Review of the Lindy Bop “Ophelia” dress

The Lindy Bop Ophelia dress in turquoise is simply stunning! It retails at £34.99 from Lindy Bop – Lindy Bop website

This dress runs small across the bust and waist so you may have to go up a size as Lindy Bop sizes are not the same as the high street.

This dress has a lined fitted bodice and a flared skirt which looks fantastic when being twirled on the dance floor! You can team this dress with a petticoat for “extra flare”.

It has a beautiful “sweetheart” neckline, a hidden side zip and hidden pockets.

This dress is made from 97% cotton and 3% elastane and can be washed in the washing machine.

I like to wear red accessories with this dress as the red really compliments the turquoise.

Review of the Lindy Bop “Deanna” dress

This glamorous 40’s & 50’s style dress currently retails for £29.99 direct from Lindy Bop – Lindy Bop website

This dress is made from a stretchy cotton fabric to create that “wiggle dress” look. It has a flattering leopard print collar and button detail on the front to the bodice. It has a hidden zip at the back and 3/4 length sleeves.

This dress is made of 97% polyester and 3% spandex and can be washed in the washing machine. This dress is also true to size.

This dress is great for the office or glammed up with some earrings, big hair, seamed stockings and a pair of heels for a night on the town!

Harrogate 1940’s Day 2015

Hosted by The Friends of Valley Gardens, a local charity which helps to look after the beautiful park in Harrogate, the 1940’s day was another rip roaring success.

With a wide variety of stalls, tents and entertainment there was plenty to do and see for people of all ages. There was a great selection of food vans and cake stalls and also a beer tent.

A choir, singers and a big band had people up on their feet dancing away which was a great way for people to mingle and have a laugh. There were also military vehicles and vintage cars for people to admire and have their pictures taken with.

The weather held out and the sun was glorious for the Spitfire flyover which went down a real treat. Friends and families (dogs included!) enjoyed picnics and made the most of the lovely weather.

This event was another great success and the atmosphere was fantastic. A lovely way to spend a Sunday and raise money for The Friends of Valley Gardens at the same time! I will definitely be returning next year.

People often ask me if I wear false eyelashes. I don’t. I just use a lot of mascara and often two different ones to get a big lash look!

My natural lashes are quite light and make my eyes look small. But a white eyeshadow and lashings and lashings of mascara, I manage to open up my eyes making them look big and bright!

Here are before and after pictures and also pictures of the products I used today. I like to apply white eyeshadow before applying the mascara. I used two mascaras today to achieve this look, one has a big fat wand and the other has a curved wand. I finished off the look by defining my brows with Ultra Aqua Brow Tint.

Review of Lindy Bop WW2 Amie / Juliet Tea Dress

I have these dresses in red, blue and black and I often wear them for work but these dresses are also great for dressing up with big hair and retro jewellery for evening wear.

The Amie and the Juliet are very similar, the Juliet has a cute small opening at the front and back whereas the Amie does not.

I wear these dresses with a plain straight petticoat / slip underneath. The design of the dress is great, it does not cling to those lumps and bumps and skims over your hips.

I wear this dress all year round as you can team it with a cardigan and some vintage boots if the weather is a little chilly.

At £29.99 the dress is very reasonably priced and I would definitely recommend purchasing one, if not all of the colours!
