Dress of the Day: Dollydagger 50s style Scarlet Dress


Betty Draper would be ALL OVER this dress, wouldn’t she? And we would too, to be perfectly honest with you. In fact, we’re kind of kicking ourselves for breaking one of our golden rules – Thou Shalt Not Visit The Dollydagger Website Unless Thou Art Prepared to Spend A Lot of Money – and allowing About Your Dress to seduce us into clicking the link to this, because even although we have nowhere to wear it, and are about £100 short of the £130 we’d need to buy it, it’s going to haunt us forever now.

This is from Dollydagger’s own Boutique Collection, and is in that classic 50s style which is currently very much in fashion, but which never really goes out of it. It’ll be much too flowery and feminine for some tastes, but if you like your dresses big, beautiful, and with a bit of retro flair to them, you’re probably drooling on your screen right now. We’ll give you a moment to clean yourselves up before we continue.

As we mentioned, this is £130, and if you’re stuck for places to wear it, we’d suggest tucking it away until the next time you’re invited to a summer wedding – or are even asked to be a bridesmaid at one.

What do you think? Innocent or Guilty?

    OH MY GOD!!! Amber, I bought this dress on friday and wanted to tweet you about it :-))))
    Even in Milan, I couldn’t find something that gorgeous without spending at least 7 times that price. So it will be The Summer Dress, they shipped it today and I want the matching petticoat too for more drama!!

    i’m drooling all over here! Buying this dress would be an investment, because it never goes out of style so you can wear it for the rest of your life! Or at least, I would 🙂

    Thank you so much for mentioning About Your Dress! We couldn’t be more chuffed (unless someone bought us each one of these dresses, of course…)
