The Betty Boo and Sally green peacock dresses are fantastic holiday dresses that are both under $100. The Betty Boo is $95, while the Sally is $84. Both of these dresses are available in sizes: small, medium, large, and extra large.

Voodoo Vixen brings us another beauty- the Ava dress. I enjoy the fabric of this dress, which reminds me of the late 60’s, but with a more 50’s cut. This dress is a lovely holiday dress if you are looking for something a bit more modest. Available in sizes: small, medium, large, and extra large. The Ava runs a touch small, as Meagan sized up to a large. For $95 the Voodoo Vixen Ava is a great little frock for the holidays.

The Viviene also from Voodoo Vixen is sassy dress for those fun holiday parties, where you know you can let loose. Not only is this dress leopard print, but it is velour and very stretchy ( a.k.a comfortable). The Viviene comes in sizes: small, medium, large, and extra large.

The Viviene is available in store or for phone order

_DSC3473e_DSC3474eHell Bunny has made an absolutely divine wiggle dress that screams Mad Men! I left like Joan in the Bernadette and once I saw these photos I was sold on it. This dress has a ton of elements that make it holiday worthy- the color, the lovely waterfall on the hip, the sexy fit, and the sweet keyhole neckline. The dress is available in sizes: extra small, small, medium, large, and extra large. I wore a medium in the Bernadette. This dress is only $66 and at the price you could get one in every color ( also available in plum, black, and red)

Hell Bunny also present us with the Benita, a very simple, elegant black dress. Its three quarter length sleeves, high neckline, and below the knee hemline makes this dress highly versatile! While I was very covered in this frock, I still felt very sexy. The Benita is available in sizes: extra small, small, medium, large, and extra large. This dress runs a bit big, as I fit into a small perfectly.

what i wore: hellbunny flamingo swing skirt

Hey Kittens, Im back! Sorry it has been so long since my last post, I have just been super busy. But I am hoping to be back to regular posting! This morning I had some time to get a few pictures of one of my new favorite skirts…the HellBunny Flamingo swing skirt. Like I have said before, I am in love with swing skirts this season. I am not one to wear much colour, but I loved this skirt so much, I don’t even care how bright it is!

I paired it with one of my many new crop tops ( this one I got from Garage Clothing, I wore it previously with my Bettie Page Swing Skirt) and my favorite wedges by Dolce Vita.

I bought mine at Rowena and I know they still have them in stock. I don’t see them on their website, RetroGlam.com but they have a ton of other HellBunny items and I know they do phone orders ( which are super easy by the way).

I got mine in a medium and it fits perfectly. The anchored HellBunny swing skirt I bought in a large, but it has a thicker waist band, so for the flamingo one, I recommend getting your regular size.

This is the perfect summer skirt! In case you didn’t figure it out, its covered in flamingos, hibiscus flowers, and palms. Its nice and breezy, so it will keep  you cool, but its also uber cute! I got quite a few compliments on it today!

*please excuse my messy bedroom; im working on redoing it!

what i wore: hellbunny anchored swing skirt

I have another outfit post for you! Again, I had a few minutes to spare while getting ready, so I seized the opportunity and took some photos of my outfit. I purchased the hellbunny anchored swing skirt a couple of weeks ago…I actually bought it the same day it was unpacked from the box at Rowena. My summer obsession this year will be swing skirts. They are so flattering on my body shape and are both fun and casual, as well as classy and sexy. I especially like to wear cropped tops with swing skirts, which is the only time I can justify wearing a cropped top ( on myself anyway).

I paired my anchored swing skirt with a lil zebra print tie up top from Forever XX1, gorgeous bordello shoes from Rowena, black fish nets with a red back seam, and my most prized piece of jewelry -an anchor charm necklace from Tiffany.

This skirt has two anchors on the pockets, thus named the anchor skirt, and white stripe trim along the bottom. I had to size up as the medium was just too snug ( although I still wear a medium in the flamingo print skirt); there are two cute white buttons on the back above the zipper as well.

I got mine at Rowena and you can get one there too, or if you don’t live in town, you can order one on RetroGlam.com. This hellbunny skirt is the perfect summer swong skirt! I am quite happy with all a ton of the hellbunny this season, so keep an eye out for more posts on all the lovely items I get this summer!
