Perrie on the Daily [Lindy Bop]

As much as I love a wonderfully glam dress, these days I think it excites me more to find a dress that can be worn both truly casually, in all the modern ways that that means to me, right through to a vintage inspired look that can morph with the season and my mood. The Perrie shirtdress by Lindy Bop can do both of those things with ease, and in this navy colourway it’s ready to be rocked year round.

Brooklyn Plaid [Unique Vintage]

Spring may be on its way–hell, technically speaking, it may already be here, but judging by the winds whistling down my chimney and clattering against my windows, the weather itself didn’t get the memo. I feel wholly justified, therefore, in reaching not only for sleeves but for plaid, and this Brooklyn dress by Unique Vintage is the perfect choice for both.

Leaves on Leaves [Voodoo Vixen]

My favourite thing about this season is, without a doubt, the changing and falling of the leaves. Watching the trees that line my route to work gradually shift colours over the course of a few weeks genuinely makes my drive a happier experience, and the chance to step on a crunchy leaf whenever I’m on foot fills me with glee. What better way, then, to celebrate my leafy love of the season than to don a dress that sports exactly that–it’s Voodoo Vixen time.

Sally in Plaid [Unique Vintage]

I like plaid. Big plaids, small plaids. Green, blue, grey, brown, red plaids. Subtle plaids, obnoxious plaids. I don’t think I’ve ever met a plaid I didn’t like, but admittedly the plaids that populate my wardrobe all tend to be rich or bright in colour, proud to be plaid and loud. I don’t yet have the kind of plaid that flies under the radar, that can host a dinner party without looking very seasonally eager. Well, I didn’t have that kind of plaid. Now, thanks to Sally, I’m Dinner Party Plaid ready.
