Lucy Loves Vintage : Tea Dress Review

I was so excited last week to receive my gorgeous vintage tea dress from Lucy Loves Vintage, an independent vintage e-retailer owned by Marie (the store is named after her daughter, Lucy!)

I was selected to choose a dress from their website so I could show it off to you, my readers! I chose the  Josie Royal Blue Tea Dress by Lindy Bop. Lucy’s have a beautiful range of prom,rockabilly and tea dresses in vintage styles- 40s – 50s mostly. I understand they also have shoes to offer also… I need to bat my lashes at Marie! 

I had great fun shooting this outside by myself using odd household objects to prop my camera and creative use of the timer…

As you can see the dress fits rather nicely (it’s a size 10) though a little snug on the bust (I’m a 32D). The hips measurements were ample, though.

I paired this dress with my grandmother’s vintage (and sadly broken) Rotary watch and my vintage RAF sweetheart badge (Psst, this was because I stupidly smudged my lipstick on the dress while pulling it on, too lazy to undo the buttons!!!)

My lipstick is No7, and my nail polish is Barry M.

You can follow Lucy Loves on Twitter and on Instagram @Lucylovesv.

The dresses are all very reasonable in price, with this one at £29.99. I quite fancy this flared Jenna Dress for £19.00.

A HUGE thank you to the team at LLV — I’d certainly be interested it working with- and shopping with- them again in the future.
