1970' maxi dress

I have been searching for the perfect 1970’s maxi dress for some time now, and while I have found several, it was not until I tried on this dress, that I found “the one”.  I have a smaller frame and until now have always felt like the dress was wearing me, rather than me wearing the dress.  The vintage Aimee dress (Penny Jane’s Vintage, Windsor, ON. $45) pictured here was a great compromise.  By selecting a dress with no sleeves and a crocheted collar I was still able to capture the essence of the 1970’s maxi dress without compromising fit.

Resin clutch (vintage, Jones & Co., Windsor, ON. $38).
