News, Updates, Photos and More

I wanted to get a post in before I left for Vegas and update a few things. The first bit of new is that I got a job at Boss Vintage here in Denver. If you been or are going to Viva you will see that they have the biggest vendor booth there. We went in to look around the other day and they offered me a job so I'm pretty excited! I will get to work at a great store around fabulous clothes. And, I will be able to dress the way I prefer to.

The second bit of news has to do with Lauren Rennells fabulous new book Retro Makeup: Techniques for Applying the Vintage Look. First, it is a fabulous book and a great companion to her Vintage Hairstyling book so everyone should pick up a copy ASAP!! Second, I am in it! I had the opportunity to model for Lauren a few months back and finally got to see the finished product and I am quite happy with it. I did a Hedy Lamarr look in one and also reproduced some vintage cosmetics adds. If you get the chance to see the book look for me :-)

Lastly, here are some photos from the past few days.

Faux bangs, which I managed to wear fro 3 days straight.

  7. I have been following your blog for a little bit now and I have to say you are one of my favourites. You are so incredibly cute, unpretentious, and undelusional! You give us vintage-luvin' gals a good name! :) I'm also totally inspired by your looks and, especially, your weight loss trials. What you said in a past post about having no right to be unhappy with your body because it's something that can be controlled -- it was DEAD ON RIGHT. I've been trying to lose a few lbs, too. What you said rings in my head every single day and keeps me motivated. Thank you <3

  8. Congrats on the cool new job!

    Have fun at VLV!


  9. I just sent you a message on facebook when I saw you in the book! You look GORGEOUS! And you looked equally amazing every time I saw you in Vegas...I told my friends that you were the best drest/styled chick of the weekend. ;-) You have given me SO much motivation to shop Vintage.
