I’m sure you’ve seen famous – and not so famous – pin ups and vintage enthusiasts on social media wear a houndstooth dress inspired by the 1940s. The Jackson is a flared dress from Hell Bunny, and it has become a Fall/Winter essential in my daily looks.
I decided to buy this 1940s inspired dress on TopVintage. My first purchase there has been very successful and I even bought a Splendette bangle to match my outfits with, so no doubt I’ll order from them more often! I dress pin up/vintage inspired the whole week, but when I have to go to work I prefer to dress more “office friendly”. The Jackson dress is perfect for those who want a versatile vintage inspired look that you can wear to the office or even on the weekends. Its details include a black velvet collar and a matching belt.
I paired the Jackson dress with a Banned Clothing petticoat, a vintage bag that belonged to my grandma and BAIT Footwear heels. Photographer Jorge Casares took lovely photos in Mataró, a city near Barcelona.
In terms of sizing, the Jackson dress follows Hell Bunny’s regular size guide. As usual I am between sizes and opted for a medium. Although it is a bit loose on the sleeves, the waistline fits well.
I’m wearing a pair of earrings from Desperate Beatnik, one of my favorite Etsy shops!
