Ladies and gents (but probably mostly ladies)... Miss Bamboo!
As you can see, she is the best possible advert for her wares, looking gorgeous in a Trashy Diva 1940s style dress in tropical flowers. She carries a lot of TD dresses, which are all really good vintage reproductions. I have a couple myself. The rayon and cotton fabrics used to make these frocks is so authentic-looking (and feeling) - this black background print on Miss Bamboo herself is perfect for autumn.
Miss B & friends... I covet every one of these Tropical Birds pattern dresses!
She also does an amazing array of Hawaiian, Asian and Mexican-themed 1950s style dresses in beautiful barkcloth and cotton.
If dresses aren't enough for you (or, should I say if you don't want to stop at only clothing, and WHO DOES?), Miss Bamboo also carries a range of 1940s and 1950s inspired shoes, including a selection of drool-worthy Miss L Fire (SOME OF WHICH ARE ON SALE!), and accessories including Miss L Fire lucite handbags, which are a perfect repro of 1950s lucite purses.
Please go visit Miss Bamboo: as well as the site she has a Facebook page too (which I just realised I totally hadn't 'liked' yet... rectified!)
And just for good measure, here's a picture of me looking rather weirdly sad or grumpy at my best friend's wedding preparation... in a Miss Bamboo number!
Still can't decide what to do with my fringe by the way. Keep or grow out?
Hope you're all having grand weeks!
