Fashion Friday Featuring Time Machine Vintage Pt 2.

Happy Fashion Friday my loves! I finally have Pt 2 of my Time Machine Vintage feature ready for you all, if you didn’t see Pt 1 it can be read here . This is quite different from my first look but I love them both equally and I think it just goes to show how vastly talented Kim is! To go from the understated almost bohemian like beachware look of the 20s/30s to the drama and glamour of the 60’s is absolutely mind blowing to me, clearly Time Machine Vintage knows their stuff, and researches extensively making sure every little detail is on point.

As you can tell from Amanda’s face this was my last full day in Salisbury, as you can see from mine I was in complete denial. I did not want to leave and I cannot wait to get back.

 

Photography: Amanda Grace Photography Amanda is an absolute joy to be around and I don’t know if she could take a bad picture if she tried. Whatever your portrait needs Amanda is your girl.

Dress: Time Machine Vintage Where to begin with this dress? The beautiful elegant blue fabric with its slight sheen, ability to stay pretty much wrinkle free after it was packed into my luggage, and the fact that is was incredibly comfortable? Or perhaps the perfect details like the little gem on the bust, the lapels, or the glorious bow detail in the back? Or maybe just the fact that this dress is so magnificently constructed that it fit like a second skin? Time Machine Vintage surpasses all expectations and makes you feel even more beautiful than you thought possible. Kim is fabulously talented and so incredibly helpful when it comes to questions and concerns on sizing. She is even more fantastic than her garments which is saying something! Whatever the occasion a Time Machine Vintage piece will be the most glorious icing on the cake.

Shoes: Payless These have quickly become my go to summer sandal.

 

I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you check out Time Machine Vintage and Amanda Grace Photography. Happy Friday!

Fashion Friday Featuring Pollypop Boutique

As many of you like minded ladies know dressing in the pinup rockabilly style can really do a number on your bank account, many of the pinup style dresses require yards of fabric and in turn cost a good deal. I don’t mind spending a little more for these types of dresses because I understand that if I tried to make the dress myself just the fabric costs alone would be double the price of said dress. However when I find a company that sells quality pinup and rockabilly dresses at a bargain you can be certain I will be singing their praises and letting you all in on my find. Pollypop Boutique you are a godsend! Not only are they a one stop shop for all your pinup wardrobe needs: dresses, separates, accessories, and even hair products! But the highest price I could find was $73! Which is amazing considering that is usually the clearance prices of most vintage reproduction type stores.  Oh also if reproduction isn’t your thing Pollypop also sells actual vintage! How amazing is that?6131PicMonkey CollageIMG_61616152IMG_6187IMG_6230Vintage Scarf: Season’s Best in Downtown Salisbury Maryland. I absolutely loved this store! If you’re ever in the area you must check this place out! I could have spent all day there stumbling onto one treasure after the other. From Jewelry to Furniture Seasons Best has is it all!

Dress: Pollypop Boutique Absolutely adore this dress, with it’s classic boatneck neckline, waist cinching belt, and perfectly lively and fresh mint hue make it a year round staple piece. Pair it with sandals for spring and summer, and come fall and winter it is going to look positively darling with a cardigan and stockings!

Wedges: Payless bout them years ago, but I like another pair of payless wedges that are too dissimilar and the newer pair I have are worlds more comfortable.

 

I hope you all check out Pollypop and that you have a wonderful weekend. Happy Friday guys!

 

Fashion Friday Featuring Kenley Collins

This week’s Fashion Friday will be featuring the incredible Kenley Collins.

Kenley Collins love of fashion started at the young age of 16 when she would reconstruct vintage pieces for herself and her friends to wear. Then after graduating from Florida State University with a marketing degree, Kenley moved on to New York and started working in a sales position at a clothing company. Well less than a year later Kenley was promoted to a position in design where she continued her craft and developed her own fashion niche.

