Esprit Wishlist


Hi dolls! 

How’s your summer going? Are you basking in the sun and bathing in the sea these days? I went to the beach for several days and sang Elvis’ Blue Hawaii by the shore J I’m planning another mini trip and I’m already thinking about what to pack in my suitcase. I want to take classy, comfortable, feminine and fun clothes…..and you know the perfect brand specialized in these kind of clothes? The fashion brand Esprit.

I’m sure you all know Esprit. Esprit= high-quality, classy clothing. It’s an international fashion brand available in over 40 countries. They offer timeless attire and must-have basics for women, men and kids. They also sell accessories including footwear and bags. Esprit is a stylish brand that proposes collections including latest trends and trends that never go out of fashion! If you visit their store now, you’ll see that checkers are among the top trends offered at Esprit. I love checkers and gingham so I obviously had to include these two items in my Esprit Wishlist:

The blouse below is just perfect for a vintage-style summer! The checkers, the collar and the frilly sleeves make it adorable. I’m sure Audrey Hepburn and Brigitte Bardot would love it too! J It’s very versatile because you can wear it with a pair of jeans, a pencil skirt, a flared out skirt, shorts….

Gingham Check blouse in 100% cotton 

This floaty skirt with small checkers is also on my wishlist because again, 
it can match with tops of almost any color and style!
At Esprit, you’ll also notice flamingo prints and you gotta love flamingos! This cute top by Esprit is 100% cotton and it’s also available in pink and light grey:


Coz I can’t get enough of flamingos, here’s a turquoise bag by Esprit with flamingos and palm trees all over! The material is sturdy and shiny and the compartments make it very handy. Isn’t it flamingotastic?? :-)

Rucksack with Flamingo Print

What else is summer synonymous with? ICE-CREAM! That’s why I couldn’t resist and had to add this striped Esprit t-shirt depicting an ice-cream/popsicle for every day of the week. Sounds like a realistic plan to me! ;-) There are sparkly sequins on the ice creams too! <3

Ice-Cream T-shirt



Here are three retro-style dresses from Esprit that I would love to own:

1. Floaty stretch crepe dress                    2. Flared dress in 100% linen      3. Delicate chiffon dress with retro polka dots

In case you haven’t noticed, I love polka dots. You just can’t go wrong with polka dots! The first dress on the left is made out of stretchy crepe and I think it’s a must have dress that every woman’s wardrobe needs. A wardrobe also has needs, you know! The second dress is very unique and eye catching, made of linen which is very summer appropriate. The third dress is made of chiffon and it has a belt that ties into a beautiful bow….simply irresistible! These three dresses have that vintage flair and I love how you can wear them during the day with flats as well as at night, with a pair of heels. 


Another style that I think will never go out of style is the off-the-shoulder top. These kind of tops are also known as peasant style, gypsy style or Mexican style and I love this version by Esprit. White goes with everything and it’s 100% cotton with a lovely embroidery on the frilly upper section:

Off the shoulder blouse in 100% cotton
You know what I’d wear with the tops I just showed you above? 
These high-waisted denim shorts by Esprit.
Check out those buttons…perfect for a pin-up/rockabilly look!

Denim shorts 100% cotton 
Denim lovers, as if the above shorts aren’t adorable enough, here is a beautiful denim pinafore dress by Esprit. It’s light blue and it has the adjustable shoulder straps that make my heart soar!

Denim pinafore:

Below is another denim dress from Esprit, dark blue, with buttons that run down the center, pockets and compared to the above denim dress that slightly flares out, this dress is more figure hugging, emphasizing your curves. Oh, I think I’m going to buy this dress ladies!

Button placket strap dress in stretch denim 
Last but not least, the perfect bag for going on holidays is the…..

Printed Canvas Tote Bag
So ladies, do you shop at Esprit? Which are you favorite pieces? The items on my wishlist are just a few beauties from Esprit but they offer so much more that you should definitely check out.  Enjoy your summer and stay classy and fresh wearing Esprit!

FashionMia Dresses Review


Hi guys and dolls,

Can't believe it's already June! Today, I'd like to show you two dresses I received from an amazing online clothing store called FashionMia. You may already know about this brand as it's so popular. Their selection of fashion items is so vast and their prices are so low so it's not surprising that so many ladies are fans! What I love about this brand is that the clothes they offer are so unique and fun! They literally cover every style under the sun but as you already know, I especially love their vintage-style, whimsical and kawaii clothing! Speaking of vintage-style, the first dress I'm wearing below is one of FashionMia's best sellers:
This dress is so classy and original! 
The material is soft and sturdy and the quality is excellent. It came with a little coral colored belt and it's super comfortable. I chose the right size thanks to the useful size chart displayed on FashionMia's site. 
 

