Wild Thang

In case you missed it, the 70s is back baby and this S/S season has gone in full retro mode. Forecast shows signs of hipster wide-leg pants, groovy prints, funky suede and all sorts of good-vibes-boho-chicness.

For a modern interpretation of the 70s I paired my bold stripe button-up with a khaki green structured skirt - added a little fringe flair and topped it off with a pair of foxy sunnies and spiffy sandals.







Top: F21| Skirt: Missguided| Fringe purse: unbranded/old| Shoes: Zooshoo

This outfit was actually inspired by one of Alexander Wang's pre-fall looks that I tweaked a bit to make it more spring friendly. I really love it when I can piece together items I've had laying around to create a fresh new look. This shirt for example has been in my closet for atleast 3 years. NEVER WORN until this day. I bought this skirt online in October and when I received it I realized it along with all the other items I had purchased were ordered in the wrong size. I took it to the tailor but Im not too crazy about how it was altered so I will be taking it back for further adjustments -PETITE STRUGGLES!-. My shoes I actually just got in the mail and decided to take them for a spin and luckily I did not actually wear them out! You wouldnt believe the blisters I got on the back of my feet. My mom bought me padding for them so they will be more comfortable the next time I wear so hopefully I wont have to nurse any cuts after this. The fringe bag is actually a full length bag Ive owned for years, one of my favorites, that I folded to give a clutch vibe. I think I bought my sunnies from Urban Outfitters in 2009. Yes, OH-9 can you believe!?

Ain't mad at this blast from the past trend but I'm curious as to what your thoughts are on the 70s flashback?! Are you feeling it?

until next time

  2. Yes, Tanaka!! I feel it the 70's! I do!! And you have now inspired me to search in my closet for similar pieces to create 70's inspired looks. Shopping in our closets not only saves us money but it is also fun and creative. And I am now doing it more. I really love how creative you got with the bag. It is gorgeous! I can't believe you waited so long to wear that pretty retro top. I think the skirt looks amazing on you and together with the top it looks amazing. And did you say blisters??? I always tell myself when I wear uncomfortable shoes; no pain, no gain... until the blisters pop and start burning like crazy!!!! Then, I am like; Why did I spend money buying those shoes! But then I forget and I wear them again:-) Oh my!!!! Have a wonderful Sunday Tanaka! XOXO, Jeannette

  12. I love what you did with all those unlikely pieces. I can't believe this was the first time you've worn the stripy blouse. though. It's sooo amazing. You now know who to send it to if you don't feel like wearing it again ;)
