  2. It’s finally here!!!!!!!!  HOUSEWIVES ON FIRE size guide!  This size guide does not apply to Gatsby Flapper dresses since they are a specialty item.  However, this guide will help you pick out your 1950s style swinging,  circle skirt and retro savvy cocktail dresses! 

     
  3. There were so many beautiful cars at the Dead Mans Curve car show last weekend!  I found this gorgeous Ford Model A, manufactured during 1927 - 1931.  This car served as a perfect backdrop for my Housewives On Fire Gatsby flapper dresses.  The car owner was kind enough to let me strut my stuff & climb all over this historical beauty, showing off my latest designs.  Got any costume parties planned???   These dresses are beautiful and ready to ship!  Message me through my store for details…

  7. This new* “classic” circle skirt made in quality, wool blend suiting, comes in black & grey.  This skirt is called the “classic” because the hemline falls below the knee giving it a vintage feel.  Paired up with a Graphic Housewives crop top tee the look is clean, modern and classic.  These pieces are the first development of a basics collection that can be mixed and matched with some of your own closet favorites.

  10. New* Graphic Print Tops have been added to the Housewives On Fire collection!  Super soft one size jersey crop top printed with rare images of housewives from different time periods.  This design embodies my love for vintage collectables.  When I’m not sewing or taking in a show, I spend my time watching old movies & dishing through old photographs - a major source of inspiration.

  13. Handmade necklaces, threaded with satin ribbon and knotted.  Thee perfect accessory to complement this Housewives On Fire Gatsby look.  

     
  14. A cluster of gerber daisies were used as an accessory for a Housewives On Fire night on the town look,  in our “City Street Chic” photo shoot.  Modeled by Blair Hope McSorley & photographed by Oye Diran, these hand made treasures complete the custom look.   Gerber daisies, are my favorite because of the vast array of beautiful & bold color they can be found in.  Hair flowers are not only lovely,  they are a great accessory for the gals that don’t have time for the muss & fuss over pin curls and finger waves. 

     
  15. "City Street Chic" photo shoot with Blair Hope McSorley.  This picture was taken by Oye Diran in New York City on the corner of St. Marks Place & 2nd ave.  Blair is wearing a Housewives On Fire custom Gatsby dress.  This dress is made from a pale blue vintage vanity fair slip, trimmed from head to toe in over 25 yards of fringe.  I was torn between showing this as an avant garde wedding dress but ended up styling it as a night out in NYC party dress.  Black stilettos with a bundle of pop colored gerber daisy hair clips did just the trick!
