I’ve always purchased online mainly from Pinup Girl Clothing, preferring to stick to purchasing real vintage due to being romanced by the back story that comes every garment.
In December, I ordered a my first Lindy Bop haul, reasoning that I should at least give them a try. For those new to the world of Lindy Bop the brand only began in 2011 with the aim of providing ladies like you and I with affordable vintage inspired garments.
I’d been put off Lindy Bop by some blogger reports that the quality left a lot to be desired, however I was pleasantly surprised. The dresses I purchased both came in around the £20 mark and to be honest I wasn’t expecting miracles as this price point is just above Primark prices!
So what did i purchase I hear you cry? Well due to my new pink hair do I was wooed by the ‘Vanessa’ Polka Dot Pink Wiggle Dress and the equally colourful ‘Vivi Pink Rainforest Floral Dress’. Oh and I thought I’d try out one of the petticoats in Candy Pink as during the sale it was a bargainous £6.99!
The Vanessa dress was the one I was most dubious about, purely because the boob area looked a little loose when I’d seen it on lovely ladies on Instagram. This dress fits like a glove – I’ll definitely be investing in more. As for the Vivi dress, I purchased it in a size 12 and although it fits perfectly everywhere, it’s waist is slightly high for me – however I am 5ft 9 so this could be why.
Anyway, don’t be put off ladies, give Lindy Bop a whirl. There’s often sales – so go grab a bargain and brighten up those cloudy UK dreary days with a splash of colour.
*As with all online shopping, please check your sizing measurements before you order as returns are costly as I’ve learned the hard way.
