Anna At Yengarie!

I recently received this dress from an UK vintage inspired clothing brand called  Dolly and Dotty
This dress is called the Anna Adorable 50's inspired swing dress, I chose the red and black striped dress but there are other colour ways to choose from for example red and white, yellow and white, black and white and green and black.
As well as the many wonderful dresses to choose from Dolly and Dotty also sell women's skirts, tops and headbands.  I actually received a matching headband with this dress, which I'm wearing in these blog post photos.
I would highly recommend on ordering yourself something from Dolly and Dotty, as there dresses/skirts/tops are quite reasonably priced and very well designed and tailored.
This adorable dress is made out of 95% cotton and 5% Elastane.  The size I choose fits me like a dream, I just followed the size chart supplied on Dolly and Dotty's website.  This dress is very comfortable to wear and will be great to wear in both the summer and winter months. For winter here in Queensland, Australia I can just had a cardigan and a pair of tights underneath. 
I just adore the black and red striped print (as red is my favorite colour).  This dress has a simple scoop front and lower back neckline, has a hidden side zipper and has a full circle skirt with box pleats.
I added my own wide belt to clinch in my waist-line.
Accessories Include:
Black heels are thrifted
Glasses are thrifted
Sunglasses are by Collectif ordered through Gwynnies Emporium
Black Vinyl Belt is from Pinup Girl Clothing
Curling Cassandra cat Brooch is by Erstwilder and is thrifted
Umbrella is also thrifted
These blog photos were taken at Yengarie Gallery and Garden in these beautiful gardens you can have art lessons, have your own intimate private functions and outdoor garden weddings. Also you can use for special photographic backgrounds like have for these photos.
I had a lovely couple of hours out at these gardens taking my own photos and chatting to the lovely couple that owns and up-keeps these wonderful gardens.
There are many different style backgrounds you can use for your own photos for example a huge pond, an old style bus stop, an old boat and car, tropical style gardens, a garden chapel and many more.
I hope in the near future I can take some more photos here!
I've only got a few more days left of holidays, I'm back to work on Friday, yay....not!
On Thursday before going back to work I've planned to take more blog photos with Miss Vera Gin Vintage, which I'm really looking forward to, as it's more fun having someone to take photos with!

Yesterday I went out with my Dad to a vintage car show for a couple of hours, my Dad took some photos of me in front of some cars and I meet up with a few local pinup girls.

Until next time!

  7. You look very beautiful, the dress fits you perfectly! I've been looking at Dolly & Dotty's website for some time now, but it looks like their skirts are a little shorter than what I'm used to so I wasn't sure if they would fit me, but you look so pretty that maybe I'll try them out!

    1. Yes you really should try them out for sure! :)

  8. Absolutely gorgeous - and very, very elegant ensemble. I really like how the red here is such a dark, alluring shade. It ups the sophistication factor by about a million percent. Very cute choice of brooch, too, may I add. You look so fabulous!

    Big hugs & joyful start of April wishes,
