Forget Me Not!

I've been eyeing of the "Lana" dresses by Vivien of Holloway
for quite a while now, especially after seeing this dress style on other blogger web-posts!
I ended up purchasing myself one, about a month ago.  It's the Forget Me Not, Lana dress.
As much as I love wearing 1950's inspired dresses, I also love wearing 1940's styles as well.  I just adore the floral print and the longer A-line skirt of this dress, that gathers down the front.  Other favorite features to this dress, is the deep-side pockets and the square neckline with the draping is just stunning!  It also has light shoulder pads.
Only tiny downside, the Lana dresses have side zips (which I'm not really a huge fan off, I prefer a back zip personally).  Also it was a little big between the waist and the bust-line, so I had to get it altered to fit better on me.
This dress is made from a 100% polyester and I found the fabric very light and comfortable to wear.  The Lana retails for £99 and comes in seven other prints. Vivien of Holloway have vintage sizing, so always check their sizing chart for each garment, to get the best fit. Note: many sizes though have sold out though in all dress prints.  Hopefully Vivien of Holloway re-stock many of these dresses in the near future!
Accessories Include:
Shoes are thrifted
Vintage wicked handbag from a facebook buy/sell/swap group
Hat is thrifted
Cat-eye glasses from a ebay seller
Pearl necklace gift from Michael Hill Jewellery
Earrings from Colette by Colette Hayman
These blog photos were taken at a Historical home called Orminston House  The house was built in 1860's and was once a privately owned residence. Though now it's looked after and run by a dedicated team of volunteers, whom allow the public to view the house and the gardens on Sunday afternoons.  Also there are many special events held throughout the year on the grounds of Orminston House. 
As soon as I pulled up at the house to take my photos, a storm was about to hit, so I had to wait until the storm had passed to take my photos.  Lucky a lovely volunteer was kind enough to wait around with me, until the storm had passed and for me to take my photos.
In other news I spent the weekend up in Bundaberg, Queensland where I caught up with my family and took blog photos with Miss Vera Vamp.  We took photos in a retro style diner that will be opening up soon to the public, I'm really looking forward to when it does open!
Also I ended up buying a couple of goodies in the Black Friday sales! 
This weekend I'll probably have a quite weekend at home and hopefully take some more photos for my blog as well.  It's actually suppose to be getting really hot within the next few days, which I'm not looking forward to!

Until next time!
