Hello my lovelies. Has this week been exceptionally long for anyone else or was it just me? Well regardless, it is finally the weekend hooray, and I have a wonderful post to share with you all. Today I am featuring Restricted shoes, a family-owned and opperated business that encourages all women to express their own personal style how they see fit, and is there any better way to express yourself than through shoes? I think not.
Crop Top: Charlotte Russe/Similar
Shoes: Restricted Shoes Well aren’t these shoes just a darling culmination of everything I love in footwear! First off the oxford design is superb, the height and stability of a wedge is killer, and can I just say that a T-strap detailing will get me everytime? I mean there is a reason the T-strap hasn’t been out of style since it first hit the scene in the 20’s. Plus these bad boys are really comfortable, honestly I was rather blown away by how soft the faux leather is, translations I’m not going to get blisters *Hallelujah Chorus* ;) all in all I could not be more thrilled by the shoes, they are stylish, comfortable, and positively timeless, what more could a girl want?
I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you check out Restricted Shoes. Happiest of Fridays!
Hey cats and kittens so this week’s Costumes You Can Wear Again might just be dancing on the edge of being able to be worn again.
But I liked this outfit too much so much I had to share, and if you like something enough you kind of adopt a “to hell with acceptable clothes” mentality, and now that I think about it I have dressed as a flapper on 3 different occasions, so maybe its a more wearable look than I realized! ;)Just casually dancing on the edge of acceptable fashion choices ;)
Eyeshadow: NYX Smokey Palette
Lipcolor: NYX Shade Transylvania
Head Scarf: Vintage/Similar
Head Chain: Old Necklace I have no idea where I got it so I suggest using a similar necklace or headband
Necklace: Forever 21/Similar
Gloves: Davids Bridal
Dress: Homemade from a slip and a fringey wrap, so you can do something similar, buy this cheaper alternative from Forever 21, or spring for this stellar dress from Unique Vintage. In fact Unique Vintage has a whole range of flapper dresses, accessories, and shoes so I might suggest checking that out ;)
I hope that you all enjoyed this look and that you have a very Happy Wednesday!
This week’s Fashion Friday will be featuring none other than the incredible Julie Mollo! I actually had the great pleasure of meeting this lovely lady when I was in Brooklyn back in May, and I was immediately drawn to her, she just exudes confidence and has such a playful spirit, and her sense of style is the perfect blend of feminine and badass retro babe. These wonderful attributes are carried right into Julie’s designs and its no surprise that several big names have taken notice and commisioned Mrs Mollo to create pieces for them, one of these “Big Names” is none other than Katy Perry! Katy Perry’s style has always been one of the things I most loved about her, and I’ll admit there are several looks of hers I’ve tried to recreate. Now many of us cannot commision designers and don’t have teams to make us look fab…But we can still look like stars because Julie sells her pieces to the masses as well as musicians, performers, and the like. Isn’t that wonderful?forever twirlingand pretending to be a ballerinaMy mom was standing out of shot so naturally I had to make a face at her ;)
Blouse: Hot Topic/Similar
Jacket: Forever 21
Belt: Pinup Girl Clothing
Tutu: Julie Mollo I would like to extend a huge thank you to Julie for understanding how so many of us ladies wanted nothing more than to be ballerinas! Now I may not be able to dance en pointe, or just dance in general for that matter, but that does not mean I cannot rock a tutu. This glorious tutu is made from 8 layers of wonderful bouncy tulle and the tie is made from cotton sateen, also another fun factor about the tie is you can tie a bow, knot it, and wear it either fastened in the back or front, its entirely up to you! Since this piece is a true to style tutu it is a bit sheer so I wore a white pencil skirt underneath mine, but you could wear a slip, tights, or even rock a body suit! Julie creates pieces that are easily personalized, and knows that fashion is meant to be fun and a form of expression! So all of her pieces are meant to be styled from one extreme to another, so whether you want to embrace the full girly girl look or want to add a little bit of edge to your attire Mrs Mollo has what you’re looking for.
Heels: Charlotte Russe/Similar
I really hope you all liked this post and that you check out the always fabulous Julie Mollo. Happy Friday!
I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to post today as I was feeling rather lousy but thankfully I am feeling much better and have a rather fun costume to share!
I don’t know why it took me this long to put together a mime costume, its so simple and most of us probably have a striped shirt, dress, etc that would totally work to pull this look off. Just add a few finishing touches like a beret, some outrageous makeup, and even some gloves if you really want to amp the look up, and you have a fantastic costume that looks like it took actual planning to piece together ;)And of course I had to pose with our little scarecrow people.

Hope you all enjoyed this post and that you have a great week! Happy Wednesday.
