OOTD Vintage Tea Dress

Oh man, I have been both mega busy and mega ill! I have so many pics for outfit posts in the pipeline but this is first chance I've had to post them!

So anyway..a few weeks ago three of fave plus bloggers Lolly, Rachel and Lisa posted about this tea dress from Very being reduced to £10.50.

I'm a massive sucker for a bargain so I couldn't resist, and it looked fab on all three of them.

I ordered the 18, and it fits OK apart from the top, its built for someone with alot more breasticles than me. I could probably have got away with the 16, but they didn't have it in stock when I ordered.

I'm wearing it with grey tights and black wedges.

As you can see, its very roomy up top on me, so if you're a larger cup size it would be perfect.

I decided to try it with my cute bow cardigan and this felt much more like me. Digging this pairing.

Overall for the money I think its really cute. I think it would be perfect for a summer wedding, or summer work wear.
Its still available on the Very website, but its now back up to £21.

Check out Lolly, Rachel and Lisa's blogs to see how they styled it. 


  1. I really love this frock! Before I started reading I actually thought it must have been a vintage find. I can totally relate to buying dresses which are WAY too big through the bust *sigh*

  2. I love how you have styled it! So fun and cute! :D x

  3. This looks lovely on you. I really like how you clashed the prints it looks amazing. Such a bargain too shame its gone back up xx

  4. I definitely love that you clashed prints! I DO love this dress, but I wanted it a bit more grunge looking so this pairing does wonders for it in my eyes!

  5. Thanks lovelies! I love it, but I don't have anything that really 'goes' with it so my only option was something a bit clashy lol. Might take it a bit further with some odd patterned leggings and dockers or something...

  6. This dress is really cute !
    I love the pattern :)
    I really like your tights too i don't think i have ever seen tights that colour !
    Launa xx

  7. This looks fab on you! I tried it but the fit was all over the shop. I like it with the cardi, too :) x

  8. You could always get the boobage taken in at a tailor. It still looks great on you though.
