Here I am in my "new" dress with my "new" bag. The shoes are Steve Madden from 2006.
I used to consider them old. Now, not so much.
The back is scooped, and the flowers are so bright and summery. I've always had a thing for flower power. My fascination with it started in 6th grade when I found a set of '70s flower stickers at a store in California. Shortly after that, the flower power look had a revival at Gadzooks, and I started wearing lots of bell bottoms and polyester flower power shirts. The clothes I wore to school back then are long gone, but the flowery Doc Martens and stickers remain. A few of the stickers ended up on my dressing table. The others are hanging in my old bedroom at my mom's house. The Docs are in the closet there as well. Apparently they had an effect.
