The Seventies Prairie Dress, Calicos, Florals, Bohos

If you are anything like me, you might snoop around etsy a little more often than often; it wouldn't be a stretch to say I'm snooping almost all the time, and you may be snooping around less than that and yet enough to be proud of!
And sometimes something really neat catches my eye, like this colorful, slightly altered 70s paririe dress from tulip's shop, in an eye-catching, bright mix of yellows, reds, and greens. It's very Fleetwood Mac-meets-Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House, a little of the sexy wanderlust of both worlds, European and American, innocence and maturity.
In my own closet, I have a couple of such vintage prairie skirts, and one handmade long coverall-sack type dress (no photos, sorry!), that is so unassuming, I feel it conveys honesty! Is it possible for a garment to do that? And in my shop, there is the most modern and innocent all-white eyelet and ticking Gunne-Sax-type seventies dress that one could ever hope to happily wear without dusting the ground. (free shipping in December ;)


  1. I love that prairie dress you found!!! Too small for me :(

    Ooh and the eyelet dress is fantastic!

  2. Lovely dresses! I love prairie skirts.
