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.

Rodeo Wear and How to Stand Out

,

rodeoone, two, three, four

If you live in Houston, then you know that throughout the month of March it’s RODEO SEASON. For some, this can be a simple event of debauchery and there’s nothing wrong with that. However, looking good should also be in the back of one’s mind. For me, I love to kick off the high heels and grab the cowboy boots. (I actually don’t own a pair, so this might be a little exaggeration). Anyway, realizing what exactly to wear shouldn’t be too hard of a task. This year, Aztec print dresses paired with boots can create a cowgirl ensemble. Below I created a collage from some of my favorite shops to create this look. The far left is from wheretoget.it and they also carry collections from every era. The rest are from one of my newest and favorite stores called Hazel and Olive. There prices are incredibly reasonable and there designs are fresh. You can visit them at hazelandolive.com.

Enjoy!!!


Si viven en Houston, seguramente saben que dentro del mes de Marzo estamos en la ÉPOCA de RODEO. Para algunos, este puede ser sólo un evento ddivertido, y no hay nada  malo en ello. Sin embargo, del mismo modo, vernos bien debería estar presente en algún rinconcito de nuestras mentes. En mi caso, adoro la posibilidad de tirar a un lado los tacos altos y usar un buen par de botas cowboy (aunque en este momento no tengo unas de esas, por lo que esto podría ser un poquito exagerado, jeje). En cualquier caso, definir exactamente qué es lo que deberíamos usar puede ser una tarea realmente ardua. Este año, los diseños y estilos Aztecas combinados con botas pueden crear ese tan deseado look de cowgirl. Debajo cree un collage con accesorios de lasgunas de mis tiendas favoritas para crear este look.  El de la izquierda es de wheretoget.it ellos traen colecciones de varias épocas y estilos. El resto son de una de mis nuevas tiendas favoritas, llamada Hazel and Olive. Los precios son increíblemente razonables y los diseños frescos y novedosos. Pueden visitarlos en hazelandolive.com

Disfrútenlo!!
