Christmas Party Dresses

Last week we organised a Vintage in Presents evening at the shop where we previewed our advent calendars and suggested present ideas.  We also added an extra rail to the shop with over 40 party dress ranging from a size 8 to 18 and prices from £15 to £60.  Although it is a little early, we have decided to keep the rail of party dresses in the shop as a lot of our customer are already planning for the upcoming party season.  So here is a little preview of our party dresses.

black lace dress £50

Next up we have a shimmering 1960′s number in a small size 12.  This short silver dress has long sleeves with sequin detail around the neck and waist line.  Wear with black tights and heeled shoes for cocktails after work.  Priced at £35.

1970's classic dress £30

1970′s classic dress £30

Then we have a size 12 Wallis 1970′s dress that has a 1920′s feel with its drop waist.  This sleeveless dress has a round neck with a low v neck mesh detail with sequins, giving the impression of a very low cut dress.  This dress would be great for a works Xmas party.  Priced at £30

1980's number £27

1980′s number £27

The above is a 1980′s size 10 Tessara dress.  This knee length dress has simple spaghetti straps and sweetheart neckline with pink and black polka dot material round the waist creating a perfect hour glass shape.  Again a great Xmas party choice priced at £27

1960's dress £25

Next up we have a twiggy style dress from Headliners.  This ultimate gold sparkly mini dress (thick black tights needed) has thick straps and sweetheart neck.  Team with a statement necklace and heels for a perfect party look.  This dress has a size 14 label in, however we have just had it modelled by a size 6, we would suggest that a size 10 would look great in this dress.  Priced at £25

Global dress £60

099 (300x225)Finally, we have a stunning 1960′s dress from the stylish dressmaker Global. This knee length sleeveless gold textured dress with red and blue detail has a matching belt to nip you in at the waist.  This is an elegant dress that will see you through many parties to come, sadly the photo does not do the dress justice.  The dress is marked as a size 16, however, we would suggest that it is more suitable for a size 12 or small 14.

Red polka dot dress £50

Red polka dot dress £50

However, if you find it impossible to get a vintage dress to fit, we have some fab retro dresses.  The above cotton red and white polka dot dress is British made and is great for the party season.  We suggest wear with a black sparkly belt (£5), black tights and bolero (£20).  We have dresses in various fabrics and some from Lindy Bop dresses, as well as a large selection of party dresses for different budgets and sizes.  The shop is open Tuesday to Saturday 9.30am-5pm.  If you are looking for something in particular just ask.

Wearing Rockabilly (on a week day)

Our retro dresses have proved to be very popular with our customers, as they are feminine, flattering and easy to wear.  However, it seems a shame that these dresses are just being worn for a special occasion or on holiday.  Several of our customers have said that they would not have the confidence to wear a rockabilly dress during the week, as they are “too dressy”.  Below is one of our floral rockabilly dresses with a four layer underskirt (£40), baby pink scarf (£3) as a belt, tropical shoes (£10),  1980′s handbag (£5) and little hair hat (£3). I’m sure you will agree that with an underskirt the dress is for a special occasion not for shopping is your local supermarket.

276 (225x300)

However, if you take off the underskirt and put on a contrasting floral jacket  (priced at £25), aka Mary Berry from British Bake Off, you have a more dressed down look.  We have teamed the dress and jacket with a narrow belt (£3), bright pink shopper bag (£5) and black shoes (£10).  This outfit is ideal for lunch with friends or afternoon tea, plus the jacket will take you from summer to autumn.

286 (225x300)

Tartan is one of the biggest trends this season but instead of the usual country kilt look, this season is all about clashing prints for a punky edgy look.  We have taken one of our edgy blue heart and dagger print dresses and teamed it with black tights and a black cardigan.  We have then clashed this dress with a bang on trend tartan cape (£80).  This look is perfect for autumn as it is trendy and warm!

IMG_3532 (200x300)

Next up we have a beige Day of the Dead print dress that we have layered.  Layering is a great way to look chic, keep up with trends and keep warm.   We suggest layering a lace blouse (£10) under the dress and finish with a simple belt (models own), neutral shoes and fringe handbag (£5).  If it is cold you could add another cardigan over the dress and put a belt over the cardigan.  To finish the look, try a grey leather jacket (£30).

Finally, one of my favourite looks is this rather summery looking red and green water melon dress.  To bring this dress into autumn we have teamed it with a 1970′s military style jacket (£25) with zip detail and large collar.  To tie the dress and jacket together and to add shape, a bright red belt (£3) is used to nip the waist in.  The look is finished with black tights and a black Kelly handbag (£20).
