TRUE VINTAGE SEVENTIES DOES FORTIES BLOUSE AND HIGH-WAIST PANTS

IMG_0849
Two finds from the 1970’s, put together perfectly.  I love the cute 1940’s vibe;  these pieces were made in the early 1970’s when that style was revived.  The shirt was from Sears Junior Bazaar and the slacks made by a company called Beeline. How fun!

The pants are long, so they’re great with platform sandals – another thing popular at that time – also part of the 1940’s retro thing.  As a true vintage sleuth, it’s so fun to watch how the styles go around and come around again.

TRUE VINTAGE EIGHTIES DOES FORTIES WIDE LEG PANTS

I’ve coveted and cherished the desire for more of these for quite some time – and here they are!  The color is not fushia, as in the photo, but a nice lipstick red and they fall to the ankle on me, as they should.

I just love how these “pants” (hard for me to think of them that way)  looked on Katherine Hepburn and Rita Hayworth back in the Forties.  The slim waists and hip-hugging cut is so flattering and the easy legs are so comfortable.

What a pleasure to discover them, and in my favorite RED.  I’m really on a roll with that!  Must be the spirit of the Holidays . . . . . . . . . . .
