Spots n Bows
A well overdue Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to you all!
I am ever so sorry for the delay in posting for the holiday season, but my days have been taken up with family, friends, gift giving and finally, a few days up the coast of New South Wales with Jacob and his family.
It was a rest that was well received and after returning home today I am only now just uploading SD card and flicking through all of the wonderful outfits the holiday season allowed me to wear! This dress was worn over Christmas Eve for lunch with Jacob, his mother and brother (along with a little light shopping for last minute odds-and-ends).
I have been waiting for a chance to wear this dress since I picked it up from a stall holder at Chromefest earlier this year. It had been too hot since it’s purchase, and with long sleeves it has been sitting in my wardrobe and never worn until a cool change came into Sydney for Christmas. It was the perfect dress to wear for a light lunch and some quick downtime with the family before the madness of Christmas day!
The dress is by UK brand Lindy Bop, and it was my first purchase from them. I simply love the cut and style of this dress. The fabric has no stretch but I find it still comfortable to wear. The skirt has enough volume to wear without a crinoline for day time (I am wearing without one here). The colour is more rich that I had expected (when I saw online) but I love the depth that it brings. I’m wearing this style in a UK20 and find it to be a bit snug in the arms.
Since buying this beauty, I have also come to own another Lindy Bop, and tried on several others. I have found that their sizing can be hard to judge, and depending on the cut I can fit into anything from a UK18 to a UK24 from them! I recommend ordering to your size and purchasing through a local seller so that if you find it doesn’t fit, that it won’t cost a fortune to get a new size (and I’d avoid sending back to England if I were you!!!)
