    Erstwilder Fan Favourites!

    Erstwilder Fan Favourites!

    It's that time again!

    The fabulous team at Erstwilder have released a super exciting collection just in time to brighten everyone's spirits.

    The Fan Favourites Collection launched today at 12:30PM  is full of VIP {Very Important Pieces} that have been remade in different colours, or slightly different designs. They have also been the most requested by us, the Erstwilder obsessed lovers of all things Erstwilder!

    I have always been a sucker for Fairy Bread so when Erstwilder gifted me the fairy Bread Brooch plus the matching Large Neck Scarf I nearly fell off my chair with excitement. The fairy Bread Brooch made from high quality layered resin and comes complete with no nibbles taken out and covered in sprinkles, so it's full of deliciousness and ready to be pinned to your best vintage blouse or cardigan. Or match it with the Large Neck Scarf for something a little extra. All neck and head scarves are made from 100% Polyester, with a velvet chiffon feel making them a dream to wear. There is also stud earrings and a necklace available too, so you can be completely matchy-matchy!

    Now every pinup I'm sure has had mermaid fantasies, and mine all came true when I was also gifted the Treasure Within Brooch, which has been redone with bubble gum pink, pastel blue and a pearl surprise, the Saltwater Wisdom Stud Earrings and matching head scarf. I teamed the whole collection with adorable Mermaid Tee from Vinnie Boy Vintage which was the perfect finishing touch.

    So I know isolation has been hard on all of us, but this amazing collection will be sure to brighten your day. Supporting our local online businesses is even more important right now. Every purchase big or small keeps us going and the gorgeous bunch of bodies that run Erstwilder give so much back to the community. I've had my eye set on a few other pieces and can't wait to receive those too.

    I hope you enjoyed my At Home Selfie Series, there will more than likely be many more to come.

    Take care and stay safe!

    March Cherry Doll!

    Please welcome my very first Cherry Doll for the month of March - Miss Vintage Orchid!

    This lovely lady is not only a VIP customer but a beautiful soul inside and out. I feel so proud to be a part of her pinup journey and I can't wait for you all to learn more about her. Miss Vintage Orchid is a huge supporter of not only my business but many other Aussie small businesses. She embodies what Cherry La Blaze is all about and that is a love for all things 50's, positivity, self love, body confidence, supporting women and pinups in their own journeys and following your dreams. This is a way for me to give back to my amazing customers, so I hope you have a read and love it as much as me.

    Interview -

    1. Who are you and what is your pinup persona?

    Sheereen (Reenie) / Miss Vintage Orchid (The bubbly pinup) 😄🌺


    2. Where are you from?

    Singapore 🇸🇬 hence the Pinup name - The Orchid is the national flower of Singapore 😊


    3. What do you love about pinup?

    The positive love & respect for the female beauty. I love the fact that it promotes positive body image for ladies of any size & shape and diversity. It encourages and promotes self-love & acceptance for one's self & most importantly the confidence within 🌟


    4. How did you find out about Cherry La Blaze Vintage and Rockabilly?

    When I first started Pinup in August 2018 I went into it full force - go hard or go home right? Thank god for Afterpay! 🙊 Lol I googled for stores that I can start up my Pinup wardrobe from and your beautiful store came up as a recommendation. I bought a few of my first ever Pinup outfits & accessories from you then and I've been coming back often since 😄💜


    5. What is your favorite product that you have purchased from our store so far?

    Hard to pick! I love them all! If I have to pick just the one it'll have to be the Banned Red heart basket handbag - I've worn that bag a lot ♥️


    6. What do you do for work?

    I'm a freelance makeup artist (although I'm not doing that much now because I'm so busy with Pinup 😆). I mainly work full time as a Motor Claims Case manager for a large insurance company doing the 9 to 5 🚗  Love the fact that I can still dress Pinup into work every day! 😄


    7. What/who inspires you and your personal style?

    Amanda - Modern "June" Cleaver & my Pinup bestie Miss Mon Mon ♥️ I love the quirky bright retro colours that Amanda brings into her style & I love the way Mon picks & wears true vintage so beautifully - she has great taste in stuff lol ♥️


