I had been in search of a cowgirl novelty print swing dress for quite sometime and when I saw this Pigtails and Pirates Ride’em Cowboy stunner I had to have it. The color is a deep vibrant red patterned with vintage pinup cowgirls in a variety of poses and settings. The sweetheart neckline is so feminine and figure flattering and accommodates a full bust nicely. The straps are also a nice size so you can wear your regular bra underneath.
The dress arrived very quickly all the way from Australia (I am in California) and was packaged with great care, it arrived just in time for a photo shoot I had been planning. For the shoot I styled this adorable cowgirl dress with a fun cowgirl hat and vintage lasso. I am wearing a petticoat for added flair though the swing skirt is a nice full size on its own.
