50’s Diner Date-Part II

I love the vintage flair that’s in trend right now. I’ve always been partial to this style, but never fully incorporated it into my daily look. Perhaps it’s due to wearing scrubs roughly 90% of my waking hours, but in any event, I decided that this season I’m going to start. And to help motivate me to break out of my normal routine, I designed some fashion sets, starting with the 50s era. I’m using old Diner Menus as the backgrounds and I really love how they are turning out. Last week, I illustrated a set that took place in a “Vixen-ish” Diner. So to change things up, my second set or scene, for this matter, regards a first date. It’s almost becoming a mini story where one of the girls from the first set meets her “prince charming” and in my second set, she is on this date. However, this is no ordinary first-date. Of course not…..who wants to see that. Look closely at the menu and decide for yourself what is going on. Enjoy!

Below, you will see the newest set first, followed by the “Vixen-ish Diner.” If you want more ideas on Vintage style and flair, you can follow me here.

Different Approach to the Tulle Skirt

When I paint or practice my art, for the matter, I tend to lean towards an unconventional style. It’s my release into worlds that I don’t  approach in my daily life. It’s an amazing avenue to fantasize a different world without judgement or shame. I made these three sets on areas that I consider alternative, in that, they break the aesthetical conception of what was determined correct at their time. Each one confronts a design conception of the previous one and I used a tulle skirt as a connector to play with the same “object” in the three moments. Enjoy!
