My Dress: Vivien of Holloway
Shoes: Zara (old)
I haven’t posted in a while, some of you probably know why… But anyways, this is a happy post! I did Kalliopi’s make up (aka Madame Gateaux) and she also interviewed me about vintage makeup and we had a blast!
I can talk for hours about the history of make up and fashion and especially with Kalliopi, as she’s a also a fan of the 1950’s like I am. So, she made us a very refreshing nectarine iced tea and I did her make up, while chatting about Hollywood starts and their beauty secrets and so on…
You can read all about it on her blog Madame Gateaux (if you understand Greek that is) or you can just enjoy more beautiful pics! Also, have a look here at my post about her unique Vintage themed tea parties!

Pedal pushers: Vivien of Holloway
Shoes: Zara (old)
If you’re trying to build a vintage style or pinup wardrobe you have to start with the essentials. And what other than the pedal pushers?! It is something you can wear everyday, mixing and matching with different sweaters and tops and you can create many styles for the day or even for the evening. I found my favorite pedal pushers at Vivien of Holloway and I have been wearing them all the time. They’re high waisted and kind of loose fitting, in a non stretchy cotton fabric.
For a more authentic look, you can combine them with a slash neck top , a sweater or a shirt you can tuck in or maybe a twin set. I also always pair it with a wide belt for extra cinching at the waist. For shoes, you can choose from high heeled pumps, ankle boots, brogues, ballerinas or even sneakers (50’s style).

This is the last of my shoots in London. I’d like to thank John for collaborating with me and taking such amazing pictures! I’ll miss London and all the wonderful and talented people I met! <3
