Notice I didn’t call this post ‘winter blues’? Er, partly it’s because I think I called a post this before (guilty), but also because this year I haven’t felt as down about the cold as usual. I think it’s because I don’t have time to dwell on it as much and generally speaking, it’s not been too bad here this winter either – thanks, global warming.
So, let’s show you another Hell Bunny dress from this season, because they can do no wrong at the moment! I loved this plaid print the minute I saw it because it combines two of the easiest colours to style (and wear in the winter), black and navy. I was actually looking out for it in a swing style dress I saw in their catalogue, but that one doesn’t seem to have made production as sometimes happens. No matter, it certainly doesn’t hurt to have another great wiggle dress that’s also work appropriate in my wardrobe!
I love the details on this one – the cute double peter pan colour and the little puff sleeves, not to mention the darts at the bust. The dress was a pretty good fit in my usual XS (I find Hell Bunny’s sizing consistent usually), but I added the belt because my short proportions nearly always mean a fitted wiggle gaps a bit in the back. There’s so many ways to style black and navy, but I was itching for an excuse to wear my £10 Lindy Bop shoe bargains, even though they’re peep toes.
Peep toes and tights – that’s probably a divisive one, right? I happen to think it can look cute sometimes. Which is partly because my slim feet mean I always get on better with this style because I can size down, so I want it to look cute 😀 Plus, you know, I’m not done matching this sparkly silver bag with absolutely everything yet.

A note to say that this dress was courtesy of Blue Banana, who sell on a number of styles from repro brands like Hell Bunny, Voodoo Vixen and Banned and seem to have very affordable shipping options available internationally. Definitely one worth watching if you buy repro.
