Pink Lemonade Lolita

It's Pink Lemonade! Not only is this the perfect pink drink, but it happens to radiate retro realness, with the ever so lovely combination of pastel pink & lemon. To celebrate summer, a cold glass of Pink Lemonade is a must, and rocking its cute and colorful combination...

Inspired by Sue Lyon as 'Lolita,' in the 1962 film, we opted for a fun and flirty look, with flouncing ruffles and a flock of flamingos. Keeping to the iconic look, heart shaped glasses were a must, and scream summer season. A big, blonde, bombshell bouffant was only proper for a Lyon-look!

Enter Unique Vintage's 'Mrs. Davis' bathing suit. The pink gingham halter top & the matching high waist bottoms have instantly become a go-to bikini for us pink collar girls. From dainty details, to retro ruffles and pink gingham, this 1960s inspired bikini is the perfect thing for any beach baby. Whether you want to go Gidget, or Brigitte, this darling little number is the ultimate in sweet & sassy!

Pink & Palms

It's the height of our pink collar summer over here in California, and nothing screams summer more than some swimsuits and sunshine! As you know from previous posts, we are suckers for plants on pink. Reminiscent of our pink collar hot spot, the Beverly Hills Hotel's famous wallpaper by Don Loper, we lust for luscious palms - and movie star meets martinique!

Enter Unique Vintage, with their "Kingdom & State" Retro Palms swimsuit, boasting all of the above. Available in separates, you can find the Bombshell Balconet Swimsuit, and the Bombshell high waist bottoms to create the ultimate palm pinup look. The iconic print is truly a summer must have, and did we mention it looks fabulous paired with pink? 

Pair with Sun Jellies Atomic Totes in pink, and you are ready for some California, Beverly Hills, Old Hollywood glam! Thanks to our friend Susana of Vestige Photo, for capturing our summer fun <3

La Dolce Vita Part II

It's La Dolce Vita Part II, with a lighter summer version of the Fatale Embroidered Prom Dress, by The Pretty Dress Co. Now available in ivory, you can get that same saucy, signorina look as the black, only in this season's hue. It would only be right to take this silhouette for a stroll in some vineyards, with beds of red & white roses, reminiscent of the Italian countryside. To add some extra glamour, I wore my favorite red velvet Tom Ford x YSL heels, from 2003 - complete with lucite and gold heel accents. 

To play off some peasant style, I wore some red carved hoops, and a vintage wicker floral handbag. The last touch of glam was my great grandmother's vintage, baroque style, ruby brooch, with dangling pearls from Italy.
