I am a lifelong lover of the vintage style. As long as I can remember I've always loved the elegance and glamor of retro and vintage clothing. As a child I remember playing with my grandmother's aprons and getting dressed up in her beautiful dresses. Even today her style continues to inspire me. To me, the style just comes naturally and is now a part of my daily routine. It is who I am.
In my spare time I often enjoy baking. Whenever I'm creating cute and tasty treats I'm taken back to my time spent baking with my family. As a mother of two, the happy and joyful moments spent mixing up an old family recipe are countless.
I also love to let my creativity flow. Whether its through my drawing or creating handmade crafts, I often find myself with many projects on hand. From hair accessories to cigar purses there's always something new I'm creating.
My style can often be described as a mix of both cute and creepy. My love of all things gothic and horror can sometimes mix and blend into my style. Around Halloween I love to get creative with my decorations and costume, finding the best mix of elegance and horror I can come up with.
I am a Jersey Girl at Heart but live in Florida for the last 20 years. I found a Gem of a Local Store called the Parisian Hostess and met the owner Tamara. I fell in love with her store and would shop there on a weekly basis. Her inspiration made me want to be a Pin Up Model. I joined the classes she gave about how to do Makeup, Victory Rolls, Eye Lashes and Posing. I was nervous in the beginning but she built up my confidence and self esteem. Tamara even helped coming up with my name Lavender Lady because of my Purple Hair and Tattoos. Doing Pin Up gives me so much happiness and confidence in myself. Can’t wait to see what the Future holds for me.
