I was invited to take part in the Marks & Spencers Very Vintage challenge, where fashion bloggers show off their favourite vintage dress. My favourite vintage piece is this retro 70’s dress from Your Vintage Life.
Your Vintage Life is run by Kate and Adam, who live in the same small village as me in Bedfordshire. They sell a massive range of vintage goods, including fashion, furniture and homewares. If you’re local to the Milton Keynes or Bedford area, check out the new Vintage Bedford & MK blog site that Kate has recently created.
This gorgeous navy blue prairie dress is an original from the 70’s, and it has been reworked to make it more wearable for the modern day. It has gorgeous white floral embroidery down the front and the sleeves of the dress which I just love. I also love the scooped neckline, floaty chiffon fabric, and flared skater skirt. I chose this as my favourite vintage dress because it has a flattering fit, and I love the shape and style of this pretty dress.
M&S sell lots of gorgeous timelessly stylish dresses, but I love this
one, and I can imagine it being ‘vintage’ and still wearable in 30+ years time. I love lace, and I think it can be transferred from decade to decade, and it isn’t specific to one era. It’s so classical, and the cream colour is neutral, perfect for any occasion.
