I don’t do these often but when I do, I like to show everything and do them in a fun way so sometimes you’ll see ootd photos or videos like today. I wanted to do this video to show my spooky sexy outfit for getting my first batch of 2019 Halloween decorations at Michael’s, my home away from home. Here’s my video of my Outfit of the Day.
Bettie Page Collaboration with Peggy Stone, Part 2
Here it is finally, my double BETTIE PAGE COLLABORATION WITH MY PINUP SISTER PEGGY STONE! I’m so glad we got to do these shoots as our first collab together. I know her and I will be doing more soon. We definitely both have the classic Bettie Page essence and aura within us. I love how even though we have different hair colors and different outfits in our photos, they all go together beautifully.
Her photos were taken by Richard Kitchen whose Instagram handle is @rwk_photography. Mine were taken by Nima/Nick Sorat whose Twitter handle is @inqtanq and Nima Sorat on Facebook. Enjoy our double beautiful and fabulous photoshoot.
Thank you Peggy for doing this with me and I simply adore you sis. xoxo
Weekend Fashion and Style
I went to go see the movie, “The Nun” yesterday, which by the way was good and very scary, and my husband and I both loved what I wore yesterday on our movie date and took some photos of my look. I was in a very artsy and bohemian mood, and enjoyed wearing my sexy leather shorts with a simple black tank top and my velvet floral kimono shawl. I paired it with my cute floppy hat and tortoise shell sunglasses. I finished my look off with my Valentino black and gold studded heels, my quilted classic Chanel Purse, some cute bangles, my gold pearl drop earrings from my friend Kirsty and my Edgar Allan Poe necklace made by my other friend Luna.
I love the mix of the color and black and white photos my man took and I felt like I was sitting in one of my favorite cafes in San Francisco. I really enjoyed this fun outfit of mine as well as my really fun day.

10 Looks For Summer: Outfit Ten: “Party Dress Time!”
Here is my last outfit to celebrate summer. I chose to show off one of my vintage party dresses to celebrate the end of summer and the beginning of my favorite season, Autumn. I love the bird pattern and decided to wear a crinoline with this dress. Crinolines are petticoats that you wear underneath to give your dresses more volume and add an extra layer of color to your outfit. I chose a red crinoline for this pretty vintage look. As for my hair, I believe you can never wear enough flowers in your hair. Even if you’re wearing a casual outfit, layering flowers in your hair can make your look more fun and polished. To finish off my vintage party dress, I donned my heart-shaped sunglasses and my super high Wizard of Oz inspired sparkly ruby red heels
I really enjoyed posting my ten inspiring looks of summer but now that summer is almost over, I’m absolutely ecstatic about Autumn, MY FAVORITE TIME OF THE YEAR, and for everything that goes along with it.
10 Looks For Summer: Outfit Nine: “Universal Monster Look”
I love mixing my pinup/rockabilly style with my horror inspired pieces. Since it’s almost Autumn, I wanted my last two summer outfits to look like that they can work during the summer as well as in the fall when it starts to look cooler. For this outfit, you can definitely still rock it in cold weather, you just need to layer a jacket or sweater over it. This outfit is very versatile.
I know this universal monster print can be found anywhere now BUT I was one of the VERY FIRST BUYERS for this material about fifteen years ago and got it from the first company that used this print so I feel extra special. I loved pairing it with my black crop top decorated with my brand new HOCUS POCUS pendant from my girl, LunaMoon. I’ve known here a long time now and love her!
For the finishing touches, I wore this outfit in my cute Bettie Page heels and my fabulous unique strawberry flower hair clip. Hope you like this look and can inspire you in some of your looks and like I said before, this outfit can still be worn during cooler weather, just find a fabulous and/or sexy coat to keep your beauty toasty warm.
Hope you like this fashion article and photos and be sure to stay tuned for the very last summer outfit! And make sure you subscribe and follow my site if you haven’t already.
Lots of love! xoxo
10 Looks For Summer: Outfit Eight: “Vintage Rock and Roll Music Tops”
Ok you all know that I LOVE MUSIC, especially Rock and Roll and collect concert tees, vintage concert tees from my favorite bands, and even new modern music tees that you can just buy in regular stores. If you’ve been following my site here for a while, you might remember a DIY post I wrote a few years ago titled, “Getting Creative with Concert T-Shirts,” where I show you had to transform your concert tees into different rent looks by cutting them, tying them, taking extra large shirts and turning them into dresses, and more. Here’s the link below in case you haven’t seen it.
