Outfit details: 1970's vintage dress - Shag! Rose earrings - Diva, Opaques - Voodoo, Shoes -Wittner
How could I resist that title? My shopping trip on Wednesday included a trip into the city store of Shag Vintage - quite a good vintage store if you are looking for items particularly from the 60's and 70's. I have often found many of the items over priced for what they are, but this dress called my name the minute I walked in. The bright red poppy (?) print was peaking out from behind swaths of polyester, and the moment I picked it off the rail I knew it was one of the most unique pieces in the store. The very chipper chap behind the counter kindly zipped me in, and it fit like a glove. The fabric is a knit, so it is warm enough to handle our winter days too. It has a sweetheart neckline with ruching in the front, and the sleeves are a little puffed at the shoulders. It appears to be a hand made piece, adding to its originality, and I adore the 40's styling with the loud 70's print. So all in all, it is perfect for a girl who likes her outfits to shout rather than whisper.
