Loco Dempsey || 50's Sweater Girl with Secrets in Lace



You all know this is not the first time I've been inspired by Betty Grable, and not even the first time from the film HTMAM!  Her polished bombshell style is one that I just love, so today is all about her sweater girl look.  Thankfully, Secrets in Lace keeps us glamour girls supplied with some stunning retro-hued sweaters, like today's perfect mint shade.  Paired with shorts, this lightweight cardigan is a great option for cool summer nights (for you west-coast ladies) and on into the fall with transitional temperatures!  I'm also wearing the adorable SIL Ruffled Blouse beneath.

Summer Nights || National Caviar Day with Petrossian



Hot summer nights... to me, they evoke romance, nostalgia and a feeling like no other.  Sparkling lights, humid air, music playing, possibilities, and the desire to celebrate life.  Just like champagne, a little tin of caviar can go a long way for life's little celebrations.  I love an excuse for luxury, and this July has held a series of small personal milestones for me and my family.  My birthday was the 1st, my mom retired this month, and my husband completed the first phase of pieces for a bespoke collection he's working on.  On this beautiful evening on the pier, thick air & tropical prints are reminiscent of an evening in Hawaii - in the late 1940's.  I hope you enjoy the aesthetic we created, as we celebrate life with Petrossian caviar.  

Do you have any personal celebrations coming up?  Even if you don't, the dog days of summer are a perfect excuse for late night get-togethers, or simply to lounge in the backyard and watch the fireflies.  Either way, savory indulgences are necessary.  AND, today is National Caviar Day!  That's why I'm so excited to share that Petrossian is offering all my readers a special gift with purchase of anything on their website for the month of July!  Just use my code: RACHELANN at checkout.

Pink Morning || Daily Retro with Glammy Vanity



Feeling pink, girly & glamorous this morning, but every morning is a glammy morning now that I have my Glammy at my vanity.  Honestly, I cannot imagine how I ever lived without my Marilyn mirror.  Every day now begins with luxury & beauty.... oh, and extremely amazing lighting to do my makeup and hair.  I'm also really excited to highlight one very useful detail of the Glammy features: PLUG OUTLETS attached right to the mirror itself.  Every morning I just plug in my iPhone while I get ready, as well as all my heated hair tools.  Thanks for making me feel fun and retro every day, Glammy.  You all need to take advantage of my discount code while it's still available - see below!
