Now I have to say that this is one of my favorite outfits yet! I mean, I love them all, but the jewelry and the dress in this one are simply just divine! I would find a way to wear them everyday! Yes, even to the dogpark! There is something so ethereal and free about this 1970’s dress that reminds of how much I wish I could’ve experienced the 70’s just for a brief moment. The freedom, the silent, yet forward sexiness, the accidental nature that was your life. I know the 70’s wasn’t completely Hippie happiness, but this dress, in its simplicity, speaks to the hopefulness of what the 70’s promised. Hope you enjoy!
Petal Mini Dress: $78 at Spanish Moss Vintage! Gorgeous vintage dress fully lined with empire waist and zip back. I am in <3 with this dress! It reminds me of the 20’s; the light pale color, the effortless flow, a style that begs for you to be advantageous. Wonderfully simplistic!
Sequin Jacket: $80 at Nasty Gal Vintage! Beautiful against the pale, whimsical mini dress, this jacket adds a little bit of edge and fun! Perfect to dress up an outfit, or to just simply to throw over your favorite tee!
Vintage 1950’s Silver Onyx ring: $34 on Etsy at Lilah Belle’s Vintage! Beautiful vintage Victorian Revival sterling silver filigree ring features a black onyx rhinestone that’s claw set in an open back setting. The filigree open-work is very intricate and has goregeous light patina/oxidation that gives it an antiqued look that’s completely natural. (Description Via LBV) FYI if I had the bucks to spare I wouldn’t hesitate for a second on snatching this up! I can actually feel my heart beating! Fabulous!
Double Chain Cross Necklace: $82 at Spanish Moss Vintage! Vintage 70’s silver bamboo molded cross pendant with double chain detail. Lobster clasp detail. Absolutely exquisite! It could be that I was watching The Other Boleyn Girl today and the nature of this necklace reminds me of that jewelry. But either way, I still am in love with it!
Bootie: $99.95 at Nordstroms! I luv the studs on these boots and I luv how they play with dress and help make it more sexy than sweet! I couldn’t decide if these totally worked with the dress, but I had to use them! They’re just to amazing. But as a second option there are these oxford boots from Urban Outfitters!
Spanish Moss Vintage (I am in love with this site!) was founded in 2006 by Suzanne Ford Carafano. An online boutique, it specializes in statement vintage pieces for tastemakers, artists, and IT girls (or just those in spirit). Spanish Moss also features a carefully curated collection of the most quality and progressive independent designers in the Shop New section of the site. In addition, Spanish Moss designs and produces a signature clothing line – American Gold – that is manufactured in California. Spanish Moss also hosts the Spanish Moss Mag, a blog collective written by carefully selected fashionistas and Spanish Moss girls to keep you updated on the latest street style and runway trends, art, literature, music, and progressive culture.
