Colourful Pinup!

On Saturday 31st of October 2015 I attended the Decades Festival in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.
The Decades Festival included a mixture of music (bands), vehicles and fashions from the 1950's through to the 1990's. Though saying that the pinup pageant and the fashion parade (which I took part in) mainly included inspired fashions from the 1950's and 60's.
At the festival I looked around at the awesome vintage cars, had some lunch with a follow pinup friend, had a bit of a browse at a few of the market stalls, watched the pinup pageant, participated in the fashion parade and had some photos taken at the event.
It was so hot walking around in the sun, even though I had an umbrella with me I still got a bit burnt.
The above photos are some professional photos of me on the catwalk and having a photo taken with a 1950's vintage car.
I really loved the outfit I chose to wear for this event, as I do love bright, bold colours. Plus pink is one of my favorite colours.
I wore my new Dolores pink top by Collectif UK  https://www.collectif.co.uk/  
Queen of hearts border print Jenny skirt by Pinup Girl Clothing http://www.pinupgirlclothing.com/ 
I accessorized this outfit with a pink pinup belt and pink hair-scarf from an ebay seller.  A pair of pink retro sunglasses that I received as a gift and my tea-set brooch from Deerarrow  http://www.deerarrow.com/ 
I also walked around with my pink and yellow umbrella as part of my outfit at the event.

A few days ago I received in the post three different hair-flowers from an Australian company called Daisy Jean Floral Designs   http://daisyjeanfloraldesigns.com/
I've been wanting to purchase some of their hair-flowers for a while but just haven't done so, until recently.
I ordered and bought a big sunflower piece, a rose double and a pink gerbera as in these blog photos.
As soon as I received these lovely pieces I wanted to take some blog photos, to showcase them to you all that follow my blog. For this pink Gerbera I knew I had to match it with a bright and colourful floral dress, and I knew straight away which dress to wear my floral halter-neck swing dress from Vivien of Holloway.
 Floral Fiesta swing dress is by Vivien of Holloway  http://www.vivienofholloway.com/
Pink gerbera hair-flower is from Daisy Jean Floral Designs  
Wide blue belt is from an ebay seller and my pink flower brooch is vintage.
Petticoat is from Gwynnies Emporium  http://gwynnies.com.au/

Next week I'll blogged about the pinup picnic by the sea that I recently enjoyed and attended!

Until next time!
