Roxy

I had big dreams for photographing this dress - it truly deserves to be flaunted at a funfair with candy floss, being twirled by the seashore or being draped with a (faux) fur stole and taken to dinner.  Sadly the weather has put paid to those plans (will it ever stop raining? Must I build an ark and find another fluffy white dog to pair with Bodhi and sail away?) - and so it has had to put up with being twirled in my hall and flaunted in the confines of my home only. But it shall have its day!

dress: voodoo vixen, £49.99* // shoes: vivienne westwood/melissa dupes

The beautiful Roxy dress is from Voodoo Vixen, who make vintage-inspired clothes with an infusion of rockabilly, retro and pin-up styles.  This dress is very well-made, fully lined and with a very flattering shape. For anyone who likes vintage-inspired clothing this site will be well up your street.

I think if I had to pick an era to grow up in it would have been the 50s.  I'd love to have sported beehive haircuts, gone to roller discos and worn horn-rimmed glasses and bomber jackets. I think I'd have liked to have been a greaser girl like Rizzo, with tattoos, big sunglasses, pencil skirts, bandannas and victory rolls.  I did once master a beehive for a vintage party, it took flippin' ages, though it was fun - this is from back in March 2012!


Are you a fan of vintage, or vintage-inspired fashion? Which era would you have liked to have grown up in?

    Also in regards to your yoga- there's a place in boscombe that does bikram heated yoga and they do £30 for 30 days or something similar...alternatively just read about mindfullness and sun salutations, one of the therapists at work taught me about both a few years back and I honestly couldnt live without either xo
