I was recently gifted the most beautiful vanity mirror and its inspired me to create some awesome showgirl looks with some of my vintage costumes. This vintage Carmen-Miranda-like costume has been sitting in my closet for 3 years dying to be worn. I just never had the right jewelry to match it until I remembered to check out Bow & Crossbones! They always have the most amazing selection of vintage and vintage inspired jewels and gems. I am currently obsessed with stacking bangles and they have them in all colors. I legit have over 30 of them! My earrings and necklace are also Bow & Crossbones. They match all of my fun tiki style outfits and the showgirl costume I am wearing here! They literally have every style you can Imagine and at great prices.
So happy to have such talented friends like Daniel of DMR Depictions to always understand and capture each one of my visions beautifully. I can’t believe we shot these in my dressing room! Remember to make the time to book fun and creative shoots. You can freeze time in a photograph. I love how I will be able to look at these in the future and be glad that I took them.
Anyway! If you love Bow & Crossbones just as much as I do, stay tuned. I am going to be hosting a giveaway! Make sure you follow my instagram @vintagevandal so you can enter once I post the giveaway flyer! If you can’t wait, just visit Bow & Crossbones and treat yourself like I did!
Ya girl lives in capris! Trust me when I tell you that I have capris in almost every color and print you can imagine. My newest pair comes from Vixen by Micheline Pitt. These faux-denim capris are the bees knees on this big ol booty. They fit like a dream and are belted at the waist (which I always need because of my measurements). Since Ive gotten them, I’ve already worn them at least 15 times. They are super comfortable and look really awesome with some of my vintage tops (like the one I am wearing here!).
On this day I went to Lake Las Vegas with my friend Tim and I am glad he got some shots of me and Nala hanging out on the grass by the water. I feel like she’s my best accessory! I love her so much. Read More
You guys know I love Westernwear and my hats. I legit have floor to ceiling hat boxes full of incredible headwear that helps me get through bad hair days haha. One of my favorite hat companies is Baileys. Ive been buying Baileys hats for some time now and I am really excited that I got my hands on this Woods Panama Fedora style (its my first!). It went really well with my denim shirt and jeans and even better with my new bolo tie my friend Crystal gifted me. You guys always ask me about my hats so get your butt on over to Bailey Hats and purchase your new favorite hat!
I love a comfortable circle skirted dress that I can have fun accessorizing. The Peggy Retro dress from Tatyana covers all of those bases. Its both comfortable and so much fun to wear. I have it in black too because a girl can never have too many dresses! Love how this turquoise one matches all of my beachy accessories! My crab wicker purse is Kate Spade, my earrings/necklace is from Luxulite, and my shoes are by Charlotte Olympia. Such a fun look! Read More

This romper is total Island vibes and I am glad I got to wear it and shoot it at the most perfect location! Read More
