WHAT I WORE | 1970s Does the 1930s


This is where my new 1930s inspired hair-do gets a little intimate with my Mary Tyle Moore Show watching. You see how these things happen? Rhoda traipses on the screen with her palazzo pants, Phylis with her big collars, while I sit here watching, with my short bob and love for crazy patterns. It all makes sense inside my head.

    I think you look great! Love the pants. You make me want to be brave with separates. Thanks for breaking my cardigan/dress rut.

    I definitely disagree about the pants; I think they’re very flattering! And I can only imagine how they move when you walk. I always like the outfit posts, but the texture and pattern in this one makes it one of my favorites!
