The Tuesday before heading off to Sri Lanka I was invited to Beyond Retro in Dalston to search for my dream vintage dress. It was most definitely a Tuesday morning well spent! It didn’t take long to find my dream vintage dress as I think I’m pretty much in love with all the dresses in Beyond Retro. In the end I decided to go with this dress as I felt it would do perfectly as a day and evening dress in Sri Lanka – essential for the packing light requirement (which I may or may not have been successful at…) The dress was also perfectly light for the incredibly hot days which I was only able to cope with by going in the sea approximately every 5 minutes, eating copious amounts of ice cream and saying ‘this must be the hottest day EVER’ to my boyfriend about 230 times a day.
You could be in with the chance of winning £250 Beyond Retro vouchers (wow-sers) and an overnight stay for you and a friend at The Hoxton, Shoreditch.
