That 70s Dress - Pink Clove Dress with Bardot Frill



You may recognise this Pink Clove dress from my very first Lust List. It took me a little while to commit, because I was worried that the busy 70s boob frill might overwhelm me a bit, but then I saw it on two gorgeous bloggers - Lolly Likes wearing the dress and A Rose Like This wearing the top - and I was convinced. 




What first struck me about this dress was the colours. I love autumnal colours as they are just perfect on red heads (real and unreal ones!). I ordered it from Asos Curve in my usual size 22, and if fit perfectly but was slightly on the short side (I'm 5'8") so I felt the need to pair it with leggings as I would have felt a little too exposed in tights. For shorter girls this probably wouldn't be a problem.

The Bardot neckline is just one of my favourites, and such a great look for the forthcoming season. It's the perfect way to show a little flesh off while barely revealing anything - very sensual. In these pics the neckline seems to have crept right back on to my shoulders so next time I promise to make sure it's off the shoulder - nice to know it works either way though.




The frill, which is the thing I was most apprehensive about, has actually turned out to be my favourite feature. It creates these sweet, fluttery sleeves and takes this from just a cute dress to a real statement piece. 

This summer we are going to see the return of a lot of seventies fashion which I am thrilled about. I've always had quite the hippy heart and in my early twenties I was all about that hippy / gypsy aesthetic so I am always pleased when this sort of look comes round again. The vintage vibe of this dress means it's perfect for a festival in the summer - just add wellies!


As you can probably tell, I'm pretty enamored with this dress. Pink Curve really owned it with this one. More of the same please!

How are you feeling about the returning 70s trend? Got yourself any Bardot tops or dresses? Let me know in the comments.
