Vixen Hair and Makeup!

This gorgeous dress I purchased a few months ago from Vixen by Micheline Pitt etsy page. At the time Micheline Pitt was having a "sale" on her page and I knew I had to buy this beautiful dress for myself!
It's the Vixen Swing Dress in Vintage Hair and Make-up Print. 
Straight away I fell in love with the dress style and the make-up and hair print on the pink background.
The size ranges from XS to 3XL, I'm wearing size XL and it fits perfectly to my body shape.
This dress retails for $206.02 (Aus) and around $154.48 (U.S) on Vixen by Micheline Pitt's etsy page.
 The material of this dress is very comfortable to wear throughout the day, it's made from a high quality cotton/spandex sateen, stretch material. Other wonderful features is the back zip, the removable vinyl belt and the deep pockets to fit your smart phone in.
Also I adore the puff sleeves, that can be worn on or of the shoulders. Personally I found of the shoulders, worked best for me. The bust-line, features a small tie, that can be cinched in to give a flattering shape.
I wore one of my fluffy petticoats underneath the skirt, to give it more of fuller/swing shape.
I'm really happy with this dress and I received many compliments on it, at a vintage and hot rod car show I attended the other weekend!
Accessories Include:
Robbie Heels from Bait Footwear
Pinup Girl Clothing wicker pink handbag from a facebook buy/sell/swap group
Pink bow earrings from Revere Folie
Hair-dryer brooch from Erstwilder
Bangles and hair-scarf is thrifted
One of my favorite parts of dressing vintage/pinup is finding the right accessories to match my outfit, whether that is matching the right shoes, bangles, brooches, handbags and hair-accessories etc.  I like to match the right colors and theme with the garment I'm wearing!
Some of my favorite accessories brands include Bait Footwear, Erstwilder, Deerarrow, Revere Folie, Daisy Jean Floral and Pinup Girl Clothing (wicker handbags). I also love wearing vintage and thrift-ed pieces as well, for example gloves, jewellery and hats. 
Do you enjoy accessorizing your outfits? 
In other news, on Saturday I'm attending a rockabilly/vintage festival called Timewarp. I'm going with Miss Vera Vamp, she actually won the title of Miss Timewarp last year, this year she has to judge the pinup competition. I'm going along for the ride and to also enjoy the day!
It's actually another long weekend coming up, so I'll also be seeing the family as well.  It's not long now until I'm on leave from work for two weeks!  I'm really looking forward to the break.

Until next time!
