Because it’s Tuesday…

I am approached quite often asking “Are you in a play?” or “Why are you so dressed up”? Normally my answer to the latter is “Because its (insert day of the week)!” I mean what better reason is there really?
I was raised by a fabulous mother who instilled in me at an early age how important it was to always put your best face forward. My mother donned beautiful frocks, fantastic wigs and hair pieces, false eyelashes and always put “her face on” everyday. For me this was normal and I loved it, she was the epitome of Everyday Glamour. Later in life she came to spend a lot of time in the theater as a singer and actress. She was very talented and surrounded herself with some of the most amazing and fabulous people. I am so grateful to have been exposed to this glamour at such an early age.
This is partly what I attribute my “affliction” of chronic overdressing to, the other is my deep passion for fashion, makeup, beauty and a simple admiration of men and women who take care and effort in their appearance. I admire the fashions of the eras between 1920 and 1950 and dress in “vintage style” every day. I put that in quotations, simply because I do not strictly wear vintage. As being a woman of the curvy persuasion I find it difficult to find true vintage fashion that fits me. So I fashion modern and reproductions pieces to suit my vintage sensibilities.
I style my hair in authentic vintage styles, I wear bright red lipstick, gloves, and hats and I always carry a parasol to protect my fair skin.
This blog is a way for me to share my passion about glamour, beauty, vintage style and fashion with anyone interested.
I hope you enjoy!
