Vintage Floral Maxi Dresses

I found this beautiful image from December's W Magazine and I was inspired to pull some of
vintage floral maxi dresses.
The following maxi dresses are dated from the 1970's to the 1980's.

This Floral Maxi Dress comes in the 1970's Prairie Style in white cotton, orange trim and is perfectly boho chic!


This 1970's Floral Gown comes in yellow nylon and has a rich, colorful, floral print in yellow, pale pink, and two tones of blue. Light weight and flowing fabric make for a lovely vintage statement.

This 1970's Maxi is one of my favorites, it comes in a blue polyester and has an abstract floral print in pink with splashes of white to bring a nice contrast throughout the fabric. This dress has a high wasted princess cut with a v neckline and long sleeves.

A beautiful vintage take on colorful, floral maxis.

Terrific in Tan

This week I pulled this fantastic page on pretty in python but my inspiration was the color. Tan is an easy earth tone that just about anyone can wear, not to mention the rich gold accents in the jewelry and hardware. This Harpers Bazaar page features styles from the 60's-the 90's.

This Ladies 1980's Cape (1960's style) comes in a tan polyester (faux suede) and has rich gold clasp closure detail. 

This cape offers texture and color and is available 
for just $22 and has never been worn, original tags attached.

Let's not forget my favorite accessory-shoes! These 1990's Tahari Ballet Flats come in a rich tan leather and have the 1960's flare with the large bow detail.
These gently used flats are just $37 and are in amazing condition.
We have 60's, 80's and 90's to complete this seasons look, not bad for just $59, you can have an affordable look with some high end brands, and without the high end price!
