Shimmering Sharkskin

This Bettie Page dress makes an appearance once or twice a year during Winter.  I am aware it's not the most flattering dress I could wear, with it being double breasted and my breasts being on the large side, but for some reason I don't want to sell it.  Maybe because it shimmers and glistens and makes your eyes go all funny when you try and focus on the gingham pattern.

50's style Dress: Bettie Page
Atomic Brooch: Lucy Luxxe Designs
Shoes: Rebel London


  1. Sharkskin suits and podesua bags/shoes! This is fab! Hang on to it forever!

  2. It's nothing short of gloriously gorgeous!! I think that the cut is really becoming on you actually. Instead of making your bust look wider as double breasted garments can on just about anyone, I think that the narrow placement of the black buttons actually has the opposite effect and draws the eye in towards them, thus narrowing (or at least not widening) the bust.

  3. Its a beautiful and eye-catching frock and you look gorgeous in it.

  4. You have amazing style. You look gorgeous. Where abouts in Aus are you from? Visit my blog and let me know if you want to follow each other? xx

  5. It looks even more vintage the hair short and a little straight than it used to be long.
    It looks really good in the two bottom photos, my favourite look.
    It was a good change, it complements even better your look.
    plus... short hair makes you look taller, long hair makes you look shorter.

  6. Lovin' the dress and lustin' after the brooch!