It wasn’t long before the rest of the world to take notice of Kenley’s distinctive vintage inspired pieces and fall in love with her talent. Ms Collins has appeared on Bravo’s Project Runway, Lifetime’s Project Runway Allstars,  Live with Regis and Kelly, The Biography Channel, and E’s Oscar 2011 pre-show. Kenley’s pieces are sold throughout various boutiques, available on her site kenleycollins.com, and can quite often be seen on pop music sensation Ariana Grande. If that isn’t enough to entice you to check her clothes out let the following masses of pictures do so. I was having way too much fun during this shoot 😉

56114515347

Flower Clip: Claires

Gentlemen Prefer Dress: Kenley Collins This piece is literally everything I look for in a dress. Beautiful print, versatility of wear, and incredible construction! The royal blue stenciling is absolutely out of this world, believe it or not its even more beautiful in person!The fact that this dress is made out of a slight stretch cotton means its casual enough for everyday wear, but the obvious beauty of it means you won’t have to try hard to dress it up for an elegant evening out, and the construction is positively flawless, there is a bit of boning in the bodice that keep’s the lines of this dress very clean, and the size chart is so spot on! All of the attention to detail make this dress feel custom-made, which is what every woman wants, right? If you’re currently looking for the perfect spring/summer dress I cannot recommend The Gentlemen Prefer Dress highly enough.

Shoes: DSW I wear these shoes so much I think I should invest in different colors 😉

I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you check Kenley Collins out! She is such a true talent, her eye for detail makes her pieces timeless but her playful sense of style makes all of her designs seem new and fresh! Oh and speaking of new be sure to keep tabs on this lady cause her new line drops May 1st, so exciting! I love you guys Happy Friday!

Fashion Friday Winter Wonderland

Outfit Repeater

outfit repeaterRepeating outfits is something I am guilty of all the time, I’m not sure if its out of laziness or lack of clothes, either reason I don’t really care. Anyway here is a look of an outfit I wore while I was out of town on a roadtrip. I wanted to be comfortable but I didn’t want to look like a slob either. I think this outfit has the perfect comfort to style ratio.
974097739801we have fun during our shoots

975497599762Ya good fun.

Now if you’re not too concerned with comfort and you’re not going to be jumping around 😉 you can always opt for a pair of killer heels.98909907These are my “sitting shoes”9924988599369872I hope you all enjoyed this look and have a wonderful weekend.

Fashion Friday Texas Fall Fashion.

Let me clarify that this is a “Texas fall look” we’re not as lucky as you people who are getting to wear tights, cardigans, and the like. It’s still in the 80’s here but after 100+ this feels pretty darn nice. So here’s the look.
90689117924391869156909092449289Ermagerd Permpkins! You guys pumpkins mean it’s fall! Clearly that makes me outrageously happy!

926793079341919992659137

Basically this entire look is from older items in my closet so just assume the links you are getting are not the exact thing.

White Blouse: Cotton On.  http://www.charlotterusse.com/product/entity/229487.uts

Black Undershirt: Stole it from my sister but H&M has inexpensive undershirts http://www.hm.com/us/product/13795?article=13795-E#article=13795-A

Fashion Friday Featuring Onzie’s Fall Line

Hey guys sorry I didn’t post a Fashion Friday last week. I was feeling awful. But I am feeling much better now, I think part of my feeling better is due to the fact that I am in love. I am in love with Onzie’s new fall line! The prints, cuts, colors its all so perfect! You can check out their entire fall collection here http://www.theonzie.com/ and here are the goodies I received from Onzie

8652as always its all giggles during the shoot

8665I am completely obsessed with my top, the back detailing is so feminine and fun!

Yoga Mat: Affirmats http://www.affirmats.com/collections/all-products-1/products/look-how-pretty-you-are

I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you get yourself some Onzie gear. I cannot sing enough praises for Onzie, they are an all American made company which is very hard to find these days, the clothes are just as comfortable as they are beautiful, not to mention very well made, and their customer service is incredible. They are so sweet and helpful you feel like you’re talking to a friend not a business person. So I encourage you to show this company some love and I hope you all have an incredible weekend!

