Black To Sass
Jumping from uniform job to uniform job I never was one to worry too much about style.
Going from chef whites to a black esthetician’s smock, I was more into comfort than worrying
about how I looked. Jeans and a graphic t was how I rolled. I kept my hair short and easy,
or pulled back in a clip or ponytail, some days not doing more than a quick brush through.
And I didn’t own any makeup until I was 25..
All this ended the day I saw my first modern 50’s pin up/rockabilly girl. I was in love! With
the style that is. My boyfriend at the time was not keen on the whole look. But my situation

My new style was coming along nicely. But it was hard to find the right look in any of the
local stores, until one day someone told me about a little spot. A girl had opened a
Rockabilly/Pin up clothing store in her house. So I jumped in my car and struck out on an
adventure to find it. From that day forth Vixens Boutique has been my happy place.
The addiction started; tops, dresses, shoes, home decor, and more dresses. Up to date my
favorite brand has been Hell Bunny. The dresses always fit perfect. And most of them have
POCKETS! Who doesn’t love pockets on a dress!
Recently, after one last uniform job, I am in a position that allows me to wear all my pretty
clothes. As the winter weather is fast approaching it is time to get a new wardrobe inspired
by the 50s and 60s. I can’t wait to perfect my winter office look!
