Girl Across The Street: AX Paris Lace Cuff & Collar Dress from Simply Be.

If Rock and Roll's my boyfriend, Northern Soul is definitely my lover. As much as I love my 50s style fashion, show my a good 60s style swing dress and I will swoon every time!

When I saw the AX Paris Lace Cuff & Collar Dress from Simply Be, I knew that I just had to have it. I don't wear swing dresses very often, but the dainty lace cuffs and collar meant it was love at first sight. It seemed to touch at lots of my favourite styles all in one garment - certainly there was a huge 60s influence in the shape, but the colour way and detailing meant that it also leant in a slightly Victorian gothic direction too.

Dress: AX Paris Lace Cuff & Collar Dress from Simply Be.
White Roses in hair: Pearls & Swine.
Heart Necklace under collar: Tatty Devine.
Teardrop Ring: Tatty Devine.
Tights: Simply Be.
Boots: Primark.
Bag: Vintage.

I wore the dress out for a cinema date with my beau on Saturday night and felt like some sort of vintage doll in it. With it's gorgeous monochrome colour combination and swishy swing shape, I felt as if I should have been spinning some vinyl on a battery operated record player! I'm very tempted to wear this when I DJ at the next Whiskey Kittens, and will be bringing lots of Northern Soul records with me for sure if I do!

Until next time,
