One Day at a Time

Vintage St.John sweater, Gay Boyer Belt, Frye Boots, Hermes Saddle Bag

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....

Don’t throw the past away
you might need it some rainy day
Dreams can come true again
When everything old is new again
— Peter Allen/ Carole Bayer Sanger

I couldn't have said it any better myself.
