Christie Venice Swing Dress.




Dress: c/o Lindy Bop. Necklace: Charity Shop. Bag: Vintage (Charity Shop) Shoes: Evans. Hair Piece: Charity Shop.

I'm back with another lovely piece from Lindy Bop this time it's the Christie Venice off the shoulder dress and I'm utterly in love with it! Well I do love a good print and the darling venice scene is just to die for! I decided to style this in mind for a Wedding as this is what I was thinking of wearing it for (though I ended up wearing the Renee Twin Set which you can see in an a previous blog post!) I think this dress could be dressed down with a cute ballerina cardigan and some converse as well as being worn like I have here! In fact I'll probably wear it more dressed down as my day to day wardrobe is very casual! 

Here I'm wearing a UK22 as I've mentioned before with Lindy Bop I tend to have to size up with their items in the past however with this dress as UK20 would have been a perfect fit, though here I have a little wiggle room which is nice if I'm going out to eat! I also find that this dress is just a little long for me but I could easily amend this and its only because I'm loving my circle skirts and swing dresses with higher hem lines! I'm finding Lindy Bops sizing a little confusing at the moment as some pieces I could size down with and others I've had to size up twice. Luckily I find swapping items with them really easyOther than the fabulous print I also adore the detailing on the Bardot shoulder, initially I hadn't seen the bows but I absolutely love them. If you haven't realised from seeing my blog pictures over the last year or so you'll know I'm obsessed with anything off or cold shouldered and this is no exception! I styled it with Vintage accessories that I've been lucky enough to pick up in Charity shops over the years, some simple dolly shoes and classic retro inspired make up.
