Tea Dress - Part Two!

Here is part two of the six 1940's Tea day dresses I was sent by Vivien of Holloway to feature and review on my blog. (I was able to keep one and post the others back).
Here is the link to part one if you have not had the opportunity to read it yet Tea Dress - Part One
The fourth 1940's style tea day dress is the Mushroom Red, I actually decided to purchase this one from Vivien of Holloway, because it was very hard to decide just on one to keep!
I love this one because red is one of my favorite colours to wear and the yellow and blue mushroom novelty print is so cute!
I really enjoyed deciding on how I was going to accessorize and style each of the six dresses, with my own shoes, handbags, jewelry and hair accessories!
I was also happy that I had a retro style belt that would go well with each dress.
Accessories Include:
Red flats from Bait Footwear
Handbag from Vendula London 
Red hair-scarf from Daisy Jean Floral  
Earrings and bangles from various boutiques
 The fifth 1940's style tea dress is the Rose Grey, this one has pretty little flowers on a blue/grey  background.  I do really love this beautiful print and the pink buttons down the front.
I found all six dresses very comfortable to wear and also felt like I was actually wearing true vintage dresses from the 1940's, instead of vintage reproduction/inspired outfit. 
My favorite features for all dresses is the length of the skirt (31 inches), the pockets, the light cotton material and the shirt style with the retro look buttons down the front.
Accessories Include:
Peep-toe flats by Bettie Paige Clothing (Ordered through a facebook buy/sell/swap group)
Pink basket by SunJellies
Hair-net and earrings from Daisy Jean Floral 
Bangles from various boutiques
The sixth and final 1940's style tea dress is the Letters Brown. This novelty print dress has little green, blue and white envelopes on a brown background. I wanted to bring out the brown more by wearing my brown heels, bangle and belt.
This dress was another very close favorite to choose to keep!
Accessories Include: 
Brown heels were thrifted
Vintage wicker basket is from Word from the Bird
Green earrings from Daisy Jean Floral
Bangle was thrifted
Cat-eye glasses from an ebay seller
Thanks again to my good friend Michelle aka Vera Vamp for taking these photos for my blog.  The photos on this week's blog post were taken around some heritage style buildings and in Queens park in Maryborough, Queensland. 
I would also like to thank Betty for allowing me to borrow her retro style bike.
