Diversity Chic | 70s Edition – Can You Dig It?

The 70s are alive and well in 2016! We’re working some of our favorite 70s trends in a modern way that’s perfect for ushering in fall fashion. Take a look at how the four of us channeled the 70s without looking like we’re heading to a costume party. I’ve always been a throwback kind of girl – growing up on the Beatles and the Stones will do that to you, I suppose. That being said…the 70s was never really my jam (besides 70s classic rock, of course). For some reason, I loved the 60s and then glossed over the 70s to focus on the big hair and bright colors of the 80s.

I really only have one memory of trying to relive the 70s and it’s Halloween 1999 – that’s right, the year after my iconic Dana Scully costume. My friend Tally and I (the same friend who was Mulder the previous year) decided to dress up as Sonny and Cher for Halloween. Why? I honestly have no idea because we weren’t fans and neither were our parents, really. I blame Britney Spears for covering “The Beat Goes On” on her first album. ANYWAY after lots of looking through books and magazines from the 70s, I landed on an iconic Cher look – bell bottoms with a white fur vest. Sadly, I don’t have photos but it was hilarious. Also, no one knew who we were.

Diversity Chic | Spring has Sprung

diversity-chic-spring-4784It’s spring and I feel like I’ve been soaking up every minute of spring weather before the triple digit Texas summer hits! (Although last year we had a pretty mild summer so…fingers crossed).

You know the drill for spring fashion – pastels, floral, lace, etc. While those are all fine and dandy, at this particular moment they’re just not my thing. Now that doesn’t mean in two months I won’t be rocking some floral but at this particular moment, it’s not what I’m gravitating towards. I’ve been pulling out more neutrals from my closet in comfortable but chic silhouettes – which is exactly what this look is. Then to make it more seasonally appropriate, I just accessorize! Also spring makeup…which I might’ve gone a little crazy with here. I blame the Vice 4 palette.
