Oh my gosh. I was flipping through my latest Southern Living magazine and look what I saw! I had to pinch myself - is this 1989 or 2019?

Don't get me wrong - some looks are classic, and wow, some of the fashions from the 1910s are especially amazing, but so are some from just about every decade. But this current magazine ad really threw me for a loop.

Well, sure - I mean, what are some of your likes and dislikes regarding fashion repeats, updates, etc.?

I heard the ultra low rise jeans are coming back. The ones where you have a zipper that's maybe an inch long lol


I fell for them in the early 2000's as a kid/teen.. never again

We recently watched A Simple Favor with Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively (fun movie). Blake Lively's character (and wardrobe) was over-the-top, but she looked amazing. It's very retro. Check out some shots of her wardrobe:

I just bought a pair of bell bottom jeans from Free People.

Not boot leg but bell bottoms.

Oh happy days! Love those bell bottoms!
I adored many of the styles from the 70's and 80's, not so much the skinny pants, cropped pants, etc of later decades.

Well it is Dillard's...


I see a lot of late 90s fashion back in style. I have shoes from middle school that are now trendy again. But I can't bring myself to buy this style of clothing, I feel like I'm buying clothes meant for a 13 year old.

I see a lot of throwback to the 70s especially in the Juniors department. When I saw Mama Mia 2 I was particularly struck by the costumes, some of which were actual vintage.....
