    March Cherry Doll!

    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 💗

    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.

    Check out her Face Book page

    And her Instagram account

    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.

    Check her out and Pearl on Face Book here

    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!

     

    Barbara La Blaze Brooch!

    Barbara La Blaze Brooch!

    The Barbara La Blaze Brooch is a fundraiser brooch that I have had made in collaboration with the amazing Danielle, Boss Babe at Daisy Jean Floral Designs as a part of my Pinup Doll Australia journey.

    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. The Barbara La Blaze Brooch is just one way that I will be raising money for RizeUp Australia and organization that directly helps survivors of Domestic Violence by providing emergency accommodation, furniture, white goods, clothing, food vouchers and all the basic necessities a survivor needs to start over. http://www.rizeup.com.au/

    The brooch will cost $45 and $25 from every sale will go directly to RizeUp and the remaining portion will go into the production costs. You will be able to purchase her via my Everyday hero website via this link https://give.everydayhero.com/au/cherry-la-blaze-for-pinup-doll-australia

    I'm super proud of this stunning brooch and I hope you can all get on board and help me raise funds and awareness for Domestic Violence.

    Product Review-Garrison Cap

    Product Review-Garrison Cap

    To be honest I have never worn a Garrison cap, and I must say I was pleasantly surprised. The Garrison Caps are handmade here in Victoria by Lenny's custom Clothing and I fell in love as soon as I put it on. I did think to myself, "How am I going to do this?" But it was really simple, it sat on my head very comfortably and the fit was amazing, I only secured it with one bobby pin. The best part is you can order any colour combination, whatever suits your frock. They are custom made to suit your dreams. Wearing one of these really takes you back in time, did you know they actually originated during WW1? The inspiration coming from the French soldiers, which was then adopted and modified over time by the U.S. Army. Now they are worn by men and women all over the world. The history behind fashion is fascinating and to see something evolve over time and still be in fashion is remarkable.

    Every Pin Up should own one of these!
