Retro 1960s A-line Print Tunic

Lately, I have been feeling uninspired to do anything creative. Ideas dried up for a while, driving force overtaken by pure and simple laziness. I know the mind needs to rest to renew itself but I feel impatient to wait.

DSCF5403WHAT: Vintage inspired geometric print cotton A-line tunic dress, worn with vintage style Pour la Victoire sandals.  Although, this tunic is a retro piece not an original vintage, (the label reads “Good Things”), it was love at first site when I found it.  The pretty print, color and shape is totally MOD.

Vintage 1970s Crochet Maxi Dress

It feels liberating to declutter my closet.  I keep what I love and loves me back and let go the ones that don’t fit my life anymore. Making space for the new and lovely.  Same with people. DSCF5213WHAT:  Crochet maxi dress made of an original vintage 1970s crochet pattern.  I started to crochet this dress last summer, then fall came and it went into storage until this year.  I was working on it all summer and finished right before fall.  DSCF5227
