Gracious Gold with Retro Resins

For as long as I can remember, my go to accessories were brooches. I wore brooches and flowers. That was pretty much it. I felt intimidated by adding more accessories as a baby pinup and it was only as my confidence within pinup grew, that I slowly started adding necklaces and most recently: earrings. Earrings… Continue reading Gracious Gold with Retro Resins

The perfect Repro Vintage Bag from Lola Von Rose

While I don't get photographed with them often, I'm a long time lover of handbags. My current favorite two were actually my grandmothers before she passed and while I adore the look of lucite style true vintage bags, the price bracket of such items normally puts them in the unobtainable list for me. I simply… Continue reading The perfect Repro Vintage Bag from Lola Von Rose

French Fancy in Doll Deluxe

I rarely plan outfits in advance. Its normally a decision made while I'm styling my hair first thing in the morning and seeing how it turns out. But occasionally, I see an item that really catches my attention and it causes a chain reaction of my brain to start piecing together a complete look from… Continue reading French Fancy in Doll Deluxe

1940’s suit glamour with Jack’s Daughter

As my love of the 1940’s has continued to flourish, one thing that has continually caught my eye is the suits. There is something just so amazingly fabulous about a 1940’s suit. It’s a power suit. Strong yet with how they were worn incredibly feminie. I bought my first suit, an amazing red one which… Continue reading 1940’s suit glamour with Jack’s Daughter

Winter hues of blue ~ The Magic Thread Cardigans

Its funny how things we once laughed at the idea of wearing can become such a wardrobes staple. For example I detested cardigans in my late teens/early twenties. I thought they were for grandmas (back when I thought looking like a grandma was a bad thing lol) and I avoided them as if they had some… Continue reading Winter hues of blue ~ The Magic Thread Cardigans

Cameo magic with Tika’s Treasure

Wearing Mermaid Cameo brooch in Silver and Silver Cameo Earrings in orange pearl Goth was my first love. In my teens I dreamed of being a Victorian gothic princess, complete with a bustle and a parasol. As a teen, the clothes I had access to meant this never eventuated and I ended up throwing myself… Continue reading Cameo magic with Tika’s Treasure

Get your Goth on with Jubly Umph’s Villains We Love Collection!

Wearing the Jubly Umph Wednesday Addams Brooch While I am very much a pinup at heart, gothic garb was actually my first love when it came to a fashion style outside of what the mainstream had to offer. In my mid to late teens, before I really took to pinup and still saw it as… Continue reading Get your Goth on with Jubly Umph’s Villains We Love Collection!

Mischief Made from El Rodeo: the Australian one stop tee shop!

  Its funny how when you get into a certain style, you shy away from things you used to wear a lot. For example, I used to LIVE in tee shirts....then I got into pinup and I stopped wearing them (outside of my men's star wars tees I wear when I'm crafting). But, with the… Continue reading Mischief Made from El Rodeo: the Australian one stop tee shop!
