Here is a vintage inspired dress that is a floaty, ethereal dream. Made of a beautiful silk georgette it certainly got my heart pounding the moment I saw it.

Floaty Vintage Inspired Dresses

It's the sleeves. Aren't they fantastic! Gracefully floating down the upper arm and fluttering slightly at the elbow. This is a true wrap dress and the bands criss-cross the empire line defining your smallest point in contrast to the expanse of silk in the sleeve. This cleverly plays with your proportions so this doesn't end up in a big floral mess. You want to wear the dress, not it wear you!

The skirt descends, easily cascading across the satin bluebell slip into a flattering A line shape. I love that the slip is included in the cost and that a beautiful tonal colour has been chosen. Such a pretty colour deserves a glimpse within the V neck, show it off a little. The slips straps are adjustable so you can control how much of your décolletage is on show.

The dress is available in two colours, one floral with an indigo base, and one vintage dusky pink with coffee trim. Choose the one which best enhances your complexion.

The first couple of these dresses that sold have either gone to ladies due to attend a wedding or girls who simply fell in love with the dress upon first sight. Either way, you are on to a good thing!
It's so hard to find something special and different when shopping on the high street these days (so many chains!).  But these dresses are exactly that; special and different. You would be wise to snap one up quickly if you are already smitten.
