Don’t you love a feminine dress that you can just throw on, and feel terrific? That’s how I feel about this vintage 80’s “festival”/”granny”/”hippie” dress I found at Bella’s shop. It’s a little oversized, but that works to make it more comfortable, and gives it a boho vibe. I adore the dark floral print too, and the sweetheart neckline.

A floral dress like this one (similar) doesn’t need much adornment. I added the pendant created by the gorgeous Suzanne Carillo, and a vintage bracelet from Bella’s shop. Tan cowboy style boots (sim) and red lipstick, and done.

My friend, you’re far from being a hippie, dippie chick, I assure you. What you are is a confident woman who knows what works for her personality and figure, and looks poised ALL the time 🙂 someone who clearly subscribes to comfort as well as style. And speaking of style, guess what?? I’ve just created my first ever link-up and it would mean ever so much to me if you’d come over and join, Patti. You know I have the utmost regard for you xoxo
I saw this on you and thought, oh, you and Vix and Suzanne! A happy trio. Great dress, and I’ve been seeing lot of dark florals around. I just made it. Whew!
Oh, and Curtise in there too.
There’s some dream outfits here this week
I just love this dress and how gorgeous you look in it, Patti! Soft and feminine and so pretty! (PS. Sorry I’m late… But I’m here!) xxx
Love vintage floral print maxis! It is hard to envision 80s clothing as now being vintage, but alas, it is true. And the neckline and that ruffle across the bodice adds such a flattering feminine touch. You also accessorized it beautifully!
I love a flowy floral dress, of course! This is very pretty on you, and the cashmere wrap,every since I got the lilac one from purple poppy, i wanted a diff color! Love yours.
Old Hippie doesn’t describe your look! You might be re-visiting a few elements of classic bohemian styling but definitely with contemporary flair. I love the tan accents too. You’re looking fabulous these days. XXOO
Love me some hippy stile, and this dress is fabulous, love it on you Patti ! Kisses

There is nothing better than having a dress you can just throw on and feel put together and add the floral feminine touch and its a perfect dress. Although I don’t see anything “granny” about it. But then again, I asked my hubby just the other day if the outfit I was wearing made me look like a grandma and his quick response, “you are a grandma” haha, put me in my place. I’m also laughing at your bundled up 60 degree winter. When it reaches 60 here, we throw on our shorts.
Well, I’m all for having a dress you can throw on and feel great in so thumbs up from me. Add a necklace and a slash of lipstick and you’re ready to face the world with confidence. You look beautiful, Patti.
So pretty and sooo over sized, my my.
This looks so very pretty and comfortable.
Wow…it’s cold down your way! (wink)
So much to be said for the ease of a maxi dress, especially one that is floral and flowy!
Love it! Thank you for hosting Patti!
These are awesome! I love that you did paper piecing for the country scene, I had coedesirnd it and love seeing it in action! That urban one is awesome!, Love the red spray paint! Awesome work!
I love you in maxi length – last week’s skirt and this week’s dress are two of my favourite outfits of yours ever! xxx
I think you look fabulous in this dress!!!
A lovely dress! Very feminine and probably looks so pretty when you walk 🙂
And I’m loving those Toms Embossed tassel booties in your shop post ! xoxo
That kind of dress never goes out of style! And that vintage bracelet with it is perfection!
Simply gorgeous! I love what the neckline does for the dress, super flattering in the way it flows and lays. Great find!

Such a pretty floral dress! I remember these dresses and prints from back in the day – it seems funny to think of anything from the 80’s being vintage. 🙂
I can see why you feel terrific in this dress because you just look beautiful in it. Kirsten xx
You are seriously rocking this boho-inspired look Patti – Have a great week ahead!
That dress reminds me so much of one I had in the early 90’s and makes me really wish I would’ve kept it! Looking gorgeous, Patti!
great dress! i love a good flowy outfit 🙂

Great dress Patti – there’s something a bit ’90s grunge about it to my mind! Have a super duper week xx

Another lovely party, my dear friend.

This is a nice and comfy look! Beautiful dress and beautiful you, Patti!
It’s a lovely dress and perfect styling! You look great in red lipstick, Patti!
Patti, I love the cowboy boots! You look wonderful in that dress with those boots. I like to pair cowboy boots with skirts and dresses also.
You could rock a festival or boho party with the best of them! Great outfit, and I’m glad you’re keeping warm down there.
I love those nude boots. And oversized dresses are so in, right now.
You look rather Jane Austenesque in that beautiful dress! It looks the perfect fit to look gorgeous but be comfy as you said!!!xx
What a lovely flowy dress, Patti! You look utterly comfortable, and effortlessly chic! I’ll be linking up soon! Thank you again for hosting!
Very pretty dress. Also love the gorgeous hair. xo
You look lovely in a boho look, it really suits you! Gorgeous dress! 🙂
I love that style too!
Such a great dress! It suits you beautifully.
I love a dress that you put on and feel great! You look fabulous in the dress! The necklace is perfect with it and so is a wrap when it gets a bit cool(ish).
You don’t look old at all…a young hippie! Thanks for the link up as always!
I’m an even older hippie, Patti! You look great!
Love this dress! So pretty.
You’re right about dresses feeling right, Patti – they’re the easiest thing in the world to style! Love your maxi, the pattern is so pretty 🙂
Thank you for hosting, see you tomorrow at #iwillwearwhatilike!
This style is great on you Patti. I love the hippie trend too.
I love the simplicity of this dress. It looks comfortable yet so stylish. You look beautiful!!
It’s a pretty dress, reminds me of of the early 90s… OGM, if that’s ‘vintage’, how old does that make me?!?
“Raw 60 degree weather”? LOL!
I love how you’re wearing vintage and pieces from 40+ bloggers in different states! Beautifully put-together and stylish, as always 🙂
Yes, I agree – I love a roomy, ethereal, floaty dress. A great, no-fuss way to get dress, yet still look wonderful. As you do, Patti.
