I call this my Neil Diamond jacket. When I wear it, I get a lot of stares. Some people don’t know what to say because it’s so loud, so Las Vegas. Here’s how I take a jacket that may be considered tacky, and make it ultra-cool (well, in my opinion). It’s vintage, I say late 70’s, maybe 80’s. I’ve worn this to school drop-off and nearly tripped down the driveway, bell bottoms and wedges take serious walking skills.
I’m a lover of a denim suit, all different shades and years, from new to old. Shredded tank is from Intermix, www.intermix.com High waisted pants, can be flattering when you want to show a sliver of skin – no one can tell if the skin is flabby, it’s an eye trick.
Learn from my mistakes, wear higher heels with bell bottoms or hem them. I’m lazy and unless someone comes to my house to hem my clothing, I never do it – or I wait until I have an event the next day, and I’m in desperate mode. Wide leg/bell bottoms are from Free People, www.freepeople.com
This clutch was a gift from my mom’s friend, most likely from the 70’s. I see them all over these days – grab them when you see them at flea markets or Goodwill.
Even though I have long legs, skinny jeans look better on me. I love a flattering pair of bell bottoms, but sometimes I feel like it’s too much – almost like I’m wearing a costume. That’s why mixing this Neil Diamond like jacket, makes this look less costume party and more about personal style – or maybe I’m just cheesy!!
I’m thinking I should make these cut offs, kind of loving how these Free People jeans fit from behind. Not because I look so great, but the way the butt is designed, makes it flattering for most bodies. As you girls know, this is not always the case when trying on jeans. Any jeans that are baggy and comfortable, make your butt look non-existent – believe me, I know – I’m wearing a pair now.
