Other than vacuuming while wearing a wedding dress and drinking wine (like I admitted to doing), do you ever play dress up? I use the word play loosely because it’s not so much about playing, it’s more about just feeling good about yourself. Life sometimes gets in the way of looking pretty during the week and on the weekends, all you want to do it paint your nails, blow dry your hair, and just put on a damn good outfit. Me too! I’ll be the first one to admit that vintage can be hard to wear without looking like you’re straight out of the 50s, 60s, and 70s, and that’s why I reserved this outfit to the confines of my apartment – Chateau Madalynne. These pieces, a vintage nightgown and a lace body suit, are from my favorite sponsors this month – Back In Style and Ines Perpina. Back In Style is a vintage store based out of South Florida and they have loaned clothes to me for some of my photo shoots. They have an online shop full of awesome vintage pieces for very reasonable prices. Ines Perpina is an Etsy shop based out of The Netherlands with handmade bras, undies, and bodysuits. Bodysuits have been on Amy and my mind recently so when I found Ines and her shop while browsing Etsy, I had to introduce myself and see if we could collaborate in some way. She even has a velvet bra!
So one Saturday, when I had a particular rough week, I blow dried my hair, did my nails, and spent the afternoon dilly-dallying around my apartment wearing this. It was ridiculous but just what I needed. Oona might say that the only thing missing is a drink in my hand, preferably wine, but I think the only thing missing is a duster and kitten heels (with little pom poms too!). Oooh, how French – how absurd!
