Sometimes I wish I'd lived in an era when a woman's wardrobe contained "occasion" dresses. House dresses and cocktail dresses and formal day dresses. Especially "formal day dresses" - there's something about that I really like the sound of.
Here's a lovely formal day dress from Hubba Hubba vintage - who do some gorgeous repro stuff.
What I love about this dress is that up close you can see the fabric has a tiny spot print.
So pretty. And that belted waist and full skirt is to die for.
The Grace dress is £150 from Hubba Hubba Vintage.
