oh my, my, oh hell yes, honey put on that party dress

During a routine stalking/wishlisting of Topshop's clothing collection, I came across this trend of dressing like a 60's Dollybird in fantastically bright swingy shift dresses. I love the great flower detailing at the end of the sleeves and dress hem, as well as the fun beachiness of the crocheted dresses. Personally, I am partial to the orange and blue shift dresses, but I am tempted to get all of them! Who could resist a dress that looks like it came out of the closets of Jane Asher and Jean Shrimpton?!
Snag one here

Title: from "Mary Jane's Last Dance" (Tom Petty)

Love the dresses, but there really is nothing like the real thing!

Thank you very much ACC! Though I can't take credit, I pretty much stole it from Topshop and just did a screen shot of the dresses. I'm awful! :)

Isn't it Jessica? I think it's that nice (and rare) shade that can look good on any skin tone and make you look healthy ... and NOT like a giant carrot!

Emma B - too true! If my life was a movie, all of my 'costumes' would be vintage pieces!
I am looking at the link to your name Emma and this site is INCREDIBLE!! So many lustworthy pieces of vintage and archived clothing!!

I've just discovered your blog, and now I'm a little bit in love with it. :) I could have left this comment on any of your other posts, but I wanted to say (on a slightly irrelevant note) that I am a huge Tom Petty fan, and it made me very happy to see a quote from his lyrics as the title for this!

Hi Miki!
I'm so happy you found my blog! I adore Tom Petty and I've been waiting to use these lyrics on a post about dresses worthy of their greatness haha!

Excellent blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm totally overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Many thanks!
