Green is my absolute favourite colour, but when it comes to clothes its a colour thats a little lacking in my wardrobe. I’ve chosen some of my favourite green clothes online and put together a wish list of some of my favourites, as well as a few white and cream items to mix and match. I absolutely cannot wait for the warm weather so I can wear more dresses skirts and playsuits. I’ve always been a fan of pairing pretty outfits with a pair of converse for comfort and talking vintage influences and doing something a bit more modern with them.

I’m feeling a lot of love for Voodoo Vixen at the moment, their last couple of collections have been so fresh and fun and I like the variety on their site. They aren’t producing the same dresses in lots of different colours, but have a nice selection, with a little something for everyone.

The dress in today’s post was an instant favourite for me. It breaks my rules a little as I never wear black, but I was completely drawn to the gorgeous oversized flower print and although this is from their winter range it is also perfect for both spring and summer. The Mabel dress is a classic fit and flare style with lots of lovely details.

The dress is made from a silky polyester with a slight stretch to it, which makes it sit really nicely on the body. The gathered detail at the waist adds a little extra details and gives the dress a slightly empire feel, while still being quite a classic 50s shape. While the ruffles cap sleeves have more of a 70s look. Whatever era you’re going for the dress is super flattering and comfortable to wear. 

I was really happy with the length of the dress, which sits perfectly on the knee with me, as I’ve mentioned in other dress reviews I like my skirts to be on or below the knee as its more vintage appropriate and on me, looks a lot better.

As I mentioned in my last Voodoo Vixen review, I find most of their dresses come up a little on the large side and where I’ve gone for an XL in the past I’ve sized down and gone for a L. I’m so glad I did as this sits perfectly on me and I think the larger size would be a bit too loose.

I’ve worn the dress with a flower crown and Hotter Donna shoes. The fun florals and lighter coloured shoes are perfect for transitioning the dress from winter to spring. I also think it would look great with red jewellery and accessories to bring out the darker flowers in the dress.

As well as this gorgeous dress and the Gabriela dress that I featured last week, there are also a lot of new arrivals on the Voodoo Vixen website at the moment, which I can’t wait to try.

In the winter I get stuck in a bit of a style rut. It’s just so much harder to get dressed and I often find myself reaching for my comfy jeans and not making so much of an effort. I love colourful clothes and although you can make them work in the colder months, it is harder to find tights and shoes that they work with. Now that the warmer weather is just around the corner, I’m all excited for dressing up and feeling the sun on my skin. Here is my first Spring wishlist of the year and it’s a real celebration of all things colourful.

I’ve always had a bit of a thing for shoes. Before I had kids and had a few extra pennies to spare, I had a little tradition of going into to Office on every single payday and buying my self a new pair of gorgeous shoes. It was my little indulgence and I had a fabulous collection. Now that I’m older and have to do more adulting, new shoes are a bit more of a rarity to me. I also love my poor feet a bit more now and usually lean more towards comfort and you’ll mostly see me in a comfy pair of flats.

I also wear the same shoes a lot now, if you’ve been reading for a while you’ll know that I always wear my few trusty favourites in my outfit posts and thats fine by me. You’ll also know how much I adore all my shoes from Hotter. Their shoes are all about comfort and when a couple of years ago they brought out a range of vintage inspired shoes I couldn’t get enough of them. Every season they bring out new colours in their gorgeous range and I always gaze longingly at them, wanting them all.

I recently got sent two new pairs to review here (I love my job)! One was a pair I already have in pink and the other pair is a new style to me. Both are absolutely beautiful and will obviously be popping up quite a lot of the next few months in my outfit posts.

First up is the Donna shoes in pale blue. I already have these in pink and wear them all the time. Not only are they beautiful and vintage appropriate, they are also unbelievably comfortable.

They have a low elegant heel and have lots of cushioning inside, so they are a dream to wear. They are also perfect if you have slightly wider feet, the standard width is still quite wide so perfect for my chunky feet.

Donna is one of their most popular vintage styles, so they come in loads of different colours in both a suede and leather finish, I just wish I could have them all! See me wearing them in my Lindy Bop review from last week.

The other pair are the Viviene shoes. I’ve liken these ones for ages and thought they’d look great with 30s style dresses, as well as some of my fifties looks. These cute T-bar shoes, have a low heel and pretty scalloped details.

As with all Hotters they are really comfy while still be ing really elegant. I didn’t have any beige coloured shoes before and three will really come into their own in the warmer months with some of my summer dresses.

These come in black, navy and beige and would be great for wearing to work, if you want something quite smart, but will be comfortable enough to wear all day. See me wearing them in my Voodoo Vixen outfit post.

If you’re looking for the perfect pair of shoes to compliment your vintage dresses, or want something comfortable enough to wear all day, while still being glamorous then I would definitely recommend having a look at the Hotter website.

In a wardrobe stuffed full of dresses, I have very few fitted and wiggle dresses. This year I wanted to try a few different styles and shapes and this pretty wiggle dress from Voodoo Vixen was exactly what I was looking for. The Gabriela wiggle dress, is ridiculously glamorous, while being smart enough to wear to work.

Voodoo Vixen Gabriella DressI’m a little bit between sizes in Voodoo Vixen and in the past I have always gone for the XL and found them a bit too roomy. This time I went for the L and it is definitely very fitted on me, but still comfortable and easy to move around in. I’d definitely recommend having a look at the size guide before buying as it really helps.

It can be a little daunting wearing more fitted styles when you have a bit of a mum tum and a few lumpy bits. However I really love my body and decided to a while ago to wear things I like no matter what my shape and size. I have also got a fair amount of structured lingerie on under this dress to help with the shape! Voodoo Vixen Gabriela Dress ReviewThe dress reminds me of the early 60s and is perfect for getting that Mad Men look. Although the style is quite simple, I really like the little details at the neck and bottom of the skirt, which remind me of some of my original vintage dresses of the era.

Voodoo Vixen Gabriella Pencil DressI’ve worn it here with a pair of Viviene shoes from Hotter, a simple vintage bangle and a little pearl necklace. I think the dress looks really nice with simple accessories.

The dress is priced at £37 which I think is great value for such a lovely dress. I would love it if this style came in some darker colours as well, it would look fab in navy or a maroon shade in the winter. Right now though I’m going to enjoy wearing this colour for Spring.

Voodoo Vixen Lilac Wiggle DressThe dress is available on the Voodoo Vixen website.
