That 70s Bag

Sexy 70s disco siren vibes (smell like a winner with Joy Forever by Jean Patou, a brilliant retro scent)

When I was a kid I was surrounded by women who had their stylistic business together. From my grandmother to my mom to my cousins, I had women around me who could teach Vogue a few lessons. I also had an Aunt in New Jersey who wore and sold vintage. Thanks to these style mavens, I can go blindly into a thrift store, hold my hand out, and have an awesome item fly into my hand like Mjolnir. In this instance, it was a sweet leather clutch bag with a bronze, abstract shaped snap on the front flap.

Clutch bags, like this delicious caramel colored one above, actually came into being in the 20s, so you’d probably see a flapper carrying one. All the better to emphasize that jazz age freedom exemplified by dresses that let women flail about doing the Charleston. This is probably what endeared the bag to the Studio 54 era fashionistas in the 70s and 80s. You could hold the bag under your arm while boogieing the night away.

This outfit samples both disco and punk to create a purely modern sex goddess look. The floral Almost Famous dress is ruched down the front with an asymmetrical hem, and reminds me of divas like Diana Ross or Donna Summer. I added a pair of Enzo Angiolini cutout t-strap pumps in caramel and gold for class (the disco era was heavily influenced by the 30s, so these would have been perfect!). Adding the American Rag rhinestone shouldered denim vest takes the look from discotheque to CBGB’s as quickly as a subway ride downtown.

Smokin’.

a look back at josie natori’s pajama party and a look forward at the aw2014 holiday collection

Remember that time I told you about the pajama party at Josie Natori’s new boutique back in August? So I finally got caught up on all my folders and found these awesome photos:

Looks like everyone had a good time, right? There was a photo booth, they did origami, and had fortune cookies…josie2

And doesn’t that look like cans of Sofia Coppola sparkling wine to you? It does. I know those pink cans anywhere. josie3

It looks like Josie Natori stopped by and someone with really cute shoes as well. I missed it, but don’t let that stop you from enjoying the memories.

Then I got invited to this- and of course ended up missing it for whatever reason. July was like that for me. I didn’t get back on my grind until August. Maybe I had a Saturn return or something. No matter what I did- I just never arrived anywhere.

Anyway, I was flipping through the Natori Holiday Gift Guide and decided that no matter what- I had a duty to bring this loveliness to the blog. I’ve been dying to do a lingerie post, and now here it is!
