Retro Caravan!

A little while ago I was given the opportunity to review the most wonderful printed dress by a UK vintage inspired clothing business called Victory Parade Collection this dress is called the Polly Pencil Caravan dress currently this dress is listed for 99 pounds. Which converts to $190 Australian dollars.
I just love all the wonderful printed dresses and dress styles Victory Parade has currently on offer for sale, so many unique and fun fabric prints! The reason I choose the caravan printed dress is I love retro 1950's/60's caravans and it was a print that stood out and grab my attention the most!
I highly recommend on buying yourself a gorgeous dress from Victory Parade Collection.
Victory Parade's dresses comes in sizes XXS to XXXL  I ended up ordering the XL which fitted my waist line quite nicely but was too big for my bust (due to having a small bust line) I ended up getting the top altered and taken in, which this dress now fits like a dream. This dress is made in a light cotton fabric, has a hidden zip down the back, has a back slit for easy walking, turnback red collar, tailored cap sleeves and red turnback pockets. 
The times I have worn this dress I have received great feedback for example asking questions like "where is my dress from?", "oh I love your dress" etc.
I had to wear my Erstwilder  Happy Glamper brooch with this dress. Such a great pairing!!

Accessories Include:
Red 'Gypsy Rose' hand-carved shoes from Lucky Lou Shoes
Bangles are thrifted
Vintage car necklace is thrifted
Red hair-scarf from an ebay seller 
Red retro cat-eye sunglasses from an ebay seller
Yellow Sun-jellies tote bag ordered through Vintage Pip
These photos were taken with a lovely lady's vintage caravan called "Doris" the caravan is so cute and I'm so very happy the owner allowed me to take photos in and around her caravan, as well as using some of her props, especially her retro style bike.  As I had been on the hunt for a vintage/retro caravan for quite sometime to take blog photos with - they're hard to come by in my area!
"Doris" resides on a tranquil private property and accessories/vintage business called Sunshine Adore here is the facebook link:
I ended up buying a couple of cute floral earrings from Sunshine Adore.

In other news I've been really busy working nearly every day this week, a few days ago I was offered another position at work, which I accepted so I'm really looking forward to trying this new role out for a few months to see how I go!
I actually have this weekend off, I'm just wanting to relax and catch up with some household chores, plus re-colour my hair ready for next weekend in the pinup parade and rockabilly festival!

Until next time!

  1. Wow, what a dress!! The fit looks really great and I love that print. I am yet to try this brand but always hear great things! Love the Erstwilder brooch and styling too. Another perfect location x

    1. Thanks Kayla I'm really wanting different locations for my outfit blog photos this year! xo

  2. Such an adorably cute photo shoot! I love seeing all the new places you find to photograph in! I wish I could pull up a chair and share a cup of tea with you! You look amazing in this dress! Such a gorgeous and fun dress! <3

    1. Oh I want to share a cuppa with you as well lovely lady! :)

  3. Swoon, I need that beautiful dress (which look sooo great on you!) in my life. What an incredible print! Chances are though, it would be sold out before I ever saved up enough for it (the Canadian dollar being roughly on par with the Australian one). Worth a shot for sure though! :)

    Big hugs & happy weekend wishes,
