In The Fashionista's Closet: Soul Train Line

I deliberately put this outfit together and laughed so hard when I saw these pics because I look SOOOO 70's it was ridic! One of the teacher's aides told me that I looked like I belonged on Soul Train and I gleefully replied "Thank you!"
Hair: Old twistout in a side puff
Sunglasses: Bluebird Vintage
Shirt: Zara
Belt: Target
Clutch: Vintage 
Bracelets: Assorted
Jeans: MNG by Mango (before they were in JC Penney)
Wedges: Steve Madden

(same pic in black and white)
This looks like my yearbook photo from Cooley High.
"Grooviest Chick from Class of '75"

I wasn't going to use this pic because my butt looks huge but this is indeed what it looks like. 
Baby got back...

A little pre-k kid has it out for me.
He told me last week "What's wrong with your hair? You're hair looks like you didn't fix it today." I was kinda speechless. I laughed and told him to go to class. I saw him in the hallway yesterday and he said "That's not your hair!" I wanted to tell him, "Kid, just because you see your mom take her hair off at night doesn't mean that everyone wears fake hair." But I didn't. BUT I wanted to.
He's bullying me, what do you want me to do?

 I was on the phone with Reiko when I saw this photo and began laughing so hard I couldn't talk. 
I'm only missing the big wicker chair in the background...

Like so...

 Check out some recent blog love I've gotten from around the web:

Minister of Style  (I meant to post this eons ago, I forgot!)

Yvonne 4 Eyes Don't forget her Etsy shop! (I want those Eye Love Louis No.1 hang tags)

Dress with Courage She named me as one of her favorite thrifting personal style blogs (and no money exchanged hands!)

I want to thank everyone for their support of my little space in this big world of bloggers as I maneuver and misadventure through life and outfits, it really does mean a lot.

You already know that any reference to the 70's, Good Times or Soul Train is a compliment in our book:)

You know how I feel about the pants. They need to be in regular rotation.

That last picture...the What's Up picture...You stoopid!
