Disco Days

One of my most beloved sartorial items is this vintage dress from my mother's closet circa 1970. I doubt my mom expected her daughter to cherish it - and the cocktail stain at the hem - nearly 40 years later.

Once my boyfriend's house is renovated, I plan to host a summer party on the patio wearing this dress, chandelier earrings and bare feet.

  1. Nice to know good taste runs in the family! My mom had some awesome, psychedelic colored minis and I wish I had kept them. I still have her vintage Bruno Magli shoes which I definitely plan on reconditioning and wearing!

  26. Great dress, lucky girl! I wish my mom had hung on to her clothes from the 60's and 70's. Unfortunately her wedding dress is pretty much the only thing that made the cut. I wouldve killed to own some of her DVF wrap dresses though. At this point they would be vintage and fabulous!

    By the way, love your blog!
