♥ DESCRIPTION: A really AMAZING & very rare to find, original 70s vintage, Indian block printed blue, green and purple floral pure gauze cotton, midi/maxi dress, with bold and beautiful styling, and with gold inking throughout to pick up the patterning ~ featuring the most beautiful Indian hand block floral print all over in gorgeous, purples and greens with gold Indian ink ~ slight v-neckline ~ and with nehru collar ~ the upper part of the dress front and back, features GORGEOUS pintucked green silk which defines the bodice area  ~ four twisted cotton ties at the neckline with metal balls at the ends, which can be tied for a closer fitting style, or left untied, (which make a very pretty jingle as you move) ~ ~ lovely, long, very floaty shape, coming down from under bust and flaring out towards the hem which ends in bold bands of deeply patterned purple gauze with green and gold inking ~ and finishing off with a band of the green silk across hem line.


The back is stunning also ~ like the front, it has the green silk to accentuate the bodice section which looks so lovely ~ and then falling into the long floaty skirt. This dress is unlined ~ although due to the addition of the silk at the bodice, the top section is not semi sheer at all. The sleeves are unlined and floaty and start off wider graduating down to the cuff where they close with a popper at each cuff and end in a hen of the green silk...This dress is just so DIVINE!!! 


This dress is ABSOLUTELY gorgeous ~ sumptuous & rich in colour and so light and easy to wear...and with the gold inked detailing adding that little extra bit of bohemian, Indian charm, arranged in patterns like henna art. ~ The lovely gauze cotton fabric & floaty shape & style creates such an incredibly sexy & flattering style & fit...Would look just fabulous worn over a bikini on the beach for a last minute getaway, or on its own with sandals, or dressed up at night with heels and a huge leather belt...so versatile, & so perfect for any occasion, weddings, holidays, layered with an oversized chunky knit cardie & leggings, or just to add a bohemian flare to your everyday!! xxx


Excellent vintage condition ~  Pure Gauze Cotton ~ which is ever so slightly sheer ~ and with green silk pintucked detailing to the bodice which makes the boduce section opaque ~  this dress is unlined...and in every way beautiful...You'll be amazed by this dress!!! It's a real;y lovely one!!!xxx


♥ STYLING:

~ 70s Fashion Revival...Indian Prints  ~ 

 

As the years change we call for another tribute to a decade, and 2012 is no exception. Coupled with the vintage and 20s vibes echoing through our newly replenished wardrobes and catwalks, 70s retro has made a triumphant return to the tune of bright colours, Indian patterns, and midi & maxi dresses...and we couldn’t be happier...

 

A decade remembered for disco, big hair, roller skates, festivals, bohemian chic and unmistakeable fashion, a 70s revival would be nothing without its statement pieces, as the 70s were about risk taking and having fun and a laid back ethic – especially when it came to clothes!

 

It’s not only the tiered maxi dresses, Bowie – inspired silhouette, eye-searing colour combinations and high waisted jeans that’s getting our pulses racing, there’s also the accessories, hair and make-up directly referencing Jodie Foster in Taxi Driver (as seen at Marc Jacobs) or Bianca Jagger and model Pat Cleveland circa their Studio 54 heyday...and of course the prints...

 

The Indian heritage prints of paisley’s twisted teardrops, flowers & swirls find new style currency this season, according to Vogue. Paisley and Indian block printing were particularly popular during the bygone days of the 'Summer of Love', identifying with a psychedelic style and the interest in Indian spirituality and culture brought about, in part, by the pilgrimage of The Beatles to India in 1968.

 

With fashion now looking back to this bohemian era, it’s no surprise that paisley & other Indian prints, especially original vintage Indian gauze cotton pieces, will be high on our ‘must buy’ agenda! Pick a paisley-printed cotton day dress, as seen at Jill Sander, or wear yours emblazoned across traditional pyjama pieces, as at Stella McCartney, or for the more daring, splash it across billowing skirts in psychedelic paisley ranging from turquoise to lime green, pink and scarlet, like Emilio Pucci, who are famed for their swirls of patterns. Alternatively this seasons floral prints, especially the Indian vintage block printed fabric in the lightest gauze cottonss, in their muted ethnic colours, or the bright and beautiful, will keep you on track to 70s inspired hippie bliss…a look which gives a simple yet chic vibe to any outfit...and an air of laid back bohemian beauty to the wearer...

 

So, don’t forget to put a flower in your hair, or on your ankle as seen at D&G! And grab yourself some of the sweetest Indian prints ~ and get ready to reveal your bohemian side...xxx

US 2/4 - 10/12 - estimated  ~ would fit smaller also ~ please see measurements below...


Some items do not carry a full range of international sizes in the label so i use an internet international size conversion site to translate UK sizes into EURO and US sizes ~ the site has proved very accurate, however if you are unsure please check sizes for yourself.
