Bamboo Paradise!

This gorgeous dress is called Paradise 50's Dress which is by UK vintage inspired brand Hell Bunny
Which I purchased and had on lay-by for a couple of months through my local pinup/rockabilly boutique called Cherry Tree Lane
 On the Hell Bunny official website, this dress is currently selling for 42.99 pounds ($73 Australian Dollars).  You can find it's listed to purchase on other rockabilly/pinup websites such as Unique Vintage, Atomic Cherry, Retro Glam and on ebay.
This dress ranges from size small to extra large, which is my usual size with Hell Bunny and it fits quite beautifully and feels comfortable to wear.
I adore the print on this dress with the bamboo sticks, the green leaves and the pink, yellow and purple orchids on the cream background. Such a stunning tropical inspired frock!
The material is made from a light 100% polyester (a great dress to wear in summer).  It's a 1950's shirt style dress, with a pleated skirt, that flows from the waist seam. Other features is the cute little wooden style buttons down the center front, has short sleeves, a high back with a back zip to get in and out off.
The length on this dress sits nicely at my knees, also you can wear it with or without a petticoat/crinoline, I choose not to wear a petticoat for these blog photos.
Accessories Include:
Shoes from Payless Australia
Purple wicker purse from Pinup Girl Clothing
Brooch from Viva La Lux
Pink hair-scarf and orchid hair-flower from ebay stores.
Silver bangles thrifted
Vintage parasol thrifted
This blog photos were taken a few weeks back by my Mum at a gorgeous spot called Bamboo Land which is a nursery and park-lands, full of bamboo trees and grassy areas for picnics etc.
In other news my pinup friend Vera Vamp and I attended the annual Greazefest Kustom Kulture Festival. We both were in the pinups on parade on Saturday, with other pinup ladies to show of our own personal pinup/vintage style to the crowd and photographers.
We both attended the festival both Saturday and Sunday. We enjoyed looking at all the market stalls, viewing all the awesome vintage and hot rod cars, and checking out some of the rockabilly bands. 
Looking forward to going again next year!

Also I'm now on leave from work for a couple of weeks...yay!  I'm just looking forward to the next couple of weeks doing what I want to do.

Until next time!

  3. This dress is so immensely pretty. Each time I see it sported by a fellow vintage gal, I fall more and more in love with it. Sooo hoping to pick up one of my own at some point.

    You look terrific, sweet Camilla. I just adore the amazing setting you scouted to shoot this outfit in. I don't think I've ever been around live bamboo before. I bet it's a really cool experience.

  6. Very pretty dress, and what a lovely setting! Check out the size of that bamboo!! I had no idea it got so big, not being a climate where it grows. Anyway, pretty, pretty dress xx

    1. Thank-you, that's interesting to know that bamboo doesn't grow in your climate, like over here in Aus! :)
