I own a large amount of patterned vintage fabric so when I see faux-retro prints on the high street I'm often disappointed but this £59 Principles dress feels very authentic; the '50s style print is reminiscent of designs by textile goddess Lucienne Day. Part of their 'Modernist' collection it reminds me of Tippi Hedren in 'The Birds', the shape is fabulous with the belt giving just the right amount of curve. I would love to be a glacial Hitchcock blonde, if it weren't for my sallow complexion and mahogany hair.
