Me Too...

There is so much to be said on this subject, and speaking from experience, simply being able to hear other people's stories can have a huge impact on healing. So, yes, just the fact that women are speaking out, will in itself help other victims. So for this post, I am simply sharing my own stories. And of course the specific point of #metoo is to shed light on the magnitude of the problem. I don't know what the solution is, but I do hope that this helps in some small way, if only to help some of my readers to feel as if they're not alone, and that healing is possible.

Have you ever been sexually harassed or assaulted? Me too...

With the phrase "grab them by the pussy" reverberating since the presidential election (unfortunately) and new and disgusting details of the Weinstein scandal surfacing by the day, it is hard to keep anxieties at bay. It's difficult to watch the news or scroll through Twitter when just the words "rape" and "molest" …

That 70's Girl


It started with round-toe mod boots and faux fur vests. Then fringe completely exploded as one of the biggest must-have trends. Add to that button-front skirts, off-the-shoulder tops, and wide-brim suede hats; it's easy to see an overall look continuing to dominate. This 70s-inspired look is one of my favorites, as it has allowed the boho-chic trend that is usually only typical of summer continue into fall as one of the top trends of the season.

One of my favorites in the 70s trend is the lace-up top. It's a really sexy take on the 70s trend. A loose-fitting boho lace-up top is great over shorts or flare jeans, while a fitted solid lace-up top is perfect to tuck into a button-front mini skirt (another top trend for the 70s revival look).

While last year, the kick flare was popular, and before that the wide leg, this year the 70s flare has been reinterpreted in a cropped and only slightly flared version. Though I still highly recommend playing around with a wide-leg pair of jeans. Pictured: DL1961 Women's Joy High Rise Flare Jean (similar available here >)


 
My personal favorite part of the 70s trend is fringe. If those boots are a bit much for you, a simple fringed crossbody bag is an easy and cute way to add some boho-chic to your look. Pictured: Glamorous Black Studded Fringed Over The Knee Boots

Quick Tips for Wearing the Trend
  • Keep it modern with simple colors and prints.
  • Complete the look with a 1970s hairstyle - boho waves.
  • Pick boho pieces in black and other dark colors to keep the look more appropriate for fall and winter.
  • Keep jewelry simple with thin layered pieces like pendant necklaces, bangles, or stacking rings.
  • Transition your peasant tops into winter by layering on a faux fur vest.

  3. Great post! I loooove the fact that 70s fashion has become so prevalent, suede and fringing are my faves too. I'm also a bit obsessed with lace up tops/dresses and over the knee boots at the moment, as well as flares!
