Fashioneaster (Part Two)

This is the ideal dress for a fashion-loving Easter bunny. Loose-fitting (perfect for hiding those chocolate-eating bulges) and colour-blocking with the illusion of a drop-waist, it’s the perfect 2013 update on a 1920s dress. But the best bit by far is the bright coral belt (and you know how much we love coral). It is in fact a fake belt. Only visible from the front, it most cleverly, leaves an inch or two either side, making you look like you have a very small waist. I love this dress. I’ve tried it on and would have bought it, but for the fact that I am on a massive no-clothes-buying drive. I tell you. It’s difficult. I’ve already screwed up once with two navy jumpers, a coral jumper (I told you I love coral) and a pair of jeans from Gap. But, all of that came to under £100 and I could hardly turn a bargain like that down, could I?

BTW. The 1920s will be big this year. HUGE in fact, with the release of Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby on the 17thMay. But, more from us, on that, to come.

And, finally. Because I think of the Easter Bunny as being a bit like the White Rabbit and therefore being a bit bonkers in an Alice in Wonderland kind of way, I’ve chosen some shoes. I can’t stop thinking about these shoes. They’re a bit Mad Men, a little Jolie Laide, but they grow on you. You wouldn’t wear them with this dress (that would be too White Rabbit bonkers), but you could wear them with skirts, other dresses and jeans. Not available until the end of April, but you can pre-order the black and white pair from Browns right now.
