One Day at a Time
All of the above items may have appeared in previous posts, but I felt it was ok to take liberties with this one. Often times, I will only wear one item of my mom's combined with something contemporary that I own. But on this (rarely) grey, chilly day in Los Angeles, all I wanted to wear was a nice sweater and boot combo. As the outfit came together, I found that every item I reached for was vintage. Some of the pieces are mine that I have collected, and some are my mom's, but there is nothing in this outfit made after 1983. I have to say, I love the look. It harkens back to all the shows I loved as a kid (It's kind of Bonnie Franklin from one day at a time right?) And while I rarely do it, it felt kind of great to be in head to toe vintage.
Everything old is new again. I was thinking about that phrase, and so I googled it, and got the lyrics to a Peter Allen/Carole Bayer Sanger song....
I couldn't have said it any better myself.
