Beyond the Valley of the Dolls with Bianca Boom Boom

Bianca Boom Boom is bringing the vintage glamour in this week’s ode to Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.

I was so excited to have Bianca join me for this particular photoshoot because I know she has a stellar collection of vintage garments.  This psychedelic metallic dress is the perfect embodiment of 60s glamour and style and Bianca is rocking it!  You can see this vintage vixen performing on June 11th at Striptease and Cheese and this summer at the Toronto Burlesque Festival!

Disco Dolly

This weekend I celebrated my 26th birthday!  To keep the celebration going I thought I would share this fabulous photoset from my recent shoot with Photolena.  I’ve been a huge fan of Photolena for so long that I couldn’t resist the opportunity to work with her.  We shot a ton of stuff together, so expect to see more in the next few months.

First up is our 70s themed disco girl set.  I love 70s fashion and decided to go full on roller girl, minus the skates, for my first look.  I created this outfit myself and found the perfect accessories to complete the ensemble.  I hope you enjoy Disco Dolly!

The Bowie Room

I have been such a busy lady recently and have been focusing way more energy on photography than modelling.  So you can imagine how thrilled I was to receive some new/old photos from shoot I did way back in 2o14.  Michael Terry of DWS took these amazing photos of me in this David Bowie themed room.  Enjoy!

The Two Piece Playsuit

One of my favourite vintage trends for summer is the two piece playsuit!  The term ‘playsuit’ is usually used to refer to a garment that combines a top and shorts all in one (also known as a ‘romper’) or a top and pants (also know as a ‘jumpsuit’).  You could also use the term ‘playsuit’ to refer to a combination top and bottom that are made from the same fabric, or combination of fabrics, also known as a two piece playsuit.  The bottoms on a two piece playsuit could be pants, shorts, a skort or a skirt.

The two piece playsuit speaks to a time when quality and custom clothing was more common in fashion.  Nowadays most of the clothing we buy is mass produced in factories overseas and is cheaply made and not meant to last.  In the 1940s, 50s and 60s when you were likely to see this kind of playsuit set they were often made by tailors, local designers, and from home-sew patterns and included fun matching details that made the separates a completely co-ordinated outfit.  To me the two piece playsuit is not only very convenient and practical (who doesn’t love co-ordinating separates?) but it also looks elegant and super sweet!
