Since August is the start of back to school shopping, I thought about what is the first thing girls buy when it comes to school shopping. During my school days, the first thing I went for were a pair of great jeans. Which made me come up with the title “If I were A Student In The 70’s” because the 70’s were the best era for jeans.
If I were a student in the 70’s I think this outfit would be something that I would have worn during that era. The 70’s is one of my favorite decades. The music, the clothes, the politics. Everything about that era was just inspiring. I got this top from my favorite resale store in Brooklyn, which is ReDress NYC. I was immediately drawn to the pattern.
I love the vintage look it gives so I decided to go the extra mile and wear it with a pair of wide leg trouser jeans that I bought from Torrid last year. I added some purple chandelier style earrings and a cuff bracelet. After putting everything together all I could think was that it looked like something from the 70’s. All I needed was an afro.
All I was missing from this look was an extra platform on my shoes with a real fish swimming around, lol.
