For Christmas, I got some fab new items of clothing, and I will be doing blog posts about each of them over the next few weeks.
Today I am going to start with a green short sleeved dress from the vintage clothing store “Beyond Retro”.
This is one of my favourite places to shop for brilliant finds in retro fashion. I use their website because neither of their stores (in Brighton and Soho) are near to where I live. You never really know what you might find on there, and that’s what I love about it. Also, the prices are pretty reasonable, too.
So about the dress.
Its a light green, textured short dress, with two pockets at the top (for design rather than practicality!). It is made out of terrycloth fabric, which means it has an unusual ‘bobbly’ texture, which I really like. Approximately from the 1990s, but with clear 1960s inspired design aspects, I was originally drawn to it by the stand-out colour and neckline.
Since wearing it, I’m even more pleased. It fits me really well and is very comfortable. I also think that it is a multi-seasonal item. For winter it can be paired with a long-sleeved top underneath and tights, and in the warmer months can be worn just on its own.
Here is a photo taken from the “Beyond Retro” website – a much better quality photo than I could take, that I hope the company doesn’t mind me using!
