Picnic on the Farm!

This beautiful and stylish dress is by Miss Candyfloss  I love wearing this brand, as I find there clothing, especially there dresses are very comfortable to wear, constructed to a high quality and fit really well on me.
This dress is the Ronja-Rose-Sleeveless Daisy Print Picnic Dress.  I love the red and white together. Although I especially adore the gingham/daisy print on the top and bottom of this dress and on the matching belt.
This dress is sleeveless (is great for a picnic on a summer's day) it has a hidden side zip, a pleated bust-line and the neck-line in V shaped.  You can wear this dress with or without a petticoat - I choose without to take these photos for my blog.  
Sizes range from XS to 2XL and it retails on the Miss Candyfloss website for $134.20 (US) or $172 (Aus) plus shipping costs.  It's made out of 62% polyester, 32% viscose and 6% spandex and is made in Transylvania, Romania.
Accessories Include:
Sandals from Bait Footwear
Red wicker handbag is from Pinup Girl Clothing
White hat is from Target Australia 
Hair-flowers are by Shazam Pinup Hair Flowers 
Brooch is by Erstwilder 
Bangles from Susan Jane Jewellery 

 These photos for my blog were taken on a private property near Maryborough, Queensland. There  were a number of different backgrounds I could use for my photos for example old sheds, trees, fences and an old red pickup truck.  I really do love finding new locations to take my photos at!
After having about six week's off from blogging I'm slowly getting back into it, as I do have a number of outfits I have to blog over the coming weeks.
Over the last six weeks I've attended a few pinup/vintage festivals and pageants. I coordinated my first ever pinup competition for the Rockin' Maryborough Vintage Festival, in September. That I received positive feedback from.
I purchased myself a brand new car, a 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer (black edition). Also my beautiful cat Brandy of 21 years old had to be put to sleep, last week! :(
At the moment I'm getting excited as I'm going on holidays soon, I'm flying over to New Zealand next week and I'll be going to The Very Vintage Day Out in Auckland next weekend.  I also hope to take blog photos over in NZ as well.
I'll let you all know how my New Zealand trip goes, after I return back to Australia!
Also we have been getting a lot of rain, this is very unusual for this time of the year.  It hasn't stopped raining here for about three to four days now!  I had wanted to take photos again over the weekend but the rain put a stop to that!  :(

Until next time!

Yellow and Pink!

For this week's blog post I'm featuring another wonderful outfit by Vivien of Holloway
I do love wearing and owning pieces from Vivien of Holloway they're definitely one of my favorite vintage inspired brands, because of  value for money and their unique, one of a kind outfits.
These yellow 1940's inspired swing trousers are made from a light 100% crepe material, that has some stretch to it.  The pants are high-waisted, have four side buttons to get in and out of and have a cute little pocket on the right hand side.  Nearly all sizes are now sold out on the website in this exact colour, though there are other sizes left in other colours, for example purple, black and teal.  I own at least five pairs of Vivien of Holloway's swing trousers, in other colours and fabrics. They are so comfortable, yet stylish to wear.  You can purchase a pair for £59 ($97 Aus) plus postage.
The blouse I'm wearing is also by Vivien of Holloway it's the Gypsy top in a pink and yellow, sea sucker fabric.  I do love pink and yellow together, so I was happy that this top goes well with these yellow swing trousers.  The top has little capped sleeves and elasticated sleeves, neck and waist band.  I found this top quite comfortable to wear throughout the day.  It's available to purchase for £28 ($46 Aus) and does come in other colours and lengths for example the longer style, that I'm wearing and the midi and cropped style.  Note: a lot of sizes have sold out, due to the fact there are only a limited amount of sizes released at a time for us vintage/pinup ladies to purchase.
Accessories Include:
Yellow "Robbie" Heels from Bait Footwear
Pink handbag from Sun Jellies
Brooch and necklace from Erstwilder
Earrings from Revere Folie
Bangles from Splendette and Susan Jane Jewellery
Hair-scarf is thrifted 
After this week's blog post, I'm taking a few weeks off from blogging.  As I'll be busy preparing for The Rockin' Maryborough Vintage Festival, it's on the weekend of the 16/17 September this year.  I'm in charge of three pinup comps, so I have to make sure I have everything planned and ready for that weekend.
In other news I've been unwell with a cold, I've had to take the last two days off from work to rest and get better. Also as I have previously said I've just been busy with preparing the pinup comps for the Maryborough vintage festival.  I have three comps I'm preparing for this year the 18 plus one (12 finalists in total) the teens (8 finalists) and the children's comp, it's for both boys and girls to enter.  Hopefully it's a great weekend for everyone!
Anyway I'll let you all know in a few weeks how everything went!

