A Few Winter Outfits


Hello there! Seeing as I am not leaving the house much these days, I made a little lookbook video showing some outfit I would be wearing if I had to ;) I hope to style some more looks and make more videos like this one soon.

I'm also still obsessed with eye makeup, so here is a new video from my new-ish beauty channel too!

Lash Love


 










I have never really worn false eyelashes other than a few brief experiments in high school. Recently, as I have been getting more and more into makeup again, I noticed that all the beauty guru people wear false eyelashes all the darn time! So, as a result I figured I would give them a try...

And these ones are huge! How do people wear these daily? I find them really uncomfortable actually, like...I always know they are there? What are the false lash rules? Everyone knows they're fake right? Because they are SO LONG, but like, do we all just pretend they aren't fake? I don't think I get it.

Except, I do LOVE how they look in photos. Hmm.

Have you ever worn false eyelashes? What are your thoughts? ;)

Wearing Vintage Style To Work? My Thoughts and Advice



While unfortunately I don't wear my usual vintage style to my day job myself, not only because I am required to wear the uniform t-shirts, but also because working in production I don't want to ruin my clothes, I made a video discussing my thoughts on the subject all the same! So tell me, do you wear vintage to work?

Video Killed the Radio Star


So...I've been hibernating, but I have still been active over on YouTube!

I know I sound like a broken record, but it seems, just like last year, late winter/early spring is when I really dig in and get a bunch on the "page" (okay, document). So I have been writing, and helping install new wood flooring at my parents place, and it's been cold...and I haven't been very glam lately.

But here are two of my more recent videos covering most of my brooch collection, and hopefully you enjoy this peek into my costume jewelry box :) I hope you are all well and get some cozy hibernation time all to yourselves too!

Blue Monday










I thrifted this amazing huge blue 1980's coat back in November. I was excited to try and style it, but I'm actually not very happy with this ensemble in the end. I wanted to wear solid black tights with this, but I couldn't find a pair in my dresser and these sheer tights just aren't giving the same all-black-everything look that I was after. I also love wearing this dress, it is one of my winter staples, but I wish it had a higher neckline. This fabric is a polyester crepe from Joanns that I oddly rather like (odd, since I don't normally like poly) and sadly I have never been able to find any more of it since I would love a dress just like this one with a high close neck.

I also regret the decision to go with the red patterned scarf, I would have preferred a black one, but I have had trouble finding a solid or nearly solid black scarf over the years.

So I am full of complaints today! But it is a Monday, so really can you blame me? At least I still love this blue coat, such a great find it makes me want to go thrifting more often! Alas I am on a super budget this year because I am going to have to pay taxes soon (that millennial small business worker "private contractor" life is, uh, quite irritating at this point) which has made even a thrifting out of the question.

Alas, I shall just blast New Order's Blue Monday and will surely feel a bit better for it. When the 1980's got it right, they really got it right.

Fabrics : Cataloging Catalogs MW S/S 1950



For the reproduction seamstresses out there, here are the fabrics available to Ward's customers for Spring/Summer 1950! I always love these pages and descriptions since it can be hard to decide on fabrics for the most authentic look when you are new to vintage style sewing. I only wish, as ever, that I could order up some of these fabrics for myself!

Enjoy!
