Featured image Dolly and Dotty black and white swing dress - blog

A few days ago, I received a beautiful dress of retro brand Dolly and Dotty*. A very classic black and white striped swing dress. Obviously I wanted to take a stroll in this dress. Preferably a vintage, glamour stroll on a very casual day. This dress was too beautiful for an ordinary selfie. No, this dress deserved much more than that. So with my co-creative partners in crime & photographers Fleurtje Bloem & Esther Schaafsma, I decided to give this dress what it deserved. A full-blown vintage glamour photoshoot on a casual, yet stormy day. Curious about the pictures and a discount code so you can stroll around in your own Dolly and Dotty dress?
