Fashion Friday in Cape GIrardeau, MO

Fashion Friday was a fantastic and very exciting event in our smallish college town. An event created by the talented and I'm sure soon to be famous, Jory Rapps. It was to support local business and there were really cool things happening! You could walk the red carpet, get sketched by local artist Kelly Hughes, and get some great deals. The event was inspired by Vogue's Fashion Night Out. Jory interned for Donna cool is that? And what a dear he was to work with! He went to great lengths to get Belle Blossoms there and for us to be comfortable. When we woke up to pouring rain, he got us a spot inside which happened to be in my favorite antique and vintage clothing store Pastimes AntiquesThankfully! Since we ladies just can't get our hair wet.  

Here are a few photos from our day at the Belle Blossoms booth. 

This is me. Heather. I'm the owner and designer of Belle Blossoms.  

Here is my sketch by Kelly Hughes

This is the photo that the local newspaper took of us. We have our Pin-up girls, Tameeka (in the black and red), Samantha (in the black and yellow), and Raelen (in the purple). 

Our lovely Pin-Up Raelen works with us packaging and wrapping the Blossom of the Month and also has her own photography business called Photography by Raelen. 

Our Pin-Ups Tameeka and Samantha have a really cute company called Oh Sweet Baby Cakes where they do baby shower planning and make super cute and original diaper cakes. 

The lovely Kyleigh modeled one of our veiled fascinator hats. 

Even though the weather was terrible we had such a fun time. My girls enjoyed being pin-ups for a day. I dress like this all of the time but it was sure fun to have people to do it with :) Hopefully Fashion Friday will be an annual event.

Antique Store Finds

I found some great things while antiquing last week. I normally have a very difficult time finding vintage clothing. It is always too small. Just when I was becoming convinced that everyone that lived during the mid 20th century was a size 4, I found a great vintage dress and a couple of other even more exciting things.

The dress is black and has small ruffles along the hemline, sleeves, and high collar.

It looks great with a wide red belt and this crinoline slip that I found at the same store

It's bright red. It looks very faded in the picture. It isn't. I've been wanting a crinoline slip for a long time and finally found this one.

And I think possibly my favorite find of the day...

Since I'm slightly obsessed with hair accessories, I was very happy to find this 1920's fascinator.

I love antiquing!

January Blossom of the Month

The BOM for January was the White Carnation. I chose the white carnation to be the January BOM because it's the birth month flower for the month and because it reminds me of a snowball. I thought it was the perfect flower for such a cold and dreary month.




Feathers of the Month

I hope everyone is enjoying their January blossom! The clue for February is...Eleanor Roosevelt has one named after her. It's not "her" flower that you will be getting, but the type of flower. The February Blossom is a very fun flower that I really think you all will love!
