Megan Dress Teal Spring Breeze

With Spring here there is no better time to break out lots of color!  This Megan Dress from Karina Dresses features the most beautiful combination.  It's teal background with the floral print in blue, fuchsia and pink makes it stand out in the crowd! I have received so many compliments every time I wear it. This dress of course is wrinkle free material that Karina Dresses are known for. It's lightweight material is very comfortable. The flattering design of the dress features a wide waistband and skirt that is very full. I really love the cap sleeves on this one, they have cute gathered details on them. It does have a plunging neckline which wraps over for coverage. The length is just below the knee. I think this probably one of my favorite Karina Dresses so far! I love them all, but this one just really stands out. The great thing about them is the quality and price. I definitely recommend adding some into your wardrobe. There are so many beautiful prints available right now. This style comes in several other prints as well.  They will be perfect for your vacations, especially since they won't wrinkle in your suitcase!

You can feel great about your purchase from Karina Dresses too! They are made right here in the U.S.A. in the Hudson Valley, NY.  It will always be high quality and great for any body type. 

I had a lot of fun styling this. I wanted to accessorize with several colors in the dress! I chose to wear teal earrings that are vintage and pink and fuchsia bangles from Splendette. The bag and heels bring out the green and they are from Lola Ramona. I am one for lots of contrast in colors, but you can wear just about anything with this to bring your style out. This dress makes me happy, I hope you will find a Karina Dress to do the same!

Tutti Frutti 50's Dress- Hell Bunny

I am so thrilled with how much I love this dress and I think you will too!  Not only is the Tutti Frutti Hell Bunny Dress super cute, it's super comfortable and flattering too. The print on the 50's style dress is so fun! It's filled with lemons, watermelon, cherries, strawberries and oranges on a black background so they really pop.  It's the perfect print for Spring and Summer. I will be getting tons of use from this dress! The front and back has triangle cutouts on the bodice, which are really cool looking. The bodice is fitted and it has the huge full circle skirt that I love about Hell Bunny Dresses! You can fit a petticoat like I did or go without.  Either way the dress is very full. It comes with a black fabric belt, that sadly I forgot to put on during the on location shoot. I will be using it next time! The material does have a little stretch. The zipper is in the back. The 50's dress is available in a wide range of sizes. You can also get this print on tops, skirts and hair ties! I would definitely add one of these items for the season to your wardrobe. I'm thinking it will be perfect for vacation!

Hell Bunny is always one of my favorite companies to feature!  I love their edgier styles and the fun prints they are constantly putting out.  I can always fall in love with several of the new releases every season! This season for SS17 there are many items I believe you will love too. Hell Bunny has high quality clothing at affordable prices, which is a plus for most of us! There are also sizes from XS-4XL, so something for everybody. 

I love to accessorize!  I especially love to accessorize with a bangle stack of pretty colors from Splendette! This dress made it easy to mix and match a stack. I also wore the gold Splendette earrings.  

My hair flower is from Shazam Vintage Pin Up Hair Flowers.  It's the Lemon Yellow LuLu Clematis Arrangement Hair Flower Clip.

Bonnie Blue Frill Dress- Joanie Clothing

Out with the old and in with the new, clothing that is!  It's time for Spring cleaning!  I always get the urge this time of year to purge old stuff. Although I am somewhat of a clothes hoarder, I do try to donate items I have not worn in a long time. Maybe it's all the new beautiful growth on tress and blooming flowers. It's very refreshing to me. Spring started so early this year, it's crazy.  Our cars are already getting covered with a light yellow haze and I know that means the heavy pollen is right around the corner! That part of Spring here is not so fun. There will be plenty of dusting, washing, sweeping and vacuuming in the near future.  My suggestion is when your chores are done, head on over to the Joanie Clothing site and treat yourself to some gorgeous new clothes! Joanie Clothing has the most adorable, unique designs.  My pretty light blue vintage inspired dress is called the Bonnie Blue Frill Tea Dress. It's made from a sheer material, with a built in slip lining. The frilly detail, cloth covered buttons, peter pan collar and pin tucks make this one of the prettiest dresses I have seen! I love the puffy sleeves too. The fit is very flattering and it comes with a thin white belt to accentuate your waist.  It zips on the side. This style is just what a lady needs for Spring outings.  It's comfortable, yet dressy enough for a brunch and modest enough for a church gathering. Needless to say, I am thrilled with it and will be wearing it a lot!  At Joanie Clothing you will find everything form dresses and skirts to jumpers, cardigans, blouses and accessories.  You can find UK sizes 8-22 there as well. They are passionate about making beautiful high quality clothes that many women can enjoy and feel beautiful in!