Woo hoo we have made it through yet another work week, aren’t Friday’s just the best? Even when I do work the weekends I still look forward to Fridays because I really do love posting my Fashion Fridays, and when I have a brand or product that I’m excited to share with you all I’m especially anxious for the weekend to get here.
Well as far as I was concerned this weekend couldn’t get here soon enough, because I have found the most adorable outrageously comfortable shoes in existence, and they are from the absolutely stellar company Miz Mooz. This extraordinary brand started off in a basement in New York City, and in traditional New York City style they grew to incredible heights, and now have their products stocked by several independent retailers. If you check out their products you are sure to see why they have had such success. I’m a relatively picky person so its rare for me to like several products from one company, but I can honestly say I would wear every single pair of shoes Miz Mooz has. Their attention to detail is really the clincher for me, so many companies have almost identical looking products, because let’s face it you can only reinvent the “heel” so many times ;) but somehow Miz Mooz manages to capture the classic elements every shoe lover looks for yet still have that unique edge every individual wants.
Because breaking in a new pair of heels requires one to twirl…its a very scientific process ;)
And because you all need to know that silly “wanna be chorus girl dance moves” happen behind scenes.
Necklace: Belonged to my father/Similar
Dress: Go Insane
Petticoat: Malco Modes
Heels: Miz Mooz How do I even begin to explain the Safari’s? The Safaries are flawless, haha but seriously these heels are absolutely wonderful, the oxford and wing tip details make them a stylish classic everyone will love and want, but beauty isn’t everything you know. How many of us have a pair (or several pairs) of shoes that we bought just because they’re pretty, only to later realize we made a huge mistake, and these pretty shoes feel about as good as walking on legos? Well Miz Mooz knows their stuff and has created a beautiful pair of shoes that just so happen to also be the most comfortable pair of heels I’ve ever worn. The stacked heel is a reasonable height so its easy on your arches, there is a built in cushion too so that’s especially good for your arches, and these shoes are made out of the softest smoothest leather I’ve ever experienced, I could probably run in these and not get a single blister. In fact these shoes are so perfect I’m a little angry, thank you Miz Mooz for ruining me for all other shoes haha ;)
So if you’re in the market for some great shoes I highly recommend you make the investment and get yourself a pair from Miz Mooz, you will not be sorry.
I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you have a great weekend. Happy Friday my loves.
Hello all! I have yet another fun Halloween look to share. This week I decided to try my hand at channeling my favorite consulting detective and high functioning sociopath Sherlock!
I have to admit I REALLY love this outfit, the purple dress is very reminiscent of the infamous Purple Shirt of Sex (don’t be alarmed its a fandom thing), I feel like my coat is pretty spot on, my tights remind me ever so slightly of the glorious wallpaper that is in Holmes and Watson’s flat, and what’s more English than a pair of oxfords?
Ya I’m pretty proud of this look and hope you all love it as much as I do.
a little side by side comparison ;)ya the seriousness never lasts long ;)
Dress: Queen of Heartz
Tights: Forever 21/Similar
So what do you guys think? Was I able to do the look justice? Are you a fan of BBC’s Sherlock? If so are you dying for season 4 as much as I am? I’d love to hear from you, so drop me a line even if its just to say hi. Happy Wednesday!
This week’s Fashion Friday will be featuring Daddy O’s a company I came across when I first started my journey into pinup, so you can imagine my excitement when I finally got to feature them here on my blog.
Unlike many of the companies and stores that I feature Daddy O’s caters to gentlemen as well. Yes so that means the fella in your life can be sporting some equally stylish duds, from Bowling shirts to belts they’ve got it all, in fact they even carry bowling shirts for little boys, which I have got to say is one of the cutest things ever…and I’m already planning outfits for my little nephew ;)
Since Daddy O’s carries a number of brands such as Stop Staring, Steady Clothing, and Lucky 13 just to name a few, you are guaranteed to find something suited just for you. I ended up falling in love with this little number from Stop Staring and I’m sure you can understand why.
Dress: Daddy O’s Where do I begin with this dress? The fabulous lapels? The fact that the halter is gorgeous but can also be removed if you’re feeling like being sassy and strapless? Or should I just talk about what jumped out at me most? THE PEPLUM DETAILING! Is there anything more classically feminine and wondrously flattering as peplum? I ordered a medium and I’d say it fits quite well, as a reference for you my measurements are 36″ 27.5″ 36″. Now I have a few wiggle dresses but most of them have been made from a thicker material so I might recommend wearing shapewear with this particular dress, I should have honestly, but most of my clothes are still in boxes, oh the joys of moving house ;) But anyway back to the dress, its a stunner of a piece and I can see it easily being a pinup staple that gets worn all year round! In conclusion I am thrilled with my choice.
I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you check Daddy O’s out. Happy Friday my loves!
