Payday pretties…

As you all know, I am pretty much addicted to my dresses. Now for some, it may seem like I have far too many, and to others it may be strange that I need so many.

For me it is logical and common sense.

I don’t own any “regular” clothes anymore. Mine have been donated to charity, or other friends. All I wear now is vintage style clothing. This means that every weekend when I am off work, or if going out after work, I put a dress (and usually a petticoat) a hair flower and vintage accessories on,  and I am done.

This means, that I need all those wonderful dresses and pretty accessories. You wouldn’t think twice if I came home with a couple of t-shirts, and some new jeans? It’s just that I choose to buy dresses.

Now, payday is only a couple of weeks away, and I have had my eye on a few pretties that are out there at the moment, and thought I would share them with you.

As you know, I love my Lindybop, my Dolly and Dotty and my Lady Voluptuous. My pennies won’t extend to a Pin Up Girl Clothing order at the moment unfortunately, but I can have one of these other special little numbers.

Dolly and Dotty Evelyn dress

It really is tricky to decide what to buy, and I certainly can’t afford all of them, so I have to look over them for now, lust at my favourites and then make a decision on which ONE I am going to have.

Do you have a favourite amongst the ones I have listed here? What do you think I should get?

Maybe you can see a way of styling one of these outfits that I have posted. I would love to hear your thoughts on exactly how you would have me wear it!

Till next time…

  • Your hair is absolutely stunning – wow! And such a beautiful dress on you. That shrug is also pretty fantastic – I’ve definitely got my eye on that one as I’m a huge fan of the Dolly & Dotty dresses! 🙂

    • Thank you Diana! I have to admit, my hairdresser did that for me, this time! keep your eyes peeled, that shrug may be making an appearance soon!

  • Hungry_Healthy_Happy

    I love the cherries dress. It’s really pretty, but fun too!

  • Wow I love the design on the lindybop wiggle dress it’s such a gorgeous dress x

  • Tori Gabriel

    I love the red and white striped dress. The bottom one reminds me of Anna’s dress style in Frozen. I think I’ve just seen Frozen way too many times!

    • Tanya Brannan

      You might just have done! Nothing wrong with that though…… Let it gooooooooooo 🙂

  • Kira L Curtis

    I love them! Especially the rose twin set dress! I wear a lot of black but the splash of colour works so well!

    • Tanya Brannan

      It is such a pretty pattern, and I love the fact that it is predominantly black

  • Harriet @ Toby&Roo

    I am super tight fisted, so if I came home with tops, dresses or anything unplanned I would tell myself off for days while my family wondered why I was being so daft – I do think if these dresses are your ‘thing’ and they make you get that bubbly, happy feeling inside when you get one, you should have thousands 🙂

    • Tanya Brannan

      Oh they certainly do. And I probably already have thousands :$

  • The Nice Nest

    My vote goes to the twin set skirt and top. It looks a glam up or dress down kind of outfit… then to the shoes, red or green or black? 🙂 I look forward to seeing what you choose!

    • Tanya Brannan

      Ooooh yes! Decisions decisions!

  • I really love the first black floral dress – SO stunning!

    • Tanya Brannan

      Dolly and Dotty have an amazing range at the moment

    • Tanya Brannan

      Yes, you do Sarah! Do it!!

    • Tanya Brannan

      I know just what you mean Beth, I think they are mine too x

  • Hellznails

    These are all so pretty. I do love the Dolly & Dotty May dress the most I think though.

    • Tanya Brannan

      Isn’t it a stunner? x

  • Those first two are gorgeous – I love the peter pan collar on the first and the stripes on the second.

    • Tanya Brannan

      That collar was precisely what drew me. Those striped just scream nautical to me!
