Trends…trends…trends–they come…they go…they repeat, just like history!

So, how does a fashionista keep up with the trends while still having her own unique style? Well–let me answer that for you *wink*

On a recent trip to the mall, I went into Forever 21 just to browse. While shopping around, I stumbled upon some vintage-inspired pieces that I just had to have. The following four items were being considered as hot “new” trends when, in fact, the styles are anything but new *wink* The colors, the necklines, the buttons, the everything are little repeats of pivotal trends from the 60s and 70s.  

And I rest my case *wink* These ensembles are from the 70s. Pay close attention to the green skirt on the left, the socks with heels, and the button details on the skirts on the far right. See the resemblance? Oh, how I do love fashion history :)

Now, before I go off on a fashion history lecture *wink* let’s take a look at this week’s Weekly Whistle which includes two–YES, TWO–fabulous outfits *wink*

Look 1:

When I first tried this look on together, I thought it looked like something a modern Nancy Drew would wear. What do y’all think? *wink*

Look 2:

This look gives a more 1970s feel with the colors and boho vibe of the blouse + the skirt reminds me SO much of the green skirt pictured in the vintage picture!
