It’s that time of year when all the clothing companies announce their new ranges. We actually had a quite a nice sunny Sunday this weekend and the Dr and I had a quick walk around the Common. The softly thawing ground smelled of Spring and gave me a little bit of hope for warmer weather and skimpier clothes!
The following is a quick round up of my favourite items from my favourite companies!
This Caterina Vintage Swing Dress from Collectif (https://www.collectif.co.uk/collectif-vintage-caterina-vintage-swing-dress-p-vss160812-c-navy.html) would be a fab wardrobe staple, perfect for work, or lovely dressed up with heels and a nice bag in the evening. I’d get lots of wear out of it!
Absolutely adore this range from Lady V, modelled here by gorgeous George (www.fullerfigurefullerbust.com). This bright spring pattern is perfect and I like the nice broad shoulder straps. Looks very comfy – and stylish!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I’m a sucker for a fun print and this ticks that box! Fun, fruity and fabulous, I think you could have lots of fun in this! (https://ladyvlondon.com/Tutti-Fruity-Phoebe-Dress/#.VrjzyMSQGrU)
This Kitty Anemone dress from Vivien of Holloway is lovely in teal. The pattern is soft and works well with its different shades of bluey-green. (http://www.vivienofholloway.com/women-c70/dresses-c10/kitty-anemone-teal-p2081)
i don’t think you have to know who Milly Molly Mandy is to love this dress – but it helps! Lindy Bop have done us proud again, for just £35 this Bletchley Swing Dress (http://www.lindybop.co.uk/dresses-c1/swing-jive-dresses-c3/bletchley-red-stripe-shirt-swing-dress-p2596) can be yours… I’m a big fan of mustard clothes and I don’t own enough of them. I have this dress in a another colour way and can confirm its lovely soft cotton and a great fit… Lindy Bop’s Ionia Tea Dress at £30 (http://www.lindybop.co.uk/dresses-c1/tea-day-dresses-c2/ionia-mustard-polka-dot-tea-dress-p2647).
I don’t get on very well with this style of skirt but I might be tempted to try again having spotted this amazingly cute Tippi candy striped skirt from Lindy Bop (http://www.lindybop.co.uk/bottoms-c21/skirts-c5/tippi-ice-cream-stripe-swing-skirt-p2556). It would be so adorable with a just a plain white top and some pastel flats. Really must lose half a stone and try and make this work!
Some very exciting stuff out there, these are just a few of my favourites, and I’d definitely recommend you have a look at the websites of these companies as there are many more delights waiting for you… Happy Spring!
It is with a longing for Spring I say:
It’s only vintage but I like it!
