Lindy Bop Size UK14 (Australian Size 12) New With Tags London Traffic Gilda Dress $50

This is a new with tags Gilda dress from Lindy Bop, in the sought-after London Traffic print. Made from a fully lined 97% cotton 3% elastane, this classic 1950's shirt-style swing dress features a fitted bodice with fabric covered functioning buttons, cap sleeves, wide flare skirt with box pleat detail and side seam pockets, and a concealed side zip. Size 14 UK (US Size 10), which fits as a Size 12 Australian, the size chart says should measure (actual garment) 40.2" bust, 32.7" waist, 41.3" long, 17.5" armhole and 15" cuff. I find the waist on this runs smaller than quoted, at 31" (79cm) so please do take that into account. This is brand new with tags.

This weighs over 600g so will need a larger satchel.

New Voodoo Vixen Size Large Joni Nautical Print Dress $70

This the gorgeous nautical-inspired Joni dress from Voodoo Vixen, in a quality navy blue cotton elastane with a white anchor and ship's wheel print, white scalloped piping along the sweetheart neckline, belt and hem, decorative white covered button on the bodice and side-seam pockets. Size Large, it's about 96cm (37 1/2") on the bust, 82cm
(32") on the waist, and 86cm (33 1/2") long and is new and unworn - the cardboard swing tag itself has gone missing but the plastic loop on the label remains. This does have a small fabric flaw as shown in the close-up shot, but as this is on the rear bottom hemline it would never be noticeable when worn.

This just fits into a 500g satchel.

New With Tags Lindy Bop UK Size 14 (Australian Size 12) Checked Picnic Audrey Dress $65

This is one of my all-time favourite dresses, and one that definitely always gets compliments, even from complete strangers - it's the Picnic Check Audrey from Lindy Bop in the red colourway. It features a fully lined bodice, rear zip, and detachable waist sash, with a gorgeously full 1950's skirt - add a petticoat (not included) to attain the look in the stock photos. Size 14 UK - normally I'd advise going on the waist measurements for most dresses, but in this one it's the bust that seems to run small, perhaps due to the lining. That said, the gingham cotton has zero stretch and this is is best treated as a smallish Australian Size 12, measuring about 94cm (37") on the bust, 78cm (31") on the waist and 105cm (41.5") long.  Brand New With Tags, I bought the wrong size without checking the measurements! One of the best dresses you will own!

I measure this as 78cm (30.75") on the waist which will stretch a little with the ruching, and 109cm long shoulder to hem. This is in excellent, gently used condition with barely any wash fade or wear to the dress. I am including the belt but as you can see it's discoloured (yellowed) over time sadly, and would be best swapped out for a plain black one.

This fits into a 500g satchel.

This is a Size XL to fit US 12/14, Bust 41-42", Waist 33-34" and Hip 44-45", however I felt this ran small (especially on the bust) and more like a Unique Vintage Large or an Australian Size 14. It measures about 100cm on the Bust, 84cm on the waist and 117cm long shoulder to hem, and the polyester fabric has no stretch. The "Dorothy" blue and white in the stock photos is also somewhat misleading - it's far more of a periwinkle blue in real life as shown in my photos of the actual garment. It's brand new with tags and priced far lower than retail.

This fits into a 500g satchel.

Hell Bunny Size XL Tina Red Capri Pants $20

These are the gorgeous and oh-so-comfortable Tina Capri pants from Hell Bunny, in the fire-engine red colourway - a really difficult colour to capture and far more like the stock photo than my shots of the actual garment.

Still fully functional with a tonne of life left in them, and priced at a fraction of their $68 retail cost.

These fit into a 500g satchel.
