    Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth With The sugar Rush Collection

    Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth With The sugar Rush Collection

    I can't tell you how excited I am to be one of the first stockists of the new ready made collection from vintage reproduction extraordinaire Sarsparilly!

    The Sugar Rush Collection is officially live and available for pre-order and it is to die for. You can now pay 50% off the full price and then the remaining amount when your order arrives in early March.

    Not only are the designs delightful but the prints are absolutely scrumptious. The name speaks for itself and is made up of 25 separate pieces that can be mixed and matched with each other. If you love pastels you will fall in love with every item. The range is made up of three base colours which are pink, yellow or blue. In true Sarparilly style there are also some amazing novelty prints that are reminiscent of Maria's childhood such as ice-cream trucks and ice-cream parties.

    Every single design is flattering to the female figure and with the extensive size range of XXS - 5XL the entire range suits petite to plus size. Super durable and made from high quality fabric each garment is so comfortable and will be sure to last you a lifetime.

    Of course I organized a huge collaboration to celebrate the release and I was lucky enough to model some of the collection myself. I love collaborating and helping other like minded individuals build their business. So I called upon my insanely talented bestie Mrs Penny who has just launched her new and exciting business to be the photographer. We have so much fun together and I knew when I saw the range that this would be perfect for her.

    We also were lucky enough to have access to Pearl.

    A 57 Chev that is every car enthusiasts dream. Owner Wendy allowed us to cruise around town and for me to lie all over her pride and joy which made me feel like I was truly back in the 50's.

    We are super excited to share the images with you and I also attached the Stockist Spotlight from the Sarsparilly website which is about me and my store so you can have a read of that too.

    I also have to thank Maria for allowing me to model her new range, Hailey { Mrs Penny } for taking these amazing images in 38 degrees and to Wendy for allowing us to enjoy Pearl and for being so kind and helpful on the day.

    I couldn't have pulled it off without any of you and I hope we can work together again soon.

    Stockist Spotlight

    We are so excited to be introducing our new Stockists for our Sugar Rush range.  This is the first time we have had stockists for any of our clothing and we are pumped!

    The first shop we'd like to spotlight is a lovely online store based in Victoria, Australia and run by pinup Queen, Lea (A.K.A. Cherry La Blaze herself!).  We asked her some questions so you could all get to know her.

     

     

    Tell us about Cherry La Blaze, where are you located and how did you start? 

    Cherry La Blaze Vintage and Rockabilly started in March 2017. It is an online based store that I run from home from King Lake Victoria which is above the Yarra Valley. My hubby and I sold our previous business and he said to me stuff it follow your dream and do what you have always wanted to. So I did!

     

    Tell us about your team, we want to know you :)

    My team consists of me, myself and I on a daily basis. I run my website, pack orders, do all my advertising and promotional work and ordering for my website. I'm also really passionate about and love pinup/vintage modeling and love collaborating with other enthusiasts to promote my brand and theirs. I also have a pop up shop that I take to vintage and rockabilly festivals which involves the whole family. Hubby drives the bus and the kids help set up, its definitely a team effort.

     

    What is the best thing about owning your own store?

    There are so many things! I love the freedom and creativity it provides me.  It allows me to push myself professionally and creatively.  It makes me want to succeed more.  I learnt more in the last year than I ever have.  I have formed so many amazing relationships.  I love that it allows me to collaborate.  And it has provided me with exciting opportunities.

     

    What sort of things can we find at Cherry La Blaze?

    You can find everything 50's inspired at Cherry La Blaze. I like to think or I'm trying to provide unique labels instead of the typical pinup brands. I'm extremely passionate about supporting Aussie businesses, so I try to stock as many of those as I can. We have everything from dresses, shoes, swimwear, bags, brooches, kids clothing and cute kitschy gifts and vintage styling tools.

     

    What is your favourite piece from the Sugar Rush Collection?

    I'm a sucker for a cardigan and the Dorothy Knit is to die for, but I also LOVE the Bonnie Dress and all the prints are just delicious. I can't choose one LOL!!

     

    Favourite Candy?

    I love old classics like Redskins, Toffee Apples, Sherbet Bombs and Mates. Anything chewy and sticky!

     

    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.
