Let’s get Tilly

May 16, 2011 § Leave a comment

One of Motel Vintage’s signature styles is the Tilly Dress. A forerunner in lines of years and seasons gone past, we still can’t get enough!! Remade from luxurious vintage mens shirts, their shape seems to glide with the times enabling plenty of looks all in one dress. Peter pan collars and nipped in waists!! What more could a girl need in a daytime dress!?.

A checked Tilly would look great for a 90’s Seattle Grunge look, especially in the darker colours. Add killer heels and fishnets to grunge up your Tilly.  Whereas the lighter, pale textiles work really well for a Darling Lolita outfit. Adorable with long socks and box handbags! Striped Tilly’s always look super vintage when worn with leather brogues and a leather briefcase. Why not be daring and try a pair of retro glasses too! Super geek chic, we love it! If you delve deep enough in the vintage treasure chest, you’re sure to find an abstract retro print that Summer would have a hot Hawaiian flush at the thought of! Phew…. I hope you’ve been taking notes ladies…

Here’s some ideas of how you could wear your Tilly Dress!


We love them all. Find yours today at
