Go vintage, or go home…


vintage dress, 1960s vintage, 1970s vintage, gogo boots, My Vintage Spirit 1960s vintage necklace

It has been over two years since I discovered this epic bit of vintage wonder in my 95-year old grandma's attic (see how I wore it the first time HERE).  I seriously cannot believe that she had something like this hiding up there for who knows how long!  Yes, I did shorten it.  It was definitely a mu-mu before, and the elastic around the wrists is totally shot (and I was much too lazy to replace it), but I still love pulling it out and going full vintage. 

Add some knee-high boots, winged eyeliner, and this lovely 1960s vintage style necklace, and I think I pulled off one of my groovier looks in recent history! 






Dress = vintage
Boots = Charlotte Russe

    1. Why thank you! Almost hard to believe that the original fabric was pleated and has managed to hold up for so long!

    1. It was a gem among many, many rocks, if you know what I mean. I think we ended up sorting through about 8 giant garbage bags full of old clothes before I uncovered this dress!

    1. I always love when I re-discover this piece in my wardrobe. I think it is just meant to be a piece that is continually rediscovered in some context.
