pretty pretty playsuit

Photobucket

When it's still hot (as March so often is), what better to wear for keeping cool than my teeny tiny playsuit? Perfect for picnics or just lazin' around with some good records... and the heat helps dry a pin curl set. I'm cheating in the first two pics, as my hair isn't up but in pin curls, but then I take all those pins out and *pooof* I have fluffy curls! (Well after the brushing out, anyway!)

This pretty playsuit is by Moxie Minx. It's my favourite one, for both the lovely floral pattern and the cut – the pleated bust and frills on the legs are very flattering details. I plan to wear this in winter, too, with nice thick tights and... perhaps the ankle boots I am eyeing off right now! (Oh and it would go with those purple wedges should I, shouldn't I oh DO make a decision, girl!) xxx

It's gorgeous! I really should get something by Moxie Minx and support a local Adelaide company. ;]

Beautiful as usual. Red is so your colour - I wish I could wear it, but sadly not (still, I have pink, which is almost as good!). I bought a vintage swimsuit from Ebay USA recently - absolutely love it - has that little skirt thing at the bottom - so flattering (I don't have your legs unfortunately!).
Best, Vintage Suburbia x

So cute! I really love the cut; very flattering. Plus the cherry print is pretty much the best thing, imho (I'm a bit wild about cherry print fabric right now ;).

I can't wait to see how you style this for cool weather!

What an adorable playsuit! You look so so so darling and pretty in it. I've been accumulating playsuits like mad even though it'll be months before I can even think about wearing one! How lovely it is to live vicariously through these pretty photos.

Ms. B @ Millie Deel said...

What an adorable suit and I love your hair!!!

Laurel said...

So lovely! I really wish playsuits suited me - they would be much more practical in this windy city on hot (well warm - it doesn't get nearly as hot here as it does in Melbourne!) summer days.

Oh and the turn table! I love love love vinyl. My boyfriend luckily has several turn tables (he is a DJ) for me to play my old records on. I really like the old old ones with the crackle.
