A few weeks ago, I shared this Purple Crochet OOTD and spoke about the major revival of the 1970’s that is happening in fashion. Today I continue my coverage of the flower child craze that has taken over fashion for Spring. From fringe to suede vests to high-waisted, belled pants, the 70’s are in full-swing!
My take on the trend today includes several 70’s staples: leather vests, high-waists, floral maxi-dresses, long and over-sized statement necklaces, and knee-high go-go boots. My contemporary take on these retro staples combine into a perfect look for a night out on a spring weekend in New York City. I love the floral print and flow-ing skirt of my high-waisted maxi-dress.
My accessories all feature tones of green and glints of gold. My vintage, lasso-style necklace makes a statement when paired with the over-sized earrings. The earrings are from the 1980’s and remind me of the leaves on a palm. I also wearing one of my favorite rings: a vintage unicorn ring from Screaming Mimi’s Vintage in NYC. My hunter green, lizard-skinned purse is vintage Gucci from the 1970’s; I think it looks like a chic explorers bag that might hold a pair of binoculars inside. My knee-high boots are yet another statement accessory. I am obsessed with their perfect green hue and avant-garde ruffled detailing that almost look like vines crawling up my leg.
