Seaglass Megan Dress

The Megan Dress from Karina Dresses has quickly become one of my favorite go to everyday looks! This particular print Seaglass is perfect for Summer!  It reminds me of the gorgeous colors of the Gulf Coast, where I love to vacation. I will definitely pack this one, when I head down there next time! I can also count on it being wrinkle free when I get there.  I love the Megan style for many reasons.  The fitted waist and wide band is very flattering with the full skirt. It also is a great length.  I like how the sleeves fit and have a gathered detail that can be found on the shoulders as well. I would have this style in every print if I could! 

Karina Dresses are crafted in the Hudson Valley, NY and are of the highest quality you can get. You'll feel great knowing you supported an American made product and look even better wearing it! 

Karina Dresses has a lot of great styles and prints for this Summer, so make sure you check them all out! I'm confident you will find one you love. --->Website

Sunshine and the Mandala Swing Dress

If you are looking for a perfect Summer dress this is it! Dancing Days by Banned Clothing has brought this 50's Mandala Swing Dress to us. This is great for a day in the sunshine walking through the sunflowers!  The print will make you instantly happy too! It features hummingbirds and flowers in gorgeous shades of blue, yellow, teal and orange. The background is ivory. I think the colors will actually work to take through the fall season as well!  The dress has a fitted bodice and huge flared circle skirt.  I wore a petticoat under it.  It has a keyhole neckline with two other cutouts trimmed in piping making it really stand out. I also love the little sleeves.  This style has a hidden side zipper. I know you will be happy adding this gorgeous piece to your wardrobe!

These perfectly matched heels and bag are Dancing Days by Banned Clothing as well!  They have awesome accessories too!  This bag is a stunning mustard yellow with a rhinestone closure. It gets a lot of compliments! The Unforgettable Pumps are in the same color and are so comfortable!  They have a square heel, so they are very sturdy for walking and dancing. 

Banned has been creating clothing since 1990. They have accessories, bags, dresses, skirts, tops, shoes, shorts and more! You can find them at stockists around the world.  They are constantly bringing out vintage inspired fashions that make you feel in style in the modern world. 

My hairband is also Banned.  The possibilities are endless for accessorizing with this! I wore a stack of bangles and earrings by Splendette in coordinating colors. Have fun with your look and you will be happy and confident!

Red, White and Blue!

July is a special month for us here in the United States, especially the 4th of July! We celebrate that day in 1776 where we gained our freedom and adopted the Declaration of Independence. We are truly blessed to live in the greatest nation on earth! 

As with most special occasions, it is always fun to have a great outfit to wear. I like to go with themes for holidays and seasons. For the 4th, only red, white and blue will do! I found this dress from Lindy Bop to be perfect for the occasion! This halter neck swing dress has all the features I love.  The Lori Ann Blue Stars Swing Dress has a fitted waist and huge full skirt. I adore all of the little stars and the red trim makes the perfect accents. The wide halter tie falls just right along the sides of the chest to be very flattering. It ties around the back of the neck. The dress has back zip and a little stretch to the material. The bodice is lined as well. You could wear a red or white petticoat with this dress to add extra fullness and create a really cute look.  I didn't wear a petticoat for this, but it would look great! You can find this dress in many sizes XXS-6XL. I also added the red belt to cinch my waist some. Belts are a fun way to accessorize!  You can usually find some great ones at thrift stores or even Ebay or Amazon. 

Lindy Bop has always been a great vintage reproduction company!  You can count on them to always have beautiful styles and affordable pricing. You will be surprised at how many styles they offer and come out with weekly! There is also an amazing sale section and the offer cheap shipping in the U.S. Their dresses are available at stockist all over the world and can be found in some department stores now. I think you will be happy with the choices you have, so happy shopping and Happy 4th of July!

1950's Elegance

I love how elegant this custom 1950's style gown from Evette Dubois Lingerie is!  She makes the most beautiful pieces you have ever seen. She starts the design process by gathering your ideas for style, colors and theme.  Then she sketches out the design and brings it to life! It really is an amazing process. Your item will be custom made to your measurements for a perfect fit. This lilac gown was the perfect look for my recent shoot, sweet and seductive! I chose to wear a black lingerie set underneath, however if you are braver than me the sheer gown will be very nice all by itself. The lace detail she added at the waist is so pretty and delicate and I love the sleeves! You will see the attention detail in every item that she makes. You'll also find styles ranging from the 20's-50's and all types of materials used. I would highly recommend treating yourself to a unique gown or lingerie set. 

Evette Dubois Lingerie is handmade in Melbourne, Australia. You can order from her Etsy shop and see some of her gorgeous creations there too!

The Positive Petals Peggy Dress from Karina Dresses just screams Summer! This adorable red, white and blue print is so pretty. You can count on the high quality that you get with every Karina Dress as well. This is the first time I have worn the Peggy style and I really loved it! It features a collar on a v neck, which is a great look. It has a fitted waist and a flared skirt. The waistband is wide to give that added support and flattering effect. This pattern is part of the signature line of in house designed prints for Karina Dresses. The Peggy is sleeveless. Of course, it will be wrinkle free material that is perfect for your vacations! The dress is a win, win and I definitely recommend one for the season! 
I was able to hit up a festival in my town the other night and I decided this was the dress I should wear.  I knew I would feel confident and comfortable wearing a Karina. I got to see some beautiful classic cars and local vendors. It was a great family night! 

Karina Dresses are made for all body types and sizes! The great thing about them is that they pride themselves on being a body positive company. They range in sizes 0-24. I promise you will find a style and print that you will love! 

Accessorizing this dress was fun for me!  I have some gorgeous red Atomic Boom Boomerang Brooches from Los Flamingo that I thought would look great with this print. You can see the fun detail in this closeup!

Nashville Boogie- Styling with Dolly and Dotty

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to attend the Nashville Boogie Weekender.  It is such a fun event! I was able to see so many Rockabilly legends perform and new Rockabilly bands that totally rock! I got to dress up in many outfits and wear boots with my dresses.  It was so much fun!  The Gaylord Opryland Hotel that the event is held at is absolutely gorgeous! There are so many photo opportunities there it's unreal!  The Atrium's are full of lush foliage, rivers, waterfalls and more. 

Here is one of the looks I wore.  I wanted to wear this beautiful off the shoulder dress from Dolly and Dotty. It features a huge full circle skirt that I wore a petticoat under, a wide flattering waistband, short sleeves and button details on the shoulders.  This black dress with red and white roses really stands out!  It also has some blue details. It has a side concealed zipper. Of course being I Nashville, I had to wear boots!  Normally for a dress this gorgeous I would pair heels with it, but I loved the look of the boots too! You can wear this dress just about anywhere for any kind of occasion.  I think it's a perfect date night look. The Darlene Dress from Dolly and Dotty comes in several other colors too. 

You can see just how beautiful the rose print is!

Dolly and Dotty can be found online and at stockist all over. Their dresses are available in UK sizes 6-24 and in the most pretty colors and designs! The quality is always top notch and I love wearing their clothing!
