Shhh-shoo baby, shoo, shoo!

Emmy Design are a brand known for their high quality vintage reproduction designs that feature a beautiful range of clothes from the thirties to the sixties. I was recently asked to review a piece from their  SS16 collection! The Lemon Shoo Shoo dress and bolero set was inspired by a 1940s dress from the designers private collection and named after the Andrews Sisters song Shoo Shoo Baby. I love bolero sets for the way that you are getting two dresses in one and depending on how they are styled you can put together an outfit that is more serious work friendly and still fine to wear to the beach.

This set is made of crinkle and crease resistant bengaline and after a long car trip and walking around all day in the Shoo Shoo dress I was pleasantly surprised that the fabric stayed clear of any frustrating creasing and looked pristine all day long. The bolero was great for keeping my back and shoulders protected from the sun and the fabric was light enough to keep me from over heating in our harsh climate, this is definitely the dress you are going to want to pack if you are heading on holiday somewhere sunny and fabulous!

Emmy Design use German/Scandinavian sizing so it is important to measure yourself and consult the size chart on their website to work out your size. I am wearing a size 36 and found that the sizing runs true to size and the fit to be extremely comfortable and easy to move in. An especially great dress if you want to go swing dancing!

  1. Pastel yellow looks so pretty on you :) If any blondes reading thought yellow was not for them, I hope this serves to prove them wrong! Super cute look - and I love a matching bolero too! x

  2. Fabulous look! I love the dress, and a matching bolero is always nice to have on hand. I'm digging the yellow/orange/blue color combo, they work really well together.

  4. I also love dress and bolero sets! They are so much fun and look so well put together! I love Emmy Design. I've been following them on Etsy staking one of their dresses. Maybe one day I will be able to buy something by them <3 Love this shade of yellow on you by the way! So pretty!

  5. I have heard a lot of good things about Emmy and have been admiring their colour palettes in particular - this shade of yellow is lemon perfection on you! So nice to have a matching jacket, it really smartens things up doesn't it?

  6. Super lovely outfit! I'm wild about the mix of gentle butter yellow and grass green here. I wish I had garments in either colour (I don't - though I do have a Brooks Brothers shirt in that shade of yellow) so that I could put together a look inspired by this outfit. Definitely one for the inspiration file.

    Big hugs & happy April wishes,

  8. That dress is so adorable with the matching bolero! I don't think I actually own any two pieces but I've always loved the look of them, and yellow is so your colour! Maybe one day I'll find the right two piece for me and never look back.

  12. The lines for this dress is so beautiful and I love the fact that it's wrinkle free! Yay to a quick and fuss-free way to get ready. I'm absolutely smitten with this shade of lemon yellow (which is obviously MY colour of the month), it looks really good on you! x G
