I'm a big fan of Hell Bunny.
I don't think there's been one Hell Bunny dress I've tried on that I haven't loved. This dress is no exception. New for Hell Bunny's spring/summer 2014 line, I picked this up at Modcloth back in February with a coupon code. :)
The combination of the broad collar, the double breasted bodice, the large self belt, the circle skirt silhouette, and the navy with white polka dot print all work together to make this the definitive 1950's dress! The picture collar on this dress beautifully frames the face and the stark white color of the collar seems to add a glow to the skin! Also, the collar features a dainty crocheted scalloped edging to it that I wasn't expecting. Another feature of this dress that I love is that this dress has full sleeves. It can be hard to move around in sometimes because of the sleeves but it is such a unique find to see sleeves on reproduction retro style dresses that to me it's fully worth the slight inconvenience. The dress is a medium to heavy weight cotton material which helps give the dress a nice shape to it even without a crinoline. There is a back zipper, and two out of four of the buttons in the front of this dress are fully functioning. I'm glad that not all the buttons are fully functioning so that you have the look without all the fussiness. As is my usual, I ordered this dress in large which proved to be a great fit for my 38-31-38, 5'3" frame.
