    Miss Candyfloss In High Heels AW20-21 Collection

    Miss Candyfloss In High Heels AW20-21 Collection

    “You meet a girl. Maybe she’s pretty, maybe she’s smart, maybe she’s funny. Maybe your parents like her. Maybe you get really lucky, and she’s one or two of those things. I got ’em all. That’s a lot.”
    -Midge 
    The Miss Candyfloss In High Heels Collection draws inspiration from the hit TV-show The Marvelous Mrs Maisel.
    Protagonist Midge Maisel is a smart and quick-witted woman, who also happens to express her attitude to life through her impeccable wardrobe, which I'm sure many of us can relate too.
    This collection has it all! Full of elegant Upper East Side housewife ensembles, warm and comfortable work dresses, off duty knit sweaters, swing skirts and cigarette trousers. And, of course the ultimate black dress. They also nailed the bold, unusual 50's colour combinations that feature in the show. From Kelly green, royal blue, bright teal, burgundy and mustard yellow there is sure to be a colour combo that will take your fancy, or will have you questioning whether these colours will suit you. Rest assured bright and bold is the new fashion trend, so step out of your comfort zone, or should I say colour zone!
    This is one of their largest collections, so as you can imagine it is very hard to choose a favourite piece. Living in Melbourne Victoria where we are about to head into Spring so the ever so stunning Felicienne Dress caught my eye immediately. A comfortable day dress that allows you to add a touch of late 40's flare to your wardrobe.

    It breathes feminine elegance and beauty, while its simplicity is giving you an absolute stylish feeling. 

    Sizes are very limited now and I currently only have two left in store. So hop to it kittens and don't miss out on this beauty.

     

     

    Belle Poque Collaboration

    Belle Poque Collaboration

    Earlier this month I was contacted by the fabulous team at Belle Poque. Belle Poque was created in 2015 and is an independent brand recreating vintage inspired clothing. They aim to provide customers with high quality garments at competitive prices with excellent customer service.

    https://www.bellepoque.com/

    I was lucky enough to receive two items in my package. The first and my absolute favourite was the Women's Cherry Cropped Cardigan.

    Made from 55%Viscose+40%Polyamide+5%Spandex giving a nice amount of stretch, with 3/4 sleeves and covered in delightful embroided cherries.

    Perfect to layer in the cooler months and your go to in the warmer months to pin over your shoulders. Now you all know me and how much I love 1950's diners, so it was only fitting to take this little cutie to Happy Days Donuts for a milkshake with Brookleigh Photography and my Care Bear of course!

    The second item I received was the 1950's Vintage Sleeveless V-Neck Flared A-Line Dress. Which is a very versatile black dress featuring a vibrant floral swan print along the hemline.

    Made from 95%Cotton+5%Spandex with a nice amount of stretch, matching removable belt and a ruched bust to give you a very flattering shape and if your like me and you have a small bust this is perfect for you.

     I felt extremely comfortable in this dress and I was happy with the fit, plus coming with a matching belt made my heart sing. I would not wear a petticoat under this as it is an A-Line dress, but you can certainly mix and match different coloured accessories depending on your mood. I chose a pop of yellow on this occasion teamed with my New York Luxe Charlie Stone heels.

    After taking these babies for a spin I was really happy with the style, fit and quality for the price. I received my package very quickly and the team at Belle Poque were fabulous. They do have some super cute combos currently in their online store, so go and check them out.

    DRESSLILY COLLABORATION

    DRESSLILY COLLABORATION

    I was recently contacted by Dresslily to not only try some of their super cute 50's inspired dresses but to also do a live review on their Face Book page!

    I jumped at the opportunity straight away because they really do have some adorable vintage inspired items that won't break your budget and because I love trying new things and going live is something I have never done.

    So after a few issues with my kiddies and some technical updates we are now set for the live review later this week. I will be announcing the day and time in the next couple of days so stay tuned and make sure you are following the Dresslily Face Book page below.

    https://www.facebook.com/Dresslily/

    I was lucky enough to receive four different vintage inspired dresses, one being classic 50's, rockabilly/diner style, tiki and a floral piece for the cooler months. I wanted to show the wide variety of styles that are available from Dresslily. I have to admit I do have a favourite! Which is the Retro Gingham Bow Knot Flare Dress pictured below which screams classic 50's housewife. However all in all I do love every one of them for different reasons which I will go into more depth in the live review.

    If you are a pinup on a budget and you are looking for some vintage inspired dresses then I recommend giving this brand a go. I was really happy with all of the dresses I received, they were all stretchy and super comfy and would love to try some of their themed dresses too.

    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 💗
