Sunny Side Smile Dress from Bettie Page Clothing


For undeniably summery retro looks, the fifties is always a favourite decade in fashion inspiration. Thanks to their penchant for youthful and feminine frocks, Bettie Page Clothing often get it spot on, with items like this Sunny Side Smile Dress.

The structure is simple but effective, with a thick strapped top and full skirt to balance. The inclusion of a waist-cinching belt and the notched collar detail add some cute detailing, along with the almost kitschy sunflower print throughout.

It's now available online from ModCloth for $123.99.

eBay watch: Midcentury split-level side table


We're all for affordable midcentury design, which this split-level side table is right now.

The picture says it all really, a late 50s / early 60s table that's laid out over two levels, offering a bit of midcentury cool to your living room.

Sadly, no details of materials or designer, but there is a condition report, which says it has 'slight wear' (a couple of faded round water stains, a small tear in the plate framing), but overall, sounds fine. Just £9 right now. Oh yes, it does come apart for shipping.
