What’s New in The Vintage Frills Shop – 70s Maxis, Floral Prints and The Best Sleeves!

May 25, 2021

I’ve been having such a great time running my shop recently and sourcing and selling the most gorgeous vintage pieces every day is such a fun thing to do. It’s been a bit of a cold and gloomy Spring so far here in England, but I’m holding out hope for better days very soon and my latest offerings in the shop were chosen with warm summer days in mind.

I adore the 60s and 70s and all the gorgeous colourful dresses and fabulous floral prints that never fail to make me smile. I love wearing lots of bright flowy dresses in the summer and I can’t wait to do a few more normal things this year and get a bit more dressed up to do them. Working from home and not doing very much has definitely limited my wardrobe choices somewhat. My latest collection named The Sunshine Collection, is a reflection of the hopeful happy summer I dream of.

Today I wanted to share some of my favourite pieces from the shop at the moment. The collection ranges from a size 6 to size 22 and has a great selection of dress styles and colours. If anything takes your fancy you can check out the full range on my shop, along with over 200 other garments and accessories.

This gorgeous green dress is one of my favourite dresses ever! I adore anything green and find it quite hard to find pieces in just the right shade. I love the bold but simple print, the grosgrain ribbon detail and to top it all off it has absolutely gorgeous sleeves! This one is a UK size 8-10. Shop green vintage dress.

While we’re on the subject of epic sleeves, this simple blue maxi dress has some pretty fabulous ones too. This dress would be fab for summer evenings. This dress is around a UK size 14. Shop blue dress

Another epic blue maxi dress, is this 70s Kati by Laura Philips dress with an absolutely gorgeous floral print. The ruffle detail with yellow trim is completely fabulous and I have to say if this was my size I’d be keeping it! This one is a UK size 10. Shop blue floral maxi dress.

Moving on to another fabulous navy dress, this palm print maxi, makes me want to travel somewhere gorgeous and drink cocktails, while acting super fancy! I love the neck detailing, which adds a little extra to the simple form of the dress. UK size 16. Shop palm print maxi dress

Next up we have another delightful maxi dress. I love the more muted colours of this one, which could see you through Spring, Summer and early Autumn. It’s a simple design with pretty full short sleeves. This one is also a UK size 16. Shop floral maxi dress

Another of my absolutely favourites from the collection is this lovely tiered floral 70s maxi dress. The beautiful print makes me want to get outside and enjoy all the gorgeous flowers. The best bit is that this one is in a larger size and would fit a UK size 22. It’s really hard to find special vintage pieces in larger sizes and this one is so dreamy, I can’t wait for someone to snap it up and enjoy it. Shop floral tiered maxi dress

This floaty 70s dress, ticks all the boxes for summer events. You could wear it to a wedding, a garden party or just dressed down with sandals, a floppy hat and a big straw bag for effortless vintage summer chic. Big glass of Pimms optional! Size 10. Shop floral 70s maxi dress

This dress ticks all my maxi dress boxes, I adore the regency-esque empire waist and puff sleeves and the lovely little ruffle detail at the bottom. The print and colours are absolutely gorgeous too. This one is in amazing condition and the colours are still so beautifully vibrant. Size 14. Dress now sold.

I love the mix of peach and coral in the gorgeous layered 70s maxi dress. This one would be fabulous thrown on with some wedges, a long 70s headscarf and over-sized sunglasses for a beautiful retro summer look. Size 10. Dress now sold.

 If you prefer shorter 60s shifts then this lovely French silk dress gives you everything you need for an effortless chic summer outfit. The print and colours are simply gorgeous. Size 12. Shop floral 60s shift dress

Another very pretty floral 60s dress. This one features a feminine floral print and silky satin material. Such a lovely summery vibe, hopefully this one will bring us some sunshine! Size 8. Shop floral 60s dress. 

I hope you love this collection as much as I do. I have so much more lovely stuff coming to the shop very soon and have spent the last couple of weeks getting everything cleaned photographed and measured. As well as clothing I’ll be bringing you lots of the lovely jewellery and accessories that you’re used to seeing on the shop as well as some lovely vintage curiosities, I have it all coming! For vintage lingerie lovers, there will also be some fantastic pieces coming from the 30s-60s, so watch this space!

This is just a small selection of what I have on offer, the shop currently has over 200 vintage items available. Check out the full range over on Vintage Frills Shop.
