Last post of 2008

Today we travel back to 1981 with Alec R. Costandinos who gives us an example of casual fashion back then and that it's important to take some time to relax and think on our dreams, experiences etc.

On this day, the last of 2008, regardless of the fashion I consider it important that we look back at our year and analyze our flaws, positive traits, critical and joyful moments...and that we come up with new dreams and goals for the upcoming year.

I would like to thank all you who have made the existence of this blog possible throughout this year. When I began this blog 6 months ago I didn't think of the response it would have, for which I'm grateful for. Even though I'm no expert, I find it enjoyful to share with all of you a glimpse to the fashions of past decades and their modern reinterpretation, afterall fashion is cyclical.

Hope everyone has a great New Year's Eve. Best wishes for 2009!!!

Jefferson Hack

Although I wouldn't wear a white suit like Jefferson Hack's in Fall/Winter, he managed to pull it off this fall at a party. Besides the suit what makes this picture interesting is that it shows Jefferson enjoying the party. I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday parties :D

That 70s Show

That 70s Show is one of those great TV shows from the late 90s and early 00s. I guess everyone here has seen it more than once or at least a fragment of it, so I don't feel it's required for me to describe the plot.

It's one of those shows which gives you the opportunity to relate its plots with your own experiences, have a good laugh, and be exposed to lots of 70s fashion, decor, culture, music, & way of life.

Merry Christmas

I'd like to wish a Merry Christmas to all of my readers :) Below an ensemble that is a perfect example of the Romantic style from the late 60s. And of course you could purchase it at the legendary Carnaby Street.

Must wear

A must for this Holiday season's parties...classic and timeless elegance by YSL. It's worth noticing the Wayfarer shaped black frame eyeglasses.

Bowl of cereal

Hayden Christensen eating a bowl of cereal and looking very much like James Dean. Nothing more classic and rebel than a leather jacket and jeans.

And the beat goes on

Another pic from Bianca Jagger's legendary birthday bash at Studio 54 in 1977...Bianca Jagger, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Mick Jagger, and Alana Hamilton. All perfect examples of the styles and night fashions in 1977.

I'm back after some time and sorry for the delay but these last weeks were kind of hectic for me...

Anyway since the holiday season is about to begin, and with that many holiday parties I thought it would be good to post some photos that may serve to you as "inspiration". Below you can see some shots from a FW 08 09 campaign, yet I don't remember exactly at the moment if they're from the Zegna campaign or another...I'm someone who doesn't pay a lot of attention to brands, I care more for how it looks.

These outfits are very classic and elegant, and reminiscent of the mod styles from the 60s and even echo the 70s in some way. A look that can be achieved in a very simple and inexpensive way. All you need is a turtleneck and a jacket, preferably velvet for winter. It's probably a look that I've posted a lot here in this blog but I just find it perfect.
