Dress of the Day!

Hello and welcome to ‘What a Pretty Frock!’ My aim, once I have a little time to take some photos, is to show you the best vintage dresses around – for inspiration. Alongside this I will feature my original handmade garments, from original vintage patterns. However, I’d also love to showcase fabulous vintage-style dresses that everyone can own. All opinions are my own and I do not receive any sponsorship, currently. I will let you know if this ever changes!

I’m so happy that you’re here and so on this lovely, sunny spring day – here is a dress to tickle your fancy. M&S have produced this wonderful 1950s inspired Gold Floral Print Slip Dress.

The fitted bodice flares out gently from under the bust, making this a flattering style for everyone! The A-Line skirt is structured to create a fantastic hourglass silhouette. I imagine this would be a fantastic dress for a summer wedding or a prom. It falls just below the knee and looks fantastic with a kitten or high heel. You could choose to complement in gold or contrast with black. I think this is a really demure, classic look with a fabulous floral print! It’s available right now and M&S for £89.00 which is admittedly quite pricey but then this is a really special dress.
