If it were not for the stars aligning perfectly in my favour I am not sure I would have looked further into this special edition PUG Heidi dress. As I am a collector of Heidi’s and my preferred retail shop being Rowena’s, you guessed it. This would be my lucky dress ❤
Word was out that PUG released an Exclusive Heidi dress in a decadent Red Floral print. The catch was that there are only 2 retail shops in the world that have been stocked and are selling this heavenly creation, Rowena’s and Top Vintage. I picked mine up through Rowena’s and their website http://www.retroglam.com
If you are connected to any other Pin Up Blogs, Pages or Groups you may have already started to notice a wave of reviews of the “Limited” edition Heidi, or the “Exclusive” Red Floral Heidi from PUG.
I am not one for jumping on a band wagon yet I had to snatch this beauty up while she was presented to me. How could I not have her be part of my collection.
My desire and perspective of this Heidi is much like that of a connoisseur. Her soon rarity and the presence she commanded through picture I knew she was the right colour direction I wanted to own.
I find this print to be unlike the rest of the Heidi prints available and I love that no matter the print the Heidi always look slightly different.
So here I am yet another PUG enthusiast eagerly waiting on the Post to see if their new dress has arrived. I really felt with this dress she would demand a stepping out party.
Weather is soon changing for me up North and I want to have ample opportunity to wear her.
This is by far the most glamorous of the Heidi prints in my collection and so I am getting excited to see how she will look on me.
As I do not get post daily or delivered to my home I had to drive to my post box 2 times to see if she was in. Disappointed on my first attempt, I left empty handed. Not the second.
It was hard to concentrate on driving home with the white postal package sat next to me as I did not have a way to open it until I was home.
Upon opening the parcel I noted the fabric of this Heidi was a little heavier weight which appealed to me knowing it would hang just right. I was really excited about the bold floral, a loud splash of red and green this dress hands down will have you noticed.
I proceeded to collect shoes, belts and crinolines to figure out how I should wear her. I started with white shoes and crinoline, then to red shoes and crinoline and stopped. I am yet to try black shoes and crinoline yet know it will work so I am not too concerned.
I wanted to make sure the reds matched and the whites. The dress is a very white “white” so this is something to watch for as I am not sure the white worked as well as the reds.
As I am going to town tomorrow and finally have the opportunity to wear her out I am pondering my hair flower colour and hand bag to match. I do think this is the most feminine of dress colours and I wish I had a function to attend as this dress would be fitting in a variety of celebrations.
If you have the chance to pick one up I highly recommend her as I am sure she would look fabulous on a range of ladies and I know I was lucky to add her to my collection.
This morning I tried her on again as she was purchased and then I went to town in her as I liked.
