Discovering the World of Vintage

Hair, Makeup and Photographed by Damaris Santana

I decided to be in this photoshoot because Damaris was kind enough to come over and do my hair and makeup. I jumped at the chance since she is amazing at what she does! For the photoshoot, I wore a velvet burnout jacket with fringes. I paired the burnout with a black lace body suit from American Apparel, Forever 21 stockings, Jeffrey Campbell lace up wedges, and my favorite zipper detailed purse. I found this velvet burnout when shopping in Downtown with a friend and that was the day, I discovered the amazing world of vintage!

I love the versatility of the burnout jacket! It goes well with everything. And the details of this European-inspired piece creates a one of a kind look. Definitely a Little Girl Big World favorite.

A Day in Mission Street

(black maxi skirt, open back racerback tank, Roxy fedora hat, silver bangles, vintage necklace)

Mission Street in Pasadena is one of my favorite local spots. Since I love the indie-bohemian feel of this area, I had Jess wear a black jersey maxi skirt and my favorite racerback tank. It opens in the back, which is great for this summer heat. To add some length to Jess' petite frame, the maxi paired with wedge sandals is perfect for adding some height.

Ivory Lace Shorts, Floral Headband, and Black Wedges

(lace ivory shorts, Aldo black wedges, black top with lace detail, Forever21 headband, vintage purse)
Finally, a perfect day to bring out these ivory lace shorts! To promote Little Girl Big World's new clothing line, Cc, Duncan and I went to Pasadena for a photo shoot.

I had Cc wear two items from our collection. In this photo, she is wearing ivory lace shorts with snap buttons paired with a black sleeveless, button-down blouse with lace detail. And we can't forget the black suede wedges that I found at Aldo! If you noticed, we feel that this pump truly completes the outfit.

These lace bottoms are a Little Girl Big World's favorite! It is definitely a summer essential.

Summer Fave: Bohemian Inspired Headpiece

(Urban Outfitters Headpiece, Flowy white top (random Asian store), Abercrombie denim mini)

One of Little Girl Big World's favorites is the Bohemian Inspired Headpiece! I didn't have anything nearly as chic as Nicole Richie's "gold seven strand headband," which can be found at Kitson, but I did find this headpiece that Cc is wearing at a sale that Urban Outfitters had a few years back. This little accessory makes a statement all on its own.

Green Dress, "Love" Ring, Neon Pink Nail Polish

(American Apparel U Neck Dress, American Apparel Circle Scarf, Belt with chain detail (Korea), "Love ring from Kimski Design, Grey leather booties from Vision Shoes, China Media Nail Polish)

I am a fan of American Apparel! The Cotton Spandex Jersey Double U-neck dress is extremely comfortable and versatile. The great thing about a simple and well fitted dress is that the details complete the outfit.

I love the fit of this dress and that is why it is one of my favorites. While most dresses can drown a petite girl in all that fabric, the cotton jersey mini dress is very flattering.
