A Vintage Indian Summer

We seem to be experiencing a second wind for Summer, or more appropriately named, an Indian Summer-no surprise for September, considering it is the return of many to school and work now!!

This is the 1970s vintage cotton summer dress I purchased in Clacton for only £3.50 and I'm pleased I got the chance to wear it before summer disappears completely!

It is gypsy shoulder styled and three tiered-I remember them first time round, when I so desperately wanted and got a three tiered skirt, with a sewn in lace petticoat at the hem!!

The lighting doesn't show the colours that well, but the pink, tan and lemon colours are quite vivid-I don't think it was worn much as its in very good condition.

My mum recalls having a similar dress back in the day too!

What will you wear during this Indian Summer?

That is such a cute dress, I never find anything in my size in dresses that I like.

Such a pretty dress and you really suit pink... I don't know, what I will be wearing as I have to wear boots everyday because of all the crap around the house... xx

Lovely dress, and a great length. The sort of dress you can really swish around in.

The dress looks very good on you!

This is such a pretty dress and looks so great on you, you could definitely wear it even in winter with a sweater underneath and tights.
I've started wearing long trousers, but am still boycotting socks ;-)

The print is so pretty, I can't believe the sun is finally out in September. I've been on Blackpool promenade today and it was like being abroad with the sun shining, it was so hot!

Erm a mess of A/W clothes as I got as far as stuffing all my summer clothes away and to the point of a messy pile of A/W stuff, then BAM out comes the sun, crazy, crazy weather!

This is stellar ! It is a great look, colour and style for you. Hope the summer doesn't completely go...we are just heading into spring in Australia, so I am kind of doing the opposite to you right now. Cheers:)

You look sweet in this dress. I like the softness of it, the dropped waist, the cheerful colors...

Anusha said...

OMG I love that dress! The print, the style, everything -- looks smashing on you! I have a huge love of '70s prints. I wish they brought them back.

The dress looks gorgeous on you! It was really warm and sunny here in Kent today, so I wore the Phase Eight stripe dress I got in the sale as I have only worn it once on holiday so its nice to get some more wear out of it.

Belle de Ville said...

Very pretty, that is a great color on you. I'd wear a dress like that even into fall with a jacket, scarf and some boots.
