This month's Ahead of the Curve theme is A Borrowed Decade. While out thrifting last week I came across a vintage blouse from the 80's that was crafted with a 70's inspiration. It's totally not my typical style but something about it was calling out to me, and it was perfect for this month's theme. I'm not the type of girl to pick up pink clothing, in fact I'm not sure I even own another pink top, but the ruffles! Oh how I love ruffles! I'm still trying to adjust to my lighter hair color, and with that comes some wardrobe color changes as well, so I figured what the heck? Let's do this! So now I own a pink blouse. I have to be honest, not a lot of thought went into this look. Sometimes I just start with hair and makeup, work my way to the clothing, and just run with it. There are things I love about this look such as my new blouse and hair, However, there are things I would change up next time. I am not totally loving the skirt I picked from my closet to wear, it's just something I've had kicking around for two years that I though fit the bill. I was going for an early 70's hippie vibe, but in hindsight I should have gone with the black, three-tiered ruffle skirt I own for more of an 80's look. Looking at the photos after they were taken I could see a hint of Jem and the Holograms and I regret not seeing it sooner and running with it. Guess this look will just have to be the lovechild of Janis Joplin and Jem... trippy!
