It is the 31st of December and my iPad keeps bonging. It keeps bonging because my little sister knows what day it is and keeps sending me suggestions. She keeps sending me suggestions because it's dresses, dresses, dresses day!
So no wittering, here's six pretty (in my opinion) dresses...
'Harlow' Teal Black Lace Swing Dress from Lindy Bop, in all its beautiful lacy glory. I only discovered Lindy Bop this year and I've become completely obsessed with it's gorgeous retro inspired dress shapes and their plethora of vintage style printed fabrics they come in. While I've not worn a dress properly in years, I'd kill to wear vintage style dresses and swish about like I was Jane Russell or Grace Kelly. You can even buy petticoats to full poof out your skirt for that full retro glam look. I also love Lindy Bop all the more because their sizes run from six to twenty six, so no discrimination there for anyone!
That said, I'd get rid of the beaded bit on the belt, but that's just me. And I'm sure I say it every year, but damn you Modcloth for not having suppliers in the UK so I can spend all my money on everything you sell... also than you for not because I really don't have that kind of cash!
Frock and Frill Embellished Overlay Pencil Dress from ASOS, sequins and a grown up dress for our last dress. I say grown up, but that's mostly because it's a pencil dress and in my head grown ups wear pencil dresses and not so grown ups wear ones with big skirts in which to twirl in. Twirling is a good thing, at least in my book.
Now, I have to say that ASOS stepped up this year and trumped pretty much every other shop I looked at. Am I alone in being slightly impatient for the nineties fashion revival we've been doing through this year, to hurry up an end? I lived through the nineties, I survived the years of boxy tops and shapeless everything (and the shoes, we'll talk about that hideous revival tomorrow) and I have had no desire to relive it bar the grunge era of micro floral dresses, denim and Dr. Martens. Please, fashion world, could we please, please, please have longer tops and clothes that aren't entirely square?
And could we also please ditch pastels and get back to bright and jewel tones, just for a year? Pretty please with glitter on top?
Anyway, I hope you liked the dresses, does anyone have any favourites? If not they're all mine and I'm not sharing.
