Fashion Intersections



Today I am equal parts - Lauren Bacall, Debra Winger and my mom in like, 1980. I love how you can meld time periods in fashion and how it melds itself. For instance, the 1970s saw a big revival of the prairie-style, whole Gunne Sax thing and actually that seems have made it's way back yet again. I love how in the 1980s there was a very distinct harkening back to he 1940s. I think this outfit reminds me of that. The high waist denim which is both 40s and late 70s-early 80s, the puffed shoulders on blouses, and the platform shoes. I decide Ella was timeless and she needed to make it into the shot. She looks like she wasn't too into it, but don't let her fool you, she was.

And THIS is why I love the 70s. And the 40s. And I agree with the other 2 comments - that top rocks.
