There is seriously no better way to spend a beautiful sunny afternoon, than in a place that never ceases to amaze me with it's beauty and detail..... than to spend it there with a model who was just born to rock the kind of 1940's glamour mere mortals dream of.
When I saw the dress that Little Miss Broadway brought down specially for our shoot I almost swooned.
You see, earlier in the year when I went to the Very Vintage Day Out in Auckland I had spotted it. And I wanted it! But the woman selling it was very VERY particular about even letting people try it on as it's a one of a kind genuine vintage 1940's dance dress.
In order to try it on, she was measuring people up and deciding if it was a yes or no and while my waist would have fit it, she decided my bust wouldn't. So I was denied.
Even this petite wonder was almost denied, but she pushed to try it and the woman allowed her - and not only does it fit her perfectly, but it looks like it was made to be hers.
She put it on and she just transformed into this creature of grace and beauty and it was fabulous!
The setting couldn't have been any more perfect and fitting for her, and the staff as usual were super lovely. Allowing us to have a corner to ourselves. Bringing us beautiful china and wine in vintage glasses. And even volunteering us a very handsome french man to partner her up with!
So I would like to thank Hippopotamus and all of the staff there for helping us out with such a lovely place and making it a very memorable day. Check out their website as they do a High Tea which is just to die for!
It's a photo overload in this post, but honestly there were just so many incredible images, I really couldn't narrow them down any further, so enjoy the eye candy!
