Hello all!

Another week of outfits for your viewing pleasure. Put together some exciting new looks this week!

Love,

Miss Lark Bahar

Tuesday’s Look

Since Tuesday was Valentine’s Day, I naturally pulled out this Vivien of Holloway dress that rarely gets worn since it’s a bit too tight in the hips and loose in the waist. Oddly enough, I’ve somehow never paired it with all red! I’m not much of a Valentine’s Day gal (pretty neutral about it, really), so I decided to pair it with my sassy Ariel brooch to give the themed look a bit of that skepticism. My wet set was also quite tight for some reason, so my hair looks a lot shorter than it usually does.

Thursday’s Look

Decided to take my brown suit out for a run before spring and summer hit full time, and was amazed when I actually looked at my closet and realized I had the pieces to a perfectly matching ensemble! The dress actually fits me awfully, very tight in the neck, tight in the bust, very loose in the hips and stomach, and the blazer fits loose in the waist and is a bit short (I have a suspicion this set was made for a petite size), but I love the ensemble enough that I might very well save it to get it tailored. I’d primarily bought the set for the blazer, so it’s a happy coincidence finding I can actually do something with the whole thing.

Friday’s Look

Wanted a quick and easy outfit, so decided to separate my Christmas harlequin set again to create a new outfit, this time with the top. Pardon the poor quality photos. Had to use my phone for these! And pardon the half painted nails! Didn’t have time to fix em up before going about my errands.

WEEKLY OUTFIT ROUNDUP (01/30/2017-02/05/2017)

Collage_Fotor.jpg

Hello readers!

You might have noticed how long it’s been since I posted an outfit roundup. Having graduated with my Masters in December (and subsequently lost my student job), I’ve been spending most of my time at home, applying to jobs. Turns out, life is actually busier when you don’t have a job! Who knew? Anyway, I’ve decided to bring the blog back full force as it really gives me something to look forward to.

That means…I’m back with Weekly Outfit Roundups, Spotlight Saturdays, Music Mondays, and more! And I’m being given some lights that will HOPEFULLY make filming tutorials easier, so I can get back to bringing you those, as well. I’d love to hear in the comments if there’s any kind of content you guys would like to see as I start my blog back up full force. Excited to plunge back into the blog life!

And without further ado, I bring you this year’s first outfit roundup.

Love,

Miss Lark Bahar

 

Thursday’s Look

With Valentine’s Day coming up, I felt pulling my pink wool skirt out to play felt appropriate. As a summer color appearing on a winter material, I generally find it difficult to find a time when wearing it feels right, but this all-pink look is undeniably appropriate for this month!

Saturday’s Look

This outfit was primarily put together to properly show off my new sunnies from Retro Sunnies that I reviewed yesterday on my blog. I wanted something simpler and a bit more retro than vintage, so ended up with this great pairing.

Sunday’s Look

Just a few shopping trips today before heading to my parents’, so figured I’d get a quick wear out of my lil sis’ lavender dress before returning it to her. And what better color to pair with lavender than pink? Got to wear my new-to-me belt, too! Found this baby at a local thrift store, and I ALWAYS geek out when I find a waist belt that fits me. Such a rare occurrence. And of course, since this is my birthday month, I donned my Rapunzel February Disney pin.

WEEKLY OUTFIT ROUNDUP (08/29/2016-09/11/2016)

collage_fotor

These past two weeks have been a bit hectic for my roommate and I for various reasons, so we were able to document fewer outfits of mine. Luckily, two weeks yielded a decent enough number for a roundup post!

Love,

Miss Lark Bahar

Last Monday’s Look

I decided to pull out one of the wiggles I won from a Vivien of Holloway giveaway around Christmas last year as I transition into fall/winter styles. Since this is a bright dress, I don’t have much of a window to wear it since it’s too warm for most months here, but I figure it’s close enough to summer to work for now. It is still in the 100s after all. Side note: I definitely have to acquire some sort of glue to seal the heels of all of my shoes. They really take a beating with all the walking I do.

