Let's Go Sailing!

I was recently given the opportunity to review this gorgeous swing skirt by an Australian rockabilly/pinup business called Ursalady Creations which you can find on their facebook page.  They also have a physical store in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.  Ursalady sells well-known vintage inspired women's & men's clothing brands, accessories, shoes, lingerie plus some home-wears. They also sell their own swing skirts, I choose their "pink yacht skirt" to blog - which is currently on sale for $45 Australian dollars.
There swing skirts come in 7 other prints and their size range's from small (26 inch waist) to 4XL (41 inch waist). I ordered the XL which is my usual waist size of 32 inches and it fits perfectly.
I love the pink fabric with the sailing boats around the bottom and the little nautical objects all over the skirt.
This skirt is made out of a light crisp cotton, is gathered, and has a back zipper and top button to secure. I also love the length as I can wear a full petticoat underneath.
I should be able to wear this skirt in both the summer & winter months with a pair of tights/stockings underneath.
I decided to pair this skirt with my black and white striped 'October top" from UK vintage inspired brand Lindy Bop which unfortunately is currently out of stock.
Accessories Include:
Black flats from Payless Australia
Pink bag is by Sunjellies ordered through  Vintage Pip
Pink Petticoat is from Lindy Bop 
Retro belt is from an ebay seller 
Pink gumball necklace is from Your one stop pinup shop 
Retro sunglasses were a gift
Sea shell hair-piece is from Gigis Retro Closet 
Brooch is from Viva La Lux 
 These photos were taken by my follow blogger/pinup friend Miss Vera Gin Vintage, whilst I was visiting her hometown of Bundaberg last weekend to visit family and Miss Vera Gin.
I knew I wanted to take these blog photos with sailing boats/yachts in the background to match with my sailing inspired skirt. We took these photos at a local yacht harbour and by the Burnett river that goes directly through Bundaberg.
In other news I've just been busy working, taking blog photos (have quite a number of outfits to blog), and just been busy with home-life.
I'm looking forward to next weekend as myself and Miss Vera Gin will be heading down to a rockabilly festival as we're both in a pinup parade, so excitting - I still don't know what I'll be wearing yet!

Until next time!

  5. Beautiful photos, your outfit is just perfect! The top works really well with your skirt, which is beaaautiful. I love pink skirts and I love the ruching as well, it makes the skirt look much fuller than without.

    What do you pink about Lindy Bop petticoats? I've thought of buying one, but I really don't know if they are good quality or not. I have a couple of Hell Bunny petticoats which are quite scratchy on my skin and then I have Sams petticoats, which are really soft chiffon (like Malco Modes petticoats), but I'd want more colors and lengths :)

    1. I find Lindy Bop petticoats not as full as Hell Bunny ones, their lined inside so not so scratchy on the skin. But I would say they're a good cheap alternative to give skirts/dresses a fuller appearance! xo
