heather and i had been dreaming up a 1960’s photoshoot for some time and we knew we had to make it happen when we saw the summer topshop collection that was straight out of my 60’s dream – crop tops, gingham, wiggle dresses and pixie pants.

we pulled three looks for this shoot and this dress was one of the rare occasions when it actually looked better on the body than on the hanger. i am not usually a fan of fitted all over but somehow with this dress, it just worked. i love the contrast of the form fitting silhouette with the high neck and below the knee hemline. it was definitely sexy but still understated. feelin pretty joan from mad men in this look.

stay tuned for the next two topshop shoots! are you a fan of the fitted dress look?
