Anna Sui Hippie Drug Rug Dress


I got this on ebay a while back for less than the price of an Anna Sui for Target dress, on sale. And I wonder if I had Sui Goggles? It is kind of... boho but also kind of... drug rug.

 
The material is burlap-like. And the embroidery seems better suited for a Phish concert than teaching. Still I wore it because when you get dressed at 6 am after going to bed at 2, any garment that is quick and easy to wear makes sense to you. What do you think? I am guessing this was from the 90s. And I'm kind of ok with that.

My mind wouldn't have run to drug rug without the suggestion.

Have we ever talked about how much I love your specs?

It's cute, not drug rug-ish at all. I love the flats you paired them with too.

Yeah, it's colorful but in a muted way. I think it's kind of awesome.

I like it. I think it has a little ethnic vibe, the colors are perfect for fall.

La Historiadora, thank you! I am not sure if we have. They are by a local Pittsburgh designer named Norman Childs and sold through Pittsburgh eyeglass retailer, Eyetique.

Overcaffeinated, thanks so much! I really coveted these flats for a while and was glad to find them for cheapish on ebay.

Cynthia, thank you! That is too sweet!

Desert Flower, I liked its ethnic vibe and didn't realize how dayglow the embroidery would be in person.
