I find myself constantly looking towards the past for ideas and inspiration on everything and this week was no exception. I have been obsessing over this stunning photo of Jane Russell and decided to write a little beauty post about her look. Continue reading

Girl About Town: The Lovely Aurora

I have been wanting to do a regular post about women on the streets of NYC for a while now. Every time I saw an outfit or a hairstyle that I wanted to photograph, I didn’t have my camera with me! Luckily, earlier this week I spotted the lovely Aurora while shopping on Clinton Street and I just happened to have my Nikon handy!  Continue reading

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

L’Ensemble Du Jour: Betsey in Black

Last week I was looking through my closet and found this little black Betsey  Johnson dress. I bought it at a thrift shop a few weeks back and decided that today was the day to bring her out into the world. Sometimes, you’ll have a fancy dress laying around collecting dust for years waiting for the proper occasion to be debuted. In true Betsey fashion, I decided to wear this dress and hat just because! Some days you just want to feel pretty, and what better way to get there than by wearing a full skirted lace dress with an elegant feathered hat!  I met a lot of wonderful people that day while walking around the city, but had I opted to wear something less extravagant, I may not have had the opportunity.
