Selena in the Sun [Miss Candyfloss]

Many of my favourite dresses are Miss Candyfloss, and pretty much all of my favourite yellow dresses are Miss Candyfloss, because they’re a brand who do not scrimp on yellow, which I love them for. So today’s post is all about frolicking amongst the buttercups and soaking up the sun (while slathered in SPF 50 and a sunhat, of course) in the happiest of yellows, in the Selena-Sun dress.

Matchy Matchy [Miss Candyfloss]

There are many things Miss Candyfloss do beautifully, one of them being that they produce gorgeous matching sets–sometimes it’s a jacket and a skirt, an expected pairing that many vintage inspired clothing companies offer. But sometimes it’s a jacket that matches a jumpsuit, or a dress, or even two dresses. For vintage lovers it allows us to create an outfit that feels authentically vintage and sartorially elegant with ease. Today we’re looking at just such a set, the Kimmie-Gia dress and Samira-Gia jacket.

Spring Lees [Miss Candyfloss]

It’s official–spring is here!  According to my mum it’s not official until the date of the spring equinox, which happens to be today, but in my mind there are three things that mean it’s spring. 1) March arrives. I function on a basis of 3 months per season, so March means spring. 2) The daffodils are out! Yes, some of the more eager varieties arrive at the end of February, but they don’t really get going locally until March. 3) It just feels like spring. This does comprise of a marked increase in sunshine, always a welcome feature, but there’s also something much harder to define in this feeling, a sort of freshness and joy in the air which to me smells like spring. So, since we can all now agree it is spring, both in official terms and my rigorously unscientific Amy terms, it’s time to start looking at some spring-summer goodies! First of the season is this duo from my favourite, Miss Candyfloss.

Nothing Rusty About Manuella [Miss Candyfloss]

Another day, another post in which I explain how I fell in love with a dress from Miss Candyfloss’s lookbook. I know it sounds repetitive, but that’s only because it’s true. Pouring through the new Miss C lookbook each season to see what the latest line will have in store for us is genuinely one of my favourite parts of a new season, not just because Miss Candyfloss is my favourite brand but also because I love it when a brand shows you sneak peeks of their upcoming line. It sets expectations, letting you know whether the aesthetic for the range fits with your own tastes, and if so, helps build excitement as you wait for your favourite previewed pieces to debut. This Manuella-Amber was one of my (yes, many,) instant faves, and I think she’s a doll.

Tuva Makes a Statement [Miss Candyfloss]

There are several things that Miss Candyfloss offer that other vintage inspired brands just don’t. For one, they have a proper appreciation for mustard and teal, which alone wins my affection. Another is their use of the peplum, elegantly incorporated into dresses, jumpsuits and blazers alike with joyful regularity. Yet another is this double-collar design, often employed with contrasting fabrics for maximum impact, as is the case with this Tuva-sun blazer. Just looking at it, I dare you to tell me any other brand is offering what Miss Candyfloss does.

Some Autumn Sun [Miss Candyfloss]

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! No, not Halloween—it’s time for Miss Candyfloss’s autumn/winter line! The release of Miss C’s new range each season is always exciting for me as they are unquestionably my favourite brand, but their autumn/winter ranges are most especially my favourite, because if anyone understands the specific vintage aesthetic of my heart it’s Miss Candyfloss. Their silhouettes are always stunning, their colour palette exquisite, the design choices chic, and the quality top notch. The inspiration behind this season’s line is Pierre Balmain’s New Look era of the 40s and 50s so it is–a surprise to no-one– absolutely gorgeous. The Isolde-Sun is my first piece from this season, a favourite among many favourites that stunned me from their Lookbook, and I’m thrilled to share it with you today.

Korinna in the Meadow [Miss Candyfloss]

With July right around the corner, there’s a fair bit of summer left still to play out, but sadly it’s the end of Miss Candyfloss’s SS21 season, with all of their newest pretties fully released to the world. It might have been their most patterned spring-summer line yet, but as always with Miss Candyfloss they released plenty of beautiful solid coloured pieces which make for wonderful staples in your wardrobe. This Korrina-Minty is one such piece, a lovely pale sage swing dress that offers simplicity and style in one lightweight summer serving.

Sweet Suit, Faux Suit [Miss Candyfloss]

One of the things I find myself most coveting about mid-century fashion when I watch content set in that era is the fabulous skirt suit sets. These days if you want to wear a skirt suit you have to find a pencil skirt and matching blazer on the high street, and, let’s face it, the up-down way modern clothing is cut just doesn’t compete with the curves and silhouettes that mid-century designs celebrated. And the idea that you might want a flared skirt as part of your suit set? Forget it, not happening. Well, unless you shop with Miss Candyfloss, who not only create killer jackets and skirts most seasons to fulfill this most ardently loved of style designs, but have also cleverly created several dresses this season that are design to look like suit sets. Check out this beauty!
