There’s not a whole lot I love more right now than matching skirts and crop top sets. (Fashion-wise that is- I mean, I’m still pretty fond of my family, friends, and pets.) And believe you me, I would never, ever, ever have thought that would ever be the case. Let me just re-emphasize that fact…NEVER. 5 years ago if someone told me I would soon be in love with loud 70s prints and colors in MATCHING SETS, I just would have fallen over laughing- probably literally, as I tend to lose muscle tone when I laugh way too hard, but that’s really neither here nor there.
I know I’m not alone here when I say I would have shuddered at the thought of prints like these:
and suits like these:
. . .ever making it back into play in fashion. But it was inevitable, right? Each decade makes at least one revival in each subsequent decade in fashion, so I knew it would happen sooner or later. I just didn’t know I’d like it so much. Although, it is one of those trends I wonder if people who don’t study what’s going on in fashion and live their lives on Pinterest, like I do, will appreciate. I live in Indiana, so we don’t go for the most outlandish of new fashions, but those of us who appreciate fashion generally stay pretty well in the loop, so I don’t care frankly. I can’t wait to finish this set and wear it out. I know people who love fashion for what it is will recognize when I’m on trend and hopefully what I design is still more tasteful than trendy, so at least people who don’t know or care what’s IN or OUT will think it’s pretty.
