Description

Alot of people would say that Edie Sedgewick was a no good drug addict but despite all this i think shes was a very ‘groovy chick’ with the most fantastic dress sense. AND cause she got to hang out with Andy Warhol and apparently the great Bob Dylan. What i would give to raid her 60s wardrobe!

…and since i cant – i can only replicate it. this is one dress that she wore during the sixties and which was also worn by Sienna Miller in the Movie ‘Factory Girl’.

Pure mini dress love!
