I got inspired to put together a 70's look when I was reading old issues of groupie magazines late one night. I was looking at a picture of girls dripping in beads, wearing huge platforms with tiny suede shorts when it dawned on me that there were no hot pants in my life.
I knew my mom was going to be doing some shopping in town while I was busy with something else, so I asked her if she would look for some hot pants while she was out. Actually, I wrote a note asking her to look for hot pants and left it on the stove with my credit card on top of it since I wouldn't be seeing her in the morning. We live in a crazy people house where its normal to find handwritten notes about hot pants lying around.
She took me up on my hot pants mission and came up with these amazing paisley shorts from Free People. I have the best mom ever :) I'm wearing them with a leather 70's vest and belt. Also wearing a 30's piano shawl purchased on my recent trip to Tulsa–amazing! The tights are my absolute favorites, sent to me by Hue.
The skull necklace I'm wearing was made by my grandma. She gave it to me for Christmas–thank you so much grandma, it's so beautiful! I'm pretty lucky, I have a grandma that makes amazing jewelry and a mom who likes to go hot pants hunting.
