Mad Men Monday: Vintage PinUp Inspired Art-Tootsie Pop

Some of you may or may not know but I love to draw. My Art page is The Art of Trisha Trixie Last year I spent a whole year just drawing. My goal? 50 Figures and 50 faces in a year (Actually I started in March and ended in December). It made a vast improvement on how I drew my eyes and lips and other features. I took classes online and elsewhere. I showcased my work in art galleries and events. I sold art at booths and fairs. Art was my life last year. Partially trying to get over things in my life I turned to art for healing. Also I wanted to improve. I wanted to see where it would take me. Funny enough…it took back into Modeling. Back into Fashion. and now Back into Art.

This year as you can see my focus is more so on the Fashion and Modeling side but I was feel though the artist in me was missing. Sketching figures for designs is one thing, but doing true fashion illustration is another. Staying with the PinUp theme and showcasing aprons as my line is this year, I drew a picture of a pal of mine in the industry….Miss Tootsie Pop!

I am showing you both versions with the original white dotted top to the leopard version of the top.

Spectacular Sunday~Asian Beauty

There is an enchanting beauty to the Asian dress. I do not know whether it is the shimmer and sheen of their fabrics, the cuts and lines of their items or the vibrancy in their design. What I do know is that their fashions hold an ethereal attraction to me. I am enthralled with it. I look upon their dresses and other clothing items and I feel as if I have been transformed and taken away to another place and time. Allow me to show you a few of their intriguing designs.

Most of these are a style called Cheongsam and come in a variety of colors.
Let’s start with red. Do you recall from last week’s “Try It Tuesday” post which reds are cool and which are warm? Did you “try it”?

What about you? Is your color blue?

Now we take a look at the yellows, which were very difficult to find. It seems yellow is a less common color.

Shall we move forward to green?
And then there’s orange. You have to be careful here. Fashion shades blur at times; reds & oranges walk a fine line on a thin tightrope.
Now, purple. Shades of purple.
Pink shades are lovely. From bold to pastel.
Now on to the lovely black backgrounds.
And we finish with the white backgrounds.
As you can see, it does not matter which color or shade you choose, 
this particular style is amazingly beautiful no matter what. 
What is your favorite fashion/style?

Wear It Wednesday: Vintage Valentine’s Fashion

Well, this time this post is going to be more like…What am I wearing tomorrow? With Valentine’s Day literally around the corner everyone is clamoring to figuring out what to wear, what shoes, what purse, hair, makeup etc.

I have been planning for weeks. Up until yesterday though of course. I went and found myself a Vintage looking Pink Dress. (Love pink can you tell?)

Sneak peek here (you have to wait until AFTER Vday to see the dress in action)

Then I went to this SUPER FAB place I go to all the time I think some of the girls know me by name. The place is called Atomic Garage. It’s in Des Moines in Valley Junction and I just ADORE them.Everything is Vintage, Retro etc… I just love the Vintage look and this store really helps me pull it together.

I bought this cute little Vintage purse, gloves and pendant to wear with my outfit. The purse needs a bit of work as the snap was coming off, but they knocked down the price a bit for me and I glued it back on today when I was working on my shoes.

And then the shoes…

I have been working on the shoes all day. I could go buy them or make my own. I would prefer to make my own. I reconstruct many things and one of my friends who redesigns shoes got me on this Reconstrcut kick so I have been giving a whirl at DIY projects for myself.

Here is what they started out looking like. They were actually Black about two weeks ago but I forgot to take a picture of them like that. Then I tried to spray paint them and yeah well that didn’t work so thrid time is a charm I guess…

They are unfinished but here is what I have so far… I am repainting them  with a softer pink and in a new way…(it’s a secret) I think I have finally found the formula for making shoes now. We will see how they hold up. The ones I did for New York did NOT stand up to the NY City Streets so I can back to the drawing board and hopefully I figured it out now. We will see..

I painted the underside too but that looks weird right now so I’m not showing you (Giggle) I added a fringe on the inside. I cut up an old sheer bag I got at a gift party and used the top part of the bag for the inside ruffle. Ingenious DIY don’t you think? Well, I do anyway…

And if you are the curios type come back after Valentine’s Day to see what I did for my Vintage Hairstyle, how I did my makeup and how the who ensemble all turned out!

What are YOU planning on Wearing for Valentine’s Day? Anything Special?
