Oh America!

There is a special beauty on the 50s - 60s aesthetics, the colors, furniture, women clothes and hairdos, architecture, the cars <3 , in a word everything! maybe in another life I was born at that time. 
Today I wanted to make a special tribute to America on those beautiful years.. actually Im not wearing vintage clothes, except for the scarf, Im a 2012 /1950s americana. 
Last year I made a mini shooting inspired on Lucille Ball, check it out here.

Vintage Scarf / Chicwish Skirt

Giant Vintage retro Inspired sunglasses

Blanco (old) collar

Encuentro especial belleza en la estética de los 50s -60s, los colores, muebles, la ropa y peinados de las mujeres, la arquitectura, los coches <3 bueno en una palabra todo! tal vez en otra vida nací en esa época. 
Digamos que el post de hoy es un pequeño tributo a esos maravillosos años de America.. de hecho hoy no llevo ropa vintage , excepto por el pañuelo, soy una americana 1950 versión 2012. 
Os acordáis de estas fotos del año pasado, inspiradas en Lucille Ball.

Great post! I love the 50's retro style and you update it beautifully! The lady dragons with the pompoms are adorable, I might be tempted to get me some too!

AS for the software recommendations you were asking me for... I am using Paint.net which is a free software. I find it very limited because I used to work professionally as a colourist (did some stuff for Marvel Comics, for example, while working at a studio) and as you can imagine it was a lot more complex than what you saw on my blog. I think that your frustration with Photoshop might be the case of not knowing all the tricks (I don't know all of them but I did learn a lot when I was working with it and I ended up enjoying it a lot) and because of that you may not be using it to its full potential. It's a great software with millions of possibilities! I would suggest that you try and follow a few tutorials, that usually helps.
I can also recommend Corel Paint, it' s a fun software that mimics real materials- the finished work can look like charcoal, felt tips, oils, pastels, you name it and you can even change the way it looks by choosing different supports- canvas, papers, etc. With the advantage of the ctrl+z option, which you don't really have in real life!

Hope this is helpful to you and let me know how you get on!
