Today I am styling Kristina’s beautiful vintage maxi dress! I headed with my friend’s and family to a vintage trailer rally and flea market so I figured I had to dress the part, right? This dress is from the 1970’s: 100% polyester with big chiffon sleeves and a mauve tone. If that’s not 1970s glam I don’t know what is! To heighten the 1970s effect I cut in large fringe bangs.
I have fallen in love with this dress because it is so easy to wear and unique. I’ve created two more ways to style this dress (casual & business casual) and I’ll share them with you in subsequent Shaped by Style posts.
To continue my theme of vintage ’70s glam I added gold arm bands, a vintage brooch at the waist and my favorite rock stud sandals.
Hopefully Kristina won’t mind, but this outfit felt so “me” that I have worn the dress a few additional times, once to Costco. I got some weird looks, but who cares?! It’s a beautiful vintage maxi dress and is a joy to wear!
