|More 1980's than 50's?|
Today's outfit always makes me feel like I should be in an eighties girl group like Banarama or the Belle Stars.This morning I even played the best of Banarama to compliment it so have got "Cruel Summer" running through my head as I write this (the irony that its currently only stopped flooding rain here isn't lost on me)
I brought this dress from Dorothy Perkins last year when they were having a bit of a "madmen" moment and their store was full of 1950's inspired summer frocks. Whenever vintage styles have a fashion "moment" I always buy whatever I can, happy in the knowledge that even when swing dresses or Capri pants are no longer featuring in the pages of Vogue I will still have my fab finds filling my wardrobe.
|Defying the rubbish weather with my outfit|
I love the orange and yellow print on this dress. its making me feel very summery even if its only May and does feel very very fifties.
Ive coupled it with a cardigan I brought when I was in New York a few years ago. I think it was from Urban outfitters but couldn't swear it.I remember my husband thought I was bonkers buying a cardigan in the sweltering September heat but whose laughing now (him still probably)
I love the colour of it. A strange sea green and the fact it has short sleeves means its ideal for the current weather where one minute its boiling an the next its pouring down. Ive knotted it at the waist so you can see the full circle of the dress.

Remember feeling good and looking great has nothing to do with dress size and everything to do with attitude.
Never wait to be a certain weight to start enjoying clothes and never reject anything thinking it wont suit your shape. Try it on-you may be surprised.
