The fashion lover in me is always interested in see what was fashionable to previous generations. As a millennial with baby boomer parents searching through old family photos isn’t just to take a trip down memory lane. I do it to also get some style inspiration. Recently I came across a few pictures that reminded me of an old dress I haven’t worn in years. It’s this yellow floral 60’s princess dress.
I purchased the dress years ago at H&M. At the time hippie chic was popular. Peasant tops, mod dresses, and embroidery were in every store. I came across this groovy dress and was immediately excited. The floral pattern is totally reminiscent of the 60’s. A dress Daphne from Scooby Doo might have worn on a date with Fred.
What sold me on the dress completely was the bottom half. The princess ruffles are exaggerated by the use of structured tulle and darting. I never have to worry about the dress losing it’s shape. The stretch spandex material is extremely comfortable. Not to mention that’s the only reason I can fit this dress after all these years. It’s one of few dresses I own that allow me to twirl like a ballerina. Perdect with flats during the day or sandals at night.
