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.

With two weeks to go until Shrove Tuesday, why not invest in the Tala Retro Pancake Kit?
Not strictly traditional as this is geared more to your fat American-style pancake, the kit contains all you need to create a foolproof batch, not least a non-stick lidded pan, allowing you to flip your pancakes without sticking them to the ceiling. Stay cool handles should mean you don't burn yourself either – so even the most inept of cooks can produce an impressive stack of pancakes.
Also included are a batter dispenser and a heart shaped pancake ring for those romantic breakfasts in bed.

More wallpaper… However, Elli Pop's Just Around Midnight wallpaper looks a bit further back in time than some of the recent papers we've highlighted. This wallpaper features a romanticised early-twentieth century scene of couples dancing away into the night, complete with gorgeous gowns, headpieces and fans. The line drawings look a bit Aubrey Beardsley-esque, while the semi pearl effect given by the mica paper adds to the nostalgia of the scene.
The paper also comes with a champagne or jade colour background, although you'd really need to fall in love with it before purchasing as a roll costs £199.
