While I have become quite a leopard print devotee over the past few years, I can still understand how the print might not be the top choice for many folks. Wearing it requires confidence–and a healthy scoop of sass in some instances–but there’s plenty of ways to utilize the print for those who don’t feel totally at home rocking a full leopard print item of clothing. Instead, one could opt for a leopard print statement accessory in a headscarf, handbag. or pair of shoes. Or, simpler still, one could grab this leopard trimmed Cindy dress by Dolly & Dotty, which has the perfect splash of leopard designed for you.
One of my favourite things about moving into the colder half of the year is wearing tartan, plaids and checks. When it’s chilly or dreary outside–or both–there’s something about putting on a check that just feels right. And a green and navy base tartan? Oh that is my favourite.
There’s always something special about a little black dress, but I think this time of year especially they come into their own. The fact that a LBD can be elevated with the fun of using different fabrics and textures makes them even more wonderful, so I’m a big fan of a black dress that utilizes lace, velvet, even sheer elements. This Elizabeth dress by Dolly & Dotty, therefore, is just what I’m looking for to feel glamorous and moody as the evenings darken and the temperature cools.
I love a vintage style dress that has something a little bit different about it, and the glorious double semi-circle of semi-circle cutouts on this Dolly & Dotty number absolutely qualifies. Cutouts generally get a bad rap, with people immediately assuming they display too much flesh, but these cutouts elevate this Elaine dress with style and elegance. Plus, it comes in 4 colours, so what’s not to love?
If there’s one thing the weather lately has been calling for, it’s a maxi dress. I only own a handful because I’m really specific about what cuts I like, but this floral number from Dolly & Dotty? It easily checks off the boxes on my list.
It’s been a long time since I’ve owned a dress and bolero set, and my god, I didn’t realise how much I’d missed it! Hark, let us wait no longer, behold!
I love it when a brand has one or more staple dress styles that they release each season in new colours and prints. It’s great when you find a dress that ticks all your boxes, anyway, but knowing that you’re able to grab that dress in other colourways allows you to expand your wardrobe for different occasions safe in the knowledge that you’re going to feel really comfortable in them all. Dolly & Dotty constantly release their staple dress shapes in tons of new prints and I love how varied their winter selection is in this Amanda dress.
The moment I saw this dress I fell a little bit in love. It’s not unusual for me to admire a floral print, nor embroidery, but it’s not often we’re treated to repro dresses featuring the two. Even when we are, it’s not a guarantee I’ll like the specific embroidery design itself, or perhaps the colour scheme, or the dress cut. Thus, when I find one I like I get a little bit excited. This Dolly & Dotty dress offers up both simplicity and contrast, in colours and a dress shape that are easy for anyone to wear.
That’s right, it’s time! Let’s find out which 3 lucky lovelies have won a Dolly & Dotty soft nylon petticoat of their choice…
I remember one of things that made me feel like a ‘proper pinup’ when I was transitioning to my vintage style was finally beginning to add a petticoat under my skirts and dresses. It was something that felt like it needed a small splash of courage because it was just such an unusual under-thing to have in one’s wardrobe as a 20-something in the 2010s, but once I got my first petticoat there was no looking back.
