With a pretty floral print, this sleeveless, scoop neck skater dress is ideal for the summer months. The skirt part is pleated therefore, has a full shape. I love the material composition; most of my clothing are of this mix. It has an exposed zip, which actually adds a nice touch to the dress. Would go nicely with a plain coloured cropped cardigan.
This skirt is beautiful! The quality and feel of the fabric is lovely, and the cut is perfect. Not to mention the colour is divine. With a high, wide waistband and a ‘split’ at the back, this item really pulls off the 1950’s vintage style look well. I complete the look with a black top and seamed stockings.

This blouse is simply divine. With a silky feel, it’s delicate against the skin. Damson in colour, this beautiful blouse captures the 1950’s style perfectly. Detailed with pearl effect buttons and a pussy bow neckline, it can be worn to work or for an evening out.
I ordered a UK 12 but still found it to be a little too tight across the chest, as there is no stretch in the fabric. The removable ribbon tie was uneven and didn’t ‘sit’ well. However, it could just be the one I received. I decided to keep the top though, as I wear a black spaghetti strap vest top underneath, leaving the top buttons open. Pairs up nicely with either a pencil skirt or a full circle swing style skirt.
Unsure I liked the design, I decided to take a chance and ordered it. The dress is pretty with the blue roses really standing out against the black background. After reading a few reviews on this style, a number stated to go down a size. Taking this advice, rather than ordering a UK size 12 as I normally would to be comfortable across the chest, I ordered a UK size 10. The reviews were right. It fit perfectly. The dress can be worn with a petticoat, although I choose not to.

I love the Ohlson range of skirts, and cannot wait for more to become available. The pattern on this one is so different. It is actually looks better in real life, which is always a good thing. A perfect fit (UK size 10), it also has the added bonus of having pockets. It truly is a lovely skirt.
