in the fashion industry, everything goes retro except the prices.

Fashion is always evolving. The fun of a new trend is almost as fun as rediscovering an old one! I love classic, retro-inspired styles the most. There is something about the Audrey's and Marilyn's that really encapsulate beauty. Lately, I've been so inspired by retro style that I had to re-create a classic makeup look!








What has been inspiring you lately?
