I couldn’t believe how much Cadillac, my new German Shepherd puppy was growing. She seemed to be getting bigger and bigger with every day that passed. Therefore, I knew that I better start capturing these precious moments, before they slipped away and were gone forever. I mean, how much longer would my gorgeous girl fit inside my washing basket for? With that, I grabbed my camera and made the most of my opportunity.
For this shoot, I chose for myself, a gorgeous ‘Emma’ style Vivien of Holloway dress from Christine’s. It was a limited edition print called ‘Scallop Rose’ in a lilac colour. This sassy little number also featured an elegant crisp white collar and V back with a full skirt and slightly dropped (and super flattering) piped star waistline.
These ‘Emma’ dresses were actually so popular that they completely sold out, not too long after they arrived here in Australia, from where they are made in the UK. As some of the Vivien of Holloway designs and fabrics are limited editions, dresses like this one are unfortunately no longer available once sold out. Even though this style is not being made anymore, there are plenty of other stunning 1940s and 50s vintage reproduction garments available from the Christine’s website, as well as from a number of other fabulous stockists.
Since no outfit would be complete without stockings, I chose out some classic seams from the collection available at my studio. These ones are style # 4960, which feature Cuban heels and back seams, adding a touch of glamour to every outfit, especially when worn with a fierce red lipstick. The one that I decided to wear for this photo shoot is a ‘Blu-Red’ shade coupled with some ‘glossy gloss’ from Pout Perfection. This kiss-proof formula sure is impressive!

Ultimately, a few dolly pegs and a bra strap was sacrificed in order to create these images, but I’m pretty sure that it was totally worth it! I am always going to cherish these photos of our very first puppy and pinup photo shoot together. ❤
