Daily Outfit - Shag Me!




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.

Definitely very you, the dress was put there on that very rack for you!
I love the print, with your pale skin and dark hair it's very old Hollywood glamour. Love it to bits SKM!

Beautiful dress.

I got married (the first time) in a very similar dress. Sweet heart neckline, big floral print but it was a ballerina length. Laura Ashley 1988.
You look wayyyyyy better in it and display a rare appreciation of the right way to wear a shoe-boot.

Rockin.

LM: Kismet.
Danielle Delamont: I love the way the red pops too.
Wendy & nadine: Thank you my friends.
Hammie: I know just the sort you mean. I thin I had a few of those in 88 too.
Kelly: I just figured out some new hair for today, so this one might be next on the tutorials. It's a french roll with a stack of curls at the top.
