KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend, and welcome to Friday Finds! Today it's all about holiday hostess gifts. It about the time when you may have several seasonal parties and functions to attend, and you should never show up empty-handed. The best hostess gift should be something just for the hostess that he or she can use at a later time, either for entertaining or just for themselves. Just because you may have been assigned a side dish or drinks, you should still being along a special hostess gift.

A hostess gift doesn't need to cost a lot. They can range anywhere from $10-$25, and really should be on average $20. There are so many appropriate options in this price range - anything from a set of tea towels to a cookbook, or something gourmet, or even a little bath and body gift. If you need a hostess gift for a party or dinner this holiday season, you can't go wrong with one of the picks below.


This first one is my favorite, because it's a versatile multi-use item, and it's so chic. …

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!
