I love it when a reproduction or vintage style item, looks like it could be an original. I really feel that way about the Lindy Bop Maybelle jacket and dress sets. They really do pay homage to that early 60s Mad Men era style. When I went out last week with my mum and dad they were genuinely amazed that this wasn’t a real vintage find.

The set was hugely popular when it first launched in a couple of different colours and I was delighted to see lots of new additions this season. I’m not usually a big wiggle or pencil dress wearer, because I prefer to hide my tummy and hips, which definitely show the signs of having had two babies, but I really like the slightly heavier fabric and lining on this dress, which definitely help smoothen things out a bit.

When Lindy Bop contacted me, to see if I wanted to review one of their new items, I chose this straight away. I love anything in a mustard colour and I thought this would be a great addition to my wardrobe. It makes a nice change from my usual dresses and it’s useful to own something a bit smarter and more formal.

The jacquard fabric definitely reminds me of real vintage pieces I’ve come across in the past and I really like that it had a little bit of stretch. The combination of fitted dress and slightly more boxy jacket works really well too and gives it a very authentic feel.

Quality wise I’m pretty impressed. I like the little details like the concealed zip, fabric covered buttons and the bow on the dress. The lining is a great addition, which I think makes the dress fit and hang better. The set is also finished very well, giving it a more expensive feel. At just £55 I think its great value for money.

Fit wise I went for my usual size 14 and it was absolutely fine. With Lindy Bop it is always worth looking at the size guide, as they really do vary a lot.

I’ve worn the outfit with a pair of Hotter Viviene heels. I think it works well to keep the outfit simple and not go overboard with accessories, so something simple and cream is perfect.

The outfit comes in a selection of colours. If a fitted dress isn’t your thing, then there is also a very similar style in the same fabric with a fuller skirt, which is also absolutely gorgeous.

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.

It’s been a while since I bought anything from Lindy Bop, mostly because my wardrobe is pretty full at the moment and I’ve been very good at resisting temptation. However their recent collection of fun novelty prints has definitely caught my attention. Back in December when my brother asked me what I wanted for my birthday, I knew exactly what I wanted and I sent him in the direction of the Alaska Print Gilda dress.

The Gilda dress is a lovely vintage style shirt dress, made from a thick slightly stretchy cotton. It comes in a lovely selection of novelty border prints. Linda Bop has gone a bit crazy for novelty prints recently. But I really like most of them and its a great change from the polka dots and cherries that seemed to be on everything a couple of years ago.

The dress is really lovely quality for the price and I love that as well as having buttons at the front, it also has a concealed side zip, which gives the dress a lovely fit. My only complaint would be that on me the dress is a little short in the body, I could do with the waist starting a little lower, but I don’t think it detracts from its overall loveliness.

The sizing on this dress is pretty spot on, I’m quite a standard size 14 and the dress works really well on me. I love that there is enough room in the bust, that it sits perfectly on me with no gaping. The dress is available up to a size 26.

I’ve worn it here with my vintage lucite necklace and my new Hotter Donna shoes, which are now available in lots of lovely spring colours. I’ll be blogging more about them soon.

Since this is quite a wintery print, the dress isn’t currently available in this option. The Alaska print is still available in a skirt and there are lots of lovely new prints in the Gilda dress. I popped some pictures of the current offering below, I absolutely love the Spring colours on the bicycle print dress.

I’ve got my eye on the San Francisco print at the moment, but I really love all of them. Which design is your favourite?

Recently I’ve been a little obsessed with the 1920s. Historically it’s one of my favourite eras to read about and everything from the roles of women to the drastically changing fashions fascinates me. I’ve been longing for a 20s themed outfit for absolutely ages, so when Lindy Bop launched their beautiful new Silver Screen range I was so excited to try one of the gorgeous dresses.

lindy-bop-silver-screen-reproduction-1920s-dress-reviewI chose the stunning Everly gold embellished dress. I absolutely love the colour and the classic sequin and bead details. It’s just so gorgeous and elegant. To go with it I chose a faux fur stole and some lovely t-bar shoes which are also from Lindy Bop. I finished off the outfit with a turban that I picked up recently at a car boot sale.

lindy-bop-silver-screen-everly-1920s-dress-reviewThe dress arrived beautifully packed in a box, because of the fragile glass beads it was carefully packaged with plenty of tissue and bubble wrap to protect it. As soon as I opened the box I was amazed at the beautiful quality of the dress. It has a sheer layer over a gold lining and the sequins and glass beads are firmly stitched into the fabric. The dress is quite heavy which makes it hang perfectly.

lindy-bop-silver-screen-1920s-beaded-dress-reviewI opted for my usual size 14 and the fit was absolutely perfect, so I’d say these come up true to size. The dress fastens with a concealed side zip, which really helps with the lovely fit.

lindy-bop-everly-flapper-dress-and-faux-fur-stoleThe fur stole went really well with the dress, it fastens with a hook and eye at the front. It adds a nice extra layer when its cold and wearing the two together was perfect for the season. This would make a great outfit for a Christmas party or winter wedding. If I go to any 20s themed nights or events, I’ll definitely be wearing this dress. 

lindy-bop-gene-shoes-reviewI was also really impressed with the shoes. They were beautifully made with quite a cushioned lining, making them quite comfortable to wear all day.

Overall I am really impressed with all the items I tried and I can’t wait to try more dresses from the Silver screen range.

As I mentioned in yesterdays blog post, one of the main things I want to do on the blog this year is share more of my vintage inspired outfits. It’s nice to have an incentive to get dressed up everyday and I love wearing all the lovely clothes in my wardrobe and making sure they all get worn. Today I put on a dress from Lindy Bop which I bought in the sale a few weeks ago. Luckily it’s still available and reduced to just £20.99, so if you’re looking for a winter dress at a bargain price then this might be what you’re looking for.

Lindy Bop Daria Dress Review

Today was a typical English wet and windy day and Rob and I braved the cold for a few minutes to get a few shots of my outfit in the garden. I paired the lovely tartan dress with an old belt and my Clarks Orla Kiely shoes which I blogged about a couple of weeks ago.

I don’t own that many dresses which work well in winter. I’m always drawn to pretty, bright floral summer dresses and never really buy dark colours. I chose this dress because I knew it work work well in the winter worn with tights and a cardi. The dress is made from a lovely soft brushed cotton and reminds me of flannel shirts. I love the simple 50s shapes and the cute scalloped detail around the neckline.

Lindy Bop sizing can really differ from dress to dress and this one comes up a little bigger than most. I bought my usual size 14 and it fits really comfortably. I like that theres loads of room in the bust and I had no pulling or squatting at all. I’m 5’6″ and worn with a full petticoat the dress sits just below the knee on me, making it the perfect length.

The dress also comes in a selection of other prints, many of which are also in the sale at the moment. It is also available in kids sizes.
