    I find that 50s style dresses lend themselves well to petticoats, and they’re great for weddings and summer nights out. I think you need a lot of confidence to pull them off though. :) You look brilliant in yours – confidence shouldn’t be an issue :D

    OO! I love it! Petticoats are hard to wear, but so fun to have aren’t they? The outfit in these pics is great.
