I ♥ BabyGirlBoutique.Com!

My Dear Friends,

I was lucky enough to review two amazing items from the online retro store Baby Girl Boutique.  I'd had them on my radar for a while now, as I really love vintage style clothing.  Never to be called a 'one-trick pony', Baby Girl Boutique offers many different varieties of clothing & accessories.  Whether you're into Vintage, Burlesque, Rockabilly or Pin-Up - they've got you covered.  You can even shop by holiday or event!

I really enjoy how you can really get everything you need, full circle, in one place.  The website itself is very user friendly and easy to navigate.  I was also impressed by how unique the clothing items were.  The styles and designs are very impressive.  Baby Girl Boutique also offer shoes, jewelry, cosmetics, hosiery, & hair accessories.  P.S. - Don't forget to check out the sale section!

The two items I reviewed were from the Broad Minded Clothing Line, which is available for purchase via Baby Girl BoutiqueBroad Minded Clothing features skirts, dresses, swimwear & separates for those "clothes minded broads".  Based in Portland, Oregon, the line is inspired by all things indie and retro - which is easy to see from their fantastic designs.  They use only top quality fabric in their designs, which is evident in how well-made each item is.

The "Marilyn in Madrid" Red Twist Bust One Piece Swimsuit with Shirred Modesty Panel Front was an instant favorite.  As soon as I saw the picture, I thought, "Yes!  This is what I've been looking for!".  I tend to gravitate towards a one-piece swimsuit, and since I'm "chesty", it's quite hard to find one that fits like it needs to.  This swimsuit was everything I could have hoped for.  

This incredible pin-up style swimsuit features a gathered-front bust detailing, soft bra cups, and ruched sides. The suit itself is fully water & swim safe and lined in the front. This 1950's era inspired swimsuit ties at the back of the neck "halter style".  The material is 100% Lycra fabric.  The sizing is "misses" and does run large, so I would advise that you order down a size. This suit is a steal at $53.00, down 25% from the normal price of $84.

My second review item was the Glamorous 1970's Vintage Reproduction Red Jersey Knit Long Halter Dress with Plunging Neckline.  Why did I get a dress that was so daring?  Truthfully, I'm not sure, but I am really glad I did!  I think I chose it because of how versatile it is & how many ways it can be worn.  I can't wait to wear this dress when the weather is warm, say to a picnic or a day at the beach.

I loved the 70's feel of this dress, which was adapted from an actual 1970's pattern. The halter maxi dress is made out of a gorgeous, top-quality bouncy matte jersey knit fabric. The halter neck slips over your head (it does not tie at the back of your the neck) and the back is open. The maxi dress length, which was so popular in the 1970's, is experiencing a revival today, as evidenced by the maxi dress craze going on in most retailers.

I do feel that the overall shape and silhouette of this dress is 'seasonless', meaning that it can be worn all year long.  Pair it with a big floppy hat and long beaded necklaces for a hippie or boho look.  Add a pair of heels and some simple jewelry for a night out dancing.  Layer a tube top under the dress & a cardigan over for a simple look that is perfect for a day of shopping with your friends.  The possibilities are vast with this dress!   All sizes are in "misses" form.  This dress is also on sale for $79.95, down from the original price of $110!  What a steal!

All in all, I would highly recommend those who love vintage fashion to shop at Baby Girl Boutique!  With high quality items, extremely fast shipping and a wonderful customer service staff, you can't go wrong!
