I confess I’m not finding the High Street particularly inspiring at the moment. After a brief period where there was lots I loved, it appears to have slipped back into it’s fall back position where everything is just a *little* bit too short and none of the models stand up straight.
Still, there are some nice things out there, if you bear in mind that was is just on the knee on a 5’10” model will likely fall on or just below on the average woman.
This lace panelled dress is one of them. It reminds me a little of a now sadly defunct vintage dress I had. It’s slimline style could work for a 40s look really well. Or a late 50s one.
