How to travel like a Pin-up girl.

So if you're reading this post I'm guessing you saw how fabulous Dita Von Tese or  Betty Grable look when they're traveling and wanted to know how to not look like a car/jet-lagged mess when traveling.

  • Keep your makeup bag in your purse.
I can not tell you how many times I have gone traveling and have overheard a girl say "left my makeup bag in my luggage! and I need to touch up my makeup!" at least have your compact, red lipstick and mascara in your purse  for easy access for touch-ups and a little tip if you have bags under your eyes or your eyes get red have you favorite cat-eye sunglasses in your purse too (you can thank me later.)

  • Have your hair in a head wrap. 
Now if you plan to fall asleep in the plane/car nine times out of ten your hair will get messy and instead of taking extra time to fix your hair up you can have in a wrap like this :

It saves you the time and sometimes embarrassment 
if you're traveling with people. 
  • Keep it simple.

Don't wear your highest heels or your tightest dress, keep it simple with flats and a black or dark-colored dress that you can dress up or down.

black pinup, vintage fur coat, vintage fashion, fashion,fur coat, vintage coat, coat,vintage, vintage fashion trends,

  • Coat brand : tissavel
  • Gloves brand : Fownes

vintage girl, vintage dame,vintage fur coat,

So I was searching the web and I found the pictures above 
and I thought about my burgundy gloves and my brown fur  coat
 and figured I could recreate the looks above.
I love this coat because it's soft like real fur but it's not
It just looks a lot like real fur. tissavel's coats look and feel just like the real thing!
I found a good seller on Etsy, they had a coat for sale and it reminded me so much of what betty or Wilma from the Flinstones would wear!

If you search the web you will find some good vintage sellers 
I found my coat on eBay they're selling lots of fur coats on there
I'm sure you can find one that suits your fancy!

Dots and spots.

This look was inspired by...
pot a dot skirt,vintage, fashion,

I found this photo on the internet and I was like. "I have the same skirt!"
And I was walking downtown at the time and I saw a lady with the same skirt on,
(In my town a lot of people wear vintage style clothing.)
so when I got home I went trough my closet and there it was in the very back (forgotten)
So I put on some nude Heels, got one of my vintage style laptop bags and went back into town
I've gotten lots of  compliments on it.
so if you're looking for a good vintage skirt check this one out!

Okay so guess who just bought
a new compact?  
vintage makeup, vintage blond,classic girl,

My old one was looking a little worn so I got 
a new one. 

I bought this compact on eBay
 I forgot how much it cost but the brand is Avon.

I love the little detail in the middle, 
it looks kind of like a snowflake.

The pink Powder Puff  is soft and feels nice on the skin.
the powder smells really good  sometimes I just open it to smell it.
I have yet to try out the powder on my face but I have high hopes for it, I just use this compact for Reapplying lipstick.

Overall it's a nice compact and I will be buying more like it.

The lady in Fur.

A full-length fur coat 

is a must have in a Pin-up girls closet.

A vintage style coat goes a long way in the winter.

One of my favorite coats looks just like that lady's coat above.
I even have a scarf that looks somewhat similar to the one she"s wearing.

Mink,coat, pinup,dan de carlo, vintage,pinup blog,

I have all kinds of coats but a good fur coat
is one of my go to like I just have to go out the house but I'm
not wearing my best outfit, I'll just trough a coat and some nice flats maybe a hat (if it's really cold) and there you go.

Of course this trick only works in the winter/fall.
unless your one of those people that like to wear coats in the summer.
then, in that case, it works all year long.

I have some fashion books
that talk about a good full-length coat

From the book of  fashion

So if you're looking for an easy go to look vintage for the winter/fall
Go with a good 1960's style coat.

What's your favorite kind of coat?