For my two looks for the Bombshell Vanity Article this month I wore my Heather Heels from Bettie Page Shoes.  They are so pretty in white and silver with leopard bottoms.  The heel is a great height since it's not too tall.  It's perfect for house work haha!  I also wore vintage earrings and hat.

Lady Voluptous has released their new Spring and Summer line and this Lemon Print Ursula Swing Dress is just one if the stunning choices!  I am absolutely in love with everything that they put out. This gorgeous lemon print just screams summer fun! The dress has a true 1950's length and is very full. I wore a petticoat with it. I love the neckline which is a crossover wrap style v neck. The material is very comfortable and does have a little stretch to it. You will feel so feminine wearing this! It fits your curves perfectly. The Ursula Dress is available in sizes 16-32. You can also find it several other prints and a pencil style as well. I cannot wait to style this fun dress in different ways and wear it for parties, dates, work and so many more occasions!

Oriental Flair- Joanie Clothing

The Mae High Neck Oriental from Joanie Clothing is just a stunning look for Spring! The embroidered cherry blossoms on the mesh overlay is the perfect combination! It is a very formal, but fun look.  The dress has a high neck with appliques on one side and the cherry blossoms are scattered in a perfect amount. It has a fitted bodice and flared skirt that falls just below the knee. The zipper is in the back. This dress is available in size 8-22. Joanie Clothing has some amazing designs and this ranks right at the top!  I really liked the fit and the style of the Mae Dress. I think it's a great choice for a nice date night or attending a party perhaps!  The mesh is a little longer than the lining, so you get a little extra leg peek too! I think you'll be very happy with this dress addition to your wardrobe, I know I'm hooked!

Joanie Clothing was founded in 2015 from a love of vintage inspired clothes and named after the designer's Great Aunt Joanie. You'll be able to find a design that's perfect for you, weather you want elegant, quirky, fun or fashionable. Joanie Clothing makes something for everybody too and always in sizes 8-22.

I wanted to wear this vintage hat for this shoot, but I think a really pretty up do would look great with this dress too!

Love the cherry blossom detail!

Spring is here with Lindy Bop!

Spring is here and so are new Lindy Bop styles! With today being the first day of Spring, it's only fitting to kick it off wearing the cutest new dress.  This is the Tallulah Yellow Woodland Folk Print Swing Dress. Oh my gosh is it cute! The pale yellow fabric is adorned with little fox, bunnies, deer and porcupines in pastel colors. It has little flowers too!  It's the perfect mix of colors and Spring print! The dress is a really soft jersey material with some stretch.  It has faux pearl buttons and a collared neck. The dress is sleeveless, so you can add a little sweater until the sun gets too warm. This dress has a very full swing skirt too! I chose to add a belt to cinch my waist. Lindy Bop has definitely put out a great dress with this style. I felt so feminine and comfortable wearing it. You could wear this dress just about anywhere. It is perfect for Easter!  It is also modest enough to wear to work or church! I am planning on wearing it many times.  You'll definitely want to add a new Lindy Bop dress to your Spring wardrobe!

The skirt hits just below the knee for that perfect length.

Here's a closeup of the Woodland Folk Print.  It's so adorable!

Lindy Bop is available online directly from them or you can find them at stockist worldwide.
