Gumball Pinup - Featuring Unique vintage
Posted on 28 May 2017
A few weeks back the amazing Unique Vintage Gumball Machine swing skirt hit our webstore and I instantly snapped it up and started to plan the perfect phototshoot for it. I gathered my cutest moto, a bright bubble gum pink moto jacket, Care Bare cupcake platforms and all the right accessories and I headed down to Coastal Victoria to shoot with Brooke Orchard.
It was our goal not only to shoot this outfit in the perfect way but to try and capture the fun and adorable nature of the print with bubblegum and lots of kitschy goodness. Unique Vintage always create the best prints and perfectly place their patterns with flattering cuts and swingtastic borders.
Size wise I tend to go for the 2XLs in all Non Stretch items from UV and an XL for super stretchy fabrics. This skirt has little to no give so be sure to order the size that works best for your natural waistline. The waist on the 2XL fits perfectly and I really love how the pleats flatter your shape as some styles can be a little too bulky.
Now how amazing is this print? Never did I think that a gumball machine could work let alone rock and flatter a woman's shape but the position of the print and using the base of the machine as the border really makes this skirt an absolutely dream. Plus the colours featured within the print make styling and accessorizing and a breeze. Just pick a gumball colour or one of the main colours and pair with a cute blouse, cardigan or, as I have, a tank and moto jacket. You can with basic black or shake it up a little and go crazy with colour as this style suits both perfectly.
Here at Cherri Lane we have the best Australian based stock of Unique Vintage and you can be reassured that whenever an amazing print or style is released in the swings we will definitely have it in stock. In sizes XS to 4XL you will be able to find the best fit and the best prints with ease so be sure to measure your natural waist and check the size charts.
