10 Vintage Style Bridesmaids dresses

May 22 2017, 0 Comments

It is coming to that time of the year again!

Wedding Season!

 

And what comes along with this season for every bride?

 

That hard to decision of what to get yours bridesmaids to wear. Should I got for a traditional bridesmaids dress, should I purchase online or instore? What colour? Or should I choose floral print? What style of dress with suit my bridesmaids and should it be long or short?

 

The list of questions and decisions is endless, and for some Brides to be this can actually be the hardest decision of  their entire wedding!

 

But why? I hear you asking.

 

Well as much as any Bridesmaid of Maid of Honour will say to the Bride "Pick anything you want, even if it is a potato sack I will still wear it and love you"

 

But no bride wants that! All that every Bride wants is for her Bridesmaids to look amazing and feel amazing in her Bridesmaids dress and if you you have a Bride that has chosen to have a few different ladies as her Bridesmaids and they happen to be different sizes, body shapes or have different styles & colouring, this can become a never ending, tedious dilemma for any Bride-to-be.

 

These days almost anything goes for a Bridesmaids dress and lots of Brides are looking at alternative dresses for their Bridesmaids and are choosing vintage style Bridesmaids dresses which is creating a new fun feel to their wedding day and photos.

 

But this still does not make the choice any easier.

 

So without further adieu I have compiled a list of 10 of my favourite options for Unique and Vintage Style Bridesmaids dresses.

 

1. Unique Vintage 1950s Style Red Rita Halter Flare Dress - This dress has such a refreshing vintage style halter neck which if you ask me should be featured on a lot more dress, that beautiful cutout detail works well on ladies of all bust sizes.

 

2. Lady Vintage Sapphire Rose Tea Dress - The floral design on being navy & pink which are some of the most common pairing of colours for weddings make this beautiful vintage style tea dress perfect for a lovely shorter bridesmaids dress.

 

3. Unique Vintage 1940s Navy Floral Ashcroft Short Sleeve Swing Dress - This lovely soft flowing navy dress featuring a gorgeous wide peephole & capped sleeves are impossible not to feel comfortable in for a long day running around being a bridesmaid.

 

4. Voodoo Vixen Charlotte Dress - Did you ever want to incorporate your love for cats into your wedding subtly? Well here is the perfect way with this gorgeous vintage style maroon cat print dress with an elegant cross over design on the bust that no one could resist.

 

5. Hell Bunny Black Dahlia 50's Dress - For the cooler weather wedding this iconic 50's dress with wide collar & 3/4 sleeve will keep your Bridesmaids looking gorgeous and feeling unstoppable all day long.

 

6. Unique Vintage 1950s White & Pink Stripe Golightly Bow Swing Dress - This style suits every shape and size and will give you an extra cute touch with the bow across the chest.

 

7. Lady Vintage Twilight Lily Floral - This dress make a bold statement next to your wedding dress and isn't of detracting from the colour of your dress like some may think will actually make you stand out ever more again the beautiful deep purple in the background of this floral Bridesmaids dress.

 

8. Hell Bunny Pink Lacey 50s Dress Pink - As pink is always a popular colour for Bridesmaids to be wearing I could not go past this beautiful floral number with would be a play on the traditional style pink Bridesmaids dress, perfect length of this dress being just below the knee works for the bride that wants a dress that is not too long and not too short (It's just right!).

 

9. Hell Bunny Mia Dress - For a garden wedding this would make a stunning vintage tea dress with the striking red colour that would stand out beautifully against all the greenery and the beautiful lace colour that adds that touch of elegance, you bridesmaids will feel fun and flirty in this little dress.

 

10. Lady Vintage Antique Rose Tea Dress - Gold is a very popular colour for bridesmaids dresses too and the floral print on this dress is subtle and brings a beautiful edge to this dress with the standout red roses amongst the print.

 

 

Thank you for taking the time to take a look at some of my suggestions for alternative and vintage style Bridesmaids dresses and I hope that you find the perfect one for you and your Bridesmaids.

Charming this Christmas with Lady Vintage

December 02 2015, 0 Comments

 

Christmas is one of the most wonderful times of the year, so much joy, love and giving going on around the world which is such a beautiful thing and in my opinion should be happening all year round.

 

 

The holiday season is also filled with an abundance of events including work Christmas parties, family gatherings and of course all the regular birthdays, engagement parties and weddings that are always going one.


So especially at this time of the year you need something that you look fabulous in and not only that, something that will make you feel amazing too.


