Très chic

Recently a wonderful care package arrived on my door, inside my most lusted after Wheels & Dollbaby garments and a little note from the super stunning  and talented Melanie Greensmith.

Since trying the knitwear range from W&DB I've been interested to know the fit on other garments so when these arrived I started to plan a shoot to suit these perfectly!

With a small sent built in my house  Keren Dobia (photographer), Dani Frankenstein (MUA) and I went to work on showcasing these amazing garments on a curvy figure!

I've found my perfect black pencil skirt! The stretch jersey fabric in this skirt allows for the most figure hugging perfect fit. The fabric is thick and sturdy and bounces back into it's original shape after each wear. Topped off with an embroidered Wheels & Dollbaby logo this is an essential wardrobe staple.

I'm wearing this garment in a size 14 and the fit is spot on!

Now I own this style in black but as soon as I saw the red version I knew I needed in my life. This is a classic must have the range. From the front it appears to be a simple yet stunning cardgian with a small 'Dollbaby' embroidered on the bust. Turn around and you have the classic Wheels logo motif on the back with roses, dollbaby and the Gretsch guitar! I can't wait to pair this with dresses, more skirts and high waist jeans and shorts. This style suits everything in your wardrobe!

I'm wearing this style in a 16 and it's a little roomier obviously than my black which is a 14.  I do like the larger fit for this cardigan so the back print does not get stretched.

How adorable is this top!! The delicate ruffle around the neckline and sleeves, the soft stretch fabric and the very sweet wheels and dollbaby charm make this a classic pinup style top. Fit wise this top is soft, super stretchy and form fitting. The arm wholes are perfect for my upper arms which I personally think are rather large. I'm wearing this top in a 14 and it is perfect! The fabric allows a little give so being inbetween sizes I know that this style is a good fit at a 14 and I will pick a few more up in the future. 

Horizontal stripes only make your curves more curvy so don't be afraid of them! 

Not a fan of the nautical stripe? Well you can pick from a variety of different colour combinations in the cupcake ruffle top :

Red/Black, Black/Cream, Leopard/Black, Navy/Black, Pink/Cream, Cream/Black all $99.00

Dita Cardigan Sold Out but Navy is in stock - $190.00
Luichiny Eye Doll Platforms in Black - $89.95
Beret - Myer
Torrid Bow Belt - $24.95US

I wanted to work my favorite style the Dita Cardigan into this shoot as well. You can read all about the fit of this item in my previous blog : Dita Cardigan - Perfect for Curves!

The essential logo skirt works perfectly both with tops tucked in and on top and by adding a simple bow belt you can make it look like another skirt or dress (if you pair this with plain black).

I will be living in these items all year round!!

I can't thank my amazing team on this shoot enough!  Keren Dobia is such an inspiring and creative woman and a joy to model for! Dani Frankenstein did an amazing job at turning my plain face into pinup perfection and I can't wait to work with her again. Thank you so much ladies it was an absolute pleasure to work with you.
