Playing Dress Up

Vintage sequin cardigan & belt, Queen's Wardobe dress, Seychelles boots, Spanish Moss Vintage head piece
The seventies is one of my favorite era's, all the free love, long flowing hair, and disco dresses! One of the biggest reasons I am drawn to the seventies is my mother. She looked so beautiful with her crop tops, bell bottoms and long blonde hair. In this outfit I was channeling my mother. These new sunglasses from Forever 21 are a exact replica of a pair my mother had growing up. Also, this gold head piece from Spanish Moss Vintage (a great store for 70's style) helped me get her look (although my mother often wore flowers). After playing dress up I decided I want more pendant necklaces and vintage rings for my upcoming birthday. Luckily, House of Harlow 1960 (article here) has two amazing pendant necklaces that I have been drooling over! 
I did not make "Style Icon" this month and although initially I was disappointed I thought about the readers and fans I have and felt lucky to have you all and that bottom line that is what matters. It can be hard not to get distracted by contests and competition and forget why you started doing this in the first place. So, thank you for all the support and I love you!

Dylana said...

Hey Taylor! Had fun catching up on all your earlier posts now that I have steady internet going where I am at! I am loving all your outfits and pictures. Makes me miss blogging regularly from home! So funny that you are mentioning the 70's in this post because I spent all last night pouring over images of my mom and aunt in 70's London. I wish they saved their clothes so I could wear them all now!

The Sound of Lace said...

I love that headband, you channel the 70's well!
