Apparently, I'm having a little love affair with the 70's right now. Or, atleast that's what my most recently thrifted finds are telling me. I really didn't know. First, there's Adelaide's jacket, which I love beyond belief, and am pretty sure I had one just like it. Then came my own jacket - the brown completely polyester piece of goodness that it is. LOVE that jacket. And then it all got topped off at a recent church rummage sale when I stumbled across one of my dreams turning into reality (I am truly a dork). There were boxes of brand new vintage clothes from a clothing store that had closed, presumably in the early 8o's (late 70's, early 80's - it's all the same to me. I was, only like four, you know). Where have they been all this time? I do not know - fodder for another dream, perhaps. Anyway...corduroy heaven. That's where I got the tan wide-whale corduroy wrap around skirt above (also here). And um, five more just like it in all sorts of colors and fabrics. I know, it was so terribly greedy and selfish of me (sorry fellow Portland thrifters! I'm sorry!), but I could not stop myself from snatching them all up at 25cents a piece. And I kid you not that they have been in rotation in my wardrobe ever since. All of them. Every Day. (Along with my newfound contemporary love of Smartwool knee highs.)
So, apparently. I love the 70's. Oh my. Who knew.
