The seventies are back

And the great thing about being a vintage lover? You can go straight to the source of the trend. Not through time travel, mind you. But through clothes that traveled through time and into your closet.


If I were still in the desert I’d wear this vintage embroidered tunic with denim cutoffs and flat boots.


But I’m back in Vancouver now so I’m wearing it with jeans, a jacket and a giant umbrella.


I miss the desert.

P.S. One of my very favourite bands from Coachella is coming to Vancouver. Phantogram plays Venue on May 20th.

    I love the embroidery on that top.
    It also looks like you had a blast in Palm Springs.
    So glad I found you. xo Mish

    Oh dear, you are in major trouble here darling! That tunic was quite possible made for you to wear in the desert… not so much our lovely (but wet!) weather here in Van. I see a roadtrip in your future! The colours are amazing.
