Purple frocks & Picnic baskets!



Big news! The latest batch of Heyday Fleur dresses are out and they're pretty fab! I'm modelling the 'Lilac Heaven' for you today, along with this rather snazzy picnic basket! First, let me show you the dress.



All the usual Fleur features - wrap style with rounded pockets (pockets and neckline trimmed with lilac bias binding) and a waist tie, authentic 40s length! The button at the back is a purple flower.



I hope you'll all agree it's really pretty! Also newly released are the Henri Fleur dress, which is beige with Eiffel Towers and the Sweetheart Fleur, which are both gorgeous!

Modelled by lovely Kitten von Mew and Luna Nightingale


And this brilliant Linea picnic basket with its very 60s/70s cotton print, which was sent to me by House of Fraser made the perfect shoot prop!


I have always, always wanted a proper picnic hamper - I only wish I had had this in time for the Chap Olympics and the other summer fun... as I type, the rain is lashing my windows (and I even had to dodge showers to take these photos). They sadly seem to be out of stock online but available in some of the House of Fraser shops if you check the stock.


Check out the new Fleurs on Heyday and let me know your favourite!

  1. Grah I really want a Fleur dress - you always make it look so good and all the prints are super cute!! Ps. That picnic hamper is amazing - Living in Sydney I probably get more use out of it! But forget it, once I move to London I do not expect to get much sun :(

  3. Beautiful! I love all of it, the dress, the blanket, and the picnic basket. I think the Fleur wrap dress in English Rose on Black is my favorite!

  4. I am head-over-heels in love with all three of the new fabrics!!! I'm saving all of my pennies right now for an upcoming holiday for the mister and I this year in the fall or else I'd be pouncing on at least one of them. Hopefully later in the year or 2015 (or, you know, if Santa Claus is reading this and wants to leave one under the tree, that would be splendid, too! :)).
