Polka Dot Dogs from Emma Bridgewater

Emma Bridgewater is the last word in retro ceramics. Her nostalgic patterns, ranging from hearts and flowers to Union Jacks and wildlife, have adorned everything from crockery, big and small, to AGAs.

This set of Polka Dot Dogs are the perfect addition for the Bridgewater collector who thinks they have everything. Inspired by the vintage porcelain spaniels you probably remember from your grandmother's mantlepiece back in the day, these perky puppies are covered in Emma's signature polka dot pattern. The canine companions stand at just under a foot high, perfect for perching on your fireplace or, if you're lucky enough, to match your AGA.

Also available in letter print. The pair are £495 exclusively from Liberty. See the website for more details.

New Vintage Monet Print Prom Dress from Oasis


Oasis do a retro-style dress better than most and their latest New Vintage summer collection is no exception.

There are five dresses in the range including this Monet Print Prom Dress; a show-stopping floral silk number with a single strap and ruched bandeau body. The skirt is classic prom-dress with a nipped-in waist and full skirt with net underlay.

At £150, the dress is at the top end of the Oasis price spectrum but the romantic style won't date so should carry it through for many seasons to come. The range also includes fabric bags and scarves in similarly nostalgic prints.
