I think I was born in the wrong era! I’ve always thought they had it right in the Hippy Years, from music, ideology to fashion. One of the best dress up nights you will ever go to is bound to be a Hippy Party!
Hippies range from minidresses, to maxis, from all sorts of materials. Often there are beautiful details like embroidery and extra features on vintage items – the sort of attention to detail rarely seen in our mass produced market of today. Hippy fashion entails all things beautiful and bohemian with the craft of different cultures front and centre.
In fact, I met my beautiful husband at Deb’s 1970’s party (as I’ve blogged before!)……he was wearing a huge afro and I didn’t recognise him when I saw him again a few weeks later!
Hippies are a constant item in our little costume shop. People are always happy to go as a groovy hippy to a 1960’s or 1970’s show. The look is comfy yet eclectic and you are free to express yourself anyway you feel.
From miniskirts to maxi dresses, this era was characterised by freedom and self expression.
