I have a serious attraction to all things retro pin up style come rockabilly. While I personally have never dabbled in personal fashion that emulates such an iconic way, I find the overall aesthetic these days completely alluring. In my hunt of all things vintage, I ran across a new crush of mine in the form of Marilee Caruso Photography, a gal who has a deep passion for all things vintage retro pin up boudoir inspired. Armed with creative inspiration of all kinds, Marilee creates her own throw back iconic sets as well as the styles that her girls rock with perfect hair & makeup that has stepped right out from the past. Whether or not this type of vintage world is your thing, you truly have to admire the superb perfection with which these iconic retro pin up boudoir shoots are served up on the most wonderfully naughty of Stepford Wife like silver platters.
Its hard not to get completely swept up in on of the bigger wedding trends right now, the ever enchanting illusion back wedding dress! There is just something about the allure of a delicate feminine back with gentle lace detailing. A crew of vendors in Albuquerque New Mexico wanted to play with these gorgeous illusion back wedding dresses and thought what could be better then to pair them with diamonds! Set upon the green grounds that is the Casa Rondeña Winery, 2 unique looks were created, each with their very own diamond accents. Whether its loosely tumbling locks finished with a diamond headpiece or a side swept braid, each shows off the beauty that is the illusion back wedding dress in its own unique way. To complete the soft and romantic styles, details like a long cape like veil was added as well as a sweet blush bouquet. The result are 2 wedding looks that are dreamy in a modern princess sort of way!

As promised only just a few days ago in our Bridal Faux Hawk Braid Wedding Hair Tutorial, a Sunday treasure awaited in the form of the full RocknRoll chic bride who has sophistication in spades! We loved the mix of a wedding hair style that struts its stuff on the edgy side, all while paired with a total package the simply radiates polished perfection at every turn. We imagined a bride who flirts with the wild side, yet has a deep passion for fashion forward edge all while done in good taste. Playing up a wonderfully romantic feminine & flirty bride, we put Laurel in jaw dropping Austin Scarlett wedding dress crafted in the most perfect shade of pink. To bridge the gap between something so soft & sweet as Austin's whimsical wedding gown married with our fauxhawk braid wedding hair, we turned up the volume in the form of accessories creating the total package. Donning details like tortoise shell earrings accented by diamond-like jewels, a heavy metal multi-chain dirty gold necklace with matching jewel like detailing finished with simple black patent pumps, we brought both worlds together in harmony. The result is a look that is polished, perfect & every bit edgy without going overboard.
