Spectacular Sunday~Connect The Dots

Polka dots have long been a favored pattern. You need to be careful though as they can make a person look larger that they are. Another thing to be watchful for is  the size and quantity of the polka dot pattern. Too many, too small can overwhelm your onlookers.

When wearing polka dots keep in mind what the appearance of your ensemble does for your body and your onlookers. You don’t want your look to be too busy and you definitely don’t want it to “enlarge” your body shape.

Throwback Thursday~We’re All Heart

Valentines Day celebrations have been around since no one knows when for sure. What we do know is that it is universally enjoyed around the world. I dug deep into the internet and came away with some striking fashions for this “heart”felt occasion.

Head to toe, red is the way to go.

These legs are so “lovely”.
Now for some footwear “he’ll” really adore.
Here are some looks you can really “clutch”.
Add some polish and you’ve “nailed” it for sure.
 
 
Regardless of the century or season, sweethearts are always in fashion.

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…

If you want to see some other Valentine Pink ideas and fashions check out my Valentine Pink Pinterest Board

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?

Throw Back Thursday~Hair Ye, Hair Ye!

 Our apologies for the delay in this Thursday’s post. Miss Trisha passed the ball to Corrina and she dropped it. So here we are late in the evening “throwing” the ball back into play.

From the 1920’s to the 1970’s hair has taken quite a trip in fashion. From slicked down and close to bushed out and fluffed up. Let’s take a stroll down memory lane.

Spectacular Sunday~Sweetheart Necklines

February is definitely the month for sweethearts. With that in mind I thought it would be fun to see the variety of clothing available with sweetheart necklines.

Here are a few of my favorites:
Start with a “fresh” and “youthful” look
                                                     

Moving forward to more mature looks
 
                                    
Pizazz!
                    

                                              

                      And “off the charts”
Regardless of your style preference, there’s a “sweetheart” for everyone.

Saturday Morning Special: Steampunk

 Today a Facebook Friend of mine Cherie Straw  is having a SteamPunk Masquerade Ball tonight here in Des Moines, Iowa. IT maybe chlily out, but Des Moines knows how to be daring, different and have some fun.

If you are looking for a mask there are some unique ones out there. Like this one for instance
 

For me I love dressing up in costumes and going to parties and events. Doing so is referred to “Cosplay”

Cosplay (コスプレ kosupure?), short for “costume play”, is a type of performance art in which participants wear costumes and accessories to represent a specific character or idea. Cosplayers often interact to create a subculture centered on role play. A broader use of the term “cosplay” applies to any costumed role play in venues apart from the stage, regardless of the cultural context.

Most people think of Cosplay in a Japanese sense or Comic Books Geeks who dress up and go to Comic Cons but Cosplay has branched farther out into many father depths. I dress up and go to Comic Cons as well but I am actually a part of an Iowa SteamPunk group, go to  the Renaissance Fair in SteamPunk garb, do Steam Punk Photo Shoots and  go to  Steam Punk parties.

Fashion is more than how you do your hair, makeup and style your clothes. Fashion is about being brave enough to wear Cosplay I think too. Do you dare to go beyond the norm and be different?

SteamPunk has it’s own fashion style as well. There is Gothic Steam Punk, There is Elizabethan SteamPunk, Victorian SteamPunk and then the mis match kind. IT is fun to be in groups like the Iowa Steam Punk and see the costumes in pictures when they take them because you never know what you will see and how the costumes will be.

Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery,[1] especially in a setting inspired by industrialized Western civilization during the 19th century. Therefore, steampunk works are often set in an alternative history of the 19th century’s British Victorian era or American “Wild West”, in a post-apocalyptic future during which steam power has regained mainstream use, or in a fantasy world that similarly employs steam power. Steampunk perhaps most recognizably features anachronistic technologies or retro-futuristic inventions as people in the 19th century might have envisioned them, and is likewise rooted in the era’s perspective on fashion, culture, architectural style, and art. Such technology may include fictional machines like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, or the modern authors Philip Pullman, Scott Westerfeld, and China Mieville. Other examples of steampunk contain alternate history-style presentations of such technology as lighter-than-air airships, analog computers, or such digital mechanical computers as Charles Babbage and Ada Lovelace‘s Analytical Engine.

Steampunk may also, though not necessarily, incorporate additional elements from the genres of fantasy, horror, historical fiction, alternate history, or other branches of speculative fiction, making it often a hybrid genre. The term steampunk’s first known appearance was in 1987, though it now retroactively refers to many works of fiction created even as far back as the 1950’s or 1960’s.

Steampunk also refers to any of the artistic styles, clothing fashions, or subcultures, that have developed from the aesthetics of steampunk fiction, Victorian-era fiction, and films from the mid-20th century.[2] Various modern utilitarian objects have been modded by individual

Most do not buy their costume as they are so expensive. There are a few costume shops here in Des Moines where you can start piecing together things but even still it can get pricey. I went to Nobbies to get most of my jewelery and earrings and gloves. I bought a few items at the Ren Faire. I bought my Corset at Queen Victoria’s Secret for $100 but it is handmade  and bone and hand grommeted so it was well worth it. Queen Victoria is Scarlett Moffat and she can be emailed here .

This isn’t a Queen Victoria is is just an example

Here is the Corset I bought from QV

Arm Vial Band I bought at Ren Faire

 
Here are some snaps from  a recent Steam Punk Photo Shoot of Me:
