1970's Inspiration.















Colorful Hippie Dress: Thrifted.
Brown Wedge Heels: Target.
Gold Chain Necklace: Thrifted.
Brown Headband: ?
I took these pictures yesterday and man was it hot outside! I was sweating so much it was unbelievable... This dress is definitely a dress for fall. The fabric is just too heavy for Ohio's heat and humidity in the summer! You can also tell from my hair in the pictures how humid it was: it looks like a giant puff ball!
Other than my hair, I was pretty happy with how the photos turned out. I'm usually so into the 40's and 50's, so it was nice wear a little something out of my comfort zone. I really tried to pose a lot with my arms to highlight the gorgeous butterfly sleeves of the dress: my favorite part!
I always love to make up silly stories to go along with the photos I take. In these photos I imagined myself being a 70's freespirt who was against the war in Vietnam and liked to be around nature. That's the great thing about fashion. I can always be someone different from my boring, shy, awkward teenage self!

Gorgeous pictures. You look like a model in those pictures. I love the pretty dress, but I can definitley relate to it being to heavy. I hate that feeling in the hot heat.
