[HOLIDAY STYLE BLOG] Lindy Bop Plaids

Brandy (left) and Angela (right) looking adorable in Lindy Bop!

Plaid is such a winter staple print.  This year plaids are especially popular as 90s style plaid flannels are making a big comeback.  The retro brand Lindy Bop has some awesome plaid dresses that are perfect for the season whether you live in a warmer climate or are out in colder parts of the world. 

If you are unfamiliar with Lindy Bop, they are a UK based retro modern brand.  Their sizing is UK sizing (which is different than US sizing, so I highly recommend checking their size chart and measuring yourself before ordering). 

DRESSES: 
Links below are to special offers where these dresses are now only $27!  Regular price $67!

Brandy is wearing the Lindy Bop Lana dress in Blue check 
size 5X  (which is roughly a US 22, but be sure to check their size chart!  This dress fits more like a 22/24)
Navy blue tights are by Sonsee (an awesome plus size hosiery brand from Australia).
Fuzzy jacket was thrifted (she had it in her closet and it was perfect for this look).
Belt - WalMart.

Angela is wearing the Lindy Bop Anna dress in Green check . 
size 4X (which is roughly a US 18/20, but be sure to check their size chart!  This dress runs small in the bust!)
Angela is also wearing a red Malco Modes crinoline (size XL) to give her skirt more volume.
This crinoline is on sale, right now, for just $29! (normal price $35)
The cute red sinny belt comes with the dress.
Angela's boots were already in her closet when we came to shoot this look (and were perfect for her country Christmas look).

______________________________

What I love most about Lindy Bop's dresses is that they suit so many different styles and body types!
Both of these lovely ladies have a love for retro modern clothing but their personal styles are quite different. 

Brandy has vibrant teal blue/green hair and a smile that sparkles.  She is a mother of three, a manager at a beauty supply store and loves spending time with her family and friends.  She is very involved in her community in Wilmington, California.  Her style is retro modern, fun and colorful.  She is the queen of discount/thrift shopping and knows where to find all of the best deals. 

We went up to Big Bear Lake to shoot fashion in the snow because it's still so warm here in Los Angeles.  The Lana dress is thick enough for the season and the addition of her fuzzy jacket made this look really season appropriate. 

At 5'6, the Lana dress hits below the knee on Brandy.  The belt that came with the dress was too small (and frankly, not the best construction, because a button popped off of it before I could even try it on her).  The fit and flare cut are exactly what Brandy likes to wear! This material has a bit of stretch and this cut suits a variety of body types because the waist isn't too high or too low. 





So adorable!




______________________________

Angela is the proud Mom of two horses--Slim (left) and Ruby (right)--two dogs and a lovey cat that I adore cuddling up with when I go visit her.  Her horses live in her backyard and she keeps a very regular schedule to care for them every day.  Her animals are very affectionate and love her as much as she loves them!

Angela lives in a very "country" area called Norco, California.  It reminds me a lot of where I grew up.  She has a passion for all things vintage and has an awesome collection of vintage houseware items from all different eras.  Her style is retro/modern with some punk around the edges (this retro cutie loves Green Day).  She is also a vegan and a very spiritual person who has an eclectic group of friends from different faiths. 

Angela loves Lindy Bop and has a few of their dresses in her closet (which is awesome because it's always great to meet someone who is passionate about a brand I want to share in my blog).

The Anna dress seemed like a great fit for her with the Christmas-y red/green plaid print and red skinny belt. 
The button-up bodice was unfortunately no match for Angela's bust and it kept popping open despite our best efforts to keep it closed. 
So, be certain to SIZE UP when ordering this dress (she normally wears a 4X in Lindy Bop and the 5X would have suited her much better). 

This dress is a thin cotton with no stretch, which is ideal for indoor events or warmer climates.  The Malco Modes crinoline gave the skirt more volume, but it would look equally cute without the crinoline and paired with some solid tights or leggings and a cardigan. 

At 5'7, the Anna dress hits right below the knee on Angela. 





Slim kept grabbing the skirt of Angela's dress and pulling it up/letting it go and then looking into the camera!  It was the cutest thing I've ever seen in my life!  He really understood the pinup vibe we were going for (and I'm glad that Angela wore shapewear under her dress or she would have been flashing her neighbors.  lol).
