Lauren Blair in Mary Blair: Airplane Print Heidi Dress
I don't know what it is about these Heidi dresses, but when I shoot them things go awry! Last time in my Elephant print dress I was having technical difficulties and this time around it was sprinkling on me and I could only get a few frames. So, I'm 0 for 2! Oh well, some of the pictures came out decent or at least useable so here we go!
For those not as familiar with vintage reproduction clothing, Pinup Girl Clothing put out a new collection this spring called The Magic of Mary Blair. Mary Blair was a female Disney animator in the 40s and PUG got in touch with her estate to make a limited edition line of clothing based on her illustrations. For us vintage loving girls, this was a bit of a dream come true and we all collectively started foaming at the mouth. This is the 4th piece I'm showing y'all (I have a list with links at the bottom of this post if you missed my other outfits) and I have two more after this to showcase, which barring from amazing sales will likely be it for me.
As most of you know, I'm a bit of a skirt princess. They made this print in a skirt but I really loved how the red trim and belt tied the whole dress together. I loved the shape more of the dress than the skirt version as well, so when it went on sale over Memorial Day it was a no brainer! (I've worn this dress since then but this is somehow not only it's debut on the blog but even on Instagram!!)
I used to be obsessed with matching everything to exact colors. Even when I first got this dress I was initially thinking red heels, duh, or at least blue or white ones. But since I've been more into using less than obvious colors to pair with outfits, I decided to go for yellow accents mainly. I used red only once in my earrings (from Old Navy) but I used yellow for the other accessories in my hair flower (NicCoco Creations) and shoes (Jessica Simpson) to make it all more primary color based and hopefully pop more.
