Sheer Seventies

1 Feb

It’s not very often that I gravitate towards 70’s style dresses, as most of my taste tends towards more of a 60’s or 90’s edge, though I LOVE 70’s high waisted jeans and wedges!!  I found this dress last week and just really loved the sheer delicate fabric with the pleating on top, loose airy sleeves, burgundy tones and mixed prints.  After I put it on to style for the shop, I’m wondering why I don’t have more 70’s dresses- this is super cute!  I guess I’m just a person of habit and tend to steer away from ‘the unknown’ and re-buy the same sort of thing that I KNOW I like (polka dots, stripes, plaid, 60’s mini dresses, 90’s babydoll and bodycon).  I guess 2011 is about venturing out a bit more, and hope to reflect that in the shop with a bit more variety, while staying true to style integrity.  I hope you like this dress as much as I do, this and more up now at Castaway Vintage!

Here is a sneak peek of one of the many amazing new items going up in the Castaway Vintage shop this week, taken at our photoshoot session yesterday!  I paired this vintage 1980’s lace bodycon backless dress with some vintage gloves I found at a yard sale this weekend for $1(!!), along with this vintage 1940s/60s style pillbox hat that I found last week at H&M.  I’m growing a bit tired of the boater hat look that I’ve been rocking all summer and love how these accessories take a hooker style dress into something quite classy!

I’ll be going through all the photos this week to get everything listed as soon as possible- don’t forget to add us on Twitter for up to the minute updates, news, and sales!