Until next time!

I love it when I have someone to take my blog photos for me, it is so much more easier and less awkward then having to relay on using my tripod and self-timer! These photos were taken by my good friend Miss Vera Gin Vintage in Bundaberg, Queensland. They were taken at a few different locations for example in front of some sugar cane, under a bridge and on a chair beside a church.  I also took photos of her as well.

In other news I've just been working five days a week and organizing the pinups for the Rockin' Maryborough Vintage Festival in September.
Over the weekend I took more blog photos and did a little bit of housework.  This weekend I hope to go to a rockabilly/vintage festival on Saturday. I have to wait and see if I end up going!

Until next time!

In other news I drove up to Bundaberg to visit my friend and I also saw my family whilst I was there as well.  My friend Michelle aka "Vera Vamp" and I took photos of each other, the photos of her are to be used for her facebook page Vera Gin Vintage and the photos of me for my blog.  I'm looking forward to sharing these photos with you all next week!

By The Seaside!

This gorgeous 1940's sarong style dress is by one of my favorite brands Vivien of Holloway
I actually purchased this dress, for half price from Vivien of Holloway's sister store Shop at Christines
This store is based in Melbourne, Australia.  The store owner Christine sells a lot of Vivien of Holloway's beautiful garments, for local Melbourne girls to come into the store and try on the vintage reproduction clothing for themselves.
The dress I'm wearing and reviewing for this week's blog post is called "Sarong Hawaiian Reef".
This dress comes with it's own matching bolero, you can wear it with or without the bolero - either way looks great!  It is made from a cotton material (so has no stretch to it), it is also in a halter-neck, with a zip down the back.  This dress has a boned bodice and a one sided, wrap - draped skirt.  I love the length of this dress and the underwater sea-animals print on the blue background.
This exact dress is now sold out,both through Vivien of Holloway and Shop at Christines.
There are other prints to choose from on Vivien of Holloway's website or you can message Christine if you would like to order a sarong dress!
These style dresses do sell out quickly though, as there are limited sizes for each unique fabric print.  The 1940's sarong dresses usually sell for £120 ($200 Aus) plus shipping.
Accessories Include:
Sandals by Bait Footwear
Hair-flower from Daisy Jean Floral Designs
Necklace, Earrings and Brooch from Dottie DeLite Jewellery
Bangles from Los Flamingo and Louella Deville Boutique 
Parasol from an ebay seller

These photos were taken a couple of weeks ago, down by the waterfront of a sleepy little seaside town called Poona in Queensland, Australia. I wanted to take these photos by the sea, to showcase this beautiful dress for you all!
In other news I've been unwell with a cold/cough, I'm feeling better now!  Also over the weekend my car broke down, along the highway. I wasn't happy to say the least!  I had to get it towed back home, it is now fixed. Fingers crossed I have no more problems with it, at least for quite a while.
I also took more blog photos, as well over the weekend.  I actually took photos to be shared on a special blog-post by follow fashion blogger Lauren-Blair, her blog-page is called : Gracerock - Kellyroll, here is the link to this blog post:  Twinsie-Tuesday
Thank-you Lauren for asking to feature me on your wonderful blog! xo

Until next time!

Lana Floral!

