I don't know where all this Throwback Thursday idea began but I decided to incorporate it into my blog, no I won't be showing embarrassing pictures of myself 15 years ago
maybe in the future. What I am trying to do is make use of that old saying "everything old is new again" and see what pieces I have that somehow resemble a piece from a different time.
I did grow up in the 80's and spent my teens in the 90's, so I thought it would be fun to style current trends that date from back then, styles that most of us bowed never to revisit and yet somehow they managed to sneak back in our closets.
For today's Inspiration, I have gone to a time before my age, but a time that we all loved very much the 70's. The bug eye glasses that replaced the cat eye shape from the 60's and 70's and a more modern take on bell bottom pants. Did you know that wide-leg trousers like mine where the origin of the bell bottom pants, or that they were originally used by sailors in the US Navy in the 1800's?
