J&O Crafty Customer: Roxanne Ojeda of Retro Roxy

roxy-retros, jandofabrics

Over a week ago we put out a call to our Facebook family to send us pics of their most creative Valentine’s Day crafts, but to much of our surprise, Cupid’s arrow didn’t seem to strike the hearts of many, and so our campaign narrowed down to ONE.

Roxanne Ojeda of Retro Roxy submitted one of her Valentines themed retro styled pin up girl aprons designed with eXtra special dinner plans in mind. Flouncy skirts and ruffled fold down smock  in assorted complimentary prints and color palate make her creations uniquely distinguishable among the rest. When not making custom aprons and specialty crafts for admirers, her smoke-free, pet-free, pattern-free environment sets the backdrop for a lot of quirky, retro styled creations to flow thru in a very organic way.

A Handsome Halloween

As with our Top Five Women’s Halloween Pop Culture Costume Ideas, we tried to pull as much inspiration for our top five guy costumes from what is happening in the media. Our favorite idea for this year is the classic pilot look inspired by the new show Pan Am. We can’t think of a guy who wouldn’t get a second glance in a well fitted pilots uniform. And the best part is, this costume can easily be achieved by attaching some thin gold trim to an existing suit jacket.


#1: Pilot

Inspiration: ABC’s Pan Am
