Flares and Lace (vintage 70s jeans with a modern take)

Forever 21 lace bell sleeve top
Vintage bell bottoms
Rebecca Minkoff sandals
Dolce and Gabbana almond flower sunglasses
Mac Up the Amp lipstick
D&G wallet

Just before the leaves started to fall and not long before the snow fell, I took a trip to Lake Tahoe.  This was of course, months before this last trip to Tahoe (from the previous posts).  It was kind of a kiss goodbye to a long and beautiful summer.

It was late September and unusually warm throughout this visit.  Knowing I would be doing a lot of walking, I prepared my outfit.  I wore my lace crop top from Forever 21 and  comfortable flats.  I also wore these amazing flared jeans that belonged to my mother.  She bought them in the 70s.  They're so unique!  I'm really glad she decided to keep them for so long.  And I was overjoyed when she handed them down to me.

When I was walking down a busy street, some guy yelled out "Hey, the 70s called...they want their jeans back!"  I couldn't help but laugh with him.  I was also a little impressed that he knew the era my jeans were from.

Do any of you own any vintage pieces?  Any from the 70s?

    1. Hey buddy -- I just got a call from the musical's director: we both got the parts! Actually, you got the lead role and... I'm in the chorus. He said you shone like the sun and I... flickered like a dim lightbulb at the back of a refrigerator. Those theater-types!

  30. Nothing beats vintage AND family owned ! Great jeans, you're so lucky your mom saved them.
    I have a few vintage garments but they are from previous eras although lately I have been digging 80s blazer.
    Nicely done.

  38. Those jeans are awesome, what a unique pair! I really like them with the lace top.

    It's wonderful your mum kept something vintage you can still wear and enjoy today :) I have a few vintage pieces from my mum's wardrobe but not too many.
