One trend that has transcended over six decades and remains a hot ticket item are novelty prints. Whether you are a vintage collector or prefer vintage reproduction, these spectacular one of a kind prints are highly sought after by many. Surely due to their originality and the desire to make a statement by those who are bold enough to wear them. Lately, I have been all about fruity prints and I simply can’t get enough of them in my wardrobe. To my surprise, Gerry from Glamour Bunny sent me the Katy Pineapple Pinup Dress to review and let’s just say, I was over the moon excited with her fruity choice.
Available in sizes XS-3X in pineapple & cherry ~ MSRP £80
When it comes to Glamour Bunny sizing, I find all their styles are very consistent with their size charts. Based on my current measurements (36-27-39), I fit perfectly in their size Medium. If you find yourself in-between sizes, there is a fair amount of stretch to the Katy Dress as it’s made from bengaline and they are indeed designed to be curve hugging. I get so excited when a dress fits wonderfully off the rack and requires no major alterations, it’s a little victory every time. As you can see in the photos, there’s a tad bit of gaping along the front bustline which will be easy to adjust by moving the straps in slightly. The Katy Dress features a lined bodice, adjustable straps (my favorite), an invisible back zipper and lovely kick pleat skirt. The contrasting green trim detail is a fabulous compliment to the adorable yellow pineapple print. Plus, I find that it also helps prevent the yellow from washing out those with a fair complexion like me. At 5′-4″, the skirt falls a few inches below the knees.
It has been some time since I’ve added a new wiggle dress to my wardrobe as they often require a little extra help in the shapewear department. The Rago 1294 girdle is a great pairing with the Katy Dress, creating that sexy hourglass silhouette. The design and quality of Glamour Bunny dresses aren’t one to ever disappoint. They accentuate in all the right places and you can’t help but feel fabulous in them. Needless to say, the pineapple print is absolutely adorable and I think everyone should own it! The Katy Dress is a perfect summer look, taking you from day to evening with little effort. With the modest bust line, I would even venture to wear it to the office paired with a cute cropped cardigan or bolero. I know the Katy Pineapple Dress will be in my suitcase for our upcoming trip to Jamaica!
Now accessorizing the eye catching pineapple print was so much fun; I paired it with a vintage yellow basket handbag, vintage bakelite bracelets to play up the lovely tones in the print and finished off with my B.A.I.T Dennise wedges. I would have loved to own the Andy’s Eye Candy pineapple hair fruits, as it would have been total perfection from head to toe.
Summer is in full swing and the Katy Pineapple Dress is sure to make a statement wherever you go. I have taken to collecting vintage and vintage reproduction novelty prints as they are true collector pieces sure to brighten any pinup wardrobe.
