The Vintage Rose Of Summer by Hannabal Marie

 Hellou ladies and gents
I have been spending too much time over at my facebook with posting and whatnot, so I kind of forgot about this blog for a while, but I had to put a stop to that. 
I will be posting more here and redirecting my fans and friends from FB over to this blog instead of just posting. 
So yeah, thought I'd let you guys know I'm still here...I'm still kicking it! (haha)

This post isn't anything crazy nor huge, just got some nice nude pumps and found this lovely vintage dress from a thrift shop, so I just wanted to create a look with 'em. 
I also wanted to test out this nude palette I got from Ebay. 
So yeah, all this just for your viewing pleasures.

 Such a cute dress, I especially love the collar! 
It's hard to tell from these crappy photos but it's teeny tiny little blue/green/yellow/white flowers. (Hence the post's name- also, the name I choose for this post is supposed to be a play on Tom Waits' song called "The last rose of summer" Nothing extremely clever but eh, I liked the ring to it! XD

Just some full body shots, sorry for the quality but it was night time when I decided to take pix! haha

| Dress: Vintage Dress from a thrift store in Lodi | Necklace: Peridot "Birthstone" Necklace from Ebay | Earrings: Golden 
 Owl Earrings from a little family owned shop in Lodi. | Wig: Curly Brown Wig from Ebay | Shoes&Tights: Cream pumps from Kmart & Retro Pinup Tights from Ebay | Belts: Felt brown belt I had for years & Chain Cross Belt I also had for many many years.

Now, onto the pumps:
Here are the pumps I mentioned. I got them at our local Kmart, because Kmart is close to home and quite frankly, I enjoy the prices! (So hush!) haha But I fell in the love with the way they looked and the color and such. I would have gotten them in Black but I own so many in Black already, I wanted to switch it up a bit with a color I have never owned. It's like a cream color, very beautiful in person...These photos simply don't do them justice!

Because I wanted to pose, I did so. For you...just for you! XD HA!

ANDDD...I also wanted to see what these pumps would look like with my lace socks. Yep, Purdy cuteeee! <3

I also did a makeup look and thus, this post should also include some up close facial shots. I delivered:

Like I said, I had a palette that was collecting dust, so I went ahead and played with some of the browns. And by "some" I mean...most of 'em..actually! haha!
 The palette for your looking eyes. In case, for some odd reason, you thought I was lying! haha! Just look at 'em....look at the beautiful colors...makes ya want to lick 'em, huh? HA!

And now...we go onto my work of art...or something close to that...HA!
 In this look I just went for a classic vintage beauty, with my little "heart mole" to match.

And because I didn't want to mess up my mug when I finished with my "shoot", I decided to play around with my accessories a bit. Here I am with the belt as a headpiece. I wish I owned a turban, I'd look like a bad ass future teller!

Anywho, thanks for reading and catching up and all that...jazz? Yes, Jazz! :)
