Vintage Stained Wine

Memorial Weekend. Welp. Glad its over. I have been reading my trilogy book which I will get to talking about later. I have been in love with french 50's style lately. Why you say? Mainly because I watched this pretty cool movie called W/E. Yeah, never heard of it? Thats because its indie, I think. Madonna directed it and I actually enjoyed it. The fashion was epic. Something about lace being pulled across you face and piercing blood lips and short-stocky strapped heels that strap around the ankle. I love fashion like that! I remember being young and watching the movie Josephine Baker and loving the style of that era. The movie W/E is a love story about a prince who gave up his throne to be married to this woman, and you guys...the fashion is insane... Well, at least to me. 

So I am not very french today. I know. But Its a very cute dress that fits wonderfully and kinda reminded me of the fashion in the movie W/E. And given the fact I have spiral curls bouncing in my head, I thought it would be appropriate. This dress is from Kmart. Not the Kmart in California. But the Kmart in Maryland, my home town. Yes, Rose sent me this dress via priority mail and the dress was 1.99. Yes. A dollar, ninety nine. Rose lucked out and found all these deals last month. And there was a lot of plus sizes there for a dollar! Of course I go to the Kmart around my way, in Cali, and of course...nothing. So she sent me this beautiful dress. Please check your local Kmarts people! 

Dress: Kmart
Belt: Torrid, Shoes: Steve Madden from Marshalls

Oh yeah, my hair turned out great. I will be doing that style more often! It took forever to do though. But the after look was amazing. I wish I did not take it out so soon. Love it. I wanna dye my hair again. Its been awhile, But anyway, the style was called Badu Knotts. I sure will try it again. 

Here is the sleeve. I love it. Kinda vintage if you ask me. Maybe its just me. Hell yeah, fucking right.

Here is the back, which is the coolest part of this dress if you ask me. Love the color as well.

Here is me wearing the dress, a quick shot of the back, excuse the tattoo. I got it when I was sixteen..
Thanks Mom..tee hee

The dress on hanger:

My last post someone stated that they wanted to know the make up I used on my eyes. So, here is the shadow palette I used. Its elf and it use to be my best friends. She got it for great price. 

The French Connection

Here is the movie I got super inspired with. I thought it was great. I would so dress like that right now if I could get my hands on some of those vintage dresses. Im a big fan of the hairstyles as well. I would recommend the movie. Its pretty romantic, then again, it kinda isn't. 

True story as well. Her name was Wallie. Man she was fierce. Her outfits were to die for. 
Check out her style below:

In other weekend news:
My weekend was full of reading. I finished the second book in about two days. Im super addicted to this book. And I have not been this stoked since Twilight. Is it better than Twilight? I don't know. They are very different. The book is full of erotica and sex appeal. Its hard to put the book down. I know gotta read the last book. Im gonna take my time this time. Nothing is worst than being invested in something thats about to end. 

Oh yeah!...
Holly, my awesome friend sent me these oil cleaning pads in the mail for me! What a surprise. I am the biggest Hello Kitty fan, you have no idea. Shouts out to Holly! I love them already! Thanks for having me in your thoughts mama.

 My hubby Greg over the weekend was obsessed with building stuff. So we hung up a shelf for me. Greg is the "pickle jar" kinda guy. The kind of guy who wants to pop open the pickle jar just for you. Which is pretty awesome. Thanks Greg. Tee hee..

In Boobooski News:
Well. My little one is all about standing and looking out the window and pulling on blinds. Its pretty hilarious given the fact she smiles at me when I catch her in the act. She giggles and smiles all the time. So her new kick is playing with blinds and trying to peal off the stickers thats on her wall. Greg lowered her crib, immediately...

Also, my tongue and roof of my mouth is screwed because I ate to many sunflower seeds this weekend.   Im not even big on sunflower seeds....guess I needed a fix...

~Rose The Blazing Bestie~

Rose seemed to luck out on Memorial Day sales over the weekend. I found nothing. And I was willing to drop some money on some good deals. Rose on the other hand found a lot of goodies. Here is the pictures she took

Tribal Gown

She did not buy this by the way...crazy woman

Pin Stripped Blazerz

Bangles for Days:
Love the colors scheme of this pair up. The blue is beautiful. She is gonna pair up the bracelets with the watch

And of course, what a bestie update without a pair of wedges?

Super cute.

Celebrity Candy

I think Kirsten Stewart went out and got a stylist. Because all of a sudden she dresses so fierce and edgy. But when you catch her on a candid photo, she is rocking a regular white shirt and jeans with converse. These days she is rocking nice heals and ball gowns. Keep paying that stylist girl! Her she is with Charlize Theron promoting that Snow White movie she is in. Stunning.

Kirsten Stewart

I love when she cleans up. Because when she does, its super hot and cute. And she does not even seem uncomfortable like she usually does. She looks like she owning who she is. Love the shoes she is wearing below by the way. Neon pumps? Im jealous.

Ashlee Simpson
 Already that clutch is bad ass. 

Rita Ora
 Im not a fan. I don't get her. She seems to be riding Rihanna's coat pretty hard. Yet, given the fact she is not famous-famous yet, who is paying for these outfits? Just saying..

Taylor Swift
 Taylor looking cute. 

Ashlee Greene
 If I was wealthy those boots would be mine..

Carey Mulligan
 Galaxy anything is awesome to me. Love this look because its different.

Love you guys! Thanks for reading!
