Vintage Vest

This vintage vest is unique, a bit obnoxious, and anything but ordinary. I haven’t braved to wear it to any of my classes or out in public yet, I just need some more time 😉 My friends have called me Pioneer Woman in it, and mentioned that some of the photos are fit for an “Explore North Dakota” billboard campaign. Regardless, this vintage vest is a gem, and I am bringing it to Milwaukee with me!

Meanwhile I am listening to Ophelia by Lumineers on repeat, binge watching Girls at night, and waiting to register for my Accounting class. Happy Wednesday!

 

A Date with the 70’s

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear “The 70’s”? Remember all the tie dye, the flower power, disco and platform shoes? The feminism, the end of the war in Vietnam? Led Zeppelin, Star Wars? First video games? The World Trade Center (the construction was over Dec.,23, 1970)? But I always think of That 70’s Show!

Jackie was definitely the best dresses one!

Speaking about fashion legends of the 70’s, I came across Marie Clarie’s (UK edition) top 10, and chose my top 5! You can find the other 5 here http://www.marieclaire.co.uk/fashion/best/3193/10/seventies-style-icons.html

Anjelica Huston

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jerry Hall

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

John Travolta

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Farrah Fawcett

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And Ali Macgraw

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And today I wanted to cover some 70’s fashion trends that I found in these magazines! (Old Soviet Magazines, these ones in particular, are from the Moscow Fashion House)

I wanted to show some prom dresses first, but honestly to me they look more like bridal couture. So if you are looking for some vintage wedding dress ideas, here are some for you. Of course they are more suitable for a summer wedding, because they are all knee-length.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pelerina became popular…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And so did the Poncho…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let’s not forget about men’s fashion

 

I also came across some women’s coats, that I found interesting…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Up next are some accessories, very often they came in sets – a necklace and a matching ring or bracelet…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here are some interesting every day outfits. Pay attention to the matching vest and shorts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My favorite florals… They became more graphic…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Paisley and similar patterns appeared…

Here is a close up of the pattern and the sleeve

Nautical theme was also very popular, but matched with these geeky glasses it looks a little bit ridiculous…

And finally – the RUFFLES!

Now, no post about 70’s is complete without some things that should stay in the 70’s and never come back, or become costume ideas!

Vintage Rain Boots

I found these in my grandma’s closet (so I am guessing they are either from the 70’s or the 80’s, I could’ve guessed the 60’s, but I don’t think they would’ve lasted this long), and first didn’t really know what they were, but then – DUH – it hit me – they were rain boots, just not the tall ones we are all used to, but ankle rain boots!

I love the little design on the front!

 

 

 

 

 

 

And the little heel!

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am definitely going to wear them today, because it’s raining!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now they are in great shape, and they are also fleece on the inside! Which makes them warm and cozy! Just my luck, that they were my size!
