As you know from the sartorial archives of c&é that trends are not my forte. Sometimes it’s
because of cost, but other times it’s because I don’t see myself often wearing those pieces.
I don’t know, however, what came over me for this outfit. See, I’ve head this DVF dress in my
closet for quite sometime and styling it was a bit tricky. With its puffy sleeves,
corset and pleated waist, and covered buttons made this the quintessential trend piece to invest
in. Luckily with the 70s style making its way this season and next, I dug this beauty out
from the black hole of my wardrobe.

And this 70s trend? I’m not hating it…

fashion shy

Everywhere I lived in my life from Florida to Ohio to DC, style was a uniform. The girls wore
uggs and north face jackets at university, DC was adorned with a blazer atop typical east
coast sorority girl trends, and Florida with its pukka shell necklaces and Old navy colorful
flip-flops {I owned a wholesale load, like I won a sweepstakes}. So now walking through the streets
of London, where people are incredibly diverse, the sartorial uniform differs from person-
to-person. And so it seemed fitting to try new things and embrace the style with a bit of trend.
