Indian Wrap Skirts


A selection of Indian wrap skirts at Stella Dallas, NYC.

I’ve always loved Indian wrap skirts from the 70s. They’re made of that thin, soft cotton that feels like it’s been washed forever (but is actually just finely loomed) and they look great with a tank and flat sandals or over a bathing suit…or as I like to wear them, dressed up a bit. Don’t be lazy and buy them at Free People for $128 when vintage ones are widely available for around $25. And don’t forget to appreciate the variety of prints, which to me are works of art.

About Elisa Casas

ELISA CASAS (that’s me) was born and raised in New York City. I have a BFA in Photography from NYU and worked as a photojournalist and talent scout for major record labels before opening Chelsea Girl in 1993. I also owned Laurel Canyon Vintage, Clutch! and a popular cafe, City Girl Cafe, and I starred in the groundbreaking Sundance series, “Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys” with my best friend, David Munk. I like pomegranates, clouds, “Exile on Main Street,” birthdays, ancient ruins, the beach, abstract art, cypress trees, “Annie Hall,” old diamonds, Almodovar, clam shacks, surprises, Anne Boleyn, popcorn, “Rebecca,” margaritas, pugs, apple pie and castles in Spain. I live in TriBeCa with my fashionable daughter, Ruby. Follow Chelsea Girl on Facebook- and Instagram-ChelseaGirlVintage
