Hello ladies!

This is the outfit I wore the when I went back to work the week after I sprained my ankle. I didn't realize then I was supposed to be wearing my boot still. By the end of the day when this pic was taken, my ankle was worn out. Now I have been told it is 4 weeks with the boot. Good thing I bought several pairs of flats.
 
Dress: Dresslily.com ~$20

Shoes: Savers ~$7.50

Bolero: Zulily ~$15

Flower: Hobby Lobby Wedding section ~$5

Necklace: Antique store

Lipstick: Lipsense BluRed

Hello ladies!

I am trying a wetset with Lottabody setting lotion and old school rollers. Here are is a picture of the product and rollers, as well as a picture of me after the roll-up... LOL!




















I washed my hair and then let it dry until damp. I used a rattail comb to separate small sections of hair. I sprayed the LottaBody on my fingers and ran it over the section of hair befor rolling it up. I used the little plastic pin to hold the roller in place. I let my hair air dry, I was watching a show and didn't want to put the loud bonnet drier on my head...

Here is the finished product. It produced loose waves. I believe this is because I just let it air dry for about 3 hours. I believe if I had let it go several hours longer or used some heat on it before taking out the curlers, I would have had tighter curls. I will do another blub using the same rollers with heat later.



These waves lasted for 3 days, though. I mostly did high ponytails with suicide rolls and it worked out fine. This is before I got my hair color refreshed...

My New Clutch! LOVE

Hello ladies!

OMG! I have to share this with you ladies!

Many of you have seen the clutches that Tara makes and sells. She is super talented and I love her clutches. I just bought this one from her.

It's Ms. Green m... AAAAAAHHHHHH!!! I love Ms. Green...

Look at this clutch... Great quality and super CUTE!


It has a nice button to keep it closed...
The yarn is good quality.




It has embellishment gems on the back.
The heels and text are metallic yarn.

The inside and under the handle are duct tape to make it durable and cleanable.

Since she made mine, she has started giving the option of including a little compact mirror on the inside of the flap.
 
Thank you Tara... I LOVE IT!!!

Kisses for Now

Sprained My Ankle, Now I Need Some Flats...

Hello ladies!

I'm back! Sorry I haven't posted in a while; I took some mental time off but now I am back. Last Saturday I sprained my ankle tumbling down a hill while taking a little break during a kayaking trip. Luckily, I was able to work from home this week. I followed directions by staying off of it, keeping it elevated, icing it, and wearing the dang boot. My ankle is doing much better today, I can even walk on it now. I still don't have full range with it and it is super tender. I won't be able to wear heals for a few weeks, so I decided to go out today and find some flats. I found a few pair; I also found a few other things while it was out that I will show you too.

I found this pair a few weeks ago. I thought, you know, I don't have any flats that I can wear with my outfits when I go somewhere I will walk a lot...


I found this super cute pair of slippers at Plato's Closet for $10. They are brand new... SCORE!

Today I went to Savers specifically to find "I sprained my ankle and need flats for a few days" shoes. Of course the Savers near near me has no promising clothing in my size, but I sometimes find good scarves/bandanas and shoes there; I have only had luck with clothing I like in my size at the Las Vegas areas Savers... Since I was looking for shoes today, I was in luck.

I found this super cute pair of black flats with the wide rounded toe and a buckle for $5 and brand new red slippers for $10. Woo Hoo!




My Savers finds today: All for $26 SCORE!!!
Shoes, owl bandana, bracelets, and Betty Boop purse with wallet
 
A few months ago Tara was telling me about B.A.I.T shoes that she absolutely loves and they were having a sale that week. Well, you know I couldn't resist some online shopping, so off I went...
https://www.baitfootwear.com/
I found these wonderful black and white saddle shoes:

They are super comfy and cute to boot! Love them!!! I wore them to the Endless Indulgence Dress Swap the other day. I was on my feet for over 2 hours and no sore feet. WOOHOO!!!



I have a plain pair of black flat sandles I can wear as well:

So I now have 5 pairs of flat to get by for the next couple of weeks until my ankle is stong enough to wear heels again.

Kisses for Now

Spotlight on Atomic Wigs!

Please welcome Kenniy Kerr, owner and head stylist of Atomic Wigs!

She just started her wig business. Her goal is to do vintage styles, as she's a pin up herself!

Before I get into her business, I'd like to tell you a bit about her:

How did you get into the pin-up lifestyle?

I got into the pinup life style because I love the concept of every single body is beautiful. Every one. I have a lot of self confidence issues and I've gained a lot of confidence from dressing pinup.
What inspires and motivates you in the hairstyling/wig business?

Hair color and making people feel beautiful are what inspire me the most as a hair dresser and wig seller/ maker.
Why wigs? What do you like about them? Why should we buy/wear them?

You should buy a wig if it really suits your life style and needs. My hair is falling out from stress so I shaved a lot of it off to cope. Wigs give me the confidence real hair can't. And I know I'm not the only one who feels that way!
I found her on Facebook via Christina. Some of the wigs she had on hand:

I decided I wanted something different. One, I want to change my hair color without bleaching. 2. I have a lot of bad hair days or days when the husband wants to get up and go to breakfast and I do not have time to fiddle with my hair but I'm not going out looking anything less than marvelous! I also have a huge thing for the tv show That Girl and the thus, the 60s...so here is my inspiration as I've longed desired a vibrant red head. I went with a more vibrant red but this style.




First of all, the process started with a simple FB message. She communicated with me, listened to what I wanted, told me my options, and began to look for a wig that met my demands. She dyed it, styled it, sent it, and included the net and a stand as well as a brush.

Here are the results:



My husband was so pleased he had to take me around and show me off. That made my day!!

What do you think?

Total Treasure Trove of Hats and Gloves at Antique/Thrift Shop Lost & Found Utah

Christina has mentioned this place before, but today I want to talk it some more, because it's an absolute treasure trove at times for the UT pin-up gal.

Lost & Found Thrift is located at 75 E 500 S, Bountiful, Utah. It's antiques, cards, teacups and saucers, glass, games, old magazines, everything you can think of.

I've been shopping here for years and buy something every time I visit. Recently I found an adorable purple fascinator--true 50s or 60s. I can't wait to wear it.

Today I walked in and was amazed at the hats and gloves. It was a treasure trove! Take a look!


Vintage gloves on the dressers, vintage gloves hanging on the line. Dresses. And so many adorable hats!

I have plenty of gloves so I left those for some other lucky lady--maybe you?

I nabbed these!


My fabulous finds!!

OOTD:
Dress: AB Studio (They have lots of 60s prints and cuts) I found one on poshmark if you're looking for it.

A very cute nautical-style straw hat.

Cherry BOMB!! It's a sweater, vintage, made in England. Pardon my husband for photo bombing me. LOL

 And she (the owner) gave me a reasonable deal. Today was just my lucky day. You never know what you'll find in there. Maybe it'll be a fascinator; maybe a brooch; maybe a sweater, maybe some shoes. Maybe your hubby will find a vintage Playboy. You never know!

Check it out and when you do, comment on our Facebook with a photo!
