Last weekend, we took the kids out to Tower Grove Park here in St. Louis before the temperatures got too hot to enjoy being outside. I love Tower Grove especially because its filled with so many interesting, twisted trees and beautiful ornate gazebos for picnics and of course, pretty pictures!

plus size vintage reproduction Estella green poppy dress from Lady Vintage London

I wore my newest dress, the Estella dress from Lady Vintage from the Lady Voluptuous collection. I can't tell you how much I love repro clothes during the sticky St Louis summers. I do wear authentic vintage most of the time but nothing is better than an easy, comfortable wash n wear dress that you can wear no matter what the temperature is. I love the bold green poppy print with my red hair and wore my handmade snood to match. Snoods are my go-to to keep my hair up in the summer! This one just pins in place on the sides and you can see my video tutorial for this hair style on my facebook page

This dress has a flattering cross-over bodice and short sleeves and a nice sturdy weight to the fabric. Next time, I'm going to wear it with my vintage petticoat. Although I wore this dress on a hot June day, I think the green will be perfect for Christmas time too, don't you think? The Estella dress is also available in grey damask and Japanese blue floral print
