Balinese Gardens!

I bought this dress earlier in the new year from Stars and Swallows from a recent "sale" they had.
This dress is called The Ella Tiki dress by Steady Clothing
Which comes in two colour ways the red and black, I chose the black one! This dress is made out of 100% cotton, whilst the colour material is made out of a rayon/polyester/spandex mix and is made in the USA.  I found this dress has a lot of stretch, so is quite comfortable to wear and fits to my figure nicely.
The strapless bodice is quite snug and has hidden plastic boning for extra support, this frock also has a hidden back zipper. I love the colourful hibiscus and tropical plants over the front faux wrap of this dress and the sarong/wrap style. Such a great dress to wear in the summer/warmer months to try and stay cool.
I believe this dress on the Steady Clothing website has been discontinued. However Stars and Swallows still have some sizes left in both the red and black colour way but are back to full-retail price!
 
Accessories included:
Vintage wicker purse
Pink wedges are from Payless Australia
Orchid hair-flower from Stars and Swallows
Bamboo tiki bangles from Cherry Bay Fabulous 
Pink pastel gumball necklace from Your one stop pinup shop 
Sunglasses are from Colette by Colette Hayman 

These beautiful tropical theme gardens I took my blog photos at is actually a private residence gardens called Bumble Bee Hillside Gardens here is the website link: http://bumblebeegardens.com.au/  
  Bumble Bee Hillside Gardens are located near Hervey Bay, Queensland, Australia. You are able to hire out these beautiful theme gardens for any special photo moments for example for weddings, graduation, naming ceremony and vow renewal. As well as the tropical/Balinese style gardens, there is also rustic style gardens and cottage gardens which I had the pleasure by the owner to be shown around!
I highly recommend these gardens to have your special theme photos taken in!  I hope I'm able to visit these stunning gardens again in the near future!
Please feel free to enter my first ever blog competition giveaway, there are some great pinup/rockabilly accessories up for grabs from such wonderful Australian business, which closes by next weekend here is the link: My first blog giveaway

  2. I always forget about Steady Clothing - I think they're just not as available over here, certainly not in the way the likes of Hell Bunny are. I really should pay more attention! You've got so many wonderful tropical dresses - consider me jealous!

  5. Gorgeous print! I love the colors and I love that the print is against a black background. Too lovely. I love all the accessories you wore with this too especially that pretty pink necklace. How fun about the gardens. It's a great idea really to have a garden of your choosing to take pics in. It must have been so fun seeing all the different gardens they had!
