What I Wore: 1970s Roman

Skirt, thrifted; shirt+scarf acting as belt, hand-me-down vintage fabric; shoes, Birkis; earrings, Claires

It was insanely hot today, and when I got home from my run and had take a shower, I decided it was far too warm for anything other than my lightest and breeziest skirt. The draw back to said skirt is that it is virtually see-through, and in consequence needs something opaque at least a bit of the way down my legs and most of the way around.

This piece of fabric has been hanging in my closet for over a year, maybe closer to two, and I can count the number of times it has been worn on one hand. It got called into play, and when I looked at the finished outfit in the mirror I felt it looked rather 1970s roman inspired, but I can't find any pictures vaguely like it, so maybe I'm imagining things.

Have you ever worn and outfit and realized afterwards that it was inspired by a certain era or style?

  2. That's a great idea and looks lovely. No, I don't think I'm inspired by eras, but I might well have been inspired by films which play in a certain era. xoxo
