I ordered through an Australian pinup/vintage inspired company called Heavenly Acessorize
This company is based on the south side of Brisbane, Queensland. Owner Tracey started her business about two years ago after discovering the 1950s style. Tracey ended up getting a couple of dresses for herself and got so many compliments on them that she thought she would start a business selling vintage inspired style to ladies in plus sizes.
Since then she now caters for sizes 8 right up to size 30 and sells many of the well known brands such as Banned Apparel, Hearts and Roses, Lady Vintage, Lindybop etc
She offers world wide postage, also Tracey re-stocks most weeks and puts her new stock on her facebook page. Please go and like her page and hopefully you may end up purchasing yourself something really stylish with a 1950's flare to it!
The cons is I'm not a big fan of the halter-neck style, as at times it can start to feel uncomfortable around the neck, also I had to re-adjust the back from time to time as it kept wanting to pull-down too much, especially if I sat down and stood back up again.
Note: This jump-suit came with a matching fabric white belt, but it wasn't really sitting right on, so I swapped for one of my own retro style belts instead.
It's made from 97% cotton and 3% elastane. I believe there may be a couple of sizes left in medium and Large and retails on Heavenly Acessorize for $70 (Aus).

Bangles and fan from ebay and are thrifted
I didn't put any sun protection on, so I got really burnt across the back and shoulders, I'll have to remember to put sunscreen on when taking my photos, especially wearing summer style clothing.
It was a stinking hot day on Sunday attending the picnic, but still I had fun there. I saw and said hi to some of my "pinup friends", had photos taken with a motorcycle, a big pink flamingo blow up pool toy, and in a country style setting, with hay bales. I'm looking forward to seeing some of these photos in the near future.
I also won a $50 gift voucher to use at Vintage Pip, which I have already used!
I'm already looking forward going to next year's pinup picnic.
Until next time!
