Mrs. V. discovers Belsira

Mrs. V. discovers Belsira

  Oh gentle reader, do I have a treat for you today! A month or so ago, I stumbled upon the website of Belsira, a brand with their own unique twist on the pinup and retro fashion.

Atomic Lace

Atomic Lace

Oh gentle reader, do I have a thing for glitter, and for all those things creepy and cute. And if you give me creepy and cute at the same time, I am prone to high-pitched noises of delight.

Rockabilly Pinup

Rockabilly Pinup

It’s no secret I am a big fan of vintage, despite my huge love for all things dark and gloomy. I think it happens to a lot of gothlings as they grow older: Most contemporary fashion is bland and uninteresting, and our clubbing gear isn’t all that well suited for work and an increasing number of formal occasions we end up attending.
