I have to thank Fleur de Guerre for this recommendation, and it's certainly a good'un! Outer Limitz Clothing are a British-based company who create ever so pretty 1950s vintage pin-up and glamour-inspired Hawaiian dresses, custom dresses, accessories and some extra fabulous 50s playsuits, among other things.
I am particularly enamoured with this pretty little polkadot number, which would be lovely to wear to the beach. Of course, it's only for sunning and not for swimming, but I don't think that's a great loss!
For those of you who aren't experiencing the early Australian summer, there are plenty of treats to see you through a very colourful winter - just pair pretty frocks with a vintage coat, and make sure your parties are indoors!
