Top, Wrap, and Skirt all by Worth New York, Vintage Boots, Vintage Celine Handbag, Oliver Peoples Sunglasses.
If there is a decade that I am drawn to, it is the 70’s. I was a teenager during the 70’s and so the music, fashion and culture are both familiar and comforting to me. Shag rugs, arc lamps and relaxed furnishings are how my mother decorated our home, and it seems it left its stamp on me in a very big way; my living room has a shag rug and arc lamp.
I definitely owned several pieces of plaid clothing, whether it was dresses, pants or skirts. Pairing these with warm knits and high boots were all the rage back then and, so it seems, today as well.
This outfit, by Worth New York, drew me in at first glance because it felt so retro to me. I love the weight of the skirt, which is perfect for a warm California winter, or a spring/fall East Coast day. But the pièce de résistance is the crisscross wrap. This is the most unique yet useful item of clothing that I purchased this year; Worth New York, you have done it again. My vintage brown suede boots and vintage Celine bag are the perfect compliment to the 70’s feel of the outfit. Moral of the story, don’t toss things simply because they are old….a new outfit can always use an old friend.
