Sometimes, a dress comes along so perfect that it sends your heart aflutter until you’ve calculated the ways and means to make it yours. This is what happened to me with the Lindy Bop Claudine dress.
Was I in the market for a brand new dress? Certainly not. Considering June’s dresses were sourced from charity shops, car boots and swaps, this vintage reproduction shirt dress was a bolt from the blue. To be honest, I never intended to share this dress on the blog because to me, it’s an everyday dress akin to a denim lover’s trusted jeans, but walking home through Burnley one afternoon in the summer sunshine, I realised that I’d fallen hard for this dress and needed to share it. So, we stopped in the street and snapped it, right there, right then.
With its nipped in waist and flared swing skirt, the Claudine dress has become my summer go to dress. It skims over my hips, revealing my curves but remains comfortable and flattering at the same time. As it’s made from a heavy-weight cotton, it’s sturdy enough to resist a strong gust of wind but cool enough for a British summer. At the moment, Lindy Bop are offering 20% off and Claudine is £23.99! She’s so cheap but feels so expensive!

This is probably the simplest outfit post I’ve ever featured on Polkadot Pink, it’s very much a casual, easy outfit that is typical of what I wear when the heat starts to soar. Forgive me, I don’t have my usual face of make up on nor have the straightest hair, but this is very much a real account of what I wore for an afternoon of shopping in Manchester. Not just a dress for summer, I’ve already hatched plans to wear this with tights, a cute pair of shoes and a cardigan for autumn.
Is it just me looking for transitional pieces right now?
What do you think of Claudine?
