Hi- my name is Jodie and I love pink. Ask me 18 months ago and I would have said I hated it (black was the colour for me) but now I’m in love. I’m not sure if it’s because it’s so unashamedly girly and cute, or because it’s the anti-black but I love pink. In fact I’m going gaga about colour in general.

Not only has my wardrobe gone a girly but I’ve extended it to my blog as well (giving it a little re-design and changing a few features) and I am so happy with it. After attending Blogstock – a post to come soon-I decided to take the plunge and go with my gut and make changes. Hopefully you’ll see some of it in my photos soon too.

Dress: Voodoo Vixen (similar here and here)
Cardigan: Collectif (similar here and here)
Shoes: Mr Shoes (similar here)
Bag: Sun jellies (similar here and here)
Belt: New Look
Petticoat: Hell Bunny
Headscarf: eBay

Overall this look is so silly and girly I loved it more than ever. I can officially say that (although it may not be my firm favourite) myVoodoo Vixen Kitty dress is my most worn item. I wear it at least once a week, and continually get comments on it (you can read my review on sizing here). Paired with my Collectif birdcage cardigan the look it almost perfect.  I only wish I had a white petticoat rather than red under the dress to top of what I really imagined but I am still happy.

The biggest controversy in this look is probably the ridicules hair bow. I’ve been inspired by the famous Bettie Page photo wither in a pink bow to wear them as often as possible- even if my boyfriend always says I look like a present. Wearing a uniform everyday has increased my love of dressing up so I can see the bow as here to stay.

  1. You look just like a doll !

  2. What a beautiful dress! I'm actually in love! Wish I could pull something like this off!

  3. Love everything about this! I think if you're somewhere outside the bell curve of "normal woman" - plus size, androgynous, not white, then you feel like you can't indulge in your girly side the way other girls can? Pink is a colour I never really wear and I look great in it! You have inspired me! xx

  4. You look so beautiful, and stylish. Pink really suits you. Seeing all this 50's glamour is making me want to experiment with colour again or rather just the one colour: pink. I like the idea of going completely OTT with it.

  5. I really like the dress, the cute pattern and the pockets is an amazing detail. It suits you well :)

  6. Girl, I feel the same way about unabashedly loving pink! It looks absolutely astounding on you. The print of that dress is just so cute and 50s. Pink is the best! I can't get enough of it right now and want to actually redecorate my room in pink... maybe that's a thing I'll do. :)

  7. Wonderfully pretty outfit, dear gal. That is such a fabulously fun print!

    Have a great weekend,
    ♥ Jessica

  8. whaaaaa i just felt in loe with your dress, love it so much :D
