I'm feeling really happy about this post shot in McKinney, one of my favorite historical towns. This dress from Stop Staring! is the perfect summer day dress. You can style it so many different ways and it's so lightweight that you won't burn up in the heat. I styled it with late 1940's accessories to make it as authentic as possible.
Stop Staring! was created by the talented Alicia Estrada. Like me, she shares a love for everything vintage which drove her to create this brand. Her vintage inspired dresses have been seen on every celebrity and in every magazine. They are known for the way they flatter and hug a woman's curves, and I feel like a million bucks in mine. Check out these gorgeous dresses at http://www.stopstaringclothing.com/ and find the one I'm wearing at http://www.stopstaringclothing.com/beila-fitted-dress-whiteblack-dot-1633.html.
Are my seams straight? Only authentic 1940's Cuban heel stockings for this outfit.
My inspiration for this outfit comes from the "Polka Dot Girl", Miss Chili Williams herself, known for wearing polka dots.
Both the bag and heels are from the 1940's
I swear by Besame Cosmetics http://besamecosmetics.com/. Not only are they vintage inspired, down to color by decade, and packaging, but they are such long lasting lipsticks. I am wearing Besame Red, their classic color, and a favorite of mine.
I was lucky enough to stop at an estate sale one day, and unexpectedly found an Art Deco compact with my initials engraved on it. It's so beautiful and has the original rouge still inside it. It also perfectly matches my Besame lipstick.
At the end of the shoot this man walked up to me and was very kind enough to give us an amazing magic show. He performs at the local magic store in McKinney and he is no joke. I still have yet to figure out how he performed his tricks and that's what makes him a wonderful magician. His name is Mr. Stan. He is very talented and was a pleasure to talk to.
