When I saw this green fabric peeking out in one of the stuffed racks over at Atlantis Attic in Brooklyn my heart started to beat faster. As I discovered that this fabulous paisley print in an almost neon green and electric navy blue was a 1970′s long sleeved maxi gown I was jumping for joy. The model reminds me of one of my favorite vintage maxi gowns – this one, and just like that favorite this one was also luckily long enough for me (my constant maxi gown problem!). It had just been shortened with very loose stitches that gave me at least 4 more inches once I let the hem down.
I’m planning on wearing this dress to some holiday parties this year, even though it has a slightly tropical feel to it I think the long sleeves and turtleneck does make up for that. With the right shoes and accessories it will be just perfect!
