’50s style tea towel from H&M

Elde tea towel

It's a classy piece of design which looks like it would be more at home on the wall than in the kitchen but in fact this '50s style tea towel is from H&M

Designer Anna Karin-Elde has depicted two ceramics, drawn in a sketchy fifties style. The simple design is then printed onto 100% organic cotton. 

You'd expect H&M to be cheap but in fact this design is on sale so it's even more of a bargain, costing just £3.49.

Printed Floral Dress from George at Asda


Floral prints have become a perennial choice of retro print, providing a source of inspiration for a variety of twentieth century eras. This Printed Floral Dress from George at Asda uses a sixties interpretation to provide a simple and stylish Spring dress.

The dress structure has an instantly early sixties feel, thanks to the modernised fifties elements like a more structural circle skirt, capped sleeves and a high waistline. The colour palette provides a contrast to the extreme femininity of floral print, avoiding obvious pinks and reds.

Get it from Asda now for a surprisingly thrifty £18.
