Mustang Sally

I don't know why but for some reason whenever I wear this dress the song 'Mustang Sally' by The Commitments seems to plays a loud in my head. Is that just completely insane? But you know what? It just does as this dress for me is quite the fabulous little number. This particular dress by Viviene of Holloway really isn't one for the faint hearted. It's one of those 'occasional' dresses that comes out only once in a while because it's so out there but always makes an impression! These are the next series of shots from my retro shoot that I did with the beautiful Adora taken by her Mummy Elizabeth.

This shoot was so much fun and I simply loved styling Adora in all my vintage and retro gear. That girl suits any style of clothing you put on her! Not to mention she's a dream to photograph too! In between me posing I couldn't resist whipping out my camera too and taking some stunning shots of her (Which she'll share on her blog too!). 

I simply adore wearing retro style dresses as they instantly put me a fantastic mood- I would highly recommend it if you're feeling a bit rubbish one day! Whip out the red lippy, a swing dress and a petticoat and I guarantee you'll be feeling fantastic in no time! x


  1. So unbelievably gorgeous, and that song always pops in my head when I'm wearing something retro! Hehe! These photos of you two are SO stunning.

  2. AMAZING PHOTOS!!! I love both of your dresses so much, and of course you managed to find such a pretty location! I always love it when bloggers take photos of cute houses - and I admire your nerve too - I've always wanted to take outfit photos in front of a pretty house but get toooo stressed about being told off.

  3. You look fantastic, Rebecca! I love the pinup look! :)

  4. Rebecca you looks absolutely stunning! I need to invest in a Viv dress it seems!
