Original Vintage: So when listing this this dress it took me right back to a beautiful store in London back in the 1970’s, as I walked in I was faced with rows of the most beautiful floral print floor length maxi dresses. The floors were stripped oak boards the shop smelt of roses and there were baskets of flowers and pretty white cotton blouses petticoats and aprons I was in heaven it was the one of the first Laura Ashley shops in Sloane Square London it was beautifull. Well this dress is from this era.
