Well Happy Halloween everyone. Today’s post is not the least bit scary or spooky unless you happen to get the creeps from fabulous dresses at fabulous prices haha.
This week I am featuring the lovely company Lady V London. Lady V is run by husband and wife team Sergio and Victoria whose commitment to their customers, community, and workers is outstanding. From the very start of their company Victoria and Sergio were determined to create beautiful vintage inspired pieces at affordable prices, this means all the products are designed in house, and up until 2013 all of their dresses were made in EU. As of June 2013 Lady V moved their production to London ensuring excellent working conditions, higher standards of construction, and a quicker turn around time producing new designs and stocking old favorites. Beautiful clothes that you can feel good about wearing? It doesn’t get better than that! This shoot was 90% giggles.Gotta do the twirl test, the Isabella passed with flying colors.Earrings: Sam Moon/Similar

Dress: Lady V London To me this dress is a prime example of why the pinup style is so fun and more practical than you might imagine. The versatility of this dress has got to be one of my favorite features. The bow detailing can be removed in order to change the feel of the dress. Plus the timeless design can easily transition from a casual day out by pairing it with a cardigan, ballet flats, and fun 50’s style pony tail, to an elegant night on the town by ditching the cardigan adding some heels, an updo, and some glitzy jewelry. Also in case you’re wondering the fit of this dress is superb, my measurements are 36″ 27.5″ 36″ so I went with a US size 6 (UK size 10) the dress has ample room for the simple things like moving and breathing 😉 but it doesn’t look the least bit sloppy, oh and my favorite part, it actually has sleeves that can handle my shoulders! Lady V London thank you for making such wonderful dresses ❤

I hope you all enjoyed this post, that you have a very happy Halloween, and that you check out Lady V London.
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.
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!
