Dress of the Day: Dollydagger’s Sailorette Dress


Well, hello sailor(ette)! It’s totally the wrong season for this dress here at Fashion Police Headquarters, but hey, it’s summer in Australia, so I feel justified in showing you this piece of utter cuteness.

Fold down collar, buttons down the front and that fabulous little nipped in waist all combine to create this fabulous, retro look. Wear with a pair of high heeled pumps and some bright red lipstick and just pretend it’s summer, even if it’s snowing…

Buy: Sailorette dress, £56, Dollydagger

    I have to admit, I’m turned off by the horizontal / vertical stripes on this dress. The styling is cute, yes, but I can’t get over the mismatched stripes.
