Dotty For Polka Dots - Darlene Retro Full Circle Swing Dress in Purple from Dolly And Dotty

This is my third dress from vintage repro brand Dolly And Dotty, with the Darlene swing dress becoming a firm favourite in my wardrobe. This time I'm swooshing around in the purple variant which comes with a pretty polka dot splatter. It's the perfect dress for getting up to some rockabilly mischief in!

Available up to a UK 24, the brand carries a range of styles from fitted wiggles to flirty halternecks. The Darlene style is my favourite as it accommodates a larger bust with ease, and I really like the silhouette created by the combination of the wide fitted waistband and off the shoulder neckline.

Shoes: Yours Clothing Court Heels (£19)

The shoulder neckline is finished off with a button detail, and the 50s style sleeves make the dress a good work option with or without a cardigan thrown on top. It's also created from a super soft stretch cotton so is really comfortable to wear whether you're using it as a day dress, or something to dance the night away in. If polka dots aren't your thing, it comes in a whole range of colourways so you'll be able to find the perfect one for you.

Until next time,

    1. Thank you lovely! I actually reviewed one of the colour block ones last year too if it helped - I felt like a fat Snow White in this dress! ;) xox (http://blog.fashionlovesphotos.com/2016/08/darlene-retro-swing-dress-dolly-and-dotty.html)
