Sometimes, I think I should finally grow up and dress like an adult. Just to find another retro dress with a super fun print which I immediately have to buy. By now, however, I’m of the opinion that I shouldn’t waste my time growing up and just wear whatever I want. Furthermore, life is so much more fun in a colourful swing dress! In this blog post I show you the lovely Starlight Swing Dress by Dancing Days by Banned.

Campers and black Details: The Starlight Swing Dress by Dancing Days by Banned

When I was a child, we always went on holiday by a camper. Not a new, modern one, but an old mercedes bus built in 1979. This camper still exists, and in this blog post I already introduced the Mercedes 407 D to you. Recently, I found the Starlight Swing Dress by Dancing Days by Banned and immediately knew: this is my new travel companion.

I mean, how cool is this print? Old Volkswagen vans, which are called “Bulli” here in Germany, caravans and palms make this dress a real eyecatcher. The black details at the collar, sleeves and waist are great while the swing skirt looks best with a petticoat underneath. Colour matching accessories finish this fun summery retro look.

I don’t know about you, but I’m the mood for camping, now. Of course with an olditmer Volkswagen van. 😉

By the way: I just saw that there is a handbag with the same print available!

A colourful Summer Makeup

To match this colourful dress, I wanted a makeup which picks up the colours of my outfit. Yellow eyeshadow is something I’ve never worn before, but when I saw this video by Lisa Eldridge, I wanted to give it a try. Since my skin in pretty pale, I decided to use a lighter shade of yellow. Blush and lipstick a pretty natural, as I don’t want to like a canary bird. 😉

  1. I’m not always a fan of novelty prints, but needless to say you inject complete class into the concept – and I really like this one. We didn’t have a camper van, but it brings back memories nonetheless! There’s another great reflection photo in this set too! Kx

  2. Ohh this dress is beautiful on you! I’ve been drooling every time you shared a photo on Instagram. I also LOVED the flashback to the post featuring your camper – HOW COOL! Sounds like such a fun family memory!
