Tutti Fruitti!

I received this summer inspired dress from an Australian retro clothing and accessories boutique called Laurina Jean Retro 
To feature on my blog for all my lovely readers and followers!
 Laurina Jean Retro sale rockabilly dresses, handbags, petticoats, cardigans and boleros, jewellery and hair accessories.
You can also find Laurina Jean on facebook   https://www.facebook.com/laurinajean/home
I just adore the print on this dress, with the pink watermelons and strawberries.  On Laurina Jean's website it's currently listed for $70 (Aus).  They do ship Australia and World wide (shipping costs vary, email Laurina Jean for a quote).
Sizing ranges from size 8 right up to size 24.  Size charts are listed on their website.
This dress is made from 100% cotton, has a back zip to get in and out off, has capped sleeves, a sweetheart shape neckline and a full circle skirt (great for wearing a petticoat underneath), I also love the length on the skirt, for my height.  Note: I added my own belt (from another dress) and one of my petticoat's for extra structure and shape.
Such a wonderful summer inspired dress to wear. That I highly recommend on purchasing yourself one, there is also a tropical pineapple print dress as well to choose from!
Accessories Include:
Peep-toe shoes from Williams Australia
Pink petticoat from Your one stop pinup shop (from a friend)
Watermelon hair-scarf and pink gumball necklace also from Your one stop pinup shop
Tights from Target Australia 
Watermelon brooch from Atomic Mingo (no longer in business)
Sunglasses, earrings and Tiki bangles from various online business's.
Laurina Jean Retro are having a pop-up shop at Hervey Bay, Queensland this weekend of 20/21 August from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm both days, there will be some great specials on some of there clothing and accessories.  I plan to attend one day this weekend, so if you live local please go and check there pop-up shop for yourself.  The location for Hervey Bay is on their facebook page.
 In other news I'm going over to Fraser Island with all the family for a couple of days, which I'm really excited about as I've never been before, even though it's located right at my doorstep! We have a special family celebration over there, which I can't reveal at this time!
We are staying at a lovely resort called King Fisher Bay I'm looking forward to relaxing, exploring, drinking and eating.

Until next time!

  10. What a beautiful and tropical dress, you look stunning! I've always loved vintage and retro style but never thought I could pull it off. I just discovered you and your blog today... the day of the pop up shop in Hervey Bay... and... I actually live in Hervey Bay! I'm taking this as a sign and will be buying my very first retro dress today! Maybe even this watermelon one!! ;) Thank you so much Miss Milla Cherry. I will be sure to keep following you and your blog for more inspiration!
