Feeling Fancy? ~ Fancy Flamingoes with Silly Old Sea Dog

It’s funny how something as simple as altering your hair colour can change your wardrobe preferences. As a redhead, I wore a LOT of green and most of my wardrobe was strong bold colours! Since transitioning to blonde, my wardrobe has incorporated more pastels than I care to admit, as I absolutely adore how they play to my blonde locks now. I’m also an big fan of small businesses, especially being a small business owner myself! So when I was contacted about collaborating with Silly Old Sea Dog I was beyond excited to share their amazing business with you all!

Silly Old Sea Dog is an amazing small business hailing from England. One thing that caught my eye about Silly Old Sea Dog is that they identify as a body positive brand (something I strongly believe in) and carry their sizes from a UK size 6 right through to a size 24. They make appearences at Clothes Show Live, Viva Las Vegas, Paris Plus Size Fashion Week, other vintage events as well as being a monthly contributor to Vintage Life Magazine. With all their designs made in their small factory in Scotland, they are completely made in the UK. We settled on the 1950's Style Flamingo Dress for me to share with you all and it is honestly such a stunning dress I instantly fell in love!

Shipping to Australia took around 2 weeks, which is fairly standard for most postage to Australia from anywhere outside out our down under. Made of 100% cotton, this gorgeous dress features a mint body and base with flamingos bordered around the skirt. Despite having sleeves to just above the elbow, this dress is still incredibly cool to wear in warm weather, thanks to its cotton fabric. I got the size 14, which is a little loose through the waist but a fit everywhere else (for me this isn't anything new with fit). Another thing to note is that it was also a comfortable fit on my arms, which is also wonderful! There is nothing worse than a dress fitting everywhere except your arms. Length wise, its a little short than I normally wear but in summer I'm  sure this will be a welcome change, if Sydney Australia's last summer was anything to go off.

 I love the fun pastels in this dress and I'm so excited for our recent cool snap to pass so I can bust this beauty out. As I also have two Flamingo brooches I already have some different outfits to wear this gorgeous dress with! Silly Old Sea Dog Dresses are also lined through the bodice as well for a more comfortable fit. A back zip for easy wear and I can get myself in and out of this dress, which is something I like as it means I can wear it on days my partner works without any issues. While now days I don't wear petticoats that much anymore (they aren't allowed at my job) Silly Old Sea Dog do sell petticoats that will fit under their gorgeous dresses.
