One of the greatest attributes of dressing in vintage everyday, besides the exquisite garments and costume jewelry is by far the red lips – don’t you agree?
Some little girls, play with dolls and others paint their lips red, I was that girl. Today this girly pattern skirt brings back fond memories from my youth when I would apply my grandmother’s red Revlon lipstick in front of her vanity mirror. How is it in life we imagine or do one thing and it takes years, even decades for it to manifest? I suppose you would call it destiny. We never know as children where our lives will go, who we will meet or what lessons will play a part in our future. From my fascination of vintage beauty, perfume and powder puffs, who would have known I’d be thirty-seven exuding such glamour?
“Even as a child I knew I wanted, red lips & rosy cheeks”
Every action to the thoughts we think have led us to our current reality. When I look in the mirror, I still see my younger self and it warms my heart as I know a piece of my grandmother is also with me. I dedicate my sense of European style, 50’s pin curls and ravishing red lips to her, Doris Alexander. Without her, I would have never manifested what you all see today.
