Please Welcome My Cherry Doll For The Month of May - Miss Jaslyn Rose!
I met this beautiful doll while we were both competing in Pinup Doll Australia last year. She is a true gem and such a kind soul. I have loved watching her style grow and I feel super proud to be part of that. Make sure you check out her new Blog too and follow her work on Face Book and Instagram!
1. Who are you and what is your pinup persona?
eg.... Name/pinup name
Hi, I'm Jaslyn, I'm a 19 year old pinup who has a love for everything retro, vintage, rummaging through op shops and garage sales, history, photography, singing, and animals! My Pinup name is Miss Jaslyn Rose as my name is pretty unique personally I haven't met many other people with my name except for the lady who my Mum named me after who was a radio presenter for Triple J/Double J called Jaslyn Hall. Hence why my pinup name Miss Jaslyn Rose stuck.
2. Where are you from?
I currently live in Newcastle NSW Australia and have lived in the Hunter Valley region for my whole life.
3. What do you love about pinup?
I love pinup as it's an amazing way to express myself in a way that I never knew how to before finding the amazing world of pinup! I love that pinup has given me a whole new level of confidence that I never used to have, I used to be a very quiet and pretty shy person when I was in high school and was a bit of an introvert and pinup has let me break free from this and I'm now able to go up to people and introduce myself to new people at events, I have made so many amazing friend's thanks to pinup. Another thing I love about pinup is the community I love how supportive everyone is and the culture towards building fellow pinups up rather than down. I constantly try my best to help new pinups and introduce more people to the amazing world of pinup. I plan on hopefully running a pinup event of some sort in the future and hope to run a few best dressed competitions at some local events.
4. How did you find out about Cherry La Blaze Vintage and Rockabilly?
I first found out about Cherry La Blaze through Pinup Doll Australia 2018 as she was a fellow contestant. During the periods coming up to Pinup Doll Australia I also entered in the Pinup Registry's Pinup of the month in June and was lucky enough to take out the prize which was a voucher from Cherry La Blaze Vintage and Rockabilly where I purchased my first item, from them I have been buying vintage inspired goods from Cherry La Blaze which are always gorgeous items.
5. What is your favorite product that you have purchased from our store so far?
Definitely a gorgeous pinafore from Louella DeVille Boutique which has a gorgeous cowgirl print on it! The pinafore is super comfy and I love that I can wear it as a playsuit or with the skirt for a feminine twist it's great for many occasions!
6. What do you do for work?
I am currently working as a waitress at a local seafood restaurant and am currently doing photography part time as I have always had a love for photography and being able to capture beautiful moments I want to hopefully start photographing more pinups. I also model for fun mainly but a goal of mine is to get published this year.
7. What/who inspires you and your personal style?
I am inspired by so many things in the pinup my world I am mainly inspired by the pinups of the 1940s and the Andrew Sisters they always looked so beautiful whilst staying so strong during World War II. I am also inspired by the pinups with a wild west flair as I have a love for gingham and being on the farm.
8. Sweet or savory?
¿Por qué no ambos? I am both a sweet and savory lover I love some salted caramel occasionally but I have definitely been more savory lately.
9. Favorite quote/advice and why
One of my current favourites is, "Never be afraid to be a poppy in a field of daffodils" - Michaela DePrince I love this quote as I believe individuality is so important! Never conform to the norms and always be yourself, this is so important for new pinups as I believe it's so important to let yourself shine and find your own unique sense of style. I believe I am still finding my own particular style but I always try to let my personality shine. I'm nowhere near to being perfect and I still have a long way to go on my pinup journey but one thing I will always be is myself and I won't let anyone let me think I should be someone else. That's why I love being a pinup as I am able to be me and I am able to be confident in myself.
Thank you so much doll!
I have loved getting to know you more and thank you so much for your ongoing support.
