All us vintage-loving chicks have our favourite era, for me it's the late 1960's and the early 1970's. Psychedelia, hippy culture, the overland trail, free festivals, sexual equality, long hair, bra burning, eastern philosophy, The Rolling Stones, crushed velvet, free love, Jimi Hendrix, mini and maxi dresses, platform soles, crimplene....what's not to love?
|Vintage frock (Banardos' £2.99), Edwardian lace up boots (British Heart Foundation £4.99), Yellow opaques (Dorothy Perkins courtesy of the lovely Alex)|
I spotted this vintage 1960's mini dress on sale in Banardos' earlier and thought I'd nabbed the find of the day until I discoved these vintage lovelies hanging on the charity stall on the market.
St Michael nylon maxi dress £1 - actually a nightie but a perfect beach dress in Goa
1960's linen coat, still in the dry cleaner's wrapper. A perfect fit, Very Jackie O and just £2.
Sweet 1960's crimplene mini dress, again a perfect fit for £1.50.
Another perfectly fitting frock, a 1960's black crimplene number with gold lurex daisy braiding £1.50
Now which one do I wear to the pub tonight?
