#103 Mad Women

Wowza, Do you watch ManMen? What an amazing influence that this program has had on fashion eh ladies?

This 50's inspired sweetheart with a darling crosshatch fabric is from Closet for Dorothy Perkins.

Dotty P's have a great range of pencil dresses but this one caught my eye as it sits just below the knee line rather than the usual, frustrating and all to frequent mini dresses of this ilk.

And as Roger Dtirling would say "When God closes a door, he opens a dress"

Dotty P's       £42

#102 From the cover of 1930s Vogue to Top Shop

This stunning satin dress could have been worn by Rita Hayworth, it's so fabulous. Imagine this with a white long fur stole draped around the neck and some long silk opera gloves. And it clings to all the right places in all the right ways!
