Visible Monday #134: I’m In A Festival Mood

Welcome to Visible Monday #134! If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the how-to. Please be kind and leave a link to Not Dead Yet Style in your post.

I’ve been having a yen for these 90’s dresses – long, floral and simply made. They were called “Granny Dresses” for a while, now they’re “Festival,” “Hippie,” or “Grunge” dresses, according to my eBay searches. I found this pretty dress at Bella’s Etsy shop, and it’s my favorite.

I prefer dark floral prints like this one. I love the sweetheart neckline and ankle length. I don’t need to accessorize it much, because it has personality. I added just a vintage locket and old GAP belt, and my Kenneth Cole wedge sandals. Bring on the festival, I’ll have a spiked lemonade.

Nothing better than a swingy, easy floral frock, especially from Citizen Rosebud’s.

Although so much better because a Beatle was there! lol I had a few cold brews and such a good time :o)

  21. You look fab! I wish I could see your sandals a little clearer – have they got fluffy bits at the front?

  28. The dress looks great on you! Bella has a wonderfully curated shop. I'm digging the 90s look too. Just wish I'd kept my dresses from that era.

  29. I LOVE these dresses! It's wonderful to see how the dress suits both of you in entirely different ways. I think we need to start a linkup of sorts with that theme in mind!


  30. You and Bella bring your own unique style to the dress! And yes these "granny dresses" are the dresses you were at Coachella these days!

    Thank you for hosting the link-up Patti! I'm hosting an eShakti $50 Gift Card Giveaway, hope you can join!

  32. I absolutely adore granny dresses. They're so proper and lady like. I'm always on the hunt for a cute one, like the one you're wearing. Love it.

  33. Hi Patti, That dress from Bella's easy shop looks so cool, boho chic. Pretty locket too. I linked up. Thanks.
