Another day another pretty dress! My wardrobe has been filling up very quickly lately with lovely budget friendly vintage style dresses. A few weeks ago I talked about the amazing vintage style dresses that Sainsburys are offering at the moment and now George at Asda have a few really pretty ones, that 50s loving girls will appreciate. I have a bit of a thing for seaside prints and when I spotted this lovely dress in Asda I couldn’t resist. The dress really reminds me of my Boden Nancy dress which I bought last year and it’s just perfect for warm summer days.
Rob and I popped into central London for the afternoon yesterday, for a little afternoon date. As the sun was shining I wore my lovely new dress. The dress has a beautiful full skirt, which has a net petticoat and a layer of lining which makes it flare beautifully. It’s made with a thick cotton blend which makes it slightly stiff which I really like.
The colours and print are just so pretty and remind me of lovely vintage novelty prints. The fit is pretty good for a budget dress, size wise I ordered my usual 14 and it fit really well. The dress fastens with a zip at the back, I usually prefer side zips as they fit better, however I didn’t find it a problem with this one.
I wore the dress with a simple pair of pumps from Primark and a necklace I recently picked up in Coast.
I’m so happy with the quality of the dress for the amazing price. I’ll definitely be keeping a closer eye of Asda and other supermarkets to see what they have in store.
Seaside Dress – £20 – George by Asda

Gorgeous choice, I think they had a shirt and some capris in the same print but I wasn’t quick enough in my local store. Haven’t checked online though. Looks so pretty with that necklace! And lovely location, the ‘retro’ sign was made for you surely! x

Wow, what a stunning dress – and equally amazing price point. I share your fondness for sea/beach/nautical related prints and would wear this quicker than you can say “surf’s up!” 🙂
