Blooming into 2017 with the Annie from Dolly and Dotty

Hello darlings! 

So 2017 has finally begun and I don't know about you but I'm feeling like 2017 is my year to blossom, to keep on growing and to keep building a happier me. I have so much awesome stuff coming to the blog in 2017 and I cannot wait to share it all with you. To start of a year I'm hoping to blossom in, I wanted to start with the gorgeous Annie Dress in Pink Florals from Dolly and Dotty.

Flowers ~ Delightfully Dainty Double in Pink from Daisy Jean Floral Designs
Earrings ~ Lilac Eclipse studs from Revere Folie
Beads ~ Lilac Beads from Debstar Designs
Brooch ~ Vintage Rose Brooch
Dress ~ Annie Dress in Pink Florals from Dolly and Dotty
Belt ~ Lilac belt from Gywnnies
Shoes ~ White Sandals from I Love Billy Shoes
The stunning Annie dress has quickly become a favorite in my wardrobe for its comfortable fit, beautiful tones and versatile styling! When it arrived in Australia all the way from the UK, I was instantly taken by the bright pink floral pattern, which truly is more stunning in person than pictures give it credit. Lacking sleeves this dress is perfect for the coming summer months here in Australia or easily accessorized with a cardigan or bolero for ladies in cooler climates or who prefer to not have their arms on display so much.

The Annie dress is a versatile, simple style which makes it great for gals of a variety of shapes and for a variety of different occasions. The Annie dress features a simple bateau neckline with a high back: making it a great option for more corporate wear or formal occasions, as well as an everyday winner. The sleeveless design lends itself to the warmer months we all experience at varying times of the year. To help give a streamline figure the Annie also features box pleats to help smooth the hips and tummy, whether you're wearing a petticoat or not. She also features a back zip with an eye hook for easy wear.

The versatility of this amazing dress is really what pulled me to it. While the floral pattern may be very busy, the single colouring makes this dress a dream to accessorise! So far I've matched it with navy and lilac for this shoot. I cannot wait to see what other colours I can team it with. The Annie does come with a matching belt, but I prefer to personally mix bolder busier prints with solid colours to help the waist pop. 

The Annie is made from cotton and does have a little stretch. I'm wearing the size 14 which going off their size chart is the size I should wear. I've worn this dress a few times now before this review and have found it incredibly comfortable both with or without foundations. A gorgeous dress that flatters the figure, is comfortable to wear and is fun in its print. If pink florals aren't your thing, the Annie also comes in Wine Floral, Blue Floral, Black/Pink Floral, Black Floral as well as polka dots in white/red, black/red, black/white as well as a stunning beige check. There really is an Annie for everyone!

The Annie also won't break your bank, sitting at around £29.99/$51AUD + postage, depending on the exchange rate on the day. This is a great dress for gals new to pinup looking to add to their wardrobe as well as a great staple for more seasoned pinups as well.

I hope you've all enjoyed this review and I'm looking forward to bringing you all more great posts in 2017!

Til next time darlings!
