Floral Garden!

This beautiful dress I wanted to share with you all is from an Australian business called Dickybird Dresses
Dickybird Dresses is created and owned by a lovely lady named Kristen Cutlack, Kristen has studied fashion design, pattern making and illustration.  In 2011 the Dickybird label was started, Kristen custom designs dresses, skirts and tops.  All her designs are specifically made to suit the piece of fabric on hand, so just in every case her dresses etc are a one off design.
Her fabrics are often vintage and up-cycled from other pieces so her customers may expect some slight variations is colour in the made up dresses, skirts etc.
She also has an exceptional skill in fitting a garment to a customers measurements, which I definitely found in the dress she custom made for me!
Kristen sells her dresses at her own home in Queensland, Australia, at several markets and on her facebook and instagram pages @mydickybird
 This gorgeous dress what custom made for me to wear and to do a blog review on.  I just love this dress so much!
I was able to choose the style of dress I wanted, by messaging Kristen from Dickybird Dresses through her facebook page, and she sent me a photo of the fabric she currently had in stock that I could use for my dress. I do adore the pink floral print, the green leaves on the cream background.
I sent through my measurements, with the final result, ended up fitting like a dream!
I also love the length, the front pockets, the white zigzag ending around the pockets and neckline and the square neckline itself. This dress is made out of a light cotton and has a back zip.
I highly recommend on ordering yourself a "beautiful creation" from Dickybird Dresses!

Accessories Include:
Wedges are from Payless Australia
Cardigan is from Target Australia
White pearl necklace from Michael Hill
Retro sunglasses from Colette by Colette Hayman
Pink hair-flower from Gigis Retro Closet
Pink petticoat borrowed from Vera Gin Vintage
These photos were taken by the ever lovely Miss Vera Vamp and/or Vera Gin Vintage.  They were taken at a local park-lands in Bundaberg, Queensland.  In some of these photos there was a lady near by doing yoga, so we both had to try and stay clear from her!  Also I love the photos of myself lying on the grass, I'm very happy with these photos, and how great they turned out!
 In other news over the weekend I drove up to Bundaberg, Queensland to see some of the family and also to catch up with Miss Vera to take blog photos together, we also had a yummy brunch together in a local cafe as well.

I'll be featuring my next blogger interview on my blog, hopefully by the weekend, so keep your eyes peeled out for that!
Also I'm one the countdown now to attend my first ever Cooly Rocks On (huge rockabilly festival) down at the Gold Coast, Queensland. I'm so excited to go!

Until next time!
