Zigzag Maxi Dress and Platform Shoes {In the Closet}

I’ve often said that I was born in the wrong decade. I should’ve been a flapper {I totally would’ve been hanging off some gangsta’s car} or a hippie {my hippie name is Dani Blue Sky Eagle Feather. Kid you not.}. But since my parents didn’t get their timing right, I have to play a hippie on my blog.

From the zigzag print and the funky colors to the layered tiers, doesn’t this maxi dress just scream retro? And can we talk about the length? I wasn’t sure about the hi~lo hem because the back is so long that it actually drags on the ground… But when I found those shoes, I may have squealed a bit in the store. Those fabulous babies set me back a whopping $3.99! Aren’t they fab?

About the bag. That bag is one of my favorite summer totes. My kids call it my “Toddler Stealing Bag” because it can fit a toddler quite comfortably. I won’t tell you how we know this. I know it doesn’t match {or even go with} my dress but I like it and, really, that’s all that matters.

    I can totally understand the squeal. Amazing shoes. I am envious of your marvellous find.Please tell me you live in Utah, New Mexico or Arizona because I am going there and I need to know the name of your thrift store 🙂

    • Missouri. LOL When I lived in Pennsylvania, my thrift store runs always came up empty. Now? It’s still hit or miss but most of the time it’s a hit.

  • Love the shoes and the way you mix patterns. You look fabulous!

    • Thank you, that was waaaaay out of my comfort zone.

  • Em

    i love all the prints/colours/textures going on in this outfit – so great! Also, $3.99 shoes? pretty sweet!

    • Thank you, Em. Great find, right?

  • Aren’t you afraid that you’re gonna fall off those heals and break something?!?
    It’s just too hard, takes too much effort to be a woman. Thank God I was born a man.

    • LOL No, not at all. I wear platforms only for that reason. Being a woman is just fun.

  • you make a great hippie and those shoes were made for you! thanks for linking up with dress for the day!

    • Thank you, Abby. I do heart them.

    toddler stealing! hahaha..
    I love when things aren’t perfectly matched. You make it match. Opposites attract here for sure… like two long lost friends. My favorite alter ego is a hippie as well, love that pattern.

    • I used to tell my parents all the time that they should have planned better. LOL Although I do have pictures of myself in some funky pants, I would’ve loved the free flowing crochet dresses, flowers in the hair, etc.

    dear dani blue, you look amazing! love the dress and i would have been so mad if you left those shoes in the store! great find;)

    • Thank you. And, I’m loving that you call me “Dani Blue”. Too funny. I wanted to give my kids those types of names but the hubs wasn’t having it. I’ve begged the kids to let me change their names but they’re like “NO!”
