INSPIRATIONAL POSTER FROM THE 70's "TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF THE REST OF YOUR LIFE"


Another great inspirational poster from the 1970's.  

"Today is the first day of the rest of your life."  

This is a really good thing to remember, especially as we're starting into a New Year:


"The Lord's mercies...fail not. They are new every morning."   - Lamentations 3:22-23

LEATHER LACE-UP WIDE BUTTERFLY BELT & RED STRAW FLOPPY HAT CIRCA 1970's



As promised, here is a re-post from our last post on the Peasant Dress with further detail on the belt and hat.

Wide belts are 'back in' and this one from the 1970's has it all - a lace-up style in leather in a butterfly design. 


Wide-brim 'floppy' hats are also still very popular today, especially for wearing outdoors at the beach, etc.

In the 70's, anything in a natural fiber - such as straw, cotton or leather - was a very popular fashion statement.

SMOCKED PUFFED SLEEVE MAXI DRESS FROM THE 1970's

                     Sweet, innocent look from the early 70's

 
Beautiful floral Maxi Dress from the 1970's.  Ruffled puffy sleeves, high collar, and smocked stitching.

Great additional fashion elements with the addition of a wide lace-up butterfly themed belt and red straw floppy hat.

 
 Thankfully the Maxi Dress has made a return to the fashion scene once again...
