Lana Love In: Lindy Bop Lana in Green

Phew! The last few weeks have been obscenely busy. Every aspect of my life, from work to social to dating, seems to have been in overdrive and something had to give. Sadly it was blogging - and so I've gone two weeks without posting. The longest since I started! It was a necessary time out just to get through this patch, but I really missed it which is a good sign! So no more hiatus, I'm back!

So, on with the show...


Black petticoat - Lindy Bop
Black Freddie cardigan - Collectif
Belt and shoes - Primark

I am a complete convert to Lindy Bob's Lana dress. Like, I flipping love her! She's versatile, she's vintage, she's classy as hell. And she comes in a load of colours. Which means there will be many more Lanas to come! I also love the Lana, because like with all the Lindy Bop dresses, it is really reasonably priced. This is a really great starter brand for those looking to get into vintage fashion but not able or willing to make a big investment. The dresses are cheap and cheerful, in a variety of colours and prints. The quality isn't as high say as Collectif or Lady V, but for the price I am not expecting it to be. 





My latest Lana is one of my absolute favorite shades of green - makes my red/pink headed heart so happy. My first Lana was the Dark Blue Floral version and the major difference between the two is the lack of a lining under the skirt of the green version. Here I am wearing it with a Lindy Bop petticoat, in black, and so the lack of lining is not problematic, however when I have worn it without the petticoat I have certainly missed the lining. It just gives you a bit more structure and a better outline. I think the Lana really comes into her own with a petticoat. It just gives her that structure that makes for a real fifties silhouette, and is perfect with the fullness of the skirt. 





One of the things I love so much about the Lana is she is just so wearable. I wore this to a family function - it was a BBQ (yes, I know for a lot of people this is overdressed!) - and I felt fabulous. But I can wear this to work just as easily without the petticoat, and the first time I wore it was on a night out.

Have you got anything from Lindy Bop? Have you got a Lana? Let me know...

    1. I find it so comfortable, I just love it. I don't think it's small across the bust, probably about average, but then I am not nearly as gifted as you are in that area love ;)
