Victoria Beckham Goes Retro

Categories: Dresses

As you may well know, all of us at FairyGothMother are massive fans of retro style, and we absolutely love these gorgeous pictures of Victoria Beckham in her skin-tight scarlet pencil dress, and pin-up bikini.


Victoria’s ‘Bidart’ dress is £1,443 – our ‘Mayfair’ dress is £89, and available in either scarlet or black, in S (UK 8-10) to XL (UK 14-16).

Victoria herself said, “Whether you’ve got £20 to spend in Top Shop or £2,000 to spend at Gucci, looking good isn’t about money, it’s about style – and style never goes out of fashion”. So pin up those curls, dig out your favourite red lipstick, and indulge yourself without having to spend thousands of pounds with our range of flattering, stretch pencil dresses, fun and flirty circle skirts with massive petticoats, and our Mama Maria bikinis which look like they’re straight out of the Fifties!

Vintage-inspired Polka Dot Outfit Donna Polka Dot Dress Flared Polka Dot Dress Circle Skirt

Vintage-inspired corset £345 (18″-40″), and skirt, £110 (UK 6-26); Donna pencil dress £50 (UK 8-14); Flared Dress £50 (UK 8-16); Circle skirt £50 and petticoat £55 (both one size, will fit up to UK 16).

You don’t have to be as slim as Victoria to pull off her figure-hugging look, as our vintage-inspired polka dot overbust corset and matching pencil skirt will nip in your waist, shape your tummy and emphasise your feminine curves. Accessorise with cream satin gloves and some dainty pearls (both of which are available in our shop) to complete the look. If you’d prefer a dress to separates, our Donna pencil dress has become a best-seller over the last few months, with it’s contrast halter straps and collar, and cute matching polka dot bow which sits just under the bust. Pencil skirts and dresses aren’t the only way to wear polka dots – our halter dress and circle skirt with big, bold white spots look fabulous alone, or with a matching petticoat underneath to make you really stand out! The circle skirts can be made in a variety of colours and fabrics, and we stock petticoats in different colours so you can find the perfect match.


In this recent photo for the US version of Elle magazine, Victoria poses in a high-waisted halter bikini by Diane von Furstenberg, with massive sparkly lust-inducing Nina Ricci platforms.

Our limited edition bikinis by Dutch swimwear designer Mama Maria (pictured below) combine modern fabrics with retro design, so you can carry on looking glamorous on the beach without having to step out in a teeny tiny bikini.

If you’re planning on holidaying somewhere lovely and warm this winter, you’ll be pleased to know that hese halter bikinis are not only available in two delicious-looking ice cream colourways as well as classic black with white polka dot – but also reduced from £175 to £99. Win!
