Magnolia Eva- Lady V London

Fall is finally in the air and what a perfect dress to reflect that feeling!  The new Magnolia Eva Dress from Lady V London is absolutely stunning!  This is the first Eva style dress that I have worn and I'm in love.  The fit and cut is perfect!  This dress features a v-cut  cross over bust with a wide waistband that is very flattering.  It has capped sleeves and a large full circle skirt that has plenty of room for a petticoat if you choose.  I did not wear one for this look.  The skirt will fall below the knee. I love this classic looking vintage style.  I have always loved magnolia tress and this new print with magnolia blooms is stunning!  I like the contrast with the black background too.  This is going to be a style that I look forward to wearing all season.  I will add a cardigan and tights when the weather gets colder.  I think this may be the dress I wear to Thanksgiving dinner!  It has some stretch by the way! It can be machine washed on delicate. The Eva is available in sizes UK 8-20, but don't wait they will sell quickly!











As with every Lady V London dress I have ever worn, the quality is exceptional.  You can really tell that they put a lot of focus on that.  They are consistent in sizing which is very important when ordering online.  It's very frustrating when a company varies so much and you have to ship back. Just go by the chart and you should be good! 






I'm wearing the Double Faux Tortiseshell Hoops from Bow and Crossbones.  They are a great match for so many colors and looks! My gloves are vintage.

I have also shown in a few shots the amazing Siberian Camel Faux Fur Cape from Frilly Chantilly. It's the perfect accessory and will keep you warm in the colder temps.  I love how elegant it is. The capes are made and designed in England by Frilly Chantilly. They are available in several gorgeous colors.

Pinup Glam

Are you are looking to add glamour to your pinup wardrobe? I recommend the new line from Trashy Diva! It's the Ribbed Rayon Collection and it couldn't be any more beautiful!  I am wearing the Candice Gwen Lena Dress here. It's beaded detail around the bust is so gorgeous and the Ribbed Rayon is a very lush sturdy material. The bodice fits like a glove with lots of support and the full circle skirt is a flowy dream. The halter neck dress has a sweetheart neckline with a gathered bust. I really felt very well put together wearing this! I did have to size up for this one as it does not have any stretch, so measure accordingly. The 50's style dress is the perfect touch for a glamorous occasion. 












Trashy Diva has opened in Atlanta and if you are looking for high quality vintage reproduction clothing, look no further. We are so fortunate to have this shop here now. The Poncey-Highland location is perfect too! You will find all of the newest Trashy Diva collections there and even a lingerie boutique. Make it a girls day out and have a great time when you go!

In 1996 Trashy Diva started by selling vintage clothing. They added a few designs and gradually grew into the awesome company that we know today. There are stores in New Orleans and Atlanta with plans of more in the future! You can also find their clothing at many stockists around the world and online.

Daisy Jean Floral Brooches- Halloween Range

This season Daisy Jean Floral designed brooches around witches and the animals associated with them!  It's such a fun collection!  I'm featuring the witch herself, The Witches Flight and the Wise Watcher a beautiful barn owl.  Daisy Jean's brooches are laser cut, then hand painted and assembeled then coated with resin.  The end result is stunning!  I love Halloween so much and was thrilled to style these.  They are so special and you can really see all the detail and hard work involved in making them.  Daisy Jean has limited edition brooches for different seasons and themes throughout the year, so don't wait or you'll miss the one you have your eyes on!

  










I love the witches silhouette against the orange moon!  It just screams Halloween! 






All brooches feature a locking back.

Unicorn and Lavender Dreams

Frilly Chantilly has added some gorgeous gift boxes just in time for Christmas!  Your Sweet Dreams gift box will surely having you dreaming of unicorns!  It's the perfect gift for any little girl or someone who's a dreamer.  My daughter absolutely loves the Unicorn Wish Box!  The slippers are so cute and cozy.  Of course she loved the brush and change purse too! 


















      Her unicorn has been named Maggie.




😴😴😴😴😴😴😴😴





I had the pleasure of receiving the Lavender Sleep Box and it is just as dreamy as the unicorn, only a bit more sophisticated!  This box features a lavender sleep pillow that smells heavenly! Lavender will help you rest peacefully. This handmade pillow is so pretty too! Frilly Chantilly added some handmade lavender soap, a heart shaped bath bomb and some lavender essence oil to the box as well. I know any woman would be thrilled to get this set!  



















































   


La Diabla - Miss Fortune

I enjoy putting together fun Halloween looks so much!  Here's a favorite from this week.  The skirt and the the jumper are both from the very talented Miss Fortune!  I adore her creations. The La Diabla is a spiderweb sweater inspired from vintage knitwear. The jumper has just recently launched, so grab it before it's too late!  There are many other colors to choose from as well. The fit and quality are excellent. You can size down if you are in between, it has some stretch.












I added the spider brooch from Luxulite. Isn't it adorable?! It is the jumbo size in red. She has several sizes and colors available in them and you can coordinate with your Miss Fortune jumper. I am also thinking that I need to get one of the fly brooches!

Emerald Diamonds- Karina Dresses

This new Emerald Diamonds print from Karina Dresses is so gorgeous and it comes on the Trudy style which is a bonus!  I absolutely love everything about it!  The Trudy for fall comes with a 3/4 sleeve that is perfect for the cooler temps.  You'll be able to wear this dress all through the season and for the winter it will be great with a sweater and tights!  The color is just gorgeous too!  I have a thing for greens and this one tops the list.  The contrast of the black diamond pattern with the emerald green really stands out.  This is a great daytime dress for work or errands and then you can really dress it up for a night on the town.  The Trudy is always a favorite style of mine,  It has a great sweetheart neck, but it's still very modest.  As always the skirt will be a full circle that I love!  It hits me just below the knee and I am 5'8".  The fitted waistband pulls the middle in for a really polished look!  I definitely recommend a Trudy for your fall wardrobe! 














Karina Dresses are proudly made in the U.S.A.  They are also made for all body types and come in a wide range of sizes.  I believe that all women should be able look beautiful and feel confident.  You can be sure to achieve this in a Karina Dress! 







The Trudy comes in several other colorways for fall, but here is a closeup of the gorgeous Emerald Diamonds!





I accessorized in greens!

Voodoo Vixen Velvet

The new Voodoo Vixen Autumn Winter line is absolutely stunning!  This Nicki 30's Navy Velvet Gown is just one such example.  I can't describe how lush this dress is!  The full length is so elegant and the color is gorgeous. The velvet has a woven pattern that adds some great texture.  I love the fit of this dress! It has a plunging neck line with some pleated detail on the bust.  The wide fitted waist is so flattering and comfortable. This dress does fit generously, so you will probably not want to size up if you are close.  The Nicki features long sleeves with cuffs.  It has a hidden zipper in the back. This style is available in sizes S-XXL. It can be ordered directly from them or at many stockist worldwide.  I cannot wait to wear this all through the Fall and Winter! You will certainly be a stunner at all of the parties wearing it! 












Voodoo Vixen is a vintage inspired label that has unique styles for the modern woman. They are based out of London, but have in house designers in both London and L.A. here in the U.S. Their designs are always high quality and very pretty. I have always been extremely pleased with Voodoo Vixen.
