Purple Floral!

Recently I asked Kristen from Dickybird Dresses to custom-make me a dress.  I wanted a summer vintage style dress, with buttons down the back and thin-straps to tie up on the shoulders. After a few messages back and forward to each other, regarding exactly what I wanted, the fabric print and giving Kristen my measurements, this is the end result!  I'm very happy with this dress I love the purple floral print and the purple trim on the waist, neck-line, shoulders and pockets.  The back has tiny white buttons and a small zipper at the end to get in and out of. I do require someone to help me with doing up the back buttons though. This beautiful print is vintage up-cycled cotton fabric. I wore a white petticoat under this dress to give it more structure and shape.
I have previously blogged another dress by Dickybird Dresses here is the link: Floral Garden
Kristen and her business Dickybird Dresses are located in Queensland, Australia.  I love how she custom makes garments from vintage and up-circled fabrics, it's such a great idea to give a frock a  more of a vintage touch to it and to have something that is unique one off design.  I highly recommend on ordering a dress from Dickybird Dresses, as Kristen is very prompt at answering messages and creating a special piece just for you!  I have received wonderful service from her on both occasions and I hope to have something made for me again in the near future!
Accessories Include:
Sandals from Bait Footwear 
Wicker handbag from Pinup Girl Clothing 
Earrings from Revere Folie 
Bangle thrifted
White hat from Target Australia
This week's blog photos were taken out in backyard garden.  A long side the purple Geisha Girl and the lavender crepe myrtle.  I knew this backdrop would look lovely with this gorgeous dress!
In other news I'm now on a week's leave from work.  Thursday morning Mum, my sister and myself fly out from Brisbane, Queensland down to Melbourne, Victoria for a few days.  We're staying in Ballarat, Victoria, I'm wanting to attend a rockabilly festival there called Ballarat Beat, also we want to check out some vintage shops.  I also hope to take some blog photos as well.
I'm half-way packed, I just need to pack my makeup and toiletries in my suitcase.
Next week I'll let you know how the festival/holiday went!

Until next time!
