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.
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!
