Blast from the Past

Flower Child Power

The ’70’s are back in style and we couldn’t be happier about it!

The 1970’s have such good, down-to-earth vibe that pretty much anyone can pull it off. There’s no need to go full blown hippie either – a dress in a floaty material, a wide brimmed hat, or an accessory with some fringe can add a little boho touch without going overboard.

 

This fantastic semi-sheer floral full length Flower Child dress is available in the shop right now and it’s giving us all the feels!!

Some suggestions for adding 70’s to your wardrobe:

  • Crochet pieces – a cute crochet tank top or sweater is a nice touch.
  • Plunging neckline
  • Suede suede suede – boots, coat, or dresses
  • Mini-skirts – show off them legs, baby
  • Layers and layers of patterns
  • Chunky, funky accessories

The 70’s were all about freedom of movement, owning your sexuality, and having fun!

Bad Housewife Chronicles #2

Betty always makes sure she is perfectly coiffed and looks attractive when her husband arrives home late at night.  She is always up and waiting for him with a big smile and a prepared cocktail.

Whether he was held up in a work meeting or stayed out playing poker with his pals, Betty stays up until he arrives home.  She understands that her husband wants her to look sexy no matter how much she cooked, cleaned, and wrangled kids that day.

The Bad ’50’s Housewife

The year is 1954.  Betty is a housewife living in suburbia.  She’s been married for several years when her mother-in-law gives her a pamphlet titled “The Good Wife’s Guide”. Betty is shocked and offended that her mother-in-law thinks that she needs advice on how to keep a nice home and keep her husband happy!  After a quick perusal, Betty decides that she does everything that the pamphlet suggests a good housewife should do!

Betty sets out to prove to her mother-in-law AND her husband just what a good wife she is!

Betty always keeps fresh flowers and live plants in the house.  

She wants her husband to return to a home that smelled fresh and clean every night!  She takes great care of her plants and makes sure that they receive love and attention every day.  She never forgets to water them.
