Trending: Amish

Posted By on Tue, Sep 18, 2012 at 8:00 AM

New York Fashion Week is over and London has begun, so forward-thinking fashion is on everyone's brain.

But instead of scouring the fashion sites for the best things off the runway, we stumbled upon something totally not forward-thinking, yet totally awesome: Amish chic.

Pleasure Dome — though it sounds like a place to buy handcuffs and edible panties — is a virtual showroom offering collections of vintage and one-of-a-kind pieces. Their first collection gives love to all things Amish. We're talking about dresses and home decor from the '60s and '70s. How hot is this dress?

Scrolling through this capsule collection, I became nostalgic for some similarly dressed ladies who were big fashion influences on me as a kid.

Oh, Anne of Green Gables. You're never going to get Gilbert if you keep dressing like him.

The Ingalls girls from Little House on the Prairie rocked that hipster prairie look like no other.

And they had to deal with this bitch all the time.

Don't fear the Amish style, friends. It's the closest thing to godliness.
