Have you ever seen a dress where you just have to have it? Nothing else matter but owning this dress? Well the Gilda Green Alpine Print Swing Dress from Lindy Bop was one such dress.
I’ve been having my eyes on it for so long – well a year to be exact. I saw this last year on the website but I was too late and it has sold out. So as you can imagine, how excited I was when this got restocked and became available again this year. This dress was going to be mine! It was going to be my – what I’m dabbing as ‘Christmas dress’. It’d be a dress I would wear on Christmas day and I’d be so festive and fabulous.
Lindy Bop dresses are a big favorite of my mine due to their swing dresses range which suit my rather small (but large if you get my meaning) apple figure. It hide the undesirable part while still give you that vintage glamour. This year I have gone rather Lindy Bop Mad!
Anyway I ordered the dress and here is me wearing the Gilda Green Alpine Print Swing Dress. Please excuse my awkward weird expression on my face, not sure what going on there.
The dress itself is as lovely in real life as it was on the website. When my husband saw this, he thought I looked a little too much like 1950s housewife. To be honest I agree with him. But that however didn’t stop me loving this. The skirt is full of swing and flare. I could quite happily go dancing in this. The bodice itself is a little tight and didn’t work well on my figure. Next time I wear this I might complement this with a belt. I also like how the skirt have a pocket. I’m a big fan of pocket skirt.
If you are lucky enough to catch the Gilda Green Alpine Print Swing Dress next year before its get sold out again – then you won’t be disappointed. There is off course, if you can’t wait – Ebay.
