dressed up like a lady: Hippy dippy.

Aug 15, 2008

Hippy dippy.

This blousy cotton number is from that Urban Outfitters line Urban Renewal where they take vintage materials and rework them. This sounds like kind of a dumb way to add the coolness factor of vintage to what are still mass produced items, but regardless of the label on any garment, if you like it, you like it. And I like it.



Top: UO
Jeans: BDG

This big brass ankh was my mom's, worn during her 60's flower child days. I love it and it's especially perfect for day when I'm wearing 60's inspired clothes to go with it -- but it's really heavy!




Navel and anti-war signs. Hippiest day ever.

  6. I love the ankh! A few years ago I was OBSESSED with Ancient Egypt and tried to make an ankh necklace - it didn't work out. My grandma, aware of my obsession, even got me a T-shirt that said "I <3 my mummy" but instead of the word "mummy" it was a picture of a mummy. I still wear it and people always say, "You heart you pharaoh? Huh?"

  11. You really work this outfit out. :] It would look a bit ridiculous on me (or so I think) but it looks amazing on you!

    My sister used to work for Urban Outfitters & told me a little bit about Urban Renewal. I think the concept it amazing... but I loathe how much money you're spending for something that was most likely bought in the thrift store anyway. Actually, all of UO's clothes are terribly expensive. Sigh; such is life.

    Also, you have a great figure. ;]

  20. This is adorable! You are probably one of the few people who can pull off a navel-baring top and make it look cute, not trashy.

  35. Amazing color of your shoes and I love your lunch box

  36. I used to have tops like that when I was little. Ah those were the days. I wish I had one like it now. They sort of remind me of Genies for some reason... It's okay, I don't like nectarines either.

  37. So YOU'RE the one who came into my room at night and stole my body while I was asleep...:) You look totally fantastic.

    You are the hippest hippy I've every seen, my magnificently mod beauty. Love that last pic, totally spontaneous and cute.

    YOU ROCK!
