Danger De Lux & Rowena present accessories for the holidays

No holiday ensemble is complete without the right accessories….from hair flowers and fasinators to handbags and heels.

Rowena always has the best and biggest selection of handbags and what I have here is only a tiny piece of the selection available in store and online.

Sourpuss has come out with some adorable handbags, which retail at amazingly low prices! These are in their Bettie Page line so are extra glam!

These handbags come in: black, gold, oxblood, and bubblegum pink and in two sizes!

You can’t see it in the photo below but there are copper flecks in the black, which makes this retro handbag even more delicious!

Lux De Ville has come out with limited edition flame diablo darling clutches which I can not get enough of. These clutches are the perfect size too- big enough to fit more than just your lipstick and phone, but still compact enough to not take up too much room; the handle is a great size too and actually functional.If you have your eye on one of these, snatch it up quick, because they are  limited addition. You can find them in the store or for phone order.

A shop favorite is always Sweet Romance. The gorgeous pieces below are just dripping with vintage inspiration and I find them to be just darling.

A day out with Sourpuss

It was a beautiful day out and after a big run, all I wanted was to spend even more time outside soaking up the sun. It was the perfect day to head down to Fort Edmonton Park- a step back in time! I wanted to wear something cute and light, so of course I wore my Floozy dress from Sourpuss Clothing.

The first stop in the fort in The Midway Park, which I absolutely love! In fact I was thinking what a great place it would be to have a wedding ( I’m not getting married…yet). There was a Ferris Wheel, a lovely carousal, and a bunch of old fashioned midway games!

Everyone who works at Fort Edmonton Park are dressed for the era they are working in and are in character the whole time. One gal told me I looked very pretty, but next time I wear a short dress, I should be wearing stockings! It was quite cute.

The Floozy dress is comfortable, but still cute, which is what I want in a little day dress. The dress comes with the red belt shown, which I love – I think polka dots and red are like chocolate and peanut butter. I wore a little anchor necklace, which matched the colors of the dress, and a couple little black roses in my hair.

fort edm park 018I love old signs like these ones! I had to snap a photo in front of the Coca Cola billboard – I thought it was a great pair with my dress, don’t you?!

Like the previous Sourpuss dresses I have reviewed, this one is a medium. It fits good, just like it should. My measurements are: 36-29-40. This little dress is such a good summer frock, especially when it is priced so reasonably. Check out Rowena or RetroGlam.com to find the Floozy and other sweet summer dresses from Sourpuss Clothing

Sourpuss makes great little pinup dresses, that are so affordable but still good quality. I always feel cute when I am wearing one of their dresses! I have one more little Sourpuss dress to review, so keep an eye out for that! In the meantime, follow me on:

the Gil by Sourpuss Clothing

I had mentioned in a previous post I had four Sourpuss dresses I wanted to share and review. The first was the Pillaging Puppies Rizzo dress, and the second is the Gil. The Gil has this new age spacey look, mixed with retro stewardess – it is nothing like anything else I own.

The Gil is super fun and flirty, with red piping, cute princess-type cap sleeves, and a sassy cut out on the front. A co-worker and I wore the Gil to the Alberta Bound Tattoo Convention, where we worked the Rowena booth. We got so many compliments on our outfits and a handful of people who wanted our photos.

tattoo convention 005We wanted to make our outfits extra special by making some giant hair flowers, so we went to the craft store, loaded up on flowers, and went to town.

2014-05-31 01.06.01 (2)2014-05-31 01.01.37 (2)We wore these dresses all night and they were so comfortable. I felt so fun and pretty. This is a great little dress, which can be super casual when worn with flats and a pony tail, or more formal with heels and some fancy hair. The Gil has a cute retro costume feel to it, but don’t let that deter you, instead let that be the reason you get it! It is so much fun!

tattoo convention 004I’m wearing a medium in the Gil and it fits to a ‘t’. My measurements are:

36-29-40

Sandra is wearing a large, which fit her perfectly as well. Her measurements are:

38-31-41.5

Get your hands on one of these dresses while you still can, because I don’t anticipate them lasting long. This dress is an absolute steal at $57- it is the perfect addition to any pinup gals wardbrobe. Head down to Rowena or RetroGlam.com to get one for yourself

the alberta bound tattoo convention

This past weekend was the Alberta Bound Tattoo Convention. Because the shop I work at is pretty cool, we had a booth at the convention to advertise all the wicked clothes we sell and also sell some of those wicked clothes. I had the fortune ( or misfortune…) of setting up, tearing down, and running the rodeo! But the best part of it was getting all dolled up with the other gals from the shop and showing off all the pin up dresses we sell at Rowena! I made sure to get lots of photos to show you our fancy outfits.

Each day, me and the other gal(s) wore matching outfits, had our hair done up and big smiles on our faces. So lets get to it…

Day 1: Friday night was “Adults Night”. A bunch of burlesque performers put on a show -most notably the gorgeous Ophelia Overdose performed two fantastic numbers.

My gal pal and I wore the Gil by Sourpuss. We also made some pretty wicked hair flowers to match our dresses. I don’t want to go too much in to detail about this lil number, because I want to review it for you all later.

I snapped a few photos of Ophelia too…

Day 2:  Saturday, the day that would not end…. this was the longest day, coming in at 10 hours ( the longest working the show…Friday was a 12 hour day). There were three of us working and we all wore the Dames Dress by Deadly Dames/Pinup Girl Clothing. For all you Cry Baby fans, this dress was based off of the one Wanda wore in the film. I found some gorgeous black orchids at the craft store, so made them in to hair flowers to wear with the Dames dress.

Day 3: The final day of the convention. We didn’t have quite matching dresses, but we both wore leopard by Pinup Girl Clothing. Mine is the leopard Heidi and Meagan wore the retro leopard Vamp. I through my hair up in a PUG nylon scarf and it was a mess from the other two days; I’m really into that whole mini beehive I mentioned in a previous post.

10373947_10152239038588224_2104106952553043253_nIt was fun to see all the different artists and performers, even if the days were long. It was also nice to get out of the shop for the weekend- a change of scenery is always good. After three very long days, I am left exhausted, but at least I got to get dressed up, meet some nice people, and let every one know about the best pin-up shop in Alberta…Rowena of course!

what i wore: trailer Park dress

Now that spring is actually on the way and the snow is melting, I can finally wear cute dresses again! Seriously, winter has lasted forever this year! I’ve been forced to wear boots and leggings for the past 6 months, and not that there is anything wrong with that, but it gets boring! I actually had some time today to take some photos of what I wore to work…. I bought this dress in December to wear in Hawaii but I never ended up wearing it. Seeing as it was easter and sunny out, I thought this little pink trailer park theme dress would be perfect…

FLAMINGO DRESS 007

Shown here with my favorite stuffed flamingo, this is the sweetest lil sourpuss dress I have seen. It is patterned with trailers, bows, martinis, starbursts, and of course flamingos! I got mine at Rowena and I know for a fact they still have some. This is the most perfect little summer dress! You can have a peak at RetroGlam too and see what fun summer dresses they have!

FLAMINGO DRESS 004

FLAMINGO DRESS 002

I don’t usually wear colour, and if I do, never pink… but i couldn’t help myself, this dress was just too adorable! Hopefully spring decides to stick around for good, because I could sure use some sunshine and warmth. I don’t think I was meant to love somewhere so cold… so if anyone in the warmer parts of the world wants to adopt me, just let me know! I’m a pretty good cook too!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend and that the Easter Bunny was good to you
