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 and 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.
