Ode to the Seventies

by Michelle Lella

I felt like I was teleported to another time when I wore this outfit! The bell sleeves and floppy hat made me feel like a movie star from the 70's!  Don't worry I didn't let this get to my  head though...  I love having a common theme when putting an outfit together.  It really helps the whole outfit feel cohesive.  It is important to hint at the overall theme, but not shove it in anyone's face.  You want to feel and look like you're wearing an ensemble, not a costume.  I have learned this the hard way and wound up looking like Sailor Moon...I have to remind myself I'm going somewhere like the mall, not Comic-Con or the Renaissance Fair.
