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.

Finish the ensemble by adding a touch of volume to the dress with the Black Tea Length Petticoat Crinoline.

There’s no denying how much we adore The Great Gatsby. What’s not to love? Fabulous parties, beautiful dresses, and of course Leonardo DiCaprio. Lucky for us,  prom this season, we were inspired to capture the glitz and glamour of Gatsby and the 1920s with some of our favorite flapper dresses and art deco-inspired accessories. Are you ready to party like Gatsby this prom?

Intricately beaded with diminutive flowers, a sheer skirt, and plenty of Gatsby-era charm, Mignon’s Ice Blue Mermaid Gown is perfect for flaunting your curves while dancing away the night. For added 1920s flair, style with the Gunite Long Pearl Necklace, the Silver Glitter Barrel Clutch, and the Black Caged Peep Toe Heels. Of course no flapper can be seen without a perfect red cupid’s bow. Paint your pout with our very favorite cherry red lipstick by Besame and you’ll look like you stepped straight out of the novel.

Every girl needs the perfect little black dress and as soon as we saw the Black Cherry Dollface Wiggle Dress we were in love. This delectable wiggle dress stars off sultry with cross over straps, a plunging sweetheart neckline, and a curve hugging silhouette and finishes flirty with a playful ruffle hem. We added some retro-inspired finishing touches and, voila! Instant pin up fabulousness!
