It seems insane to me that this is the first blog post/photoshoot featuring She’s Dynamite… because some of my absolute favourite and treasured items in my closest have been lovingly made by Stephanie!
Way back in late 2016, UK based Stephanie from She’s Dynamite contacted me via Instagram asking if I would like to wear a new dress she’d made to the Christmas gathering for the pinup scene in December. The dress in question was the beautiful Petal Bust Baltik Dress in a incredibly vibrant purple. Of course, I was more than willing to oblige and thus starting a wonderful friendship – or how I affectionately refer to Stephanie as my ‘fairy dress-mother’!
Over the years, Stephanie has created several visions for me. Often I’ll be inspired by a vintage dress and the creations that come from them never fail to impress me in both quality, fit and craftsmanship. She’s Dynamite dresses are easily some of my favourite pieces in collection and I’m always wanting more!
This beautiful dress is called the Hannah, named after a customer as many of Stephanie’s dresses are. The silhouette of the dress was one that I had commissioned a while ago, when I dreamed of a simple white eyelet dress with a gather bust, spaghetti straps and fitted waistband. The Hannah is a new version that features a beautiful organza overlay. While it comes in a few other colours and the lilac would have been a obvious choice for me, I couldn’t help but fall in love with this sunny yellow!
The organza overlay features tiny little pink and red flowers, so I bought out that accent with a few red accessories.
The dress is made to the usual high standards I have come to expect from She’s Dynamite and since it was made to my measurements, it fits like a dream. It features adjustable straps which I always appreciate as I find that it’s key to making the dress fit comfortable, especially with spaghetti straps such as this.
The Hannah Dress is £155 and comes in size 8 – 20. I highly recommend looking through @shesdynamite to see all of Stephanie’s beautiful creations. Every piece is hand-made by her and each order is supporting talented independent designer.
Thank you to Elizabeth J Pin Up for capturing this gorgeous dress in all it’s glory!
