My 70's Show

Saturday, February 2, 2013

This outfit is what I like to call a happy accident. I have a plethora of clothing, as you can imagine, but sometimes when I walk into my closet it feels like I have nothing to wear. Are you familiar with that feeling? It's completely illogical, but I'm pretty sure every woman feels that way at some point or another. When I stumbled upon this outfit, I was trying to grab something to run errands in and take my pups to the dog park (heels and the dog park, I know, stupid.. don't worry I put flats on later). Anyways, I view every outing (and every time I do my hair) as an opportunity for a blog post. So, this particular day I stepped into my closet and nothing was speaking to me. I would see a top and then couldn't imagine what would work with it, then I would find a skirt, and couldn't find a top to go with the proportions, yada, yada, yada.

Then, I saw this white and chambray blouse just staring at me. I've had this blouse for over a year and I have never worn it! The problem with this blouse, is that it has a draw string and it flares at the bottom. The shirt is just too long and awkward for my body proportions. I have big hips and a long flowy shirt makes me look wider, thus why I've never worn it. I started thinking though, if I tucked it into a pair of high-waisted trousers it would be a total 70's flashback. I don't have any high-waisted trousers (shame on me), but I do have these Mossimo mid-rise ones... so I'm working with what I got dammit.

Long story, long, I came up with this little 70's inspired look. And.. I got to show off my newest score, my Michael Kors bag. I have a big fat crush on Michael Kors, he sure knows how to dress a lady! I paid twenty bucks for that $358 gorgeous leather satchel... that's a 94% discount!!! Definitely one of my best deals to date!

Wow. That's quite a Goodwill you have there! I have yet to get lucky at thrift stores. I go in looking for awesome vintage clothing to give new life to, and I come out with 4 paperback books that I'll get around to reading eventually instead.

"Long story long" -- good one! I'll remember to use that one day, haha.

And the belt is so nice! Hollister has great belts. I have a similar one from there from my teenage years that I can't bring myself to part with even though it barely fits anymore. It's just so thick and brown (I realize how that just sounded)! You don't find leather belts like that anymore. Not that they are leather. I don't think they are, but they look it and that's good enough for me.
