Vintage Camera Cuteness – Red Dolly Swimwear

California based designer Heather Stepanik set out to create retro inspired swimwear that would make her customers feel comfortable and confident. She forgot to mention cute, which is also guaranteed when wearing a Red Dolly suit!


The blue camera print one piece is the definition of adorable and features a halter tie top, a padded bust and an adorable tie in the centre front.

Fully lined and made of 85% Nylon, 50% spandex, this suit will sit snug and hug you in all the right places. The gathered/ruched front is a cute touch that doubles as a disguise around the tummy area (which is always welcomed). The boy short bottoms ensure good coverage so you can feel comfy and confident on the beach or by the pool.


Red dolly stocks sizes Small through to Extra large. Check out their size chart here.

My measurements are 32”-24”-32” so on the smaller side of a small but they are designed to give and stretch and I felt this suit was an excellent fit!


The lead up to Miss Cooly Rocks On!

Early last week I was ecstatic to find out I had been selected as one of 12 lucky finalists competing in the upcoming Miss Cooly Rocks On pageant.

This pageant makes up just a small part of the Cooly Rocks On festival, which runs from May 30 to June 9 in Coolangatta.

This will be my first year attending the festival and I am super dooper excited to say the least!

This year, the entrants of the pinup comp were asked to submit a video as  part of their entry. Last year the poor judges were faced with a very tough decision picking from photos of the girls involved and hoped that this year, the videos may help them in their decision.

I have always had an interest in video and editing so making a video was lots of fun!

From what they said though, it still wasn’t an easy job. Hence my excitement to find I was one of the lucky ladies.

It’s always disappointing that not all entrants can take part though. I’m hoping I will still get the chance to catch up with my pinup friends, regardless of whether they are actually taking part in the comp!

As the pageant quickly approaches, I’m currently planning the last little bits and pieces for my outfits which is exciting!

Five outfits over two days: It’s lucky I’ve been shopping a lot (too much) of late!
I’d give you a little peek…but I’d better keep it a secret until this time next week 😉

If you haven’t seen it already, here’s my video entry!


Hope to see you there!
Saturday June 7, 6:30PM Start in the Cooly Rocks On Marquee.
