Diner Retro Barbie!

I knew I had to own this gorgeous print and skirt as soon as I spotted it on instagram, then on June Bugs and Georgia Peaches blog
I straight away sent a message to Dazey LaRue's etsy store, asking her if she could custom make me this gorgeous skirt to feature on my blog!
Dazey LaRue designs and sells custom tops, skirts and dresses from genuine vintage patterns. Plus she specializes in novelty prints, border print fashions and custom orders.  Dazey is located in San Francisco, USA.
The retro Barbie skirt is made from a light cotton and is gathered, from the waist and it has a zip with button closure.  I just adore this retro barbie print and the colours so much. A little background info on me when I was a young girl, I would play with my Barbie dolls for hours on end, either on my own or with my cousin and I/we would make up all sorts of stories with our Barbie's.
The peasant black top I'm also wearing is from Le Bomb Shop
This top is made from a light weight 90% cotton and 10% spandex.  It has an elastic neckline, that allows for on/off the shoulder wear.  The back of the bodice is also elasticized to allow for a custom fit and to get on and off, as there is no zipper in these tops. Only tiny downside for me, is the armholes felt a little tight up under my arms.  Sizes range from small to 3XL and price is $24.99 (US).  I also ordered an orange peasant top from Le Bomb Shop.
Accessories Include:
Black flats from Payless Australia
Barbie brooch from Deer Arrow 
White hoop earrings from Revere Folie 
Bangles and hair-scarf are thrifted
Wide retro belt from Pinup Girl Clothing 

This week's blog photos were taken by my friend Miss Vera Vamp at a new retro diner that's opening up soon in Bundaberg, Queensland called RJ's Rock N Roll Diner
I'm really looking forward to when it does open, as from what I saw that was actually done at the time, these photos were taken a few weeks ago, it's going to be so awesome!  I just hope the local people support the diner and keep it up and running!
 In other news, over the weekend I had a lovely time at both my Christmas staff party and at the local Christmas carols in the park with my sister.  This weekend I hope to try and finish of my Christmas shopping and hopefully catch up with my friend Miss Vera, we're talking about going meeting up a local beach.
Apart from that I'm on the countdown to Christmas and spending some time with the family and having a few days off from work.

Until next time!

  5. Very cute skirt, works so well with that top and the belt. You look so pretty!

    I used to love Barbies when I was a kid, but I didn't have many of them. My neighbors on the other hand had so many Barbie dolls with lovely clothing, I was really envious and I went to play there all the time :D

    1. Thank-you so much, yes it is a very cute skirt for sure! :)

  6. Gorgeous outfit Camilla! I love everything you've put together here and really love these pictures in the 50's diner. I also was huge in playing with barbies with my cousin too as kids! It was one of the best games ever. <3 Hope you have a wonderful Christmas season!

    1. Thank-you so much! Oh that's so great to know you use to play with barbies as well! :)
