Hippie Dress Deja Vu

It's one thing to see a dress on another woman at the same party... it's quite another thing to see a vintage dress year after year, found again and again.  Yet this one has done it:

We've uncovered this dress (well, not this exact one, but copies of it) many times over the years at Vintage Vixen.  I'd assumed it was just a very popular hippie style imported from India.  Until...



This vintage advertisement from 1979 filled in its history a bit.  It was indeed an Indian import, but its presence on the pages of a popular magazine is what must've made it a big seller in the late 70s.

The original ad says this dress is "free-flowing, easy-going fashion that's so zingy, so terrific to wear... every hour, every chance you get!"  Pretty cool that it was an authentic block print.

Notice the vintage price of $19.95, too... in today's dollars this dress would be $64.33!

  2. Questo marchio di Replica Orologi possiede un gran numero di fedeli fan. Forse sono ricchi. Ma se alcuni di loro non possono permettersi i prezzi elevati, possono scegliere il nostro negozio online.

  4. Yeah, vintage is a popular brand name through out the world for its versatile clothing and other home products. Hippie dress is really very common but the appeal and attraction is still popular to party and fashion addicts. The dress looks so gorgeous with rich design and color. I am not sure if it is worth to be the Ladies Party Dresses, but indeed beautiful.
