Today's Everyday Fashion: The '90s Called

Is there a decade that's not in style right now? I've been embracing '70s flares for fall, yesterday's dress had a retro '50s flare, and today's look is right out of the '90s, and I'm loving absolutely all of it. I wore this look for a friend's fundraiser on Saturday night (you may remember her equine charity from this post). This old dress is a little too big up top, so wearing a black bralette underneath was the perfect solution. It matched the lace trim on the bottom and looked like part of the dress. All I'm missing is the velvet choker to be straight out of the '90s - arguably the most trendy decade for fall. Will you be recycling or trying any '90s fashion this year?

I've been contemplating this dress for months and finally took the plunge! I can vouch for this brand because I have several Chi Chi London dresses already, but I must've gotten a lemon because the zipper broke as I was putting it on. I was able to snap a quick picture in it, but it's not wearable until I exchange. I'm also super tired behind those sunglasses - I am convinced anyone can look glam with some cat-eyes and red lip gloss! I ordered several more dresses I'll be sharing this week as I try them on and decide which ones to keep for upcoming events (mostly weddings and work events). Do you give this red rose dress a thumbs up or a thumbs down?

Today's Everyday Fashion: That '70s Girl

I'm loving flare jeans for fall fashion, but while the weather is still warm, I'm also brainstorming ways to wear them for summer! The great thing about high waist flares is that they pair perfectly with crop tops. I haven't had jeans with a high enough waist to wear with this old floral top until now. The end result is so very '70s!

ps. I found this t-shirt for the half the price the day after I posted an outfit with it. (Doh!) Wanted to let you know because it's only $15-22 on Amazon, versus $38 at Express. Way better deal!
