vintage fashion friday is here!

Happy Friday, you fierce fashionista, you!

Today we’ve got a lot of mid-century cuteness.
A tutorial for 40′s style nails, a new vintage shop that focuses on the 50′s, a gorgeous 50′s lingerie photoshoot and of course some genuine 1950′s items that you can add to your ever-growing collection.

Vintage Fashion Friday: Heatwave Edition

This heat is crazy bats insane, yes?

The kinda hot that – for better or worse – melts away your worries about how you look in a pair of booty shorts!

We at Mable’s take the “what you resists, persists” approach,
and have stripped down to our vintage bikinis
while keeping our glasses of cucumber-spiked spring water full.
Oh, so refreshing.

So take a break from the sweltering temps, and enjoy the cool breeze of another hand-crafted Vintage Fashion Friday!

Make your entry as true or imaginative as you’d like. Just keep it fun! Here are some examples:

This summer I’ve spent the 9-5 hours at work, but everyday when I clock out I head to the beach. I watch people lounging, playing and surfing, look for seashells, and just breathe in the fresh, salty air. It helps me unwind, and it’s really fun for me as well. I only get about a half hour before I have to head home to make dinner and just go about the rest of my day, but that half hour at the coastline is what has made this summer beautiful.

On the first day of summer this year I packed up a little suitcase, hopped in my propeller plane, and have been traveling the globe every since. I’ve soared over the pyramids in Egypt, nearly skimmed the rainforests of Belize, soared above the mountains of India, and grazed the black sand beaches of New Zealand. By the end of summer I will have visited just about every place that I’ve ever dreamed of! I guess I’ll have to visit the rest of them next summer…

Good luck and have a great summer everyone!
