DD's Style File - Haute Hippie

This dress screams Woodstock era. I was born much too late to enjoy any of that save the planet, free lovin', but this dress reminds me of something that I would have found in my mother's closet from days gone by. It's just spot on with that whole vintage feel.




Chiffon maxi dress - Forever 21
Tan sandals - Simply Vera for Kohl's
Turquoise necklace - Forever 21 (old)
During my trip to Forever 21 Times Square, I actually passed this beauty up. Luckily, I had time to go back after seeing Cinderella on Broadway (since F21 conveniently stays open until 2 a.m), so I dropped back in to shop some more.

And I had to go back and visit this dress...

Obviously, the stuff you find at F21 is mass produced, but from time to time you can happen upon a piece that has a unique feel to it, and to me this dress had that vintage-like vibe. Reminiscent of a great piece you find in a great thrift store (if we had any of those around here).

 
 
 
 
I wasn't able to find this dress online, but its worth checking for again. But if where you live is anywhere like where I live, and you lack awesome thrift stores to shop, Etsy and eBay are both great place to find similarly styled dresses or you can try one of these 12 and 3.
 
Peace, Love & Hair Grease, y'all!!
