Photo by the amazing Keith J. Carson. This is one of the photos from my vintage pin-up shoot a few months ago. Want to see the painted version of this picture? Come to my show at Coffee & Crema here in Greenville tomorrow night. The reception is from 6-9pm, and music will be provided by the wonderful Stephanie Fagan.

First of all, I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who came out to Oil and Rouge at art & light on Friday (and there were a lot of you!) The event was such a huge success, and was everything I hoped it would be when I started planning over 10 months ago. The gallery was packed the entire night, and we actually had to start asking people to leave around 9:45pm.
Beautiful clothing from Threads in Time Vintage clothing.
Blue Moss Jewelry.
The amazing food by Brick Street Cafe.
Paul Hoke from Upstate Swing Dance not only kept the vintage tunes playing all night, he even danced one with me.
My partner in crime, Shantel Lowe.
A closer look at my hair and the beautiful dress my mom helped me make. I know the hair is difficult to see because it is so dark, but I didn’t quite get the technique down for the victory rolls. But, I did twist it and pile it all on top of my head in a way that I have seen in a lot of old photos.
All in all, the whole night was perfect! Thanks for helping to make it a huge success!
And, in case you are wondering if the blog is going to disappear now that the event is over, don’t worry! I will keep bringing you all of my favorite vintage inspirations for as long as my little brain can keep searching them out!
We spent most of the day hanging the work for tomorrow’s vintage affair! I am so excited that it is finally here! This event has been in the works for at least 10 months. Here is a sneak peek of how the gallery looks. Want a closer look, plus great food, music, and amazing raffle prizes? Then come out to the art & light Gallery tomorrow night!

I was really excited to see the new issue of G Magazine come out last week with the ad for Oil and Rouge: A Vintage Affair! G Magazine has graciously agreed to be a sponsor for the show, and printed a beautiful, eye catching ad. The final details are starting to fall in to place, and I am super excited about the show!
