Travelling for over three weeks with an imposed 10 kilos of luggage allowance means only the essentials made it into my carry-on luggage. So, it’s no wonder this vintage style Fever London dress made the cut. I’m sure you can forgive me for classing this as an outfit post, after all the look is so simple: polka dots, tan accessories and a pair of classic sunglasses, yet it was my favourite outfit of the holiday.
This polka dot dress, my first introduction to Fever London, has made such a good impression on me. It’s like meeting someone who instantly gets you. First of all, the cut is perfect. It’s fitted on top to define my waist (heck, it’s the smallest part of me, I like a dress to show that!) and cut in an a-line to create a vintage silhouette. I chose to buy it in the shorter length, opposed to midi, and it reaches my knees…ensuring my dignity for a day of site seeing. It’s also made from cotton, ultra cool when the temperature is hitting 30 degrees. I also took another Fever London dress, of which I’ll be sharing soon, and already it’s a brand I’m so taken with. Fever’s new autumn/winter range is enough to fill a wishlist post for any vintage loving girl.
Yes, you’ll notice, the Brit Stitch bag finally got its day. I bought the Brit Stitch half pint in rust after seeing the word tan mentioned in the title bar. It was during Brit Stitch’s half price flash sale and I felt that it was bargain. However, when it arrived, the colour wasn’t what I expected and I was in two minds whether to send it back. The excellent quality of the satchel convinced me that it was a good quality basic (you know how much I love a good basic!) and for £35, it was worth keeping.

I think it’s safe to say we won’t be enjoying temperatures so high until next year. I’m already planning on how I’ll rework this dress for a winter look, yes I love it that much. You can find out what we got up to in Vienna in my next post, ‘Viennese Whirl :: A Day in Vienna’ coming Monday.
What do you wear for a city break in summer?
As always, much love,
