Little Red Sixties Style Dress

By the time you read this, I shall, all being well, be en-route to Nerja in Southern Spain with my parents and children for the week and to say I'm excited would be quite the understatement. I don't now what the wifi will be like but I'm hoping to share some photographs via Instagram and Facebook if you'd like some sneak peeks ahead of the blog posts that I'll write upon my return. From what I've seen of the resort online it is absolutely beautiful and I'm very much looking forward to practicing my photography.

I wore this red sixties style dress on Saturday evening when the girls came for drinks and nibbles. It's another of my favourites from three, possibly four, summers ago and I actually have the same dress in a narrow navy and white stripe. It's a ponte jersey fabric which has a nice stretch to it and which is easy and comfortable to wear. I teamed it with my cream and black polka dot sandals and my favourite gold Danon jewellery from my online boutique, Lizzy O. Every month in my newsletter, I include an exclusive discount code to use at Lizzy O. The next one will be out on August 1st, so hurry and sign (under the photograph of the jewellery in the right-hand sidebar of my blog).

I have another blog post scheduled for Friday morning in which I review a gorgeous little tearoom in Skipton, so if you're planning to visit the Dales or just want to see some pictures of the mouthwatering afternoon tea I had with my daughter, then keep an eye out.

Have a lovely week and I'll be back after my holiday.

Love Liz x

  1. Look stunning. I am pretty much fan of the sixties. Even if the feminine condition was not at its best (well, there are still improvements on process today ...), the way women were taken care of their appearance, always surprised me. Lovely vacay.

    1. Yes I agree. The women took great care of themselves and were generally feminine and elegant xxx

  2. Absolutely wonderful and stunning! You are, no doubt, the authentic top.

  3. The perfect red dress for you-you look gorgeous as always x

  4. I love this colour on you - really stunning. Is it the photos or is there an orange tone to the red - which is what seems to make it work so well? It's a perfect fit too. Enjoy your holiday! Kx

    1. Thank you. You are rIght! It is an orange-red which is much better for my fair skin than a pinkish red (or a red with blue-ish tones). I'm not sure that makes sense but thank you again! xxx

  5. It's a lovely dress on you, Lizzy. It certainly accentuates your curves (I'm just envious lol!).
    Have a wonderful time in Spain! I hope it's not too hot there at the moment.

    1. Thank you Suzy! You made me smile because after seeing the photos, I thought I looked very buxom-much more so than in real love fe! I debated about even using the pictures but I guess some dresses will have that effect!!! It's very hot in Spain but we're very close to the sea so it's easy to cool down! xxx

  6. Love this pretty orange-red sheath. Just my kind of dress as well. Ive seen the heels on IG and perfect for this outfit. Lovely!
