Look of The Day: Back On the Scene, My Favorite Color Is Green!


First Day of Spring, y'all! Not only is it a new season, but it's also the natural new year! Before the Gregorian calendar was created, based off the Roman Empire's Julian calendar, many ancient societies celebrated and recognized the spring as the new year. The death of winter and rebirth of spring and all things new. That's another story for another time, let's get into this look though!

Green is definitely one of my favorite colors. It symbolizes growth, nature, and it's flat out fabulous! Now this look in particular? I've been wanting to wear it for thee longest and finally came through with it. Initially I was going to rock a pair of kitten heel slides with it, but I think my oxford shoes really set the look off.

As you all know (and if you didn't, ya know now!), I'm a huge fan of the 1980's steelo. While this is definitely an 80's look, there's a 1940's vibe going on too (hence the shoes and high waist trousers). In vintage fashion communities, we'd call this "80's Does 40's". An 80's look with 40's influences. It's giving me a hint of Janet Jackson's 1989 "Alright" music video!












I believe the white Karen Scott blouse is actually a pajama top! It has a silky, brocade-like texture. Nonetheless, I loved pairing it with this look, especially alongside the vintage Hermes scarf. 

I'm a big fan of mixing different textures and prints together as well. One of my favorite standout pieces from this look has got to be the Monzo & Franco black and white houndstooth print purse. This screams vintage! Houndstooth is a classic pattern and can work well with almost anything.

This look gives an 80's secretary vibe with a 40's edge. Until next time, lovelies!