 This week I'm reviewing this gorgeous 1940's style floral dress from one of my favorite vintage inspired brands Vivien of Holloway 
 This dress is the "Lana in yellow floral".  This particular print in the "Lana" is now sold out on the website. There are many other prints and colours to choose from still in the 1940's Lana style.  I actually own four of these style dresses, I just love them that much!  I adore the 1940's style, the longer A-line skirt length, the draped detailed neckline, the pockets and the many unique prints and fabrics to choose from.  All these dresses are limited in numbers for each size, so you have to be pretty quick to order one, otherwise they will sell out.
Only tiny downside for me personally is that around the upper torso area it is pretty roomy so I usually try and add a belt to give the dress more shape to it, for my body.  
This dress is made from a light polyester, so the fabric is breathable and comfortable to wear throughout the day.  It has a side zip, two side pockets, padded shoulders and that distinctive draping square neckline. The A-line skirt measures 31 inches long.  As I mention above this particular style is sold out, but there are still many other prints to choose from.  Sizes range from 10 up to 24, just follow the size chart to your own measurements to get the best fit as possible.  I ordered size 18, as the measurements fit my waist, although it is a bit too big around the bust.
The Lana sells for £99 ($160 Aus) plus shipping costs. 
Accessories Include:
Yellow Robbie Heels by Bait Footwear
Vintage handbag from a facebook buy/swap/sell group
Pink belt, earrings and bangles from Louella Deville Boutique
Tropical hair-flower from Gigis Retro Closet 
These photos were taken at an old Queenslander house located at Howard, Queensland, Australia.  The Queenslander is called Brooklyn House
A Queenslander is mostly found in Queensland, Australia.  These homes were built for our hot and humid, tropical weather. They were built with verandahs around the home, made out of timber and built on low or high stilts.  This allowed for ventilation to help cool the house down in summer.
This gorgeous house was built in 1890.  The current owners open their home for tours and you can stop by for a Devonshire tea and a scone. At present the owners have their home for sale.
 I'm very grateful and happy that allowed me to take my photos on their beautiful property.
In other news I've been working and over the past weekend, I stayed at home and caught up on some house chores etc.  I've also been trying to organize some sponsors for the Rockin' Maryborough Vintage Festival Pinup comps for September!

Until next time!

At The Park!

For this week's blog post, I'm sharing three separate style garments, from one of my favorite brands  Vivien of Holloway
The first is the "Dusty Pink Jenny Cardigan."  This cardigan is so comfortable and warm to wear.  I love the cropped length, as you can wear it with swing dresses, skirts and high-waisted trousers, as I am here.  It has a shawl collar, this is great for keeping the neck extra warm. It also has center buttons down the front, and the cardigan looks stylish both button up or undone. It is made from 100% acylic and comes in sizes small to xlarge.  Other colours available to order are red, black, treacle (brown), kiwi (green), teal and clematis (purple). The Jenny cardigan is available to purchase for £45 ($74 Aus) dollars plus postage. 
These pink soft 1940's swing trousers are also from Vivien of Holloway I really love there swing trousers  (I currently own four pairs).  I just love the style of them and how comfortable they are to wear.  These trousers are made from a soft fabric, and includes polyester, viscose and elastane materials. There are four white side buttons to get the trousers of and on.  I also love the length and how they sit perfectly on the waist-line. These swing trousers are available to purchase for £59 ($96 Aus dollars).  They come in sizes 10 up to 22.  Note: always follow the measurements on Vivien of Holloway's website for each garment to get the right fit. 
The blouse I'm wearing is also from Vivien of Holloway is the "Raglan Birdie Blouse".  This blouse is made from 100% cotton.  It has 3/4 length sleeves, buttons down the front and a collar.  The Raglan blouse is great for tucking into jeans, trousers and skirts.  I found this blouse to fit me well and comfortable to wear throughout the day.  I adore the cute little birdie print and the colours.  The Raglan blouse comes in many other prints and colours as well.  It's available to purchase for £39 ($64 Aus dollars) plus shipping costs.  It also comes in sizes 10 to 24, just follow the online measurements to get the right fit to your own measurements!

Pink sandals from Bait Footwear
Pink wicker handbag from Pinup Girl Clothing
Hair-flower from Georgie Girl by Sandra
Earrings from Revere Folie
Bangles from various online stores.
In other news I've been busy at work and busy in my own time, trying to get things organized for the pinup competitions at the Rockin' Maryborough Vintage Festival in September. For example organizing sponsors and prizes for the ladies/girls who win a place and designing promotional flyers. I also have to order sashes, organize the judges and MC etc - it's a lot to do and keeps me busy. It should all come together together in time and run smoothly - fingers crossed!
Over the weekend I took more photos for my blog as well.  Oh yeah I've also booked flights to visit New Zealand in October, I'm going over there for about five nights!  I'm anxious (as I'm traveling on my own, but I'm also exited to visit New Zealand for the first time. 

Until next time!
