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.

Do you struggle to find vintage inspired winter outfits? Do you have any tips for creating great winter looks?

As I never tire of telling you all, I’m a big fan of Lindy Bop. I adore their huge selection of vintage inspired dresses and I love the affordability. I wear their dresses on days when real vintage pieces would be too fragile (pretty much every day out with kids). I was a little bit excited and very worried about my bank balance, when I saw that they’d launched their biggest sale ever. So many of the items I’ve been coveting are now at ridiculously low prices and I have to confess I’ve already made a big order!

Lindy Bop Kelly Paradise Review
The gorgeous tropical print Kelly dress which I reviewed earlier this year is now reduced to £24.49

Lindy Bop Sale Marlene Blue Floral Dress
It’s hard to choose favourite dresses, as I like so many but I think the Ophelia (£16.09) and Marlene (£24.49) in gorgeous shades of blue would look beautiful in any wardrobe.

Lindy Bop Review Vintage Frills
All three of the dresses we reviewed this summer are now in the sale, so lovely little girls don’t need to miss out either. The Joy dress worn by me is now  £24.49 and the kid’s Audrey dresses are now just £10.49 each.

Lindy Bop Sale Marlene Banana Leaf Dress
One of the things that made it into my basket was the Malene dress (£24.49) in the banana leaf print, I’ve wanted it for ages and I can’t wait to try it on. The Tara in teal (£20.99) is the perfect dress for wearing all year round and is a real classic.

Lindy Bop Sale
I’m liking all the gorgeous shades of blue, although there are dresses in laterally every colour available in the sale. The Courtney Floral dress (£20.99) could be put away to bring out in the spring. The lovely Wedgwood blue of the polka dot Hannah dress (£20.99) really caught my eye. I love the classic cut of the dress.

There are literally hundreds of things to choose from in the sale. I picked up a few skirts and a couple of evening dresses to see me through the winter, as well as some lovely new dresses. I’ll try to post up a haul as soon as they arrive.
