Tea Dress - Part One!

I was recently asked by the press department at Vivien of Holloway if I wanted to collaborate and feature six 1940's style Tea dress on my blog to take photos of and review!  Of course I said yes!
I was able to keep one, and to send all the other dresses back to Vivien of Holloway.
I found it very hard to choose only one, I also purchase another one from Vivien of Holloway
The first 1940's style Tea dress is the stamp caramel.  I love the novelty stamp print, the colours and the white buttons down the front.  As well as the buttons down the front, there is also a little eye and hook clip inside in all six dresses to assist with keeping the buttons in place and for added support.
All dresses have shoulder pads and pockets.  Note: I've wore my own retro style belts to nip in the waist and give more shape and structure to all these gorgeous dresses.
Accessories Include:
Shoes from Bait Footwear 
Red wicker bag from Pinup Girl Clothing 
Hair-flower from Daisy Jean Floral 
Bangle is thrifted
 The second 1940's Tea dress is called Pocket Watch (I decided to keep this one) the novelty print of pocket watches is so unique and I love the simplicity of the blue and white together.
It also has white vintage style buttons down the front.  All dresses have an A-line skirt that is 31 inches in length.
Accessories Include:
White Sandals from Bait Footwear
Hair-flower from Daisy Jean Floral
Earrings from Blue Belle Pinup Store
All six dresses are currently available to purchase for £79/$127 (Aus) and comes in sizes small to extra large.  Just follow the size guide on Vivien of Holloway's website to get the right size for you. I ordered size Large for each dress and they all fit perfectly.
The third 1940's style Tea Dress is called Floral Green. I adore the pretty floral print on the green background. Once again this dress came with white buttons and also there is white detailing on the pockets, sleeves and on each side near up near the shoulders.
All six dresses are made from 100% cotton, so are quite cool to wear in the hotter summer months.
Accessories Include:
Seafoam Robbie heels from Bait Footwear
Bangles are thrifted
Pink purse is from Lola Von Rose
Hair-flower by Georgie Girl by Sandra
Earrings from Reverefolie 

All these photos were taken by my good friend Michelle aka Vera Vamp. The first dress was photograph at an heritage listed post office in Maryborough, Queensland.  The second and third dress were photographed  at Hervey Bay, Queensland at a open-air museum called Hervey Bay Historical Museum
The museum has many exhibits including an old style grocery store, an early settler cottage, an early 19th century home, train station, an old school, church and many more.

Next week I'll post Part Two up on my blog with the final three 1940's style Tea dresses to share with you all!

Until next time!
