We’re dreaming of Greece with this glowing, opal blue shift dress. It is beautifully made and fully lined to hold the perfect 1960s silhouette. She speaks class with simple turquoise linen adorned with thick white embroidery and beads on the chest. Full zip up the back to help you slink in.

This dress once belonged to fashionista and intrepid traveller, the late Stella Veitch. Stella was known for her taste for well made, fashionable clothing and her independence as a single woman travelling the globe during a time when it was uncommon for women to do so. We love this dress and the story it tells, imagining it neatly folded in a suitcase journeying through 1960s Africa and the Middle East.
