    The Corpse Bride Cosplay || Happy Halloween!

    Happy Halloween! This year is my first really involved costume – I had to upsize and make over this 1960s wedding gown to be The Corpse Bride. I really didn’t want to mess with the gown too much, so my makeover wasn’t very extreme. It had sleeves at one point, and I removed those. They had become frizzy from catching on sequins in the gown. After removing them, I realized I could reuse that lace as an overlay for the panel I put into the back so that it would fit me. To be honest, I was really afraid to ruin this dress — despite the fact that I’ve had…

    A Very Vintage Nightmare Before Christmas || Sally

    Happy October 1st! When I saw this 1950s dress from Backroom Finds, I knew I  needed it. Not only does it give off amazing Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas vibes, but the colors in general are so unique and gorgeous! Among other things, it is going to be part of my Halloween lookbook, wherein I’m trying to recreate various Tim Burton characters. I’m so excited to get going with some very Halloween content; this year is the first year where I’ve had the forethought to plan out some spooky things. This first day of October also brought forth some appropriately spooky weather: the fog rolled in overnight, and it…

    1940s Novelty Print and Plus Size Vintage Women

    Recently, my friend the lovely Laci Fay visited a hoarder house. Someone who frequents the theater where she works told her that their daughter had purchased this house, and it was full of vintage Laci might like. The daughter was happy to have Laci come and take what she wanted, before they threw it all away. The house originally belonged to three sisters. One on the main level, one upstairs, and one downstairs. Plus, an entire storage unit because one of the sisters had too much. When Laci arrived, she found out that the new owners of the house had already hosted an estate sale, and didn’t put out any…

    That 70’s Feeling

    You might have noticed that lately I’ve been really feeling the 70’s. So when Karina Dresses reached out to have me shoot some photos of the Megan Jelly Bean Dress for their fall 2020 collection, my brain went straight to… well, making it 70’s retro! I think this print is pretty timeless; it can read modern or vintage depending on the styling. It’s no secret that I really love Karina Dresses. I have worked with them several times, and have also bought myself a few prints I adored. They really are THE perfect go-to daily dress for a busy mom, a breastfeeding mom, a pregnant mom… basically, my top recommendation…

    Hello, Fall

    A week or so ago, I started getting items in the mail to do a little try-on-haul for a brand called Belle Poque. I have actually bought a few of their dresses over the years and I’ve always loved the brand, so when they reached out to me to collaborate on a haul video I was thrilled. In that haul was this cardigan. And as soon as I opened it, I knew it would be the PERFECT match for my Emily and Fin rainbow plaid skirt. I’ve actually already worn this outfit twice in the week that I’ve had the cardigan. I love it that much! And, it was nice…
