Tropical 1940s Florals from Karina Dresses

I think by now we all know my obsession with 1940's styling is well and truly beginning to thrive. As I've been shifting out 1950's items from my wardrobe that I knew I wouldn't wear anymore, I've been adding in more and more 1940's inspired items to my wardrobe and I've been absolutely loving the… Continue reading Tropical 1940s Florals from Karina Dresses

Red hot curves in Vivacious Vixen Apparel

Curves are something that have been a part of my life since I was a teen. I developed relatively early in my teens and while my body has changed considerably since then, the fact I've been curvy has continued to be the case. Now days, I try and dress to flatter my curves as best… Continue reading Red hot curves in Vivacious Vixen Apparel

A little black dress. Something so very timeless, classic and sexy about it, yet its something that up until recently has been incredibly under-represented in my wardrobe. In reality, I actually tend to steer clear of black. I find it to be a bit too bland for my liking and I prefer brighter happier colours.… Continue reading

Summer Swing ~ The Harriet Dress from Dolly and Dotty

There's something about a swing skirt teamed with a petticoat that is inherently fun. I've mentioned before that I have a habit of twirling in empty car parks and swishing my petticoat on purpose as I walk through the shops and some days I do truly miss wearing them in my daily life, as now… Continue reading Summer Swing ~ The Harriet Dress from Dolly and Dotty

Spring blooms with the Adelaide Dress by Lindy Bop

I'm an absolute sucker for florals, which is actually kind of funny in its own way. Let me explain as there are certain things the interwebs doesn't know about this pinup. So basically, I don't like dirt...kind of like I don't like dust. The texture on my skin of either really used to upset me… Continue reading Spring blooms with the Adelaide Dress by Lindy Bop

Vintage Vibes in the Megan Dress from Karina Dresses

  Since the middle of last year, I've been having a growing obsession with the 1940's. Its not secret. I've talked about it before. I find women of the 1940's to be incredibly strong, sassy and badass. Women who were used to a man supporting the family going to work building planes and other equipment… Continue reading Vintage Vibes in the Megan Dress from Karina Dresses

Pretty in pink while taking the B.A.I.T ~ Reviewing the Halina shoes from Royal Vintage Shoes

  Do you want to know a secret? Promise not to tell? Well when I was growing up....I actually didn't like pink all the much. I lived in blue. It was my colour. Growing up I had a deep fascination with the ocean and blue just seemed to be my way of expressing that. I… Continue reading Pretty in pink while taking the B.A.I.T ~ Reviewing the Halina shoes from Royal Vintage Shoes

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas ~ The Voodoo Vixen Bernadette Dress

Living in Australia, you can kind of feel a bit out of tune with the rest of the world when Christmas rolls around. The Northern Hemisphere, in the throws of winter is for the most part sharing their winter Christmas posts of sweaters and mittens and snowmen, warm fires and snow angels. I’ve always dreamed… Continue reading I’m dreaming of a white Christmas ~ The Voodoo Vixen Bernadette Dress

Sunflowers in Spring ~ the Bianca Dress from Voodoo Vixen

Summer time.  Its coming.  Here in Australia, we cannot escape it. Summer has only been here for a couple of days and its already sweltering. With a hot hot sun, humidity and a mostly hot wind, I've been on the hunt for versatile dresses I can wear to work or out and about that are… Continue reading Sunflowers in Spring ~ the Bianca Dress from Voodoo Vixen
