Tu at Sainsbury’s Vintage Style Dress

Tu at Sainsburys Vintage Style dress  worn with vintage accessories by Kate BeavisToday I’m wearing a new dress by Tu at Sainsburys which has a real vintage vibe. Infact they have a few dresses in stock right now that are great modern versions of a classic style. And as you know I like to mix my vintage with modern, and this is a great style to do this with.

I chose this navy dress with fun white flowers on (it also comes in red) which costs £20. It is a lightweight cotton feel viscose and is made in India. It comes with a matching tie belt which I am never a fan of, they generally are unflattering so prefer to add my own belts. I have a size 12 but really should have bought a 10. They have no fitting rooms so I guessed, but I would say the fit is quite generous.

This one I got for Christmas from the family and was bought from a local vintage shop called No 38 Vintage Emporium in Newport Pagnell. The heavy brass bangle is from the 1970s and has a William Morris design on.

I love my red Lotta from Sweden clogs; they are so comfy and are a perfect match with everything from a 1970s maxi dress to my 1950s day dresses. The blue belt was also from a charity shop.
