Romance of 1970s Vintage Dresses

1970s Romantic Dresses

While I may delve into other eras and certainly love discovering  and learning about every era of fashion history, I will always think of the 1970s as the foundation on which I build my vintage fashion self.  That is where it all started, as when I first began wearing vintage the 1970s was the most accessible – it was in style in the 90s (not particularly in style where I was living at the time, but I was more of a trend setter anyway) and I could find these pieces easily as they were what my aunts and mother had.  My Etsy shop is bursting with the 70s – in particular bursting with the romantic pieces.  Gunne Sax, Candi Jones, Peggy Barker, prairie dress, dresses harking back to the Edwardian and Victorian eras.  The 70s was a great time for looking back – I have had some really neat 70s does 40s and 70s does 50s also.  Anyway, searching for 1970s in my shop I find around 400 items so there is likely something for everyone!  The dresses I have pictured are a bit on the formal side but there are of course more casual cotton dresses also in simpler styles.   If you are looking for something specific or need sizing information please contact me!
