Printed Pretty

This week I wanted to showcase some of my favourite styles in some of the hottest prints! I always find myself drawn to the stunning polka dots and darker floral 40's numbers within UV and lucky for me their shop is jam packed with so many printed pretties right now.

With a wardrobe full of Formosa Dresses you can believe me when I say that this dress is the bomb!! Such a flattering fit for all shapes and sizes and the flowing fabric is an absolute dream. I've reviewed this style in nearly every print available and each are perfect. I wear a 2XL in this style as there is not much stretch and with my GG size bust it fits perfectly with a little room to give at the waist. 

I paired this stunning floral number with my amazing Vizzano Charlotte heels. Such a dream to wear! 

The fabric is a soft, lightweight and the small rose print adorable. I'm such a fan of a black based floral print as they are dark enough for my 'must wear all black items' obsession white still being super feminine. 

As you can see the Formosa obsession continues! This time in a silky satin red polka dot print the same as I've previously shot in black and white. The bold red base of this soft and silky fabric pack a colour punch and you will love the bright, bold print. I must admit I feel like a 1940's Minnie Mouse in this dress but in the best kind of way. I've found that the satin styles have a little more give in comparison to the crepe version above. But still as with all non stretch items at Unique Vintage you should compare your measurements with the size chart and if you are on the cusp purchase a size larger. 

Everyone needs polka dot prints in their wardrobe! I'm usually only a fan of the standard black with white dot print but this dress has won me over! Now all I need are Lolita red heart shaped sunglasses to pair with it! 

From a tested favorite to a new style for my collection - the Delores! I've been eyeing off this dress for a while in black, red and navy blue but I've never committed until the black and white polka dot version was released. The Delores is a super stretchy swing style with a gathered deep v bust. I wear the stretch fabrics ant UV in an XL and this fit is perfect! Now usually my bra does not pop out but when wearing an amazing under bust the twins tend to pop up higher than usual hence the bra showing. The end result I actually love as it kind of works perfectly. 

This has to be my new favourite style at Unique Vintage. From the full skirt to the 3/4 sleeve this dress hugs me in all of the right places and covers up my problem areas such as tummy and upper arms. 

I paired the Delores with my new Vizzano Chloe Peep Toe Ankle Strap Pump in Red from Shoe Me Gorgeous. Just like the black strappy Charlotte heels above these shoes are made for comfort while still being stunning and super high in the heel department. Cushioned so your feet no longer ache, you can wear Chloe all day and you will not be cursing your shoes when you finally get home. I love the deep red vegan friendly fabric and I can't wait to get my hands on more of their styles as they are a dream to wear. 

Many thanks to the amazing Damien Bowerman Photography for working with me on this photo shoot. I feel so lucky to have crossed paths with him and I can't wait until our next shoot!!
