Vintage Camera Cuteness – Red Dolly Swimwear

California based designer Heather Stepanik set out to create retro inspired swimwear that would make her customers feel comfortable and confident. She forgot to mention cute, which is also guaranteed when wearing a Red Dolly suit!

L_MG_4238

The blue camera print one piece is the definition of adorable and features a halter tie top, a padded bust and an adorable tie in the centre front.

Fully lined and made of 85% Nylon, 50% spandex, this suit will sit snug and hug you in all the right places. The gathered/ruched front is a cute touch that doubles as a disguise around the tummy area (which is always welcomed). The boy short bottoms ensure good coverage so you can feel comfy and confident on the beach or by the pool.

Red dolly stocks sizes Small through to Extra large. Check out their size chart here.

My measurements are 32”-24”-32” so on the smaller side of a small but they are designed to give and stretch and I felt this suit was an excellent fit!

Polka Dot Perfection – Red Dolly Swimwear

Things are heating up…Actually who am I kidding, they have been stinking hot for a while now!

The Aussie summer is here, which means it’s time for a dip down by the seaside and the dilemma faced when hitting the beach is of course: What ever will I have wear?!

Lucky I’ve got Red Dolly Swimwear to save the day!

L_MG_4120

Behind the label is talented California based designer Heather Stepanik. Heather has a background as a bridal seamstress which she worked as for four years before she decided sweet Swimwear was where her heart really was. Red Dolly doesn’t just cater to grown up ladies either: there’s suits for both girl and babies too!

Heather says she wants women to feel beautiful, comfortable and confident in her suits and I certainly felt all of the above when wearing the light blue polka dot two piece.

The Light Blue Polka Dot Bikini will ensure you feel super cute when you show up on the sand this summer. I found the classic lines were really complimentary on my figure.

L_MG_4163

This original Red Dolly design features a halter neck tie and a gathered centre which is fully lined and you can opt to have option padding sewn in for a small additional fee. My suit pictured here is padding free and given I’m content with my itty bitty, but beautiful titties, it suits me just fine!

My favourite part about the bottoms is that they are full coverage (something sometimes hard to come by when swimmer shopping) and I loved that the high-waisted style accentuates my waist and highlights my curves in all the right places.

Red dolly stocks sizes Small through to Extra large. Check out their size chart here.

My measurements are 32”-24”-32” so on the smaller side of a small but they are designed to give and stretch so I felt they still fit me really well.

I’ll be getting LOTS of wear out of these pretties this season!

Priscilla Pink Gingham Midi Dress – The Pretty Dress Company

 

I’m in a pretty hot and heavy love affair with the colour pink right now, so the pink gingham pretty that is the Priscilla midi dress immediately caught my eye.

A classic Pretty Dress Company style, the Priscilla midi is a really complimentary cut: fitted through the bodice and finished off with a beautiful full and flowing skirt with cute pleat details. Let’s not forget a stand out feature: Ladies, she has POCKETS!

L_MG_0226

Fully lined and made of cotton, this is the perfect summer dress for the warmer weather here in Australia.

L_MG_0278

I come in at 168cm tall with measurements 32″-24″-32″ and am wearing a UK 8. I had wiggle room in both the bust and waist, which I welcome because it means it’s a dress I’ll be comfortable in (even after a huge slice of cake) The length suited me and I like that I’m able to adjust the straps to best suit my frame.

L_MG_0481

This is the perfect edition to my ever growing collection of pink garments. I absolutely adore it.

Fatale Embroidered Prom Dress – The Pretty Dress Company

Want to feel like a princess? I’ve got just the dress!

Introducing to you the gorgeous Fatale Embroidered Prom Dress in the black colourway by The Pretty Dress Company.

L_MG_0503

Who am I kidding, this dress needs no introduction! This signature design is iconic to the Pretty Dress Company and is available in both a wiggle and swing version and in a variety of colourways including black, white and navy.

The dress is made from beautiful rose embroidered tulle over a stretch sateen and features an off the shoulder bodice that is both boned and lined. I love the little details on this number, like the shoulder gathering and of course, the beautiful rose embroidery. The full prom skirt promises the perfect vintage silhouette. I’m 168cm tall and love where this dress sits a little below the knee on me.

L_MG_0554

I’ve accessorised the dress with patent black ankle strap shoes and black earrings, as well as a red rose for the hair to team with the theme. I wanted to keep it fairly simply, as I feel the dress really speaks for itself and steals the show.

The Pretty Dress Company recommend you check their size chart to ensure you order the correct size, as their sizes tend to run a little on the smaller side.

L_MG_0602

I’m wearing an 8 and my measurements are 32”-24”-32”. I found I had wiggle room in this style in both the bust and waist. This dress runs in sizes 8-20. The Pretty Dress Company offer worldwide shipping.
