Have Yourself a Very Lindy Christmas!

Everyone knows that one of my favourite festive traditions is getting dressed up for Christmas dinner. The girls get brand spanking new party dresses every year, so after a lazy morning in our Christmas Eve pyjamas, we're always super excited to put on our glad rags ready to celebrate in style with friends and family.

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.

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.