In this summer inspired look, I took one of my music shirts and instead of pairing it with a pair of jeans or shorts, I dressed it up a bit to show that you can dress up and casual top, especially if it’s a rock and roll/music top. Here I show my favorite Beatles top and paired it with a classic blazer since the weather is starting to finally get a little cooler, slowly but I’ll take it. I paired my cool “The Beatles” top, which is my all time favorite band by the way, with my silver silk pants. I love these pants because you can wear them long or pull them up a little bit so they have a more Capri silhouette In these photos I pulled them up to show of my gold spiked ankle boots with my seven inch gold heels. I love these and who says you can’t pair gold and silver together? I topped my look with my black sequined scarf around my neck that my husband bought me on our very first vacation we took together to New York after dating a year.
Hope you enjoy my eighth summer inspired look. Only two more to go. Thank you everyone and have a great day.
10 Looks for Summer: Outfit Four “All Eyes on You.”
Today it was 104 degrees were I was today. I was in the San Fernando Valley to have a doctor’s appointment with my mom as well as my mom which was nice since we got together.
I knew it was going to scorching hot today so I donned my spaghetti strap “Batty Eye” dress from Sourpuss Clothing. I wore my studded stilettos again and wore my crystals in my right hand with with iridescent beetle earrings, emeral jewelry. I also rocked my pink and green jeweled cat eyed sunglasses again and I still love them. The finishing touch were my “Victory Roll Swirl hairdo with my lily spider flower clip.
This outfit was perfect for this horrible heat today as well as a cute dinner outfit at my favorite Italian restaurant, “Buen Gusto.” I went with my mom who is my bff besides my husband. Winks, and we had a very nice time. It was fun taking pictures in there and having some Procesco to go with the sign above when I’m sitting down.
10 Looks for Summer: Number Three, Girlie Girl in Jeans and a Tank Top
A tank top and jeans is always a cute go to, especially during the summer time but I like to add a little extra flare to this look. I rolled and cuffed up my jeans like any good rockabilly gal and wanted to be pretty in pink in my cute barbie pink heart Trixie Mattel tank top. If your tank is a little big, pair it with a pretty lacy bra or thin camisole (that will still keep you cool) to give a little sexy but tasteful edge. It also dresses up the outfit a bit more as well do some big high heels or stilettos. I sported my new pair of HUGE flamingo pink and green- jeweled cat-eyed sunglasses. I love them and they are so fun as well as protect my peepers from the sun.
To give your look more glamour, wear some beautiful jewelry with it. Here I wore a beautiful shell heart bracelet to go with my hearts on my top and my finishing touch were some beautiful pearl drop, vintage-inspired chandelier earrings that I just got as a gift from my girl Kirsty Giuliani that she made. Thank you girlie, I am I love with them!
“Victorian Private Show Lady” Photo Shoot Part 2
For part 2 of this shoot, my inspiration was still the “Victorian Lady” theme obviously but I wanted to dress and pose how a burlesque dancer from the early 1900’s would’ve dressed. I definitely did my research on this considering burlesque is a major passion of mine but I also took inspiration from one of my favorite television shows, “Murdoch Mysteries,” which is a brilliant Canadian show that I recommend to everyone.
I love the second hat fascinator from Debra Shirley and it worked perfectly with my Victorian corset, my fishnets that I stoned myself, and my other accessories. I wanted to do both outside and inside shots since this is a little bit more of a “PEEK A BOO” shoot but still “CLASSY AS ALWAYS!” That’s a true burlesque performer.
Hope you enjoy my second photoshoot images. All makeup and hair done by myself and this my very own costume. Photos taken by the best, Nick Sorat!
Victorian Lady Photo Shoot Part 1
I finally finally finally did my Victorian Lady Photoshoot. I was so excited to not only do this shoot but also I got to finally wear my handmade hat fascinators made by my friend Debra Shirley. I first mentioned Debra in a past post on how I was excited to receive her hats and you can click on her tag to see the past article. She’ll be writing a bio for my interview I’m doing with her soon.
I did two parts for this amazing shoot because I had two different costumes and looks. Also I had different inspirations for each look. Here is my first photoset look and my inspiration.
My FIRST inspiration for this shoot was my mom. My parents bought a new house not too long ago and my mom is an amazing interior decorator, even though she was never professionally trained. She just has a beautiful and amazing eye! Her theme of the new house is Victorian. She actually suggested me doing a Victorian-themed shoot because I’ve never done one before. My other inspiration, especially fashion wise, for PART ONE of this shoot was two of my favorite films, “MY FAIR LADY” and “MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS.”
I hope you enjoy these photos from PART 1 of my “VICTORIAN LADY” photoshoot. A huge thank you to Debra Shirley again for creating me these beautiful hat fascinators.
