    Budget Pinup!

    Budget Pinup!

    If your just starting out in the pinup world and you are on a budget, then there are many brands out there that can provide you with vintage inspired looks for extremely competitive prices.

    Dresslily is one of those very versatile brands. Being a leading international online fashion clothing and home wares store they offer the very latest products to suit a wide variety of styles and personal tastes.

    So I thought I would put together a few different looks featuring three different vintage inspired dresses from Dresslily with all the photography by my fabulous friend Brookleigh Photography. Be sure to check her out!

     First up is the Cross Back Flower Print Vintage Dress

    Blooming with flowers enliven this vintage-inspired A-line dress cut with a high-rise waist with a crisscrossed back is the perfect floral frock for the cooler months. There a few standout colours featured in the fabric which makes accessorizing a dream. I teamed this dress with a red bolero, orange vintage hat and gloves, teal stockings and a big red flower. This is a shorter cut dress, so if you prefer longer dresses then this one is not for you. You can pick this little number up for $42.70. This one was definitely my favourite of the three featured.

    Next is the Fold Over Off The shoulder Skater Cocktail Dress in navy blue. I do love a good off the shoulder number and I was pleasantly surprised with the fit, fabric and colour for the price of $46.18. Easily matched with a variety of different accessories, I chose baby pink beads and true vintage gloves. This dress could easily be dressed up or down depending on your event or mood. A belt would also look amazing with this dress however I chose to just feature the dress on this occasion.

    Lastly for the animal novelty print lovers is the Dinosaur Print Dual Strap Dress available in both black and white. I received the white and straight away knew that my leather jacket would suit it perfectly. While I do the love the colours featured in the fabric I'm not a huge fan of dinosaurs but for the price of $50.32 I was happy with the fit and cut, especially the neckline. The skirt is not a full circle so I was only able to fit a small very soft petticoat underneath. If you love dinosaurs and novelty prints then this dress would be perfect for you, or if you had a themed party to go to. For me the jacket gave it a rockabilly edge, but there are many ways you could go in terms of styling.

    Final thoughts, if you are a pinup on a budget or maybe you are just starting out in the world of pinup and are yet to find your style, or if you are a teen with a pinup dream. Then check out Dresslily, there are so many styles to choose from that won't break your bank account. They have a lot of reviews on their items so be sure to give those a read too. They provide full or partial refund if the item is not as described on the website. I will also be trying some of their swimwear when the weather warms up, so keep an eye out for that.

    DRESSLILY COLLABORATION

    DRESSLILY COLLABORATION

    I was recently contacted by Dresslily to not only try some of their super cute 50's inspired dresses but to also do a live review on their Face Book page!

    I jumped at the opportunity straight away because they really do have some adorable vintage inspired items that won't break your budget and because I love trying new things and going live is something I have never done.

    So after a few issues with my kiddies and some technical updates we are now set for the live review later this week. I will be announcing the day and time in the next couple of days so stay tuned and make sure you are following the Dresslily Face Book page below.

    I was lucky enough to receive four different vintage inspired dresses, one being classic 50's, rockabilly/diner style, tiki and a floral piece for the cooler months. I wanted to show the wide variety of styles that are available from Dresslily. I have to admit I do have a favourite! Which is the Retro Gingham Bow Knot Flare Dress pictured below which screams classic 50's housewife. However all in all I do love every one of them for different reasons which I will go into more depth in the live review.

    If you are a pinup on a budget and you are looking for some vintage inspired dresses then I recommend giving this brand a go. I was really happy with all of the dresses I received, they were all stretchy and super comfy and would love to try some of their themed dresses too.
