Back From the Market: Etsy, again!
I ordered this playful modish dress from DJVV, Etsy, for no reason other than what it represents: a moment in the past when it was trendy to play with your clothes. I wish I had been there to see a world in which hemlines were super short, color ruled the roost, and ruffles abounded. Women were so flirty and fun!
Added bonus: the Disney-esque mushrooms that seem to just bounce around the dress are a glorious nod to 1960s/70s psychedelic culture.
It’s soooo short! Almost can’t be legal, so it’s a very good thing that I’m soooo short too!
These were once dubbed my “Hobo boots.” Whatever bum is rocking these is pretty damn stylish.
