This 40s Ella Swing Dress is designed in collaboration with no one less than the lovely Miss Victory Violet!

Beautiful Ella recently visited our TopVintage headquarters, so we had the opportunity to ask her about her inspiration for this key item of the Librarian Girl Collection! She told us she combined all the special details from real vintage dresses with the typical longer hem lines from the 1940s and 1950s and all of that in stunning, warm colours. The result are two super special dresses, that as a true vintage lover, cannot miss in your dress-collection! This amazing dress features a stunning fitted top with a playful, scalloped, tartan Peter Pan collar, cute bow straps, puffed half sleeves with tartan fold-overs and subtle pleats at the bust. The waist will be perfectly emphasized by the tartan belt that in contrast with the long swing skirt a classic vintage silhouette creates. Made from a firm yet supple, raspberry pink fabric with a light stretch and finished off with cream coloured and dark blue tartan details. Feel classy, sophisticated, feminine but above all (B)Ella when wearing this beauty!

Liebe, Liebe, Liebe

Das Kleid ist ein Träumchen, was soll ich mehr sagen?!? Es passt perfekt, die Größenangaben in der Tabelle sind genau und sehr hilfreich. Die Stoffqualität ist hervorragend, der Stoff hat eine schwere Qualität, also gut geeignet für die kalte Jahreszeit (mit einem Jäckchen).
Mit einem Petticoat verwandelt sich das Kleid in einen Vintage-Traum, einfach ganz zauberhaft...ich konnte mich kaum von meinem Spiegelbild trennen und muss jetzt ganz dringend Vintage-Frisuren üben ;-)
Das Päckchen kam wie immer schnell und gut verpackt, vielen Dank!

Autumnal Glamour

I bought this dress as well as the Ella Raspberry dress (I couldn't help myself!). I bought the size L (UK 14-16). If it helps, my measurements are 39-31-42" and I'm 5'10" tall (1.84m). The dresses fit like a glove; so much so they look like they were made for me. I'm delighted! Both are stunning but I've got to say, the Emerald green / autumnal plaid is my favourite. The colours are rich, and striking. I also paired with the shoes MVV wears in the photo (Miss L Fire 'Starlet' - not stocked on Top Vintage). I also bought the Vixen 'Ella Bow' Emerald green long sleeved shrug for wear when it gets a bit nippy. I wasn't sure on the buttons based on the photos, but they look good in reality. I also love that there are no cheap belt hooks too. Overall I'm super happy. The quality is as good as the design. Thanks Miss Candyfloss & Top Vintage!

Prachtige miss Candyfloss

Prachtige jurk als altijd. Alleen het riempje is veel te ruim, ik moet er 2 gaatjes bijmaken. Nu staat het lubberig. Misschien een XL riempje ontvangen?

Beste Simone, wat vervelend dat het riempje te groot is, mijn excuses hiervoor! Ik zal vandaag nog contact met je opnemen om dit samen met je op te lossen.


And the winner is....

dieses wunderschöne Kleid. Es sitzt perfekt und ist ein absoluter Hingucker. Toll auch die Kombination mit dem Kragen.

Perfection! So in love.

I am so in love with my Ella swing dress in raspberry! The details are perfect and the cut is fantastic. The quality of this dress is outstanding - it's made to last. I get so many lovely compliments when I wear it! Miss Candyfloss never disappoint! Can't wait to add more of their gorgeous dresses to my collection!
