Pinup Christmas #2

I am so sorry for the lack #pinupchristmas outfits! This is only my second one and it’s already the ninth of December; how horrid! This cute outfit embodies the festive spirit from my vibrant red Lindy Bop dress to my Elf hat – it’s the whole shabang. I know A LOT of you enjoyed my cupcake decorating photos from earlier in the year so I thought I would recreate it but make it more CHRISTMASSY (honestly, I have never said that word as much as I have been in the month of Blogmas). The cupcakes I’m baking here are using my favourite chocolate cupcake base with mint icing and minty chocolate from Whittakers – there will be a recipe post up later this week so stay tuned. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as my boyfriend and I enjoyed taking them!

‘Dolce’ Pink Spray Floral Swing Dress from Lindy Bop – Review

16-10-11-miss-flossypots-69Whilst I was up in Auckland a couple of months ago I had the opportunity to shoot with an amazing photographer by the name of The Undefined Photography. I thought I would dedicated these high quality images (I wish all my post’s photos were this nice) to a dress review – after all I love this dress! A huge thank you to Katherine ( The Wardrobe/The Undefined Photography) for giving me such an incredible experience – she made me feel so comfortable during the photo-shoot (which is no easy feat, I’m an awkward person) and she made every photo look incredible and each photo feels unique and different to the rest. Check out her blog here – she has amazing outfit of the day posts and interviews with some incredible pinups such as Miss Hero Holiday and Miss Victory Violet plus she is just a beautiful person inside and out!

OOTD – The Ella dress in Izu from Lazybones

Well we all know how much I love the brand Lazybones (here’s a link to a previous review of the lazybones Laura dress in watercolour)! Lazybones has been a stand out company for me ever since I first laid my eyes on the Laura dress in Watercolour in a local repro shop (and I bought it that day)! Lazybones isn’t targeted at the pinup community but embraces key components of 1950s  dresses with a twist – full circle skirts that are mid length, fitted bodices, capped sleeves AND the prints!! Lazybones prints are by far my favourite they have such a vintage vibe to them without looking kitsch or tacky – I love them!! Can you tell I’m a fangirl?? For this post I am going to keep it as an OOTD as my last post on Lazybones was a review but I will bring up some points from the last post here!

MISS FLOSSYPOTS’ WINTER WARDROBE WISHLIST

Well, it’s finally here.. Winter. It was inevitable really but I was still hoping it wouldn’t happen. Unfortunately I have zero winter approved clothing but I do have at least ten dresses made out of the lightest cotton ever and a few cardigans from k-mart (which aren’t doing the trick)! So I’m left with hypothermia feels every time I leave the house or in fact the comfort & warmth of my bed.  So I have come up with a Winter Wardrobe Wishlist. This is a general overview but I feel like it covers all of the bases; warming factors and keeping my cheesecake pinup aesthetic – cute and practical. I hope this can help some of you that are having a style block or just need some encouragement to buy more clothes. Please excuse the huge Collectif Clothing influence – there are just too many nice things on their website!!

OOTD -25/4/2016 – PINK AND BLUE

Saturdays are one of my favourite days of the week; I get to spend the day with my boyfriend, go food shopping, laze around and last Saturday was no exception! I’ve been dying to wear an amazing hair scarf that I had won in a pinnylicious giveaway but I felt that all my of my dresses weren’t the right shade of blue. That is until I realized I had the perfect dress in my wardrobe all along; a turquoise dress with pale pink flowers  that matched the turquoise and pink of the hair scarf perfectly – as soon as it clicked I knew I had to pair them together.
