Alfred Shaheen x Unique Vintage
Stepping into Summer with a classic Hawaiian print from the new Alfred Shaheen x Unique Vintage collection inspired by the original Alfred Shaheen 1950s & 1960s prints & silhouettes. This collection is a tropical dream featuring beautiful Hawaiian themed prints on classic summer favorites like the iconic sarong style dress & mens cabana set. Unique Vintage announced that this collection would carry matching "Mommie & Me" dresses for all the retro mommies out there & they certainly didn't disappoint. The Blue Tapa Tapestry is an official licensed Alfred Shaheen print that was very popular in the 50s & 60s, this print is available in a matching family set.

The Alfred Shaheen collection is perfect for summer all of the designs are made out a beautiful 100% light weight cotton fabric. The material has no stretch so be sure to check out the size chart for the perfect fit, I am in between sizes so I did order up a size because the fabric has no stretch. The size I went with in the Blue Tapa Tapestry Sarong dress was a tad bit loose in the waist as expected but over all the fit was comfortable & relaxed. The sarong silhouette is classic & a beautiful reproduction, I love the way the skirt wraps & I love that sarong can be worn as a halter or a strapless dress. The sarong dress comes with a removable button shoulder sash as well. 
The little girl dress in the matching Blue Tapa Tapestry Swing Dress is so adorable, my little one loved her dress!
The dress is a halter style dress with an adjustable strap, the sides are smocked for comfort, & the dress has a zipper on the back. I love that this dress is a mini version of a classic 1950s swing dress, it is so adorable & my daughter loves doing princess twirls in it. 
This dress is made out of the same 100% cotton material so it does not have stretch. 
Available in sizes 2T-5T!
The Mens Cabana Blue Tape Tapestry Set is so Blue Hawaii! 
A classic 1950s retro style featuring a button up shirt with coconut buttons in the original reproduction Alfred Shaheen pineapple, hibiscus, geomatic pattern. The shorts are sold separately, my husband doesn't usually wear this style of shorts so it was a new experience for him. The shorts are smocked around the waist & features an adjustable pull string. The shorts are lined on the inside & feature a little pocket on the side. 
This set runs a bit a small so I would check the size chart for the perfect fit.

1940s Susie Saddle // RoyalVintage

RoyalVintage Shoes
Today's style feature is all about SHOES I am so excited to review another style from one of my favorite footwear brands RoyalVintageShoesI did a review a few months back on one of their newer Spring/Summer styles called the "RITA" a gorgeous 1940s platform slingback, with darling laces & classic 40s details - click here to read all about them! 

I was so excited when I received the Brown/White Susie Saddle Shoes in the mail, my grandmother had a pair when she was younger in the iconic Black/White style & I couldn't resist getting a pair of my own. At first it was not easy deciding on which color I wanted the most & I think I argued with myself for at least a day or two before finalizing on a color. They offer the Susie Saddle in a two toned Navy/White, Brown/White, or Black/White, I finally decided on the brown & white color way. I went with that style because I have quite a few 1940s pieces that will pair up beautifully with them & I thought why not try something a little different. This type of shoe was a very popular style of footwear in the 1940s & 1950s, especially for Women & young girls. RoyalVintageShoes modeled their Classic Susie Saddle style after an Original Spalding Ladies' saddle shoe, I must say they really look & feel authentic. 
When ordering I did go with my usual size & found that they were a perfect fit, the quality is absolutely amazing they use high end materials such as real leather uppers, durable rubber soles with welt stitching, & the classic two tone is spot on. There is a cushioned pad near the arch of the shoe which I found to be quite comfortable, especially since I walked around in there for 4 or more hours. I would note that the saddle shoe style is tampered towards the toes, so do keep that in mind when ordering. Overall I love this reproduction of the classic scalding ladies, they are beautiful in person, even my grandmother said they looked very authentic, I also enjoyed pairing them with my 1950s Freddies of Pinewood jeans. I definitely recommend RoyalVintageShoes especially if you are looking for high quality vintage inspired footwear, they are priced reasonably & they really are amazing.

Summer Sunshine

Summer Sunshine 
The sun has been shining bright & the weather is getting warmer by the day, so to brighten up my blog here is a gorgeous sunshine mustard yellow dress from MissCandyFlossI have quite the collection of MissCandyFloss designs & I have their online store bookmarked on my iPad so I am always prepared for when new arrivals drop online. My mustard yellow obsession is growing & I can't believe I was so reluctant to try this color, because I was seriously missing out! When MissCandyFloss launched their "When in Holiday" Collection Look Book I was making a wish list & this gorgeous dress was on the top of that list. The chevron pattern on the bodice was so unique & I really loved the yellow/white color scheme. 
The Allegra dress has a lovely fit with a classic 1950s swing dress silhouette, I went with my usual size & I am glad I did because this dress allows for a bit of wiggle room. The buttons on the bodice are working buttons so you can undo a few buttons, & the dress also features a hidden side zipper, making it easy to get in & out of the dress. I don't really wear petticoats that often & I decided not to wear one with this look because I wanted more of a casual look. Unfortunately this dress sold out so quickly & I am not sure if it is getting a re-stock date but, if you are interested visit their Instagram for stock updates & new arrivals. While keeping this look casual & vintage inspired I went with my off white Phyllis heels from Golden Age Hollywood & a beautiful custom off white hair flower piece from Niccococreations. Of course for an added touch of Old Hollywood Glamour is key to a vintage inspired look, I am wearing my favorite beauty brand Besame Cosmetics in their shade 1941 Victory Red

1950s Flirty Florals

1950s Flirty Florals
I was so excited when I heard that Unique Vintage was going to team up with Mad Men's Award Winning Costume Designer Janie Bryant for another amazing Spring/Summer collection featuring designs inspired by the 1950s & 1960s. The Janie Bryant for Unique Vintage Collection has all the kitschy novelty prints a vintage gals heart could desire, from darling poodle prints to flirty florals. I love all the Vintage Inspired styles they are offering in the collection such as pedal pushers, 1960s summer dresses, halter sun tops, & even playsuits like this super cute Pink Floral Striped PlaySuit with a matching removable Summer Sun Skirt.
 I love Vintage Playsuits especially during the Summer, because they are perfect for a day of Summer Fun!
The Floral Striped Playsuit is made out of a light weight 100% Cotton, the material has no stretch so be sure to visit their size chart before selecting a size. I did go with my usual size in Unique Vintage but, I did find that the playsuit was a bit to small & tight in small places. The playsuit does have adjustable straps so I tried to loosen the straps to make the fit a bit more comfortable, I should have sized up to a larger size. The removable summer skit fits perfectly & is made out of the same light weight fabric, it has darling details like the button closures & the three little bows along the opening. The skirt can be worn with a side slit or can be worn fully closed. 
I paired this flirty floral look with Splendette's latest Spring Collection featuring some gorgeous pastel floral bangles, here I am wearing the Briar Rose set in a matching pink blossom set. I am wearing the Wide Briar Rose Bangle, Midi Briar Rose Bangle, Narrow Pale Pink Glitter BangleNarrow Briar Rose Diamante Bangle, & the Pink Glitter Bead Necklace. For an added touch I am wearing my Pink Floral hair piece from Niccococreations, visit her shop for some custom made beauties.
