DIY Cocktail Glass Earrings

DIY Champagne Martini Cointreau Sidecar Cocktail Glass Earrings

Over the holidays Dita Von Teese did a video with Cointreau showing some easy and delicious party cocktails (you can see it here).  In the video show wore some gorgeous cocktail glass earrings (no doubt a tribute to her martini glass burlesque act).  I searched everywhere for these earrings but to no avail… so I decided to make my own.  Nothing like a little DIY project to get Starlet style on a budget.

Here are the supplies that are used (I found the best Swarovski bead selection at JoAnne Fabrics, and the cone beads for the cup part of the glasses I found on Ebay). (more…)

Back To Starlet School: Take a Class

Back to Starlet School Take an Adult Education Class

Kids shouldn’t be the only ones who get to learn new things when Back to School time comes around.  So come September, why not take a class that you’ve always wanted to take.  It doesn’t have to be anything expensive.  Here are some ideas to get you thinking… (more…)

1940s Inspired Updo

1940s Inspired Retro Modern Updo Hair tutorial

Modern pompadours are very trendy for Fall.  I wanted a new take on this look and do a modified retro bumper bang.  You can do almost anything you like with the back of the hair, and you can modify this look to suit your style and face shape.

Starlet at ComiCon

This past weekend I was asked to perform my stand-up comedy set at Connecticut Comiconn.  I was excited (and so was my comic-book-geek boyfriend).  I didn’t want to dress up in character because I would be doing a comedy set as myself, but I did want to dress up.  I found this adorable, comfortable, and affordable dress at Dr Jays, and paired it with this vintage inspired purse, ballet flats (I knew there would be a lot of walking and standing so heels were out of the question), and I took this opportunity to try a fun new hairstyle

Vintage Girl Studios Photoshoot

Nothing makes a girl feel like a Starlet more than a photoshoot.  It doesn’t really matter if the photos are to promote a new Hollywood Blockbuster or a family portrait, find a great photographer and book a session.  You can always use professional photos of yourself, so it will always be worth the investment.  I worked with Krzystyna from Vintage Girl Studios a few years ago for some pics for my comedy website, but I decided I wanted some Everyday Starlet inspired photos.  I did my own hair and makeup for the shoot, and I love the results…

Hot Dogs and Champagne with How To Marry a Millionaire

One of my all-time favorite films is How To Marry a Millionaire.  It’s Marilyn Monroe, Betty Grable, Lauren Bacall, gorgeous fashion, and hot dogs and champagne… what’s not to love?  So I decided to make a healthy hot dog with a whole grain bun, and an Applegate Turkey Hot Dog (the healthiest dog I could find)… and I added some organic ketchup.  Served with some champagne and my favorite flick, I was in Starlet heaven… now all I need is a millionaire (but my boyfriend would probably prefer I become one myself)…
