Lottie's Pick of what to wear for 1940s Weekenders

by Charlotte Newell August 18, 2017

Twinwood Festival is fast approaching.  Seriously.  It's next week!  And Goodwood will be here before you know it.  And of course later in the year you have Pickering and The Rhythm Riot 1940s weekenders.  Now if you're as unorganisied as me, you still don't have a plan of what you're wearing.  But that's ok, I have THE perfect dress for you!


You really can't go wrong with this 1940s tea dress.  The classic shape will never go out of style and this special edition 30s/40s inspired print 'Deco Dot' is a reproduction of an original vintage print in a glorious field green and buttercream. We regularly restock this dress in different prints and colours.



Customers and staff have gone crazy for this dress because it just looks so damn good on everybody! 


 It hangs beautifully and is very comfortable to wear.  Comfort is key for me!  Speaking of which, I'd pair this dress with the most comfortable vintage style shoes I own...


They are the perfect height for me to wear all day and all night and then pop back on again the next day.  They mould wonderfully to your feet to the point where my first pair actually feel like slippers!  (I'm currently wearing in my second pair)  They're also leather soled so you can easily dance the night away in them!
