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!

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.

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!

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

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.

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