Blushing Bride

IMG_5659 IMG_5636 IMG_5666

Nope- I'm not getting married- haha! But this 1950s wedding dress called for a bridal themed post. I wore this dress to a Christmas ball last year, and as lovely as it is, I fear I won't find another occasion to wear it for. With that said, I am actually selling this beauty- it's in perfect condition, with the exception of about a 6" tear hidden in the chiffon skirts (I walked into a rose bush accidentally on the shoot- need I say more)? The tear is reasonably sized, but due to the fullness of the skirt, it definitely blends in. If you are interested in purchasing the dress for your next special event, or maybe even your big day, you can shoot me an email at simplicityphoto96@gmail.com

Love is in the Air

Happy Valentine's Day, Beauties! I knew I just had to sneak a Valentines outfit post in this week. V-day is one of the funnest holidays to get dressed up for, because it's the one time of the year where decking yourself in head-to-toe pink and red is totally acceptable! In honor of this lovely holiday, I've put together a fun video for you at the end of this post with a retro inspired makeup tutorial and a few other goodies ;)

And let's talk about the elephant in the room- yes, I am a redhead today! Thanks to this amazing wig from The Charming Violet, I was able to fulfill my life long dream of having long, red hair for the day.

I was so excited to find this pair of brilliant red flats, and and dusty rose capris on my last thrift run. Both were a very lucky find for me, because I am super picky about what kinds of pants I wear, and I rarely come across shoes I like in my size at thrift stores. These shoes were unworn-brand new!

Of course, I can't not mention this amazing flower crown, sent to me from Spellbound Crowns. I love a beautiful flower crown in the Spring, and Spellbound's designs are just about as pretty as they come!

Without further ado, enjoy this little video I put together for you!

A Class Act

IMG_4756 IMG_4763 IMG_4794

I had so much fun on this shoot- often there are just days where I walk away from snapping outfit photos and feel so inspired. Sometimes discovering a new location can do this for me- other times it can be as simple as coming back with photos I really like. I think this photo spot has such a neat, Mediterranean feel to it. 

Today I am featuring this lovely skirt and blouse from Romwe. I love the combination of the heather gray and cream rose skirt. Lately it seems like my style has grown up a little bit- I am still an avid vintage gal, but I've been really enjoying joining vintage style with modern trends. I feel like this combination lends a touch of sophistication to a style that can sometimes come across a bit more on the costume"y" side.

This super pretty necklace and earring set was sent to me from the ever lovely, Cati of Scrap Cati. I am in love with her beautiful Spring collection, and plan to feature a few more pieces in the coming weeks.
