My Wet Set and the Science Behind It

My Wet Set and the Science Behind It

Here I show you step-by-step how I do my wet set using sponge rollers. I also go in-depth into the science behind a wet set and how it works to create a good strong curl that can last for a week (or longer). I offer you lots of tips and tricks that I’ve learned over the last 25+ years of styling my hair in vintage styles.

My Vintage Journey

My Vintage Journey

Here’s the story of how I got into vintage fashion. It’s an almost 30 year journey and I hope that it will continue on for many more years to come.

Beach Pajamas by the Poolside

Beach Pajamas by the Poolside

I have been in love with 1930s beach pajamas for many years now, but I always worried that the silhouette would just make me look huge! I’ve poured over photos of ladies lounging on the beach in these ultra comfortable and baggy garments, dreaming of the day that I might be able to wear something similar.

Well you know what??? I’ve got the body I’ve got, so who’s to say now is not the perfect time to wear a garment that I adore. While these are not exactly 1930s beach pajamas,...

My At Home Salon Experience

My At Home Salon Experience

This pandemic has put a halt to a lot of beauty services that I would normally be looking forward to getting. As an esthetician, I am fortunate that I’m able to do a lot of my own beauty routines myself. I wax and tint my own brows, I give myself facials on a regular basis, and I do my own gel manicures and pedicures. But to get that feeling of a fresh haircut and color, I would normally enjoy going to the salon. I suppose we just need to get...

The Lovely Lawn Party Dress ~ Emmy Designs Collaboration

The Lovely Lawn Party Dress ~ Emmy Designs Collaboration

Fashions from the 1930s are by far my favorites. There is something so simple yet glamorous and about the details and silhouettes of the 1930s. However, as a curvy woman, I’ve struggled with finding garments that incorporate those luscious silhouettes AND flatter my body.

Emmy Designs has once again created a stunning dress with thoughtful 1930s elements, suitable for any size. I typically wear a size US 20/UK 22/EU 50 in dresses, and this dress in size EU 50/52 fits me perfectly. The fact that Emmy Designs even offers...

Searching for My Joy

Searching for My Joy

Boy, have these last few months been rough! As public as I am with my photos and sharing aspects of my life on social media, emotionally, I’m actually quite a private person. I rarely share the negative aspects of my life (with anyone really) unless I can also share how I overcame them. And since that has not happened quite yet, I’ve not felt comfortable discussing my feelings, not even to my friends. I’m under no illusion that my difficulties or feelings are unique to me or, in fact, even...