I don't know how your family is but I know we have some relatives that we only see this one time of the year because we aren't that close, and even if you aren't doing amazing you atleast want to look like you are. And you know what they say 'Dress as the person that you want to be'.


We have gotten a couple of especially gorgeous dresses in from Lady Vintage just in time for this silly season and they and being made out of 97% cotton they are perfect for the summer months coming up because cotton is so soft and breathable. There is nothing worse than being stuck with all your family on a scorching hot day in an uncomfortable stuffy dress!

 



 

I would like to now introduce the 'Winter Floral Dress'
This is the class Tea Dress from Lady Vintage with a vintage rose and leaf print that is so alluring you will never want to wear another dress again.





The next dress is the 'Antique Rose Dress' again it is a classic Tea Dress from Lady Vintage which has a very earth set of colours with the hints of red and green popping out which create a striking affect that makes you want to keep staring at the pattern.

 

We are still waiting on some more amazing dresses to come in store before Christmas.


But until then check out what amazing vintage style dresses we have in store and Merry Christmas and enjoy all the Christmas cheer going around.

Comfiest big hooded black coat I have ever come across

August 21 2015, 0 Comments

Hey everyone!
I am back from Japan and ready to give myself completely to my online store.

So today while I was sorting through some stock I found this gorgeous coat which just does get enough love.


My first thought was "Why are there two zips?

Then I realised that the first one is for a shorter layer underneath so that the cold air can't get in and it zips up around your neck to keep it warm from the wind without the need of a scarf. Handy huh?


The benefits of wearing a cardigan underneath your jacket without the bulk.
Seriously I am already so in love with this coat, it is so functional!

If you don't care about it keeping you warm and just want to be stylish this coat seriously has it all!
A big hood, baggy sleeves with wide bands.
As a functional loving person this coat cover all my boxes with is big pockets and being made out of 100% cotton I don't think it can get any better.

If your in the markets for a coat and want stylish functionality then you don't need to look anymore.
I have found the perfect one right here for you.


Now as much as I would love to keep talking about how obsessed I am with this jacket all day I should probably get back to my sorting.

Sending warm hugs and love to everyone.

Keeping warm on cold winter days

June 24 2015, 0 Comments

Every person has that one thing that they love to do on a cold winter day.

Whether it be getting the family or friends together and playing board game, snuggling up in front of the fire or watching a movie.

Some people like to go for a run to warm themselves up or go to the Aquarium or shopping at a mall to escape the cold.

Whatever it is I believe that the  need that one warm jacket that is your go to jacket.

 

And I believe that we have just the jacket for you.

 

This jacket is big and comfy, not like those snug ones that just don't fit right.

It has a big hood, to make sure it covers your head properly, with some faux fur around the edges to keep your face nice and warm.

The length is nice and long so you can make sure it will keep the top of your legs warm, especially if wear leggings is your thing.

Elastic around the wrists and the bottom on the jacket make it super snug so that once you get warm there is no way for a cool breeze to get in around it.

Last but not least this jacket is detailed with cool studs down next to the zipper, around the hood and those big pockets which would be perfect for your large smart phones.

 

I can easily see myself wearing this jacket all winter paired with a pair of Blackmilk leggings.

 


The Charlie Leopard Print Dress

May 13 2015, 0 Comments

The Charlie Dress is one of our most popular dresses and for obvious reasons!
But let me tell you it's feature points:

  • Stunning Leopard and Rose print material
  • 50's style length and flared skirt - this looks amazing on anyone
  • Halter neck - to show off your gorgeous back
  • Zip up back - so you can easily get in and out of this dress
  • Black waist band - to break up the colour and emphasize your bust
  • It can be worn as is or with a petticoat
  • Loose and flowing, very light - for comfort


I could go on and on about how I love this style of dress and the print, but I think that you get the point now.

We are now stocking Voodoo Vixen

February 16 2014, 0 Comments

It is always really exciting for me to come across brands that I really like and want to stock in shop.
So when I came across Voodoo Vixen the other day I immediately went to their website and registered for a wholesale account and within 24hrs was approved and after a couple of hours of decision making I decided on 4 dresses to order in and trial.
These are some gorgeous dresses that they make and I will be highly surprised if everyone does not love their items the way that I have fallen in love with them.
I hope that this brand even be as popular as the Hell Bunny dresses that I stock.
c5ea1018-85a3-41e2-8c01-d98fd1ef9147wallpaper
The dress that I have chosen from are 
Top left: Pink and Green Pencil Dress
Bottom left: Flowers Pencil Dress
Top right: Emerald Peacock Skater 
(this print comes in other designs but this was my favourite and depending on the response to this I may get it in some other styles)
Bottom Right: White Flower Dress 
( I saw this dress last minute and opted for it and it's cute sailor style over one of my other favourites).
I do get excited when dresses sell well, but for me it is not about the money it is about providing women of Australia with amazing dresses from overseas at a reasonable cost.

