It’s that time of year when the sun is playing coy with us here in the UK; bright one day, snowing the next (no, literally, today it’s snowing up north, but yesterday we had a lovely sunny day here down south.) So when there’s a chance to throw on a summery dress, boy does it feel glorious. And it doesn’t get much more summery than this tropical little Hell Bunny number.
It’s so nice to be getting consistent sunshine these days, which means I can finally share with you this tropical treat of a dress from Hell Bunny, the Kalani 50s dress. It’s been hanging on the back of my closet door for weeks now, taunting me as rain fell repeatedly, every weekend, daring me to even wistfully consider whether it was possible to shoot it yet. But no more! The sun is here, and so is the chance to shift into spring wardrobe mode! What better way than with a floral print as lush as this one?
Hell Bunny have done great work this season in producing not only an array of dresses in fun prints, but also in including design details in the construction of those dresses that produce a great fit and a level of customisation for the wearer. Given that Hell Bunny is a budget-friendly vintage inspired brand that really impresses me, and I’m pleased to be sharing another such dress with you today.
To me, the Tahiti 50s dress is a pinch of tropical paradise done by way of England–that is to say, it features a gorgeous tropical print that won’t scare off ladies who are wary of wearing super bright colours. It’s all about rich plums and muted greens framed against a soft fresh minty-blue, with a dose of clean white, and it’s kind of perfect.
