|Ken Scott Floral Dress - Similar, Gap 1969 wide-leg jeans- Similar|
I hope everyone has had a great weekend, and maybe some of you are enjoying a long weekend. I am dedicating this week to vintage floral. To start off, I am sharing this vintage dress by Ken Scott, which was a find from the thrift store for a whole $1.99. So again I freaked out over this was a fabulous find, it has all original buttons and no rips or stains. After visiting NYC last summer, I found out vintage items in this condition can be very pricey. For an item to be vintage it doesn't have to have a specific year, but I often think of vintage as in era's. So, whenever you find a vintage item, you can check out on the Internet for information on the designer.
On Farfetch.com, is says that Ken Scott is the designer of modernity and color, the “fashion gardener” with eclectic personality. His art is made by peonies, roses, poppies, sunflowers, petunias, asters, morning-glories. A dazzling bloom of flowers and nature splashed on shirts, foulards, beach-jamas, swimsuit, shirt waists, and then on bags, luggage, textiles and articles for the home, in a luxury ance of creativity quite fitting for what would become one of the most extraordinary seasons in fashion, a style that marked the 1960’s, won cult status in ’70s culture. Considering that his items on this site start at $137 to $549, I got a great deal. One thing to remember is vintage sizing doesn't correlate to today's sizing, so make sure to try it on!
My favorite thing about vintage floral prints are the size and the color of the flowers. It's like your wearing a piece of artwork.One of my favorite characteristics are the covered buttons with the material, that's not a detail you see in today's clothing.
