More 70's Inspiration

I apologize for the boring-ness of these photos but I hope the cute-ness of the outfit will make up for it.

I got this dress last week from a thrift store. When I got it it was a too-short-for-me-maxi-dress but I cut off the ruffle and I rather like the look now.

I think this dress is very reminiscent of teh 1970's. Usually I'm not at all inspired by that time period, but this spring I've been really liking it - if only elements of it. I wished this jacket was cropped, though - I think it would have looked better. I might cut this one off sometime, but my mom said she wishes she had a jacket like it, so I feel bad wanting to cut if off, even though I think it would look awesome.

Even without the cropped jacket, I'm still really happy with how this outfit looked, and with how much vintage and/or thrifted pieces there are. Nearly %50 of this outfit is either from the thrift store or vintage. I've really been trying to buy/wear more indie, vintage, and thrifted clothes. It's so much more quaint and old fashioned. Especially when one alters the thrifted clothes!

Outfit Details:
Dress - Thrifted
Tights - Simply Vera by Vera Wang (Kohls)
Sandals - Merona
Cardigan - Vintage
Denim Jacket - Thrifted
Belt - Charlotte Russe
Sunglasses - Forever 21 via my big sister, Heather

  2. I like this outfit, I like the dress a lot. it is very cute with the lace at the top and the puff sleeves. It looks really nice with the jacket but I agree, I think it would be cute with a cropped jacket but it also looks really nice with the long one. But I think the belt just made it perfect. I love that belt, it is a nice color and has such a cute large bow on it 8-D
    Post again soon!!!
    Love,

  5. I love the little bit of lace around the collar :) Looking great!

    My jeans jacket same as yours is on it's last legs.. I can't seem to find one in that cut to replace it at all though. Might be easier to find another to crop and keep this one for another time?
