I decided to make a couple of collages for my retro summer floral inspiration! Often times clothing with floral designs tend to look too girly or cutesie, cheesy, and a bit annoying. These prints however give me a different feeling, which I am not ashamed to wear at all!
1. SWIMSUITS I’m really glad that I can pretty much go anywhere to find one piece swimsuits with a retro flare. It used to be hard to find cute styles in a one piece that was not a monokini. Of course I prefer shopping actual vintage when I have the choice to, because the treasure you find is unique. Joules is a store you may or may not have heard of, but oh boy… their retro-style womens swimwear are to die for! I put up a few of my favorites on the collage above— Bluposy, Ditsy, and Navlor.
The models above are from vintage swimwear catalogs from Catalina. I think these swimsuits would’ve been enjoyed by women then as much as we do now, don’t you think?
2. SUN DRESSES
Unbeknownst to me, I realized that a lot of my favorite past outfits on this blog involve floral designs. I wouldn’t normally admit that, because as much as I don’t like girly things, I tend to dress up that way! So for the more non-girly girls who secretly like florals, here is more eye candy inspiration for floral dresses from Joules. I was inspired to make paper dolls as the theme of this collage, and I found these two Doris Day paper dolls online to top it all off! Isn’t she de-lovely (*ahem* Cole Porter)?

I saw a few dresses that I utterly liked on this site called Atterley Road, and I thought I’d share them with you. It leaves me having a good feeling featuring a more “indie” brand versus featuring the fashion brand monopolizers. The name Atterley Road kind of made me think of The Beatles’ album Abbey Road, so I chose a selection of black and white dresses to feature (the early Beatles uniformed look, of course).
NW3 Chiara Dress – I will always be a fan of the mod look.
Second Female Guess Dress- Tribal / ghost apparition (?) prints have been my favorite pattern this year.
Hobbs London Victoria Dress – 50s/60s cut bodycon dresses are elegant and very feminine.
Which of these styles best suit you?

Not too long ago I reviewed a “wholesale” handbag site. Today, I’m introducing you to an online clothing store called Merzost, my newest sponsor, that has wholesale prices (you can buy items individually) on cute Korean-type clothes and shoes. They have dresses as cute as ModCloth’s but with prices mostly under $30. Beat that. I think you can agree that everyone’s on a budget (especially this Christmas!).
Though some of these dresses may be a tad too short for some of the taller gals, you can always use these dresses like a tunic. I like to wear mine with leggings and just go nuts with the layering for winter styling.