Fashion Friday Can It Be Fall Already?

Is everyone else dying for it to be fall already or is it just me? I want to layer, wear boots, and hats. But alas I live in Texas and it is only now starting to be bearable, that means around 90 degrees for those of you who don’t live here. So here is my best attempt at a fall look that wont result in a heatstroke.

8562863086188564clearly the whole wearing a cardigan thing didn’t last long.

8605My best snob face 😉

85968579

Headband: Fished it out of one of my ribbon nick knack bins. But this headband from Forever 21 is similar http://www.forever21.com/Product/Product.aspx?BR=f21&Category=hair-accessories-headbands&ProductID=1030188061&VariantID=

Cardigan: Old Navy I bought is a few winters ago so they don’t have exactly the same one but they have some really great cardis regardless http://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/product.do?vid=1&pid=638142002

Dress: Cotton On bought it on sale so the print I’m wearing is not on their site but they always have this cut of dress, which I am thrilled about.http://us.cottonon.com/shop/product/jenny-dress-blue-foulard/

Flats: Payless. Another purchase that happened a while back but they have similar flats nonetheless http://www.payless.com/store/product/detail.jsp?catId=cat10088&subCatId=cat10276&skuId=132563080&productId=69922&lotId=132563&category=&catdisplayName=Womens

Hope you all enjoyed this Fashion Friday and that you have a wonderful weekend.

Fashion Friday featuring Cotton On.

As many of you may have noticed a good deal of my wardrobe is from Cotton On. But can you really blame me? Their clothes are always beautiful, they constantly have sales, and not the trickster kind of sales where you actually aren’t saving money but honest to goodness sales, and they are an awesome company that has a true sense of responsibility, you can find out all about the Cotton On Foundation here to learn all about the way they are improving the world and helping others http://www.cottononfoundation.org/ but what I think is really great they make it incredibly easy for customers to make donations right at the checkout! No fussy paperwork to fill out no lifetime commitments have to be made, you can just make a donation then and there.
84368506844285428452855485138448Headwrap: Its just a ribbon I pulled out of my ribbon box but Top Shop has a cute alternative http://us.topshop.com/en/tsus/product/bags-accessories-1702229/hair-accessories-70519/headbands-70691/polka-dot-wire-headband-136848?refinements=category~%5b210046%7c208709%5d&bi=1&ps=20 and so does claires  http://www.claires.com/store/us/goods/hair/cat1260198/headbands/p54519/polka+dot+knotted+fabric+headband/

Umbrella: Target http://www.target.com/p/totes-clear-bubble-umbrella-silver-trim/-/A-10780081#prodSlot=medium_1_6&term=clear+umbrella

Blouse: Cotton On I bought mine on clearance so I couldn’t find the link to the exact one I am wearing so you can check your local Cotton On’s sales rack or buy this similar blouse http://shop.cottonon.com/shop/product/katja-s/l-shirt-white/

Midi rings: Forever 21 http://www.forever21.com/Product/Product.aspx?Br=F21&Category=ACC&ProductID=1040665778&VariantID=

Swing skirt: Cotton On http://us.cottonon.com/shop/product/jeanie-flippy-skirt-black/ They’re currently having a sale on these and you can get 2 for $20! This is one of my favorite cuts for a skirt, they’re slightly longer in the back which is great for modesty’s sake and the have shape that gives a nod to the 50’s which I adore. I could honestly buy one in every color!

Boots: Atwoods. Now Atwoods is a country supply store so they don’t have a website to order from, so you can either see if one is near you, or buy some similar ones from Sheplers http://www.sheplers.com/Old-West-Jama-Basic-Western-Cowgirl-Boots-Medium-Toe/21879.pro?parentCategoryId=448&categoryId=459&subCategoryId=460 these are one sale for $54.99 which is practically unheard of when talking about cowboy boots. I’ve seen some boots that cost more than an actual horse! So these are quite the bargain 😉

I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you have a happy Friday!
