This past weekend, after watching Dances with Wolves on TV, I found myself drawn to Native American costume and its influence on fashion today. Feathers on clothing/jewelry/hairpieces have been popular for a few years now, and I think it is one of the most beautiful ways to make a garment more interesting. Apparently the Native Americans did too, although theirs were more symbolic and less about aesthetic. I found these images on the amazing blog, Macaroni Club, and like myself, the writer seems to have a certain fondness for this type of dress as well. Here are some images to enjoy and inspire!
I'm not a huge Drew Barrymore fan, but love this pic! She is at Bonnaroo here.
