Friday Favourites 148: Lindy Bop

Lindy Bop Collage

So, where do I even start?! Lindy Bop are fast becoming one of my favourite sites to browse for pretty dresses. I only own a couple but they're both lovely - I have a Lana and an Ophelia and have been really impressed by the quality, fit and design on both of them.

Every time I visit their site I end up with another dress or colourway to add to my Lindy Bop wishlist, so here is a little round up of my current favourites.

001: Midnight blue and polka dots? Yes please! I love the slightly sheer effect at the top of this Eve dress. Classy and demure and perfect for just about any function.

002: I often can't get along with shirt dresses. I don't know why, I don't have giant boobs, at all. And yet, it's as if shirt dresses conspire against me to pop open at the least appropriate button. What is that about?! However, this one - the Charlotte dress - is just so perfect that I'd happily make an exception (or wear a strategically placed safety pin). I just love it.

003: I know not everyone shares my love of waistband belts, but I really love them. And the fact that the Audrey dress has one from the matching fabric. I love this cute little cocktail glass print, too. Drinks party, anyone?!

004: I already own a Lana so I'm confident that I love the shape. And this print is just so cheerful - perfect for summer days with a flower in my hair and a pair of bright pink sandals??

005: This huge botanical print isn't one I'd usually plump for it. If I'm fabric shopping, I tend to be drawn to smaller, more repeated prints. And yet , somehow here it really works with the contrasting yellow of the bodice detail.

Have you discovered Lindy Bop? Which is your favourite style?

  1. I love the shape of the Lana, although I really like the big green checks on the shirt dress.

  3. I love them all! The Audrey is my favourite style, although I've only bought them, and one Matilda dress so far. I love most of their designs, really. I love the green gingham Charlotte dress, but I think it would be nicer sleeveless. xx

  4. I've been eyeing up Lindy Bop dresses for about a year now but haven't yet taken the plunge, partly because I come in between two sizes according to their size charts and am a bit wary of ending up with a dress that doesn't fit me!

    1. I've found my normal size to be fine for the two which I own, but that's a bit confusing - I'm sure they would let you exchange if one wasn't right.

  5. I have four now - a Lana, a black Bridie which I wore to a wedding last week with an emerald green petticoat *love*, the Vivi in green and a navy carola halterneck one. I'm always looking on the site though - will eventually have a large collection i'm sure :)
