Recently I was able to combine my two great loves- vintage and makeup, when I collaborated with photographer Laura Okita, of the blog Paper Mothball Vintage. Laura is a fellow vintage enthusiast and collector, as well as a former model and super talented photographer. I basically want to be her when I grow up.

We decided on a 50’s beach theme, and Laura styled the entire shoot herself, in addition to photographing it digitally and on film.  We worked with a beautiful model Valen, from Muse models, and Jennifer Covington-Bowers did hair. I was so happy to be able to do makeup on a vintage inspired  shoot, because its the kind of beauty I love the best and it was the combination of my two favorite things. I am SO thrilled with the final images and I hope you enjoy them as well!

I’ll be shooting with Laura again next week so stayed tuned for more beautiful images, next time with an Edwardian theme!

Hello My Vintage Loves! Matthew and I attended the rockabilly weekend, Viva Las Vegas in mid April, and we had an amazing time! Some of our adventures are highlighted in this video, which Matthew has been hard at work editing since our return. Check out the car show, the pool party, the vintage shopping and the dancing!

If you ever have the chance to attend Viva Las Vegas I highly recommend it- it’s exhausting but SO fabulous!  It’s worth it just to go and see all the fabulous vintage fashions that the ladies have been searching for and waiting to wear all year. I think of it as the Olympics of vintage fashion, for the 50’s-60’s.

Please enjoy this video and stay tuned for more posts and videos coming soon!
