Palm Leaves!

This gorgeous 1940's style dress is from Miss Bamboo UK and is the Palm Court 1940's Dress.
The owner behind the company Miss Bamboo lives and breathes the 1940's and 1950's and her online boutique represents her particular love of glamours American and Pacific style fashions.
The brand Miss Bamboo is high quality 1940's/50's reproduction garments.  You can also purchase, well-known brands such as Trashy Diva, Tatyana and Bernie Dexter, through Miss Bamboo's online store.
The garments include dresses, skirts, tops and blouses and men's shirts just to name a few to order and purchase.
The palm court dress is made from an original 1940's pattern.  The material is made of a light rayon and is very comfortable to wear. It is a shirt style dress, with an a-line skirt. The top half has three black buttons down the center that ends at the waist and is darted in the back for extra back and arm room and movement. I love the green palm leaves and fern print on the black background.
The sizes range from 8 up to 18, I ordered size 16 and it fits my measurements perfectly. The price is £65 ($115 Aus), plus shipping.
Accessories Include:
Black "Robbie" heels from Bait Footwear 
Wicker handbag is thrifted
Brooch from Kmart Australia
Bangle from Tiki Swag 
Earrings from Revere Folie 
Green back-seam stockings by What Katie Did and ordered through  The Nylon Swish
I do enjoy finding locations for my blog photos that match my outfits theme and style, sometimes it can be a little challenging though to find the perfect location.
 For example if it's a tiki/tropical style outfit I'm blogging then it will usually be a beach or a rain-forest type background. If it's a western/country theme outfit than a country style background.  For this particular dress I wanted to have palm leaves and ferns in the background.
I ended up choosing the botanical gardens at Hervey Bay for this blog photo-shoot.
Do you find it easy or hard to find locations for your blog photos, if you're a fashion blogger?
In other news I had a great long weekend, on Saturday I attended a rockabilly festival called Timewarp, my friend and I drove down and spent a few hours there, where we checked out the hot rods and vintage cars, looked at the markets stalls, caught up with some ladies we both knew, watched the pinup competition, my friend actually won the title of "Miss Timewarp" last year, so this year she had to judge the pinup comp.  I also watch my other friends rockabilly band called The Sugarshakers. We both enjoyed it, and there was a huge attendance this year also.
Also over the weekend my family and I had a picnic lunch on the Sunday and then went to an animal sanctuary, where we looked at and interacted with emu's, kangaroos, birds, lizards, an eagle and a camel.  We all had a great afternoon at the sanctuary.
Also I have one day of work to go, then I'm on leave for two weeks...yay!!

Until next time!

  1. Gorgeous dress and photos, you look gorgeous as always! Sometimes I do struggle to find a spot to suit my outfit, if I can't find anything I just go with the flow and find a nice spot. There seems to be a lack of flowers and gardens where I live. Sounds like you had a good weekend and yay for having time off soon x

    1. Thank-you so much Kayla! You have the beach and seaside though, which always suits your style so well! :)
