So, it’s no secret to anyone who knows me that I get migraines! I had just gotten this beautiful Stratton compact to go in my cute handbag, but I had the UGLIEST pill case for carrying my migraine rescue meds around. It was this very beat up hospital-y looking plastic thing. It was a crying shame, heh! So I started looking around for a vintage pill case and found that Stratton also made these, too. I did see some matching compact and pill case sets, but I had my heart set on using the compact I already had (more modern, with room for a larger modern day powder puff), so I just found one that wouldn’t clash much. This black one should go with any future brass and black enamel compacts I chose (there is an amazing Art Deco red rose design, though I have seen both pill cases and compacts in that design).
I’ve always been obsessed with vintage makeup, fashion, etc. I was unable to sleep tonight and stumbled across this gem! Can’t you just see them doing this with modern day contour/highlight sticks? Our makeup roots are strong…this video is from the 30s!
Women…over-drawing our lips for 80 years! 😉
Ok, so I missed it by a few minutes here on the East coast, but in most of the country, it’s still International Fluevog Day! In store had 15% off, I believe, and every 45th web order was/is free. Nope, I did not order anything today, but I wanted to share my latest acquisition, which is my favoritest pair of shoes in the history of MANKIND, the Fluevog Esoteric Temptations Odette:
Ok, so that photo is a little dark. Basically, this newer design is a mary jane hybrid of the older 80s/90s Swordfish toe, with the Frugal heel. You Voggers will understand this language; everyone else just keep reading (giggle). There’s a platinum colored band around the heel for an extra embellishment. But what really gets me…is this buckle!
TINY SILVER SKULLS, Y’ALL.
Oh, you want to see it with some fancy tights? I knew you did.
How about purple with a tulle tea length skirt?
How about some fencepost tights with a four-cornered skirt?
How about some sexy lace?
Oh my godddddddddddd. You guys. Sometimes I get these shoes out of the box just to *look* at them. Do you have any clothing or accessories you feel like that about? Leave me a comment!
