It’s that time again folks! I was hoping to release these photos when spring had arrived but low and behold, more snow is on the horizon. It’s almost become a tradition, haha!
So back we go, to that wonderful day at the start of March when I spent the day with Cat from Kitty Jones photography.
We were located in the ‘Old End’ of Llantwit Major town. This side of the town is filled with beautiful buildings which are hundreds of years old. We began near the dovecote set in an open field in the beautiful Welsh countryside with views for miles over to the local beach.
The conclusion of the shoot celebrated one of my Black Friday Sale deals from Lindy Bop – Corinna.
For the shoot, I have paired it with a true vintage cardigan that I purchased as the vintage kilo sale in Cardiff. Goodness knows what era it is, but it does exactly what I wanted; a cream cardi that would not show the pattern of the dress beneath. Not a massive ask, but I’ve spent 2 years searching the high street! Urgh!
Now, red and white polka dot is my all time favourite colour/pattern combination. It’s just makes my heart sing. The added cuteness of the Corinna dress is that instead of dots, you have little white hearts. Sweet!
I wouldn’t normally choose a dress that buttons up over the bust but this dress has an shirred elasticated back that not only gives you comfort and wearablity, but it is generous across the bust so there is no pulling or gaping. It also makes it easy to take on and off, great for days where my dexterity isn’t it’s best and buttons are a no go.
The dress has a generous shoulder strap so it gives us larger busted gals plenty of coverage over unsightly bra straps and is trimmed with a lovely white ric-rac ribbon. This trim is replicated on the pockets situated on the front of the skirt.
Pockets in a skirt or dress make me really happy, is it just me?
The dress is made of a light cotton with a lovely full skirt. It may not come out at this time of year again but already cannot wait to pair it with sunnies, sandals and a hat through the summer.
I can definitely see me buying another Corinna dress from Lindy Bop. I’m always happy with the quality of the dresses, their fit and shape. And this is no different!
