Yes! Week 3 and I still haven’t dropped the ball on blogging! Haha I have to admit though I almost didn’t make it, I didn’t know what I was gonna post about, but hallelujah my parcel from Apostolic Clothing showed up just in time for me to crank out a shoot and a review.
Apostolic Clothing was founded on the principle of providing fun and fashionable modest pieces. In a world or extremes it can often be hard to find clothing that is modest without it looking like a gunny sack as well as finding clothes that are on trend but still leave a little to the imagination. So coming across AC is like breathing in a breath of fresh air. You can read more about the beliefs and principles of the company here.
Now onto the fun bit! PICTURES!
Skirt: Apostolic Clothing Can we just take a minute to appreciate how fun the print of this skirt is? I absolutely adore the pattern just the right amount of quirky and feminine. The cotton/poly blended material itself feels very sturdy no flimsy tissue paper skirt here, and the size chart is very accurate, I’d suggest though if you do fall between sizes to size up. My waist measures 27.5 inches and the medium is precisely for that measurement, so there’s not really any wiggle room there, so just keep that in mind whilst ordering. All in all I am incredibly happy with my new skirt and I have a feeling I will be getting a lot of wear out of this fun little number.
Shoes: Restricted Footwear
I hope you all enjoyed this post, that you check out Apostolic Clothing, and that you keep an eye out for Pt 2 of this feature. Til then happy Friday my lovelies.
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!
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 I will be featuring Heart of Haute, an incredible clothing company who makes their pinup inspired pieces with “Love and No Regrets” meaning you can feel good about your purchases. No sweatshop labor and it’s all made in the USA! How stellar is that? This San Dimas California based company specializes in 50’s and 60’s style clothing, from tops to skirts and wiggle to swing dresses they have it all, and in a myriad of beautiful prints I might add 😉
Adorable with or without a cardigan…but 33 degrees without any extra covering is bit too intense for this southerner. trying desperately to stay warm.
Quick dress twirl then a dash inside to escape the cold.
Cardigan: Old Navy bought it years ago but they still have similar ones available.
Dress: Heart of Haute This dress is positively beautiful, I am so infatuated with the neckline! I love that just hanging on to the shoulder’s look, and because of the adjustable elastic sleeves it can be worn a little more off the shoulder if you’re looking to be extra daring 😉 The cut of this dress is phenomenal, it accentuates everything you want it to, yet hides what is typically not our best asset, if you want to make that previous statement into a pun feel free haha. Not only is this dress 100% cotton which I love, but its a sturdy cotton. Don’t you hate when your clothes are thin as crepe paper? This dress is built to last, quality construction, sturdy fabric, and a silhouette that will NEVER go out of style. I received a size small and because of the elastic in the arms it fits beautifully. My measurements are 36″ 27 1/2″ 36″ so I should technically be a medium but the small fits me just fine. However keep in mind if the dress you choose has “restricted” construction (no stretch) I’d go with what the size chart says just to be safe. I am absolutely thrilled with this dress and will be wearing it often.
Shoes: DSW I know you’re probably tired of seeing these shoes but what can I say? They are my go to pinup shoes, not too high of heel, all weather wearability, and a lovely shade of red.
I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you check out Heart of Haute . Happy Friday I love you guys!
