 Spring’s Flights of Fancy… Butterflies

MOD COROCRAFT BUTTERFLY PIN from Metro Retro Hello Fashion Diggers!

Soar to new fashion heights with one of the hottest trends for the spring…butterflies. Go back in time and journey to the FashionDig site for vintage butterflies from the past.

Try the butterfly motif with a touch of the Far East for summer. AnniePanties has a Kay Windsor soft jersey dress from the 70s. This soft 70s jersey dress has a tiny Mandarin collar and capped sleeves with a field of ivory as a background for butterflies frolicking by flowers in hues of orange, green and brown.

Celebrate the beauty of butterflies fluttering around flowers with a Lilly Pulitzer sleeveless dress that has a stunning white floral embroidery design in the front that is contrasted with the warm hues of yellows, oranges, reds and pinks from Orlando Vintage. You might prefer the Lilly Pulitzer knee-length patchwork skirt that is adorned with butterflies, lions, tigers, seahorses, fish and flowers done in a fun, refreshing color palette.

If you prefer to wear a touch of butterflies, try some accessories that will make your heart go all a flutter. At Mid Century Chic, you will find a chic preppy tote done in off white burlap and decorated with butterfly and roses appliqués. A tortoise plastic handle adds an element of surprise to this ode to nature handbag.

Have your imagination explore the numerous possibilities of vintage butterfly costume jewelry and wear them this season on hats, dresses, shirts, suits, jackets, pant pocket or in your hair. Shop Metro Retro for the ultra MOD Corocraft butterfly pin or bring a little sparkle and shine with a filigree butterfly that is embellished with rhinestones.

Celebrate the coming of spring by letting your spirits rise and take flight with the butterfly vintage phenomenon.
