Sorry I’ve been a bit absent this past week! Finishing up my semester at school, so was pretty busy. All done now though, and free to blog as much as I’d like!

Love,

Miss Lark Bahar

Tuesday’s Look

This look is one I put together last year for a photoshoot for Le Bomb Shop for 4th of July. The skirt got lost in the space beneath my bed for almost an entire year, so I had to take it out for a run soon as I rediscovered it; however, the more notable part of my wardrobe was definitely my hair. I tried putting finger waves in my hair for the first time and after an hour and a half of fruitlessly attempting to finger wave the sides and tops of my hair, I gave up and settled for vaguely finger waving the top. While I love the look on others, I might just have too much hair for this. I ended up being inspired by the below test photo of Judy for Ziegfeld Girl, just had to sweep some of the top of my hair to the side since I had too much of it to stay back in a properly shaped way.

Thursday’s Look

Since I was planning on selling this skirt to fund a new Pinup Girl Clothing purchase, I wanted to put together a look with it. Whipped out my Tatyana cropped peasant top for it and went for a sweet look!

Saturday’s Look

Reset my hair for the weekend – sadly, had to take it out when it was slightly damp, so the back isn’t nearly curled as usual – but re-wore my Paris Jenny dress! Converted into a skirt for the day (which is apparently a slightly painful process with Jenny dresses because of boning…….) PS, pardon the poor-quality photos for the following two days – left my camera charger at work so had to work with a phone!

Sunday’s Look

Only dressed up to go to the grocery store today to pick up a few essentials for my Harry Potter feast with my little sister and roomie, so planned something  around my red hat which is only wearable to a few places.

  1. Forgive the personal question but – I have to ask if you are wearing a bullet bra with your Paris Jenny skirt/dress and Vivien of Holloway JoJo blouse? If so, which brand do you recommend? I’d like to try one, but I’m not sure the silhouette is for me, and at 32DD, I’m not sure I’d quite fill one out. Any suggestions on this front?

    • Hey Julie! I don’t mind answering at all! I’m a 32DD as well, actually =). I can’t wear a bra with my Paris Jenny as I can’t zip it up if I do, but with the Viv top, I’m wearing What Katie Did’s Marlene bra in 32DD and I fill it out decently, but if I need a little help (or have a blouse that’s not showing the shape as much as I’d like,) I pop in Lucy B’s bullet bra pads to fill me out that extra little bit! They’re amazing and I honestly wear the WKD bra + bullet bra pads as much as possible. Love the shape they give me! But if you’re a bit nervous about the pointy shape, I’d try WKD’s cone bra instead of one of their bullet shapes, and opt out of the bullet bra pads (or at least get WKD’s which are much softer and rounder).

      Let me know if you have any other questions! ❤

      • Lovely, thanks! I am not too far from the LA/Burbank What Katie Did shop, so I will pop over there soon and I’m sure Ashleeta or one of the girls can fix me up. This is just what I needed to hear!

          • Thanks again for the advice. I loved the Marlene bra but walked away with the Maitresse (same cut, different fabric). It’s gorgeous and now I want more! Have you ever tried one of Lucy B’s bras? Her lingerie is lovely but I’m not sure of the quality. It would be great for you to do a round up of your favorite foundation garments – vintage, reproduction, and contemporary. Thanks again for the information!

            • I will as soon as I can afford more! Haha. I have indeed tried a Lucy B bra and the quality’s great, but mine has an underwire which I’m not fond of at all, so I rarely wear it. The cups are incredibly comfortable though!

  2. Harry Potter feast?! Sounds wonderful. I love that floral bakelite-inspired brooch. What eyeliner do you use, if you don’t mind me asking? My gel eyeliner smudges on my top lids sometimes, and it really bugs me.

    • It was delicious! I was planning on filming and posting it, but forgetting my camera charger put a damper on that hahaha.
      And I actually cheat! I use Revlon Colourstay Crayon along the lid, then layer over it with Maybelline Line Stiletto Liquid eyeliner and do the wing with it. Lasts much longer! And doesn’t cost an arm and a leg 😉
