1950’s style dresses haul & try-on

I recently had that crisis moment when I looked into my room full of clothes and realised I had absolutely nothing to wear! I was looking for an outfit to wear to Blogfest and I had specific criteria: something that I’m going to be comfortable in all day; something that I definitely don’t look pregnant in (this was a Mumsnet event) ie. something flattering and I felt good in, and something that I felt suited my personality and style. 1950’s style dresses are something that answers these requirements, so I went on the internet and in a panic, ordered five! Three are going back, but I’m keeping two. Here’s the video I made, showing them and trying them on, so if you like this sort of style too, then hopefully it will be helpful. All the links are underneath….

Shop the look:

Lindy Bop Daria Midnight Poppy dress here.

Lindy Bop don’t seem to be selling the same woodland fox dress any more, but the have the same print in a long-sleeved version here.

Please let me know if there are any 1950’s style brands you recommend. Thank you!

Styling black with lilac – Weekly Wardrobe
March 20, 2017
If you have a lot of black in your wardrobe, but would like to inject a bit of pastel spring colour, then I recommend adding a little lilac. In my opinion there aren’t many colours that go with plain black: (not counting white and grey,) purple and red are the best ones, but paler colours are more tricky. A strong black and a light tone together just doesn’t often look right, but for some reason, I think lilac is the one that somehow works. Of course, if there’s any coloured pattern on the black you’re wearing, then you can just pick out any of those to wear with your outfit. Anyway, whilst on a mini holiday in the Lake District last weekend, I wore a lilac tie cardigan with a plain black top and skirt….
My strange relationship with fashion
September 23, 2016
You may have noticed that my blog has been gradually overhauled and updated in the last few months (and still is – new logo coming soon!), and yet I haven’t gone with the same fashionable layout as most top bloggers at the moment – you know the kind – the picture that doesn’t scroll with your mouse, and the blocks of pictures. There is no doubt that this style looks beautiful, but I personally find it confusing. I like a blog that has clear categories that are easy to find, as well as a way of reading everything in order with the most recent post first. I hope I’m doing the right thing (I have already been complimented on the clear layout), but I’ve decided to keep my blog unfashionable, but in a way that suits me. My fashion sense with clothes works in a similar way……

Visiting the Jack o’lantern Blaze & wearing my new purple coat
October 30, 2018
We couldn’t be in America without visiting a Halloween event, could we? Friends recommended the Jack o’lantern Blaze at Croton-on-Hudson in New York, and we were lucky enough to get tickets. This event sells out weeks beforehand, but I think I happened to be online when a new batch was released for an 8:30pm time slot on Tuesday. So I bought the tickets in a bit of a panic, but didn’t really know what it was I was buying them for!…
