Good day everyone! I'm a busy little bee today putting together the last minute preparations for my fun photoshoot tomorrow with Renee Ricket Photography. I'm also getting ready to attend Alfie Jean's Pinup Charm School and shoot in the "kitchen disaster scene" with Put A Smile In It Photography on Saturday! Lots of new photos and product reviews coming!! It's been an absolutely beautiful summer here in Michigan. These hot, sunny days are ideal to go to the beach, I really enjoy swimming and walking the shores of the many inland lakes here in Michigan. We are lucky to live in a state that is rich in natural beauty, full of interesting plant and wildlife as well with being surrounded by the majestic Great Lakes, vast inland seas that hold over 20% of the fresh water in the world. This week's Wishful Wednesday is inspired by my lifelong love of the water, long days spent at the beach, an enchanted and peaceful place where time seems to stand still. A beautiful daydream of underwater kingdoms and magical mermaids.
I have just begun my love affair with Pinup Girl Clothing in earnest with my first purchase, although I've been a fan for years. I'm thrilled with the cut, quality and beauty of my Ella dress. I have a wishlist of Pinup Girl styles a mile long. This week, I chose the lovely Lydia Dress in Mermaid Border Print. Made of cotton sateen, Lydia has a flattering gathered twist bust, adjustable straps that criss-cross at the back, contrast belt at the waist and a gathered full skirt in whimsical bubbly mermaid print. The Mermaid Border print, whichis designed by Stephanie Buscema, exclusively for Pinup Girl Clothing is unique, kitschy and delightful. The combination of black with vibrant, feminine lilac is an eye catching contrast. I would wear this gorgeous dress with the lovely Lilac Malco Modes Jennifer Petticoat which matches perfectly!
I adore this combo as is, but adding fun accessories is half the fun of putting together an outfit!
I recently discovered Tangerine Menagerie on Instagram and was immediately drawn to their fanciful brooch designs. I would wear the Pinup Mermaid Neverland Mermaid Lagoon Brooch. An adorable Neverland style redheaded pinup mermaid coyly cocks her shoulder and flips her aqua tail from her perch upon your shoulder. I love their entire range of Disney inspired designs!
The Meteor Jewelry Company Tahitian Earrings in Lavender are another gorgeous accessory perfect for this ensemble. Golden seashells with lavender lining each hold three delicate pearls inside. A beautiful addition to your vintage style wardrobe, I love the authentic mid century feel of Meteor Jewelry Company's selection.
The Pearl of the Sea Mermaid Clutch from The Oblong Box Shop is a treasure indeed. This adorable 6 inch round clutch is a rare white pearl with gold accents and a black satin lining. One great feature are the golden chain straps, one is shoulder length and another shorter strap is included for use as a wristlet, giving great versatility to this interesting figural clutch. This pearl is sure to draw the envious stares of all the other mermaidens!!!
Last but certainly not least are these dreamy Lollipop Lorelei Shell Peeptoe Platforms in Pink by Iron Fist. These bubbly pink platform heels feature hologram shell applique at the toe, cute mermaid, bubble and fish print along with seashell heel detail. These heels finish our outfit off in head to toe mermaid fashion!
