Hello summer!! Nothing says it’s summertime quite like a lovely sundress. I had wanted to try the Ella dress style from Pinup Girl Clothing for sometime as I love the dainty bodice, sweet bow detail and full skirt but it wasn’t until now that I got my hands on the Ella Vintage Style Sun Dress with Pockets in Fuchsia Floral Print Pinup Couture and it just might be one of my most favorite styles.
Memorial Day weekend was a scorcher here in California. We were excited for the sunshine and the opportunity to go outside and shoot some photos of this gorgeous dress – Heidi Vintage Style A-Line Dress in Black and White Floral by Pinup Couture. This is the perfect summer dress and would be so pretty to wear to dinner or even a wedding.
My hubby Gary and I drove up to a local wine country town that is usually a tourist destination especially for holidays unsure if we would be able to take photos. We had our masks, were distancing and sanitizer was in our bag. The town wasn’t too busy as nearly all shops and restaurants are still closed and folks are staying home. The park had a good amount of folks picnicking and enjoying being outside with friends. Everyone was social distancing and we felt comfortable walking around and enjoying the day.
Summer is just around the corner here in California so that means cool mornings, hot days, and cooler night temperatures and these kinds of temperatures can be hard to dress for. I am going to introduce you to a brand that I recently became acquainted with Love Ur Look London and today I am sharing the beautiful 1950s Atomic Dress that has become one of my go-to dresses for summer.

Feminine, elegant and effortless are words I think of when I where the Pinup Couture Jenny Dress in White and Lavender Floral Print. I had been yearning for a pretty floral dress for quite sometime. When I saw that a white and lavender floral print Jenny dress was coming soon I could not wait to get my hands on it. The florals are so stunning in colors of purple roses, lavender hyacinths and blue orchids and then there are the pretty green leaves all set against a white base. The material is the Pinup Girl luxurious sateen that breathes and moves and looks so stunning. Perfect for Spring and Summer and all year long.
My hubby Gary snapped some pics of me in the dress this past weekend; we have been having a lot of rain and the moment in California and when it stopped for a bit we were out front taking pictures. Even little Luna wanted to get involved!!
The Jenny dress has become one of my wardrobe staples and I don’t have nearly enough!! When you are a full-busted gal like myself it is very hard to find dresses that fit, have style, and come in great prints and that is why the Jenny is a staple for me. I always feel put together and effortless. I know I look glamorous and elegant and that gives me so much confidence. The Jenny dress is styled after the 1960s sundresses. The first thing you notice when you step into the dress is that the bodice is lined, boned, and fused. The straps are adjustable so you can show as much or as little of your curves as you are comfortable with. Because of the adjustable straps and boning, the dress has incredible structure and will flatter a range of bust sizes, even those of us blessed with full-bust lines can comfortably wear this gorgeous dress (without a bra) and feel very put together and chic. The skirt on the White and Lavender Floral Print Jenny is a very full circle skirt and the material is a luxurious sateen that holds pleats and shape incredibly and this version even has pockets!! Zips nicely up the back and nips in your waist. Be prepared for lots of compliments!!
I am wearing this Jenny White and Lavender Floral Print in a 2XL (all my Jenny dresses are 2XL) and this size accommodates my full bust, yes, it is very roomy in the waist as I take XL in Jenny skirts but I love having the option of adding a belt to take in some of the excess fabric if I prefer, depending on how much waist definition I want that day. Pairing a cardigan has never been easier as having so many lovely color options in the floral pattern makes it so easy. The skirt is already full but if you want even more fullness then a petticoat underneath will give you that extra volume. This print is beyond beautiful and you will be so happy with it. Hurry and get yours before they sell out!
