Denim Couture

The landscapes of Ireland are so fairytale!! 
Every road and path looks like an old castle road. 
On this chilly morning in Ireland I just wasn't in the mood to put on a dress. 
Being that it was the day for boots and jeans I wanted to shoot this adorable denim bustier top! 
This is one of my own designs thats available on the Shabbybabe Etsy store. 
Its a fun piece! I love anything thats denim!
I sewed this leather beret to match. 
Surprisingly the bustier top truly fit the Medieval theme of the Irish landscape. 
I needed darker makeup for the shoot too.
I don't wear darker shades of lipstick enough as I should.
As I've mentioned before,
"Violetta" by MAC is one of my most favorite darker lipsticks.
Its not too dark and not too hot pink.
I highly suggest it if your looking for something fresh and colorful for a lipstick.
Hope your enjoying the month of April as much as I am.
Theres so much more to come in May,
that I'm so excited to share with you!

A Medieval Babe

Happy Spring Loves!!! 
I know its been a while since I've posted...
I apologize for the long wait between posts...
March has been a crazy month!
I can't believe its the beginning of April already.
At the end of March I traveled to Ireland! 
Its a place I've always wanted to see.
It wasn't until I arrived that I truly realized how much history is attached to the land.
There is a ton of Medieval history! 
The small towns in Ireland still have cobble stone streets,
 and their castles still intact.
Its unbelievable to see a real life castle in person!! 
I was lucky enough to get to take a tour of "Kilkenny Castle"
I went through the dungeons, and grand halls. 
My favorite features of the castle were the gorgeous stain glass windows.
Kilkenny, Ireland has a true Medieval Gothic vibe to the city.
I dressed for the occasion. It was still a bit chilly but not cold enough I needed a winter coat.
I wore my leather biker jacket (A wardrobe essential of mine!)
My lace up leather boots,and leather skirt that I love!
I'm so glad I packed this skirt. It was so perfect for this trip!
I'm looking forward to traveling even more!!
There is nothing like traveling, bringing a piece of the culture home,
and making it apart of yours.

Retro Flare

I'm extremely picky when it comes to a fall and winter coat. 
I'm in a coat from the middle of November to the beginning of April. 
Its an item I wear everyday for almost six months of the year.. 
If I'm going to be stuck in a coat for that long I might as well have fun with it.
I'm crazy for the boldly printed retro coats from the 60s and 70s. 
Fashion was so colorful and bold back then!!
 A lot of the coats were trimmed in faux fur and flared out to A line silhouettes. 
I've always had this vintage brown plaid coat but never wore it till recently.
Its a dress coat from the 60s/70s.
 I wore it with over the knee boots from Chinese Laundry.
This coat makes an amazing statement!! 
I think I may wear it for the holidays when I'm in NYC.
I feel like a queen when I put it on. Its beautifully tailored,lined,and very warm!
Winter fashion like these coats inspires me to simply enjoy the cold weather season.
There's no reason we still can't look fabulous during the colder and shorter days of winter.

Patchwork Leather Groove


I love the vintage coats of the 60s and 70s!
The tailoring was impeccable,design lines were figure flattering,
and the creativity was limitless. 
Lately I've been into wearing trenches from the 70s.
 In a lot of the vintage coats you see patchwork leather designs,
faux fur collars,and bright neon colors.
 I was extremely lucky to find this treasure while thrifting. 
Its the most elaborately detailed leather coat I've ever seen! 
The coat has jewel toned pieces of patchwork throughout the garment. 
Reds,greens,taupe's,and black,make it so sharp! 
I don't know about you but,
 double breasted coat closures are my favorite way to button up in the winter.
Theres something about the front double breasted coat that looks sleek and military.
I think on a woman its flattering as well because it truly shows off our hour glass figures. 
This coat would be adorable with a mini dress and boots for evening!
Its a day to night piece.
I wish we could see beautiful design lines like this again.
I am forever inspired by the past.
