5 Bargain Dresses From Peacocks

Peacocks Vintage Style Dresses

Whenever I see a pretty dress I find it hard to resist. Dresses are definitely my weakness! When I saw a few people of Facebook showing off their lovely new dresses from Peacocks, I had to give them a try for myself. My only problem was not being able to choose which design to go for. At £16 a piece I decided to get a few and try them all to see which I liked best. They are slightly vintage in style, although I would have preferred them to be a little longer, they will be really handy to wear in the summer for everyday. I loved all the bright prints and the lovely colours make me feel really cheerful.

My long suffering husband kindly took some photos for me in the garden, so I could show you what they look like on. With regards to the fit I found they came up a little big around the waist, although they all have ties to tighten them so I didn’t find this to be too much of a problem. I went for my usual size 14 and this was perfect on the bust but a 12 might have been better on the waist.

First up is a lovely leopard print. I’ve always loved animal prints and I paired up with a pair of original 1970s shoes from a charity shop and a gold belt from Beyond Retro. The outfit is perfect for a casual summer evening. Buy the leopard print dress here

Next is a pretty girlie bird and leaf print dress. The colour is a little pale for me, but I’ve seen other people wear it with a pretty pink cardigan and it looks lovely. I wore it with a vintage belt and a pair of shoes I bought in Topshop about 10 years ago. Buy the dress here.

I love the bright royal blue shade of the next dress and the contrasting pink flowers make me feel all summery. The bright colour and lovely light flowing fabric make this one perfect to take on holiday. I wore it with some blue heels from New Look, again these are a few years old. Buy the blue dress here

I mentioned this pink dress in my Pretty in Pink Wishlist, I haven’t got many pink dresses so this will be a welcome addition to my wardrobe. Buy the pretty pink dress here

The last dress is a different style and has a lovely 1940s style print. If it was a little longer it would be perfect for a more authentic vintage look. I’m about 5’6″ so if you’re a little shorter than me it might sit nearer the knee. I really love this dress anyway and can see myself wearing this one the most. My bright orange bra straps are showing in the little cut-out details above the bust so it might be best worn with a nude or strapless bra, but I couldn’t be bothered to change for the photos! Buy the tea dress here

    I feel the need to apologise for pointing you in the direction of these – but you look great in all of them so my guilt is assuaged!

    I love the bird print one so much-soooo cute! I like the pink one a lot too! I also have the problem of dresses (high street ones) being too big in the waist too so I feel your pain! Waist belts are a wonderful invention!

    I think Peacocks is fab for dresses, I have a ’40s style tea dress from years ago that I have worn to death! I really like the pink one on you, and the last one too is most pretty. Good choices! s

      Thank you! I’ve not bought much from them before. Definitely going to keep an eye on what they have from now on. Xxx

    They’re all very, very pretty and delightfully sweet. The first and last are my favourites.

    You look gorgeous in all of them, sweet dear!
