In The Kitchen!

I saw this gorgeous dress come up "on sale" a couple of weeks just before Christmas, I decided I had to purchase it.  It was through A Classic Paradise also known as Tiki Swag and Shop VDM.
Because of the red, green and white colours, I actually wore this dress on Christmas eve.  As well as this dress being "on sale" for a great price, I also received free shipping to Australia - which was wonderful!
This dress is actually by Bernie Dexter and is called Kelly dress in kitchen print. I love the colours and print over this dress, with the retro kitchen appliances, utensils and crockery.
It's a shirt style dress with a gathered circle skirt, I wore one of my petticoats underneath to give it more shape and fullness. It's made from 100% cotton (has hardly no stretch), has hidden lipstick pockets and comes with a matching red belt.
The most favorite part of this dress for me personally is the zipper down the front - instead of buttons, it is such a great idea! I found this dress so easy and quick to put on (I didn't have to worry about doing up buttons) and very comfortable to wear.
Accessories Include:

Shoes from Bait Footwear
Wicker Handbag is from Pinup Girl Clothing
Double rose hair-flower from Daisy Jean Floral
Brooch is thrifted
Bangles from various boutiques
White hoop earrings from Revere Folie
This week's blog photos were taken in the kitchen at home.  I knew I wanted to take photos wearing this dress to share on my blog in a kitchen! There are actually some retro/vintage inspired appliances in the kitchen for example the oven and microwave. So I believe it made for a great backdrop for photos.
In other news my friend Michelle aka Vera Vamp and I had a busy weekend.  I asked Michelle if she could please help me take photos for my blog, as I had 6 dresses to take photos of! I'll actually start sharing these dresses on my blog next week....so please keep your eyes peeled for that!
This weekend I have the rest of the family staying at our place, so it should be a hectic but good weekend!

Until next time!
