Retro Red || Secrets in Lace Gingham Bullet Bra



Who doesn't love gingham everything this time of year??  Secrets in Lace brilliantly made all my retro dreams come true, with a bullet bra range in this classic print.  In my new boudoir, I enjoyed elegantly primping while feeling like a springtime pinup doll, thanks to this cotton true vintage recreation.  To accompany, I added feminine accents of ruffles and lace, including the SIL thigh high stocking... such a brilliant alternative to garter belts on days you'd like to lounge with a little more ease... and equally glamorous!

Keira & Cobblestones || Heart My Closet in Soho




The entire span of Soho is a 'Cast Iron Historic District,' a national landmark, and a neighborhood with beginnings that dates back to 1600!  It is literally so apparent that this area protected by the National Register, as yesteryear speaks from nearly every building in sight.  It's truly a vision for history lovers, and equally popular for modern day artists and fashionable folk.

 Matching this antique aesthetic, is a crisp, sophisticated, true-to-vintage design from Heart my Closet.  Let me just state that my heart nearly stopped when slipping into this frock... it's a perfect design that really comes to life when wearing.  Made of a soft yet structured fabric, each fold, curve and pleat drapes in the most exquisite way.  This piece is now a staple I couldn't live without, and equally perfect for fall and winter as she is for Spring.  Styling and color combinations are endless.

Manhattan & Marilyns || Marilyn Eyewear & Skyline



In a hazy evening sun, gazing upon the skyline of Manhattan, thoughts of yesteryear inevitably filled my mind.  In my Marilyn sunglasses from Marilyn Eyewear, I couldn't help but think of the years that Marilyn lived right here in Manhattan, along with so many silver screen & technicolor icons of the past.  There's a special feeling here like no other place.

Here as I admire the view, we realized the skyline reflection in my cat-eyes gave me Manhattan-made eyelashes!  Last month I introduced you to the Marilyns in "silver screen" and today I'm feeling demure in noir.  This style may be my favorite, but there are so many other gorgeous styles to choose from as well... and all for the glamour girl!
