Friday Finds - Vintage Floral Dresses

Today is the first post for a new weekly feature that I have decided to run called Friday Finds. Each week I am going to feature some gorgeous clothing and accessories that I have found. All the clothing featured will have some element of sustainability be it second hand, vintage,from a clothes swap site, made locally, using sustainable or recycled materials or just quality pieces of clothing that you will last for years to come.

This week I have been scouring the internet for vintage floral dresses to satisfy my craving for patterns and in preparation for Vintage at Goodwood (my tickets arrived today and I am so excited). I am loving the a line vintage shapes which work so well to disguise my large hips and thighs.
70's Ditsy Blue Sundress from Love Miss Daisy (size 12)

Bright White Daisy Floral Mod Indie Dress from antiqueboutiquevintage on ebay (waist 32)

60's /70's Bright Floral Dress from The Looking Glass on ebay (waist 28")

70's / 80's Floral Buttoned Summer Dress at Martha's Closet
This is the one that I chose to buy but check out the site for lots more lovely items.

What do you think of these dresses? Do you have any great vintage stores that you would like to share?
Have a great weekend!
