That hippie freedom

1970s freedom...

After years of slim fit jeans, loose tops, minimalist lines it is so refreshing to see flares, platform shoes,  hippie boho maxiskirts and floral dresses flowing in the spring breeze..

But it not only about clothes and fine quality 1970s vintage- the time when clothes were made with quality fabrics and sewn well. Beyond the style, the world of 1970s is so appealing in many ways.. the freedom, the liberation, flower power, love, free love... community life, hippie festivals ...Wouldn't it be wonderful to set back the time and find yourself in the midst of universally loving longhaired hippies in the Woodstock festival?...just being you looking like you do, acting, thinking, behaving like you, without trying to be anything else but you, as a unique individual, creature in history.How often do we experience that freedom now-a-days? World is so full of expectations, visual expectations of how we should be, act and look? Those hippies back in the day got something right....They didnt care, they just were- what they are, who they are...Dressing up in the 1970s trend of 2016, we also may capture a bit of that freedom, and happiness?Virtage wishes you the best summer of love and freedom 2016!
