Sassy & Sexy

Taking off in the 1930s with the likes of superstars such as Jean Harlow, Mae West, Greta Garbo and Ginger Rogers, pin up girls have been a part of popular culture ever since. With the numbers of original and tasteful pin ups dwindling, we still have some modern day beauties, like Dita Von Teese keeping up the act but the less tasteful seems to be on the increase these days.
The idea of the tasteful and beautiful pin-up has become less main stream and more under culture these days, associated more with Burlesque, Rockabilly, Lolita and Gothic culture.
I wanted to tie the idea of sexy aprons in with pin-ups so today I’m featuring a bit of both. Enjoy!

Old things

I have been having a serious vintage fest lately. I’ve officially started my kitschy ceramic animal collection. Now in the collection is a cat, a pig, a deer, a squirrel and recently bought off Etsy, an adorable lamb! I can’t wait to get him. He’s coming all the way from England.

When the family is together I will take some piccies.

I have found my vintage and retro love really blossoming, I’ve been incorporating vintage bits and bobs into my aprons and purchasing more older fabrics with retro flair.

I think I have realized that there are already so many amazing things in the world and they are so much more interesting than the things your find new in shops. Vintage things hold stories and time and they are such a pleasure to find at an op-shop or market.

When I have my own house one day I want it to be filled with all kinds of old, weird and wonderful things.

I have decided to feature vintage jewelry today as I have found the most wonderful shop on Etsy called Aged and Opulent Jewelry which has a huge collection of incredible finds.
Oh, the sparkles, the glitter, the gold! Vintage jewelry really got it right.

This is such a delight with it’s green and golds.

This is so beautiful and decadent.

I adore the colors in this piece. So enchanting.

Now this one has a real fucky retro thing going on. Love it and the hot pink is wonderful.

This one really catches my eye. Fun and even a little bit kitschy.

This is stunning. The emerald and aquamarine colors go beautifully together.

This has got to be my favorite color combination. Deep pink and gold.

Your ears would truly be delighted to have these lovelies on them!

Now I’m not sure if this reminds me of showgirl feathers or a turban but it’s definetly fun and amazing.

And to top it all of check out this impressive matching collection.
