Continuing the last post, here are some of the other LBDs. These are less sequins and more pattern and as per usual with all my buys, they have a story to tell.
Little Black Dresses
I bought this dress in uni from Bulletproof in Liverpool. It was my third & final year and we were having a party and I found this on the sale rail. I just love the flowers and I’ve worn it so many times. It’s definitely a go-to dress of choice when I just can’t decide what to wear.
I bought this dress in Leeds from Pop Boutique. It had a faulty zip so it was really cheap. I got my Mum to do a nip & tuck and then it was back to normal :). I love the bow on the front and the top bit has a cape thing with cute buttons on the back.
This one isn’t vintage but I just loved the hummingbird pattern on it and cut-out back . I looks quite oriental and is really fitted – so like my dress from Beyond Retro no big meals to be eaten in this one! The picture is from a Christmas night out with friends from my Post Graduate degree.
This dress is from Oxfam Hove and is a recent addition. It was on a mannequin in the window but I wasn’t too sure. Then, Oxfam Hove came to Oxford to do a pop-up shop and I decided to go for it. It’s blue/black coloured so just about makes the LBD list!
I have to admit I’ve never worn this dress. EVER. And, I’ve had it since I was 18 (so like 8 years…). I bought it from Resurrection in Liverpool and I’ve just never found the right night out/event for it. This is really one I should give up but just can’t. One day…
This dress is from the Oxfam Festival Shop and although it’s quite plain I love the see-through detail. I first wore it for Valentine’s Day this year, with some vintage shoes. I love vintage shoes but dear me, my feet hurt when I got home.
This was another purchase from when I was at Uni. It’s a reworked vintage dress and I bought it from Raider’s Boutique in liverpool. I was the student radio president and I was hosting the awards night, I had no money for a new dress and begged my Dad for one – and this was the result! You can’t really see the dress in the uni photo but best one I could find.
Hope you’ve enjoyed looking through my wardrobe.
