I have a pretty big collection of “70’s does Edwardian/Victorian” clothing. I talked a little bit a few weeks ago about my obsession with era revivals…I love the influence of 1940’s and 1880’s on 1970’s trends. There were so many designers who did it so well! Last night my fiancee and I rewatched Picnic At Hanging Rock, a haunting 1970s Australian film set at the turn of the century in a girl’s school in the outback. The costuming in it is insane, if you want some “70’s does Edwardian” inspiration.

I’m wearing some cheap thrill eBay purchases here. The top is 70s/early 80s Laura Ashley, and the skirt is a designer I’m trying to collect at the moment. This Bill Blass coat is something my mom gave me years ago, she got it at Genesis thrift store here in Dallas. It is seriously my favorite coat of all time! The print and hang are so beautiful. The bag is my Ferragamo Fiamma, and the earrings are Dolce & Gabbana.

These shoes…don’t even get me started about how much I adore them. They are by Rochas, and they are everything the period-drama loving nerd in me dreams about. I’ve had them for a few years now and everytime I wear them I just wish I had another pair, so as to never worry about scuffing these up. I’m crazy! But seriously, Rochas…please re-do these boots soon!

I went hunting online for more granny boots last night to see if I could find any I love as much as these boots. There are some amazing options and a lot of them are on sale!

Happy New Year everybody!! I hope you had a great NYE and the new year holds many exciting things for you. As much fun as the holidays were, I am ready to get a head start on this year’s upcoming projects. There is so much in store ahead!

My 2017 got off to a slightly anticlimactic start as I am just getting over a stomach virus from hell. It’s apparently the one that is shutting down school systems lately, so if you haven’t gotten it yet, be warned! It was no joke, I think I lost about 5 lbs in a three day window. It feels great being able to eat food again!

I’ve been repeating this outfit lately. The belt is vintage Yves Saint Laurent and when I unpacked it during the move it inspired me to style a few looks with it! Here I am wearing it with an oversized white button-down by a Korean brand called Minitz purchased at Elements Boutique, Junya Watanabe jeans, Jimmy Choo kitten heels, and a Thom Browne for Black Fleece bag. For a similar corset look try this belt over at ASOS, I’m dying over it!

Also, really good deal alert!! I was looking on the Real Real for this belt that I am wearing and noticed they are having an extra 20% off deal on most of their site. Get over there because there are some amazing finds to be had! I just bought myself a pair of Roger Vivier boots that are heart stopping.

My favorite things to buy are shoes obviously, but surprisingly belts are a close second. I am constantly searching for them. A good belt can carry your wardrobe through the decades. Below are some insane designer belts on sale from the Real Real, get your hands on them while the deal lasts!
