Meet Ophelia.. she is an absolutely STUNNING and truly rare early 1980s Laura Ashley bo peep era dress, this time in a midi length. How on earth I have managed to snag another of these treasures is quite frankly beyond me, but here we are! She has a stunning silhouette with ruffles galore, the prettiest puff sleeves, the fullest skirt and beautiful bow feature at her neckline. She has an ivory colourway with a beautiful delicate floral print, and is a truly romantic dream dress. This cut of Laura Ashley is probably the most coveted of all of her 1980s designs, and it is clear to see why.. I mean, it is pure magic.. and I have no idea how I managed to find another yet again! I hope she heads to the best home today!

The Ophelia has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a cool setting. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear. I have had several versions of this dress, and usually they are longer than this, Ophelia may have been shortened at some point in her life, but regardless, she is still a true stunner and at this price is a steal, usually they are £250-300. She does have some slight colour fading which is apparent on ALL of these bo peep Laura Ashley dresses.
This beauty has minimal signs of vintage wear, but please bear in mind that our pieces are true vintage, they’ve been danced in and they have been lived in, so all of our garments will carry your usual signs of vintage wear. Anything that we think is outside of what would class as usual vintage wear, we will state.
