I have Interviewed myself twice and now that you know me, I think it's important to try my interview skills on someone else.This is not ordinary person however today I am interviewing a creator of a brand I hold dear to my heart.
To all my hip cats and cool daddyo's this is for you! There is a saying "there is nothing new under the sun", which is so true especially in fashion which pretty much is cycle. Even though we are smack-dab middle of the 2010's we are obsessing over all things vintage. This year we are totally submerged in the 70's.From rompers to fringe ,suede, stacked heels, skinny ties and the list goes on of major funky style that has made its way back into our closets or there for the 1st time. Mini dresses have stood the test of time and definitely elongate the legs.
Since the days are getting cooler, add some funk to your look with over the knee socks and stacked heel for supa fly style! Button downs ,whether long or short, are a classic that can be worn a million ways. I decided to pair a button down with my mini denim jumper, and added a skinny bowtie as the perfect accessory. Fedoras have made their way into many closets this year ....including yours truly. Hats are a great way to 'top' off a look and make a bold statement. There are many styles of hats to fit any fancy. Personally, I'm pretty obsessed with all of them right now! (*cue "I aint got not type" ) No outfit is complete without a nice bag to flaunt. Buckets bags are so on trend right now, ranging from minis to back packs, and even bigger styles. Fall is the perfect time to definitely add textures into your look so I decided my suede mini bucket bag would fair nicely. My lucky rabbit's foot keychain meshed well with the retro them. Vests are wonderful layering piece that can add both dimension and different textures to your look. They can also elongate the torso too (make sure not to get a vest that cuts off your midsection)!
The lovely Chakayla Taylor of www.stylishlydecadent.com came through serving with a suede skirt accented by a fringe top and perfectly fitting head wrap...p.s. she is always slaying the head wrap game. Check out her blog for her full post and her instagram @stylishlydecadent. I hope you enjoyed this post and would love to see my readers Funky 70's inspired looks.
