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.

This was a big week for outfits! Been busy, busy, busy. Hope you enjoy!

Monday’s Look

This combination is a tried and true look of mine as I bought the top ages ago for the purpose of matching with my Mary Blair Lips & Roses skirt. This top is lightweight and beautifully structured with seaming in all the right places. If I could choose any vintage top of mine to replicate in multiple colors, it would definitely be this one!

Tuesday’s Look

This is another tried and true outfit (though these shorts haven’t seen the light of day since last summer). Nothing is cooler than silk shorts and Le Bomb Shop’s Marilyn tops! And Lillian Madison’s Lady brooch definitely upped the outfit game by leaps and bounds, in my opinion.

Wednesday’s Look

I found this gorgeous capri/skirt combination in a Facebook sale group at an amazing price! As I’m a sucker for any kind of vintage skirt/capri combination item, I made the purchase despite the fact that I knew the sizing was an inch too small in the hips. When I received them in the mail, I was heartbroken to find that I could BARELY get them zipped up (despite the waist supposedly being an inch larger than my measurement) due to the narrowness of the legs/hips. These are going up for sale since I can’t even sit down properly in them, but I did at least get an hour’s wear out of ’em! Also, was completely smitten with the curls my bangs were falling in, so made sure to accentuate the finger-wave-esque look along the area.

Thursday’s Look

This might very well be my favorite look of the week just because of the HAT! I’ve had this hat on layaway since my birthday to match the custom playsuit I’m waiting on from Ains & Elke StyleHaus and finally paid it off and received it in the mail! I particularly love that the photos almost make it look like I’d gone with a higher, asymmetrical do on top because of my black hair blending into the asymmetrical black base of the hat. I’m so in love with this hat, that I’m contemplating creating a whole week of looks based around it! Shouldn’t be too tough since shades of blue and teal are most common in my wardrobe being my favorite colors to wear 😉

Friday’s Look

Speaking of my favorite color, I also recently acquired this gorgeous white top adorned with chickens and flowers in various shades of blue. I LOVE having a blouse with a bit of a pattern to match the border of my Pinup Girl Clothing Jenny Mary Blair Umbrellas skirt. I often grow bored of only being able to match solid tops to skirts with bold prints, and this small amount of print is just enough to lend the look that little something extra!

Saturday’s Look

As I knew I’d be heading to a drag show in a little town in Arizona, I decided to don an outfit that left me well prepared for the heat! Though the sun never ended up being a problem, I was certainly glad I was wearing shorts instead of a skirt or dress, and ended up with some AMAZING photos once I decided to play up a “drunk girl in the desert” look for fun ;). Besides, what a HAT!

Sunday’s Look

Today’s look was dedicated to my favorite Disney dame, Belle. Since I had a Beauty & the Beast sing-a-long to attend, I pulled together a quick Disneybound to emulate the outfit she wears in the “Something There” scene, with the added touch of birds as a shoutout to what happens at that point in the film. Looking back, I do wish I had a dusty purple to throw into the mix, but you work with what you have 😉

Weekly Outfit Roundup (03/28/2016-04/03/2016)

Collage_FotorWelcome to my first Weekly Outfit Roundup!

This is where you’ll find me posting my collection of outfits composed of a mix of vintage and reproduction from the week! Hope you enjoy!

This week came as a blessed relief here in Tucson as our desert climate dropped down to the 60s! Perfect excuse to wear the longer sleeves, hotter materials, and tighter skirts that it’s generally just too hot to wear these days.My favorite outfit is definitely a tie between Thursday’s and Friday’s look, and the hair-dos from these days were also two of my favorite looks on myself of all time. The white top I’m wearing by Pinup Girl Clothing in the second outfit is one of my favorite cuts for a top and fits me much better in the waist than most PUG tops, but the shirt runs extremely tight in the arms so rarely gets used. I can’t bring myself to give it up since I’m a sucker for a standing collar and it’s the only one in my wardrobe (and it balances out the voluminous Jenny skirt from PUG so brilliantly!), but wearing it definitely comes with a bit of discomfort. My second favorite features my new pink peasant top from Tatyana acquired in their recent 50% off sale. It’s a thin top, but that makes it perfect for summer here. It’s a nice cheap alternative to Pinup Girl Clothing’s peasant tops if you’re willing to show a little midriff (though they have long versions available as well!) and wear a top that doesn’t necessarily accentuate your waist but definitely gives you that youthful look.

Love,

Miss Lark Bahar
