I am not a fan of babydoll dresses in general, but this one spoke to me, as it is more of mixed media mini with a ruffle. Babydoll dresses, carefully selected, can be cute, especially when worn with pointy flats of flip flops. Mine is not backless , does not have cut outs or a deep v, like many of the babydoll dresses you see. Others like this, that I love, are here, here, and here.
This particular babydoll dress also looks like an A-line shift in mixed prints, so if you like this dress you can shop it, in those search terms, choosing a fit and length you like. Actually it is only the empire waist and ruffle that puts this dress in that category. Today, babydoll dresses are pretty generic: there is one for most everyone. They also look great over jeans or denim shorts. For the beach, you can choose one that is a bit sheer and lighter weight.
So what have you been celebrating recently? I hope it is many things at once! How do you feel about this 70's trend coming back and being re-imagined as a Boho staple in mixed prints and often times, embroidery or crochet.? Will you wear a version? : Let me know. You know how!
Oh, and by the way, my dress was $8.00 form LVIS in East Hampton! :)
