The Classics

Trends may come and go, but classic pieces never go out of style.

Choose something flattering, well fitted, timeless and you’ll love it for a lifetime.

I haven’t done a fashion post in a little while, but a dress I’ve been waiting for finally arrived, and knowing you, I think you’ll love it just as much as I do!

Classics never go out of style!

Just look at that swish!

Total bargain of retro dress!

Acres of sturdy, tweed-like-but-thinner fabric, drawing you in at the waist, pushing you up at the bosom and swishing dreamily around your ankles.

Powerless to resist, this dress deserves a twirl!

Classic swish

I know what you’re thinking, it must be pricey.

It’s so elegant, so timeless, so proper!

Well, let’s see if you’re right. Guess the pricetag, then check this out.

I know, I know! If you were wearing glasses, you’d be peering at it like this…

Retro in London

Granted, it took an age to arrive, but at a price like that who could complain?

They actually have a whole range of retro dresses which I’m hurriedly stuffing into my cart as we speak.

Tweed and diamonds

Topped with a Chanelesque tweed blazer.

Retro sunnies and classic tweed

A good dollop of sparkle (similar).

Classic dress and simple accessories

Retro sunglasses, a Prada tote and Silver May rings.

All dressed up and awaiting my date.

Classics never go out of style

Greys with a pop of red, and Chanel pumps

Oh, and did I mention the back?

Open back dress

Just the thing for wandering hands to stroke.

Which of course his did, during Tosca last night at The Royal Opera House. A brilliant, brilliant performance and well worth a trip if classics are your thing.

If this dress is your cup of tea, then I presume they must be!
