I'm a massive fan of vintage style dresses so was really thrilled when Lindy Bop approached me to collaborate with them. They sell a huge (and I mean huge!) selection of vintage repro clothes, all of which are priced amazingly. The most expensive day dress is just £30 - and anyone that buys a lot of vintage/repro will know that this is more than reasonable!
They offered to send me something pretty to wear at Christmas and I am not exaggerating when I say I spent about three hours on their website; there is just so much choice and I couldn't decide!
In the end I went for an Audrey swing dress, in blue floral stripe, with a royal blue petticoat to wear underneath. I chose this dress because it can be dressed up or down, depending on your footwear and whether or not you wear the petticoat with it. It's also a dress that can be worn across seasons - I've been wearing mine with a simple blue cardigan and sheer tights during this cold spell, but it would look equally good as a summer frock, worn with a pair of saltwaters and bare legs!
When my dress arrived, the first thing that struck me was the quality. It really is exceptional - I wasn't expecting such perfection for the price. The dress is fully lined, comes with a removable faux leather belt and is a really authentic fifties design.
Bateau necklines are my absolute favourite when it comes to vintage dresses, and I love the wide flared swing skirt of this one. The fitted bodice is really flattering and, when teamed with the petticoat - which has a 7" deep elasticated waistband - it really does give a smooth and slender silhouette.
Royal blue petticoat, £14
Both c/o Lindy Bop
Red 'Betty' clogs, £51 c/o Moheda Toffeln
The entire Lindy Bop collection really is amazing, so if you're looking for something special make sure you head over to their website and take a look. They stock sizes 6-26 and standard delivery is only £3 (or free if you spend over £85) and super quick! And there is still time to get a new frock for Christmas if you go for the next day delivery option.
DISCLOSURE: I was sent this dress and petticoat by Lindy Bop in order to write this review. All my words are honest and my own.
