Just a FABULOUS 70s Dress!


Dress: Vintage Thrifted, Shoes:  BCBG Thrifted, Bracelets:  Vintage Thrfited





I'm such a fan of dresses!  When I came across this one on Friday, I couldn't believe my luck!  It sports the reds, pinks and blacks....my favorite colors AND a FABULOUS print....which I'm ALWAYS a sucker for.

Now the thing about a catchy print is that it demands to perform solo.  I honestly think anyone can wear a statement print, regardless of body type or height or age or any other factors.  But some things to keep in mind are:


  • keep accessories to a minimum
  • wear a simple shoe (preferably with height)
  • own it!
And owning it is probably the most important advice.  But that goes with most looks, wouldn't you say?

Since I couldn't decide if I should sell this in my eBay store or keep it for myself; I decided to list it and if it sells, I'll take it as a sign that I was merely a temporary girlfriend and not a soul mate.  So if you're interested, it'll be in my store this week.

I'm feeling so very visible in my gorgeous 70s super dress, so you'll also find me at Patti's place over on her blog for Visible Monday.  Join me there!

  7. I love how you animated the breeze! Is that dress red white and blue. It screams 70's. Whenever I see that color combination the memories just come flooding back. I have yet found just the right piece to add to my wardrobe yet, maybe in May!

  9. So pretty boho, and really different. It reminds me of the 1970s patchwork looks, except more feminine and sexy!

    1. Thanks Beryl! I do tend to define my waist. I have such broad shoulders and hips that it's not always a good look for me to wear big and loose. But I'm going to HAVE to for the summer....just gets too hot!
