❤♥❤ Valentine's Day Special❤♥❤

I have never really been into the Holidays. I love Fall and the warmth of Thanksgiving & Winter and the glimmering Christmas lights and of course snow. I think I love the time of year more than the actual celebrations. 

Valentine's Day is a holiday that I don't get the fuss. I do however like the child like version of Valentine's, the candy hearts, be mine valentine's, and the red and pink everywhere! I like the sweetness of it all. Unfortunately, most do not appreciate the simple meaning of love. They often think presents, presents, presents or I have to have a date! Whether it's stressing over gifts to give or pressuring one with what they should get you. Missing all the childlike fun that could be had. For me, when I am in a relationship around this time of year, I don't do the gift thing or the pressure of doing it up all big. Instead, the day should just be full of love and fun! My favorite thing to do is dress up and spend the day and evening with loved ones enjoying the city you live in. Concerts, dancing, and all around silliness:) Even if you're not technically "in love" that shouldn't stop you from having just simple fun with your significant other or loved ones. Step back, take the pressure off and just enjoy the happiness that fills the air this time of year. 

So, in honor of this time of year, Dethrose Vintage is sharing the LOVE with our customers and giving you all a little Valentine's. 15% off the shop from 2/1/12 ~ 2/14/12 !! Simply enter promo code, BEMYVALENTINE at checkout and receive 15% your entire purchase!

Hollywood Blondes

My hair has been every color of the rainbow. Dark red, bright red, purple, blueish black, highlighted, low lighted, dark blonde, ash blonde, you name it, I've had it. 3 years ago I went platinum and I don't know, it just felt right. I'm naturally blonde, but it's that yucky blah blonde. As I get older, the darker it becomes. So pale blonde just feels fresher to me, brighter and happier:)

These are the classic blondes who inspire me to be a classic blonde without looking cheap.

My personal favorite blonde starlet. She was so talented and so hilarious.
Grace. Not a typical photo usually shown for Grace, but to me it shows her style and elegance so perfectly.

And of Course...
One of my favorite pictures of Marilyn. So natural and beautiful.

These are the Hollywood classic blondes that influence my locks everyday.  No blonde bimbos here, just classic elegance.
