October Olive || Pinup Girl Clothing Greta Wrap Dress



Autumn green intertwines with bursts of fiery orange leaves in today's Central Park setting.  It started sprinkling while we were there, and we actually welcomed every moment of this seasonal bliss.  With foliage beneath our feet and raindrops trickling onto the opulent Bethesda fountain, it was like a poetic scene from a storybook tale.  My olive green Greta dress from Pinup Girl Clothing seemed to be made for such a place.  Her faux wrap design is flattering on every figure, and this just-released version features an adorable black pin dot detail.  Be sure to snag this perfect Fall colorway before it's gone!

Ghostly Glamour || Pinup Girl Clothing Gia Gown



"Moonlight becomes you, it goes with your hair.... you're all dressed up to go dreaming"

It's moonbeams & deco dreams today in showstopper Gia Gown by Pinup Girl Clothing.  In ghostly white, I turned 1930's opulence into a phantom-like soiree with porcelain feathers, deep plum lipstick & a pearl-adorned spider accent.  I immediately envisioned this dress at The Plaza, which still holds all the grandeur of it's early 1900's history.  Gia fits right in, with a deep v cut neckline, gathered bust, mutton sleeves & striking silhouette.  This dress would be perfect for any fancy holiday occasion, from Halloween to New Year's... but also right on to spring & summer!

Sparkling Angora || Daily Outfit with LJV



Ornate & soft, this is how a sweater girl does it!  

For a day of errands (and always room for wandering in NYC) we took some time out to visit beautiful Chinatown.  I wanted to stay warm on this particular brisk morning, comfortable enough for a simple day of errands and walking, and with glamour of course!  The solution was vintage, and my pieces from Lady Jane Vintage always meet all of these needs.  My cozy 50's sweater is made of sumptuous angora & is decorated with sparkling beads & sequins.  I added my LJV crystal earrings & crystal adorned hat to match, and another very special piece... a 1950's bag previously owned by 97-year old Doris.  You might remember her story in my post about a year ago!
