I wrote a guest post a few days ago on Va-Voom Vintage
which I thought you might like to read: it's all about different ways to wear a vintage 1950s dress. Take a look
and let me know what you think. How would you wear the dresses I picked?
What are the rules about wearing vintage? If you're new to buying vintage clothing
it's easy to feel that you don't know HOW to wear that amazing new vintage dress you've just bought. Don't panic though, I'm here to help!
Simply put, there are no rules! You can go for a totally retro look and pair your vintage dress with beautiful original vintage shoes and accessories, or you can mix and match with modern clothes to create any look you like. The important thing about buying a vintage dress is to choose something you love, and something that really suits you, then you can show it off in any way you like!
Here is one of my favourite vintage 1960s dresses
in store at the moment - it a bold mod-style polka dot dress by Adele Simpson
and it's a statement piece just by itself. I've styled it in 3 completely different ways to show you what I mean: a 60s-inspired outfit keeping the colour pallet very simple, an edgy look with lots of biker leather and (my favorite) a cute and kookie butterfly themed ensemble. I'd love to know which is your and how YOU would wear this dress?

I particularly love the orange outfit which I think would look amazing on Lady Edith from Downton Abbey (even though its vintage 1940s rather than 1920s!)
