Mary Rose!

I've been wanting to purchase a 1940's inspired dress from Heyday Vintage for a while now.  A couple of months I was able to order the Mary Dress in Deco Rose in Red.
Heyday Vintage specialized in vintage reproduction garments from the 1930's up to the 1950's.  Personally I believe their clothing look and feel like a true vintage piece!
They sell both Women's and Men's clothing, including dresses, skirts, tops and blouses, trousers, jackets, shirts and suits.
The Mary dress is a gorgeous 1940's inspired garment.  I love the white roses and leaves on the red background.  Other features to this dress is the back zipper...Yay! I much prefer back zippers to side zippers in dresses, so much easier to zip up.  It also has small shoulder pads and a pleated V shape neckline.  I ordered size 16 and it fits quite well on my body, even the sleeves are not to tight for my arms.  The material is 100% Matt polyester, and is lightweight and breathable to wear.  Sizing ranges from 6 up to 20, there is only a few sizes left in this print though.  Their are other sizes available in other beautiful prints of the Mary dress.  Currently this dress is available to purchase for £80 or around $135 (Aus) plus shipping.
Accessories Include:
Heels from Bait Footwear
Red wicker handbag from Pinup Girl Clothing
Brooch from Deer Arrow
Rose hair-flower from Daisy Jean Floral Designs
Red back-seam stockings by What Katie Did
Sunglasses by Collectif
Bangle is thrifted
Earrings from a local boutique
I took these photos for my blog at a Japanese gardens, located in Toowoomba, Queensland.  It was such a beautiful place to visit for the first time and take photos there.
There are so many wonderful backdrops to choose from in these gardens, including bamboo trees, bridges, a lake, Cherry blossom Tress (unfortunately weren't in bloom), and other beautiful floral shrubs and trees.  I do hope to visit again in the near future!
 In other news over the weekend on Saturday I went to a rockabilly festival down at Caloundra, Queensland called Beachfest! There was a lot of vintage cars and hot rods to check out, admire and take photos with.  I meet up with a follow pinup friend and we watched the pinup competition together.  On the Sunday I checked out more of the vintage cars and a rockabilly/pinup clothing boutique called Poison Kandy Klothing.  I took photos for my blog, before heading home.
This weekend I plan on having a quiet one at home, I'll probably also take photos again for my blog.

Until next time!
