V is for Vintage
I came across this brand V is for Vintage via social media, so I decided to take a look at their website and I really loved what I saw!
V is for Vintage or MaeKing (whom is the source for the name of this brand). Mae King spent all her life sewing and she taught her daughter's the art of tailoring. Her daughter Denise is the master seamstress behind the Mae King range, she is also the co-founder and fashion director of V is for Vintage. There is also Kirstin whom is also the co-founder, designer and of course wearer of the MaeKing range. V is for Vintage sell women's dresses, tops and skirts along with Men's tops and waistcoats.
On the website this dress is actually green, but I asked for a light blue fabric instead, which was kindly accepted and sourced for me by the lovely team of V is for Vintage.
This dress ranges from size 6 right up to size 28, I sent my measurements though, so this dress would fit perfectly on me.
The light blue fabric is made out of cotton, has black and white ribbon trimmings around the neckline and on the ruffled tiers of the skirt. This dress also has a back zipper, a black bow on the fitted bodice and short puffed sleeves.
This frock is really "out of the box" for me, as it's a type of style I haven't actually worn before - but as soon as I saw it on the website, I just had to order it, as I don't own any Western/Country inspired dresses. I do adore this dress, only little downside is the neckline it's just a bit too high for my own personal taste, apart from that this dress is such a beautiful dress to wear!
I wore one of my petticoat's underneath for more structure and shape to the dress.
I highly recommend on ordering yourself something from the New Zealand vintage inspired brand V is for Vintage.

I do prefer having someone to take my photos though as it's not as awkward. On occasions I do have to take my own blog photos.
Also I'm looking forward to attending my first Cooly Rocks On, down at Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia, in a couple of weeks time. It should be a fun weekend of all things retro, rockabilly, vintage and pinup inspired! I have some outfits lined up that I'm wanting to wear.
Until next time!
