Updated Hippy Style

Scrapbook dress

I was a flower child in the ’60s. Two of my favourite fashion trends at the time were flowers and tie-dyed clothes. I dabbled in tie-dying and turned a plain white T-shirt into a work of art.

When I saw this dress on Jean’s Drizzle & Shine website and Instagram, it reminded me of my T-shirt, same colours. Only this dress is far more stylish with bell sleeves and I love the addition of lace and tassels. far out — as I used to say!

Urban Dictionary: far out

When something is cool, you say Far Out! Often used by hippies.

You can imagine my delight when the dress arrived in a package that Jean sent.

    A beautiful dress, I love the print with the gradient in blue. The design, with the white ornaments and the sleeves is also beautiful. I like the combination with the blue stockings, a beautiful monochrome. The jacket and the kerchief are also perfectly combined, and your booties and your necklace are two cute. I love Jean’s store.

      Thank you so much Josep-Maria! I already had these blue tights and they blend perfectly for the monochrome look. The jacket is from Germany. I’m happy that I can shop at Jean’s store again soon. ๐Ÿ™‚
