Cath Kidston is better known for her cutesy homewares and cabbage rose fabrics than she is her clothing, but this season's capsule collection includes some really sweet dresses. This blue mini caught my eye; with only a small floral trim it's less overtly feminine than some of the other pieces and has a real 60s retro feel. I've teamed it with serious statement shoes and a shiny clutch. The jewelled cameo plays on the whole girly Kidston look, but pokes fun by being so kitsch. Rather than putting it on the dress, I'd pin it into a messy updo for the finishing touch to the outfit.
