So, Laura Byrnes suggested I make this into a blogpost, so here it goes...
I have learned alot about what to do and what NOT to do, at Viva Las Vegas. My first year was definitely about trial and error. So here are my tips and tricks to getting the most out of the experience:
1) Pack 2 outfits for everyday. Pack one outfit for the day and one for the night. Us ladies tend to get into something fancier at night. I usually go for something a little more comfy during the…Continue

I have a passion for great movies and amazing vintage silhouettes. I pursued Costume and Fashion Design degrees. After school, I decided to combine my two loves into designing vintage inspired custom gowns and redesigning vintage bridal gowns with a few non-traditional wedding gowns on the side. I love individuals that think outside the box. Extraordinary bridal for the unordinary bride. Currently, I would like warmer weather in my life. If anyone has any projects they are…Continue
The Vivien dress has been re-imagined in Bengaline for this Fall 2012. This sheath wiggle dress has a flattering side gather that enhances all the right attributes and softens all those curves. With the single side shoulder and sloped neckline it oozes sex yet says, I am sophisticated. The crown jewel on this dress is nothing more but jewels themselves. You will find a multifaceted rhinestone applique' on the shoulder. Now be certain to dry clean the dress only, as the applique' must be…Continue

Vamp: Refers to a type of Femme Fatale, a mysterious and seductive woman. Femme Fatale is french for '' Deadly Woman'' ( Dame )
Micheline Pitt's Deadly Dames Vamp top in black was my first top purchased from Pinup Girl Clothing and since then I have purchased it in the baby blue, peach and next on my list is the lavender.

Sometimes, I wish that I could travel back in time and give my teenage self a hug and tell her everything is going to be ok. It seemed so hard back then – I made some stupid decisions which albeit, weren’t life shattering, but just made things a bit harder and more confusing. I wish I could just go back and give her some advice and some knowledge so things were a bit easier.
I got to thinking recently about what I actually would like to tell my younger self and even though it…Continue
One thing I get to do that I enjoy greatly is finding beautiful new fabrics for us to use. Be it hunting at fabric and textile tradeshows to, more importantly, creating new textile prints. One of my partners in crime in textile creations is Mr.Joe de Blois, and we are of course under the guided hand of Laura Byrnes.
First it all starts with an idea; be it from Laura, Joe or myself, it starts as an idea. From there we rough out the design, and show it to Laura for initial approval.…Continue

A Dame by any other name would look as sweet in the new Pinup Couture Dames Dress. Laura and I often collaborate and share ideas and designs, and since I discontinued my original Deadly Dames Dress in Black Bengaline she has never forgiven me. I can understand why, because every-time she wears it her body looks out of this world. (her body is out of this world, but you get what I am saying). So she asked if she could bring it back sans collar in Bengaline. I of course said yes since we still…Continue
