Lately all I want to wear are caftans and maxi dresses. Unfortunately, almost all of my vintage frocks are of the mini variety. Yup...I pretty much have a closet FULL of teeny tiny 1960s tent dresses. But now I'm craving a longer hemline. Maybe it's living upstate? The proximity to Woodstock? I don't know.

I'm thinking something 2 parts Rhoda Morgenstern and 1 part Mrs. Roper.

  1. oh my gosh DO IT! when i moved in with a new housemate we didn't bond until we both wore muu-muus at the same time. your life will change. for the better.

  2. I am jealous of the "teeny" vintage dresses you have. I am always looking for dresses like that. Where did you find them?

  3. hmm...all sorts of places. i always get the best stuff at tiny little vintage stores that are off the beaten path. either in new jersey around where i grew up, places upstate ny where i live now, or tiny towns we pass through on tour. oh...and during the summer i hit up as many yard sales as humanly possible.
