Taking a pinch of inspiration from vintage fashion, particularly the 1950's and re-creating the classic hourglass silhouette in a colourful and kitsch form. With designs in bright flamingo prints, colourful liquorice allsorts and playful polka dots they've certainly given vintage style a colourful modern styling.

All of Silly Old Sea Dog's delightful frocks, skirts and home wares are hand crafted in Cornwall, adding a touch of British styling to complete the look.

Since launching the label their designs have gone down a storm and it's no surprise, with new designs and a plus size range just about to launch we're certain that they'll become a firm favourite.
