I ordered the Lana Leopard Print Dress from Lindy Bop last June via Amazon. I have always been weary of buying clothing off Amazon, but figured since Lindy Bop was a reputable retro clothing brand, I would be okay. Well, other than ordering the wrong size (due to my own fault and resulting in having to get it altered), I am pretty happy with the quality and style of the dress.
I had been on the hunt for a leopard print dress to wear to work and this one ticked off all the right boxes. I liked the leopard pattern, it had a neckline and straps that I liked (I can wear a regular bra!), fuller A-line skirt and I liked that style is versatile so I can layer it many different ways.
A lot of people segregate 40s/50s/60s retro style (or new vintage) fashion into only being for "rockabilly" or "pinup" types, which is fine and dandy, but in truth they are classic silhouette's that are classic for a reason. I could write a whole blog just about how styling garments to fit your taste regardless of what umbrella term it falls into a genre sense, but no one needs that. In other words, wear what makes you happy and what you feel flatters you.
Break all the rules! *Wink*
