Pink Shores & Millie Moore

It's getting to be shorts season again here in California, and we couldn't be more excited to have paired up with Millie Moore of California to show off the gams with some added glamour, in some seriously glorious weather. A Sunday funday filled with sunnies, and shorts, was just what we needed for a pretty pink collar day of road-tripping, and relaxation in between.

Millie Moore of California has certainly won our hearts, with their nostalgic and novelty infused designs, keeping in mind true vintage, which is evident in their use of patterns, prints and fabrics. With similar ethos as us girls at The Pink Collar Life, Millie Moore also strives to capture the golden age glamour of bygone eras, and does so with great attention to detail, using actual vintage trends, and keeps true to bombshell sizing!

Designer Heather Moore is a true Pink Collar gal at heart, and we resonate with her on so many levels. This platinum pinup has a degree in fashion, and has worked for the best in the industry, including Betsey Johnson herself. Also a California native, Heather embraces the California lifestyle and the history that it holds, and especially enjoys the art of historic costume. A true dreamer, living the Pink Collar Life, Heather followed her artistic dreams, creating her own line of vintage inspired clothing, leaving the corporate world behind. What a gal!

Whether we're by the Coast of Catalina or pink porches of country cottages, we are always viewing the world through rose colored lenses. Today, we were inspired by our particular favorite decade - 1940s. Thanks to Millie Moore, we were able to feel like our lady, Lana Turner with a fun, yet fancy look, perfect for some sparkling pink shores, or Catalina cruising. 

The perfect combo when paired with some 1940s platforms (and a very vintage record box!)

Millie Moore's signature high waisted shorts are available in Coral, Navy, and Creamy White, perfect for any 1940s nautical look! of course, we stepped out in our signature shade, wearing Millie's beautifully colored coral.

Some fabulous forties summer shades

Just like a pair of playful pink shorts from the 40s, the cut is covered, yet extra cute and comfy in cotton! With all the right pleats in all the right places, these shorts are perfect as pie, accentuating the waist, and show just enough skin.

Millie's Bow Halter Top is a soft and supple buttery shade of silk, and sure to be our Spring and Summer staple. Bows are the most delicate and feminine design element, and the delicate bow on the bosom has us swooning for more! Luckily, Millie Moore has this beautiful blouse in Navy, and a flirty forties, floral print.

The wonderful thing about Millie's designs is the endless styling possibilities. With her staple pieces, you can create anything from a pretty Polynesian aesthetic, to a sweet sweater girl, or senorita summer look. 

Millie Moore's inspiration for the shorts - Lana Turner in The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946) <3 

We're always on the go, endlessly looking for inspiration & nostalgia, so stay tuned when we head out in our blue 50' Ford, and hit the road in some more Millie Moore! <3
