So here it is, our very own thread grin

Let me begin by saying, whoever it was who mentioned Ruby Shoo, my bank balance won't thank you!

I'm just here for the lovely pictures- don't mind me.

Talia - put yours on, it is gorgeous!

I also want to see photos of Single - her style sounds fabulous

TaliZorah Wed 30-Dec-15 20:54:03

User thank you! Here it is. This is one of my dresses as well from Lindybop! Ignore the lack of shoes...

user7755 Wed 30-Dec-15 20:57:08

I think it is the accessories which make the difference between tacky fancy dress and really stylish.

Is that a dress or top and skirt?

TaliZorah Wed 30-Dec-15 20:58:13

It's a dress with a cropped cardigan smile

I think so too!

user7755 Wed 30-Dec-15 21:00:02

It looks lovely, the pattern on the skirt is gorgeous, quite unusual.

TaliZorah Wed 30-Dec-15 21:01:03

Thank you! I hope someone else posts pics now, I feel alone on here!

Currently lusting after VoH skirts grin

I love those black shoes!

user7755 Wed 30-Dec-15 21:10:03

I'm on ebay, having a nosey. Fancy something a bit 60's for work. Full on circle skirt not really the done thing but can get away with 60s as it's a bit more subtle.

I don't do pictures of me but will post other pics as I find them grin

TaliZorah Wed 30-Dec-15 21:12:09

user I've been lucky I've always been able to get away with wearing my normal stuff. Might post some of my brooches in a bit

GarlicCake Wed 30-Dec-15 21:21:03

Tragically, I am vintage and Tethers probably has my old clothes in her static-illuminated wardrobe.

GarlicCake Wed 30-Dec-15 21:32:04

User7755, would something like this be any good? Both from Asos. They have a ton of 60s style stuff.

user7755 Wed 30-Dec-15 22:02:01

Oh I will definitely look at those, thanks Garlic grin

tethersend Wed 30-Dec-15 23:17:46

Agree, asks has some fab 60s stuff atm.

This and this in particular.

tethersend Wed 30-Dec-15 23:18:20

ASOS, not asks angry

PetiteBateau Wed 30-Dec-15 23:33:18

Ooh lovely thread!!

user7755 Wed 30-Dec-15 23:53:07

Just found these two, hovering over the submit payment button as I'm a bit skint.

what do you think?

Am 5ft 5, size 10, with boobs and hips. Dark hair, mid length bob (if that has anything to do with anything.

user7755 Wed 30-Dec-15 23:53:57

They don't seem to have much in my size

I love a bit of 50s styling and this year I made two circle skirts and bought a proper chiffon underskirt. It seems to suit me as I seem to get compliments when I wear them.

One if a black on white polka dot with a wide elastic waistband and I wear it with a striped top.

The other is a cherry print and has a regular zip and button waistband. I made a top from the same fabric but it's not completely right so I normally wear a v-neck plain top.

I feel very dressed when I wear them, but not overdone. I love them!

Yay I just bought the ophelia from Lindy bop inspired by the other thread! Everyone was hating on them but they are beautiful! It's in a lovely green colour and was 9.99! And free delivery... Here's hoping it fits!

TaliZorah Thu 31-Dec-15 07:00:21

flighty those look amazing! I wish I could sew but I just can't, I'd love to make stuff.

user the first outfit is awesome, get it grin

donajimena Thu 31-Dec-15 07:03:51

I've recently been shopping at an online store called 'atom retro'
This is my latest purchase

TaliZorah Thu 31-Dec-15 08:21:01

Does anyone know where I can get some good belts from to go with vintage dresses? You can see in the green dress pic the dress is hanging away from me, but I can't wear waist belts because my torso is so short it is wider than it...

I like thin coloured belts but can't find any!

Pipbin Thu 31-Dec-15 08:25:08

eBay is your friend for belts.

I'm lucky that I have a wonderful vintage boutique in my town. She now has all my money.
