A lovely bright dress, it boasts a beautiful neckline – almost heart shaped. It has an A-Line skirt, as well as a beautiful floral pattern; a repro print from the 50’s. The piping around the bodice gives the dress a nice finish. I opted for a UK10. It’s still a little too big on the shoulders, as well as across the chest area. However, a smaller size would definitely be too small. Perhaps it’s the cut, I’m not sure, but it’s a nice dress anyway.
Another thing I must point out; although this is great for summer, the material a little too heavy, which is not something I expected from my favourite material composition.

This floral mesh dress is a lovely little number. The pattern is embroidered, rather than the usual print style, and is fully lined – excluding the sleeves. It can be worn on an evening out or even to a more grander event, such as a wedding.
This is a beautiful wide flared skirt. Vibrant in colour, the fabric is nice and light. Perfect for summer. It’s lined and has good sized pockets which sits on the front. One downfall; the waistband. There is no stretch, so it very snug. I solve this problem by wearing a corset.

Light cotton, this 1950’s vintage inspired blouse is very comfortable. I purchased a UK 12, which is slightly too big (perhaps due to the cut), but it does have a ‘bow’ to the front which solves the issue for me. It teams beautifully with a pencil skirt, if one wishes to wear it to the office. Alternatively, it also goes well with jeans if one is after a more casual look. Lovely staple for any wardrobe/closet.
This Doris Skirt is American made, and features a chic full swing cut, following the style of the 1950’s. Beautiful bright colours and pattern, the skirt has a nipped in waistband and comes with a wide vinyl belt. Can be worn with or without a petticoat. I will say, the waist comes up rather small, so it may be a good idea to go up a size.

I like the cut/style of this, and learnt from a previous order of an Isabella dress to go down a size to UK10. This fit perfectly. With a sweetheart neckline, the dress also has a flared skirt 1950’s style. It can be worn with or without a petticoat. The dress is not lined, but this only means it is nice and light to wear during warmer months.
