Miami Flamingo!

This week's blog post is about this bright and colourful dress from Lindybop
It's called "Valerie" Purple Miami Print Swing Dress. I saw this wonderful dress come up for "sale" on Lindybop's website, a little while ago and I just had to purchase it for myself.  The fun border print and colours sold it for me. I love the pink's and purples, plus the Miami street scenery and the pink flamingos flying over the city skyline.
This dress is currently for sale at around 50% off on Lindybop's website for $29.95 (Aus) £18.  The sizes available, are 8-22.
Other great features to this dress includes the fabric, it's made of a stretch poly fabric with a matte finish. That is 97% polyester and 3% elastane. It also has a concealed back zipper, a deep fitted waistband and a box pleated swing skirt. I also love the front and back V shaped neckline.
I found this dress very comfortable to wear, especially with the fabric that was used and it fits well to my measurements.
Accessories Include:
Cream sandals from Bait Footwear 
Purple wicker handbag from Pinup Girl Clothing 
Bangles are thrifted
Flamingo brooch from Kmart Australia 
Flamingo hoop earrings from Revere Folie 
Hair-flowers from various boutiques
I've been dressing pinup/vintage inspired now for around three to four years and one thing I've always struggled with the most is my hair and creating perfect pinup and vintage inspired hair.  Mainly because my hair is very thick and very stubborn, both of these reasons can make it very hard to create perfect victory rolls and bumper bangs.  Over the last year I do feel that I am improving with my hair especially when it comes to setting pin curls and doing a wet set with sponge hair rollers in my hair.
In Queensland, Australia it does get very hot and humid here in summer and spring, so I mostly like wearing my hair up off my neck.  Because of this I love to try and create a poodle inspired hair-style, as in these photos.  How do you feel I went?
In other news I've just been working, taking blog photos, selling some of my dresses, skirts etc that I don't really want anymore and buying new pretties for myself to wear and feature on my blog.
I'm looking forward to having four days off from work next weekend for Easter, it will be a lovely little break.
In May I have two weeks off from work which will be wonderful, especially as I can wear my pretties and no boring uniforms.

Until next time!

  1. Lovely dress, suits you very well :) The colors are very beautiful, and I also like Lindy Bop's matte poly fabric. I have two dresses made from it and it's very comfortable and nice for a change, since most of my dresses are cotton.

  2. Another beautiful dress and again perfectly accessorised! Your hair looks amazing here, you have done such a great job and I can really see that you have been practising. I struggle to put my hair into up-dos too as it is really thick and has a mind of it's own haha. That will be nice when you have your break and can wear all of your gorgeous clothes x

  6. Many halls are created to provide a catering service to specific cultural needs. And it gets very difficult to have a party at a hotel because the catering staff could not cook the traditional meals required by the client. But this event space specialize in specific cultural needs.
