Vintage Inspired Swimwear Under $55.00 for all Sizes!

Ladies! It’s that time of year again! Time to hit the pool, the beach or your own backyard in your best one or two-piece swimsuit! Why not kick off the summer season in style with a new vintage-inspired little number?

I don’t know about you guys, but I hate to spend a lot of money on bathing suits. Most people only wear them a few times a year and the rest of the time they sit in a drawer longing for the ocean waves.

For that reason, I try to purchase my swimwear for as little as possible while still looking stylish. While I would rather wear a legitimately vintage suit, they are hard to come by in good wearable condition and if they are they are often quite pricey. The sizing can be tricky as well for fitting today’s modern woman.

Luckily, there are so many affordable options out there for all you pinups on a budget. I did the legwork for you with my trusty bargain hunting skills and selected 12 of my favorite picks for $55.00 and under!

From juniors to plus-size to maternity, I got you covered! Check them out below and I’ll catch you poolside (Don’t forget to bring the sunscreen 😉  Continue reading

Drugstore Delight of the Month: Jordana Easy Liner for Lips

This month’s post is a wee bit late (As it is almost the end of the month, lol) but its a good one!

As a retro pin up with vintage style, one of the key looks in your make-up arsenal is a bold red lip! Being an old-school kinda gal, a coordinating lip liner is essential for me in getting my lips just right. I know many women shy away from lip liner, but it is a huge component in making your lipstick stay in place and last all day. Just as a belt can define your waist, a liner can add definition to your unique lip shape! Continue reading

Hey Sailor Launch Party @ M.A.C. Store in SOHO!

Last night I was invited to the M.A.C. store to celebrate the launch of their latest collection entitled Hey Sailor! I was so excited about this line as it was inspired by the classic American pin-up girls of the 1940’s.

The place was jam-packed with gorgeous gals and dapper boys all decked out in custom sailor hats and nautical attire while the DJ was spinning out The Andrew Sisters, Benny Goodman and other swingtastic tunes. My favorite part of this event was the stunning woman they had tap dancing in the store window. She was dressed in a retro striped two-piece with her patent leather tap shoes and she looked amazing. People were practically pressed up against the glass to snap a photo of this girl!

While I did do my eye makeup before arriving, I made sure to leave my lips bare so I could try on all of the new lip-colours one by one! I have so say that M.A.C. lipstick is one of the best on the market. Not only do they smell like Haagen Dazs vanilla ice cream but their colours are vivid and long-lasting. My favorite shade of the night? Red Racer, although Sail La Vie was a close second. What can I say, I love a red lip!

I ended up running into some old friends and made some new ones while oohing and ahhing over the makeup. Nothing like a little retro glamour to bring fashionable people together! I had a swell time!

XOXO
