I am a huge fan of animal print. Some days I will wear four different prints (my boyfriend will then tell me I can’t wear so many different prints at one time, but I disagree). Leopard is, of course, my favorite. So, you bet when I saw a glimmer of leopard print as I opened the box of a new pinup girl shipment, I got just a little excited ( I already new, without having to open the bag, which dress it was). The new Betsey swing dress by Pinup Girl is absolutely darling!
The Betsey has a huge, full skirt, so it would be amazing with a crinoline ( or two). It also has adorable little heart shaped pockets on the front. It features faux buttons down the torso, adjustable straps, a thin black belt, and a back zipper, with some stretch along the top, in the form of elastic. I purchased a medium and it just fits- it is slightly snug along the top of the chest and underarms, but not so much that I would consider going a size up.
I didn’t accessorize this outfit too much. Just my favorite Fly London chunky kitten heels and a red flower in my hair. I had a few extra minutes to spare that morning so I did my hair extra nice, because I left my lovely new dress deserved fancy hair. I had never gotten so many compliments on my hair, as I did that day! Around these parts, you don’t see a whole heck of a lot of retro styled hair ( its more like, bleach blonde or black, crazy extensions, and big, bumpit/snookie hair- okay not everyone, but lots of girls!). Anyway, I was quite pleased with my self, so its needless to say, I had a great day- its amazing what a pretty dress and a good hair day can do!
This is by far my new favorite dress ( I know, I say that about everything). I of course got my Betsey at Rowena– they have a full size range in stock, so if you’re in town, I head there and snatch one up before they are all gone! RetroGlam.com will have them up shortly as well, just in case you don’t live in Edmonton
I hope you all have a swell day!!
