Soda Pop

I've come to the conclusion that the world's best swing dress can be found right here in Australia by the extremely talented Pigtails and Pirates. With adorable prints, figure flattering shapes and some of the best tailoring I've ever owned, I'm forever smitten with their work.

Soda Pop Dress - $199.00

I don't think I've ever worn this much colour in my entire life but do you know what? I'm loving it! This adorable soda pop top printed swing style dress hugs my curves and really emphasises my bust and waistline. I wear a size 14 in this style and the fit is perfection!! The sweetheart neckline and swing skirt work their magic on my busty hourglass frame and I now want to have this dress created in each and every one of my favourite prints from Pigtails and Pirates.

One of the best features of this dress has to be the straps. They are thick, sturdy and hide bra straps with ease. I find most lightweight summer dresses can have flimsy straps that do nothing to hide my thicker Freya deco bra straps but these are perfect!

While I usually don't wear pastel colours I'm loving this mixture of blues, pinks and yellow. This print just pops and will make you smile every time you see it!

I paired this stunning frock with my seafoam bolero from Inspired Insanity and the colours pair so perfectly. I was at a loss trying to find a cardigan to wear with this dress but this colour seemed to complement the print and I think I need a pink and yellow version to wear with this in the future, or even mustard.

Now when you have an absolutely magical multi-coloured dress you need equally amazing shoes to match! The Unicorn pumps from Ellie match this dress to a T and I love how completely unique and fun they are. Featuring a super high heel and platform, white PVC base and upper with rainbow laces and pink bobbles these are the most fun shoe I've every worn! Plus they are so comfortable, as all of the Ellie pumps have a great heel to platform ratio and are super lightweight.
Wearing these has rekindled my love for this brand once again and I will be adding many more pairs in this platform and heel height. I wear a 10US in this style and they fit perfectly. The peep toe also gives you a little more room to move. 

Many thanks to Rom Anthonis for these super cute images!
