I will make no excuses for lack of posting…But I had a little freetime this week and I thought hey I should post a little look for you all. This week I am featuring the hottest little black dress I’ve ever had the good fortune to wear! The dress is The Vamp from Pinup Girl Clothing.
Hair Flower: Gift from Miss Amy May
Earrings: Charlotte Russe/Similar
Dress: Pinup Girl Clothing I actually tried on this dress when I went the the pinup girl clothing boutique many moons ago and fell in love instantly…but alas I was a little too broke to buy it at the time…but as the saying goes “Good things come to those who wait”. The dress went on sale, and is still on sale I might add, so I finally bought my PUG first love. The Vamp is the perfect LBD, form fitted to show off the curves, yet modest enough you wouldn’t feel awkward if you ran into your Grandma while out and about. The fabric is a sturdy cotton poly blend but still comfortable, as reference I am 36″ 27.5″ 36″ and the Medium fits me quite comfortably. Basically The Vamp is everything you could want out of a LBD…But if black isn’t your thing this dress comes in other colourways as well!
I hope you all enjoyed this post and thank you for putting up with me and my lack of posting. Happy Friday!
Phew I didn’t know if I was actually going to be able to keep my promise for continued fashion posts this week, things got a little hectic, but I made time for a shoot yesterday, and might I just say how thrilled I am to be sharing it with you all. This week’s post is featuring the classically beautiful shoes from Parisxox! Shoes really are the icing on the cake when it comes to any outfit, and when these shoes just so happen to be “made for” one of your most favorite dresses you know the shoe gods are smiling down on you 😉
Oh goodness gracious these heavenly heels make me happy enough to dance…they’re also comfortable enough to do so in. Score! Parisxox deals mainly in wedding shoes but that doesn’t mean you have to wait til you are tying the knot to get in on the fun. Whether it be a prom, a performance, a formal, or a “I just want some gorgeous shoes day” you cannot go wrong with ordering a pair of lovely shoes from Arbie Goodfellow. Finding the right shoe in the right color is no easy task but thankfully Parisxox changes all that, there are over 100 different shades to choose from, different heel heights and shoe structure, and great add ons and customization to ensure you will be getting everything you wanted and more!
One silly picture for good measure 😉
Earrings: Gift you can get a similar pair from Claires for cheap or if you prefer you can spring for cultured pearls from Macys.
“Fur wrap”: Its actually a faux fur throw blanket haha but RetroVintageWeddings actually has a rather lovely vintage faux fur wrap
Gloves: Gift but you can get a pair from Ebay
Dress: Time Machine Vintage
Heels: Parisxox I am through the roof happy with my heels, I love their classic old Hollywood shape, vibrant Riviera Turquoise blue color, and that they just so happen to have the perfect amount of sparkle to them as well. I’m not into big and flashy but that doesn’t mean I want boring either. Arbie completely understand the fine line between festive and over the top, she has such an amazing eye for detail and is such a joy to talk to. You can really see all the passion and creativity that go into Parisxox pieces and I HIGHLY recommend you consider them for your next shoe purchase.
I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you have a wonderful weekend. Happy Friday!
Hooray finally time for Pt 2 of my Queen of Heartz feature! If you missed Pt 1 here’s the link to it https://sarahforshaw.wordpress.com/2014/01/03/fashion-friday-featuring-queen-of-heartz-pt-1/ I had been sick with bronchitis since New Years, and I am just now starting to feel human again, all that to say sorry it took a while to get around to shooting this magnificent dress.
I am madly in love with the New Brenda dress from http://www.queenofheartz.com/ From the scalloped edging to the peplum detailing this dress exudes glamour, making it perfect for any special event. Valentines is right around the corner guys 😉 and it’s about to be Wedding season, so whether you’re a bride looking for the perfect bridesmaid dress, or you’re going to be a guest at a wedding the New Brenda is the best choice you could possibly make!
Ignore my ugly yogi feet 😉
I feel like this shot showcases just how beautiful a shade of purple this dress is.
Earrings: Sam Moons a forever ago purchase so of course I cannot find them but Icing has a lovely alternative http://www.icing.com/icing/us/goods/icing+commerce+root/cat1800040/earrings/p82423/crystal+and+rhinestone+chandelier+drop+earrings/
Dress: Queen of Heartz http://www.queenofheartz.com/dresses/brenda-new-look.html This dress is a spotlight on your figure, it emphasizes your beautiful feminine curves but hides those er um “curves” we as women are not thrilled about. My measurements are 36″ 27 1/2″ 36″ and the size medium fits wonderfully! You can really tell Letty Tennant is a woman who understands quality, from fabric to construction this dress knocks it out of the park. If you’re searching for the perfect dress look no further than the New Brenda from Queen of Heartz.
Shoes: Payless I bought them years ago but target has a similar pair http://www.target.com/p/women-s-de-blossom-nissa-heeled-slide-sandal-assorted-colors/-/A-14702127#prodSlot=medium_1_3
