Beauty Salon!

I've been eyeing of this gorgeous fun novelty print skirt for quite a while now, it's by U.S. brand Unique Vintage.
A couple of months ago I was able to score this skirt from A Classic Paradise aka by Shop VDM and Tiki Swag
for a very good discounted price!   This skirt is called 1950's Pastel Beauty Salon high waist swing skirt.
A Classic Paradise currently has this skirt listed as $77.95 (U.S) and there are some sizes still available to purchase.  Also Unique Vintage currently has all sizes available, for $78.00 (U.S)
I'm wearing size XL and it fits my waist of 33 inches quite well.
I just love the wonderful print over this skirt, with the pinup/vintage ladies sitting under the hair-dryer at the beauty salon. Each of the four ladies is doing something different for example reading the paper, enjoying a cuppa, manicuring the finger nails whilst waiting for their hair to be "styled".  I also adore all the gorgeous pastel colors and the floral background print.
This skirt has pockets, and has a zip and button to secure. It's fully gathered and is made from 100% cotton.  I added my own petticoat underneath for more volume.
I decided to pair my black 3/4 sleeve top by Banned Apparel with this adorable skirt.
Accessories Include:
Cream sandals from Bait Footwear 
Pink wicker handbag from Pinup Girl Clothing 
White hoop earrings from Revere Folie 
Bangles from Louella-Deville
Pink pinup belt and cat-eye glasses from an ebay seller
The brooch I've paired with this skirt is from Erstwilder and is called "Rollin with Katie".  This brooch was in collaboration with Unique Vintage, to be paired with this skirt I'm wearing or with the dress version.  This brooch is now "sold out" through a lot of online retailers.  Although Unique Vintage still have it available to purchase for $28.00 (U.S.) plus shipping.  The "Katie" brooch is so cute with her cat-eye glasses and hair in a poker-dot hair-scarf.  It's made from a layered resin, with a metal back pin.
 In other news I'm currently on leave from work, and I'm enjoying have the time off and wearing my vintage style outfits, instead of a uniform for a change!
This weekend I'm going to Brisbane for a photo-shoot and I'm going on a steam train ride with some other pinups/vintage inspired ladies and gents.  I'm looking forward to that!  Then I'm going to have a couple of nights in Toowoomba, Queensland to visit and take my own photos for my blog there.  I want to try and photographed a few outfits, there is a number of beautiful gardens in Toowoomba to visit and admire.

Until next time!
