Fashion Friday with Etsy Vintage - White Hot!

Wow, where has the time gone? Memorial Day has come and gone. I guess it's safe to say summer is here. You know what that means?...bring on the white pants!
There's some sort of "rule" white pants can only be worn after Memorial Day and before Labor Day. Personally I say that's a bunch of bull. If you're gonna wear 'em wear 'em well and with confidence. As long as you do that then where white when ever you dang well please. The only "rule" I suggest (okay beg) you follow is wear skin colored undies. I don't want to see anyone out there wearing white undies and thinking no one can see 'em because we can!
Here are a few of my favorite hot white vintage finds on Etsy.

Middle: White Danger Ultra Minidress with Tiered Polkadot Skirt - XS Small $54.00
Upper Right: Vintage 1980s White Anchor Button Tapered Sailor Trousers Sz S $48.00

Driving with Dressforms

As you may or may not know I was chosen to drive the Chevy Traverse for four weeks and blog about my adventures, likes and dislikes. So far the Traverse has been nothing but a great car.
I recently put the Traverse to the test by using it to transport two adults, four kids, and a ton of dressforms on a photo shoot for "Dressforms by Dana". Not only did the Traverse need to house all these people and things comfortably, it also needed to help me keep four kids entertained while Stacey (my photographer) and I worked on getting the perfect shot.
Check out this video and see how we did and how the Traverse helped us, if at all...

Fashion Friday - Photo Shoot with the Dressforms

I have had a hard time deciding what to write about today. I have too much to say! I think I found a way to roll everything into one fab little Fashion Friday pkg...
This past week I have been driving the Chevy Traverse for a promotion I've been working on with the Select Heartland Chevy Dealers. It's a great car which fits a lot of kids, adults and dressforms. Yes, I said dressforms. I found this out first hand when I hired amazing photographer Stacey Montgomery to take pictures of my dressforms.
Below are just a few of the amazing pictures Stacey took (join the HDV FB page to see more pictures in the near future). I had some crazy ideas on where I wanted the pictures to be and what I wanted them to look like. Stacey delivered in every since of the word...

For all my Fashion Friday fans, you're probably wondering what the above has to do with Fashion Friday??? Don't worry, I have you covered too.

Scarves, hats and large jewelry is hot hot hot right now and in my opinion will be for a long time to come.

We spend out money of beautiful accessories and then we hide them in our closets sometimes forgetting what we have. NO LONGER!
Use the Dressforms by Dana to hang your scarves, store your jewelry, and do it all in a fashionable way that features your items as what they are... works of art which expresses your unique sense of style.

So there you are. A nice little Fashion Friday which somehow covers almost everything I wanted to talk about today. Check back with my blog for a video of the dressform photo shoot. Hopefully I'll have it up this weekend.

If you have questions on any dressforms please feel free to contact me!!!
