Friday Favourites 154..


Once I actually allow myself to start looking, it seems there is no end to the number of pretty, retro-inspired items I would love to add to my wardrobe. Here are the two which are at the forefront of my mind this week: 

001: I've waxed lyrical about the beautiful dresses on the Lindy Bop site, recently. But here's one which has only just caught my eye and which I think is topping my list of favourite designs. I already have an Ophelia dress, so I know what a pretty shape it is, but this fabric choice is a total winner for me. I love prints which aren't so apparent until you get closer to them and that's exactly what these birds seem to do.

002: I've spent far too much of my free time on the Unique Vintage site lately. Whilst it's hard to choose just one favourite from a site which hosts most of my favourite US brands, this skirt is one of the things which effectively jumped out of the screen at me. The print, which is hand-printed by The Oblong Box Shop is puffer fish. I love them. I think they remind me of Sharky and George - a cartoon from the 80s. I really love how well the colours seem to match the yellow it's been paired with, too. I don't suppose I'd have thought of that. 

Anything caught your eye this week?

    1. I really love it. Such a shame that my favourite pieces aren't available in the UK. Although maybe not a bad thing, for the spending ban.
