Win a Lindy Bop vintage-style dress

Hen party and wedding season brings the best excuse there is to buy new look-at-me summer dresses. And if you’re looking for something flirty, feminine and Fifties-inspired, we may have found the repro brand for you…

Lindy Bop specialise in all of the above and with styles in dozens of colour and print combinations you’ll be spoilt for choice (or may just have to buy a few – you know what they say about having found a good thing…)

To celebrate the start of the spring/summer social calendar, we’ve teamed up with the online boutique to give away one of their best-selling styles – the sleeveless Audrey swing dress.

Inspired film star and style icon Audrey Hepburn, the fully-lined cotton beauty boasts a feminine fit and flare shape, bateau neckline, fitted bodice and matching removable fabric tie.

For your chance to win your very own Audrey (worth £29.99) in the style and size of your choice, simply comment on this post telling us where you’d wear it.

This competition is open to UK residents only and closes at 12 midday Sunday 10 May 2015. The winner will be picked at random and contacted on the email address they use to leave a comment on this blog post. Their details will then be passed on to Lindy Bop to fulfil the prize.
