Sponsor Salute~ Candy Violet Boutique!
Iam super excited to introduce all of you to a brand new sponsor here on my site, 'Candy Violet'. Candy Violet is a one stop shop for unique and vintage inspired goodies, from simple petticoats to elaborate wedding attire. The site is beautiful to look at and easy to navigate, making it the kind of store you wish you could experience in person.
As Vivian says, it's more like the type of boutique you could expect to find 'back in the day', when what we now term 'vintage style' was what everyone expected to find in their local shops. Her pieces are all gorgeously constructed and designed to flatter the female shape, while offering unique touches you won't see anywhere else.
I love the authentic look of her dresses, particularly. The above full skirted number, for instance, reminds me a lot of that gorgeous brocade dress that Eva Marie Saint wore in the Hitchcock film, 'North by Northwest'. Not to be overlooked are also the gorgeous capes and jackets offered in the store. This faux fur piece will undoubtedly turn heads at formal winter events:
In addition, there are a variety of unique accessories available-from jewelry and hats to bags and belts. The shop even has a great selection of Besame' Cosmetics (one of my all time favorite brands) there for the choosing! Needless to say, everything you need for a glamorous Bombshell look is right there in one place.
Please check out Vivian's site by clicking on the tab to the right, in the sponsor column. Also, don't miss her gorgeous blog, where she discusses her design endeavors and style sense.
