Vivien of Holloway 1950s Halterneck Dress | Review by Jess W Pinup in Las Vegas NV

The 1950s Halterneck White Blue Rose Dress From Vivien of Holloway is such a beautiful spring dress. The blue hues are so bright and cheery, I was instantly in a great mood trying this beauty on!


The 27″ full circle skirt sits below the knee and is perfect for a petticoat. I chose a white one to pair it with from my collection of petticoats. If you are purchasing this dress I think it would look amazing with the light blue petticoat available on the VOH website as well. don’t you?!


The Built in boned bodice on this gorgeous dress Is something I have never seen in a dress. It certainly creates an amazing look and fit. The dress is still super comfy so don’t worry about that. I wore it all day and did not feel constricted at all, even riding in the car for a couple of 20 and 30 minute trips. This dress is very well made. The sateen fabric looks and feels lovely.


The dress is a fixed Halterneck, so no tying it up in the back which I think makes it sit nicely under your hair. Just don’t forget about this feature when you are styling your hair as it will have to be pulled over. The boning in the bodice helps to keep the back of the dress flat without bunching or sagging.


The low V cut is another flattering feature of this dress. Plenty of room and no need for a bra as everything is held in place with the built in boning. Did I mention how much I LOVE the boning?! Love it!


You can find the size guide on their website HERE which goes by your measurements so be sure to have those ready when ordering!

Normalize Breastfeeding | Las Vegas Photographer

I am so happy to see all of the beautiful nursing photos flooding social media lately. I wanted to share one too!

 ‪#‎normalizebreastfeeding‬ is one of my very favorite hash tags. ? I have breastfed all 5 of my sons. Nash is the only one i have pumped and alternated bottled breast milk and breastfeeding with. I remember being so nervous thinking if I pumped and gave him a bottle maybe he would not want to nurse anymore. I had to get back to work just a couple weeks after he was born. My business is how I support my family. I refused to pump until the doctor said nipple confusion would be less likely. (Around 4 weeks) So Nash and Joel Inglese came to the studio with me while I worked and my amazing clients understood if I needed to take a break to nurse him. Nash is 10 months old now and I know he will be a hard one to wean. He finds such comfort in nursing and knows exactly how to get me to stop everything and snuggle him up to nurse. Choosing to breastfeed my sons is one of the best decisions I have ever made. It is one of the most challenging and rewarding things I have done in my life. I nurse in public. I have had good reactions and bad ones as well. In the end we should all try to live our life how we see is fit. Be happy. Be you! <3


If you would like a breastfeeding photo session please contact me at I would love to capture special moments of you and your child(ren) <3 XOXO

Crystal & Adam <3 | Las Vegas NV Wedding Photographer

I am always so happy to get asked to be a part of someones special day. I got the opportunity to do Crystals Makeup and hair for her big day and then stick around to take photos of the wedding too! <3

Crystal has some rawking green hair so I was really excited about that.  We did a beautiful vintage inspired updo and classic 50’s makeup. She looks just stunning right?!


Her baby girls are just gorgeous and so sweet. 🙂


A little silly too… 😛


The venue was The Neon Museum here in Las Vegas, NV.  Which made for such a cool retro backdrop for this super fun couple. <3


AND of course, the officiant was none other than Elvis!


They chose the Lady Luck sign to have their ceremony in front of. <3


Crystal put together this rad bouquet:


And I absolutely love Adam’s ring don’t you?!


First married kiss:


Such a beautiful family. 🙂


Congratulations again Crystal & Adam. Wishing you all the very best! XOXO

Miss Candyfloss Judy-Dora dress | Review by Jess W Pinup in Las Vegas

I was so excited to receive the Judy-Dora Tartan summer dress from Miss Candyfloss. The color combination is just perfect and the gold thread has a beautiful sparkle to it which was a fun surprise. The fabric has a great stretch to it and is very lightweight and comfortable which is perfect for a summer dress. The pleated bust and low V cut neckline is very flattering and provides plenty of room without looking sloppy or baggy. (Side note- This dress is SUPER easy to Nurse baby in!)


The length of this dress is just lovely. It falls below the knee and there is plenty of room for a petticoat of course! I decided to pair this dress with a baby pink petticoat which I think brought out some of the pinkish hues in the dress and went quite well, don’t you?


I am wearing a size small, Miss Candyfloss has a size chart HERE which is very accurate in my opinion. My waist measures as an XS and even with this dress being open hip I went ahead with a size small for the larger bust measurement.


CE2A4592C24webThis dress comes in sizes XS-5XL and is on sale right now, so get it while you can. It is a perfect summer dress and would be a great choice for this years 19th annual viva las vegas rockabilly weekend which is quickly approaching as well!
