Swing Baby Swing! - Featuring Unique Vintage
Posted on 13 September 2016
Some amazing swing skirts have hit the website and while I'd usually not devote a whole blog post about a skirt these babies take the cake! For the past month I've been travelling around America and I had the pleasure of meeting and working with the amazing team from Unique Vintage when I was in LA. I've been working with this company for a while now from afar but it was an absolute delight to get the chance to model for them when I was in the US!
The one thing that stood out to me the whole shoot had to be the stunning new prints on my favourite swing skirt. From cute to spooky they have all tastes covered with a variety of stunning and detailed creative prints. Just prior to my trip I had the pleasure of shooting the watermelon print and this sold me on the fit and shape of these amazing pieces.
Unique Vintage 1950s High Waist Purple Haunted Mansion Circle Swing Skirt XS to 4XL Plus size - $114.99
For the lovers of all things spooky the Haunted Mansion print is a must have for you! Be it for Halloween or every day wear the stunning artwork that adorns this swing skirt will captivate everyone who lays eyes on it. I've ordered this for myself as I can't wait to shoot this in a creepy Halloween set asap!
Unique Vintage 1950s High Waist Pink & Black Carousel Circle Swing Skirt XS to 4XL Plus size - $114.99
Now I fell hard for this super sweet print while shooting. The scalloped edges on this carousel print really draw you in and the amount of detail and perfect positioning of each horse, pleat and sweet pink or white lime creates the most adorable and stunning style I've ever worn. While I'm not usually a fan of pink I absolutely adore this and want it in my collection as it's perfect for spring and summer. I wear a 2XL in these skirts and there is room to move with the waist band as my measurements are a little smaller and yes that's me in this product shot! I loved how they styled with soft pinks and an off the shoulder cotton tee.
All those summer vibes come rushing in when I wear my watermelon printed swing skirt!! As mentioned earlier I had the chance to shoot this style for my own blog just prior to leaving and all I can say is this is one of the best prints I've ever owned! The simply yet super bold fruit print is both stunning and super flattering and I love how it pairs with not only black but each colour shown in the fabric. Unlike the image above this look was shot wearing a corset so you can see the difference in fit both natural and corseted. I love both!
Finally the sugar filled sweetness of they layered cupcake skirt! With this style it's all about those frosting layers and all the sprinkles. The soft pastel shades make this skirt perfect for summer and I love the modern pinup take of wearing a crop top and a vintage shoe to complete this look. Easily paired with pinks, cream, yellow or blue and don't be afraid to wear all the cupcake accessories and soft colours with this adorable print.
Which skirt is on your lust list?