Last Friday’s Look

I’ve been dying to wear this capri skirt set for ages but the thick brocade material just made it too hot to justify. But just like the outfit above, I’ve been in the autumn mood, so I finally decided to wear em. It’s been so long that I actually forgot how poorly they fit. Really need to take them to the tailor and get the front area taken in and the seat area let out. I actually popped a button at work! And yet there’s so much loose fabric in the front…

This Tuesday’s Look

Again, this outfit was trying to work in a bit more of an autumn-friendly aspect, this time with color-scheme. I realized I’ve not been wearing all of my beloved shorts lately, so decided to plan a darker look with my striped shorts for my brooch review this week.

This Thursday’s Look

Went full-on summer garb with this look, but ah well. It’s a transitional period 😉. I had fun with all the accessorization! I really need to get this dress in autumn-friendly prints.

This Friday’s Look

I honestly have no words for how much I am in love with this vintage dress. I got it awhile ago but didn’t want to wear the wiggle in the heat, so figured I’d save it for autumn-time to give me something to look forward to. I’m so glad I did! I have never had a wiggle that fit me so perfectly since my proportions are so curvy, but this dress is honestly a dream. It feels absolutely amazing on and even has my most coveted of necklines: the wide-set square neckline. Such a beautiful piece. I wish it photographed as beautifully as it looks in person (but prepare for spam anyway).

Outfit Roundup Catch-up/Masterpost: (05/23/2016-07/03/2016)

It’s been more than an entire month since my last roundup! Figured I would put together a giant post as a catch-up.

Enjoy!

05/25/2016

This look was a bit out of the box for me, but I haven’t worn this skirt in ages and liked how the shades of the top matched the skirt when paired with a bright red belt to pull it all together.

I love love love this outfit for a whole slew of reasons, but perhaps the most obvious one is that I so rarely find ways to create purple outfits (this skirt was the only purple item I owned), but I received the purple striped top with the bow tie, the earrings, and the belt all in the same week, and BOOM! Perfectly purple.

Hands down one of my favorite outfits of all time! I just love these colors and everything matches so perfectly top to bottom. I felt so pretty! And this was the first time I took my Pinup Girl Clothing underskirt for a run.

I’m generally not a huge fan of red, white, and blue…but this outfit fit together too seamlessly to ignore! And I’m always glad when a chance to wear this hat arises as I don’t find it terribly versatile.

I adore the sweetness of this outfit! Yellow’s another one of those colors I’m hoping to expand in my wardrobe – particularly yellows of the buttery variety. I’d always felt yellow would look atrocious on me, but I’m so pleasantly surprised.

This was another one of those “I probably wouldn’t be wearing this if I had to walk around at all today” outfits. Pencils are a no-no in 115+ degree weather! I wish I could use this skirt in the spring and summer time to give it the lighter look it deserves, but it’s just too hot normally.

This Monday’s Look

This was probably my favorite look of the week as it incorporated a whole slew of “favorites:” favorite vintage top, favorite Pinup Girl Clothing top, favorite Disney brooch, favorite style of hat – even my coveted peplum “New Look” silhouette. I can earnestly say that I will spend my whole life trying to find more of these vintage Catalina tops. Still a bit heartbroken that I found a pink version but it came with the full play-set and sold almost immediately. Definitely the one that got away.

This Tuesday’s Look

These shorts made their way into my wardrobe this week with the intention of using them for a future Disneybound. Of course then I realized I somehow don’t have nearly enough printed tops to pair them with! Most of my prints are represented in my bottoms. Guess I’ll have to change that….but hey, this outfit matched my new evil eye bracelets from Turkey perfectly!

This Wednesday’s Look

Rainy overcast day means breaking out the “sleeved” shirts! Tried the “stripes as a neutral” look today and I can honestly say I’m in LOVE.  Must acquire striped tops now.  And I love that the red accents on the top matched the belt so well and pulled the look together so perfectly.

First week of summer vacation! Working at noon every day means my outfits generally have to take into account the Arizona sun beating down on me as I walk there. At least my legs will tan? Hard to believe that I was so anti-short even last summer!

