One vintage style dress, three outfits



Carrie-Ann loves vintage fashion (original, repro - as long as it's '40s or '50s inspired, anything goes) and her husband, and has an unhealthy attachment to Doctor Who, confectionery, and the Oxford comma.

Hello lovely people!

It’s been a while since my last post, and I’m very sorry about that. Life has gotten in the way somewhat.

However, I’m very pleased to be back and thought I’d start by styling one of my very favourite vintage style Lady Voluptuous dresses three ways. My dress of choice was the teal Lyra wrap dress which is available in sizes 16-32 and is a dress that is so easy to dress up or down.


Outfit 1: Daytime casual

This outfit makes me think of cosy country pubs, open fires and mulled wine (which I’d inevitably spill down myself, but that’s by the by).

Faux fur Gilet from Oasis Curve (via Simply Be)

Boots from Simply Be (I think these might be my favourite thing about this whole outfit)

Choker from Simply Be

Outfit 2: Vintage inspired night out

I’ve clearly been influenced by the festive season when it came to choosing this evening outfit. But as my nan (a very wise woman) used to say: “You can’t go wrong with a bit of sparkle!”

Pearls and earrings from Lady V London

Hair flower from Shazam Vintage

Shoes from Yours Clothing

Outfit 3: Workwear

Someone at work once told me I ‘bring something different to the office’, while staring quite hard at my hair flowers. I took it as a compliment.

This is the sort of thing I’d wear on a grey and gloomy Tuesday to cheer myself up (while keeping myself nice and protected from unpredictable heating!).
