One of my favorite things about fashion is how it's all a cycle. Trends and fads come and go, but every so often, a style starts to reappear again, always modified in some way, but still reflecting the root of it's origin. And incase you haven't noticed, I am a fan of the 70's. The giant sunglasses that cover half your face, the loose and carefree vibe, I just love all of it.
Lucky for me the 70's are making a loop back around on the fashion spectrum, but of course, not without modifications. My sunglasses are from this amazing Australian brand, Quay, which I recently learned while down in L.A. that it is not pronounced "kway" but "key." Apparently the word is used all over Ireland, interesting facts there.
Now, knowing that satin and metallics were a thing of the 70's I definitely had to put this metallic-y velvet skirt to good use. Speaking of good use, my mom was going through all of her old jewelry, and found a bolo tie she used to wear back in high school. I can assure you that I will be getting some good use out of it.
With modification, I still can't let go of a little authentication. The shoes in this shoot are authentic from the 70's. Of course, they were thrifted from none other than Urban X Change. To be honest, they're actually a size too big for me, but I loved them so much I got them anyways and figured out a way to make them fit, I just twist the back strap a few times to make it tighter and it totally works!
I hope this post has inspired you to go pull out your treasures from the 70's or for those who didn't live through the 70's, to go start dabbling in the past!