The excitement that we get from buying a new dress is absolutely the best for me and I love it when customers send me photos of them enjoying their purchases from my store.
If there is ever an item from any of the brands that I stock, or even new brands, that you would like me to get in please do not hesitate to ask I am more then open to new brands and items that everyone will love.
Warmest Regards to all
Anneliese

New Online Store Coming

February 15 2014, 0 Comments

changes-ahead-exit-sign

Ok so from the beginning and starting my website I went with Volusion as my ecommerce website solution based on a friends recommendation and after a little bit of research it seemed to be the best with 100 products for about $30 a month.
I soon found out that these "100" products meant that every size on a product that I put up was also counted as a product and when having 3-5 sizes in each item that cut me down to about 25 items so I quickly ran out of space and have not been sure what to do about it and let my website run into the ground a little bit and my stock inventory would also randomly change with them and I got to the point where I needed to bite the bullet and make a change.

So about a year ago at a friends party I became friends with a guy who was running a webdesign company out of his garage, Black Nova Digital, and I decided in taking my leap of faith and spending a large amount of money on a proper web design and set up that I would go with him for the fact that I will be confident in the work that I am getting done and if I can invest in a friends small business I will, I know small businesses can be tricky at the best of times!

I have been working with them for the last month on different ideas for the website and it is now coming up into it's final stages and will be based in Shopify which will be alot cleaner and easier to manage and hopefully I can start getting alot more customers through my website, because lets face it the one that I have at the moment is terrible and people don't really take a second look at it.

Within the next month hopefully the new website will be up and running. And I just wanted to keep everyone up to date with what was happening with me and the shop of late.

Warmest Regards
Anneliese

Something that every girl looks forward to in the their life.
Getting Married!

Today I was contacted by a lovely lady who wanted to purchase 10 of the lovely
Hearts & Roses London Pink Long Floral Dress.

H&R

For the special occasion I gave her 10% off because I know that when it comes to
your wedding wherever you can save a little bit it’s going to help!

I am so excited that I could help her out with theses dresses for her bridal party.
It’s just made me really happy.  :)


What do you get when you purchase an item?

August 30 2013, 0 Comments

Every item that I sell before I send it out I:
1. Wrap it in tissue paper.
2. Tie a ribbon around it.
3. Attach a premade origami bow to the ribbon.

Every item is wrapped with love are care and finished with an origami bow that I make while watching my favourite tv programs.
Why? because I know if I bought something from an online shop I would love to get it wrapped up especially for me, it would make my day. And I think everyone should be made to feel wonderful and special.
This is my little bit that I give back to my customers.

HELL BUNNY I HEART ZOMBIE PINK MINI DRESS REVIEW

July 26 2013, 0 Comments

I Heart Zombies!

I heart zombie dress hell bunny pink

This gorgeous pink mini dress with zombie unicorns, girly skulls, stars and polka dots printed all over it is made out of cotton.

A black collar helps break up all the bright colours of this dress and the v shape front with the gathered skirt is so flattering on every figure.

The halter neck helps with a small boost of cleavage and shows off your shoulders and upper back, which personally helps make me feel a little sexy without showing off too much.

Perfect cross between grunge and girly in this dress. Show off a bit of your inner girl without compromising too much in this stunning dress!

Hell Bunny dresses not only have amazing prints but also have amazing designs that show off a woman’s figure.
Which is what makes me love them so much!


New deliveries are coming in

July 20 2013, 0 Comments

Today I got my first delivery from a new supplier

Hearts and Roses London

They have some absolutely gorgeous floral prints and the dresses come in all different lengths, now they are a little bit more expensive that what I normally stock but I promise you they are amazing quality and definately worth the extra bit of money.
Also I tried on a size 8/XS in one of the dresses and it was a little bit small so please be aware that the sizes run a little small!

photo (5)
For the moment I just got 3 different dresses with the above prints, all are incredibly gorgeous with a white base colour which gives them a really light feel and makes the colours really pop!

What do you think of these 3 prints & which is your favourite?
And are there any Heart and Roses dresses that would like me to stock?
