Covert Candy Vintage

I was sent this gorgeous dress by Covert Candy from their Vintage shop some time back. I have been desperate to wear it for some time but just have not had the right place to wear it. Today, I decided to try it on anyway, even though I will not be wearing it all day, as it seems a shame to wear it for sitting around the house and it is also a little warm. It has the most amazing and unusual print as you can just about see from the photos. The only thing about it that I don't like is that it is nylon, something that I wouldn't usually wear but for the beauty of the design on it, I can forgive anything. Please feel free to leave comments on ideas for where I could wear my vintage dress.

Wow, that's a fabulous dress! The intricate detailing and sassy colour really gives it a sense of luxury and expense. It just goes to show that vintage styling is definitely a modern day thing just now, and designers are even producing new pieces based on vintage ideas, - great stuff!
