A little while ago I told all you all about our trip up to Frankie and Gerry’s Retro studio. I have only fond memories of that long weekend, and thought it was time for Part 2 and some of the greats shots from another set. This time I bring you the pink and blue 1950s-inspired kitchen!
Now, I am a massive fan of pottering about in the kitchen and so I was right at home on this second fabulous set! It did, however, call for a change of outfit. So off I went to raid the Glamour Bunny rails once more. I settled on a two pieces this time; the pink high waist capri pants and the Cynthia pinup rockabilly top (also in pink)…because one’s outfit must match one’s surroundings for such a shoot right ladies?
Here I am wearing the fuscia pink Capri pants in a small (Waist – 26, Hip – 37, Length – approx 23″). It is important to note that these pants are a beautiful stretchy fabric, so although they really nip you in at the waist, not uncomfortably so and they are actually really comfy and easy to move about in. They retail at a fair £45.00 and have such a rockabilly feel that I absolutely love them!
I teamed these bright fuscia pink pants with the pastel pink Cynthia pinup rockabilly top. This top has less stretch than the pants, however I found the sizing to be in keeping with the Glamour Bunny size chart and once again I went for the small (bust 34″ Waist 26-27″ Hips 37). This top sits high on the waist and so compliments the high waisted Capri pants perfectly. The top is £48.00 but the quality is superb. And if pink is not your thing…you can also grab it in pastel blue as well!
What better a way to complete this outfit than my matching pale pink hair scarf from eBay, white plastic earings and bangle from a vintage market and some fluffy “slippers” for an afternoon of baking.
If you want to know a bit more about how I styled my hair and makeup for this shoot, I talk about this in my previous posts Frankie and Gerry’s Retro Studio Part 1 – Embracing My Inner Mad Men’s Joan Holloway with the Glamour Bunny Maggie Dress and Face-to-Face: Pin-up Makeup for Different Skin Types and Tones – Florence Flounce.
Wow, what a fun day at Frankie and Gerry’s this was indeed. And what sunning images darktechsupport managed to take! Stay tuned for further posts in this series from both Papow and I! And if any of you can recommend any other retro studios around the country we would be delighted to hear your views!
