Friday Frock Love: Summer Highlights

Well, so far we’ve done ok with Summer.

A few rainy days, but generally lovely sunshine, which means summer frocks galore! Hurrah!

One of the things I spend a lot of time doing for All the Dresses, is, er, looking at dresses. So just in case you missed any this Summer I thought I’d do a quick round up of a few of my vintage inspired favourites in the hope of many more sunny days to come!

Pleated Matilija Dress from Anthropologie

I don’t often look on Anthropologie, I don’t know why, it’s just one of those brands that slips my mind when I’m hunting.

The other day I DID stop by though, and found this gorgeous pleated floral dress. The back has cute cut out details and it just looks like it needs to be picnicking in a field with an orangey late summer days filter on it!

Broderie Anglaise Midi Skater Dress from ASOS Premium

ASOS, by contrast, is a site I DO look at a lot! Though I don’t get to buy as often as I’d like.

They always seem to have divine midi dresses, just at the point where I have no money, that are sold out by the time I do. *sigh* This one, however, is still in stock. I have my eye on it…..

Mid Wash Jessica Dress from Oasis

Thanks to Debenhams I actually have this dress (I’ll show you soon!), but they have limited sizes remaining. There are more on the Oasis website.

It’s denim, but light and cool for Summer, and has a great mix of 50s and 80s style going on.

Oooh, tell me more……..

5 Classic Summer Cocktails

classic-gimlet$$069a0000000ec5uiae I love a good cocktail. So much so that I’ve taken it upon myself to organise an entire week in celebration of them this October. Whilst talking to people about Norwich Cocktail Week I’ve discovered that people think of cocktails in very different ways. My wardrobe is inspired by my interest in history and vintage, […] Oooh, tell me more........

Vintage Vamp

cover This is my favourite outfit I’ve never even worn. I’ve had this corset since March, I know, MARCH! And I haven’t had chance to wear it out of the house yet. I’d planned to wear it when I went to Glamazon, but corsets aren’t exactly the sort of thing you just slip into in a […] Oooh, tell me more........

Introducing Lady Luck….

shoes Actually it’s sort of a reintroduction. I first introduced you to Lady Luck’s Boutique all the way back in 2010 when I went in and took some photos of her beautiful shop in Norwich. Over the last 4 years Lady Luck, like several other boutiques I know, has taken her shop online only, with the […] Oooh, tell me more........

Things I Bought and a Spot of Roller Derby

It’s not fun, and despite my unshakeable belief in my own magical healing powers after a week and a half it has mysteriously failed to be completely healed, almost as if the Doctor actually knew better than me when he said 4-6 weeks minimum. Humph. […] Oooh, tell me more........
