I just saw the movie, Taking Woodstock, tonight. I loved it! I loved how mellow everyone was, how cool and groovy everyone seemed, nothing phased them (okay, I admit the drugs did help!) I also liked knowing the real story behind Woodstock, especially how it transformed the family in the movie. I can definitely see myself as a hippie chick. Well, I was! I lived a portion of the 70's, the flared jeans, flared sleeves and my favorite, the long skirts. After seeing this movie it made me want to re-familiarize myself with the hippie fashion. I used to wear those long skirts with small white tees even in the 80's. Even made some of my own long skirts myself. My dad used to always say "Michelle, you have a strange style." I was totally fine with it. I loved being different. In any event, the other day I got one of those long cotton, spaghetti strap dresses (green with off-white squiggly design) with the elasticized bodice and long flowing skirt that goes all the way down to my ankles. I can see myself wearing it with a jean jacket and flip flops. In fact, I will! :)
Here are a few styles I love from the 70's.
