I’ve been tripping on seventies fashion for a rather long time…I’d say, oh, 15 years? Haha! Ever since I first saw Dazed and then went on a Hendrix binge I still haven’t come out the other side of – have you LISTENED to songs like A Merman I Should Turn To Be and Rainy Day Dream Away – they are So good! And recently I’ve been listening to Red House on repeat ever since I randomly woke up with it in my head a few weeks ago. My love for Hendrix and seventies fashion is probably not new to you, I mean, I’ve blogged about him before in my Top 5 songs that inspire me & mentioned how I would have LOVED to be at Woodstock ’69 to see him perform in this hippie inspired post . In terms of 70s fashion posts, I’ve worn flares and been hilarious with friends here, gone a bit 70s-by-way-of-90s here, and of course worn a figure hugging sweater as a dress and worn my babing white go-go boots here, but, to be quite frank, this new dress SHITS on those outfits! Ha!
Why? Well, firstly, I designed it. It’s from PHO sizzle‘s Year Of The Goat Winter 15 collection which isn’t available online yet – it will be by the 27th of this month. It IS available at Design A Space on Brunswick Street in Fitzroy in limited sizes, if you’re a Melbourne gal and need this orange baby in your life.
Secondly, it is made from the most insanely 70s fabric you’ll ever find. Ever. My shopper saw it at the fabric market in Hanoi and sent me a pic and I thought, YUP, this is IT, I must have it!
Thirdly, it has thumb holes shaped like hearts for when your lil fingers get too cold to deal with winter wind. COME ON! Heart thumb holes!? EEEP!
So, yes, as you can tell. I’m keeping this one for me. We only made a few because we are now realizing our company and my designs are, hmm, how to say this…an acquired taste? But, I am in love with this frock and will be wearing it ALL winter.
