Fashion Inspiration: Pinup Edition

Screen Shot 2015-07-29 at 4.53.31 PM

  Pin up girls are widely appealing to popular culture and iconic in the world of fashion, glamour and beauty. There have been many iconic pin up girls in the past that are still celebrated today such as, Marilyn Monroe, Dita Von Teese and Betty Grable. There have been many controversies in regards to pin up girls and how it is corrupting societal morality and degrading towards woman hood. However, some believe it is considered to be a positive post-Victorian rejection of bodily shame and a healthy respect for female beauty. Pinup fashion has been questioned in regards to being an actual feminist. I see how it can be difficult to rationalize loving a fashion style that came from a time where women were oppressed more so than they are today. But that’s not all true.

There are some reasons why the pin up fashion in the 50’s is actually empowering for women. It embraces all the different body types. There is not specific requirement or a standard you have to meet to be a pin up girl, enforcing a positive message that size doesn’t matter! You get to embrace your inner quirk! Pin up fashion allows women to express there own style in many ways, whether its colour, different hairstyles, tattoos or clothes pairing. There are no rules! Do what you please, In the fashion industry there are trends and styles that are considered fashion suicide or unattractive. Whoever gave them the right to decide? Like that’s not degrading to women telling them how they carry themselves or what they wear is uncouth. You know who can be and wear whatever the hell they want? The pin up fashion community, that’s who! Granted the pin up version of the 21st century has the media turning them illicit, but isn’t everything in the media illicit today? It was never portrayed that way in the early years and that’s not why we embrace it today! Another reason to embrace pin up fashion is because they encourage strength! They aren’t shy and awkward, they are ballsy, strong and can stand their own ground. Who wouldn’t want to be a supporter of that?

So can you enjoy pin up girls/fashion and be a feminist? Yes, yes you can

Celebrity Fashion Inspiration: Hollywood Glam

Hey everyone, I wanted to share some of my celebrity fashion inspirations that reflect my style and outfits that I really love. Hope you enjoy this Hollywood Glam edition!

Screen Shot 2015-02-27 at 12.34.34 AM

AnnaLynne McCord

She has been one of my fashion inspirations since 90210. I loved her style on the show as Naomi Clarke, but I like her own style much rather than Naomi Clarke.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

The Victoria Secret model looks stunning in angel wings thats for sure, but her everyday style is amazing. Always trendy and put together, I love her style and her outfits when she’s seen out never disappoints.

Rachel Bilson

I use to watch her back when she was on The O.C and now I love her even more on The Hart of Dixie. Her style on the show is always fashionable and in good taste, just like her very own style when she’s out and about running errands.

Megan Fox

I’ve always loved her style and outfits. From being comfortable, trendy and fashionable all her outfits are amazing. She has amazing taste in heels, I find myself in love with many of her stunning footwear.

Audrina Patridge

I grew up watching The Hills and I fell in love with Audrina’s style. I find that she is one of my top fashion inspiration next to her on screen good friend LC. I love her street style when she’s wearing skinny jeans/denim and loose tanks and T-shirts. If I had to choose one celebrities style, It would be her.

__________

Screen Shot 2015-02-26 at 11.59.51 PM

Lauren Conrad

The Hills being my favourite show growing up, I loved watching LC’s different styles on the show. While I enjoy Audrina’s street style, I really love Lauren Conrad’s style when it comes to more flirty and floaty feminine dresses. When I want to dress with less edge, It would definitely be her style!

__________

Hope you guys enjoyed this Celebrity fashion inspiration look book. I love the style’s of each one of these stunning ladies and find most my ideas and outfits inspired by them!

Enjoy. xx

HIT or MISS: Provocalips 16HR Kissproof Lip Colour

Screen Shot 2015-02-26 at 9.26.38 PMRimmel London came out with a lip colour line that lasts you throughout the day! The Rimmel London Provovalips 16 HR Kissproof Lip colours come in 10 different shades. It’s a two step lip gloss that is pigmented in colour, almost like a liquid lipstick. Step 1: You apply the colour to your lips and keep the lips apart for 60 seconds to let the colour set. Step 2: You apply the top coat on to lock the colour and give it moisture to your lips.

Down below are the 10 available colours in the Provocalips 16HR Kissproof Lip Line:

Screen Shot 2015-02-26 at 9.52.13 PM

So is this product a HIT or MISS?
The packaging is really cute and it has a doe foot sponge applicator on both the ends. The product itself is runny rather than a thick consistency, so be careful. The lip colours don’t have any specific scent to them. I applied two layers of the product just to make it more pigmented, but the pigment is good overall. After applying the lip colour doing both steps, my lips weren’t dry and it went on and felt smooth on my lips. The product doesn’t make your lips feel tight and you can layer it without making your application look too thick. I tested it to see if the product would transfer but it stayed on without any transfer right after I applied it. After going about my day, several hours passing it did not smudge and the lip colour was still on my lips and did not make my lips feel dry. I didn’t have to touch up my lip colour through out the day and took it off at the end of the day with an oil based make up remover. All in all, I believe the product did what it was suppose to do and it lasted throughout the entire day. My favourite shades are Dare to Pink, Pucker Up, Play with fire and Heart Breaker.
This lip product is definitely a HIT ladies! If your looking for a drug store brand lippy that lasts all day, this would be it!

Enjoy! xx

50 shades of Grey: O.P.I Collection

Screen Shot 2015-02-19 at 3.38.32 PM

More like three shades of grey, two silver tones and one red. Yeah… It’s ranked the #1 movie right now, of course it would have it’s own limited edition nail polish line. The movie has gotten a lot of buzz in the media and everyone is going 50 kinds of crazy about it. But I have to say, the colours in the O.P.I nail polish line of 50 shades of grey are pretty amazing. All six colours are my style and are in trend right now.

Screen Shot 2015-02-19 at 3.29.54 PM

O.P.I is my all time favourite nail polish brand, the quality of it is amazing, I find it is easier to put on the other brands and has great consistency. I would recommend O.P.I hands down as the best. Down below is a better look at all six colours in the line.
