect medium between flats and high heels. You can dress them up or dress them down.

Current obsession of mine: hunting for the perfect circle skirts. Due to my height of 4'10, I can't pull off long skirts like most average women. Thankfully for my vintage taste, it has been easy to find them in my exact size and length. 

Gloves need to be worn by everyone. Yes this is just my opinion and may be inspired by the Ebola outbreak, but who said we can't be fashionable while dealing with it? These aren't so protective, but they are vintage fingerless lace gloves so that's okay.

The other inspiration behind this look is found on the April 1st, 1950 cover of Vogue:
