Blogging has truly been a blessing in so many ways and allowed me to get to know my readers on a more personal level. In the early beginnings of Pin Up Persuasion I was contacted by the super sweet Jasmine, who had just started her own business – Betty Le Bonbon Cheek Boutique. A mother and daughter team, they design for women of all ages, shapes and sizes with a focus on curvier figures. BLBB is one of a kind with the most unique variety of fabrics offered in custom designs at an affordable price. As soon as I laid eyes on the breathtaking peacock print, I had to have it in my very own circle skirt!
Available in sizes 28″ – 45″+ (custom sizing as well) in a multitude of colors & prints ~ MSRP $55-$100
Having the option of custom sizing was a bit daunting initially as I have always shopped “off the rack” with my online purchases and feared I would mess it up. Quickly I grabbed my favorite PUG Doris swing skirts as reference to see how the waistband measured compared to my natural waist. Also, keep in mind you get to pick the skirt length as well; measure your favorite skirt or dress from the waist down to get a firm idea of what looks good on you. After chatting with Jas, I decided to order the peacock circle skirt in 30″ waist and 26″ length with a 2″ deep waistband. When my package arrived, I couldn’t help but squeal with delight as the peacock print was truly breathtaking with small hints of gold. The fit was spot on and the metal hook with zipper back closure was so well constructed.
BLBB circle skirts are fabulous for every day wear and versatile based on the tops you pair it with. I have to mention the quality of these handmade skirts are incredible and worth every penny especially since they are not being mass produced. I opted to take advantage of their Layby program in order to pay for my purchase over a period of time; their terms are VERY reasonable to say the least! Click here for more information.
Your options are endless…pair it with a tank, a tee-shirt, a blouse, you name it! The BLBB circle skirts are great for the office, a family BBQ, engagement photos, or a soiree with a loved one. Separates are always a must in any retro wardrobe, they never get tired. The peacock print is truly spectacular and works with so many colours. A personal favorite is pairing it with the peach Deadly Dames Vamp top to bring out the eye of the feather.
BLBB has recently announced some pretty exciting news…they will be offering vintage inspired dresses very soon! You can also find super cute retro aprons and totes as well. I am so proud of how Jasmine’s business has blossomed in such a short time and wish her continued success in her new endeavor! Check out her fabulous blog –> Here <–
