 When I saw this dress I felt like it was made for me! I just loved the hand-made details that had gone into creating it! The hand done embroidery ammm wow! I purchased it off the lovely CheshireVintageShop  who has an Etsy store with lots of fabulous goodies!

After the dress arrived I knew I had some goodies that would compliment perfectly with it! My gloves and my pearls of course! I felt inspired to find a unique hand bag and well oh la la  Miss L Fire had the perfect bag for this outfit! As it was a day wear outfit I felt I wouldn’t wear high heels and opted for cute but practical Bait shoes.

Miss Pin Up Outfits! – The Day and Photo Safari

 Miss rouge- PhotoSafari1

A lot of love, care and thought went into all of my Miss Pinup New Zealand outfits as I know so did all of the girls!

 I passionately feel that I should only wear items that I love, as I feel clothing can alter the way you feel about yourself an how you can represent yourself. I am a lover of true vintage pieces, I love that they have history and can be saved and loved all over again. I have a clear love of pastels, florals & sparkly things which you can see from my choices.


The reason I choose this outfit is the colours! I was saving the dress which I had been given for my birthday back in November and I had been waiting for the right occasion to wear it. I loved the contrast of the emerald green and the pinks. Plus the hat! how fabulous is the hat! Also I was able to wear my Late Nans brooch which fit perfectly for the theme of the outfit. Finally the petticoat was the finishing touch to bring out the greens! This dress is a dream to wear it is super comfortable and perfect in the colder months.

On the day of The Very Vintage Day Out I was searching for a bag to complete the look, thinking it was a lost cause! But can you believe I found the perfect match from Bella Vintage! It was so ment to be!

The photos of me were taken at the photo safari by the lovely photographers! It was such fun getting photos taken by such a variety of photographers! I would so love to see more of the photos from the day! I have found it hard to credit the photos but you can look at The Very Vintage Day Out page to see more images of the day.
