My Vintage Style-70s Indian Print Wrap Skirt

70s Indian print wrap skirt

Lately one of my favorite things to wear in summer are 70s Indian wrap skirts. I love the bohemian vibe, the colors and unique prints. The cotton fabric is soft and comfortable.

I wore this outfit for a warm-ish summer day walking around Boston with a friend who had come into town for a visit. But I could easily see the skirt paired with boots, sweater and a suede jacket, as the colors would transition nicely for fall.


Owls are so cute and what could be better than one owl, but two? Recently thrifted this adorable vintage owl brooch and since owls were a big design element in the 70s, I thought it needed to be part of this outfit.

Another of my recent thrift finds was an Eric Javits Squishee purse. In perfect condition, it looked like it was never used.  And I was instantly attracted to the  bronze woven material. The metallic weave and the double ring links on the braided handle add interest to the simple design . The $18 price was the clincher, though! If you are familiar with his bags,you’ll know this was a serious bargain.

    I know, Jess. Couldn’t believe the perfect condition of the purse, for that price. And I’m anxious to try the skirt with some boots to see how it looks for fall. As far as owl brooches, I’m now on the hunt for more. They’re so cute, aren’t they?

    I wasn’t familiar with that designer either when I saw the bag. It is actually a modern purse. I Googled it on my phone before I purchased and saw how much his bags sell for. That’s when I realized how much of a bargain it was!

    Lovely skirt and bag! I don’t know that brand. I’m not nearly as well versed in vintage as you are.

    This print reminds me a bit of the batik skirt I was wearing on my block recently. The whole outfit looks very cool boho and comfy.

    Thanks, Vix. And, yes, I’m aware there are new ones that look very close to the vintage ones. I usually looks for a vintage label to be sure. Otherwise, it is suspect. If I can’t tell for sure, I’ll buy. But not pay vintage prices!

    You look fabulous, you can’t beat a block print! I love Indian wrap skirts but be warned, the vast majority you see listed as vintage aren’t – they’re still produced in India today – I bring a pile back every year! xxx
