Lindy Bop Bletchley DressLindy Bop Bletchley Dress :: Christmas 

Planning what to wear each Christmas day has become one of my favourite festive traditions: each year choosing my outfit by mid-November. This year was different. I left everything to the last minute; decorating, wrapping, card writing, you name it- deciding what to wear seemed like one more thing to add to the list. Fuelled by Bucks Fizz and the promise of a hearty Christmas dinner, I decided on Christmas morning for a fail-safe option: my Lindy Bop Bletchley dress.

This autumn/winter season saw Lindy Bop experiment with their well-loved classic style by adding their new luxury silver screen range and most controversially, those printed polyester fabrics. We saw their designs expand to include playful prints and many Peter Pan collars. To me, they’d loosened the reigns and allowed creativity to roam free. The Bletchley Winter Trees dress is just one of many new dresses to have hit their site this season.

Lindy Bop Bletchley DressOver the years, I have developed a love-hate relationship with Lindy Bop. From my experience, their inconsistent sizing can turn ordering into a gambling experience. When the odds are in my favour, I scour their website for similar dresses and too good to be true reductions. With Bletchley, I’m winning. 

The Winter Trees dress features just that: winter trees among snow lodges and deer in a forest of unexpected pops of pink and turquoise. Being petite, the length of the dress is just right: it sits just under the knee and with a petticoat, at the knee. Made from 97% cotton and 3% elastane, I’d describe the fabric as a stretch cotton. Perfect for hiding a food baby, it’s also good for those who can find Lindy Bop arm sizes restrictive.

You might have noticed that things are starting to look a little different around here. Over the past few weeks, I’ve had help to transition over to WordPress from Blogger. It’s still a work in progress, but here’s hoping that in the new year, Polkadot Pink will be back and bigger than ever! Thanks for sticking around!
