Heart In A Cage

Junebugs Dress in Birdcage Print in Blue

I can't sing enough praise for the Junebugs and Georgia Peaches collection from Pinup Girl Clothing.  There were a few pieces I couldn't wait to add to my closet and then there was this Junebugs dress.  While I love a great novelty print, the collar kind of scared me.  While visiting the boutique with Sammi last week I decided to try it on for fun.  It may not have come home with me that day, but I couldn't stop thinking about it.  And as you can see, it's now a part of my dress collection.  I even got a sweet compliment from my husband when I wore it!  I guess collars aren't so bad after all...

With the exception of the Dee Dee dress, I would say I'm an XS in the Junebugs and Georgia Peaches collection.  I tend to be between sizes, especially if it's a wiggle dress, but I can comfortably size down in this dress.  I love that it's very fitted in the bodice but in no way uncomfortable.  The zipper in the back is long so you can actually step into this dress, which is a major plus in my opinion.  The skirt is full and structured and doesn't need a petticoat or underskirt.  I wear an underskirt almost daily and I opted to go without one for this outfit.  Plus, there are pockets, very large functional ones!

If you haven't yet heard, you can now purchase your Erstwilder brooches directly on their site!  With over 300 designs, their website is now a one stop shop.   This Guitar Hero brooch is one of my newest additions and I love it so much.  The pink is so vibrant and works perfectly with this dress.  Make sure to check out their new website and new Vintage & Rockabilly collection.  It's my favorite!

  7. I love the way this seems to fit. A lot of dresses seem to not have a nice fit look or are too uncomfortable looking but this one is gorgeous and comfy looking and I like the cut of it all!
    Lovely!!!
