Birthday Picnic and Vintage Fashions!

On the weekend (Sunday) I went to my friends Birthday picnic/BBQ at a local Botanical Gardens, after we all had finish our lunch, I asked a few of my friends if they wanted to take some photos together in the gardens. Which of course they said yes to if was just us ladies who were dressed up in "pinup".

After having some lovely photos taken together, a few of us girls went to see an Australian movie called The Dressmaker this movie is set in the 1950's and stars Kate Winslet, Liam Hemsworth, Hugo Weaving and Judy Davis.  I really loved this movie, especially the beautiful 1950's costumes...just stunning!
For these photos I wore my sunflower Hell Bunny dress,  my new sunflower hair-flower from Daisy Jean Floral http://daisyjeanfloraldesigns.com/ 
Betty Jo sparrow brooch from Erstwilder http://www.erstwilder.com/ 
and a pair of white peep-toe shoes from Target Australia.
 I really enjoyed the day, it's so good to "hang out" with girlfriends whom dress similar to myself and enjoy having photos taken!

For my day off from work today I decided to wear this gorgeous 1950's Atomic print dress by Love ur Look Clothing  http://www.loveurlook.co.uk/
and to take some photos for my blog.
This week apart from working, I've been trying to organize a few girls that live locally and who also wear's pinup/vintage style clothing to help out with a little 1940's/50's fashion show I'm organizing for next week for the residents I take care of in an Aged care facility I work at.
I've asked the girls to bring along at least two outfits to parade around in and that are inspired from the 1940's and 50's.  Hopefully I will have enough girls for next week, as I really want the fashion show to be enjoyed by all!
Today was a really hot day here in Queensland, Australia. Apparently though over the next week, it will be getting hotter. Summer is here in Australia!!
I'm accessorizing this dress with my retro sunglasses by Collectif  https://www.collectif.co.uk/
a Betty Bo necklace, a red printed hair-scarf, a couple of bangles and a pair of red floral earrings.

Until next time!

The sunflower in your hair looks so cute with that sunflower dress and your second dress has such a great cut and print! Good luck with the fashion show you are organizing! That's so great that you are putting it together yourself for the residents you take care of! <3

  3. What lovely ladies! That Hell Bunny dress is sooo cute on you. I have that print in a skirt, but I also love it in the dress.
    "The Dressmaker" sounds like a movie I'd love! I'll have to see if it's available to watch over yet here, yet.
