Pinup Picnic || 4th of July with Secrets in Lace

Today is a picnic in the garden, with views of Manhattan... in lingerie!  

Looking almost like a swimsuit or playsuit, this cotton gingham set by Secrets in Lace feels very classy and authentic 40's/50's.  Drawing me outdoors, I had some fun with styling this summery set with 4th of July in mind.  Victory rolls, ruffles, bows & cherries ... the epitome of feminine & flirty!

Librarian || Marilyn Eyewear Optical

Today's aeshetic is 50's librarian meets vixen, with Marilyn Eyewear's chic opticals!  Appropriately set at historic New York Library, these glasses provided an elegant yet sassy addition to my subtly sexy, yet sophisticated ensemble.  Their square frames have a hint of cat eye, and sparkly detailed rims!  I added a pop of red lace, which is always a good idea. :)

Glamour in the Details || Wooden Element "Le Grand Sophia"

I love to wear simple, classic pieces with glamour in the details.  To me, the details and accessories are often what pack the proper punch, especially when made of high quality.  Speaking of quality, I treasure vintage gems because of the simpler world of craftsmanship that existed in those days.  Sometimes it's hard to believe anything is still made with this level of care, but every once in a while, I stumble upon others who share this passion... 

Wooden Element is a family run business who celebrates heritage and artisan skill.  Meet Le Grand Sophia, a handmade Birchwood bag with gleam of pink pigment, from the Morena Collection.  I adore the stunning geometric design crafted into this natural wood masterpiece, and the fact that each bag will be unique as each is made to order.  This elegant pale pink shade pairs beautifully with solids and neutrals, and so I styled today's look with navy & natural tones.  This allows for the textures and intricacies to be highlighted.
