Tea Party!

A few weeks ago I ordered a custom made skirt from an Australian vintage inspired company called Lulu Rocket Retro
This company sell women's clothing, shoes and accessories from well known vintage inspired brand names from both Australia and around the world.
But the lovely owner also custom makes her own vintage inspired dresses and skirts which you can directly order from her website  or facebook page
Which is what I did, I had a look at all her photos on her facebook page and choose this lovely tea pot/canister/cup print and ask if she could make this print into a circle/swing skirt for me and here is the end result that I wanted to share with you all!
I just thought this print was so cute and very different from other fabric print's I've seen. I've sent the lovely owner of Lulu Rocket Retro my waist measurements and that I preferred a gathered skirt (easier to iron).  This fabric is custom printed so I had to wait a few weeks until it was ordered and delivered to be custom made for me.
I just love this skirt, it's made out of 100% cotton and has a back zip and button to get in and out of.
I highly recommend ordering yourself something from Lulu Rocket Retro, something that is custom made to your measurement and style and that's unique for you!
I decided to wear my vintage shirt with this skirt and a petticoat underneath for extra shape and structure.
Accessories Include:
Shoes are thrifted
Tea set brooch is from Deer Arrow
Earrings are from Colette by Colette Hayman
Necklace and hair-scarf were both given to me by Lulu Retro Rocket

 These photos were beautifully taken by my Mum at the most gorgeous cottage and gardens called Vintage Rose Cottage
Their gardens and their own home is out of this world amazing, so much to look at, take in and admire!  The lovely owners open their home and gardens every weekend for visitors to come and enjoy. As well as looking around at the gardens and inside their home, you can order yourself something delicious to eat or drink, and sit down and admire the view.
My Mum, sister and I want to go back again real soon, as we had such a lovely few hours there plus  hopefully to take more blog photos as there are stunning area's I didn't get a chance to take a photo in/with.
In other news I have a professional photoshoot with a awesome vintage car tomorrow, which I'm really looking forward to!
I have two outfits/themes I'm going to wear and get photographed in.  I hope to share these with you all soon!

Also if you mention that you've read this blog post on Lulu Rocket Retro facebook page, under my blog link the lovely owner will be sharing on her facebook page - you'll received a 10% discount code to order yourself something really lovely for yourself!

Until next time!
