Before putting myself on a strict spending ban, I had one last hurrah and ordered a few bits from the Lindy Bop sale. This was a few weeks ago now, and I’ve just got round to trying all my new things on. I went a little out of my comfort zone with this order, as I wanted to try a few pieces that will fill gaps in my wardrobe. Excuse the poor lighting in the photos, I had to take these myself indoors on a rainy day.
My first purchase was the lovely tropical Pink Hibiscus Cynthia dress. I usually choose quite classic English style vintage dresses with more traditional floral designs. I absolutely love this tiki inspired dress as a summer alternative. Out of all the Lindy Bop dresses I’ve tried, this is my favourite one fit-wise. It’s a really flattering design and works really well on my body shape. I went for a size 14 in this one. This dress is currently £18 in the sale.
The other dress I bought was the Zsa Zsa Blue Tropical Twin Set Wiggle Dress. I don’t really wear wiggle dresses very often as I feel like they show all the bits I’d rather hide. But I found this one really flattering and I love that it comes with a matching bolero. I can’t wait to wear this out for evening drinks this summer. This dress is currently £24 in the sale.
Floral capris are definitely out of my comfort zone, but I really wanted to try the Kendra Classic Floral Print Cropped Capri Trousers. They actually look a lot better in real life than in these pictures. Here I’ve teamed them with an original 50s cotton blouse, but I’m on a the lookout for a white gypsy top to wear with them instead. These are currently £12 in the sale.
Lastly I got the Peggy Fifties Style Pink Cocktail Glass Full Circle Skirt, again this isn’t as traditional as some of things I would usually go for, but I thought it was really fun, especially as I love cocktails so much! The skirt is lovely and full, I’m wearing two petticoats with it here.
Annoying all these items have gone back up to full price, Lindy Bop often put nearly everything in the sale and then return it to normal price. I still think everything is really reasonable though. They currently have an up to 50% off sale with lots of other lovely things in it, so its well worth a look.
