Pinup Faces!

A couple of months ago I ended up scoring this awesome dress for a great price on a facebook buy/sell/swap group.  It's the "Drive in Dress in Wink Print" by Bernie Dexter
I just love the face print on this dress  and the three main colours of white, black and red. It's such an effective, unique print, that really stands out!
This dress is 100% cotton and has hidden lipstick pockets. It comes with a matching black patent belt.  I just adore the shirt style dress, but what makes it even better is the zip down the front, instead of using buttons.  This is such a great idea, for a number of reasons. For example it's so much easier and quicker to do up, there is no pulling/gaping with buttons (especially if you have a bigger bust) and there is no need to worry about sewing on buttons, if any do fall of. Also it is so comfortable to wear throughout the day.  There is still many sizes left on the Bernie Dexter website, if you would love to purchase this dress.  Sizes range from XS to 4XL and retails for $172.00 (U.S dollars)
Accessories Include:
Black heels from Bait Footwear
Hat and bangle are thrifted
Brooch is by Deer Arrow
Earrings from a local boutique
These photos were taken at home in my Mum's beautifully decorated formal lounge/dining room. My Mum loves decorating a room with antique inspired furniture and pieces.
In other news I had a great little holiday in New Zealand, I went over for five nights. I stayed in both Auckland and Hamilton.  The weekend just gone I attended The Very Vintage Day Out in Auckland on both the Saturday and Sunday. I had the opportunity to meet in person a few of the gorgeous pinups I follow on instagram, including the gorgeous Miss Hero Holliday  I have been following both her blog and instagram for quite a while now, she is such a beautiful young lady.  The festival was a lot of fun, there were markets, entertainment, some vintage cars and of course the Miss New Zealand pinup competition - the top 10 finalists, were all so wonderful to watch and cheer on, especially watching their talents been performed on stage.
I also did some tourist things for example I went up the sky tower (a 61 floor look-out building) and I went to the Hobbiton movie set, where all the hobbits live in both The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings movies.
I also took some photos in a few different outfits at a number of beautiful locations and places, that I'll be sharing on my blog in the coming weeks, so please do keep a look out.
Unfortunately my holidays are nearly over, I have to go back to work on Monday!

Until next time!
