Recipe: That 70s Outfit
One of my main style inspirations is a very specific scene in Dazed and Confused in which a group of girls, preparing for their night out, have to lie down flat on a bed in order to have their super high-waisted jeans zipped up with a pair of pliers. Genius! I love high-waisted jeans for all that they represent in fashion, mainly a celebration of a woman’s natural curves. These jeans suit my body type perfectly. They accentuate my waist and are sexy while still allowing me to be a lady. In the spirit of Dazed and Confused, I paired them with a vintage crocheted top that I imagine was worn by a very tiny hippie once upon a Woodstock.
