This dress (£28) caught my eye this morning as I was walking past Dorothy Perkins, and it's safe to say looks much better in real life than it does in photos.

It looks a bit straight in photos, but actually has a lovely wiggle dress feel in reality. If your favourite part of your body is your waist, a dress like this will cinch everything in, giving you Marilyn-esque curves.

This is a really amazing find if you like that retro pin-up style but can't stretch to the £80+ price tags of most reproduction vintage dresses. I'm heading back to try this on after work - with retro curls and a hibiscus in the hair, it'd be a perfect modern find for any vintage loving girl!
