As I mentioned on my previous post, I had basically pushed my friend Kat into giving me the secret location of the most beautifully retro dress I’ve ever seen her wear. She posted a pretty great blog on it here but I’ll throw my 2 pence in there for what it’s worth. No Shrinking Violet
Boots: New Look (old)
This beautiful retro dress is an absolute saviour for those like me and Kat (I’m sure she won’t mind me saying) who like to eat! It is so great for different body shapes it’s wonderful. As someone who spends a lot of her time in black I’m also pretty surprised how much I liked it, but mustard, grey, and burgundy are some of my favourite colours so there you go.
The sleeves are particularly cute with a little slit at the top (I’m sorry Joe is a poor photographer and couldn’t focus the camera) and as you can see the dress is figure hugging but gives a little when necessary.
I love the length of this, not just because I’m a tall gal and it’s past the knee, but it has side splits which would normally threaten to devastate the world by perturbing my modesty… but NOT this dress. No, it is just a good dress. No Shrinking Violet
Did I mention that is is pretty much the most perfect fabric for Autumn?
What Autumn buys have you all been finding and where can I get them?
