I really like this dress (it's got a lovely ditsy print of apples, cherries and strawberries), but I don't wear it often because it's so modern and a few inches shorter than I normally wear, so it's a little outside my comfort zone. I pulled it out of the wardrobe today and thought, "hmm, the colour actually goes quite well with my new cat-eye sunglasses," so challenged myself to style it up with retro accessories. I should have added my red bangles. I forgot.
Dress, ebay (originally Topshop); Vintage plastic rosebud necklace and headscarf, car boot sales; 1950s handbag, cat eye sunglasses and belt, ebay.
The headscarf is inspired by the cover of one of my 1940s Everywoman magazines.
