MY BRAND NEW ART PINS/BUTTONS

I POSTED THIS FIRST THING ON MY ART SITE: WWW.CARLIEMICHELLESORATARTWORLD.COM BUT WANTED TO POST HERE AS WELL BECAUSE I’M SO EXCITED AND PROUD OF THIS!!!!! YOU CAN NOW WEAR MY ART WORK AS FASHION AGAIN!!!

Thank you to Big Cartel and Metal Works for creating these personalized pins of my art work. We collaborated on what I wanted engraved and the materials I wanted for them and we came up with an amazing product. To start with, two art pieces of mine were chosen. The first one is titled, “LUST” and the second pin you can get is titled, “Rare Oddity.” Both styles are made with strong, sturdy, and beautiful enamel which give a nice gloss to them without being over powering so you can see the art work perfectly without a glare.

I’ve always been a huge advocate in artists supporting other artists and I hope everyone enjoys this customized pins! Leave a comment below or hit me up on any of my social media pages to place an order!

Bettie Page Collaboration with Peggy Stone, Part 1

I met Peggy Stone earlier this year. Actually I think I met her at the end of last year and we immediately hit it off. First reason was we are both published pinup models and actually have a spread in Passion Pinup’s Magazine right next to each other which was definitely kismet. The other most important thing Peggy and I have in common is that Bettie Page is both our Pinup Vintage Icon! I wish I still had my picture from high school where I was dressed like Bettie for Halloween.

It’s amazing how much Peggy and I have in common, such as her man takes a lot of her model shots like my husband does for me sometimes. I’ve even given and sold her some of my Bettie memorabilia like the matching flasks which you’ll see in part 2. We are definitely Pinup sisters.

Peggy and I text almost everyday and I love our friendship. She says I’m her big sis, even though she’s not that much younger than me, haha, and she’s my baby pinup sis. I hope she comes to California soon.

For this collaboration, we decided to do a Bettie Page double shoot. Duh! Haha! Bettie Page was such a natural beauty. She didn’t just do lingerie and fetish shoots but also more “Cheesecake Pinup” shots which I show here in my cherry looks. 🍒 For my hair, I did a beautiful wet set waves and since my Bettie bangs are grown out, I found my clip on Bettie Bangs.

Bettie was such a natural beauty. She didn’t fuss with a lot of eyeliner or heavy makeup. She just wore powder, mascara, and of course red lip stick, which I recreated in my photo sets. Here are a few of my cherry cheesecake photos but stay tuned for part 2 of this to see more sexy photos of my baby sis Peggy and me! Make sure to watch out for our matching flasks!

Good morning everyone, today’s outfit is HEAD TO TOE SKINNYGIRL! You all know that I love Bethenny Frankel. I love all the times I met her, I love her skinny girl margarita, and especially her clothes. Her jeans are amazing and they are so flattering and soft that you don’t feel like you’re wearing jeans. Also the red and black stripe sweater is perfect for cool days and has a cute slit on each arm which is a detail I always love. Definitely check out her site, skinnygirl.com to see EVERYTHING Bethenny has to offer.

CoCo Chanel

IMG_9519

Her name was Gabrielle, her nickname was Mademoiselle but she will always be known as CoCo. By transforming practically into an aesthetic, she set women free and invented a style that both utterly personal and universally recognized.

Elegance means being beautiful both on the inside and outside.

Mademoiselle Chanel was first inspired to create a shoulder bag, thus freeing women’s hands and radically changing their allure. (That idea works perfect on me with my hand bag collection.)

 Like I said above, I love handbags, not just Chanel but many brands and styles. You’ve seen my purse collection.

With it’s quilted effect which was inspired by stable boy jackets, ely lids through the bag so the chain strap can pass and move., golden turn lock closer, the logo, double CC, top-stitched  in to the lining, and perfect proportions, the CHANEL BAG WAS DESTINED TO BECOME A LEGEND.

I thought this was so amazing Coco’s inspiration for creating her very first Chanel bag. I’ve always grown up and loved fashion no matter what style or fashion I was wearing and I always admired the fashion.

 Also besides my Chanel bags, I have other Coco Chanel art work that I treasure.

The first piece I want to show is my Vinyl Black Lips Surfer Girl. Black shiny lips and Kate Moss’s lips.

I also have original early sketches and art work done by CoCo and Chanel.

Hope you enjoy and definitely research into her, her fashion life, and her real life.
