Made Well

So here it is, the last post from California (for a while, anyways) as promised!

This was actually the first shoot I did in these jeans a while back. My initial styling of them of course carried a weighty 70’s vibe, as shown here.

Obviously a flare jean is a nod to the past, but I find that a super wide leg looks almost costume-y in this day and age. That’s why I love this subtle interpretation of the trend – the mini-boot on these jeans lets you experiment a little, but on a jean you can keep for a long time.

Girl on the Run

I saw Thelma and Louise for the first time last week. It may or may not have influenced this outfit/shoot theme. You be the judge. I loved the movie, despite the abrupt and slightly disturbing ending… Though everyone I talked to was shocked at my reaction considering how famous the scene is. I’m trying really hard to not put out any spoilers right now, but needless to say, go see it if you haven’t!

As for the look itself, it’s really just a compilation of my favorite things. I of course returned to my favorite Canadian tuxedo, being majorly inspired by the style in the film. Then, I threw in my favorite booties, (which you’ve seen more than enough of by now), and then for a polishing touch, a button down blouse and a super cool skinny scarf fashioned as a neck tie.


This outfit is yet another nod to a former decade. Though inspired by an early 90’s film, the look drips with 70’s accents, from the colors, to the blouse, to the skinny scarf. The decade continues to provide versatile influences – the 70’s are everywhere, even if it’s not obvious.

New York Fashion week is in full swing and obvious elements of a particular decade are materializing in a multitude of collections.

The wonderful aspect of the 70’s influence on the Fall 2015 collections is that it strays from your typical free spirited, bohemian look. Rather, this Fall, the 70’s will be manifesting themselves in that classic, power female look that everybody falls in love with when they watch Ali MacGraw play Jenny in the 1970 classic “Love Story.”

Suits, coats, and capes in warm tones graced the runways this past fashion week in a glorious attempt to revive this forgotten but fabulous era in fashion.

Derek Lam explicitly cited Diane Keaton, Mia Farrow, and Katharine Hepburn as the muses for his collection this season, presenting us with his impeccable interpretation of said “New York Heroines.”

It looks like you won’t be able to miss the pressing influence of this past decade next fall, and I’m all for it. Essentials to get this look below:
