Grayson Clothing - Part One

Hello Fashionistas,

Today I am very excited to share with you my collaboration with the new clothing brand 

Grayson

. They specialise in junior (stop laughing bitches) fashions at awesome prices. 

Last week I was lucky enough to receive two items from their current collection. Here is the first: a sweet, striped, cropped top - showcased here in my #threewaystowear

My model today is the actress Catharine League, who played Fredrika in 'A Little Night Music' with me in Palm Beach. Catharine is currently working at Disney World playing Ariel in the Little Mermaid. She is also a figure-skating-diva. Check out her video at the end of this post.

Here she is, enjoy darlings! Oh and check out Friday's post to see the other item they sent me, modeled by another actress from the show, Cristina Flores.

#1 Wear with a vintage petticoat. (Gone-With-The-Wind-chic?) The black booties give it a more modern feel 

"Flatley my dear, I don't riverdance"

#2 For a forties nod, wear with high waisted linen trousers and an adorable headscarf. Catharine The Riveter

 ladies and gentlemen:

#3 For a more elegant look, wear with a satin wrap-around skirt and the obligatory Louboutins. Accesorise with palm trees, natch.

A big Thank You to Grayson Clothing and Catharine my model.

Palm Beach Vintage Adventures

Hello Fashionistas,

Happy Friday darlings. Today on the blog I have a special guest, my cast-mate from 'A Little Night Music', 

Brittany Baratz

. Brittany is the fabulous high soprano of our show and could be described as Joan Collins meets a Jewish grandma:  glamourous, always ready with a zinger and often providing the dressing room with sage words of wisdom. Check out her

website

to learn more about her talents and to see some video of her in action. 

As I continue to raid the costume department here at the theatre, I am finding some fabulous, and very Palm Beachy, gems. Here is Brittany modeling some of these vintage treasures. 

#1 Check out this awesome 1960's dress, worn with a turban and huge sunglasses....poolside naturally....

#2 This fabulous jacket is a old-lady statement piece of it's own. It's tropical print contains flowers and birds and is perfect thrown of jeans and a t-shirt for a more modern look 

#3 In case you were missing me readers, here I am up a tree (where else?) wearing a gorgeous skirt taken from a recent Le Liaisons Dangereuses

 production and worn with a crop top and sneakers

My thanks to darling Brittany for being such a fab model.

Oh and in case you thought I had made it through a photo shoot without doing something ridiculous, here is a photo of me falling out of the tree....

Keeping it classy 

Bathing Belle (Turb Your Enthusiasm)

Happy Friday Fashionistas,

It's another beautiful day down here in West Palm Beach, Florida. 

My raiding of the theatre's wardrobe department is still going strong, so please enjoy this vintage turban which I am wearing poolside. I paired the darling hat with a cute Primarni swimming costume and some Louboutins - natch.

I'm well on the way to be mistaken for a native, just need to work on my tan....er, that might take a while......

Love to you all,

Ruthie Darling xoxo

Swimsuit is from Primark (last summer), here are some similar suits:

Opening Night

Happy Friday Fashionistas,

It's opening night down here in West Palm Beach! I am absolutely thrilled to be playing every acerbic-witted actress' dream role of Charlotte. #typecastandlovingit

One of the most marvelous things about working in theatres around the country for a fashion blogger can be summed up in two words: COSTUME SHOP. Endless racks of vintage clothing and costumes just dying to be taken out into the street for a fashion shoot. 

Over the next few posts I will showcase some of the delicious discoveries I have made whilst ransacking the wardrobe department at the Palm Beach Dramaworks. Shoutout to Wardrobe Mistress Linda Shorrock who is currently tied up in a storage closet.

First, a little 70's action. Cute, but **be warned** polyester and the Florida heat do not mix well. I smell great right now.

RD xoxo
