Girl About Town: The Lovely Ashley

I first met Ashley at the MAC Hey Sailor event back in the spring when I was instantly drawn to her awesome retro updo. As fate would have it, I had the pleasure of running into her again at the 41st Annual East Village Block Fair a couple of weeks ago. It was funny because I didn’t even recognize her as the last time I saw her she was a redhead with glasses! Ashley is truly a little pinup chameleon and I just adored this darker rockabilly look.

Drugstore Delight of the Month: Wet N Wild’s Mega Last Matte Lipstick #967 Dollhouse Pink

Hey Dolls, I know it’s been a while since I posted a DDOTM feature ( I think I skipped a month!) so I will try to make this one as swell as possible 😉

I recently discovered a new shade of Wet n Wild’s Mega Last lipstick that really took me by surprise. While I have been a fan of this product for some time and have recommended it to y’all in previous postings ( i.e. Orange Pinup Lipstick), this colour is seriously impressive. For a cheapie lipstick, the colour intensity rivaled that of a high-end product. The consistency was wonderfully opaque and shockingly full-bodied and bold.  And the shade itself? This is a pink that one would encounter in Barbie’s dreamhouse! It’s the quintessential girly girl shade of bright pink. It’s very clear with blue undertones.  Continue reading

Snood, Glorious Snood!

Snoods are truly a wonderful little slice of vintage heaven! While they were most popular during the 1940’s circa WWII, these gems have been around for ages, (no seriously, since like the middle ages!). What exactly is a snood? It is defined as an ornamental hairnet or fabric bag worn over the hair at the back of a woman’s head. They come in a variety of colours and materials and can be used both casually and for more formal occasions. I have had a love affair with the snood for many years now and whenever I see one in a colour I don’t have, I snatch it up and add it to my collection! They are a lovely, affordable way to add vintage flourish to any look!  Continue reading

Girl About Town: The Lovely Temi

While shopping around downtown today I met Temi, a 19 year-old Jersey Girl by way of Nigeria. Her look literally stopped me in my tracks! She was so breathtakingly beautiful I couldn’t help but notice her. I just loved her whole ensemble, from her floral tapestry handbag to her perfectly applied scarlet lipstick. It was a wonderful transitional look that can easily go from late summer to early fall. While everything she was wearing was new, (from Forever 21!!!), her style was definitely vintage inspired. How fabulous! Continue reading

L’Ensemble Du Jour: Black & White Delight

For my Labor Day attire, I decided to wear this darling 1960’s maxi dress as the weather had finally cooled down a bit. I just love the print on this one, it reminds me of a mod patchwork quilt! The ruffled side slit adds just a touch of whimsy. Continue reading

Drugstore Delight of The Month: Maybelline Eye Studio Color Explosion Luminizing Eye Shadow

While digging around in my closet this morning, I found one of my beloved childhood mementos…my “Munsters Brew” tee shirt! This shirt used to belong to my mom circa 1988 and I adopted it at some point when I was in high school. The Munsters was such an awesome show and I used to love watching the re-runs on TV when I was a kid. Lilly Munster, played by screen siren Yvonne De Carlo, was my favorite character. Her makeup was pretty awesome and today I decided to accent my tee with a Munster inspired makeup look!  Continue reading
