Pantaloon Party

Hello my little fashion kittens,

Today I am thrilled to be wearing another Emily Cremona piece - pantaloons no less! Now THAT is vintage-chic darlings. I resisted an almost overpowering urge to style them up with a parrot and hook-hand and instead went for these three looks. I collaborated again with my wonderful photographer Denton Taylor. It's good to be back Denton even though you drive me crazy ;) Here it is #threewaystowear 

#1 Wear with an elegant and simple striped top and cinch in the waist with a belt. Add a touch of flair with some leopard print booties. Finding some bonkers places to pose in this outfit gets you extra points - see below.

#2 Okay, time for a little glamour here. Wear with a vintage floral blouse, accessorizing with gold accents. Throw on the Louboutins and you're all set. Not ideal for walking around central park, but lord knows I love a challenge.

#3 Regular readers of this blog will know my love for Norma Desmond and other old, slightly demented, movie stars. You too can sport this look, dear fashionistas! Turban or headscarf - check. Fur collared jacket - check. Oversized sunglasses that are so dark they make you walk into glass doors at delis - check.

That's it for this week darling readers. More fun and fashion coming up on Tuesday. Big thanks to Deena of Emily Cremona and my doll Denton Taylor. 

Oh and just in case you thought I could resist.....

Keeping it classy.....

Love,

Ruthie Darling xoxo 

Goth Girl

Hello Darlings,

Today on the blog we are having a little #threewaystowear fun. I found this Victoriana-style sheer dress in the sale at H&M.  Victoriana is a look that is definitely in this season. See this article from Fashionista on the subject. 

Here it is. Enjoy darlings!

#1 Wear over black skinnys with gold accesories. Stand by graffiti for extra street-cool

#2 Dress down the look with a sweet grey sweater and some leopard print boots. Adding the blue jeans underneath makes them stand out more against the sheet fabric

#3 For a more glamourous look add last year's bodycon skirt over the top of the dress. The skirt has a corset type effect, leaving the fabric to billow out at the bottom. 

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....
