Stop Starring!

When I first started to get into the pinup style of dressing I think my first ever frock was from Stop Starring! I've seen their dresses all over the press and the classic tailoring is loved by many Hollywood starlets.

I've admired their classic shapes, perfect wiggle dresses and vintage attire for a while now but I had not slipped into a dress from their line for around 4 or 5 years. I originally had 3 amazing dresses in my collection but I was a size 2x at that point so when I shrunk they left my wardrobe for new lives.

But I have always kept my eye on all new stock and when I saw this dress I had to have it! Although I'm always more inclined to wear a wiggle dress apposed to a full skirted dress the feminine shape and print called to me.


Stop Staring Rose Swing Dress - $150.00US

Made of a gorgeous rose print drapey fabric that feels glamorous to the touch. The fabric has little to no stretch, if you are in between sizes, please order up. Dress is fully lined. Off the shoulder (kimono) sleeves are very accentuating to your neckline. Overlapping bust detail shows the perfectly modest amount of skin. Midriff and waist are fitted, and fall into a full swing skirt.

The print just pops on my fair skin and I adore the flattering cut of this dress it really make your waist look tiny. I'm wearing this style in a 14 (which is a 1x via the size chart) which is a little roomy but you know my obsession with waist belts so this was easily fixed. I think if I was to order this knowing the fit I would have got a Large with my measurements. But due to the style its not a loose fitting issue at all.

The fabric falls perfectly and like many other swing styles I've worn this dress makes you want to twirl and dance up a storm. I think I need to wear it out this weekend!


The bust will also look great with ample or not ample bosoms. This cut has a deep v bust line but this will suit large and smaller chests.

There are so many new styles online right now via the Stop Starring! Webstore from pinup perfection to 40's inspired suits and retro separates.
