DD's Style File - Channeling the 70's

I do have a certain affinity for some of the fashion of the seventies, which was pretty much my inspiration for this look. Since I've loved the midi length, and often sought out dresses and skirts of this type waaay before they hit the runway, naturally I thought a perfect pairing would be a slouch boot. And so a two month long search ensued...and then I found these lovelies on Kohls.com. But they were sold out in my size...

I'll save you the long drawn out story, but let's just say, after an hour long chat with a Kohl's customer service rep (who provided me some of the best service EVER and I'm not even a cardholder), I ended up driving to another state to buy them. Dramatic, I know, but occassionally I tend to go great lengths for my personal style. Besides, there were only three size 6.5's left in the entire country and one of them just happened to be close enough to me. Plus, they were on sale. 

Cream v-neck sweater - The Gap
Goldenrod midi skirt - Forever 21
Taupe slouch boot - Jennifer Lopez for Kohl's
Aubergine tights - JCPenney
Cognac belt - unknown
Gold/cognac multichain necklace - The Limited
Burnished gold/brown bracelet - JCPenney
Sunglasses - Charlotte Russe

 Needless to say, given the effort involved, I'm rather fond of this look... I do love those boots. *smile*
