Back in June Papow and I were lucky enough to shoot in an enchanted woodland set. As you are probably thinking this is a little different to the normal pin-up sets that we have visited in the past. However, it was time to embrace something a little different.
Now, obviously being Florence Flounce I had to bring in some kind of vintage/pin-up charm to the shoot so I opted for the Glamour Bunny Cindy-Gingham Rockabilly Dress.
What Glamour Bunny say:
- “In a soft stretch cotton, this lovely little wiggle dress in a 50’s dress style”.
- “A great pin-up dress for that retro look”.
- “Style: Pencil Dress, Wiggle Dress, Retro Dress, Pin-up Dress, Rockabilly Dress, Vintage Style, Retro Style, Pinup Clothing, Retro Clothing, Rockabilly Clothing”.
I have always been a fan of red gingham and so was instantly drawn to this dress. The flower detail around the bust only adds to the charm of this beautiful dress.Here I am wearing the dress in a small (Bust 34″ Waist 26-27″ Hips 37-38″ length approx 40″) however it is available in an X-Small to an XXX-Large. This dress retails at £86, but as always with Glamour Bunny clothing, this dress is beautifully tailored and of an extremely high standard, so it really is an investment piece. One could style it up as I have here, but it would also work well with flat Converse, a denim jacket and every day hair and makeup for a more dressed down look.
All in all this dress puts me in mind of fairy tale characters such as Gretel and Little Red Riding Hood and (although perhaps a little more busty than our childhood story book friends) it is simply perfect for this set.
To complete the look I accessorized with my red hair scarf from eBay, red plastic bangles and hoops from George at Asda, the red 2 inch elasticated waist belt from Vivien of Holloway and my red suede court shoes from New Look.
As for my hair, I did a heat pin-curl set the night before the shoot. Then in the morning I brushed this out and styled my hair into a single victory roll at the front of my head. I then pulled the rest of my hair up to the top of my head and pinned the curls into place. Finally I tied my hair scarf around my head.
As always a huge thank you goes out to Darktechsupport for his photography and editing. I had such a great day and the images are simply stunning, I hope you al like them. Please stay tuned for Papow’s installment on this shoot, where she will take you through her own outfit, hair, makeup and shots from the day.
