Move over, Peggy Olsen. There’s a new copywriter in town . . . oh, goodness me! How fun would it have been to have lived in the 1960s?! I mean sure there were many more equality issues than we have today for us, ladies :/ but the style back then was to absolutely to die for!
Since we are about to close on the first week of August, I thought it was time to share with you this month’s 60s look for the historical 9-month fashionable countdown for the La Valencia Hotel’s Hot Pink 90th Celebration! For those of you who are a little late to the game, the Cliffnotes version is I was hired this year by the La Valencia Hotel to both style/model for their 2016 birthday campaign, which has been a very stylish experience thus far AND, well, very pink ;) see the hotel opened in 1926 and is celebrating it’s 90th this December. Thus far, we have shared with you photoshoots from the 2000s, 90s, 80s, and 70s . . . and just when I think #teampink can’t outdo the decade from the month before, we go and have a wonderful photoshoot like this!
For the sixties, I wanted to be very Mad Men-esque [of course] and embody the ladies we grew to love on that fantastic television show we are STILL yearning for more of. In order to make this happen, I decided to hit up Fashion Week San Diego‘s 2015/2016 designer, Timmithea, who had created the dress I am wearing for her 2015 runway show. Isn’t it perfect?! From there, the rest was easy-peasy = pearls, my grandmother’s white gloves, and two pairs of panty hoses . . . VOILA! I’m ready for a dirty martini and a shrimp cocktail. Lol.
My little Nella Sue even made an appearance for the photoshoot. Why? Well, did you know that the La Valencia Hotel was a pet-friendly hotel? Yep, they sure are and that’s one of the biggest reasons why I love to stay there. “The Pink Lady” understands the needs of us furparents. They are right above a park, they have water bowls, and even little pink bandanas with “La Valencia Hotel” printed on them to help accessorize your pet. How rad is that?!
And speaking of rad, I have to give my hairstylist, Rachel Galati, from TWIG hair lounge a MAJOR shout-out because without her, these looks would be no where near the perfection they are. Her talent simply amazes me and I feel so incredibly lucky that she was happy to come on board for this pink ride.
When’s the last time you’ve visited the La Valencia Hotel? A week? A month? Ever? If you haven’t been there lately or maybe never been, it’s a must, ESPECIALLY with their new Hot Pink at 90 Celebration Package! They’ve also just hired a new Executive Chef. SO, if a gorgeous hotel with oceanviews, fantastic food, and great service is your thing, let’s just say you already know where you should be staying :) have a wonderful weekend, y’all, and don’t forget to save-the-date for the La Valencia Hotel’s 90th “Roaring 20s” Birthday Party! It’s going to be a hoot.
