Remember when I bought a retro look dress a while ago. And that I really didn’t like it at all? I did wear it only with for that shoot and never again.
I really like the retro style, but this dress didn’t suit me at all. Just too short, or maybe the colors. I don’t know but I didn’t feel myself in it at all. Now I show you a retro look dress again, but I feel very good in this one. And what the difference is, I don’t know. Probably because it is slightly longer. This retro look dress is second-hand and is from King Louie, a brand of which I buy many pre-loved dresses. Great fit, excellent quality and beautiful prints and colors. This is not a sponsored post, if only. I’m just a fan of this brand.
Why is this a retro look dress
The print appealed to me the most, somewhat psychedelically. You know, when you have a mushroom to many…..just kidding, I really wouldn’t know! But you probably understand what kind of print I mean. Well that psychedelic comes from the 70s and that is retro again. Going back to a certain time to design new, for example, fashion. That is what we call retro.
How I wear my retro look dress
It was a no brainer to wear this dress with a long cardigan and well fitted boots. That, for me, gives this look a 70s feel. A long necklace to break the print a bit and a few plastic brown bracelets. These dresses are so easy to wear, so stretchy and so easy to style. And the fit is so perfect. Love to wear it with sandals too. That is the only downside of summer, that I can’t wear boots!
I would really appreciate it if you would share my outfit on Pinterest! Just hoover over the photo!

Nancy, I love the retro style. And yes, I GET the one mushroom too many…! Haha! We of a certain era know ALL about that. And this look is very reminiscent. It looks great with the neutral boots and sweater, too.
Have a lovely Easter weekend,
Haha, I never tried them! hahaha. Thanks Darlene. Have a good Easter weekend!
You retro dress looks lovely on you and I love the way you styled it with the long cardigan and boots! happy easter, Nancy!
Thanks Yvonne, Happy Easter weekend!
The print is great Nancy. I prefer the colours on this dress to the regular black and white retro colour. Have a great Easter weekend xx
Thanks Laurie! Enjoy your Easter weekend!
I’ve found that with dresses it’s more the feeling they give you when you wear them, rather than what they look like! This one looks great Nancy particularly with the long cardi.
I agree with you! Thanks Gail!
It is perfect with the long cardigan and boots. I really like the retro style. X
Thank you very much Hilda! Enjoy your Easter weekend!
I am so glad you liked my look last week Nancy! Thank you!
Love your dress and totally agree the print is captivating and definitely gives it a retro feel – you wear it very well!
I LOVE that dress, Nancy! Send it to me if you tire of it! I love the colours, the print, and the fit on you is amazing. Just beautiful. I never find things that fit me this nicely in second hand stores, but I never stop looking! xx
I will! Ha ha, not! Ha ha. But thank you very much!
That is an awesome print, Nancy! Very mushroom-y. hahaha. And I love this style dress on you. And with tall boots. So good! Have a wonderful weekend, my friend!
Thanks Shelbee, enjoy your Easter weekend!
What a terrific find Nancy! I love the print and the long cardigan is perfect with it. Thanks for the link up!
It looks amazing on you, I love it! I like how you styled it too! Those boots look fabulous with it!
I can see why you love this dress Nancy!! And I rechecked out the other one you haven’t worn. I have a shirt dress that’s a little too short, and I tend to wear it more as a duster. It just feels better that way!!
I havn’t tried that but I can! Thanks Jodie!
🙂 Thank you for the possibility of linking to your website!
I’ve linked to this post on my website as well.
Have a very HAPPY Friday!
Thank you very much! That’s wonderful!
Looks really goo d to me Nancy, lovely necklace too – a real statement piece. Jacqui Mummabstylish

Ha ha ha, didn’t think of that at all!
That dress is so flattering on you! Love the print and retro vibe!

This dress looks so good on you! Have a lovely weekend.
Thanks Gemma! Enjoy your weekend! It will be a sunny back holiday again! That tradition has broke down now!
Love the dress on you Nancy, fits like a dream! I love all of the brown and neutral tones in it.
You made me laugh about the mushrooms! haha
Have a great weekend!
Ha ha, oh you know what I mean! Ha ha, happy weekend Jess!
It’s funny how your body language just shows how happy you are with this dress compared to the other retro one you have shown on your blog. I just love how you have combined it with your lovely long cardigan and these cool boots. I just adore the necklace! Wishing you a sunny Easter weekend! Love, Lieske
Can you tell us? Ha ha, that’s great! Happy Easter weekend Lieske!
Loving this dress on you Nancy, I love retro dresses.
Isn’t it funny how just a few inches can make such a huge difference with a dress? I’m at the point where my hemlines are getting much lower, and I’m totally ok with that. It’s all about feeling comfortable—and you definitely look like you feel great in this dress!

Yes it does, if this dress would be a bit shorter, then I wouldn’t love it as much as I do now.
This retro style dress really suits you very well, Nancy! I agree it’s more you than the other dress. The minute I saw the dress I knew it was King Louie! I have a KL dress in a similar style and print, but with different colours. Must dig it out and wear it again. I love how you styled it with those boots! I’m forever wearing boots, if not long boots, then ankle boots, and every year I’ve to make a switch in my head when Summer rolls along and I can’t wear them anymore … xxx
Ha ha, yes I know. I love boots and ankle boots. I never wear shoes actual in winter. And I do love sandals but I will miss my boots! Enjoy the Easter weekend Ann!
Nancy you look amazing in this retrostyle dress 🙂
Nancy I think the print is very retro and the dress is very contemporary/ Above all it looks amazing on you as always!
much love Ashley x
The retro dress is awesome! laurensparks.net
Thank you very much!
I love the retro feel to that dress! Glad you found one that you love!
Hi Nancy! I love how you’ve styled this dress with a long cardigan! It’s perfect with the boots as well. You have such a good eye to be able to find great second hand treasures! I haven’t had much luck so far, but I’ll keep trying! I hope you have a great weekend…thanks for the linkup!
Oh why haven t you? Can t you find the items you love? Keep trying, its worth it! Happy Easter Sunday!
This looks great! I love vintage clothes and I think this is a really nice way to style this dress! Well done!
Thanks Claudia. Happy Easter Sunday!
The print is so cool and I love the dress styled with those boots and the long cardigan. Happy weekend Nancy! xo
Thanks Debbie! Happy Easter Sunday!
I know what you mean about feeling good in one dress and not in another for whatever reason. The long cardigan looks great with it and I’m sure it will look good with sandals.
Yes cant wait to wear it with sandals! Happy Easter Sunday!
That is a beautiful retro dress. It looks lovely on you! The print is delicious. I really like how you paired it with a long cardi and boots. Perfect spring styling. You look gorgeous!
Happy Easter Weekend!
Thank you very much dear! Happy Easter Sunday!
Very pretty dress and the colors are wonderful on you. I really like the boots with it as well!
Ooh, this dress is great on you! The print is like op art, very 70s! And I love it with the simple, cream cardigan and the boots.
These gardens where you often shoot, is this at your home??
Yes it is. Because it is to tyring for me to shoot somewhere else.
I love how you styled it with the modern boots and accessories. It’s a fun print, but I know how those retro prints can be off-putting to some. Not me! I love it!