The second dress I'm wearing is FashionMia's: 
This dress is also very unique and it has a rockabilly vibe to it! How cool is the black, shiny belt? The belt is actually part of the dress. This dress is soft and very well made too. I'm really impressed by the quality of these dresses. 

Here below I'm wearing my Fashionmia dress while admiring
 all the Elvis goodies that my fan, Steve Hicks sent to me :-)

Both of these dresses by FashionMia are beautiful and special. I'm sure you'll agree that they're perfect for twirling around! The customer service was fantastic so I can only praise this fashion brand. If you have't visited this store yet, I highly recommend FashionMia! You'll be happy and so will your wallet ;-)

A DATE WITH ELVIS!!!

Hi guys and dolls,

How are you? I haven't been on here or my other socials for a while because I wasn't well. My fans Steve and Susan Hicks knew about this and they sent me a surprise package full of Elvis goodies and boy was I surprised! I am beyond touched. Thank you both so much for making me so happy! Elvis is my medicine; he makes everything so much better so needless to say, I am as happy as a clam!

My amazing care package contained an enormous Elvis encyclopedia 
(I think it weighs 5 kgs. I can do some weightlifting with Elvis haha!!):
A fabulous collector's edition magazine full of stunning photos of 
The King and fascinating articles about him:
A precious CD containing rare Elvis recordings. 
Steve also made a CD including my recordings:
And last but not least....Steve also created a funtastic DVD where ELVIS AND I ARE DATING!!!Yup, my dream came true! Steve wrote the script, edited the pictures/videos, added special effects and he directed the movie. It's so funny and sooo romantic! I always knew Elvis and I would end up together ;-) 
My chihuahua, Rocky, was also a protagonist of course. 
He's quite a troublemaker in the movie (and in real life):
I would need more hands to hold everything I received!!! :)
 Elvis and me at the beach:
 On a helicopter with all of our dogs:
 Kiss me quick!
 
Thank you, thank you very much, Steve and Susan! <3

ROLL & GO HAIR TOOL - Review and International Giveaway!


Hi dolls!

I am so excited to show you an incredible and groundbreaking hair tool for creating vintage-inspired hairstyles! It’s called the Roll & Go Hair Tool, invented by Lauren Rennells. Lauren is an amazing makeup artist and hairdresser. She is also the owner of the vintage hairstyling store and she runs the Bobby Pin Blog. You may already own her book, Vintage Hairstyling and her Rockin Rollers  (which I gleefully reviewed here). 

Just when I thought things couldn’t get any better, Lauren invented this innovative hair tool that is perfect for creating pin curls, victory rolls, bumper bangs, buns, French twists, you name it! Not only is this tool useful for vintage-style hairdos, it’s extremely handy for making twirly-curly shapes for more modern looking hairstyles. Being so versatile,  you can let your imagination run wild with the Roll & Go Hair Tool!  

Here’s a closeup of the Roll & Go Hair Tool. As you can see it’s a fun and very unique comb with long teeth for rolling and twisting and there’s a comfy central grip for you to hold. These are just a few examples of the hairstyles you can create with the tool: 

The Roll Go Hair tool came in the cute box below........
 ...which also includes bobby pins and a very helpful 32 page instructional booklet filled with step-by-step guides and tips. 
I decided to get rollin' ;) and tried the Roll Bangs first, following the instructions in the booklet. All it takes are 5 easy steps.........
Here I am securing the roll with bobby pins:
Ta-da! Easy as pie! Here are my roll bangs, using the Roll Go Hair Tool:
I also tried out a similar roll, but slightly sideways 
(Lauren's Upright Suicide Roll Tutorial can be seen here):
This is the result! I love how the roll turned out. It looks like a big wave <3 
I would never be able to achieve these styles without the Roll & Go Hair tool!
 

What I love about the Roll & Go Hair Tool:

-It’s SO easy to use
-It doesn’t require any heat or water!!!
-No tangling; it’s gentle on your hair
-It has two different sized ends so you can create big rolls or smaller rolls  according to your preference
-Its convenient size and weight; you can carry it in your bag and travel with it
-It’s fun!
-It’s a vintage lady’s DREAM

Also, you might have noticed that I often sport bumper bangs (also known as roll bangs) but frankly speaking, I’ve always found it time consuming and tedious creating them myself with no tools. I also often ended up making my rolls huge, much to my despair. I used to try using foam rolls but the visible spongy rolls are not aesthetically pleasing. This is why I couldn’t believe it when Lauren Rennells created the perfect tool to rescue me!

The Roll & Go Hair Tool makes life easier for all rockabilly and pin up dolls. It’s a must have for vintage lovers and all women who like to experiment with fun hairdos. I strongly recommend this revolutionary tool, ladies. You can purchase the Roll Go Hair Tool on Amazon (click here) and at: store.VintageHairstyling.com/roll-go-hair-toll/

Thank you, Lauren Rennels for making a rockabilly gal’s dream come true! J
