This year I have put myself on a rather strict savings plan as I am off to New York again this year in October (freaking yay!). However because of this my normal Internet shopping addiction has been put on hold until I get back. Well that was the plan until I saw that Betty Le Bonbon have started to stock Vanity Project dresses by Limb and I couldn't resist putting through an order, after all I'm supporting local business so really I'm doing a service to my country. Right? Eh oh well...
Anyway if you are not aware Betty Le Bonbon is a awesome brand that specialises in making the most adorable circle skirts you can imagine, and in a wonderful variety of sizes and prints so anyone can enjoy them. I just fell in love with the book print skirt when I saw it, but as one of my 2014 tasks is to make a circle skirt I will have to continue just admiring this one until I succeed in making my own.
Seriously, how cute is that skirt?
Anyway back to the Vanity Dresses. The range is made by a UK brand called Limb who specialises in vintage inspired frocks in modern fabrics and novelty prints. I think it's a match made in heaven that Betty Le Bonbon is stocking them since the designs really compliment each other well. Here are a few of my favourites:
The Hawaiian dress in Black floral
The Hawaiian dress in green floral.
I really really want a tiki dress this year as it's one of the few classic 50's dresses I have yet to own. I love the green print of this dress and the wrap around style of the skirt with accommodate my rather large tush.
June Pencil dress in Peacock with matching Bolero (sold separately).
Polly Pleat dress in Atomic print (love that fabric).
Reverse Pleat dress in Day of the Dead print.
Day dress in Blue Cowboy print.
With so many amazing dresses it was hard to choose one. But in the end I had to go with the Polly Pleat dress in Record print:
I couldn't say no to this amazing novelty print and the sage green trim on the wide neckline and pockets (yes it has pockets too) will go nicely with my ginger locks.
Right now Betty Le Bonbon is selling these dresses at $175 each plus postage and will be placing an order once a month. This month is will be on the 30th of January so be sure to get in quick if you found a dress you can live without. Betty Le Bonbon is also giving away a free Limb dress through their Facebook page so be sure to check them out and give them a bit of love. Plus Jasmine who runs it is a mega babe so make sure to have a gander at her blog.
Until next time,
Your friendly neighbourhood Red Velvet Rosie.
