OOTD: Strongman Swing Dress

April 9, 2014 by Unique Vintage | Lifestyle, Pin Up, Vintage Inspired

Theres something magical about the circus with the amazing acts, exotic animals, and delicious sweet scents of cotton candy and caramel corn. The instant we saw the Blue and Black Stongman Swing Dress we were head over heels in love. We adore statement prints and this little showstopper of a frock is adorned with a festive vintage-inspired circus print that we just couldn’t pass up.
