Dress me up!

I have to tell you, normally, I'm not a huge fan of 'things I saw on websites and liked' blog posts - often they're just lazy attempts to get a plug from a brand (calm down, I said OFTEN. Sometimes they're the bees knees! Although if your instinct was to overreact to that comment, may I suggest you go search your soul for what you know is good and true). As a result, I don't do many of them. However, on the basis that, allegedly, everything's good in moderation, I can live with the odd one here and there. Plus, the high street has finally started bursting and blooming with the beautiful 50s style fashion the autumn/winter 10 catwalks promised but that, at the time, the high street didn't really deliver, in my humble opinion. And that was all the better for my wallet, truth be told. Because I FRIGGIN' LOVE A FULL SKIRTED DRESS. They nip your waist, they skim your hips, they give the illusion of hour glassed fabulousness, they are the pear shaped human's best friend. I ask thee, what's not to love? So, in the hope that this acts as some kind of dressxorcism and prevents me having to swallow my bank card to keep from buying dresses, I can't afford, here are some pretty pictures of some dreamy dresses!

Topshop £29

Topshop £29

Ditto

Topshop (don't worry - I do change retailer soon) £36

Annie Greenabelle @ Topshop £60. How gorgeous is this?!

Same in cream but it's so freaking tasty I had to pop it in.

Dotty P £40 (I think). V simple but nonetheless delicious! One could accessorise the shit out of this in a million different ways. Don't even try telling me otherwise.

Peacocks £22 - what a cutie!
Images are from relevant retailers sites. Don't be pissed - it's free advertising for you and I'm totally funny.

Gorgeous frocks! You would look fabulous in every one of them. Why do I always like the most expensive thing? The Fair trade Toppers frocks are awesome. xxx

Haha I love the if you're angry at this, look inside yourself comment. Too true. This isn't really a shopping list post though, you've showed readers how to achieve a specific look but in different shops and different styles. I love this type of post. Xxx

I second what Vix said!

Gorgeous frocks but do be warned if you're looking at the DP ones - the fabric is really thin and nasty in quite a few of their nice dresses at the moment. It saddens me.

Gem said...

I loooove all of the topshop ones but they wouldn't fit me, boohoo :(
I have the Peacocks one and it looks fab on!

I guess it's making wishlists,and that's ok,to a point.
I do love these Topshop frocks! Gorgeousness! Just what a gal needs for Spring! I love a Fofties style frock,and I agree that they are most flattering!! I'd quite like all of these,so I might just have to be inspired to make some similar frocks...one fo these days......meh....

I 4th what Vix said...

But I'm worried! I do 'shoe porn' posts all the time - but it has never occurred to me (EVER) that I would ever get anything from them! I'm just a nerdy idiot bloggy girl from Canberra showing you the gorgeous things I have found online...

Oh no, have I been breaking some blogger code of conduct without even realising??

I also ADORE a 50s style frock and these are all lovely examples AND affordable - YAY!
