Everyday Starlet


Vintage Etsy Finds

I’ve recently fallen in love with Etsy.com.  It’s a great way to vintage shop from the privacy of your own home.  I’ve shared some of my past vintage finds, but here are some of my latest acquisitions…

An adorable embroidered linen towel from the 1940s.  I’m not sure what I’m going to do with it, but it was too cute to pass up.   It’s from Pink Chic Boutique

Vintage 1940 Embroidered Corset Pin Up Towel

A 1940s rhinestone coin purse from Yesteryear Glam.  To add a little glamour to my purse. (more…)

Memorial Day Whites… and Polka Dots

Best Sports Bras for Full Figures

Since swimsuit season is coming, this is an Everyday Starlet’s version of training for a big movie role.  So now is the time to grab some cute workout wear, make a fun playlist, and pick your favorite exercise to get that Pin Up Girl figure.  If you’re a busty lady like me, then working out (especially cardio and any kind of jumping) can be challenging.  So I wanted to give you ladies some options for supporting your “ladies”.

Enell:  Wire-Free Maximum Control Sports Bra

Bare Necessities Enell Wire-Free Maximum Control Sports Bra

I have not tried this bra (I prefer sports bras with underwire), but Christina Hendricks has said in interviews that she wears this style…. And it comes in pretty pink.

Women Crush Wednesday at the Met Gala

The Met Gala is one of the biggest nights for fashion and glamour, so I wanted to share with you some of my Women Crushes and their looks at this year’s Met Gala….

My personal favorite, Dita Von Teese, was there and  Instagramed about why the Gala this year was so special to her…

Dita said: Striptease Queen Gyspy Rose Lee was one of legendary couturier Charles James’ dearest friends and best clients. Tonight The Met Ball celebrates the opening of the Charles James exhibit at a The Met, and I’m honored to be invited as muse to a designer who, like Charles James, creates incredible feats of haute couture glamour.

This was Dita’s dress by the talented Zac Posen (more…)

Dita Von Teese’s Best Outfits at Coachella

Coachella is over, and I can’t say that most of the fashion seen at outdoor music festivals is really Starlet style.  But leave it to Glamour Queen Dita Von Teese to show everyone how to retain your style no matter where you are.  Here are my favorite looks of Dita’s at Coachella:

I love this fun summer dress, and the Keds are cute and comfortable
