This June my friend and colleague, Kate Beavis from Kate Beavis Vintage (formally Your Vintage Life) and the Vintage Wedding Fair encouraged people to dig out their dressier items (vintage or not) and dress up for June. She had discovered a ton of vintage clothes she’d had stored away and was determined to make good use of them from now on.
I love dressing up so joining in was a no-brainer for me! This was one of my outfit choices…
The dress is a textured, fitted print dress from Dorothy Perkins. For sizing I am wearing a 10 but DP dresses are all available in size 8-22. This dress has a nice stretch to it so is tight on the top and flares out prom skirt style at the waist creating a very feminine shape.
Accessories were a gold structured necklace and simple gold toe quilted pumps in a nude colour. When wearing a pattern I think its important to not add too much extra pattern or colour as it can look busy.
As the weathers still a bit temperamental in the UK I added a white cropped denim jacket bought from M&Co. last summer for going out. Again, for sizing its a size 10 but M&Co. jackets are available in sizes 10-20.
My hair was just tied up into a loose bun and I was make-up free. Hey, I work from home – I dont wear make-up every day!This month tag your looks using the hashtag #dressupjune and search the hashtag via Instagram and Twitter to get inspiration on other peoples outfits. I’ll be adding more ‘outfit of the day’s as the month goes on. Have fun with it and remember a beautiful dress (or blouse, or jacket, or necklace) is for life, not just for Christmas!!!
