Product and service review

Lux de Ville

If you love your retro and vintage inspired dresses the only way to complete your look is with a handbag that matches..

I first laid eyes on a Lux de Ville bag at my regular tattoo shop, there were a couple of styles for sale and at the time the bags in the shop had more of a tattoo alternative look.

I purchased a red bag with black spades and a chain across the front.. Once I was home with the bag I decided to track LDV down on the computer and I was beside myself with what I had found..

Why did I not know of these sooner..?

Since that time my collection has grown.. I also do not see an end to purchasing either..! With every season a NEW collection is offered with colours and styles this gurl cannot resist..

My second LDV was bought for me by my hubby at a Tattoo Convention.  The 1/2 moon Swallow Print Clutch that is my go to bag.  With Leo fur on the bottom, black bag with white sparrows it is versatile and easy to hold.

My collection would then grow to include the Sin city Motor Tote in Green Sparkle

Black and White Kiss Lock

The Getaway White Sparkle Kiss Lock

The most recent addition to the collection is the Femme Fatal in Black

They are one of a kind type bags and I found the quality fair and the price point is in-line with similar type retro pieces.. I remember receiving my first Pin Up looking LDV in the mail and I swore I would never buy another type of bag again..

I have always been someone that is keen on the details.. I appreciate the small things and my eye is attracted to symmetry which you get when an outfit is completed head to toe with complementary accessories..

I am committed to my Pin Up look when I am in public, I feel I cannot wear just any bag and that my LDV’s are my cherry on top..

I often get allot of comments on the bags and it is handy to have a few to coordinate with my dresses.. They clean up nicely with a quick spray of Vinegar..

I have purchased all but the one bag from Rowena’s in Edmonton..

Check them out.. ❤

Tits on a Unicorn..

From the beginning of time woman have had breasts.. Born for function these beauties also bare a form that triggers us visually. The response is in recognition of a Woman’s delicious femininity. With all the size and shape combinations the breasts also have ample names. No matter how you call them they are all around us and each set is show cased in as many fashions as one can think up.

The bosom appears to be a fan of controversy, regardless if they are aware of it or not.. They can bring up and stir many emotions and in the same hand can bring up and conjure none at all. They set us apart, literally whether a woman chooses to keep them under wraps or showcase her bosom, sensuality comes in all forms and displays and in this we admire.

I recently came across a FB Page that was embracing the above. With a cheeky approach to true booby appreciation with the combined humour and love of all Unicorns..

Introducing to you for your viewing pleasures ~ Tits on a Unicorn

I know your interested with the gorgeous name and it only gets better!

“Celebrating womanly charms” What better wording to encompass the intention of a Fabulous FB Page run by 5 of the most highly visible Pin Up Dolls on the scene right now..

*Insert Glitter* Introducing the Guardians of TOAU *Insert Sparkles*

NAOMI VONKREEPS- Star wars geek, filter lacking, dork extraordinaire, dark humoured, tattooed, internationally published alt model, possibly in love with Boba Fett.

VERONICA VIRGO- * FUCKING CLASSY * I love music… and clothes… and shoes… and food..

HARLEAN CARPENTER- Harlean Carpenter is a fiction created to create fiction. Her work is the study of a theory she once had about something she can only vaguely recall. Whatever she does next will almost certainly seem like a good idea at the time

KORINA M. LOPEZ- Helping save paws one Pinup at a time!

SALLY SPARROW- No, I am not the Sally Sparrow hunted by the Weeping Angels. I am a Vintage Pinup Model & Makeup Artist who harbours an unnatural love for corsetry, sci-fi, books, petticoats, gloves, My Little Pony and Colin Firth. I am equal parts Busby Berkeley Musical and Maleficent. Come and peek at me!

These lovely ladies came together as friends and wanted to start a fun fan page and what better direction to go then share what they love and have in common. You guessed it.. Tits and Unicorns..

The first distinguishing part of TOAU would be the two daily features.. Firstly the daily Unicorn.. An outstanding bit of Picture humour that includes at the center of attention a Unicorn, of course..

