Simple Hair for Busy Girls

Good afternoon, dolls! Today I'm sharing a simple trick for looking lovely when time isn't on your side. It's a look I turn to if I'm busy, lazy or fighting with my hair. Be sure to detangle and comb your hair before you start.  You'll need
a teasing comb,
a rat-tail comb
a brush,
bobby pins or a headband,
and if you want, hairspray or pomade.

1. Tease all your hair from the root, using a teasing comb or hairbrush. It looks awfully wild, and that's why you don't stop there. :)

2. Part the sides of your hair. You'll be pinning those back later. 

3. a. Spray your hair or use a bit of pomade. b. If you don't use these, brush your hair back with hair gel or water. 

4. Using bobby pins, put back those locks of hair you parted earlier. Alternately, put a headband on! 

Instant bombshell! :)


Vintage Kitchen Items!

Morning, dolls and fellas! You probably fit what the style was back in 1959, but your kitchen may be begging to imitate you! Well, luckily it can!

Nostalgia Electrics makes top-notch kitchen electrics that look as sleek and lovely as if they were from the nifty fifties!

Let's start with the hot dog roller! They're still used in restaurants and homes around the world. It's like grilling, but without the higher risk of fire!

Next up is the ice cream maker! This was an important machine because it was a money-saver. This also enabled people to control the nutritional value of their frozen desserts. You can also use it for gelato and fro-yo's. Of course, you're not doing the churning!

Next is a donut maker! Enough said on that.

I think we ALL love hot chocolate, but the mess is a bother! That's why this machine is perfect! You can make lattes, coffee, and hot chocolate! http://nostalgiaelectrics.com/product/hcm700retrored-retro-series-hot-chocolate-maker/

Now come's the fun collection: A line of Coca-Cola themed appliances! If you or someone you love is fond of this drink to an extreme, and they love vintage stuff, then they should print an order form. Every machine here has at least one Coca-Cola logo in it. http://nostalgiaelectrics.com/coca-cola-collection/

These items are available on nostalgiaelectrics.com It's modern technology with the beautiful designs of the past!

Check back soon, loves!


Get Your Halloween Gear!

You're into vintage clothes, I know, otherwise you'd stray as FAR away from this blog as you can. And you wanna own Halloween again, while not being overly costume-y. I totally get that. So, here's some cool stuff I found while browsing the internet, as always. Remember: I don't own any of these things. I'm just a college kid. The stores are listed as UV (Unique Vintage), PUG (pin-up girl), LB (Lindy Bop) and CS (Corset Story)

Heartbreaker Super Spy Dress (PUG) is adorable! It's very Audrey, and one of the models on the site looks like Bettie Page. It only comes in sizes for thinner or plus size women. http://www.pinupgirlclothing.com/heartbreaker-super-spy-dress.html

The Unique Vintage Going Steady Taffeta Party Dress (UV) is meant for dates and prom! I wish they had these in May! But they're incredibly pretty and come in ivory, apricot, black, and aqua. This link is for the ivory dress. Perfect for weddings, and it comes in colors for brides, bridesmaids, and guests! Before I forget, if you use the code STEADY50 at checkout, that's 50% off the purchase! http://www.unique-vintage.com/ivory-taffeta-strapless-party-dress.html

Black Steampunk Skirt and Black Velvet skirt (Both CS) are not rockabilly/pin-up, but they sure are cuuuuuuuute! You can wear it for a costume party, and then break it out whenever you want or need to be in all black everything. Don't forget to find some gloves!

Coffee and Clothing

Rise and shine, pumpkins! It's fall! Unique Vintage and I know that floral prints are for ALL seasons, even if the actual flower isn't. So I went through all the floral print dresses. Here are the ones that left me breathless!






These are perfect for any occasion! Unless you've got a uniform. If you still want this for, say, prom or to hit up a nightclub, go on over to UV!

Until next time!
