Apocalypse Sew:: Green and White Horseshoe Print 70s Dress


Aaaaaaaaaaaaaages ago now I wrote about Apocalypse Sew and said that I would post about some of my vintage finds however I am not a very consistent blogger so I never did. UNTIL NOW!  I hope through these posts to demonstrate how easy  and affordable it is to live without buying new clothes.

I don’t pretend to be someone with any expertise in fashion and dating vintage items* but I reckon this dress is from the 70s due to its shape and the fabric.

I love wearing this dress because it gives a great shape and also I love the bold colour print, especially the larger contrasting collar, button band and cuffs.

I always wear it with this leopard brooch (a gift from an amazing lady Mr Kapow used to work with called Patsy) and hot pink lipstick and accessories.

I bought the dress in Vintage Guru on Byres Rd for £7.50.  In fact, my sister bought it for me on my birthday.  I find Vintage Guru in genral very reasonable and they have a good range of stuff.

*You know what I mean, dating not dating!  If you own vintage items and consider them more than friends in a Lars and the Real Girl sorta way then you’re on the wrong blog my friend.  However, please email me because I’d like to know more.
