Lindy Bop: Holiday dress for day and night

Hello sweethearts!

Are you preparing for Christmas?? I sure do! Between house decorating and University obligations (last year yey!) I had to write a blog post about my Holiday choice for this year. Lindy Bop sale has ended and I love love love seeing all of your outfits on Instagram #lindybop and #lindyboplove so this is my Lindy Bop purchase (old and a new one).

For day I find 'Wendy' Vintage 1950's Candy Stripe Peter Pan Collar Shirt Dress adorably appropriate for Holiday season because of that Candy cane look, and for night or a New Year party I will shine in my absolute favorite 'Kelsey' Black Fishtail Wiggle Dress.


'Wendy' Vintage 1950's Candy Stripe Peter Pan Collar Shirt Dress was a love at first sight! I love Peter Pan collars! Where to begin and how to write how much I love this dress?!
This dress can go from daily, diner style to elegant in a minute and a few right accessories! It is made out of lighter good quality stretch cotton fabric so when I got her in a size UK14 it was a little tight on my bust and since the buttons are real I had that ugly boob gap but nothing that needle and thread couldn't solve. That's why I find this dress a little bit smaller that usual by size chart.
It has a wide flared skirt that goes great without petticoat too so great for summer with that adorable cap sleeves! Wendy doesn't have a belt so I use my own, red or white (from Ebay).

Wendy features a hidden side zip so like most of Lindy Bop dresses it has to go over my head but honestly I got used to it. I hate that but 80% of dresses has side zip so I gave up hahah
I would really love to have this dress in other colors too ♥♥♥ It doesn't wrinkle very much so It is my daily "to go" dress, it's easy to style and I can feel like a teen again! I will wear it on Christmas day with gingerbread man brooch and elegant red pumps.
If someone had said to me a few months ago that I will wear this dress I would not believe it! But since I started working out and eat healthier changes are happening so this dress is my reward for all the hard work! 'Kelsey' Black Fishtail Wiggle Dress was my goal dress from the moment I saw her!
I was watching her for months and than suddenly it was out of stock! EVERYWHERE! What a nightmare! But great team at Lindy Bop did gave me a quick information that Kelsey will be back soon.
I saw a lot of gals had problems with Lindy Bop service during sale. I am very sorry to hear that, I honestly never had any remarks on their service, my orders always came super fast and exact. This time I didn't get the mail that my order is dispatched but it was still sent and delivered on time.
Now, about the Kelsey. I haven't seen any progress on my body since I have been working out so I ordered UK14 as usual- wrong!! When it came, the dress was too big for me so I had to take it to my seamstress (changing it would cost me much more).
NOTE: size down because it is very stretchy!!!
Besides that, when Kelsey came I was suprised how heavy the dress is! It is made out of good quality, stretch fabric with padded bust. OK, I admit- I was so in love with this dress that I didn't read the product details on Lindy Bop page hahaha
I had no idea that the lace at the bottom was longer on the back, at first I was not thrilled by that but now I like it. One thing I am not very pleased by is the lace on cap sleeves. I find it very delicate and fragile on a heavy dress like that. I am afraid of lifting my arms up so that I wouldn't rip her up :(
Cleavage is for the braver ones hahaha I wouldn't recomend it to a busty girls (but I am one) because even in a size L it is still too small for me (I'm a C cup).
But despite all I'm madly in love with this dress, It gives my new body much confidence and sex appeal.
Next week: my Lindy Bop wish list and a review of my daughters first Lindy Bop dress!
Love, Eleanor
