For my first feature, we start with the gorgeous
At left, Miss Ruby is wearing a vintage A-line dress which adds appropriate cover-up for grandma's approval but also maintains a sexy allure with a form-fitting waist to flatter her figure. And you know that grandma has a thing or two to say about today's fashion. Mmhmm, I can hear all of your abuelas chiming in now. One is trying to throw a chancla! Ayy they get all worked up. Choose a bright color like this satin blue and match it with understated shoes. Here Miss Ruby is pictured with two stylin' gentlemen, Dave Temple and Sabino Gutierrez who run Clever Vintage Clothing in LA and look like they're ready for a chilly summer night on the beach. Where's the yacht boys?
Ruby Champagne Q&A
What make-up item can you never do without?
- Eyeliner! Just a simple sweep of black liner and I feel I can at least go outside!
What do you fuss over the most when getting ready: hair, makeup, outfit or shoes?
- It depends why I'm going out. If it's just to go run errands or somewhere that I anticipate standing/walking a lot, I'll fuss over the most comfy shoes, then outfit. If it's a social gathering, I'll put most time in the outfit, then hair.
Which are your favorite pair of shoes and why?
Black ballet flats. They're cute and comfortable and pretty much can work with everything!
Preferred lip color?
Who inspires you?
Sometimes when I dress up, I look to classic Latin Cinema stars' style i.e. Lupe Velez, Maria Felix, Rosita Quintana, and Ninon Sevilla.
Yes, we see the resemblance! See pics below.
