Have you noticed a fairly new vintage style clothing company Dolly & Dotty?? If not that you are seriously missing out- BIG TIME! Wanna know why? Let me tell you :)
Dolly& Dotty are based out of Brighton in the UK and they offer a huge selection of budget friendly beautiful vintage inspired pieces in UK sizes 6-24. I first noticed them a few months ago when I saw a few gorgeous ladies on Instagram wearing their dresses and they immediately caught my eye with amazing styles and colors.
It was a real challenge, choose a dress to review because their are all so beautiful and I have to admit my wish list is very long haha but the decision was made: Vanessa Classic 50’s Inspired Check Dress in Navy because I don’t have anything like this in my closet.
Parcel came very very fast, 3 days from UK to Croatia so A+ for shipping! When I opened it up my first tought was: “OMG this is soooooo soft!!!”
Fabric of this dress is like nothing I have ever felt! Vanessa is made out of 95% cotton and 5% elastane and it is like you are touching a cloud! I don’t find it stretchy but it is very comfortable and lightweight piece for summer.
Another thing that astonished me is contrasting lining, I love how bright red lifts up the navy check and gives this dress dose of playfulness! Very appropriate for my summer bike ride ;) Dress has a swing skirt, but it's not a full circle. It can still fit a slim petticoat and it gives her a nice shape.
Also I really like the matching belt, that is one of my favorite features on this dress because it is not embedded so I can lift or pull him down as I like (there is nothig worse for me when I can’t move my belt because dress has strips for belt that are usually too high and I look unproportional!)
But the belt itself has a strip in the right place so you don't have to tuck in the rest of the belt, we all know how that can be ugly and uncomfortable!
It closes with a size zipper and it is true to size, I am wearing a size UK12. Now when you read and see everything you need to know what are you waiting for?