    8. Sweet or savory?

    Hmmmm... some days sweet but most days savoury. Can I say both?? Hehe 😬


    9. Favorite quote/advice and why.

    I love positive quotes and words of inspiration as I use them daily as affirmations. I do a lot of #quoteoftheday posts on my Instagram profile under my photos. It's hard to choose but if I have to pick one it'll have to be, "Have Courage and be kind" by one of my favourite Disney movies - Cinderella 👑 

    The quote has great meaning and no it isn't just some corny quote from a kid's movie lol Here's why - Kindness helps you to love and appreciate others, even when they don't act in a way that deserves kindness back. Courage helps you live with integrity at all times - Integrity is very important to me. We need to have both of these in our lives and often times we need them both at the same time. It can sometimes take courage to treat someone kindly especially when that someone hurts you.  It will also take great courage to know when to walk away from situations or people that are negative and bad for you. And of course it will take lots of kindness to forgive and walk away without hate. From there courage comes back into the mix to help one to continue moving forward - onward and upwards ♥️ 


    10. Anything else you would love to share?

    Yes - I'd like to firstly thank you Miss Cherry La Blaze for inviting me to do this as the first ever Cherry Doll to be interviewed. It's such an honour to be participating in this. I'm very lucky to be involved in a great community that is super supportive - a place that allows us to do fun things like this and to grow and develop to be the best Pinup we can be. I've learnt so much since starting my journey and I've come so far since then. My sincerest thanks to everyone who have showed me support and taught me well. You've all played a very important part in my journey and I will forever be grateful to all of you. With that - "A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality."—Yoko Ono 💗

    Walking In Charlie Stone Shoes!

    Walking In Charlie Stone Shoes!

    Have you walked in Charlie Stone shoes?

    Well let me tell you something, you are missing out if you haven't!

    Charlie Stone Shoes was created by Sydney local Samantha Szetu in 2014

    Unique features include.

    • Unique flat design with hidden elevation for better arch, ankle and knee support
    • Custom cushioned insole
    • Soft genuine leather upper and lining
    • Flexible and durable bottom soles for prolonged wear
    • Comfortably positioned low ankle straps

    I was super honored to be contacted by Samantha to collaborate with her and her amazing Aussie brand. I love supporting Australian made so I couldn't wait to try her amazing shoes. I was lucky enough to receive the Portofino style in red/white which were super easy to style. I did misjudge my size, however Samantha being the amazing boss babe she is sent me the next size down and boy did they fit like a glove. I also have sensitive feet and to be honest I find it extremely hard to get good quality pinup/vintage style flats that don't damage my feet. But after wearing these all day walking around The Entrance on the Central Coast I was pleasantly surprised how my tootsies held up.

    There are a range of styles and colour combos to suit any outfit and they have just released a new vegan range which is super exciting.

    Something special is in the works so keep your eyes peeled and trust me go and get yourself a pair.

    Thank you Samantha I look forward to working with you in the future.

    This raffle was created in collaboration with some extremely well know Aussie small businesses that trade online. These include Sarsparilly, Lana-Rose Fashion, Martinis and Slippers and Bonsai Kitten just to name a few. I really wanted to help promote other businesses like my own and I wanted the vouchers and prizes to be accessible to ticket holders both nationally and internationally.

I have chosen to raise money for RizeUp Australia, which is an organization that directly helps survivors of Domestic Violence. So all of the proceeds will go directly to RizeUp to help them to continue their work by providing survivors with emergency accommodation, furniture, white goods, clothing, food vouchers and all the basic necessities a survivor needs to start over.

    Tickets will go on sale from the 26th of July until the 24th of October with one lucky winner to be announced on the 25th. The tickets will cost $10 each or 3 for $25. The tickets will be available to purchase through my Everyday Hero website via this link https://give.everydayhero.com/au/cherry-la-blaze-for-pinup-doll-australia

    Barbara La Blaze is a 50's bombshell pinup brooch inspired by survivors of domestic violence. Barbara La Blaze is a mother, a friend, a wife, a strong independent women that has a heart of gold. She embodies her own classic style, she is a lover of the 1940's and 1950's but also loves a rockabilly edge. She is a survivor not a victim! She uses her past experiences to empower her future and drive her to reach her goals and reach her dreams both professional and personal. Barbara La Blaze is a symbol of strength for those affected by Domestic Violence.

    This amazing brooch will be available for preorder from the 26th of July and there will be approximately a 3 week turn around time for deliveries.
