Autumn Colours!


Hi everyone!

How's your week going?
On Sunday my husband took photos of me at Yengarie Gallery and Gardens wearing two of my vintage inspired dresses for upcoming blog posts! I've also been keeping myself busy at work, as a activity officer in a aged care facility.
What are you're plans for this coming weekend?
On Saturday my husband and I are taking a ute and trailer full of things up to my Mother's new house in Bundaberg, Queensland.  She's had a big few weeks of packing and sorting everything out for the big house move, my Mum has actually moved from one town to another!
On Sunday we will probably clean and tidy our unit up. 
This week I'm featuring this beautiful dress by Swedish brand Miss Candyfloss I especially ordered this dress through Australian vintage inspired clothing company called Call me Valerie I was able to pay for this dress using Afterpay.  This dress is called Edelie-Tea Burgundy and is from the Acid Doll collaboration (Acid Doll is a influencer on instagram with a lot of followers).
I just love this dress style and the colours of black and burgundy. I'm wearing a size XL, it fits perfectly in the bust and waist areas, only thing is the sleeves are a little tight for my bigger size arms.  This dress is great to wear in the cooler months in Queensland, Australia but I won't be able to wear it in our hot humid Summer months!
This exact dress is just about sold out through the Miss Candyfloss website, with only a couple sizes left.  
Other great features is the detachable black bow, I decided to keep the bow on for these photos.  Next time I wear this dress I'll maybe wear it without the big bow! This dress also has functioning buttons down the front, French cuffs and a double Henley neckline. You have the choice to fully buttoned up to show of the double Henley neckline or partially unbuttoned for a more comfortable feel.   It also comes with a matching fabric belt and has a hidden side zip to get in and out off.  Personally I prefer back zips on dresses, as side zips can sometimes feel uncomfortable and are sometimes a bit tricker to zip up.  You also could wear a petticoat underneath, I choose not to for these photos.
It's made from 62% polyethylene 32% viscose and 6% spandex. 
Accessories Include:
Black Beret thrifted
Lady Brooch by Erstwilder
Bangles and Earrings by Splendette
Black shoes by Kitten D'Amour
These photos we're taken by my wonderful husband at Bamboo Land and Nursery
My husband Graham and I love these gardens, as it holds a very special memory for the both of us. This is actually where we got married at, in August last year!  We both have visited here together a few times and decided together Bamboo Land and Nursery was the perfect location for our wedding ceremony! 
Have a great weekend and take care.

Until next time!

Daisy Chain!


Hi everyone!

How's your week been so far?
I've had a busy work at week, as my colleague has been of from work due to being unwell. I have also been trying to sell more of my vintage inspired clothing and accessories, I don't wear anymore through facebook buy/swap/sell groups!
What are you're plans for this coming weekend?  My husband and I have grocery shopping to do this weekend...Yuk!! I don't like grocery shopping one bit, but it's something that has to be done.  I don't know as of yet what else I'll be doing this weekend. 
I'm very excited for Erstwilders new care bear release range next week, I hope to buy a couple of pieces.  I love care bears I still have my original 80's friend bear. 
This week I'm featuring this gorgeous dress by UK brand Collectif  it's called the Demira Daisy Gingham Dress.
I just love the blue gingham print and the little white and yellow Daisy's over this dress, it's so cute! I have worn this dress a couple of times now and I have found it so comfortable to wear throughout the day.  I purchased this dress through Australian online company Gwynnies through Afterpay! I believe there are a few sizes left to purchase.  The Collectif website have now sold out of this particular dress. 
I'm wearing a size 18, it's a little loose between the bust and the waist, but I prefer that, then it being to tight and uncomfortable.
Other features to this dress is the cute elasticated puff sleeves, this fits my arms perfectly.  It has a covered zip down the back to get in and out of and a V shaped back neckline.  It also has hidden pockets!  You could wear a petticoat underneath the gathered skirt, but I choose not to for these photos.  Actually I usually only wear petticoats for pinup events and pageants, not for everyday wear.
The material is 97% cotton and 3% spandex.   I love that I can accessorize with blue, white and yellow!
Accessories Include:
White Hairflowers from Shazam Pinup Hair Flowers
Daisy Brooch by Erstwilder
Earrings and Bangles by Splendette
White Handbag by Pinup Girl Clothing
White Shoes by Bettie Page Shoes ordered through Nicole Jade Boutique
There photos we're taken by my supportive husband at a couples private gardens called Yengarie Gallery and Gardens  these private gardens are absolutely amazing, with so many different plants, flowers and scenery to look at and admire.  Plus so many backdrops for photos, I hope to visit their again soon!
Have a great weekend and take care.

Until next time!

Garden Pathway!


Hi everyone!

How's your week been so far?
I've just been working, I'm a activity officer in a aged care facility. Today I came home not feeling well, I came home and had a good rest.  It's been quite cold this week in Sunny Queensland, it is suppose to be winter after all!
 I've also been trying to sell some of my vintage inspired clothing that doesn't fit and I don't wear anymore.  I've actually sold some of my clothing and I've been to the post office to post them of to their new owners.
What are you're plans for this coming weekend?
I'm not 100% sure what I'll be doing yet, I know my husband and I have to clean up out unit though, with the usual of cleaning the bathroom, vacuuming, washing the floors and just a general tidy up.  We're planning on having family over for lunch on Sunday.
This week I'm featuring this gorgeous dress by Australian vintage inspired company called Retrospec'd
Retrospec'd is one on my favourite vintage inspired clothing companies, I own a few of their dresses and I adore them all! 
This dress is called "Belinda" and is the "Flower market" print.  I just adore this print and all the colours  in this dress you could possibly accessorize with, I decided on this day I would accessorize with my favourite colour - red. 
Sizing ranges from size 6 up to size 18, there is currently still some sizes to choose from in this exact same dress.  Just follow the size chart for your best fit.  I'm wearing a size 16 and it fits really well around my waist, it's just a little bit big under the bust area. 
The fabric is made out of a cotton stretch sateen and has a back zip to get in and out of.  This dress features a scoop front neckline and short sleeves.  The skirt has double box pleats, their is room to put a petticoat underneath but I choose not to wear one for these photos.  This dress also has hidden pockets!!
There are other dress styles in this exact same print from the Retrospec'd website. 

