Outfit // Girly in Gingham

Hello, hello! This week has been flying by and now it is already halfway over! Work has been quite busy for me so far this week and will only get busier since I am on duty the entire weekend with the kiddos I nanny for because their parents are going to be away on a trip. I love the girls I nanny for, though, so it should be a great (exhausting) weekend!

Anyway, it has been quite a while since my last outfit post, but here I am today with something new from Voodoo Vixen's spring line! What better way to kick off the spring & summer outfit posts than with this lovely dress?!

This is my third Voodoo Vixen dress and honestly, each one has been better than the last! I didn't think it was possible to top the other two beautiful Voodoo Vixen dresses in my closet, but this one... I am just in love with it! It is really perfect in every way.voodoo vixen, spring, vintage, style, retro, pinup girl, dress
I love a good bow, so I thought that this black belt I had would be a nice match for this outfit!voodoo vixen, spring, vintage, style, retro, pinup girl, dressvoodoo vixen, spring, vintage, style, retro, pinup girl, dress
This is the first gingham patterned item that I have ever owned, and I must say, I am a fan! I think it is the perfect pattern for spring and summer. Plus, this fabric is so light and airy! Also, this pinkish-orangish color is just the right hue for warmer weather months.voodoo vixen, spring, vintage, style, retro, pinup girl, dress
Sidenote: my hair has gotten so long these past several months! I think it has sort of reached its peak in length and I am debating whether or not to leave it as it is or to cut it. If I cut it, I had a long bob or some sort of wispy, wavy bob like this or this in mind. I would also probably have some side-swept bangs cut in. What do you think? It might be nice to have a fresh start for the warmer seasons ahead!voodoo vixen, spring, vintage, style, retro, pinup girl, dressvoodoo vixen, spring, vintage, style, retro, pinup girl, dress
The diamond shaped cut-outs on the neckline are also such a nice, interesting touch! It adds a bit more uniqueness and femininity to the dress, don't you think? I appreciate the small details like this that Voodoo Vixen usually adds to their designs!voodoo vixen, spring, vintage, style, retro, pinup girl, dress
I'll be honest, I don't do a full face of makeup every day. You know, the eyeshadow, the liquid liner, and the lipstick. Most week days, I throw on some moisturizer or maybe some BB cream, and that's about it! I am a student and work with kids every day, so let's be real, it doesn't matter all that much if I am wearing makeup or not. So, it is definitely nice to have fun getting all dressed up on the weekend! I thought that a nice winged liner would be the perfect look to go with this dress. I also figured that you can never go wrong with a red lip! (Question: would you guys ever be interested in a makeup tutorial of some sort? Maybe just a post or a vlog?)

To say I feel fabulous in this dress would be an understatement! I have come to a conclusion about Voodoo Vixen and their designs: they just get me. They understand how a woman's body works and all of the right places that a dress should hug or nicely skim over. They understand curves. I think this is precisely why I have felt so wonderful in each dress I have received from them and why I really feel that I can order with confidence! It is a great thing when you can feel beautiful or maybe even hot (or dare I say...sexy?) in something, let alone in something that isn't showing too much. Know what I mean?

Thanks again to Voodoo Vixen for sending me this wonderful dress to feature here on the blog!
