Lady Vintage – Plus-Size Hepburn Dress

I was recently invited to a fancy cocktail party so I finally had a reason to wear the red Hepburn dress I bought a few weeks ago. This dress came from one of my favourite shops: Lady Vintage – a shop definitely worth checking out. They sell absolutely lovely vintage-style plus-size dresses, though their plus-size selection seems to have significantly shrunk over the last few months. This particular dress has sold out in red, but is still available in several other beautiful colours here.

The dress is made in London and has a lovely shape – I think it really flatters my curves, especially when teamed with a belt. The big drawback of dresses like this for me is that they are sleeveless – I rather feel that bare upper arms do not agree with me and my figure.

Because of this I absolutely love this short bolero, which is basically nothing but a set of sleeves; I would love to have more of these but unfortunately I’ve never come across another one in this style since. This one I bought quite a while back at… well… I think at New Look. I’m not quite sure any more as I don’t even recognise the logo on the tag…

So if anyone knows where you can buy boleros like this one, please let me know – you would make me very happy.

Hi, you look gorgeous in these photos! I wondered if you’ve tried Lindy Bop ( for boleros? Only in black and red at the moment though, sadly! Xxx


Hi Carrie-Ann,

thank you for the tip. I just had a look at them. Their range of dresses as well as the boleros look great. Unfortunately they don’t go up to my size, but I will keep an eye on them.
