I have a nostalgic love affair with retro inspired dresses. I’m so fascinated with fashion from the past, particularly the elegance, subtlety, and femininity of the 1950s. Over the years, I’ve collected a handful of vintage style pieces — all encompassing a graceful midi length with a flattering swing silhouette — that I will forever adore and, thus, have further my admiration and obsession.
Today, I’m sharing this darling dress from UK fashion brand, Dolly & Dotty, with you. I’m quite smitten with this company as this is my fourth dress from them. I love the quality of their products, which are very well-made and beautifully constructed; their pieces always make me feel so pretty — perhaps, that’s probably the main reason why I’m hooked on them. 🙂
This dress comes in a variety of colors, but I decided to go with this dark hunter green shade because I don’t own anything like it (it’s darker in person compared to the website photos). I adore the stunning crochet cut-out design along the neckline and short sleeves, as well as the fitted waist and flared circle skirt, which looks so flattering and feminine. Now that I own this dress, I really want to get it in red too — it’s lovely!
All of my dresses from this brand are in a size UK 12 and they fit perfectly, true-to-size.
