There’s been a bit of a theme to my shopping lately:
I took advantage of a family trip to the city and did a little shopping earlier this week. I’ve been eyeing retro pinup styles for a long time, and am slowly working some 50’s fun into my look. Sometimes I feel like a bit of a late bloomer, at the age of 37, to be jumping into trying new styles of fashion and makeup, but it’s actually a natural evolution of my love for colour, line and design. I love colour, and it just makes sense to be adding a little dramatic style to the way I look since I spend so much time playing with colour and design in my artistic life. And being in my thirties means I’m braver to try things that I would have been self-conscious about in my teens & twenties.
It’s fun to play with colour, and I’m so glad I can do it in more than just painting. It’s a lot of fun. Next up will be shopping for and sewing dresses for my daughters in full-skirted 50’s styles. We are going to a wedding this summer and we’re going there in retro-glam style!
Shoes are Giulia from John Fluevog, and they are fantastic.
