I bought this dress from a Vinnies Retro (before the challenge actually started, so I'm cheating a little bit with this entry!). I do love Vinnies Retro - it's kind of nice when you're not in the mood to sort through a million racks at the op-shop - but because it's 'retro', the prices are quite a bit higher than a normal op-shop!
That was the case with this dress. I could barely justify the $40 price tag, but it IS a beautiful print... and shape... and it reminds me so much of Stevie Nicks. I haven't worn this one nearly enough to justify the price, though! My mum took it up for me but we haven't finished it yet, so the hem is pretty bubbly at the moment. But, I couldn't go past this dress for the op-shop challenge - if you ever need something vintage and don't mind spending a little bit more, the Vinnies Retro in Fremantle is an excellent place to shop! There is another Vinnies Retro in the city, but the prices are a little bit less WOAH and a little more wallet-friendly.

I have to say, I've half-written a lot of posts about how the seventies just isn't that inspiring to me. Well, to be honest, there was a while where anything after the 1960s wasn't that inspiring. But lately I've been listening to a lot more Fleetwood Mac, Joni Mitchell and Janis Joplin and I think that I've begun to appreciate the beauty of the '70s. I'm talking more about fresh-faced earnest folk singers, rather than the disco, Saturday Night Fever era. I don't know if it will have that much of an effect on my style but it's nice to dip my (velvet boot clad) toes in the '70s fashion for a little bit!
