Delightful Dress: May Day Pink Floral Swing Dress from Unique Vintage

A classic 1950's Rockabilly swing dress will suit almost any woman, with its feminine hourglass silhouette, cinched waist and full skirt.  The trend can be taken to the max when combined with victory rolls, a net petticoat, bright lips and patent heels or it can be pared down with some simple flat pumps and a lovely cardi.  There are so many fantastic 50's inspired dresses out there but for this post, I've gone to sunny California to the site Unique Vintage.  It's a fabulous site full of vintage inspired clothing for men and women, as well as gifts and accessories, and they do ship to the UK.

It's been really hard to pick just one dress from the site as there are so many, but by checking what's in the sale in a decent range of sizes I have chosen this pink and white floral swing dress which is still available in sizes small to extra-large.  I think it's a really pretty way of wearing the trend without going overboard and the pink detailing in the middle makes the waist seem tiny!  This dress is perfect for summer and would look lovely at a garden party or wedding.  Originally $130, it's $68 in the sale with shipping about $38 - so all in all, about £68 delivered.  But to be honest, I'll be stocking up with some accessories and other goodies from the site to make the shipping costs more economical....!
