Brigitte Squirrel Dress from Carousel

Hi dolls,

My dress from Carousel arrived!! I nearly kissed the post man!

Carousel is a vintage inspired clothing and accessories store based in Dublin, Ireland. For those who don’t live nearby, thank goodness they also have an online store:

Carousel’s style is notably distinctive and as indicated on their website, it ‘‘mixes a blend of feminine, romantic prints with effortless, wearable fashion.’’ In their shop, you will find retro inspired clothing items from their own brand called Circus, and items from other vintage inspired brands, as well as authentic vintage apparel ranging from the 1950s - 1970s.

Shopping at Carousel, you will notice silhouettes of the past, pussy bows, peter pan collars, and polka dots. Talk about classy! 

Ciao bambole,

Il mio vestito di Carousel è arrivato finalmente! Ho quasi baciato il postino.

Carousel è un negozio che si trova a Dublino, specializzato in abiti ed accessori vintage. Vendono sia capi vintage genuini (degli anni 50 fino agli anni 70) che capi ispirati al vintage, come della loro collezione, Circus. Il loro stile è molto femminile, romantico e di classe. Per noi che non abitiamo in Irlanda, per fortuna hanno un negozio online:

The dress I’m wearing is the Brigitte Squirrel dress (available here)
 from Carousel’s own collection, Circus. 
Brigitte dress: c/o Carousel
Shoes: Porta Portese, Rome
Hair flower: Brigitte Bijoux
Bag: vintage from mercato monti
My mother ruining my photo shoot!! ;) <3
Lo and behold, did you notice there are squirrels and hearts on this dress?
Avete notato che ci sono sia scoiattoli che cuoricini sul vestito?

Questo vestito 'Brigitte' è il tipo di vestito che sta bene a tutte, e l'ho trovato comodissimo. Se sei una donna nostalgica, in cerca di un abbigliamento giocoso e charmant, recativi al negozio di Carousel, dove pure i vestiti hanno nomi retrò (Ava, Vivien, Gina...)!

I’m so pleased with my Brigitte Dress. The quality is excellent. It’s playful, graceful, and flattering. Carousel highlights the importance of looking good and feeling good. Indeed, this is the kind of  dress you can wear all day long, whether sitting down or prancing about. Comfortable and classy….who’d ever think they’d go together?? :)

If you’re a nostalgic lady, seeking charming and timeless attire, take a look at Carousel’s collection, where even the dresses have vintage names (Ava, Loretta, Twiggy, Joan etc.)! You’ll find a thing (or two, or three…) that will make your heart flutter.
