Riverwalk || Doll Me Up at Wendella Dock

IMG_8065

For a bright spring day on the Riverwalk, classic nautical colors seemed the perfect choice.  We stopped by the Wendella docking area, which plays an intricate part in the culture of Chicago's history.  Founded in 1935, these charters glide passengers on a river tour of the architecture of the city, and entering their 80th season!  In 1962, Wendella also started the iconic Water Taxi commuter boat leading to the Railroad Station.

Inspired by the posh elegance of Grace Kelly and the curves of Jayne Mansfield, I paired the striped Vixen Vondetta Top with the simple white Queen Bee Skirt, both from Doll Me Up Darling.  While Doll Me Up carries a wide variety of pinup brands, the Vixen Vondetta Collection is their own line - and truly my new best friend... I want one in every color!  I usually avoid ruching on garments, but this flattering design had me swooning the moment I tried it on.  Made of a soft and almost cooling fabric, it is perfect for the warm seasons ahead.  With strap versatility and perfect curve-enhancing stretch, this is just the piece that I want to pull out and wear with various outfits all summer long.  Doll Me Up truly lives up to their goal, providing high quality, unique, elegant, and affordable vintage-inspired clothing.

Bon Voyage!
