For my birthday two weeks ago a cute dress for a family dinner was in order, and this beautiful 'Amy' dress* from GatsbyLady fit the bill perfectly. It's cute, a little quirky, the right amount of vintage, and I love it.
Bell sleeves are a huge trend for this year and this dress features them in a way that fits it's style wonderfully. I used to love bell sleeves as a teenager but they fell out of fashion and were impossible to get hold of, so glad to see them back!
I felt like a seventies dream when I put this dress on, so my trusty biker boots and mesh leggings that look like tights were the order of the day. These are footless leggings, and then the waist and butt area of them is a traditional legging material. It makes them comfy to wear and with boots they look like tights. I like that they flash a bit of tattoo through them.
It's fairly low cut, but nothing too much. I'm wearing a lace bralette under it and it didn't show at all, so most bra styles will be just fine with it. The fabric is gorgeous, soft, stretchy, thick enough to smooth out any visible bra patterning but not so thick it's overly warm.
I'm pretty tall, 5ft 11 (which apparently baffles everyone who reads my blog!) and the dress sits at mid-thigh on me. It'll be longer on most but I love a bit of thigh flashing so the length is great for me.
It was raining when I took these photos, so a windswept look was always going to happen. I'm considering changing my hair colour, any suggestions? I've been pink for a while now.
