Roses for my Sweetheart

This is a reproduction dress but it’s seriously good – if not for the invisible zip and slight stretch to the material, it nearly had me fooled!  I turned a few heads doing the groceries in this after work. 🙂


Outfit: 1940s inspired dress by Lilli Jean Originals, featuring embroidered red roses on bodice and turn back cuffs, wide black belt.

Shoes: Black suede pumps.

Hair: Victory rolls to front, lengths in a red crocheted snood.

Accessories: Black fishnet tights, vintage (1940s) sweetheart locket expansion bracelet, vintage (1940s) twin heart locket necklace, oval ruby and gold stud earrings.

Perfume: Vera Wang ‘Lovestruck’.

    1. Thanks so much Karen! I love this one too and am a bit of sucker for a snood. They are so practical and look nice at the same time, and I admire people who can do crafts like crochet – I’m hopeless! D xx
