Tropicana Winter - Violets in May Hawaiian Dresses

Oh Violets in May, you have my heart. 

Violets in May is the creation of UK based pinup model Lola Diamond. It's amazing having a model be the brains and creator behind such a beautiful brand. Not only does she know how to fit everything just right to show off your curves, but she picks colours and fabrics that really pop on camera. 

We are in the dead of winter here in Melbourne. During business hours, I've been greeting clients with "My hands are freezing and I'm not made for this weather". However, most of the world is enjoying summer and sunshine, and I wanted to play on that by sharing this gorgeous creation. 

There are several different options for tropical wrap dresses. This dress is available in Flamingo Print here, however fabric is limited. If you can't get this fabric, there are several other options available in tropical prints, like this one here

All items can be custom-made, with limited runs of pre-made items. Despite the bespoke approach, Lola's prices are comparable to the likes of high-quality retro reproduction brands, giving you bang for your buck. 

I gave her my measurements and am in love with the fit. Halter styles like this dress can lead to neck pain if not properly fitted through the waist. They have to be tight enough that they can hold their own without squeezing you where you don't want it. The fit of this dress has it all, and I can't wait to take it out for beach days in the coming summer months. 

Thank you so much to the fabulous Brooke Orchard Photography for taking these photos earlier this year! I seem to bring stormy weather with me every shoot, and we fought the elements to get these photos. Brooke is an absolute professional and captures everything at just the right moment to get the images you dream of. 

Brooke recently added a boudoir package to her range of offerings. I was honoured to be her very first boudoir model, and she has done many since then - every one is more stunning than the last. Australian ladies, if you want an instant confidence boost and images you will never forget, get in touch with Brooke! You won't be disappointed. Check out her boudoir offerings here
