The Girl Can’t Help It Lookbook

Every time I walk into The Girl Can’t Help It I feel as if I was transported through time. With bold red walls, racks and racks of pristine and unique vintage, and accessories that will make you gasp, this store easily sets itself apart from its neighbors. One of my favorite vintage purchases happened there. I decided to start the search for my wedding dress at Sparkle and Jasja’s store, and in less than 30 minutes, walked out with a gorgeous mesh sequin dress that was perfect for a Hawaii beach wedding. Ever since then, I have been hooked.


As I was casually browsing their online store, I decided to put together some of my favorite pieces that you can currently purchase there.


The first thing I noticed about this dress were the sleeves! Sheer chiffon and in red too? Pinch me, it’s too perfect!


I adore this flirty number! The sleeves, the length, and the fabric pattern just makes me want to dance all night. And who is that lady modeling for you there? 😉


Oh if only I had the chest to fill out this dress like this lovely model does! You can start planning ahead for your New Year’s dress, because I’m pretty sure THAT is how you are supposed to start the year off.


With Viva right around the corner, I’m pretty sure this swimsuit will be snagged up in no time! Imagine sitting poolside in this stunner!


I am a sucker for asymmetrical cuts. And ladies, who doesn’t need another elegant black dress? They are classic, slimming, and always fashionable!


Although these are my current favorites from their online store, I know Sparkle has some hidden gems in the store. So if you find yourself in San Diego, be sure to stop in and tell them Eva Mae sent you! <3 Till next time!
