Sometimes, you see a dress and swoon!
I did just that with the beautiful Lindy Bop Midnight Blue Vanessa dress from Nyla Rose.
Luckily for me, I’m spoilt! And my wonderful husband bought it me for Valentines day!
Now, this dress is not the most flattering of dresses for full busted ladies as the neckline does emphasise the fact that I am more than a little top-heavy! Nevertheless, I am completely head over heels in love with it!
The skirt is fully lined and which really helps to create that smooth silhouette of the 50’s pin-up girl and the waist really does cinch in which is so refreshing after finding pencil dress after pencil dress that gapes at my waist.
The material has a nice stretch to it, which really helps with the wiggle dress fit, and the length is perfect on me, skimming my knees. It will fall longer on those who fall shy of my 5ft10 but I think that will simply give you more a fifties fit.
At only £35, this really is a little bit of a bargain. The dress feels well made and is unique enough that you’re not going to turn up at a party to find another girl emulating your style!
The size range is great (8-26) and the dress comes in a multitude of patterns – I love the poppy print version!
