Dress - Stop Staring, Earrings - gift from my grandparents, thanks guys!, Sunglasses - Vintage, Shoes - Bata
The retro and rockabilly style website Stop Staring recently offered to send me a dress, and after taking one look at their site of course I said yes! They do some gorgeous 40s and 50s style clothes, and I was very happy with the pretty polkadot number that arrived on my doorstep last week.
It's made from a stretchy fabric that is certainly figure hugging, but because it's quite thick it does a great job of being flattering, and not showing off too many wobbly bits! I originally added a cardi to the outfit but to be honest the dress stands better on its own, not to mention I love that right now it's so sunny I don't even need one!
ps Zooey Deschanel wears a Stop Staring dress in the She & Him video for Don't Look Back (the black one with the red belt!) so if I wasn't convinced about their beautiful dresses before that's a pretty good endorsement! The only problem is given that they are based in America the customs charges to actually get your hands on your dress when it arrives are a bit extortionate.