Love,

Thursday’s Look

Placed my own PUG order for the first time in over a year and made the purchase of their bright blue peasant top and canvas underskirt. Couldn’t wait to take the peasant top out for a run with my favorite striped shorts! I love that they redesigned it so the bust is larger, but was a bit bummed that the waist also seemed a bit larger and the sleeves a bit tighter (though those might just give with time). This might be the brightest outfit I’ve ever put together! And I was happy to find a use for my vintage yellow scarf.

Took my new 1950s set out for a run today! I’m 95% positive this outfit was cut for a pre-teen (or a small chested teen) as the bust darts start at my armpits…but what a cute freaking set. The shorts fit me perfectly (and I MEAN perfectly…an inch tighter along the legs and hips and I wouldn’t be able to zip them up), and I’m a sucker for anything that’s made to match. Plus, this is the first outing of my Belle Disney pin, my favorite pin! She’s been sitting around waiting to be worn for ages.

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!

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.

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!

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 😉

Better late than never, I say! Had a fun week in terms of attire. Wore some items I haven’t worn in ages!

Love,

Tuesday’s Look

Today’s dress is probably one of my favorite dresses – a gown covered in ballerinas that I managed to find at an amazing price just because a few seams needed to be sewn back together! Sadly, the bust is extremely tight on me, and the waist much too large, but I knew I had to have this piece no matter size issues given the print. I’m a sucker for anything with a ballerina print!

Thursday’s Look

Thursday’s look is perhaps the most authentically 1950s look overall. Funnily enough, this shirt is from the 1990s, but I knew with the help of a bullet bra, it would give me that perfect silhouette over a sweeping skirt that I so love, so I hesitated only a moment before making the $8 purchase – and I’m so glad I made it! Although I’d love to be able to afford all 1930s-1960s true vintage, I find that one can mix and match pieces from different eras as long as the prints, material and cut match the era you wish to emulate.

Also decided to don one of two Harry Potter brooches I own as I’ve been re-watching the series again as I often do when desperate for distraction. Sadly, Hedwig rarely gets worn as her design wasn’t very well thought through and she falls sideways pretty immediately.

Friday’s Look

This look is a reiteration of one I wore earlier this year in the winter time when I discovered my strong love for full outfits of matching red! Just has such a great feel to it – I love the effect.

Saturday’s Look

I chose Saturday’s look knowing I’d be going out for a big steak dinner later in the day. My Vivien of Holloway capris fit me perfectly while remaining stretchy enough to accommodate a growing waistline ;). I ended up matching the restaurant with my gingham  top, so it ended up being the perfect outfit for the outing.

Sunday’s Look

This look was born out of a need to wear a large hat to hide my falling wet set, and the fact that I knew I wouldn’t be spending much time in the sun or much time moving my arms around. This pair of jumpsuit culottes is one of the coolest vintage finds in my wardrobe. Although the gal I bought it from and myself have a suspicion it’s a 1970s-1980s outfit, I love that it emulates a 1930s nautical look – and I’m generally not huge on nautical-inspired items. Sadly, this is another number that’s far too tight in the bust, (though this one fits my waist beautifully!) and it’s a bit too heavy for hotter Tucson weather while being impossible to layer over for colder periods, so it rarely gets worn.

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

Photoshoot with P. Bencomo Photography

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Hello everyone!

This past weekend I had the pleasure of partaking in a photoshoot with Phillip Bencomo and three gorgeous vintage cars! Although I’ve shared a few on Instagram and my Facebook page already, I wanted to post all of my favorites here. It was a very hot and sunny day in Tucson (and boy were those cars burning by the time noon rolled around), but it was such a pleasure working with Phillip again for my second official photoshoot. As a gal who takes most of her photos with the help of her best friend at the back of a library or in front of her house, it was wonderful getting to work with lights and props – and seeing the gorgeous blue shade of one of the cars, I knew I had to break out my new vintage swimsuit! Although I was hesitant up until the very last moment since I’ve always struggled with self-consciousness about my legs (and of course, my pantyhose ripped the first time I put them on), I took the plunge, and boy am I glad I did!
Hope you enjoy!

Love,

Miss Lark Bahar