The second feature, The Daily Bazoombas. Your daily bosom picture and tantalizing write up by Mistress Sally Sparrow. Pictures of all shapes and forms, you get to know a bit more about the girl behind the bosom and see if that girl has her own page..

What a brilliant concept as you can go through all the delights if you check back through the Wall Photo album. Although the Page is new the Likes are through the roof. I can see girls lining up to submit to be the next Bazoomba of the Day..!

I know I was thrilled when I was informed I would fill this spot August 7th. Being that I have not done a “Professional” photography session. I adore taking pictures and the like. I would not have ever thought I could have been considered for such an achievement. Wow.. ❤

This for me is a new experience and specially as I am not familiar with showcasing my gurls.. This would prove to be an adventure yet after my conversation with Sally Sparrow I was even more compelled to participate as I knew and felt comfortable knowing this was in fun in a tongue and cheek campy way and I knew these ladies demanded the best and so I felt so comfortable..

Straight from the mouth of Sally Sparrow herself, she says to me…….

“We hope that people understand that we love boobs and it’s not meant in an objectifying way- it’s a celebration of womanly charms. We only feature girls that submit photos for the feature- all sizes, all shapes. We love it all! You don’t have to be a pinup model or have professional photos. We think women should love their bodies and be proud of them! We have great respect and admiration for the ladies.”

Most important to the Guardians of TOAU, they do not tolerate any derogatory comments at all and they have yet to delete any comments or block any user.

The second part of TOAU is the connection to their big sister page A page geared more to the Professional platform and it runs a contest that is based on fun and fairness no matter your genre of Pin Up style.. As read in their page description it is their “Mission to provide a fun & fair Pinup Contest environment that embraces and celebrates all types of pinup modeling. Our judging will be based upon the merits of the submitted photos and will NOT be a popularity contest based on the number of ‘likes’. will not tolerate any disparaging treatment or rude comments to any of its participants.

Yay for fairness and equal opportunity..

As for my adventure..

One of the greatest things coming into the Pin Up culture was the acceptance from other girls. I have always appreciated that beauty comes in many different forms. For me the consistent is seeing in a woman’s eyes how she is feeling about herself.

Being offered this opportunity made me feel quite special and super excited. As I love sharing the Pin Up girls I come across on FB land, I felt I was being recognized. I discovered Pin Up later than allot of other dolls, between my age and my sight I have felt is necessary to do as much as I can now. I have been collecting mental images for when I might not be able to look back at the photographic ones.

I myself have an ample bosom yet have never shown or flashed it about, My Heidi dress is probably the most cleavage put out there and so to look at pictures of woman in control of themselves and being most comfortable in their skin is very attractive and desirable to me.

Going through my collection of photos to see what I could put together I very soon discovered I did not have anything that came close to what might be considered a good ol’ cheeky shot..

My first attempt of my photos received a very bland review from my husband whom is quite the Boob guy and has given me quite the education over the past 10 years of our marriage.. He said your shots look nice, yet you can do better. Next thing I know he is researching pictures on the internet to give examples of what and how I should style myself.

My second attempt was in the yard, he happened to pick up the camera and so this time I went full out the opposite direction, shirt off trying to hold my over flowing handfuls all while keeping a demure look on my face and wonder how to make my body look all sexy and stuff..

Once reviewing the pictures I decided that was a fail too. How was I going to come up with a few enticing photos? Not over the top sex pot yet enough to give a little more lift to the eye brow when looking at them. It got to the point that any time I was in make up I was getting obsessed with trying to get the perfect shot yet all I really wanted to do was turn up my booby volume and with their size I was getting lost in them..

At the end of the day I came to the conclusion that we all package ourselves a little differently and this is what makes us eye candy. It is what comes from with in a person, what shines bright enough to be caught by film.

I adore the message of the Unicorns. It is really about embracing who you are and in my case having a cute time while doing it.. xx
