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.