Accessories Include:
Red Boater Hat from Morgan & Taylor
Red belt from another outfit
Red Handbag from Pinup Girl Clothing
Red Sandals by Bettie Page Shoes and ordered through Nicole Jade Boutique
Bangles and Earrings from Splendette
These photos we're taken by my loving husband Graham at a local park in Maryborough, Queensland.

Into the Jungle!

Hi everyone!

I've decided to get back into my vintage inspired fashion blogging, after taking another long break from my blog!

Much has happened since my last blog post, way back in August 2019.  I got married back in August to my darling husband Graham, we both had such a lovely wedding and reception.  A few days later we went on our honeymoon trip up North of Queensland, we went away for a few weeks, the both of us had such a wonderful time - seeing all the sights, catching up with some friends and with some of Graham's family members.
We have also had to move homes a couple of times, in a matter of six months.  Then Bam - Covid19 happened! This meant not being able to go to any rockabilly/pinup car events, family events or even just go for a simple drive somewhere out of town.  
I still have been dressing up in my vintage inspired clothing, whenever I can, usually on weekends and when I'm on leave from work.  My wonderful husband takes my photos for me when I'm dress-up in my outfits.  I share some of these photos on my instagram profile miss_millacherry and on my facebook page Missmillacherry.  Please follow me if you're not already.
For this week's blog post I just have to share with you this amazing jumpsuit by UK brand Vivien of Holloway
I ordered this jumpsuit a few weeks into Convid19 crisis from Vivien of Holloway website, this was the longest wait ever that I have waited for a parcel to arrive!  Anyway 10 weeks later it finally arrived from the UK to where I live in Queensland, Australia.  I really thought this awesome jumpsuit was loss forever!
 I haven't really been a big fan of "animal" print fabrics over the years but this leopard print jumpsuit  looked like so much fun to wear and totally out of my usual vintage/pinup inspired style, I just had to purchase it!
This romper jumpsuit is so comfortable, yet stylish to wear.  I just love the elasticated waist and the zip down the front to get in and out of.
The romper has pockets and the sleeves fit well on my arms - I don't like tight sleeves!
It's made out of 100% cotton, has turned up pant cuffs and has a shirt style collar.
 I ordered a size 22 in Vivien of Holloway's own size and this jumpsuit fits well on me, and is very comfortable to wear throughout the day.  Just follow your own measurements on the size guide section of the website for your own best fit. 
 There are still some sizes left to choose from in this same romper jumpsuit.  There are a couple of other print rompers to choose from, they are though a bit more expensive to purchase.
I decided to accessorize with red,  I think black, pink or even yellow would look great with this leopard print romper.
Accessories Include:
Red beret from ebay Australia
Tiger brooch from Erstwilder 
Red belt from another outfit
Earrings and bangles from Splendette
Red Sandals by Bettie Page Shoes and ordered through Nichole Jade Boutique

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, whatever you may be doing!
I don't have many plans for this weekend, just boring grocery shopping and I'll probably go and visit my Mum and sister.

Until next time!

Hi all!
For this blog post I'm featuring these two floral dresses by UK vintage inspired company Lady V London
This company sells dresses, petticoats and girls dresses for more affordable prices.
All garments are made in London to the highest quality.  Sizes range from 8 up to 22.
The first dress I'm reviewing is this gorgeous sarong-style floral dress.  It's called The Elsie Dress. This particular floral pattern is now sold out on the Lady V London website, but there are many other gorgeous fabric pattern's to choose from. I actually purchased this dress from an Australian company called That Shop I believe it's sold out on there as well.
I love the fabric on this dress, it's so comfortable to wear. It's made from 95% polyester and 5% elastine.  I'm wearing a size 16 and it's fits like a glove on me.
 Some great features to this dress is the draping on the side, the wrap around style and the V-neckline. It has a back zipper to get in and out of.  I also love the length of this dress, the capped sleeves and the floral print.
This dress is such a flattering style to wear.

Cardigan by Mak Sweater
The next gorgeous dress I'm reviewing is the Eva Dress in Mustard Floral. This exact dress is available to purchase in all sizes, as it has been re-stocked! Yay!!
I just love this floral print on the mustard background.  These colours are just so pretty and very eye-catching. That's why I ended up purchasing this dress for myself!
This dress is made of 95% polyester and 5% elastine, and again very comfortable to wear throughout the day.  I'm wearing a size 16 and it fits so well on.
This dress features pleat details at the shoulders and on the skirt.  It has short capped sleeves, a crossover neckline and a fitted bodice.  This dress actually doesn't have any zips, you just pull-over your head and away you go!
One of the best features for both dresses, because of the polyester fabric is that they both don't need any ironing at all! 
Accessories Include:
Hair-flower from Daisy Jean Floral Designs
Earrings and bangles from Splendette
Sandals from Bait Footwear

These photos we're taken by my soon to be husband at a couple of locations around Maryborough, Queensland.
