I had a twitter plea to find a gorgeous rockabilly dress (size 14) for under £80, with some shoes in size 7 for £50. She wants to buy a petticoat as well, which tells me she wants a swing style dress. So here are some of my suggestions!
This green gingham dress from Dolly Dagger is £79. I love that green is a slightly more unusual colour. You could make it quite 1950s with white accessories, or you could be a bit more brave and wear a clashing colour like purple.
If you were feeling a bit more brave, I own a dress in this tropical print and I love it. This dress is from Collectif and costs £60.
If you want a more simple option, you could try this swing dress from Lady K, which costs £45. You could take a slightly nautical theme and have red accesories, or white for a more vintage look.
If you did want to embrace a nautical look, you could try this dress from Sirens and Starlets, which is a bargain £24.99
This one is slightly over budget at £99, but would celebrate the theme of the day! It is Vivien of Holloway.
A more classic rockabilly look would be this Sirens and Starlets dress for £29.99. Red or blue accessories would really pop.
If you wanted a more vintage look, like 1940s style dress is from 20th century foxy and costs £85.
As for shoes, I'm a fan of comfort, and tend to always look to Clarks, so here are my current favourites that come in on budget!
These are £54.99
These nude heels are £49.99
These red patent shoes are £39.99 and look pretty comfortable!
I own these ones, and they currently have 30% off, making them £34.99
These red ones are also in the sale, making them £34.99
If you wanted a more comfortable and safe option I'd go with a small wedge like these. These cost £34.99 in the sale.
