Hooray time for Pt 2 of my Queen of Heartz feature! Let me start off by saying I’m a fairly modest person and I don’t particularly enjoy putting it all out there, so the idea of doing a swimsuit shoot was a little intimidating. But let me tell you this, no swimsuit has ever given me the confidence to “rock what I got” quite like this one. I think the main reason this swimsuit made me feel like such a bombshell was yes its beautiful and the print is just straight up sexy, but it balances that sex appeal out with a cut that is not only modest but its also incredibly flattering.
Who knew an empty pool made such a great backdrop?Pretending I’m an actual pinup 😉
You guys! There was another bee!!! Apparently bumble bees love Queen of Heartz as much as I do 😉
Head piece: Gift from my dear friend Amy who sells other gorgeous headpieces on her etsy site
Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters they sold out of the exact pair I’m wearing but they have other brilliant options
Robe: Gift but you can find a similar robe at JCPenneys or Victoria’s Secret
Swimsuit: Queen of Heartz I’ve never been a huge fan of one pieces which is funny for a “modest” person to say, but I always felt like they were more revealing in structure, and not at all flattering, most resulted in a ham in a tube sock like appearance. But this suit could not be more opposite of that, I love how the structure of this suit keeps you supported without being as brutal as spanx, the little buttons on the bust add a beautiful polished appearance, and the adjustable halterneck ensures your comfort regardless of size. Speaking of size Queen of Heartz size chart is always on point, my measurements are 36″ 27.5″ 36″ and the suit in medium is a perfect fit. I know I say it all the time but its Letty’s keen eye that truly sets her pieces apart, if you purchase anything from her you can rest assured the fit will be beautiful, the tiny details will give your outfit that polished edge, and the quality of construction will be like nothing you’ve ever experienced before. I cannot sing the praises of Queen of Heartz enough!
Shoes: DSW again not the exact pair I’m wearing but I actually like this alternative better
I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you check Queen of Heartz out. Happy Friday my love!
Hooray it’s Friday and boy do I have a great feature for you all, this week I am featuring Corset Story.
Corset Story is an online store, that works along side of thousands of international retailers, making them the largest distributers of corsets worldwide. Now before you wrinkle your nose at a “big business” I must let you know when I had questions about sizing I had someone helping me every step of the way with the kind of personal attention you would get from a boutique, but will all of the expertise of a large corporation. Not only is Corset Story an authority on the construction of their garments but they also have an extensive variety of styles, which means whether you prefer the rockabilly look (like I do) or are one of the few people cool enough to pull off the steampunk look (I applaud you) I can guarantee you will find something you want.
Its all about the details
Earrings: Stole em from my mom but you can get a similar pair from claires
Corset: Corset Story Can I just say how much I love this beauty? The ruffle edging, the incredible constructions (You can really cinch that waist in let me tell ya), the ability to wear it dressed up or down, and my all time favorite print makes this the perfect corset in my eyes. My measurements are 36″ 27 1/2″ 36″ and with the expert advice I received I ended up getting a size 24 which fits beautifully thanks to the lace up back. If you have any size questions the team at Corset Story are more than happy to help, but I’d say their size charts are pretty accurate so you may not even need help 😉
I really hope you all enjoyed this post and that you check Corset Story out! Happy Friday my loves!
This week’s Fashion Friday is featuring JBR Clothing, a company that carries all of your favorite pinup and vintage inspired brands, and also happens to have some of the best costumer service you will ever have the fortune to experience. When I was unsure about sizing for this particular dress I shot the JBR team an email, was helped immediately and because of their expert advice my dress fits me perfectly!
Check out this fantastic company here http://www.jbrclothing.com/default.asp
Dress: JBR Clothing Have you ever seen an article of clothing that was your personality made into a garment? Well this H & R London Polka dot dress was so me I knew we deserved each other 😉 With its black and white polka dot print, classic swing dress shape, tulle underskirt, and fantastic pleated collar this dress is the embodiment of pinup. Not only was this dress visually “me” but the fit is spectacular. The H&R London dresses have a tendency to run on the small side but they provide a size chart that is positively spot on, so need to worry about the dreaded size gambling game. My measurement are 36″ 27 1/2″ 36″ and the medium is a gorgeous fit.
High Heels: DSW yes yes I wear these shoes too much, but am I sorry? Absolutely not.
I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you have a very Happy Valentines! PS if you’re looking for a last minute gift you couldn’t go wrong with a gift certificate from JBR Clothing or you could even buy yourself your own Valentines gift. No need to wait around to get what you really want. Love you guys!
This week’s Fashion Friday will be featuring Unique Vintage. Unique Vintage is the creation of Katie Echeverry. Katie started out simply with an online shop of vintage finds and vintage reproductions. Well naturally interest built and it practically became a necessity for Mrs Echeverry to go full time and open a boutique. Her boutique is based out of Burbank California, and I long for the day I can actually visit it in person, until then I am constantly perusing the website http://www.unique-vintage.com/ They have everything thing from clothes to shower curtains, items inspired by the 1920’s to the 1990’s. There is something for everyone. You could close your eyes and point and end up picking out the perfect gift for me *hint hint* 😉
Yes glorious pockets!
Dress: Dallas Pinup and you can purchase it from Unique Vintage. This dress makes me feel like a million bucks! The moment I tried it on I knew I had to have it. The construction of this dress is phenomenal, it is made out of 100% cotton, and hugs my frame like a custom dress, that size chart is spot on. The color scheme is brilliant, I mean who doesn’t love a nautical motif? Plus it has pockets! This dress might as well come with a Hallelujah chorus because clearly it is heaven sent! http://www.unique-vintage.com/unique-vintage-ship-shape-navy-with-stripe-trim-wiggle-dress-p-10605.html
