I’ve always admired bloggers and stylists who attempt to turn a dress up on its metaphoric head. Seemingly not literally but most unconventionally, by utilising a much loved design and recreating it for more or less practical means. For example styling and converting such a piece into the appearance of a skirt with the accompaniment of an oversized sweater. Or by reshaping said dress into a top. Much like what I’ve created with this folklore dress from Zaful.
Something in which I opted to remodel to adapt for a slightly cooler day, all on a whim, but a success nonetheless.
To say I am besotted with the vibrant scarlet hue and paisley type print of this dress is an understatement. Festival vibes and bohemian bewitchment make for the ultimate folklore top. That mix of contrasting reds and cyans in its florals make for an ideal accompaniment with my mules (similar version here). This ever so bright and resplendent (now) folklore top has also been quite the talk of town. Being undeniably unique and fetching, people can’t help but feel compelled to it by its placid charm. Receiving the abundance of compliments left and right, and intrigue over such a unique print and appreciation for a modernised approach and take on seventies folklore prints. One I believe would be ever so fitting for a weekend at Woodstock. Or for Coachella, which is currently mere weeks away.
