There are so many pretty dresses on offer this season it’s hard to know what to save your pennies for, but I’m going to fight the corner for this particular beauty from Voodoo Vixen! Voodoo Vixen don’t currently have it in stock, but you can get it from my friends at Blue Banana who kindly sent this one to me.
I loved this dress the moment I clapped eyes on it and I’ll tell you why in four words: neckline, pom poms, colours and stripes. I’ve never seen another repro dress quite like this one; all of these things together make it really quite special. One of the things I love about it is how the many colours could lend themselves to the dress being worn so many different ways. I’m having a bit of a love affair with bright yellow recently so I based my look around the vibrant lemon stripes and found a matching field. Cos, you know.
I just think this is such a fun dress and I can’t wait to wear it more in the summer. It was also a surprisingly good match for my cowboy boot brooch from Erstwilder – so much so it’s almost camouflaged here! I’ve mentioned before I have a bit of a thing for cowboy boots, so I was delighted to add this brooch to my collection – especially as it features gold glitter. I’m also pretty pleased with these hair flowers too – another beautiful offering from Alternate Normality. Seriously my go-to for hair flowers in recent days.
Can we all pretend we don’t notice I’m bizarrely standing on a tiny rock in this first photo? Thanks. I assure you it was accidental, not a failed attempt to gain a meagre bit of height on my part…
