Hollywood Vintage

It is inevitable to not think about the timeless beauty of the women of the Hollywood vintage time era. A time perhaps most of us would want an escape to. Movie stars like Marilyn Monroe occupied the big screen with their dainty and innocent presence. Glitter, chiffon, and lace fabrics would transcend over their hourglass figures, leaving all the men speechless. Every woman had the right to feel glamorous, dainty, and fabulous. I sometimes feel as though that fabulous glamour has escaped some of us in the busy life of today. The ladies of today do not get as much extra spare time to get dolled up. If you are anything like me (which I am sure many are) you are going to college and working a part-time job. On weekend nights I spend them mostly working at the cinema, looking effortlessly chic in an all plain black uniform. My uniform consists of a black polo shirt, black dress pants, and black shoes sadly, no hints of glitter or sparkle anywhere. I find myself more than often being overdressed to go run simple errands. I will be the girl wearing red lipstick, in a light weight cheetah button up, with a vintage peter pan collar necklace, at the checkout line in Wal Mart. I tend to look slightly over done standing next to the girl wearing the Mickey Mouse pajamas (you guys know who I am talking about). I thought about ways to bring that glamour back into our busy lives somehow. Sometimes all it takes is a little bit of spark and creativity to step back in time. Why not wear shiny gold blouses, with sheer fabrics, and beaded tops during daylight? And suddenly, I thought to myself, that is it! So with this, I invite you to escape with me into our vintage Hollywood fantasy and maybe pick up some ideas on the way for yourself. I know there is a Marilyn Monroe or perhaps an Audrey Hepburn in all of us dying to come out!

Designer Sneak Peek!

Hello fellow fashionistas,

I know the blog has been out for quite some time for which I do apologize! Fashion INC. has been incredibly busy this semester planning their Hollywood Vintage Fashion Show! We all know how it gets when you want to be at 20 places at once but unfortunately you just can't. As a college student I know how hectic it can get and has been. But we should always find time to do what we love and enjoy! Therefore, I thought I would give our readers a little sneak peek on my line for the show, in which I will be designing/styling for. This means I will create some pieces from scratch mixed with items that are already created.

Designing a line has been more work than I originally thought (and I'm only doing 7 looks!) but a lot of fun. Designing clothes has been something that I have wanted to try for a while but with the lack of sewing skills, I always seem to get discouraged. However, this year I have found my self trying new things without holding back. That is the way it should be, you should never hold back because of fear. You will find yourself regretting the things you could have done.
My inspiration for my looks comes from several things. I find my fashion aesthetic to constantly change but one thing that has remained the same is its daintiness. With this look I want to incorporate a girly, edgy, sexy, Hollywood vintage feel to the clothing. I took a few snapshots of some of the things I have been working with. I hope you enjoy!
