Stranger In The Night


No, I didn't go into early retirement, haha. You know when you get to a point where life just gets ahead of you and you just loose track? Well that has been me for the last few weeks, but I'm back with the most fabulous number.
 Dress: Voodoo Vixen
Shrug: eBay
Tights: Boots
Flats: Dorothy Perkins^
Do you remember this post way back when? Well in said post I mentioned I had bought two Voodoo Vixen dresses - this is the second. I've worn this dress so much recently and you can see why: lots of colour, a great cut and length, and perfect to dress down into a Spring (yes, it's still Spring!) sandal and shade wearing outfit. On this occasion I decided to dress it up a little with a shrug and some cut peep-toe flats. I don't know why people are under the impression you can't wear tights with peep-toe shoes; I personally love it and think the look works really well with the dress. I love the little bows at the end and the touch of gold breaks up the black of the tights and shoes. 
The thing that's great about Voodoo Vixen is that their dresses (or at least the two that I have) are so easy to wear and breathable. This one in particular has a lovely stretch to it  and as the days get warmer, feeling like I can easily manoeuvre myself around London amongst the heat and the people, is an absolute must. The pattern of the dress is bright and wonderfully colourful (despite the black base), I adore the red piping along the bust, and the red buttons down the middle are a cute finishing touch. 

Voodoo Vixen are slowly expanding their plus size range and that's wonderful news for us vintage loving gals. I'll definitely be hoping to add to my collection soon! 

'til next time.

Love and hugs,

  1. I can't wait for VV to expand their plus range but this looks beautiful on you! What a gorgeous print x

  2. Such a lovely dress! Looks great on you. I wish I could wear peep toe shoes but they squash my toes so badly :-/ Still, I always try on ones I like in the hope they'll be the exception to the rule...x
