1930s Beach Dress

Contrary to how it must look, with it being rare that you will ever see me in a hat - I actually really love wearing hats! My only problem is that its not often that I am able to find a hat that I like and you would be surprised how much time I actually spend online looking at hats.

Dramatic hats with a wide brim are a favorite of mine, and I would wear them more often if only I could figure out how to keep them from flying off my head. I especially love hats from the 40s and 50s and spent this weekend pawing through hats in antique shops with disappointing results, so I was pretty pleased when I came across this one in Myer!

This elegant Collectif maxi dress is reminiscent of 1930s beach wear and was extremely glamorous to wear for a walk along the promenade. The fit of the dress is nice and loose with light flowing fabric and in summer it would be perfect to pop on over a swimsuit and lounge by the pool - cocktail in hand of course.

Hat - Myer
Dress - Collectif

  3. If you can figure out that hat thing, let me know! You look so effortlessly glamorous and dear me, your figure is to die for! Stunning x

  4. Utterly and completely ravishing - I really mean it. This beach perfect outfit looks like a million, nay, a billion dollars on you, sweet dear.

  7. Woot woooooo looking good! I love hats too! Have you tried good old hat pins just like the ladies of old wore? You thread it through the hat, catch the pin a little through your hair then back through the hat (in theory not stabbing yourself in the process).

  8. You look like such a dream! I've been quite wearied with my vintage wardrobe of late and this style is exactly where I'd love to take my aesthetic. If only!

  9. This dress is gorgeous on you! I have a similar problem with hats. Before I got into vintage style I wore hats quite often. But vintage hats is a whole other world!! I don't think I know how to wear them at all...

  10. You look absolutely divine! I really want to start wearing hats like this, but I have a hard time styling them, and then again getting them to stay on is a trick too!

  11. Ever since you posted these photos I have been looking for that dress - it's been out of stock everywhere in my size. But TODAY is a good day because I just found it on Ebay and snapped it up! I hope it looks half as good on me as it does on you here... xx
