My July Cherry Doll is all the way from the other side of the country yet we have connected through our love of all things vintage, kitsch and colourful!
Please welcome Kirra Jarvis AKA
Please have a read and get to know this stunning doll a little more and make sure you give her a follow!
1. Who are you and what is your pinup persona?
My pinup name is Miss Joycurve. I came up with this name from inspiration with my own body.. I'm joyful and curvy.
2. Where are you from?
I'm from the West.. Good old chilled Perth.
3. What do you love about pinup?
There are lots of reasons why I love pinup. I love how you can express your own flare to the mid century fashion of pinup. With that being lots of bright colours and loving the modern take or being a true collector and living the mid century fashion dream realness.
One of the things I dearly do love is that no matter what size you can rock this look. Pinup has lots of different genres to it and I'm so happy to be apart of this group of people.
4. How did you find out about Cherry La Blaze vintage and Rockabilly?
I found out about cherry la blaze from a beautiful friend of mine that does pinup photography here in Perth she told me to jump online and check out the store.
5. What is your favourite product that you have purchased from our store so far?
I purchased the amazing Daisy Jean floral ice cream earrings I absolutely adore these and I have worn them so much already.
6. What do you do for work?
Currently I am a store manager/ stylist for a store that has beautiful vintage inspired fashion and I've been there just over 4 years now.
7. What/who inspires your personal style?
I have never really been one to copy someone else's look persay but who doesn't love the stunning Miss Victory violet. I have always been into fashion at a young age dressing my self in cute dresses and my grandmother making me clothing from vintage patterns and showing me starlets from back in the 30s, 40s and 50s. I guess she is also one that inspired me as she is a very creative artist so I've always been around colour all my life.
8. Sweet or Savory?
Wow this is a tough one hahaha I do love a good ice cream sundae but I'm currently on a health journey and been watching what goes down the mouth hole haha. In saying that I do extremely love home cooked fresh bread out of the oven with a little butter. Mmmmmm.
9. Favourite quote/advice and why?
My advice I always stand by is, never worry about what others think I huge thing I find each day is woman hating on there body and saying that they aren't good enough. Society needs to wake up and accept you for all your greatest at the end of the day you are you and with all the powers in the world unfortunately you can't be someone else. Never matter what someone thinks of your outfit, what you are wearing or what you look like the only person that matters is you! And your inner beauty always shines at the end of the day. Go out into the world knowing you can't always please everyone if someone hates you it's their issue not yours.. Pay them no mind.
10. Anything else you would love to share?
New pinups starting out or ladies wanting to try the style but to afraid to saying that they can't do it... Stop telling yourself you can't.. Anything in life is possible and seeing yourself in a different way can be a shock. You have one life try everything you can and enjoy all life's little perks.
Thank you so much doll!
It's been a pleasure getting to know you more and thank you for supporting my little biz!
