Last night, I got dressed up and went out for the first time in ages. Mostly, I had fun, mostly my anxieties meant I worried how I was really fat and probably didn’t really fit in. Yay for my head right?
Anyway, it was nice to see my work colleagues and I’m looking forward to seeing them all again next week for our Christmas meal.
My outfit of choice last night was Alice in Wonderland themed. I spotted the dress I wore a little while ago on Lindy Bop (I have a couple of Lindy Bop dresses, read about the other one here that I wore to see the fabulous Rod Stewart).
My lovely dress last night was a pale blue swing dress in classic Alice in Wonderland print, it came with a postbox red belt.
The dress has two side seam pockets, who doesn’t love a dress with pockets?! The zip is concealed down the back of the dress and the bodice is fitted, with a lovely flared skirt. It’s super comfortable to wear and the fabric is very comfortable too. The fitted bodice wasn’t uncomfortable, which they sometimes can be and was easy to sit down, eat and breathe in.
This dress cost £30 – most of Lindy Bops dresses are of a similiar price and I think for £30 you are getting a very beautiful and well made dress.
The matching belt was a lovely postbox red colour so I decided to go Queen of Hearts / Alice themed with my nails. I even matched my lipstick!
I used a vinyl stencil from She Sells Seashells to create the negative space heart nail with a red polish and the white text nails I did using a Mo-You Alice stamping plate – the text is actually quotes from the story.
I am glad I got this dress, there certainly wasn’t anyone else wearing a dress like mine, but then no one had blue hair either so maybe it was a bad thing!?
I really hope I get another occasion to wear this dress as I do love the fit and fabric and obviously the print.
Have you ever bought a Lindy Bop dress? What did you think, let me know below.
