70s - 80s - 90s

Took a weekend trip to Chicago to see one of my bestest buddies Chelsea who lives nowhere near the ocean but has the perfect kinky blonde beach waves and sunkissed skin.

Not only is she  a master wordsmith and one of the many creative elves behind the site E Drop-Off, she also happens to have a super rad tumblr See Lanvin chock full o' style inspiration you will never want to end. Oh and she can make a t-shirt and wedges look just as elegant as a sequin dress. 

Would I lie to you?

Since we both just so happen to be huge fans of shopping and it also happened to be Small Business Saturday, we decided to take a mini vintage tour and check out a few local boutiques to show our support.  Chelsea picked out this cozy striped knit hat at Kokorokoko - a vintage shop focused on their love of the 80's & 90's.  It felt like a living episode of a VH1 Greatest Hits show.

It wasn't until we headed to Very Best Vintage that I could "show my support" when I spotted this 70's floral bedroom peplum top.  I knew I had to take it home when it looked like I purposefully layered it over my Moschino inspired polka-dot and stripe collared shirt (here) trying it on outside the dressing room.  I love that I could easily transition it for night with the right black bra. Push-up of course.
