If there’s a shop I’ve always adored from afar it would definitely be, Cath Kidston. My earliest memory of this beautiful store is from when Nokia collaborated with the brand and released limited edition versions of their 6111 phone, so yes – a long time ago! Over the years I’ve had a number of their products, but I’ve never bought any clothes from them before, to be honest I didn’t really know clothes were available!
However, all of that changed when I walked past their beautiful shop yesterday and spotted a lovely floral dress in the window. As someone who adores all things vintage and especially floral patterns, this is practically my dream place to shop! What’s even better is the products are inspired by actual vintage patterns, so they feel even more authentic! I ended up trying on four (!) of their dresses but, managed to control myself and just buy one.
The dress I chose to buy is slightly different from my usual choices, apart from being blue of course! It has long sleeves , a V neck and a ruched in waist which contrasts with the loose fitted bust. I get a very 1960s boho chic vibe with this, I feel like it’s something Brigitte Bardot would have worn in her heyday and I absolutely love it! It’s also lovely to have one with long sleeves, I have no problem with sleeves – I just rarely seem to find any dresses with them!
At £65 it wasn’t the cheapest dress you’d find, but from the quality you can definitely tell it’s worth it and will last for a long time! This is from their new Spring/Summer Collection and I will definitely be back in there to have a browse! The shop is just so aesthetically pleasing and beautifully set out, I would love to work there! Also, the staff were lovely and very helpful, I felt like they were almost my friends, you really can’t beat the little things.
My dress was wrapped in pretty floral gift paper which I shall definitely be keeping! Before today I’d not even been on their website, I’d not even realized they would have a shop online actually, how silly of me! However, it’s just wonderful and I know I’m going to have to stop myself from buying the whole store!
Out of the four I tried, I was so tempted to buy another, but sadly it was far too revealing on the bust. Therefore, I tried a size up but it was too loose on my shoulders, I’m so happy I had the chance to try it on though.
To sum this post up, if you love the classic vintage style and patterns, Cath Kidston is the shop for you!
