Springtime in Barcelona
Today I am showing you all a shoot I did last week in the city. The weather was incredibly nice and I got to wear for the first time this houndstooth pencil skirt from Bettie Page Clothing. Don’t confuse the brand with Tatyana!
Hi lovelies! How are you doing? This is my first post of 2015, woo-hoo!
How is the new year treating you all? It’s only been 12 days but I am enjoying it so far. My job at a fashion magazine is going really well: I couldn’t ask for a better job at the moment!
Today I am showing you all my outfit, inspired by the hashtag #JennyJanuary that Miss Amy May, a gorgeous and lovely gal I follow on Instagram, decided to create for this week (12th-18th January). If you own any Pin Up Girl Clothing Jenny skirts or dresses, make sure to post an outfit pic to join the conversation on IG so that other users and fellow Pin Up Girl Clothing fans can see others’ outfit ideas. Sounds fun, huh?
I styled my Jenny Skirt – which I purchased during the Black Friday sale among with other items – with a basic jersey from H&M and a pair of pink shoes from Los Angeles, a lovely shop in Barcelona specialized in cute designs on shoes.
I promise I won’t take long to show you another outfit!
Cindy Bangs Gal
I haven’t updated the blog decently in weeks! Recently I got a job in a magazine so I spend from Monday to Friday writing articles non stop. Sounds great, right? It is really cool but exhausting! That’s why I don’t even have time to blog.
Remember I told you about the idea of becoming a model? Well, then here you go! Last week I had the opportunity to model for a vintage-inspired brand from Barcelona called Cindy Bangs. They make great garments inspired in the 1940s and the 1950s, and the quality is excellent.
And I couldn’t be happier, to be honest!
Bathing Beauties: The Nifty 50s
Ah, the 50s! Fabulous days in the sun, huh? Back when people didn’t have smartphones and electronic devices, beach days were filled with photographers, sufers and young couples often accompanied by friends (at least in Spain, where unmarried couples were often watched over to ensure they wouldn’t do inappropiate things).
In the mid 40s a new type of swimwear came out: shorter swimsuits and two pieced suits would soon hit the beaches, especially in the 50s. Women would no longer be afraid of showing off their bodies, and the popularity of the two pieced bathing suit (which later on would evolve into the bikini) encouraged more women to go to the beach to get a tan.
