Get Preppy

What I Wore

Sweater - Banana Republic/Jeans - NY & Co/Jacket - Forever 21
Shoes - Thrifted/Watch  - MK/Necklace - Gift

Cliches such as "What goes around, comes around." and "Everything old is new again." seem to fit well with some of the things that are popping up everywhere I look.  I don't know if any of you have been watching "The Carrie Diaries", but I have been enjoying the show, as well as the music and the fashion from 1984.  Add to that show a new "Dallas", a resurgence in the popularity of neon colors and even a blockbuster movie about the Iranian hostage crisis, and it seems like the children of the 80's (who are now business leaders) are attempting to bring back their youth.  A couple of weeks ago I posted an outfit that I was tickled had a comment about it being 80'ish (in a good way).  So, when I put on this argyle sweater, I had another  flashback to my youth, when preppy fashion was all the rage.  I like that in 2013 we can change our look from day to day, going from a 1980's look one day, to a 1960's look the next and then to something that is definitely fresh 2013.  Is there an era of clothing that you particularly like to replicate, or is there one that you wouldn't wear on a bet?


  1. love that green top - I love the 50s and early 60s mainly for the shapes they seem to work best on me
