Vintage Ga!lamour

Just playing and having fun with vintage clothing.And themes-70’s;-India;-80’s;-60’s
70’s -the skirt.
India-the chiffon shirt with silver sequins.
80’s  stretch glittering tube top –part of my aerobics outfit from the late 80’s(yes,I was one of those die- hard Jane Fonda aerobics craze fans,with  made by my mom woolen!!!!knitted legwarmers!(shudder!!!) and headband to boot-and it was NOT pretty…).)
Golden stretch belt with fuschia metal hearts and sequins flowers-made by me.
60’s-knitted vintage black and silver hand bag
and the ever present vintage sunglasses-for adding more drama(or laugh)

Easybreazysm,Word of the day-Ga!lamour

GA!LAMOUR

A fusion between glamour(duh) and ga!
as in gah!(munus the frustration),
bah!
what(with a silent t),
Hmmm-with approval and bewonderment(or not-depends who you ask).
Basically a light hearted take on the glamour,like tongue-in- cheek-kinda glamour,where every piece of hair and make up is not always in place,and the look and outfit is fun,unexpected and make you go ga!
GA!+ AMOUR(love in french)=Ga!lamour
GAla+gLAMOUR=Ga!lamour.
Fabulous without being too perfect,or to take oneself too seriously.In other words,fun,creative,not for every taste glamour.Emphasis on fun,not perfection.There.

Vintage brown leather and cream creation inspired by suitcase

Vintage creation with a touch of D.I.Y. Inspired by a vintage suitcase.Corset and pleated skirt,customized with leather flaps, crocheted gloves,glasses and hats-all vintage.All the pieces you see here were bought at the different times,but with the same thought in mind-to match the suitcase.So it took around half year to find the missing pieces.

Vintage brown leather and cream look 1

As per usual ,I first  buy the button and then build a coat around it.So to speak.In  that case my ”button”was the vintage suitcase.I found this leather and cream little case thrown!! on the street,in front of my local charity shop.Lucky for me,somebody doesn’t appreciate the slightly beaten up face of it and doesn’t care about history,so I rescued this real treasure.Next became the hunt for outfit to match  it’s vintageness.First came the midcalf length pleated vintage skirt,which I cut short.Followed by the same color corset.Too plain for my taste, I desided to add 2 thick leather flaps with little metal suspenders for more vintagey and matching my suitcase look

Vintage brown leather and cream look 2

Vintage brown leather and cream look 3

Here I put a cassette tape belt(not vintage,but cassette tapes are practically vintage nowadays,so that may count).Worn with different vintage hat(who by the way starred in this vintagey look-http://wp.me/p2iumO-w3).To finish the look I added the vintage fur hand muff-also doubles as a bag,with little mirror inside.Vintage sunglasses.Two tone italian leather shoes-contemporary,but they give extremely vintage vibe.

Aaand that’s how this humble suitcase inspired me to put all this.It look good as a decoration in my living room and inside I store my leather scraps for future projects.It also looks good as a weekend trip stylish bag.Beauty and function in one.Perfect.

Vintage groove is in the heart summer outfit 2013

This ”groove is in the heart” look works best on a bad hair day-thus the scarf.

Hot Haute Couture Favorites Part 4

Coming to life greek or roman statues paraded in Oscar worthy,baroque-y,golden and white swishing gowns on the runway of Zuhair Murad.With their intricate and rich detailing,soft drapery,luxurious fabrics they should be the obvious choice for any self respecting A-list actress to kill it at the Oscars…

This is my absolute favorite…If I ever win the lottery…

If I was a stylist,I would drape this over any A-list actress-young,old,thin or plump-its so forgiving and versatile and gorgeous.Minus the horrid shoes.

And those were some of my favorites for this Paris Fashion week.

Although I was  dissapointed by my  favorite fashion house bla-collection,I applaud every single designer for their hard work,and creativity and real designer-ness.Because even with not-for-every taste creations,the bona fide ,eating,breathing and living art and fashion couturiers(or boys and girls,dreaming to be couturiers)deserve more respect than the
newly-minted-”designers”.Or more like ”whore-signers”-only for expanding their-resume-and bank account-would do-anything for fame and money-reality fake-ality stars-turned-”designers”-ex-singers-turned-”designers”-present singers-turned-”designers”-singing-show-winners-turned-”designers”-got peed on -sex-tape-release-es-turned -”designers”,sex-tape-release-es-turned-”designers,rich housewifes-turned ”designers”,daddy’s spoiled girls-turned ”designers”.

SO,Respect for the real designers.And those boys and girls at home with sewing machines,style at heart and big dreams.Those are the REAL thing…

Really.Utmost respect.
