Flower Power: Miss Candyfloss Nima Sue Review by Sarah Dietze

I’m a sucker for sweepstakes. The chance of winning, no matter how slim, and the opportunity to daydream about becoming a winner, is too much to resist. Until recently, my last sweepstakes win was a Carmen Sandiego CD-ROM from Wendy’s (I’m dating myself, but still). After entering dress, jewelry and gift card contests from nearly every pin up retailer on Facebook, I was starting to get discouraged. I wanted to win something this millennium.

Pic 1Imagine my surprise when Miss Candyfloss contacted me as the winner of their most recent contest for the Nima Sue dress! I found out after attending the Blackhawks Stanley Cup parade as it passed by my office, so I like to think the Cup brought me good luck πŸ™‚ I responded to Noemi at Miss Candyfloss immediately and wanted to share a little bit about what makes this dress special.

Pic 2The print and color of this dress remind me of the Hell Bunny Mayday Dress, one of my favorite dresses, so it’s perhaps not surprising that I loved the fabric as soon as I put this dress on. I thought the light blue and baby pink might be too much in person, but they’re muted yet springlike.

Pic 3The dress features rushing along the bust, contrast pink trim and a side zipper. The halter straps fasten with three fabric-covered buttons, a nice change from the usual ties. The small fit perfectly – my measurements are 35″-28″-38″ so I lucked out and didn’t have to guess when it came to sizing. The length is perfect for tall gals. I’m 5’9″ and didn’t feel like I was wearing a mini dress, as is often the case with reproduction vintage dresses.

Pic 4While I wish the dress had a full circle rather than a swing skirt, it’s still perfect for twirling. One chiffon petticoat provided enough oomph without making the skirt too poofy. Given the print, I kept accessories simple, but couldn’t resist continuing the floral theme with pink floral earrings and a white hair flower.

The Nima Sue retails for approximately $135 USD and is currently available in XS-4XL from Miss Candyfloss!
